Crosswatch

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

crosswatch was a cross-wiki watchlist tool for Wikimedia projects. The goal of this project was to build a "better" watchlist, which includes a cross-wiki watchlist, cross-wiki notifications, dynamic filtering of the watchlist (project, namespace, searching etc.) and inline diffs (e.g. per default for all talk pages).

It stopped working some time between 2018 and 2020.

Known Pitfalls[edit]

  • Currently crosswatch retrieves the watchlist only for projects in which you have made at least one edit. This is done to avoid unnecessary queries to all Wikimedia projects.
