~sircmpwn/todo.sr.ht/#98: Add subscribers list page (for tickets, boards)

Related to #82, but not necessarily deriving from it.

Page instead of inlining the list, because for heated tickets/boards such list can be long and even inlined would take too much space.

+1 to a list but I'm not a fan of this idea:

In the list I would suggest differentiating those that subscribed on their own from those that subscribed automatically via commenting (which makes sense only for tickets).

~przemoc 5 months ago

I think that in most kind of logging automatic actions should be discernible from manual ones, and such information should be propagated further, as long as it makes sense, and I believe it does here. It's good to be able to tell that I'm participating in this thread, because I subscribed to it vs simply I commented on it.

~sircmpwn 5 months ago

I mean, if you commented, that's why you were subscribed.

~przemoc 5 months ago

But I could also comment later, i.e. subscribe first, watch discussions and start taking part in it at some time.

~sircmpwn 5 months ago

I guess. I just don't understand why you actually care how you subscribed.

~sircmpwn 5 months ago

Side note, I think the list should be inlined up to a limit, then the remainder put in a separate page.

~przemoc 5 months ago

I care how I subscribed, because it kind of shows involvement level from the beginning.

Manual subscription is more like I'm genuinely interested in it. Automatic subscription may feel like I left a comment about something, but it doesn't necessarily mean I'm really interested in it, yet these mails don't bother me yet, so I haven't unsubscribed yet.

~przemoc 5 months ago

And regarding side note, it makes sense, possibly 9 nicks or so and ellipsis afterward.

~sircmpwn 5 months ago

Do you mean that you like the internet points? I don't find that rationale compelling.

~przemoc 5 months ago

What internet points? Are we talking about some kind of upvotes/downvotes? I didn't mean it like that.

I think I understand what you may think, though. I meant only to not lose the information about how subscription started for myself. So I'm perfectly fine about this distinction visible only to subscriber herself/himself, e.g. by showing (manually subscribed) or (subscribed because of comment) next to my nick.

~sircmpwn 5 months ago

That sounds a bit better. I'm on board with that.

~grayhatter 5 months ago

I'd like to subscribe to every issue on this board, but you can be sure a care a lot more about the ones I've commented on.

~grayhatter 5 months ago

Got, too punchy, and if someone @grayhatter's me, you can be sure I need to pay attention to those as well.

~sircmpwn 5 months ago

Does that mean you think they should be distinguished somehow?

~grayhatter 5 months ago

github has the right idea, it adds an additonal CC to allow you to filter out some things.

e.g. when I post a comment on the github webui, I get an email as well, so when I'm reading through the email thread, I don't miss anything, but I can also mark those emails as read (as I wrote them).

Personally I'd use your_activity@list.repo.tracker.sr.ht (or what ever the sending domain is) highlighted@... subscribed@... replys@...

Each one for: my comments, someone using @grayhatter, I clicked subscribe button, and I commented on the thread previously; respectively .

see also, https://help.github.com/articles/about-email-notifications/ they have a few other really helpful ones

~sircmpwn 5 months ago

That's a pretty good idea.

Then you should subscribe to the board (which is not supported yet), not to each ticket individually. Just saying.

when I post a comment on the github webui, I get an email as well

Don't know exactly when they introduced it, but it wasn't supported for many years, hated lack of it, and I noticed just months ago it is supported. Just for the record it's in Notification settings in Email notification preferences: Include your own updates.

I never noticed that second CC entry in GitHub mail notifications gives the reason. Useful.

BTW this discussion that happened today is not about subscribers list page per se, but mostly about improving mail notification, so maybe such ticket should be created and comments moved there?
