Description Guttorm Flatabø 2005-06-22 09:11:49 UTC
The system messages 'tog-enotifwatchlistpages', 'tog-enotifusertalkpages',
'tog-enotifminoredits' and 'tog-enotifrevealaddr' are shown in the "Misc"
section of the preferences (Special:Preferences) without any reference to the
watchlist or the notification feature in general.

System messages such as 'Send me an email on page changes' thus seem to imply
that the user will receive an e-mail every time a page is changed, no matter
what page.

The messages should either be changed with references to the watchlist ('Send me
an email when pages on my watlist change'), or the settings should be placed in
their own wathlist section.
Comment 1 Guttorm Flatabø 2005-06-22 09:23:03 UTC
The important part of this bug is the misleading 'tog-enotifwatchlistpages'
system message ('Send me an email on page changes').

Also, the 'tog-shownumberswatching' ('Show the number of watching users') system
message does not give any hint of where the number will be shown.

EnotifWiki shows the number as "[1234]" in all Recent Changes views and
watchlist view behind the edit summary at the end of each entry line. Please see
the corresponding screenshot on http://meta.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enotif 

You can see the numbers live on
http://www.wikipage.de/en/index.php/Special:Recentchanges . This wiki runs the
full latest EnotifWiki version (3.28 for MediaWiki1.5alpha1 -- I am currently
migrating this version CVS HEAD)

Yes, but the preferences message is misleading and doesn't indicate that that's
where this will be shown.
Comment 4 Siebrand Mazeland 2009-02-02 09:14:16 UTC
Was fixed a long time ago. These preferences now appear in the (first) "User profile" tab of Special:Preferences, in the section "E-mail" as " E-mail me when a page on my watchlist is changed" and "E-mail me when my user talk page is changed". Closed as FIXED.
