Ability to filter Watchlist in Wikidata via language

  • Problem: I have many items on my watchlist in Wikidata and I'm only able to evaluate the quality of edits of labels/descriptions/interwikilinks in German and English. Yet whenever there are changes in another language on the items I watch they show up and clutter my watchlist.
  • Who would benefit: All Wikidata editors who use the watchlist.
  • Proposed solution: Allow users to filter out changes in the watchlist that aren't in the languages in their babel box.

  • wikidata:User:Yair rand/DiffLists.js can do this to some extent if you include that script in your wikidata common.js (code: mw.loader.load( '//', 'text/javascript' ); // [[User:Yair rand/DiffLists.js]]). —MisterSynergy (talk) 13:30, 3 November 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I support this request. The main issue is with added descriptions/aliases of other languages which I don't speak (Side benefit for this request: filtering out recent changes entries => less purges/reparsing?). eranroz (talk) 18:16, 10 November 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
