Change [[MediaWiki:Watchlist-details]] as discussed
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

in https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=Thread:Support/About_MediaWiki:Watchlist-details

You can hardly expect newcomers to understand/ to know that a page and its talkpage are counted as just one but that talkpages are actually counted when watched, so I suggest changing:

$1 pages on your watchlist, not counting talk pages.

to

$1 pages on your watchlist, not separately counting talk pages.


And no, Echo, Flow, ... are not an excuse as they are MediaWiki extensions.

Thanks for choosing the most concise of your proposals. :)
I'm not sure this actually makes it much clearer but it may not harm either in practise, let's wait a bit for more comments.

Adding many blockers of bug 38638 to the list of "easy" bugs, to mark them as candidates for [[mw:Google Code-in]] tasks (gci2013). If you think this bug is not suitable, remove the keyword.
