I love yoga but have been on a bit of a hiatus. I'm hoping to get inspired by sharing what knowledge I have with others on this wiki.  :) Template:Unsigned

Message wallEdit

I admit I'm a bit more of a traditionalist stuck in the ways of talk pages, though so many of the Wikias have switched to comments/walls that it's possible to get used to them.

Do you know if it's possible to only do message wall but not article comments? I kind of like how article talk pages keeps editor comments separate from article itself, it keeps the scroll bar big to get a better sense of the page size, which gets thrown off if a lot of commenting is made. Plus comments only allow single-indent replies.

Also if anyone ever added an offensive comment it would be there glaring at us and only admins could delete it, whereas if someone vandalizes the main article it's easy to revert, and talk page vandalism's something anybody could also revert.

One advantage I do see to message walls and comments though is that they themselves are more resistant to alteration in case people vandalized comments by removing them. Ups and downs I s'pose. +y@talk 22:24, April 22, 2012 (UTC)


Those are some good points. It is possible to have just message wall and not article comments. Maybe we should to that. Lizlux 14:56, May 2, 2012 (UTC)
