Hey thanks for digging that up. That’s a really interesting insight. Who would have thought making important decisions based on a democratic process would lead to a crappy outcome.
I sighed deeply at this: “[The community thought that] we were doing too much to determine how Wikipedia was displayed.”
Agreed, Wikipedia should do less to determine how the content is displayed. In fact they could remove
font-size from their CSS, at least then we’d get 16px font (on most devices).
I wonder, if Wikipedia is open to the community, how do we petition them to help lift them out of the 1990s?
