I'm happy to hear other opinions, but IMHO we *NEED* a WYSIWYG
editor. Many users will be very uncomfortable otherwise, so I'd even
take the risk of slightly defective pages in favor of WYSIWYG.

I'd like to argue with Manuel against a broken editor as it generates
additional work. Without permanent watching and fixing, even content
can be lost.

If we go for pure Wiki-markup, what do we lose?

Some pages might not look as nice as they would but nothing would be
broken/lost. My personal opinion is clearly, better some correct but
ugly pages than nice but broken.

If really necessary, I'd even volunteer to help beginners tidying up
markup ;-)

But I'd not volunteer doing absloutely stupid work of fixing pages
people have destroyed without noticing. You'll have to review any
single edit then! A nightmare.

* I don't see a big need for a real WYSIWYG editor. Wikimedia has
found the biggest online community in the world, not even having
the UsabilityInitiative improvements available for many years.

I know my users. ;)

Trust poeple! They might exceed your expectations :-)


I would not go to Wiki-markup. New users will look at the page, have no idea there is help and not contribute. We should offer a WYSIWYG editor of any kind that works as 100% of the membership can use it. Why would we reduce the contribution rate if we can find a fix?

I would vote to find a working WYSIWYG editor.
