Editing a page with API removes page from watchlist
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I have [[n:wikinews:Sandbox]] on my watchlist. I edit it with the api, using the following (POST) request:

action edit
format xml
summary testing watchlist+api
text {{sandbox}} Testing
title Wikinews:Sandbox
token edit token....

The response i recieve is the normal response:

<?xml version="1.0"?><api><edit result="Success" pageid="4500" title="Wikinews:Sandbox" oldrevid="887159" newrevid="887160" newtimestamp="2009-09-26T00:41:29Z" /></api>

And the page is edited as it should be. However the page is suddenly no longer on my watchlist.

Expected behavoir: Editing with the api should not affect whether the page is on or off my watchlist.

Note: if it matters, I do not have it set in my preferences to automatically add pages i edit to my watchlist, however the page was on my watchlist before hand so it should stay on.
