Special:Watchlist: add direct link to "control your watchlist preferences"
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

On Special:Watchlist how about an Unwatch button on each entry?

That way the user wouldn't need to click "Edit your list of watched pages" and then find the page.
Nor would he have to visit the watched page, and unclick the star.

Nope, he could do it in one click right there on Special:Watchlist.

So maybe on each line:

diff | hist | unwatch ) . . Bla:Bla -- bla bla bla 02:13 . . +37‎ . .

or just

diff | hist | X ) . . Bla:Bla -- bla bla bla 02:13 . . +37‎ . .

with a mouseover saying "Unwatch" when over the X.

This is already possible: Special:Preferences -> Watchlist -> Add direct unwatch/watch markers (×/+)

So maybe Special:Watchlist needs to add an "advertisement" ("New") alerting users to the new preference available?

It's not a 'new' preference actually. It has been around since like 3 years ago T2424.

Hmmm, well Special:Watchlist doesn't have an more links to Special:Preferences than any other page.
Perhaps it needs some.
Perhaps have a direct link to Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-watchlist titled "control your watchlist preferneces".
