Description Rémi Kaupp 2006-04-29 11:00:41 UTC
When an edit is made by a bot on a [[User talk: page, it should not trigger the "you've 
got new message" flag. This would allow minor edits to be done without useless 
notifications, such as link corrections after mass page moves.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2006-04-29 16:02:07 UTC
I'm inclined to resolve this WONTFIX. A number of bots on, for instance, the
English Wikipedia, have the purpose of delivering messages to a number of users,
for whatever reason. Said users would still want notification of the new
messages status.

In addition, I'd be inclined to think that all alterations to the user's talk
page should be notified, but I'm open to persuasion on this point.
