Description Angela 2004-12-11 01:49:20 UTC
Cross-wiki talk page notification would be a very useful feature so that users
could be notified of messages left on one Wikipedia even if they never visit
that language.
Comment 1 DIG 2005-01-04 22:35:39 UTC
Yes, I also think that this would be a very nice feature.

Angela, 

I have nothing against this feature, but current collaboration is a m*ss, when I
have to ask and ask and ask again and again for CVS/Developer access rights.
This needs to said once. How did the other developers get their "rights"?

I'll take over to implement this (together with E mail notification
http://bugzilla.wikipedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=454 , which is already in CVS 1.5
-- everyone can check this out and test.)

As soon, as we have 1.5 running, changes of user_talk pages of every wiki will
trigger an email notification (if this is enabled by the sysop). This has
nothing directly to do with single user-login see also
http://meta.wikipedia.org/SUL again.

Brion and JelUF:
Can you add for me a permanent(!) statistik of foreign (i.e. not own) changes on
user_talk pages for _all_ wikis (as you did in August 2004: 1000 changes on
enwiki - 200 own changes = 800 "foreign" changes. this will be the maximum
number of e-mail notifications per day)
Comment 3 T. Gries 2005-01-04 22:50:25 UTC
I forget to say, that the http://bugzilla.wikipedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=454 uses
table watchlist not only for sending the e-mail notification for user_talk pages
(if this is enabled), but also manages now the "You have new message" talk page
notification. 

This is, why I offer to take over treating this bugzilla.

This issue might be better solved by solving Bug 57.

Since the successful implementation of SUL, this idea should be given a second-look...

Comment 9 とある白い猫 2008-08-15 12:35:40 UTC
Does this have any hope of implementation? It looks like it had been forgotten for good.
Comment 10 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2008-08-15 13:53:43 UTC
Not for good.  Someone just has to code it.
Comment 11 Timeshifter 2010-04-08 05:46:58 UTC
This may work, and has been getting some discussion: 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Integrated_watchlists
Comment 12 Thana 2010-04-12 00:19:26 UTC
This can simulated using javascript and the API (format=json) except it requires using the watchlist token and might not be terribly efficient.

Comment 14 matanya 2012-07-26 11:55:50 UTC
probably going to be solved with new notification system:

Comment 15 Alex Monk 2012-07-26 12:15:25 UTC
Looking at that screenshot it seems to already have been solved, but not deployed to WMF sites yet.
Comment 16 Quim Gil 2014-05-17 00:48:24 UTC
As far as I'm aware, Echo doesn't provide cross-wiki notifications. I don't know whether Flow has this feature in their roadmap.

This is the subject of an RfC: [[mw:Requests for comment/Global notifications]]. It's in the long-term roadmap of "Flow", but for Flow to have it, Echo also needs to support it.
Comment 18 James Forrester 2014-05-17 07:14:49 UTC
I don't think it's reasonable to list this against MW 1.24; removing milestone.
Comment 19 Quim Gil 2014-05-17 17:20:39 UTC
Sorry, I just wanted to define the version.
