Adjust cross-wiki bundle when it is the only unread item
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

When there are no local notifications, the cross-wiki bundle text copy needs to be adapted avoiding the word "more".

For example, the copy of a cross-wiki bundle which has messages from two different wikis will be:

  • "Messages from 2 other wikis." if there are no unread messages in the current wiki.
  • "More messages from 2 other wikis." if there are unread messages in the current wiki.

Varying the message is pretty convoluted in the codebase. Any chance we can come up with a message that works for both cases?

Since users already have other read messages in the local wiki, the current message is not completely disorienting.
I think we can keep using the current message and reconsider it if we find it problematic as it is used more widely.

Alright, based on that comment I'm gonna close this as "declined" for now then.
