Summary: changes in "all" days should be real or be reworded
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: wikimedia-deployment
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Watchlist

Watchlists seem to have a 30-day limit, in both Wikipedia and Wikiquote.
Therefore, what it says on the watchlist page as "[s]how last 1 | 2 | 6 | 12
hours 1 | 3 | 7 days all" should be amended so "days all" is reworded to "| up
to 30 days".

The "all" is misleading. This affects me since I edit a lot on WP and check
that watchlist often but hardly edit at all in any other project, so I don't
want to check their watchlists very often. We see "all" and no edits and we
assume there must not have been any. With a rewording, at least we'll know to
check at least monthly.

Even better would be offering a much longer, or infinite, time frame to see
changes, but rewording just the watchlist page is probably easier to implement.

The topic at the URL given in this bug report will probably be archived soon.
