The message Mobile-frontend-talk-back-to-page is confusing outside of the main Talk space
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The message Mobile-frontend-talk-back-to-page - "Return to "$1" page." - makes sense for talk page of pages in the main namespace (such as Wikipedia articles), but it looks weird on user talk pages, such as https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Amire80 .

[Sorry, sent before completing my thought.]

The reason it seems weird to me is that the namespace is not mentioned in the message, so it looks like an page in the main namespace - "Return to "Amire80" page."

It would probably make more sense to say "Return to "User:Amire80" page.", or even better, to make the message match the namespace: "Return to the user page of Amire80."

Id like us to do the latter - let's not resort to prefixes which mean little to the average user.
