The recent community initiative with the highest impact I can think of is surely what Platonides and other members of the global (technical) community did on Platonides noticed a configuration error on CAPTCHA was required for all edits since 2008. The error was fixed in April. <>

Fresh stats produced by the WMF show that in May and June this produced a decrease of overall vandalism (or rather, of reverted edits) with a shocking +58 % increase of productive edits by IPs and +23 % for registered users. It seems may see the end of the decline after many years. :)

Discussion is ongoing on how will address this growth. Part of the community may think that "nao estamos preparados para crescer".
