Description T. Gries 2006-04-08 17:59:18 UTC
Hello, hallo et salut,

I again "pray" to enable the e-mail notification switches for the major wikis now.

Brion, what are your arguments against enabling ? Please give "it" a try. It's
stable since more than two years when you put the code into the CVS and I cannot
see any reason why not to switch e-mail notification on now.

Tom

Does this increase server load too much? If yes, we at least could consider enabling 
this for smaller wikis, as there often isn't such a huge active community.

Only very small increase, when only e-mail notification for changes on user-talk
page is enabled. Brion made statistics last year, and even in en-wiki, there
were only 1.500 user-talk-page changes per day, about 80% of it were foreign
changes, which would trigger exactly one e-mail. Thus about 1.200 e-mails per
day for en-wiki

  $wgEnotifUserTalk = true;

Hey, boys and girls, admins, be finally courageous and switch it on, now.

For de-wiki, the worst-case szenario results in about one additional mail per
minute. It sounds therefore reasonable, to switch that option on.

An opinion poll shows an impressive  majority of positive votes, see

Since some months there is an easy way to do this, see bug 5220#c21 (web feed + Mozilla Thunderbird)!
