It seems odd that there has been no mention of this here (or, if there was, I didn't notice).
QUOTE
In August 2011, the Arbitration Committee and the Wikimedia Foundation jointly agreed to identify liaisons to enhance communication and co-ordination between the Committee and the Foundation. Below is the internal resolution appointing Newyorkbrad as the Arbitration Committee liaison to the WMF.

In order to foster and enhance collaboration between the Wikimedia Foundation and the English Wikipedia Arbitration Committee, the committee resolves

i) That the role of Committee liaison to the Wikimedia Foundation shall be a designated point of contact between the Wikimedia Foundation and the Arbitration Committee;
ii) That the liaison shall be appointed by an absolute majority of active, non-recused arbitrators, and may be replaced or removed at any time by an absolute majority of active, non-recused arbitrators;
iii) That the liaison shall not be authorized to make binding decisions on behalf of the Arbitration Committee except as specifically and previously authorized by committee directive.

Support resolution: Casliber; David Fuchs; Jclemens; John Vandenberg; Mailer diablo; Newyorkbrad; PhilKnight; Risker; Roger Davies; Xeno
Support i): Cool Hand Luke (did not vote on other sections)
Oppose resolution: None
Not voting/inactive: Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry; Coren; Elen of the Roads; Iridescent; Kirill Lokshin; SirFozzie


The committee further resolves that upon the passing of this resolution, Newyorkbrad is appointed as the Arbitration Committee liaison to the Wikimedia Foundation effective 18 August 2011 until December 31, 2012, or such time as the role is reassigned by the committee.

Support resolution: Jclemens; Casliber; Cool Hand Luke; John Vandenberg; Mailer diablo; PhilKnight; Risker; Roger Davies; Xeno.
Accept appointment: Newyorkbrad
Oppose resolution: None
Not voting/inactive: Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry; Coren; David Fuchs; Elen of the Roads; Iridescent; Kirill Lokshin; SirFozzie.

Internal resolution passed.


As part of the role of the Liaison, Newyorkbrad and another member of the Committee, Coren, attended at the WMF offices on 4 November 2011 to meet with a number of staff in varying roles in order to discuss multiple issues. A teleconference was also held on the same date with other available arbitrators participating, including Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry, Kirill Lokshin, Risker, Roger Davies, and Xeno. Reports of the meetings are now being drafted for discussion amongst the committee as a whole, and the community can anticipate further announcements related to these discussions in the near future.

For the Arbitration Committee, Risker (talk) 08:00, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Hey, Brad... who paid for the airfare and hotel?

What was discussed in person that was impossible to carry out via e-mail and teleconference?

It puzzles me that some of those not voting/inactive joined in the teleconference.

Much as I'm loathe to be that one guy saying something nice, Brad would be the obvious choice for this, IMO.

Basically, there was discussion beforehand about working with the Office, but when it became clear that such a meeting was probable, there was a quick vote to formally appoint NYB as our liason (I fully support it, but wasn't available during the time frame it was up for voting, that's all)

Indeed. Both inoffensive and entirely ineffective, he is the poster-boy for the status quo.

Brad has his angry moments. Now, if he calls Jimbo obnoxious, that would be something!

Well, the thing that got this faux rise from the barrister is this, which calls ArbCom "spineless" and says they lack "balls", and anticipates the "ArbFuck™" that will be received by the petitioner. Brad manages to rise to calling these taunts "obnoxious", which is not the same as calling them "false". He's not really the Angry Young Man, now is he? With no significant career achievements in his professional life that will propel him to the bench, he gets to pretend to be a judge on Wikipedia. In his pretend judgeship he is occasionally stern but always condescending. Hmmph.

Well put. (Of course, they will eventually ban Mr. Delta. It is inevitable.)
