Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.
In order to access the Phabricator task corresponding to a Bugzilla report, just remove "static-" from its URL.
You could still run searches in Bugzilla or access your list of votes but bug reports will obviously not be up-to-date in Bugzilla.

Description Derk-Jan Hartman 2010-08-02 13:32:23 UTC
"I think it would be useful if the [[Special:preferences]] Watchlist tab had a direct link to [[Special:Watchlist]] or even [[Special:Watchlist/edit]]. A typical user's response to the preferences/Watchlist tab might be 'yes, but how do I actually edit my watchlist?'"

Suggested by [[User:Csmiller]].

This is a great idea. We are currently logging preference settings and changes sitewide to analyze and audit in order to refactor them into fewer more clearly organized sections and remove options that are not used, as well as making sure that the defaults for new users are best suited for their needs. 

We'll add this to the list of things to evaluate when this work begins.
