Notification for mentions on a user talk page should explain that they're on a user talk page, and have a special case for people writing to their own
Closed, DuplicatePublic


Currently the message you get when User:Foo writes on User_talk:Foo is:

Foo mentioned you on the Foo talk page in "Bar".

This should definitely mention that it's a user talk page (and similarly for other namespaces), e.g.:

Foo mentioned you on the Foo user talk page in "Bar".

It should also special-case for when a user is writing on their own talk page, which is quite common:

Foo mentioned you on their user talk page in "Bar".
Foo mentioned you on his user talk page in "Bar".
Foo mentioned you on her user talk page in "Bar".

The "talk page" vs "user talk page" thing is T56433: Notification messages for mentions assume article namespace, do not reflect other namespaces.

@Pginer-WMF, @jmatazzoni: Thoughts on the "his/her/their user talk page" special case? This would be triggered when Alice mentions Bob on User talk:Alice (i.e. her own talk page).
