Remove web display preference for notifications
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

We would like to remove the 'Web display' preference that lets users choose whether or not they want to see the notifications badge next to their name in their user menu, using a check box.

The feature requirements for this preference are posted here:
http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Echo_(Notifications)/Feature_requirements#Web_Display

Based on team discussions about this feature, we no longer plan to include in the first release of Notifications, because it would set a bad precedent of having to support old versions of the software.

However, if we get strong requests from the community for this feature, we may consider making it available temporarily, while we improve the tool -- with the understanding that this would only be for a few months and old notifications will be retired and replaced with the new tool.

For now, let's remove this preference option.


Version: unspecified
Severity: normal
