Bug ID: 58956
Summary: Feedback must show up in watchlists
Product: MediaWiki extensions
CC: mmul...@wikimedia.org, mpinc...@wikimedia.org
Depends on: 39326, 44377
Mobile Platform: ---
* As a reader or inexperienced user with something to say about a page, I want
the editors following it to see my feedback in a timely manner (or ever).
* As an editor enabling feedback on a page, I want to be sure that the output
can be acted upon by the appropriate people, rather than just pile up in a
central queue checked only by a handful general-purpose reviewers acting as
* As an editor interested in using feedback to improve pages I follow, I want
to easily and immediately see all feedback to them in a single place so that
all my energies are fruitfully spent acting on it. In an ideal world, I can
spot new feedback in my normal workflow /and/ I can see/moderate said feedback
without exiting my workflow (e.g. I have integrated popups) or with quick walks
out (e.g. snippets + deeplinks to all possible actions).
In other words, users *must* be able to see feedback for their watchlisted
pages, otherwise feedback is completely useless, on any wiki with more than 1
active user (severity: critical in consequence). See
for what people are forced to do nowadays:
I have made a list of links to feedback pages that I want to monitor on my
user page. To check them I just open a whole group in new tabs and close the
tab if there is no new feedback (about 95% of the time) click no action for
most of the rest and occasionally get something worthwhile, which I usually
deal with immediately. It is a work around for something that should reasonably
be automated, but it works. • • • Peter (Southwood) (talk): 13:46, 1 December
The previous solution for this, though not reflecting the "ideal" above, was an
ad hoc special page disabled until bug 39326 is fixed; the IMHO easier
solution, though also not ideal without some improvements, is to use
Special:Log properly so that items show up in Special:Watchlist (bug 44377).
