When someone posts on my talk page, I currently get TWO pings. Interesting implementation... that might actually be worth a separate ticket.
And of course it displays the giant orange bar. Anyway, oftentimes my workflow is I go read the message (which marks the ping read). But then I go to my ping drawer and mark it as unread again so I don't forget to work on it. However marking it unread again brings back the orange bar.
- Would be nice if marking a once read ping as unread would not bring back the orange bar.
- Re-visiting the user talk page should not clear all user talk pings. Other ping pages don't work like this, it's unique to user talk.
Improved ability to use pings as a "todo list". Improved differentiation between a new talk page message and an old talk page message.
