After that[edit]

It was nice to see you yesterday at Coop ECTO. I hope there will another meeting where we can wikiparty, I mean do something together to improve Wikipedia.

On a different note, I told someone yesterday that I didn't need to come to Meta site everyday to know if this page has changed, since I received an e-mail everytime it does. To do so, I set this page on my watchlist. After that, I went to my preferences, selected the "User profile", scrolled down, gave my e-mail address and activated "E-mail me when a page on my watchlist is changed". Voilà!

This feature is not enabled on the English and French Wikipedias (too many users, too many pages).
