Disable Echo ping notifications on a per-page basis
Open, NormalPublic

Description

Similar to T52393, I think, it should be possible to disable Echo pings on a per-page (in addition to a per-revision basis).

What's the use case, here?

Pages like [[WP:AIV]], [[WP:UAA]], where we don't necessarily want people to know they have been reported.

That makes sense, although I suspect that if you're up at AIV you won't be able to do much before your block anyway ;p. Still, worth factoring into our next maintenance sprint (whenever that will be)

I propose that this bug should track also enabling of

I propose that this bug should track also *enabling* of ping notifications on a per-page basis.
We could use two behavior switches:

  • "NOMENTIONS" to disable them on discussion and project namespaces;
  • "MENTIONS" or "ENABLEMENTIONS" to enable them on other namespaces.

the Italian Wikipedia's Help Desk is located in the "Help" namespace, so we can't ping each other: https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Permalink/63172567#bug_su_link_a_pagina_utente.3F

can't ping each other

Probably the better solution for that is enabling pings in all namespaces (bug 55491).

Probably the better solution for that is enabling pings in all namespaces
(bug
55491).

Or enabling pings from the edit summary ( bug 49446 ) might work too...

My use case for this is that my notifications are flooded with new links to very general articles that I once created and which get linked very often (such as an administrative unit being linked from every single new article on its subdivision, of which there may be thousands). I do not want to disable the whole feature ("new links to articles that I have created") because I still want to see new links to those more specific articles that consist the majority of my contributions (but a minority of my new links notifications, at the moment). I thought there might be other users warring this, or who may have disabled this kind of notifications only for the hassle it brings when you are a somewhat aged contributor (or just happen to be the first acting Wikipedian when a new general topic comes to existence).
