Please let us know when the names for these pages have been decided (even if they haven't been created or finished yet), so we can put their URLs in the code. Currently, the code links to [[mw:Extension:Echo]] and [[mw:Extension talk:Echo]] as placeholders.

Roan, Pau and I discussed what features will or wont' be in the Notifications beta release. Here is the breakdown we came up with: '

  • beta in the current release: cross wiki notifications
  • projected to add to beta in future releases: mark as unread, expanding bundling (other than cross-wiki), the new sorting scheme and any associated feature changes (e.g., eliminating auto-mark-as-read on open), the new Notifications page (possibly), and volume control.
  • Never in beta: flowusertalk
