Voting closed on 21 November (as far as I can tell!) yet people were still messing with this page after that. So it was locked 2 days later. That idiot genius SarekOfVulcan withdrew before it was closed. (He's still not a "popular insider" and never will be.)
It is now 12 December and still no smoke from the magic chimney. I have no doubt that ugly political struggles are going on in private over the vote tally and how it should be falsified, in order to insure that the "correct people" become arbitrators. And it remains the same petty and meaningless shit that it was when Jimbo created the Arbcom in 2003.
Some members of the "community" hold the strange belief that Arbcom was started by "community action", which could not be further from the truth; it was created by Jimmy Wales, on the WikiEN-l mailing list, on 4 December 2003. By fiat, with the first members thereof "elected" by Wales. And no one else.
