Currently the "article-linked" notifications are only sent to the author of the page, but other users may also be interested in knowing about new articles related to a specific page. So, there should be a way for users to create a list of pages for which they will receive notifications when someone adds a link.
This is essentially a specialized form of a watchlist, As has been considered before we should be looking towards a solution that involves allowing users to have an arbitrary number of watchlists (T7875: Group similar pages in watchlist (aka multiple watchlists)) and then link those watchlists to specific tasks such as an echo whitelist and such.
That editable list would allow people to:
- remove some links (articles they have created to help someone, articles with a lot of trafic, etc.)
- add some links to watch if a page has some trafic, or to watch to which articles it has been added ([[John Doe (writer, 1963)]] instead of [[John Doe (writer, 1965)]]).
