Flow: Notifications links for "created a new topic" highlight too much
Open, NormalPublic

Description

Large screenshot

An item in my notifications, links to
https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Flow&topiclist_sortby=newest&fromnotif=1#flow-post-s1zi7dwkmntd06ef
with the text
"Pages with many discussions
Daniele Pugliesi created a new topic on Talk:Flow.
1 day ago"

That link highlights every single post on the page, some of which are 3 weeks old.
I've made reponses to other topics 3 and 6 days ago.

I guess there's a slim possibility that I haven't visited the Board-itself in 3 weeks, and only seen Topic pages?

This isn't related to when you last visited the board, at least i don't think so. The specified post in the hash (#flow-post-s1zi7dwkmntd06ef) is a valid revision from https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Topic:S1zi08uao74rbo7l. That url essentially says to highlight all posts newer that the one there which is several months older. Since the specified post for highlighting is not on screen it highlights everything.

I'm not sure how the notification got generated though, is this notification still in your history?

If I click https://sv.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipediadiskussion:Flow/Sandl%C3%A5da&topiclist_sortby=newest&fromnotif=1#flow-post-smiq10hiasurgop8 which I got as an Echo-notification that a new topic had been created, it caused a lot of posts get a blue mark, not just the new topic, which should have been done.
