Change saved prefs box to generic PostEdit notify
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

I propose to change the saved 'Your preferences have been saved.' green box to generic PostEdit notify. It appears more logical and user-friendly to me. If this method has proven to be, why not implement it here. See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:PostEdit for design details.

We just don't need two different ways to inform users about changes they made on wiki. As I've said: If this method has proven to be, why not implement it here.

PostEdit is (now) part of core
