As an admin from the Miraculous Ladybug Wiki, a wiki that somehow ended up with Discussions while still thankfully having the forums intact, I strongly agree with CrystalMomSquad's complaints and concerns (although I haven't heard of any issues with the comment sections being removed). Discussions feels like a different entity from the wiki, and it feels harder to manage. The wiki I'm on has much less staff, but even as one person checking on there, it's frustrating keeping an eye on it. Underage users, real-life photos, links to illegal sources...  Yeah, it's all common problems that feels more common than on the regular forums and wiki. What frustrates me the most is I'm not even sure how many people realize there is a message section of their walls on the actual wiki whenever I send out warnings because most users never edit or interact wtih the actual wiki.

Don't get me wrong, the forums have their own flaws and need for improvements. Also, I have nothing against the people who use Discussions. However, I don't see Discussions being the right replacement for the issues of the forums, and I recommend avoiding this transition as long as possible, something I wish the wiki I'm on had been able to.

As an admin from the Miraculous Ladybug Wiki, a wiki that somehow ended up with Discussions while still thankfully having the forums intact, I strongly agree with CrystalMomSquad's complaints and concerns (although I haven't heard of any issues with the comment sections being removed). Discussions feels like a different entity from the wiki, and it feels harder to manage. The wiki I'm on has much less staff, but even as one person checking on there, it's frustrating keeping an eye on it. Underage users, real-life photos, links to illegal sources...  Yeah, it's all common problems. What frustrates me the most is I'm not even sure how many people realize there is a message section of their walls on the actual wiki whenever I send out warnings because most users never edit or interact wtih the actual wiki.

Don't get me wrong, the forums have their own flaws and need for improvements. However, I don't see Discussions being the right replacement for the issues of the forums, and I recommend avoiding this transition as long as possible, something I wish the wiki I'm on had been able to.
