Phab:T50892 - Echo: Ability to link accounts for notifications

JackPotte (talkcontribs)

Would it be possible please, to attach to my notifications those from my bot account?

Actually today I detect my bugs sometimes one month after their first reversions, so they spread behind my back.

What kind of notification do you want to attach to your account? Messages can easily be watched with cross-wiki notifications.

I think the question is : is it possible to merge notifications from several accounts ? (in this case the bot account and the bot operator account but I can think to several other cases were it can be useful).

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

My question is so : do you need to attach all notifications to that account?

(Speaking avec vous in anglais looks chelou to me, les gars :þ)

Quiddity (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@JackPotte It is not currently possible to merge notifications from another separate account. There is an API (Notifications/API) which you might be able to use. Or possibly M:Crosswatch

@VIGNERON What other use cases are you thinking of? A larger number of use cases, would help increase the priority of this feature request, in contrast to the many other feature requests which it has to be balanced against. Thanks. :-)

There is different cases where someone can have multiples accounts. For instance User:Quiddity and User:Quiddity (WMF) ;) There is people with historic pre-SUL problem too (I know User:Pyb / User:~Pyb), people with different account for different thematic or with legitimate sock puppet account.

Not sure that a lot of people in total.

Thanks for your answers. I've just thought that its could concern the parental controls too.
