As you may have heard, Special:Forum is being retired, and all Forum content is being converted over to Discussions to prepare wikis for migration to the Unified Community Platform (UCP).
Discussions recently received a wave of interface improvements to make the feature more comfortable for Forums users, thanks to input from Forums communities and admins.
When your Forums content is migrated, the transfer process will lock the Forum into a read-only state, and Discussions will be enabled so you can continue to communicate while the transfer is ongoing.
While Discussions does not support wikitext, we’re using a special converter so that your old Forums posts will look basically the same with the same formatting and templates after they have been migrated, with a few very rare exceptions. Note that editing old Forums posts and comments with wikitext on Discussions will break the formatting.
Additionally, Discussions requires participants to have Fandom accounts. You will not be able to contribute anonymously.
Check this archived thread for some frequently asked questions, but otherwise let us know of any questions or comments you may have about this.
