           Summary: Flow floods watchlist
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: Flow
    Classification: Unclassified
   Mobile Platform: ---

For the following assume you're using the un-expanded watchlist without
grouping enabled (therefore the default preferences a new user will see):

The current behavior of Flow is to create an entry in ones watchlist for each
and every action. That means every comment (even if it's on the same topic)
creates a new entry. Therefore the watchlist is quickly flooded by dozens of
Flow comments making it very unclear and nearly impossible to quickly find
other pages that have changed in the same period of time.

Flow should therefore (as is the default for normal Wiki pages) only list the
newest edit to each watched board. The current behaviour can be kept but should
only be enabled when choosing the expanded watchlist from user preferences.
