One thing to point out. Any Wikipedia user can become involved in any
arbitration case by trying to figure out which events and evidence
are significant and putting that information on the evidence page, or
commenting on talk pages about those issues. Often our litigants
throw a blizzard of stuff at us which is difficult to process.
If there is activity on the workshop page, where propositions are
sometimes initially advanced, comment on those propositions are also
helpful as an indication of community opinion.

What is the reason for the community service assignment? A lot of
times you're supposed to do community service as a way to observe a
group working together, or practice in working together. In just
editing pages you don't see much of the inner workings of the group of
core wikipedians, so helping out with arbitration might give you more
of an insight.
