Voting is nearing completion on the proposed decision of the Manning naming dispute case, brought by TParis. The case involves the move of the Bradley Manning article to Chelsea Manning, after Manning’s attorney announced Manning’s wish to be known as Chelsea. The article was moved back to Bradley Manning after a move request determined there was no consensus to move the article. A second move request with a comprehensive survey of reliable sources resulted in a move of the article back to Chelsea Manning.
The case focuses on conduct. Sanctions have been proposed for thirteen editors; five of these proposals are currently passing. It was noted that seven editors named in the proposed decision had not participated at the proposed decision talk page; these editors were being notified of the discussion to allow them to respond.
The Ebionites 3 case, initiated by Ignocrates involves a long-running dispute between two editors over a 2nd century religious document. The workshop phase of Ebionites 3 closes 13 October, and the proposed decision is scheduled to be posted on 15 October.
