Link from Special:preferences to Special:Watchlist
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

"I think it would be useful if the [[Special:preferences]] Watchlist tab had a direct link to [[Special:Watchlist]] or even [[Special:Watchlist/edit]]. A typical user's response to the preferences/Watchlist tab might be 'yes, but how do I actually edit my watchlist?'"

Suggested by [[User:Csmiller]].

This is a great idea. We are currently logging preference settings and changes sitewide to analyze and audit in order to refactor them into fewer more clearly organized sections and remove options that are not used, as well as making sure that the defaults for new users are best suited for their needs.

We'll add this to the list of things to evaluate when this work begins.
