Random proposal◄ Watchlists  The survey has concluded. Here are the results!

View content page or discussion only

  • Problem: Marking a page for the watchlist automatically marks both, content page and discussion. For a limited number of pages, for example the village pump, this could mean a considerable number of changes popping up on the watchlist, and a considerable number of emails received, many of them with toxic or less interesting content. Other situations may exist, where someone wants to follow the discussion only.
  • Who would benefit: Anybody who is interested in watching a content page, but wants to avoid notification of the discussion (or the other way round).
  • Proposed solution: A button or another way to switch off the mark for an individual discussion page, while leaving it intact on the content page (or the other way round).
