Description Eric 2006-11-02 17:41:26 UTC
Fisrt, excuse me for my bad english.

This page has been recently (yesterday) semi-protected.
Since that, this page disapeared from my watching list, because the last
modification ( ) is

What does it mean "disappeared"? If the protection edit wasn't shown in the
Watchlist but all the previous edits were, it's normal, and the page didn't
disappear - future edits will be shown in the Watchlist. The protection is not a
regular edit, and therefore is not shown in the Recent Changes and Watchlist.
Comment 2 Eric 2006-11-02 18:38:44 UTC
Yes, I understood that future edits will be shown in the Watchlist. But I
disagree, as you said "The protection is not a regular edit", but it is an edit
operation and it is an IMPORTANT edit operation.

Additionnaly, there were some other edits on the article just before the
protection operation.
( ) -
the same day. These modifications are not shown neither : they have been
"hidden" by the protection
