Notification to author gives wrong counts of sent and not sent mentions
Closed, ResolvedPublic


In my PrimeHunter2 account saved the line:
:Pinging [[User:NoSuchUser]], [[User:PrimeHunter]], [[User:PrimeHunter3]]. ~~~~

The account has both "Failed mention" and "Successful mention" enabled at

It produced a notification to the author saying:

3 notifications about mentions you made on the ‪PrimeHunter2‬ talk page: 2 not sent, 1 sent.
Username does not exist: NoSuchUser
You mentioned: PrimeHunter3
You mentioned: PrimeHunter

"2 not sent, 1 sent" should have said "1 not sent, 2 sent". The rest is correct. I own the accounts. PrimeHunter and PrimeHunter3 both received a notification.

The bug was discussed in January at
