[Wikimedia-l] Cross-wiki notifications beta feature now available on all wikis

Roan Kattouw-3
In late 2015 and early 2016, the Collaboration team worked on building a
cross-wiki notification feature: listing notifications from other wikis in
the notification panel. We made this feature available on a small set of
wikis [1] initially, and about six hours ago we made it available on all
wikis as a beta feature.

You can enable cross-wiki notifications by clicking the "Beta" link [2] in
the top right corner (or top left in RTL languages) and enabling the
"Enhanced notifications" setting. The notification panels (accessible
through the bell and speech bubble icons in the top right/left corner) will
now display an additional item telling you which other wikis you have
unread notifications on, and you can click this item to expand it and see
those notifications [3]. For more information, see the documentation on
mediawiki.org [4], with mostly complete translations in 13 languages at the
time of this writing.

Because we don't have cross-wiki preferences, enabling the beta feature on
one wiki doesn't automatically enable it on any other wiki. However, you
only have to enable the beta feature to see cross-wiki notifications on a
wiki, not to get them from that wiki. For example, if you only enable the
beta feature on the French Wikipedia, you will see notifications from the
French Wikisource, the Spanish Wikipedia and the Upper Sorbian Wiktionary
even if you haven't enabled the beta feature on those wikis. In fact, if
you've had an account for a while, you are likely to see some very old
notifications from wikis you haven't visited in years; Magnus Manske
tweeted a screenshot of this yesterday [5].

Please try this out and let us know what you think! There's a talk page on
mediawiki.org [6] where you can leave feedback. If you find a bug, please
report it on Phabricator [7] or on the feedback page.

Thanks a lot to the Collaboration team [8] as well as community liaisons
Nick Wilson (Quiddity) and Benoît Evellin (Trizek) for their work on this
over the past few months.

Ad Huikeshoven
Roan,

Hartelijk dank voor je bericht. De notificaties over de grenzen van wikis
werken, dank je wel. Ik wens je een rustig en fijn weekend toe,

Met vriendelijke groeten,

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Cross-wiki notifications beta feature now available on all wikis

Pete Forsyth-2
I've enjoyed finding some messages I never knew were there, such as a
welcome message from two years ago on Basque Wikipedia, and a substantive
reply I had missed on Wikinews for 4 months. It's refreshing for a new
feature to make me immediately feel more connected to other volunteers.
Well done!

I actived this new beta feature and I find messages on wikis since one
year or more. xD

Is a wonderful feature, good work!

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Cross-wiki notifications beta feature now available on all wikis

Nikola Kalchev
Thank you very much, Catrope!

This is indeed very helpful for people who are mostly active on one wiki,
but want to check meta and commons every now and then, too.

One dream is fulfilled. The, next, to be able to have wikidata items in the
watchlist of my home wiki (=bgwiki) is in line.

Best regards,
Nikola / User:Лорд Бъмбъри

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Cross-wiki notifications beta feature now available on all wikis

Andy Mabbett-2
In reply to this post by Roan Kattouw-3
> Cross-wiki notifications

This is great, thank you.

Two requests:

Please could we have two icons, one for local notifications, another for
those from elsewhere?

And could we have some way to avoid mass notifications when we are
mentioned in a newsletter like The Signpost, This Week in GLAM, or the
Wikidata Weekly Summary, which are posted to many talk pages?

Finally it is here! Now I don't miss conversations that are happening
elsewhere.
I know that many don't like it, but combined with Flow it works like a
charm :)

Thanks

Is this change related to the standard notifications pop-up window no
longer working in Chrome (it just sits waiting to get painted), or was
that an existing bug?

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Cross-wiki notifications beta feature now available on all wikis

Philippe Beaudette-4
This is an example, in my opinion (as is most of the echo feature) an
example of the WMF doing an extremely fine implementation of a feature that
the community has dreamed of for years.  This is really fine.  Well done to
all involved.

Hi Fae,
I've just tested, and the notifications popup window is working for me in
both Chrome and Chromium (and Firefox, my default). If you can still
reproduce this problem, please could you either submit a bug-report to
phabricator, or start a thread at the feedback page,[1] or send them to me
offlist? (With details on your browser/OS versions, any javascript blocking
browser extensions you might use, and if possible what errors you see in
browser console.[2])
Much thanks.
Quiddity / Nick

I've pinged you in the existing discussion about this at
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Topic:T03hw9u0lnii21k4


And could we have some way to avoid mass notifications when we are

I've started a topic with some notes about this, at
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Topic:T06vs34wgdt4u1ch

Thanks for the suggestions!

Sure, report at <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T129942> with some
screenshots and version data.

If anyone else has experienced a similar problem, I suggest they chip
in on that task with their end user perspective.

Thanks,
Fae
