For both RC page and Watchlist, we are about to make what is actually a pretty fundamental change: from a page that is unitary to a paginated system. In the past, there was one Watchlist. One RC page. The point here is that with pagination, the meaning of "changes to show' alters.
In a paginated Watchlist or RC page, the only logical meaning for "changes to show" is "Changes to show per page." So let's make the interface say this. In testing, users seem to be having trouble grasping the shift. Making the following small language change in the number of changes selection menu (T162786) will help them.
- Was: Changes to show:
- Proposed: Changes to show per page
The menu as it is now
