Description Rob Church 2005-12-22 13:22:53 UTC
Users on En. are requesting the ability to add comments to watchlisted items,
for instance, to remind them about why they watched the item in the first place,
or to "tag" certain items, e.g. "featured", "vandal magnet", etc. 

While I realise this might need an interface overhaul, I've also - literally
this second - thought of a fairly flexible way of doing it.

Anyway, here's the feature request, just so's I can assign it to myself when the
time comes. ;-)
Comment 1 Chris Wood 2006-02-05 02:37:56 UTC
Excuse the spam, but I would find this is *the* most useful new feature. It's a huge timesaver.
Comment 2 Joshua C. Lerner 2008-08-21 23:35:29 UTC
Rob - would you be willing to share your approach for the interface?
Comment 3 Siebrand Mazeland 2009-02-02 11:42:07 UTC
Changing component to "Watchlist"

Comment 5 SoWhy 2009-08-06 08:55:19 UTC
This has been open for 4 years now and such a feature is still really needed (admins often have thousands of pages watchlisted and they cannot remember why for every single of them). Is there any progress on this?
