Please enable VisualEditor for future newly registered users on Dutch Wikipedia. Future here means after the creation date of this task. Please keep VisualEditor hidden for logged in users who registered prior to the creation of this task. VisualEditor will remain opt-in for them. This also means that future newly registered users can opt-out.
Elitre made an offer on this page. There a handful of people expressed their favor.
The creation of this phabricator task is to express interest in VisualEditor and interest in continued support to devote resources on further development.
As the task creator I couldn't identify real blockers for deployment now. I can identify some people who want to block development, but that is something different.
Some believe T64147 is a blocker. VisualEditor doesn't output each template parameter on a new line. Frankly, Formatting style is a matter of taste or preference. I don't belief newly registered users will start adding complex infoboxes or other templates with VisualEditor. We'll have to watch how often newly registered editors, or after how many edits, will start adding complex templates with VisualEditor.
T51400 or largethumb is been worked on. Newly registered editors will not be able to edit pictures with attributes set by largethumb template. We'll have to watch how many newly registered editors will complain about not being able to edit certain pictures with VisualEditor (and for which reason).
Wikimedia Nederland is trying to implement an Education Program. Representatives of universities and colleges almost always ask if a rich editing experience can be provided to their students in stead of wiki text editing. VisualEditor for future newly registered editors is required for the next steps in implementing an Education program in the Netherlands. This is what the board member responsible for Education program tells me.
This roll out should be a time limited test, for example by automatic roll back after a couple of weeks. In case something really goes wrong an orderly and timely rollback should be possible.
This task has been created by me as a Wikipedia volunteer. Wikimedia Nederland does not decide for the community of Dutch Wikipedia. The community of the Dutch Wikipedia decides for itself whether it wants something deployed or not following processes and procedures set by the Wikimedia Foundation on one side and the editor community on the other side.
