AWB has been changing the position of references on enwiki since 2009, a feature that many editors have complained about. I asked an AWB developer, Rjwilmsi, how to remove this. He said I should demonstrate consensus, then a request should be opened here.
An RfC to that end has just been closed. The closer wrote: "It would be an understatement to say these sorts of edits are controversial and that they fall far short of consensus. This constitutes a clear consensus to halt these edits." https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Village_pump_(proposals)&oldid=756499540#RfC:_AWB_bot_ref_reordering
I'm therefore opening this to ask that the feature be removed from AWB.
