  • I mean no offense when I say this, but I think (not completely sure) that there are more coders. When you click the Edit section, you see the source code. Sure there is the program teaching you how to edit on Wikipedia, but it still requires some time and hassle. Maybe the experimental feature of the GUI editing should be enabled by default, instead of having people to navigate through the settings pane to find it.
