Title:

English Wikipedia Arbitration Committee: What is happening, where it is going, and what does the community want to ask?

Type of session:

Round Table

Session theme(s):

Community Engagement, Governance & Strategy

Abstract:

This discussion will feature a discussion with current English Wikipedia Arbitrators about the committee's work and how arbitrators approach making decisions on cases. Topics will include: devolving checkuser block appeals to the checkuser group, new contentious topic designations and removals, and how the decision-making process on ArbCom has changed (or not changed) with the addition of several new members in 2024. Afterwards, the panel will take questions and comments from the audience about the Arbitration Committee's work and procedures.

Moderated by Newyorkbrad, a former arbitrator, several Arbitrators have indicated interest in joining the panel: confirmation on the exact lineup will be made closer to the date (as Arbitrators confirm whether they will be attending this year’s conference).

Previously presented?

Similar panels and roundtables happened at WikiConference North America 2023. Since there are new members on the committee, this year's composition of the panel will be different from previous years.

Special requests:

Multiple microphones will be helpful so audience members can ask question and arbs can answer more quickly (less time passing around the mic).
