1.32 is still supported, and I see no major need for us (looking at the release notes) to upgrade at this time. While being in the latest version is nice, the admins here are busy, and I don't think it is required right now.

Coming from the person who doesn't want to upgrade their operating system (staring at you, MCpillager12) *hehe* Just kidding.

Anyway, you do not always have to upgrade your wiki software version (or any website software) every time a new version comes out. They'll upgrade their MediaWiki software when the time is right.

There are some changes:

Basically, you can block a user from editing or creating accounts.

Blocks are hardly a new feature, unless you mean that you can block an IP from creating accounts only, without blocking editing as well.

He's referring to the introduction of partial blocks (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Block_and_unblock). Again, while that's a nice feature to have, it's not a reason to upgrade by itself.

Also the latest MediaWiki version support visual editing. It should be upgraded.

VisualEditor (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/VisualEditor) is not bundled-in with any MediaWiki release (even 1.33), and it has been around for some time. While I personally would like VisualEditor to be made available for this wiki, Andy has refused to install it citing its complexity (which is true unfortunately).
