Description Matthew J. Gies 2006-05-11 17:09:24 UTC
I have the page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsar_Bomba on my watchlist. Yet
edits to the page do not actually appear on my watchlist as of some time this
morning (as in, first thing in the morning it worked and now it doesn't). I
tried removing it from my watchlist and then re-adding it, and it still won't
appear on the watchlist itself, although it does appear on the page to edit my
complete watchlist. How do I get edits to this page to start showing up again?

To investigate I'll need your account name on the wiki to check the 
watchlist database entries.
Comment 2 Naconkantari 2006-05-11 21:14:37 UTC
I have had the same problem.  The page does not appear on the watchlist after it
is moved and there have been no edits to the page since it was moved.

Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2006-05-11 23:07:21 UTC
Nothing looks out of the order to me. The most recent edit 
does appear on my watchlist if I watch it and use the 
default watchlist settings; on the "expand watchlist" 
setting its most recent edit is too old and falls off the 
list.

Can you tell me what you expect to see that you're not 
seeing?

Actually, it's behaving fine now. But when this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Tsar_Bomba&oldid=52667937

was the most recent revision, however, it simply would not show up on my
watchlist whether I selected "all" or only the most recent however many hours.
Maybe it was a bug specific to that particular edit of that article?

No, but it is a bug specific to all null revisions made when
protecting/unprotecting pages and moving them. I've discussed this with Brion
Vibber before. The bug occurs because the watchlist relies upon the recent
changes table, which isn't updated when the null edits are made (because recent
changes receives the log item instead).

There's also an issue with rollback with regards to these edits, which was what
I picked up on in the first place.
http://www.anubite.co.uk/docs/mw-bug-nulledits.php has a little more
information, including possible solutions.
