Arbitration report

The Report On Lengthy Litigation

The Arbitration Committee closed two cases this week. In addition, a motion passed in a prior case.

Wheel war case

A case against administrators involved in a wheel war was closed on Wednesday. As a result, Guanaco was desysopped, MarkSweep was banned from userbox-related administrative actions and cautioned regarding the use of rollback privileges, and StrangerInParadise was placed on personal attack parole for one year. The dispute involved abuse of administrative privileges, not all involving userboxes, and incivility and disruption. The Arbitration Committee also banned Guanaco from requesting adminship, in light of his previous desysopping in a prior case.


A case against ZAROVE was closed on Tuesday. As a result, ZAROVE was banned indefinitely from articles relating to Acharya S, and prohibited from making any comments relating to Acharya S. ZAROVE, a frequent editor on the page, had released personal information about the subject of the article.
