1. When there are several messages from the same topic, they are shown as one message (group) (when you click on which a drop-down list with all messages appears), they are combined into one logical flow or as a node in a mindmap. Visually merged into a coherent dialogue. It can be a dumb button "unfold me" or a slightly smart button somehow useful itself summarizing its content into itself.
Ah, now [I think] I know what you are referring to (see this screenshot)! Assuming I am understanding what you are describing above accurately, I think we have implemented the "merging" functionality you are referring to in phab:T275949.
Here's how it works right now:
- When you have notifications for multiple comments from the same "topic," you will see them merged/grouped into one item within Echo that you can expand.
- That "one item" will show you: i) the number of comments you are being notified about, ii) the title of the topic in which they were posted and, iii) the username of the person who posted the most recent comment.
- You can open the "one item" to see all of the notifications contained within it by clicking the "expand" icon. You can see what the icon looks like by visiting this page and searching for the word "expand".
Please let me know if anything above prompts new questions and/or does not match up with what you would expect.
2. When the line is at its full length, when viewed from top to bottom - oh, here is the line, then this is the end, everything is simple. The new Vector has a fixed width and a lot of white space on the left and right (1920x1080). I look from top to bottom - there is no line in the right half of the screen, on the right side these topics are visually united, connect and continue each other, I have to look further along the left side, additionally compare the top topic and the bottom topic and the line between them - this takes a little more time and unnecessary actions.
I see. Thank you for explaining this in more detail. We've adjusted the prototype so that the horizontal line that runs underneath
==H2== sections is not interrupted by the
Unsubscribe link. I think this addresses the issue you were referring to, but if not, please let me know.
3. Perhaps in English the difference in words is more understandable, perhaps the situation is worsened by a less distinguishable translation, as very similar synonyms. Imagine that instead of alerts|notices there is the same word (or there are no words, only icons bell|tray) notifications|notifications, and here it is difficult for many to understand how what comes to the first list differs from the second...
You described this in a wonderfully vivid way. While I think the sorting issue you are describing above is out of scope for this particular project, here is the ticket in Phabricator where this issue is being tracked so we do not lose sight of it: T142981.
We'd value you commenting on that ticket if you think there are important details that are missing.
4. Almost, but here with the requirement/clarification that the user experience should not differ. I expect to see the message in exactly the same place on the screen and start reading it in the same place on the screen as when I click on the messages from the subscribed topics from the right column.
You want to be taken to the precise location on the page where the content you are being notified about exists, regardless of what kind of content it is...understood.
Here is a ticket where we can track the work involved with implemented this: phab:T282029.
5. Sometimes users ask in the wiki forum / in discussions why the ping of another participant did not work, why some tag was not set for editing - except for curiosity, this is the need to send them to read somewhere via a link or to provide a qualified answer.
Are you able to share what "did not work" means in this context?
Are the people you referring to talking about pinging someone and that person not responding? Are they talking about pinging someone and doubting whether the person they are pinging was actually notified? Something else?
