Can someone please tell me, in precise technical terms, what is wrong
with Wikia's WYSIWYG editor and why we can't use it?
I have heard that it has bugs in it, but I have not been told exactly
what these bugs are, why they are more relevant for Wikimedia than for
Wikia, or why they can't be fixed.
Years ago, we talked dismissively about WYSIWYG. We discussed the
features that a WYSIWYG editor would have to have, pointing out how
difficult they would be to implement and how we didn't have the
manpower to pull off such a thing. Now that Wikia has gone ahead and
implemented those exact features, what is the problem?
