    In light of a recent idea that has come into my head, I would like to start a discussion as to whether we should fully enable the article comments feature on my wiki.

    The wiki features describes the article comments feature as an extension that will let people write comments at the bottom of article pages. Other users can reply to the comments, and signatures and time-stamps are automatically assigned. This will replace talk pages on this wiki.

    I've always preferred the talk pages over the article comments option, and I was in favour of disabling the article comments feature. Back in January 2015, a consensus was reached, and the article comments option was disabled.

    In April 2015, the article comments feature was re-enabled, but for the fanon namespace only. However I don't see the talk pages for the namespace being used very often, and thus I have begun to question whether we should keep using them, or replace them, and fully re-enable the article comments.

    The reason I disabled them, was because I always preferred the talk pages, however since this wiki is a lot newer than wikis like The Sims Wiki, it won't really matter if the article comments feature is re-enabled, since we only have a few semi-active users here, and only one full-time user.

    So basically we don't really have any long term wikia users that have been editing wikia for many years that would benefit from keeping the talk pages for the main namespace on this wiki. And even with the comments section fully enabled, we'll still have talk pages inside the project namespace.

    So because of all this, I've subsequently decided to propose that we fully enable the article comments feature, and use it to replace the talk pages inside the main namespace.

    Should we enable the article comments feature completely, so that it will replace talk pages inside the main namespace?

      Oppose -- I feel we should keep talk pages. They're more effective than message walls.


      Green tick
      Support -- Ooh, like that! Yeah, I support!

    • Comment — We'll still have the user talk pages. It's just the talk pages inside the main namespace such as canon Sims that will have the comments feature. There's no way I'm replacing talk pages with message walls.

      Support — Well considering that I'm the person who put this proposal forward in the first place, I obviously support it.
