Only show latest edits in mobile web watchlist

  • Problem: In mobile web view (e.g. ) all edits to a watched page are displayed. It does not follow user settings on show latest edit of each page only (default behaviour for desktop) vs show every edit (only available behaviour in mobile web). This makes the mobile watchlist unusable for anyone with any high-volume page on their watchlist.
  • Who would benefit: People watching a variety of pages.
  • Proposed solution: Make the default behaviour of the mobile watchlist the same as the desktop watchlist: show only the latest edit to each watched page.

No way as default behaviour. I can support this only as opt-in/opt-out preference/choice (some switch button?). --Vachovec1 (talk) 11:34, 11 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • The watchlist should follow user preferences both on desktop and on mobile.--Nizil Shah (talk) 12:43, 14 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
