Could not reproduce it in betalabs. Betalabs shows the correct behavior for a new user account:

  • a newly registered user cannot create an article in enwiki betalabs (this limitation matches the behavior in production)
  • the first notification is always welcome notification not the first edit notification.

Possibly affected by T220979.

Hmm. I see a bell icon when I have zero notifications.
Can somebody in growth look at this? It seems we source this number from Echo APIs so I'm guessing we are either accessing incorrectly or there is a bug in Echo... let me know if web can help in any way.

Here's what I see locally on HEAD of Echo, MF, and Minerva:

  1. Create an article (1 notification count, it's the "Welcome" notification) and reload the page (notification count of 2, the second one is thanks for the first edit)

  1. Close the panel without interacting with the notifications:

  1. Tap mark all as read:

  1. Close the panel

  1. Reload the page

This all seems to be correct behavior, AFAICT. @Niedzielski are you still seeing this issue?

Sorry, I can no longer reproduce this issue on master.
