Add comments field to watchlist items
Open, MediumPublicFeature


Author: robchur

Users on En. are requesting the ability to add comments to watchlisted items,
for instance, to remind them about why they watched the item in the first place,
or to "tag" certain items, e.g. "featured", "vandal magnet", etc.

While I realise this might need an interface overhaul, I've also - literally
this second - thought of a fairly flexible way of doing it.

Anyway, here's the feature request, just so's I can assign it to myself when the
time comes. ;-)

Version: unspecified
Severity: enhancement

Excuse the spam, but I would find this is *the* most useful new feature. It's a huge timesaver.

Rob - would you be willing to share your approach for the interface?

Changing component to "Watchlist"

This has been open for 4 years now and such a feature is still really needed (admins often have thousands of pages watchlisted and they cannot remember why for every single of them). Is there any progress on this?
