Whit's VeesualEediter?
VeesualEediter is ae saffware deveelipmant ineetiateeve bi the Wikimedia Foundation that will pemit fawk tae eedit pages in MediaWiki wioot needin tae learn wikitex syntax. Wi VeesualEediter, formattin pages will wairk fair sicklik til ae waird processor – while eeditin, the tex will luik lik it will efter it's hained.
Why is this chynge being dun?
The mucklest barrier til daein the first eedit, n thaurfore the mucklest barrier til beginnin the path that coud lead til somebodie becomin ae producteeve, expereeanced memmer o the communitie, is the complex wikimaurkup uised bi the auld eeditin windae. Tae increase the nummer o successfu first ettles at eeditin, we need ae better eeditin system. Please read oor langer explanation fer mair details.
Whan will VeesualEediter be enabled oan ma wiki?
The nou schedule fer futur rowoots is posted at VeesualEediter Rawoots. VeesualEediter wis affered til uisers o maist mucle Wikipædias in Julie o 2013. Mair than hauf o Wikipædias receeved VeesualEediter in the laist hauf o 2013. VeesualEediter will be deployed til naurlie aw o the remainin Wikipædias in 2014. Oan the nou, the ettle is tae deploy til Wikipædia steids first, n tae deploy it oan sister waurks thaurefter, cause o the complexitie o some o the chynges that ar necessair.
Why ar ye deployin the saffware even thooch deveelipmant isna finished?
The saffware definitelie isna finished; it haes featurs tae be eikit n issues tae be resolved. Ultimatelie, the best waa tae detect bugs n ideentifie missin featurs is tae hae aes monie fawk aes possible luikin at, uisin n pleyin wi the saffware. While we ken that bugs ar disrupteeve in the short-term, thay will be fixt, n this deploymant is whit lats us identifie thaim aes things that need fixin.

Gif ye'r willin n able, please report the issue in bugzilla in the "VisualEditor" product. Maist muckle Wikipædias hae ae wiki page dedicated til feedback aneat VeesualEediter aes weel; see the leet oan Wikidata. Thaur's ae central feedback page oan aes weel.
Hou dae Ah disable the VeesualEediter?

Gif ye canna fynd onie referance til the new featur that ye'd lik tae suggest, please haun it in uisin the same process uised tae report aen issue.
Will it still be possible tae eedit uisin wikitex efter VeesualEediter becomes the primarie eeditin interface?
Ay. While VeesualEediter will become the defaut eeditin environment, ae methid fer eeditin the unnerlyin “soorce” tex will continue tae exeest. Thaur's nae plans tae remuiv the “Eedit soorce” optie.

Naw. In steid o this, please uise the airtin n template featurs. See the VeesualEediter Uiser guide fer mair aneat hou tae uise VeesualEediter.
Why's ma brouser na supportit?
Biggin ae modern eeditin interface fer Wikipædia n its sister wiki is ae techneecal challenge, bit it's possible uisin modern wab technologies n staundairts. Onfortunatelie, some brousers dinna support monie o the featurs that we need fer VeesualEediter. We'r daein oor best tae support the maist commyn brousers: VeesualEediter wairks weel wi the maist recynt versions o Firefox, Chrome, Opera n Safari, n support fer Internet Explorer 9 n abuin is planned. Houever, ettlin tae wairk aroond the leemitations o aulder brousers wid divert resoorces fe impruivmants that wid benefeet the feck o uisers.
