I strongly second (or is it third?) this. UninvitedCompany has

why this has happened. When I became an admin January 2004, I got about
20 votes of support -- today, any successful nomination with less than
40 supports would be an oddity. (It's also quite likely I would not pass
now, what with editcountitis -- or its cousin,
non-article-namespace-editcountitis -- running rampant.) Our community
has expanded, and our decision-making mechanisms have not scaled along
with it. When was the last time we had a major policy change? It was the
3RR, I think, and that was over a year ago. Pretty much everything since
then has been tinkering around the edges (although things like
[[WP:PROD]] haven't made me lose all hope yet).
Not entirely. We also had the speedy deletion of unsourced images.
