Watching pages allows any logged-in user to keep a list of 'watched' pages and to generate a list of recent changes made to those pages (and their associated talk pages).

This feature enables you to keep track of what's happening to pages you have created or are otherwise interested in.

  • To add a page to your watchlist, log in, go to any page you want to watch, and click its "watch" tab.
  • To check your watchlist, when you are logged in, click on "my watchlist" in the upper right of your screen.
  • If any changes have been made to a page on your watchlist, they will be listed here.
  • If you wish to see a list of all the pages currently on your watchlist, click the link that says, "View and edit watchlist" just under the page's title.
