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

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...

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
