Arbitration report

The Report On Lengthy Litigation

The Arbitration Committee closed two cases this week; one against User:Cool Cat (a.k.a. Coolcat), and another against Yuber and Guy Montag.

Cool Cat

A case against Cool Cat has closed. The ruling prohibits Cool Cat from mediating or restructuring talk pages, and puts him in a one year mentorship. Complaints about Cool Cat's ineffective informal mediation came about when he unsuccessfully tried to mediate a number of articles where he had an editing dispute. Mark Ryan, Tony Sidaway, and MacGyverMagic will be his mentors. Davenbelle, Stereotek (a.k.a. Karl Meier), and Fadix were warned to let other users handle disputes with Cool Cat; they had been criticized for wiki-stalking.

Yuber/Guy Montag

A case against Yuber and Guy Montag has closed. The dispute was mainly over articles involving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Both users were put on one year probation. In addition, Yuber was restricted to editing only under that account, and Guy Montag was banned from Israeli-Palestinian conflict-related articles for three months. Jayjg was also warned against edit warring.
