There was a showdown over Visual Editor this week, as the WMF yielded to pressure to change the visual editor's status to non-default, and opt-in. We need to have a serious discussion about what it means to have "community consensus" vs WMF's actions. Can anyone wrap their arms around what "the community" means anymore? People who have the special knowledge and time to seek out RFCs tucked into corners of Wikipedia? Ones who go to Wikimania and are involved with chapters? Newbie editors who don't even know what Village Pump is, much less the many sub-pages where discussions take place?
- Visual Editor showdown and removal as opt-out. Is this really the community consensus? Should we have the concept of "fair notice?" Why does that RFC supposedly speak for the "community?"
- The "Default State" RFC that started in response to Visual Editor, with a majority unfavorable towards VE being the default (472-117, but this is a nonbinding vote) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Default_State_RFC
