Help:Watchlist

From QMRAwiki

Using Watchlist, the user can keep track of a list of pages that may have been altered. A summary of changes made to each of the pages being watched may be found by clicking on "my watchlist". This prevents the user from having to click through all of the pages one at a time.

Getting email notification of changes

In your preferences, you can set QMRAwiki to email you when a page on your watchlist has been edited. It only emails you once until you view the page again while logged in, so you won't be inundated with emails if someone is making a bunch of changes.

Adding to your watchlist

When you are logged in, a "watch" tab appears at the top of every page you are viewing. Clicking it places that page on your watchlist, sends you to a message telling you that you've added a page to your watchlist, and changes the tab to "unwatch" the next time you view that page.
