Thank you Fabrice and the Echo team.
The deployment is a success on French Wikipedia. A (power) user write on the village pump a good summary of the POV of our community about Notifications:
"As I see the enthusiasm about this feature, I think us, old users who usually doesn't accept novelty, have changed our minds for the first time" (the exact translation is quite difficult tl do).
This is great. This is an achievement :-)

We're hoping to release Echo to Wikimedia mobile sites soon, and it'll be extremely useful to have it be available on more than just mobile enwiki.

Yay! This is awesome news.Notifications: the sleeper success of summer 2013. :)
Thank you, Fabrice, Benny Situ and EE team!"Thanks" feature is still being translated so I could not check it properly in my tests. But I was trying to check whether gender variations will apply. If we say "this user has thanked you", no variation would apply. But if we use "thank you", then it does: Obrigado (for male) and Obrigada (for female), being the variation applied for the gender of the user who is thanking (and not the one being thanked).In the translation tool, I didn't find where/how to provide the 2 options.Oona
