Description Duncan Harris 2005-06-28 14:19:59 UTC
When one uploads an image, one ought to have the opportunity to add the image 
description page to one's watchlist.  This might not be to everyone's liking, so you 
will probably need to use a checkbox on the upload page.
Comment 1 Chris McKenna 2005-08-10 20:06:47 UTC
I would like this, particularly for the commons.
Imho it would work best as a checkbox on the upload page with an option to
choose the default in your preferences, as is the case for article edits. 
Comment 2 Omegatron 2005-08-28 23:08:14 UTC
Definitely.  There should be an option near "Add pages you edit to your
watchlist".  (And both should be turned on by default...)
Comment 3 Chris McKenna 2005-09-18 17:07:50 UTC
I've upped the priority on this to "High" in the light of the new
speedy-deletion criteria that Jimbo added for images with unknown
source/copyright status. If these images are on people's watchlists by default
then there is a much higher chance of spotting when a tag has been put on it.
I know it is good practice to inform the uploaded when adding these tags, but
inevitably this wont happen with everyone and, imho, a belt-and-braces approach
would be beneficial.

Taking bug.
Comment 5 Brion Vibber 2005-09-19 06:23:25 UTC
I've committed the fix for this itself to REL1_5 and HEAD, however I should note 
it's currently of limited use. Uploads don't add an entry to the recentchanges 
table for the *image*, just on the upload log, so you won't see anything in the 
watchlist on a re-upload or image revert.

What you *will* see is someone adding "{{deleteme}}" to the page or commenting on 
its talk page.

What you *won't* see is someone replacing it with goatse.

Resolving this as fixed; it may be worthwhile adding the other as a separate bug to 
keep in mind.
Comment 6 Duncan Harris 2005-09-19 15:10:47 UTC
I've added relating to setting 
this on or off in user preferences.
