Community Wishlist Survey 2021/Watchlists/Watchlist Web notifications

Watchlist Web notifications

  • Problem: Users that have too many pages in watchlist miss some very important pages edited that they sat in their watchlist.
  • Who would benefit: Users that have many pages in watchlist
  • Proposed solution: A tool to watch a page that sends Web notification when page edited.
  • More comments: I'd use this tool for the present page !
  • Phabricator tickets:

This is already available as an Atom (RSS) feed. On the page you wish to monitor (e.g. w:fr:Utilisateur:Golmore) go to its history. In the left hand menu there's a link to the Atom feed. I use Thunderbird for my email which also handles RSS feeds. Other aggregators are available. Hope that helps, Cabayi (talk) 11:31, 19 November 2020 (UTC)

  Comment: I have a similar proposal, which seeks to solve the same problem. Please see Community Wishlist Survey 2021/Watchlists#Add a "favorite this page" in the "watch this page" star. Bageense (talk) 17:05, 24 November 2020 (UTC)

Note that Community Wishlist Survey 2021/Watchlists#Add a "favorite this page" in the "watch this page" star has been merged with Community Wishlist Survey 2021/Reading/"Favourite" or "Followed pages" button - IFried (WMF) (talk) 19:23, 3 December 2020 (UTC)
