            Bug ID: 61919
           Summary: Allow marking echo events as 'archived'
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal

When there is a new echo event it is confusing, that the list show also up to
four old events. It should be possible to mark events as 'archived'. A archived
event will not be shown by default on the pop-up or on the special page, but it
is possible to see it on the special page by a filter.

With this feature it easier to read a user talk message now and answer it
later.
A event is marked as read when clicked on the diff link, but it does not mean,
that you have answer/working on it. At the moment you have to keep in mind that
the event needs a answer and when you have time than you can go to the list of
events and search the relevant event.
When all done events can be archived, than it is easier to find events which
are not done. This can be done as opt-in and than the event count shows a grey
number of unarchived events in the list. New unread events still will give a
red count.

You can compare this with a email inbox, where new unread messages are bold and
get unbold when read the first time. When worked on it you can move it to a
folder to archive it or delete the mail. Than you can use the inbox as a (big)
todo list. (I know that other people never moving mails out of the inbox, but
that is the current situation in echo and you can leave that unchanged).
