There is some discussion about whether or not bots should trigger the notification.

As I said in that discussion, I would give my strongest possible support to this feature for reasons I already listed in that discussion.

Page creations in my userpace is something I have to actively look for, I don't know of a way to watchlist them. Edits by other users to my userspace should show up on my watchlist, so it's a bit less concerning.

Strongly support this. I just had a vandal create attack pages directed at me in my Userspace, I was very surprised that I received no notification of this.
