Email digest header tweaks
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

We love Vibha's new design for the email digest:

But the category headers are so long that they are hard to parse and add unnecessary clutter. Consider these tweaks:
• remove the word 'notifications' after the category headers
• use the same short labels for each category as in preferences (e.g. 'page link', 'edit revert')
• require developers to specify a plural for those labels as well (e.g. 'page links', 'edit reverts')

Current requirements for this feature are outlined here, and will be updated based on our discussions:

Event Timeline

bzimport raised the priority of this task from to Normal.Nov 22 2014, 1:27 AM
bzimport added a project: Notifications.
bzimport set Reference to bz47095.

If we include bundled notifications in the digests, the counts in the headers aren't going to be accurate anyway. In that case, we should just have headers like: "Page Reviews", "Talk Page Posts", etc.

I don't think there is a nice and clean way to reuse these messages, the only way I can think of is to change all 'echo-category-title-*' messages, for example, 'Page link' to 'Page {{PLURAL:$1|link|links}}, that will require passing the number 1 for singular case
