Use CSS for Notification subscription deletion

Use CSS for Notification subscription deletion

Short, concise description of the idea
When deleting a subscription from the Notification section, collapse the box and remain on the page rather than requiring a reload.

Full description of the idea
In the Notification center, deleting current subscriptions (by clicking the trashcan beside each one) causes the whole page to reload every time. Many users who have access to subscriptions have many subscriptions, and may want to clean house by deleting more than one at a time. However, each click currently requires the page to reload, making the process slow and tedious.

Instead, deletion should emulate the behavior of comment deletion; it should collapse the box in the page, but not require a reload. This would save time and server resources.

An ordered list of benefits
  • More time saved when deleting subscriptions
  • Reduced server load (deleting 10 subscriptions is now one pageload, instead of 10)
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Requires advanced CSS to be implemented on that section of the new Settings page.
