Community Wishlist Survey 2023/Notifications, Watchlists and Talk Pages/On-wiki notifications for the Watchlist or subscriptions per page

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

On-wiki notifications for the Watchlist or subscriptions per page

  • Problem: I forget that watchlist exists, I think notifications informing about changes in pages would be useful. I get e-mail notifications but I don't see any reasons not to move them to Wikimedia.
  • Proposed solution: Adding option to enable notifications for the watchlist or a separate "subscribe" button for each page in Wikimedia projects.
  • Who would benefit: All people viewing the Recent Changes, pending change reviewers, members of WikiProjects and sysops. The function would make tracking WikiProject discussion pages or articles, that are often edited or vandalized, easier.
  • More comments: This should be optional and configurable for individual projects. That is, in the same way that watchlist email notifications are optional. For example, I might only want enable notifications for meta.wikimedia, but not for en.wikipedia.
  • Phabricator tickets: T309855 (watchlist notifications), T263821 (new topic notifications), T284795 (subscribe to all topics on a page)
