This came up today having been mentioned by a user in their discussion post about whether we should stay with talk pages or change to Message Walls. Annabeth asked this in a blog a couple of years ago and did not get but one or two responses to the question in the comments. So I am bringing up the subject again, and want to hear what the others of you want. Talk pages are what we currently use and when you are left a message on it by another user a notification comes up in the bottom right corner. And with talk pages when responding one is supposed to respond on the talk page of the user who messaged you. Message Walls are a feature that can be activated by an Admin and would replace talk pages and automatically archive conversations on talk pages when enabled. With Message Walls the most recent conversation is on top and each conversation is separate from the others. Of course each conversation started on a message wall needs to be given a name. Message wall conversation are very similar to forum posts and with those the response would have to be made in the conversation on the users talk page where the conversation was created. The notification when one responds to a conversation or a conversation is started appears in the same place the forum notifications appear. So that means no matter if the conversation is not on your user page anytime a response happens to a conversation you created or are a part of on message wall you would get a notification for each time there is a new response.
Anyway, I want to know what the others of you think. Please vote in the poll below and if you have anything to say about this matter don't hesitate to say something in the comments below.
