Watchlist edit - "check all" checkbox

  • Problem: When removing pages from Special:EditWatchlist you must manually check every page, even if you want to remove all (or almost).
  • Proposed solution: Add checkbox "Check all" above list of pages for every space.
  • Who would benefit: Everyone.

  • Note, it is possible to shift click the checkboxes, to select an entire range. —TheDJ (talkcontribs) 13:12, 6 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • It seems to be a toggle action. Clicking a checked box – either with or without Shift pressed – will reverse the state of the box or boxes. — Smyru (talk) 10:35, 9 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • It is also possible to highlight and delete everything by editing the raw watchlist, but this is perhaps a little unintuitive. Snowmanonahoe (talk) 19:25, 18 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
