Any thoughts about installing the VisualEditor on here?

Since this wiki runs on Mediawiki software I believe that the VisualEditor could be implemented on here. I think it would make editing somewhat easier, particularly with tables. —SirMoogle ( 💬📝) 05:01, 11 May 2020 (UTC)

I've been considering it, but it's at least a few months out. It takes some additional infrastructure in the backend, but also doesn't always make the best wikicode. We'll probably have to test it out. -- Prod (talk) 07:21, 11 May 2020 (UTC)
I disagree with SirMoogle. The visual editor creates lots of "junk wikicode", especially in tables. I often clean up unnecessary code on some wikis that favor the visual editor, and as a result webpage sizes get usually cut down by 50%. Bigger pages are heavier to load, and if someone has limited connection or an old device, they will have difficulties in visualizing the pages. --Abacos (talk) 11:16, 5 July 2020 (UTC)
