User talk sections, disabling of autoconfirm requirement, and new user warning project

For consistency reasons, I have reverted the wiki back to User talk pages. This move can be reverted if needed.

I have also disabled autoconfirm requirements on this wiki only. This is because I feel that requiring autoconfirm access goes against the wiki way. To combat this, a new user warning series will be added very soon. Anyone may use these templates, and it allows you to warn users for behaviour. Also coming soon are administrators' noticeboards for vandalism and (hopefully) Wikipedia's Twinkle gadget.

Elevatorpedia and Elevator Community Wiki are not affected by any of the above.

Wikia Maps

Recently I found that Wikia added a new service called Wikia Maps. I also watched wikia's advertisment.

I think that the Wikia Maps service would be a great improvement to this wiki as the map will allow you to pin elevators in their geographic location without the need of a separate custom Google Map.
