I'm happy to announce that we just released Notifications on Meta-Wiki today.
This version of the tool works in much the same way as on the English Wikipedia, to notify
you about important activity that relates to you on Meta-Wiki. The only differences are
that page reviews are not supported on this site -- and no notifications are sent for
global user right changes -- only for local changes on Meta.
To learn more about this release, visit this special Notifications FAQ here on Meta:
Notifications continue to be used widely on the English Wikipedia, and we now have a
wealth of metrics data on that usage, which you can view on these new metrics dashboards:
Next week, we plan to deploy HTML Email notifications (1), which can be tested now on
, if you feel so inclined. We are also working on an improved
notification structure (2), which will make notifications easier to read. If all goes
well, these changes should be available on Tuesday afternoon.
Many thanks to Benny for all his fine work on these features and deployments!
In coming weeks, we will be deploying Notifications on the French and Polish Wikipedias
and a few other wikis, before making them available to all MediaWiki projects in the fall
of 2013. If you are interested in getting Notifications for your project sooner, please
contact me to discuss.
We will send you a more detailed report after next week's releases.
