I still think it would be useful to have this styling on all pages where discussions take place, so all talk namespaces and some specific pages in project namespace (village pump etc.).

Original Comment

Ich fände die Einleitungszeile bei jedem Diskussionsabschnitt („Letzter Kommentar“ usw.) sowie das Abonnier-Icon auch in Diskussionen in anderen Namensräumen sinnvoll.

Translation: German --> English

Rather, I'm wondering why recent innovations in talk sites are currently limited to ANR and BNR. I would find the introductory line on each discussion section (“last comment”, etc.) as well as the subscribe icon useful in discussions in other namespaces as well

By the way, I do have the Discussion tools beta feature enabled and see the new design on article talk pages like Talk:Apollo 17, but not on this page or others like Wikipedia:Village pump (technical). Is that intentional?
