WD within WP watchlists: Allow hiding new language versions of articles
Open, Needs TriagePublic


As Wikipedians, we need the ability to see ONLY changes to WikiData elements used within Wikipedia articles within our Wikipedia watchlists.

Amir has made great progress towards this goal here T90436: Improve usage tracking granularity to avoid irrelevant changes showing in the watchlist. with only a few steps left to complete it. One is

  1. Make it optionally whether new language versions of articles appear in the watchlist

Sure. From what I understand I have there agreement @Aklapper

I agreed to work on it but I would like to keep these tickets unassigned to me in order to avoid "licking the cookie". i.e. if someone beats me to do it, I don't want to block them. I might not be able to get to it any time soon.

@Lydia_Pintscher Do you think we can absorb this and T224533: WD within WP watchlists: Allow hiding changes to descriptions used in other languages into Wikidata-Campsite ? Can you take a look? For this one, adding a change tag when injecting RC record should be enough. It's not that hard (the InjectRCRecordsJob uses EntityChange which is pretty agnostic to what type of change it is).

Thanks for filing the ticket. As a next step we need to figure out how to expose this preference from a UX/UI side.
@Charlie_WMDE do you have any input? Or someone else working on the new watchlist?
