Mute: Add links to the Tools menu on user pages to mute/unmute user
Open, NormalPublic2 Story Points

Description

Currently, to configure the mute lists, users must go to Special:Preferences and add the username manually to both the lists. A more streamlined user experience would be to use the Special:Mute page (from T218265: Mute: Add links to disable email and mute specific user to emails sent via Special:EmailUser).


Acceptance criteria

  • In the Tools menu in the left rail (on LTR language wikis), add a new link: Mute preferences
  • This link should only appear for logged-in users.
  • Clicking on the link should take the user to Special:Mute with both of the mute checkboxes pre-checked:
    • After successfully saving the form, the checkboxes and save button go away and a confirmation message displays: User:ABC has been muted. See all muted users in Special:Preferences. - the link goes to Special:Preferences on the wiki they are on.

Before doing this, I think we should merge the list, that way we can just say "Mute this user" and "Unmute this user" which is similar to other systems.

I agree that this would make the end-user experience a lot more straightforward.
