Bug #: 34522
Summary: User notification when new gadgets are enabled on an
opt-out basis
Product: MediaWiki extensions
Version: any
Platform: All
OS/Version: All
Status: NEW
Severity: normal
Priority: Unprioritized
Component: Gadgets
AssignedTo: wikibugs-l@lists.wikimedia.org
ReportedBy: b@mzmcbride.com
CC: krinklemail@gmail.com
Classification: Unclassified
Mobile Platform: ---


Occasionally someone will enable a new gadget and make it enabled for everyone
with the ability for individual users to opt-out. It would be nice if MediaWiki
somehow notified the user (when visiting Special:Preferences or via e-mail or
in some other way) that a new gadget had been enabled (without the user's
consent) and explain to the user how to disable the gadget, should they wish
to.

Even a "New!" tag next to newly enabled gadgets might be sufficient. I'm not
sure. The current practice of silently changing other users' user preferences
seems fairly unacceptable, though.
