Homepage: Watchlist module
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

From a discussion at the hackathon with @Theklan.

The idea is to have a watchlist module on the talk page to introduce the principle of the watchlist.

Reason why:

  • make people aware of the watchlist and how to add articles to it
  • have an easy access to the watchlist
  • give basic information to avoid the complexity of the full watchlist

Solutions:

  • have a simplified watchlist like: "those articles have been changed since you were there the last time", followed by a link to the articles
  • a link to the watchlist
  • a tooltip explaining bfiefly what is a watchlist and a link to the full help page

Because the team is prioritizing "newcomer tasks" (T227728), this additional module would not be a priority until later in the year (if at all).
