--- Comment #20 from Quim Gil <q...@wikimedia.org> ---
Use case for 3rd party MediWiki sysadmins:

"Mobile used to be read-only, now we just upgraded to 1.22 and we got mobile
editing. It's quite new, kind of testing. Let's see how it goes.

If registered users have problems or cause mess via mobile editing, at least we
have a way to contact them. Also, if they are registered then they probably
have a higher interest in the site, a higher probability to share opinions
about the new feature with us. Motivation and commitment of anonymous users is
unclear, and contacting them is between difficult and impossible. Therefore it
is good to have an option to block anonymous mobile editing while the whole
feature matures. 

Our wiki doesn't need to be at the forefront of MediaWiki experimentation. We
have other problems more mundane, like preventing spam or explaining our users
how to edit, discuss, translate. Let's let Wikipedia and others try first, as
with many other new features. Let us know when you think the feature is ready
form everybody."

PS: I don't come here to fight, just to express a personal opinion based on my
own experience as humble amateur 3rd party MediaWiki sysadmin. I have said all
I had to say in this report.
