Should notification categories be plural (Mentions) or singular (Mention)?

Description

It's currently inconsistent (Thanks, Translations), but mostly singular.

I think plural (Thanks, Translations, Mentions, Page links, etc.) would be better.

Patches are welcome, but this is not likely to be something that Growth-Team works on in the short-to-medium term.

My two cents, if the wording for "Notify me about these events" changes to "Notify me about these types of events", then singular seems to make more sense, and most labels are already using singular. Maybe @MMiller_WMF has an opinion on it.
