Description homsar987 2006-03-03 07:06:51 UTC
I have very few articles on my watchlist because I want to know when they're
edited. Most of them are on there because I posted something on their talk pages
and I want to know when somebody responds to it. I'd like the ability to unwatch
JUST the article and NOT the talk page and vice-versa. (I know there's people
whose watchlists are just the opposite of mine.)

Articles and their talk pages are deliberately treated as a unit.

Reopening and setting at lowest priority. Fix in year 2012. No big deal.
Don't just say
"Articles and their talk pages are deliberately treated as a unit."
It's just like saying
"Husband and wife are deliberately treated as a unit."

Just allow the possiblity of diffent thinking about the matter one day.
No rush. But don't just slam the door using family planning logic of the 60's or whatever.
