Allow people to watch/unwatch pages for link notification purposes
Closed, DuplicatePublic


At the moment, people can receive a notification for links made to pages they have created only.

Have a way to edit that list would allow people to:

  • remove some links (articles they have created to help someone, articles with a lot of trafic, etc.)
  • add some links to watch if a page has some trafic, or to watch to which articles it has been added ([[John Doe (writer, 1963)]] instead of [[John Doe (writer, 1965)]]).

And possibly more cases.

The most raised example for that list was the raw watchlist [[Special:EditWatchlist/raw]]

This is probably a semi-duplicate of one or more tasks around volume control, and maybe even an older task from 2013ish? @Quiddity ?
