How many Wikipedians does it take to change a light bulb?


69:

  • 1 to propose the change
  • 5 to support
  • 1 to dispute whether the change is a needed process
  • 7 more to pile on from IRC and join the dispute
  • 2 to open a request for comment
  • 37 to vote at the straw poll
  • 5 to say votes are evil
  • 1 to MFD it
  • 9 to object until the MFD gets speedily closed
  • 1 to mark the proposal historical.

Afterward on AN, all opposers claim the consensus favored darkness.

Thanks to Xavexgoem and Dendodge for the brainstorm.

Actually, I think that 69 is an underestimate. Changing Wikipedia appears to be a very tedious, long, slow process.

The proposal to change the status quo of darkness failed to achieve community support.
