Unfinished business

Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Jytdog was reopened on March 9, 2020. Until now, the original 2018 case request was in an unusual state of limbo: it was accepted, but the case will not be opened at this time in light of Jytdog's statement that he is retiring from Wikipedia... on December 9, 2018.

A unanimous decision to reopen the case was reached by Arbcom on March 5 after receiving a communication from Jytdog expressing the wish to return to the community. Committee member Bradv gave the account Jytdog2 the confirmed user permission in order to initiate an Arbcom case.

The case is in its workshop phase as of our writing deadline.

Anti-harassment RfC

An anti-harassment Request for Comment (RfC) under the aegis of the Arbitration Committee was mentioned as a follow-on action during the Fram case last year (see the September 30, 2019 Special report for details). The draft RfC was posted on March 16, and was not yet open for comments as of our writing deadline.


Motorsports case was accepted February 28 as a content issue we cannot resolve, according to Arbitrator David Fuchs. A proposed decision was due March 27 – as of our writing deadline, it has not been posted.

I'm not really sure what point is being made with singling out my comment above as the sole descriptor of the case, as it's not a sentiment that was shared by the Committee as a whole. Der Wohltemperierte Fuchs talk 19:16, 29 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@David Fuchs: Bri probably just wanted to point out one of the whys as to why it was accepted. No biggie. --qedk (t c) 20:47, 29 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
That PD was posted on the 27th and is now basically finalized. I just like to note it when we do actually get something done on time. Beeblebrox (talk) 19:52, 30 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
A relatively simpler case (as evident from the relative silence it was opened and closed in) for a breather. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ --qedk (t c) 07:14, 31 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
The Motorsports case has now closed. See [1]. Clovermoss (talk) 23:34, 30 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
