@Zoranzoki21 When is going to be VisualEditor (in NS Wikipédia) actived?

When someone (usually, the patch author) schedules it for deployment :-). Just deployed the patch, should be working now!

Why it is not deafult?

VisualEditor is not enabled by default on the project namespaces because they are often discussion pages (e.g. like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)), and we think that VisualEditor currently is a very poor tool for posting comments in discussions (e.g. there is no way to indent your comment). But if on your wiki they are mostly documentation pages (e.g. like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:About), then it's a good idea to enable it.
