I fail to see how this is a developer issue. Its a political issue and should be resolved by talking to foundation folks (or talking about it on meta/wikimedia-l). Bawolff (talk) 14:10, 31 July 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Well, think about what needs to be done in order to disable raw HTML and I think you'll quickly see how it's a developer issue. :-) That is, raw HTML was enabled on wikimediafoundation.org because MediaWiki was/is incapable of certain features by default. We've gotta fix that before we can disable raw HTML. --MZMcBride (talk) 17:51, 22 August 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Well, I oppose[edit]

The wiki system is fundamentally flawed at doing many of the thing web designers, developers, and content managers need to do. The design of a wiki is by default ugly for just about everything and looks homemade, amateur, etc. - raw HTML helps the FR team make the fundraising pages look decent and they can collect metrics.

What, if anything, can raw HTML do that wikitext can't? --Yair rand (talk) 19:40, 30 December 2012 (UTC)[reply]
