  • Hi, I was wondering, would it be ok to add a Template:Historical to old talk pages? Since everyone uses message walls as a replacement to talk pages, I thought it would be appropriate to do so, indicating it is archived and such. Thanks.

    • Hello! Are you referring to the user talk pages that were automatically archived when Message Walls was enabled? I don't believe those archives can even be edited, since they're meant to be preserved as is.

    • That's fine. Also, do you think all the forum posts should be archived? besides the official ones? I was thinking through all of them with AWB to do so.

    • I personally do think they should all be archived given the length of time that's passed and my preference for Discussions being the primary format moving forward.

    • Yeah understood. I’m not gonna touch discussions, as I think it is probably is for the better. It’s the Forum: name space where you need to sign your signature to them. That’s what I plan to archive. Thus, can I have AWB permissions? If so, can i use a bot account to do so (User:MechQuesteBot)?

    • Please make an official request for it here so there's a record of it. I know you don't have the required 500 edits, though I don't think that's an issue right now given current conditions. :)
