I have been away for a while. I may have already made a topic with this name, so if this is the case, then I apologize for the dupe thread.

This thread shall be used to make the decision to either switch to Article Comments (Blog Style Posts) or continue to use the Talk Pages. I have constructed a list of some key points to consider.

Pro Talk PageEdit

  • All past discussions are left untouched and easily accesible
  • Consistancy throughout the wiki

Pro Comment StyleEdit

  • Less cluter
  • Easily accesible
  • Easier to follow conversations
  • Better documentation of posts (no need to put 4 ~'s for a sig)

Con Talk PageEdit

  • Hard to read/follow conversation
  • Very disorganized
  • Not everyone uses sig

Con Comment StyleEdit

  • Would require archiving of all talk pages (or those deemed essential to archive)

Personally, I prefer talk pages, they allow people to re-arrange stuff. Important stuff can be put at the top, whereas comments only show the most recent stuff, regardless of how important it is. Sylvanelite (talk) 04:34, October 28, 2012 (UTC)

can't we do both? Slax01 (talk) 04:49, October 28, 2012 (UTC)
No, comments replace talk pages. Links to talk pages become redirected to the comments at the bottom of an article. Sylvanelite (talk) 06:00, October 28, 2012 (UTC)
Then talk pages- no need to change what isn't broken, though I would like to see both. Slax01 (talk) 08:52, October 29, 2012 (UTC)
