Alert preferences: media and albums inconsistency?

    At account/alert-preferences I see:

    "Rates your media" and "Comments on your media" will also alert you if someone rates your album or comments your album, respectively? If so, then I believe that "Likes your media" and "Likes your album" should be merged into a single "Likes your media" for consistency.

    So we could have something like this:

    Consistency with what?

    The only thing slightly wrong is that there is no mention of the term "album" in the rate or comment preferences; most likely because rating albums and commenting on albums was functionality which was added later than the rest.

    So there's a slight change here:

    Still having "Likes your media" and "Likes your album" instead of:

    Likes your media or album
    Someone likes your media or your album


    Imho they both could be merged into a single checkbox to make things more easy to the end user and somehow more consistent with the "Rates..." and "Comments..." checkboxes.

    In my opinion, it's fine as it is.

    But the biggest factor is that it would require a number of significant changes that just really aren't feasible at this stage.

    Bear in mind people may have already set their preferences for either one, meaning we have to make assumptions about which preference takes precedence, we have to clear data that has already been set for either one to prevent leaving orphaned data.

    It's going to stay as it is, for now at least.
