2017 Community Wishlist Survey/Watchlists/Show number of unseen changes in the page title
The survey has concluded. Here are the results!
- Problem: I often have the watchlist open in a tab, but to see if there are any new changes there I have to switch to that tab.
- Who would benefit: All logged-in users.
- Proposed solution: Many browser based e-mail services add (n) before the title of the page, in our case "Watchlist - Wikipedia", where n is the number of unread emails. Add a similar thing to the watchlist, and some way to dismiss/reset it. On Swedish Wikipedia we had this as a user script, but it stopped working with the new watchlists recently (and even if it is fixed, this would still probably be beneficial for far more users).

- Question: are we talking about live updating refreshing it (like Twitter feed)? Because, otherwise I don't see the point. --SuperJew (talk) 16:25, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

- Support But only when live updates are turned on—if one wants to get notified about edits immediately, they can turn it on. I think most users would be annoyed by it. Tacsipacsi (talk) 18:06, 8 December 2017 (UTC)
