Community Wishlist Survey 2021/Notifications/Automatically Notify a User when ANY of their subpages are edited

Automatically Notify a User when ANY of their subpages are edited

  • Problem: Any edits made to User subpages, or their associated talk pages, fail to result in an automatic notification (unlike edits to the main User Page and Talk Page. This leaves all subpages not only open to bad faith editing, but also to a failure of the Notification system to alert the User of a genuine attempt to communicate on any of those subpages. After all, each User sub-page still has its own Talk page - it's just that notifications of edits there don't get sent.
  • Who would benefit: All Users who maintain one or more subpages in their userspace.
  • Proposed solution: Ensure an automatic notification is sent to the User whenever another editor changes content on any of their subpages
  • More comments:
  • Phabricator tickets: Send a notification when someone else edits your userpage and Extend edit-user-talk notification to include edits to subpages of a user's talk page

Discussion

I agree notifications are crucial for keeping the community interactive. I also lack notifications for inline comments in all Talk pages (in case no explicit ping is made). Cheater no1 (talk) 10:45, 19 November 2020 (UTC)

Seems reasonable. Dreamy Jazz talk to me | enwiki 00:08, 20 November 2020 (UTC)

  • I think this proposal is more specific than it should be. Really, there should be a way to watch for changes to subpages of any given page (or pages in any category, for that matter), and for any set of watched pages to generate notification. It might be worthwhile to have one's own page "watched" in that manner by default (in a way that can be disabled), but there should be more fine control over monitoring for changes in general. --Yair rand (talk) 07:13, 17 December 2020 (UTC)

  •   Neutral Est ce vraiment dans l'esprit du wiki ? Modifier une page utilisateur d'un autre arrive déjà souvent dans les modifications récentes "suspectes". Et quand on crée une sous page utilisateur, elle est par défaut dans notre liste de suivi comme n'importe quel page qu'on a créé. -- Nemo Discuter 10:48, 13 December 2020 (UTC)

  •   Support Yes! Had an editor blank a subpage used for notes in an investigation with edit summary "Attack page". When asked about it a much later they insisted "I don't remember that - why you bother me?" Casting aspersions and claiming amnesia was not pleasing. A notification would have been helpful, enabling me to point out the ongoing issue/investigation. Shenme (talk) 06:47, 17 December 2020 (UTC)
