"tog-watchdefault" disabled itself
Open, LowPublic

Description

At least two users reported on Portuguese Wikipedia[1] that the preference "Add pages I edit to my watchlist" ("tog-watchdefault") disabled itself in the last few days.

I don't know if this was a one time issue, related to some recent changes to the watchlist options [2], or if it is indeed a bug which should be fixed.

I'm guessing a one time issue, but adding Sam to confirm.

Most likely. Not 100% sure though

In that case, is it something that could be prevented?
(so people can avoid the same behavior on other wikis)
