Injunction – preliminary protection levels for BLP articles when removing PC
The Arbitration Committee opened no new cases. Two cases are currently open.
During the week, drafter PhilKnight submitted a proposed decision for arbitrators to vote on.
During the week, further comments were submitted in the workshop. Drafter Elen of the Roads is currently expected to submit a proposed decision.
A request for arbitration was filed during the week regarding biography of living persons (BLP) articles and implementing the shutdown of pending changes (PC) on those articles. The Committee passed a preliminary injunction, applying to all administrators (admins), which is effective immediately:
- When an admin removes PC protection from a BLP flagged article, that admin shall
- replace level 1 PC with semi-protection of an equivalent duration, and
- replace level 2 PC with full protection of an equivalent duration.
- Admins who have recently removed PC from BLP articles are expected to assure that these protection levels have been applied to those articles.
