Please do not edit this page directly unless you wish to become a participant in this case. Only add a statement here after the case has begun if you are named as a party; otherwise, your statement may be placed on the talk page, and will be read in full. Evidence, no matter who can provide it, is very welcome at /Evidence. Evidence is more useful than comments.

Arbitrators, the parties, and other editors may suggest proposed principles, findings, and remedies at /Workshop. That page may also be used for general comments on the evidence. Arbitrators will then vote on a final decision in the case at /Proposed decision.

Once the case is closed, editors may add to the #Log of blocks and bans as needed, but it should not be edited otherwise. Please raise any questions at Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration#Requests for clarification, and report violations of remedies at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Arbitration enforcement.

Involved parties[edit]

Requests for comment[edit]

  • Not applicable in this situation.

Statement by Nwwaew[edit]

Per this CheckUser, it appears Eyrian has either gone rogue or created sockpuppets. I hereby request that the Arbitration Committee desysop Eyrian immediately as an emergency measure to prevent vandalism.

Preliminary decisions[edit]

Arbitrators' opinion on hearing this matter (5/0/0/0)[edit]

  • Accept to examine the matter in detail; there seems no need for emergency action at this point. Kirill 04:54, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
  • Accept per Kirill. I think the matter needs review. FloNight♥♥♥ 21:23, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
  • Accept. As Kirill, no emergency; misuse of admin powers doesn't appear to be happening Matthew Brown (Morven) (T:C) 01:18, 8 November 2007 (UTC)

Temporary injunction (none)[edit]

Final decision[edit]

All numbering based on /Proposed decision (vote counts and comments are there as well)



1) Administrators are trusted members of the community and are expected to follow Wikipedia policies. They are expected to pursue their duties to the best of their abilities. Occasional mistakes are entirely compatible with this; administrators are not expected to be perfect. However, consistently or egregiously poor judgement may result in the removal of administrator status.

Passed 8 to 0 at 17:08, 29 November 2007 (UTC)


2) Wikipedia users are expected to behave reasonably and calmly in their interactions with other users, to keep their cool when editing, and to avoid acting in a manner that brings the project into disrepute. Unseemly conduct—including, but not limited to, personal attacks, incivility, assumptions of bad faith, trolling, harassment, and gaming the system—is prohibited. Users should not respond to such behavior in kind; concerns regarding the actions of other users should be brought up in the appropriate forums.

Passed 8 to 0 at 17:08, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

Responding to the Arbitration Committee[edit]

3) Editors are expected to respond reasonably and in good faith to questions and concerns raised by the Arbitration Committee.

Passed 8 to 0 at 17:08, 29 November 2007 (UTC)


4) The use of sockpuppet accounts, while not generally forbidden, is discouraged. Abuse of sockpuppet accounts, such as using them to evade blocks, bans, and user accountability—and especially to make personal attacks or reverts, or vandalize—is prohibited.

Passed 8 to 0 at 17:08, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

Findings of fact[edit]


1) Eyrian (talk · contribs · blocks · protections · deletions · page moves · rights · RfA) has engaged in abusive sockpuppetry in an apparent attempt to game the system ([1], [2]). He has failed to offer any reasonable explanation for his actions.

Passed 8 to 0 at 17:08, 29 November 2007 (UTC)


Note: All remedies that refer to a period of time, for example to a ban of X months or a revert parole of Y months, are to run concurrently unless otherwise stated.

Eyrian desysopped[edit]

1) Eyrian (talk · contribs · blocks · protections · deletions · page moves · rights · RfA) administrative privileges are revoked. Eyrian may apply to have them reinstated at any time by appeal to the Committee, but not through the usual means.

Passed 8 to 0 at 17:08, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

Eyrian banned[edit]

2) Eyrian (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log) is banned from Wikipedia until he provides the Committee with a satisfactory explanation regarding this matter.
