Sure; I also meant bundling the emails, however. Something in class1 should be delayed for...say, 4 hours, to see if anything else in class1 turns up. If it does, send them all in one email. If it doesn't, send whatever you've got. Something in class2 gets sent instantly.
I guess that by "bundling" you refer to present several notifications of the same type as a single element.I think that aggregating them by type is something really good for certain kind of notifications, but other content-related notifications may benefit from being aggregated by content.Thats especially relevant when several individual events are correlated or can be interpreted as signs of a more global event (which is somewhat related to the concerns raised by Chris).
For example, if a page receives 1k reads, 20 comments and 2 cross-link, it may be useful to present that as a single "Your page on Higgs Boson is becoming popular (1k reads, 20 comments and linked by 2 other pages today)".More than a specific solution I wanted to make sure that different kinds of aggregation critera are considered when the "bundling" discussion happens.Pau--On Thu, Jan 10, 2013 at 11:50 PM, Matthew Flaschen <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:

think it could be interesting for main namespace pages I created,
especially recent ones. If it's mainspace->mainspace (a link *on* an
article *to* an article) and there is a time-based filter ("links to
articles you created within the last 30 days"), I would probably use it.
I'd say it's somewhere in between, since writing something (the link is
