Oppose - Just because something is old doesn't mean that it isn't any good. While this is one of the oldest Fandom wikis in existence, it has been using talk pages and wiki-style forums for a very long time now. And the wiki has been well defined by its use of talk pages and wiki-style forums.

On top of that, this wiki isn't very accustomed to a lot of the newer features that Fandom has introduced in the past few years, namely Discussions. Since this wiki has a lot in common with Wikipedia regarding its extensions, it wouldn't really make sense to just suddenly decide to enable Message Walls and Discussions.

Message Walls are being phased out by the newer mobile friendly equivalent of the same name on the UCP platform, so by the time we've gotten used to using message walls on this wiki, we'd have to get used to it in its mobile friendly and wikitext free form once the wiki has migrated to UCP.

All in all, I feel that replacing talk pages and wiki-style forums with message walls and discussions is highly unnecessary, and doing so would be more detrimental than beneficial to the wiki. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 02:10, September 30, 2020 (UTC)
