Abortion case stalls, request for clarification on Δ, discretionary sanctions streamlined
Activity was at a virtual stand-still this week, with only a single edit to the Workshop of the only open case, Abortion. On October 26, the request to amend the Climate Change case was closed, with William M. Connolley's topic ban being modified to allow editing within the topic of climate change, while still prohibiting him from editing articles about living people associated with the topic. Two days later, another request to amend the case was opened, requesting that Scjessey's voluntary editing restriction be lifted. Also on October 26, a request for clarification on the Δ (formerly Betacommand) case was opened, requesting the Arbitration Committee's opinion on whether the community-proposed task of removing deleted images falls under Δ's NFCC-enforcement ban. The request for clarification has prompted SirFozzie to initiate a motion that would open up a new ArbCom case, tentatively called "Review of Δ sanctions".
Finally, a motion was passed this week that applied discretionary sanctions to articles within the scopes of thirteen prior ArbCom cases. All of the affected cases had imposed editing restrictions when the cases were first closed, so the only effect of this motion was to standardize the wording used in those restrictions.
