Description Brian Mearns 2006-09-13 22:37:16 UTC
RSS feeds for Special:Recentchanges is basically worthless for big wikis like
the pedia, there's just too many damn changes all the time (not that that's a
bad thing). The whole point of the watchlist is to only be notified of changes
to pages you're interested in, so it makes sense to have an RSS feed for user's
watchlists. However, I know there's probably an issue with login, since
watchlist is a per user basis. Is it realistic to have a /username argument on
the watchlist (like the Whatlinkshere page) so that you wouldn't actually have
to login to get the feed?
