Description Helder 2009-01-20 16:00:09 UTC
Currently, every time a page someone is watching is edited, he receive an e-mail notification about that. So, if by any chance lots of pages in his watch list is edited in a day, his inbox will be crowded of e-mails!

I would like to have a way of set how often I want to receive the notifications. Good options would be:
* "new  occurrences"
* "once a week"
* "once a day" (or even "once # days")

What do you think about it?

I on the other hand resent the
"There will be no other notifications in case of further changes unless you visit this page."

I want a way, for certain pages, or just all pages, to be able to say "go ahead, send me mail every time it changes. I'm at the QZW Convention Center, using a MXQ device, and won't be able to login an browse the page anyway, but I sure want to know every change via email."

Hmm, I see there is an extension, but maybe not too available to download:
$ w3m -dump -cols 222 | grep week
