Wikipedia ArbCom Case Index

Index of all Arbitration Committee decisions

Wikipedia ArcCom Case Index includes the dates, involved parties and final decisions.


Start from this link

What I intend to do as I find time, is to go through the log and post the month and year (as headings), the title of each case as a link to the involved parties list and a summary of the most important aspects of the final decision.

Sep 2009
Two cases
Abd-William M. Connolley
  • cold fusion article, under discretionary sanctions.
  • Abd banned for three months, and for one year from the cold fusion article. Abd prohibited from participating in discussions about disputes in which he is not one of the originating parties.
  • William M. Connolley administrator rights revoked.
  • The community is urged to engage in a policy discussion and clarify under what circumstances, if any, an administrator may issue topic or page bans without seeking consensus for them, and how such bans may be appealed. This discussion should come to a consensus within one month of this notice.
