ForumTalk page or Message wall?

{{Forumtop}}
{{Archive}}
I was thinking that we should switch to the Wikia's message wall feature but in order it to be fair, I'm asking community opinions first.

Message wall would be a replacement for talk page, meaning that there with be no talk page anymore. it would be replaced with the Wikia's newest feature called, Message wall. 

It will the operate the same as the current talk page but would be more organized.
Another great feature would be is the notifications system, Although talk pages already have a built-in notification system but it does not compare to the new one; You get a notification even if you messaged a user (on talk page get a notification only when another user posted on your page), messages are more visible and easy to access, and you don't really have to say good bye to your talk page "welcome" message; Message walls would have a nearly identical feature called "Message Wall greeting".

Now to the votes;
*If you would like to support this suggestion, place {{support}}.
*If you would like to oppose this suggestion, place {{oppose}}.
*If you are neutral on this suggestion, place {{neutral}}.

Vote will end in a week (August 14th)

=== Oppose ===
#{{Oppose|The message wall isn't a good feature. its not polished. Its unprofessional and it doesn't work on the monobook skin. I would never support putting it on here, it just doesn't fit what this wiki is. {{sig/KATANAGOD}} ''1954, August 6, 2012 (UTC)''}}
#{{Oppose|Message wall will not improve communication on this established wiki. Not an appropriate system for what this wiki is. Talk pages are more productive, quicker to use and work fine on any browser/computer/skin. Per KATANAGOD. --UserCallofduty4|Callofduty4 (User talkCallofduty4|talk) 2031, August 6, 2012 (UTC)}}
#{{oppose|I'm sorry but after reviewing the message wall feature myself I have come to the conclusion that at this time it is not beneficial for the functioning of the wiki, maybe in the future but not at the moment. If it's not broken, don't fix it.  -- UserAdapool|Adapool (User talkAdapool|talk) 0706, August 8, 2012 (UTC) }}
#{{Oppose|I've come to believe Message Wall is still not as polished as it should be, as KATANAGOD said. Talk Pages are simply much more simple, it just ''works''}} --{{Sig/DarkMetroid567}} 1913, August 9, 2012 (UTC)

'''Closed''' - Message wall will not be enabled. {{sig/KATANAGOD}} ''0031, August 12, 2012 (UTC)''
