Community Wishlist Survey 2022/Notifications/New messages popup for new users

New messages popup for new users

  • Problem: Many new editors don't notice the new messages popup in the right hand corner, which leads to them not reading important feedback about their edits.
  • Proposed solution: Have a one-time popup that appears when the user gets the first user talk post so the user knows they received a new message. Also, have some sort of global opt-out available so that stewards etc. don't have to click through this over and over.
  • Who would benefit: New editors, admins

  • May need different options for desktop and mobile, for mobile a related task is phab:T240976. — xaosflux Talk 15:24, 14 January 2022 (UTC)
  • This could be an entry point for opting-in to desktop push notifications. However, I'd prefer having the gold bar of doom for everyone, not just new users and not just on Vector. See also Community Wishlist Survey 2022/Mobile and apps/Better warning display for mobile users. Could this pop-up co-exist with the gold bar (or its equivalent)?

  • I'm not sure how you can miss a long bright yellow bar saying "You have new messages" without actively ignoring it, so this proposal is of doubtful effectivity for me. Mobile has obviously very different problems. ~~~~

  •   Support I work with a lot of new editors. Messages are often overlooked, not for lack of interest, but just because there's a lot to keep track of when getting started. This would help orient new community members. Wskent (talk) 19:20, 28 January 2022 (UTC)
