[Foundation-l] System administrators ignoring community consensus

Rarely, a community consensus will emerge for a particular wiki
configuration change that is technically feasible to implement, but is
rejected by the system administrators. Arguably this is a demonstration of a
technocracy. This page serves to document these instances.

If anyone knows of any other bugs/requests, please feel free to list them.
As the page notes, these rejections are rare, but in my opinion they offer a
fascinating look into the "Wikipedia power structure."[1]
