Edit Notifications

  • Problem: There are some pages where it is important knowing when are edited (ex. Requests to administrators), and just adding them to the watchlist can slow down the response times.
  • Who would benefit: Patrollers, admins, other contributors.
  • Proposed solution: Making users able to create a list of pages that will send them a notification when edited.

  • I think it wouldn't be hard to add an option for watchlists to notify, but that would quickly overwhelm the notification system... --Izno (talk) 05:00, 18 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It could be arranged in a two-tier system, with normal addition to watchlist working as currently and some specific pages in that list (to be selected by user) also appear as notification.--FAR (talk) 12:12, 28 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Refined options/multiple watchlists, quota system, daily summary and other mechanisms may reduce the consumption.--YFdyh000 (talk) 23:10, 8 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
