Enable by default "Email from other user" notification on all wikis
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

This feature was implemented in T56130: Provide web notifications when user is sent an email via Special:Emailuser
but the configuration was set to "disabled" by default. (E.g. mw:Special:DisplayNotificationsConfiguration)
(I forget why, but I suspect it might have been due to my bad advice/hesitation at the time?)
I suggest enabling the web-notification by default on all wikis.

I suggest we do this in Echo, since it may also be useful to third-party users.

I've scheduled this config patch for the evening SWAT on May 3, by which time hewiki should have been updated to wmf23, which should include the Echo patch.

Checked in betalabs

  • the option 'Email from other user' gets enabled by default for new users
  • 'Restore all default settings (in all sections)' option will enable 'Email from other user' as part of restoring defaults.
