Description Filip Maljkovic [Dungodung] 2005-08-23 00:50:03 UTC
<dungodung> brion_away: I was wondering... I searched and didn't find this bug,
actually an enhancement
<dungodung> namely, I'd like it if an edit to a subpage of a user's talk page
occurs, the user is notified by the "you have a new message" message
<dungodung> say there's [[User talk:Dungodung/Tasks]]
<dungodung> and someone decides to give me a task
<dungodung> and when he edits the page
<dungodung> I get notified
<dungodung> because it's in my user talk page namespace
<dungodung> but atm, you don't get the notification, because the software can't
recognize the subpages from the raw username
<dungodung> brion_away: do you get what I'm saying?
<brion_away> well, what we could use is a more general message notification system
<brion_away> right now it's a special-case hack
<brion_away> we could use an improved system for, among other things,
system-wide notices (upcoming downtime, etc) as well

So generally, it would be nice to have an enhanced notification system that
would allow users to be notified about almost anything that concerns them.

See . pls. feel free to add your idea onto page . Perhaps I
implement your idea, because I also thought, it could be useful.

EnotifWiki shows the newmessage marker already for changes on one's user page
(i.e. not only for changes on the user_talk page). An extension of the mechanism
to implement your idea is quite easy.

I just tested and indeed there is no notification sent when editing a User_Talk subpage:
