Description Frieda 2006-01-04 15:42:47 UTC
Could you please link Unwatchedpages from Specialpages?
I cannot see any reason for hiding this page.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2006-01-04 15:57:08 UTC
Unwatchedpages is available to users with a particular right. It's not listed
for users without that right, and they can't access it. The reason for this, I'd
imagine, is because what's on people's watchlists is their own business. I don't
see a real problem with us having a simple statistic, but certain developers do.

Closing INVALID.

I'm bureocrat, I can join that page but I cannot see it among 'Restricted
special pages'.. 
Comment 3 Gianluigi Gamba 2006-01-04 16:41:50 UTC
Many it:wiki users would appreciate if the page were available to all users, not
only to sysops and higher. This would surely help vandals in finding easier
targets on the short term, but on a mid-long term it's rather likely that all
the pages would be watched by at least one user.

Anyway, if the page were listed among the special pages (for now regardless of
whom can access it), it'd be appreciated. Thanks. 
Comment 4 Rob Church 2006-01-04 16:45:07 UTC
Hmm, it should be listed to those who can see it. I'll check shortly.
