|Amending the Scope of the Ombudsman Commission
|This resolution was approved by the Board of Trustees on November 7, 2015.
- Local policies for CheckUser or Oversight violate or conflict with corresponding global CheckUser and Oversight policies, and
- CheckUsers or Oversighters have violated the global CheckUser or Oversight policies.
The Ombudsman Commission will mediate between the complainant and the respondent (e.g. CheckUser, ArbCom member, Bureaucrat, Oversighter or Sysop). When legally appropriate, the Ombudsman Commission will assist Wikimedia Foundation legal staff or the Executive Director to handle the case.
When the case is litigious, the Ombudsman Commission will be in charge to educate CheckUsers, Oversighters or others about applicable Foundation and community policies.
