Echo: Namespace is not indicated for posts to talk pages other than article talk
Closed, DuplicatePublic


Orikrin1998 mentioned me in the talk page of Modèle:Mention on frwiki (

I got a notification for that, saying « Orikrin1998 mentioned you on Mention talk page in "Changement image". »

I think this notification is not clear enough: the page is « Modèle:Mention », not only « Mention » (which is an article that exists)

There’s the same problem with the e-mail I received.

Version: unspecified
Severity: normal

To translate, it's basically saying:

"Orikrin1998 mentioned you on Mention talk page in "Changement image"."

when it should be something like:

"Orikrin1998 mentioned you on the talk page of Template:Mention in "Changement image"."


"Orikrin1998 mentioned you on Template talk:Mention in "Changement image"."

(The actual post was to Template_talk).

Nowhere does the notification tell you (not even by saying "talk page of Foo_Namespace") the actual namespace, which misleads as described.
