Changing title because this is done in mobile, just not in no-JS

This is a micro-task, and someone asked for advice on IRC. As MatmaRex said, start with https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/How_to_become_a_MediaWiki_hacker and the links in there. After installing Vagrant (see link in there), you can enable the 'echo' role as stated at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki-Vagrant#Using_roles .

I would recommend you start by reading https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/diffusion/ECHO/browse/master/includes/special/SpecialNotificationsMarkRead.php and skimming the class referenced from onSubmit.

When you start working on it, please claim the task.
