To Top] The wording is not correct in New message banner
[Device] Flame [Environment] Gaia 3584b2723412ed3299c6761f465885d80651c87e Gecko https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/e7806c9c83f3 BuildID 20140820160201 Version 34.0a1 ro.build.version.incremental=94 ro.build.date=Tue May 20 09:29:20 CST 2014 [STR] 1. Open email app 2. Set up a valid email account and set auto sync 5 mins 3. Send a mail to this account 4. Wait for 5 mins 5. The new message banner is appear. [Actual result] The wording is "# New Emails" [Expected result] The wording is "# New Messages"
Asking Stephany for confirmation on the casing and wording confirmation for this one too: When showing the "3 New Messages" in the top bar overlay when new messages are added to the message list, it should be title cased as shown, and "Messages" should be used instead of "Emails" since the other mentions in the message list use the "Messages" terminology (like at the bottom of the message list where it has "Load More Messages" and "Loading Messages"). The related UX spec for this feature is in bug 989810 comment 2.
Flagging Rob to confirm the strings for FL, but James I believe you are correct. Sorry - we really need to be more diligent about strings and copy and specs. Fortunately we have an updated copy style guide in progress that will be ready SOON for our team.

Juwei is the owner but, for the purposes of FL, I'll chime in and say that I agree with James - we want the wording to be consistent. NI'ing Juwei just in case.

James, please feel free to land this in the meantime - no need to hold up landing on copy like this when Rob and I agree. Thanks! Sorry about the hot potato game here a bit.
Thanks all. I think it is also worth sorting how we treat the strings in the system notifications, the ones that show up outside of the app. Those strings still say "Emails" since "Messages" could be potentially confusing, what type, SMS, some other chat app? But I am open for getting different longer term guidance. For this ticket, which I want to land today, I will use "Messages" for this in-app header overlay and leave the notifications as they have been all this time with mentioning "Emails".
Hi James, you're right. It should use "# New Messages" as ux spec described in bug 989810 and align to the middle of the line. Thank you!
