@Quiddity is handling Tech News this particular week, so any questions about this issue should go to him. (:

The problem arises, I imagine, when someone wants to thank in one place and doesn't realise it's done in another, if it's not obvious why a few actions are not thankable.
@Niharika The general eswiki respons was "hey, this is cool, we'd like to use it, were not aware it existed".
The general reaction has been "hey, this is cool, we didn't know it existed", so let's keep it for now.

When do you expect this to move from URL parameter to beta feature?

If we think it fits what we want to do well enough, I'd suggest just going ahead. At some level it comes down to personal taste and we're never going to all prefer the same solution.
@MarcoAurelio Sorry for not being clear enough, asking them is a core part of this task. (:

What would be really good examples of extensions that receive:

@Kaartic I wasn't sure how to best tag it, so I created it and have pinged a couple of persons asking them to take a look at it. (:

Another option would be RocketChat but like RiotIM, it currently lacks threading. I'm running RocketChat for non-Wikimedia reasons and am fairly happy with it, but given that that's a server for nine persons on a Raspberry Pi in my kitchen I'm not sure how well that evaluation scales for our purposes.
Making sure we don't reinvent the wheel:
So I assume what we're looking for is a "venue for communication and relationship building", as @CCicalese_WMF wrote in the task description, and one of the important aspects of IRC and Slack is the social function they have in connecting folks to foster community, which both helps people to work together and to keep wanting to come back. I assume this is important in this case too?
@MusikAnimal No, I don't think that's necessary. There was just no point in not including it if we planned to contact them anyway.

@Niharika Leon had planned – and this could have changed, I'm still not fully up to date with everything since coming back from my rather long Christmas vacation – to send out the "I participated" thing. No reason not to link to the results if doing that.
No, still waiting for the last piece.
No. It seems the priority was raised automatically for a couple of tasks when they were moved from Backlog to January. I don't know why.
Talking about triggers, I could see the need for some different ones just on the top of my head:
