(top) in watchlists
Open, LowPublic


Author: catlow

In lists of user contributions, I can see whether an edit is the most recent for the page (for example, in en.wikipedia the text '(top)' appears). Could this also be made to happen in watchlists?

All the edits on the watchlist are the top, so there would be no point.

I guess I mean the extended watchlist, which also includes edits which are not on top.

Well, the one on top would appear *at* the top. :)

This only needs to be listed separately in Contribs because you don't see the edits by other people.

You really don't like my ideas, do you;) No, I know that the one on top will appear highest on the watchlist, but when your watchlist contains a lot of different pages with many edits, it isn't immediately apparent whether the one you're looking at is the highest edit for that page (you would have to waste time scrolling up and visually scanning the higher portion of the list - I don't know about others, but I always read my watchlist from bottom up). And I imagine this would be a pretty easy thing to fix - since we already have (top) appearing on contribs, I guess you would just have to copy the relevant portion of code over to the routine that generates the watchlist.
