Description

Enabling Echo for anonymous users is something that eventually should get done.

At the very least a schema change will be needed on the echo_notification table.

There are quite a few calls to if ( $user->isAnon() ) { abort; } which need to be updated.

It would be interesting to investigate expiring notifications for dynamic IP addresses.

Apparently WikiHow is working on this (or already has it done?)...

Apparently WikiHow is working on this (or already has it done?)...

Compare http://www.wikihow.com/Special:Notifications versus https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Notifications (visit both as logged out users).

I uploaded Icfafb4e059baadff8bcda93594835a4ec6b47264 which is a diff of the WikiHow code from current master of Echo. I'll work on cutting down the irrelevant parts.

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.
