Wikia's new Message Wall feature has become available so I have enabled it.

In case you haven't heard about it, the Message Wall replaces user talk pages.

Anytime anyone replies to a message you have left on a user talk page, it will be shown in the notification section at the top right of the screen.

This means that when someone leaves you a message on your talk page, you should reply to their message directly on your talk page.

There is a box below each messages which says "Post a reply", simply click there and type your response.

All previous talk pages have been automatically archived, there is a "See archived talk page" link to you talk page archive at the bottom of your Message Wall page.

Unfortunately, only admins can edit archived talk pages, so if you need something edited for any reason, please contact an admin. Or leave a message below.

Update: 2015-01-08. All users can now edit archived talk pages, as it was always possible, but Wikia Staff never told me about it despite me mentioning this issue to them several times.

Update: 2012-02-08. Due to a number of issues, I'm considering disabling Message Wall. Unfortunately, this means any Message Wall conversations will in inaccessible.

Update: 2012-04-02. I was promised that the issues would be addressed. Some have, some haven't.
Update: 2015-01-08. Unfortunately, not much has changed since the last update. Some issues were addressed, some weren't.

For the record, in light of the lack of improvements, I wish I had never enabled it in the first place.
