Description Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2004-12-29 09:46:08 UTC
Ticking a box ([X]) to enable something is more logical than ticking a box to
enable the disableing of something. In Special:Preferences "Disable e-mail from
other users" should be changed to "Enable e-mail from other users", it's brief
and to the point.
Comment 1 T. Gries 2004-12-29 23:16:59 UTC
I totally agree and have proposed the same some time ago. Together with my work
on Enotif (bug 454) I'll change the behaviour, if the other developers have
nothing against this change.

Comment 2 T. Gries 2005-01-02 23:27:18 UTC
committed myself to implement this
Comment 4 Rob Church 2005-10-12 21:35:31 UTC
I'd be more inclined to have it displayed as "Allow email from other users" myself.
