At the moment, Notifications are deployed on wikis but they are not under active development. As of January 2021, there is no plan to add more features to Notifications. However, suggestions for future improvements are welcomed on the talk page.
在通知系统之前，MediaWiki软件提供的通知只有通过电子邮件通知对您监视页面的更改，以及通过橙色栏通知对您用户讨论页的更改。 The watchlist is quite helpful, but its format is limited. It works well for changes related to pages, but not so well for changes related to users. At the same time, there's no granularity: if a page is watchlisted, you are informed about the next change that happens to it. If a page is not watchlisted, you receive none. Watchlists are useful, and they work well for the job they were designed for, but they don't encompass the whole scope of on-wiki activity. Notification's features, in conjunction with watchlists, can provide a better user experience. Users are able to learn about more events, more easily, and have greater control over what types of information they receive.
The different types of notifications you can receive are detailed on a separate page.
When someone takes an action that affects you on a Wikimedia site, colored badges will appear next to your user name, in the top right corner of any page of that site (top left if your wiki is using a right-to-left language). These notifications include cross-wiki notifications. When there are no notifications, these badges are grey.
The first badge (red, "alerts") contains most important notification types: new messages on your talk page, mentions, etc. The second badge (blue, "notices") contains less important notifications: pages links, message on other talk pages, etc.
These badges will show the number of new notifications you've received. Clicking on the badges will display a fly-out listing the most recent notifications (see screenshot) and set the badge color to grey again. The number will stay different from zero until you mark-as-read all your notifications for this badge (especially for messages).
You can click on the notification of your choice to find out more about it (see description below). To see all notifications received, you can click on "所有通知" to go to the notifications archive.
Here are the most common notifications you can receive. They are all designed with the same pattern:
The whole notifications is a link, usually to a diff that is related to the action you are notified about.
要寻找所有最近的通知，点击通知中心中的“所有通知”再到特殊通知页。 在那个页面，所有通知都会分组（提醒和消息），并按日期显示。 最新的通知排在存档页的第一个。 在维基媒体wiki网站上，该页面也会重新分组跨wiki通知。
Cross-wiki notifications are displayed on both panels, and regroup notifications from other Wikimedia Foundation hosted wikis. By this way, you can receive notifications about Commons when you are on Wikisource. 了解更多有关跨wiki通知。
您可以在通知设置中控制收到何种消息（和频率）。 要查看您的设置，点击通知中心中的“参数设置”（显示在页面上方）或在“所有通知”存档页中。 （您也可以在任何页面点击右上方的“参数设置”，然后再选择“通知”标签。）
If you opt-out of any type of notifications, then these notifications generated while you were opted-out are not generated for you and not stored in databases. Opt-in will not display them afterwards. The only notifications that may be displayed are the one that existed before the opt-out.
要打开或关闭任意通知种类，简单地在网页上或邮件中选择（或反选）大部分种类的复选框。 You can enable (or disable) notifications on the web or by email for most categories. (Some notifications cannot be disabled, such as changes to your user rights or new talk page messages: these notifications are too important to be dismissed.) You can also control how often to receive email notifications, from single emails for each event to daily or weekly digests. When you're done, be sure to click the "保存" button at the bottom of the page to update your preferences.
You will still receive notifications if a muted user writes or participates on your user talk page (no matter if the page uses Flow or unstructured wikitext), or reviews a page you have created. Watchlist behavior and emails are not affected by the mute list.
The muted user will still receive a successful mention notification, if they've enabled that preference. A user's mute list is private from all other users on the wiki, including administrators or any other functionary.
Muting pages is possible for "page linked" notifications.
You can mute "page linked" notifications for a page by typing the page name into the box at the bottom of the notifications preferences.
When you start typing the page titles will autocomplete.
There is a site-wide list of accounts that cannot trigger notifications at MediaWiki:Echo-blacklist, which can be overridden by users at Special:MyPage/Echo-whitelist. (This feature and its configuration pages will be renamed, see 任务T255557)
如果您发现了一个bug，欢迎在Phabricator汇报。 However, we know that Phabricator isn't exactly the easiest system to use; you can also drop the report (in any language) on the project talkpage, with a screenshot and information on your browser and operating system :).
