So I'm looking to make changes to the D wiki but I'm not sure who to talk to about such changes.

Currently: Move all other IDEs low-quality down (maybe to Others) and focus on just the few that really works (IntelliJ, Visual Studio Code and Visual Studio). Instead of many options that don't work, why not focus on they few that works?

Why not just go ahead and take charge of that part of the wiki?  It's a wiki after all.

D wiki is badly outdated. This is not a fact but a gut feeling after reading through some of its pages. I was wondering who's owning it myself but never actually dared to just go and update. I just had a feeling it's abandoned. On the other hand why would it be?

Why not?  It's a *wiki*.  Wikis are intended for the user community (i.e. you & me) to go and edit.  That's the whole point of a wiki.  If that wasn't the intention we wouldn't have set up a wiki in the first place.

It's only as abandoned as this community abandons it.  If people start updating it and fixing things when they see it instead, then it will not be abandoned.

I tried looking there for information and examples of getting glfw3
statically linked into my program using LDC and didn't really find anything.

I wonder if adding a page for static linking tips would be useful as it seems to be problematic and compiler and environment dependent? Perhaps I should go ahead and see if I can make a page and see if anyone objects :P

I believe it'll be a useful addition. Please do that.

Yes, please go ahead.  I don't think there's a need to ask. :-)
