Fæ and Michaeldsuarez banned; Kwamikagami desysopped; Falun Gong closes with mandated external reviews and topic bans
For the second time this year (and the fourth in the history of the committee), there are no open cases, as all three active cases were closed last week.
The case concerning alleged misconduct by Fæ has ended. For violations of common wikipractice and policies Fæ was indefinitely banned from the English Wikipedia. Michaeldsuarez was indefinitely banned for his creation of an external attack site targeting Fæ. For his role in posting undisclosed personal information on an external site, Delicious carbuncle was severely admonished and warned that should future instances occur, s/he will face sanctions up to and including an indefinite ban.
Fæ is limited to one account and denied the option of a clean start. If he wishes to change the username of the one account he may use, he must seek prior permission from the committee. He must make a list of all previous accounts to the committee for public listing. Should he object to the listing of any of these accounts, the committee will advise him as to whether or not they should be omitted. Given his resignation under "controversial circumstances", Fæ must start a new request for adminship should he wish to regain the tools and must link to the committee's statement during his RfA.
The case concerning behavioural issues related to Ohconfucius, Colipon, and Shrigley has ended. Homunculus and Ohconfucius are banned for one year and indefinitely, respectively, from the discussion and editing of topics related to the Falun Gong movement, across all namespaces. Homunculus, Colipon and Ohconfucius have been placed on mandated external review—in the case of Homunculus and Ohconfucius, if their ban were overturned—requiring these editors to seek consensus for major edits beyond grammatical and aesthetic changes. Once consensus has been established, the discussion must be reviewed by an uninvolved editor, after whose approval these editors may proceed.
The case concerning wheel-warring on the Perth article, after a contentious requested move discussion, has ended. For using administrative tools while involved in the dispute and undiscussed reversion of the move, Kwamikagami has been desysopped. For reversing a legitimate administrative action without prior discussion, Deacon of Pndapetzim was admonished; Gnangarra was admonished for reinstating the reverted decision without discussion. JHunterJ was advised to respond civilly to queries regarding his conduct and administrative actions.
Arbitrator Kirill Lokshin has proposed a motion requiring the alteration of any instances of an editor's previous username in arbitration decisions to reflect their name change(s). Any instances appearing within the:
- enforcement log may be updated by any uninvolved administrator on request;
- text of a finding or remedy may be updated by the clerks on request; and
- evidence submissions of a case or other preliminary documents may be updated by the clerks with the committee's prior approval.
