It's come up several times now and it'd be interesting to get some more thoughts on this. Developers consider community opinion as a large metric of what should or shouldn't be merged. They also look at things like how it impacts gameplay, if it improves the code base as a whole, if it needs a lot of staff policing, if it's easy to abuse to break rules, that kind of thing. Code quality is non-negotiable and isn't up for discussion. Code added must be of sufficient quality to make it in. For the other things though, should devs strictly adhere to community opinion? Should they be making judgement calls based on other factors or only on community opinion?
