Description Thunderhead 2007-08-21 15:33:20 UTC
When a bot makes a change to a page on a user's watchlist, it should be shown in Recentchanges bt default, shouldn't it?

For example, if I were to watch "Page1", and a bot makes an edit to it, that change should be shown by default in Special:Recentchanges, with the "b" letter beside it.
Comment 1 Siebrand Mazeland 2009-02-02 12:13:20 UTC
Bot edit are hidden from recent changes by default. For your watchlist this is configurable on the preferences, with a product default to "show". Both special pages serve a difference purpose, and functionality should not be mixed. RecentChanges contains a (non-user configurable) option to show bot edits. It can however be added to a URL as "hidebots=0".

I suggest this issue is closed as WONTFIX, because it introduces potentially confusing behaviour.
