Past experence suggests no after the first month.
Lots of people want to be on the arbcom, but the job *sucks*: dredging
through the worst stupidity on the wiki (one or both participants),
writing up something that would pass sanity check (wouldn't make
anyone looking at it cough up a hairball) and dealing with flak from
all sides. It's a job custom-made for burnout.
And the people you see in AC elections who give you the first thought
"OH GOD NO" and make you vote for *anyone* else.
And we're about to become a top 10 website. w00t!
Committees don't scale too well in general on the wiki.
Hey, AC. How's it been going this year?
Stressful and time-consuming; that's one of the reasons almost half
the members are currently inactive.
