An example Special:EditWatchlist list

The Watchlist is a way to keep up-to-date on pages you care about on Fandom.

Step-by-step

The location of the "Watch" button

You can "Watch" a page by clicking "Watch" on the toolbar at the bottom of the page. If the toolbar is hidden, pressing the spanner icon in the bottom right corner will show it. Similarly, you can stop watching a page by clicking the "Unwatch" link that should appear in the same location as the "Watch" link on pages that are already in your watchlist.

Some actions, like moving, editing, or deleting a page or file, may prompt you to begin watching a page automatically. You can change your preferences for automatically watching pages (with other advanced options related to your watchlist) in your user preferences.

Example email preferences

Once you're watching a page, you will receive email notifications about changes to the page based on your email preferences. You will not receive notifications for wikis you have been blocked on.

You can view your watchlist or remove pages from it at Special:EditWatchlist, or see a feed of changes to the articles you are watching at Special:Watchlist.

Other ways to watch a page

There are three other ways to watch a page.

  • At the end of the URL of any content article in any wiki, add ?action=watch.
  • At the edit dropdown, you'll see a button "Watch" or "Unwatch".
  • While editing an article you can tick a box to start (or stop) watching it.

Other ways to unwatch a watched page

  • At the end of the URL of any watched article in any wiki, add ?action=unwatch.
