I'm building a wiki on a shared webhost, who doesn't support node.js.
Of course i love the new VisualEditor, but without node.js, we cannot use it.
Meantime, WikiEditor is really showing it's age. Other wysiwyg editors, like TinyMCE, CKEditor, etc are buggy or no longer supported (mostly the latter).
I strongly believe MediaWiki's social mission compels you to support low-budget wikis. But if WikiEditor continues to be lame and neglected, while VisualEditor gets all the attention, then you're being elitist, and neglecting MediaWiki's social mission.
Looking forward to your reply.
