Office actions/Community consultation on partial and temporary office actions/draft
This page is a preliminary draft. It is not a consultation. Opinions as to the use of partial and temporary Foundation office action bans are not currently being solicited and will not be recorded if shared now. This draft is provided to invite your opinions of what the consultation should consist of when it launches, likely in early September 2019. Please share those opinions on the talk page.
This is a [draft] consultation about the existence, purpose, and practicalities of two office action tools: temporary and partial Foundation office action bans. Temporary Foundation bans were envisioned as a potential remedy where concerns have high likelihood of being temporary and/or are able to be redressed by the user. Partial Foundation bans were envisioned to serve to exclude an individual from a single or a defined set of Foundation-supported projects, activities or platforms, either indefinitely or for a defined period of time, without excluding them from the entire Wikimedia ecosystem.
- Please use the talk page to offer ideas on what the consultation draft below should contain and how it ought to be formatted.
- The Foundation is not currently taking input on the use of the stayed partial and temporary Foundation Office Action bans. That input will be requested when the consultation itself opens in September 2019.
- This draft will be open for comments until 30th August 2019. At that point the Foundation will finalize the content of the draft in preparation for launching the actual consultation, likely in in early September 2019.
