Spam is taking away time and effort every day. However the deletions of it are not marked with tags. I.e. at the deletion log there is a "tag filter" box which does not do anything. Is it possible to associate a tag with each deletion reason (A1, A2,etc) so that I can view the deletion log for each reason separately? Gryllida (chat) 05:35, 1 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Watchlist settings by default

I think it would be nice to have these on by default:

  • Email me when a page or a file on my watchlist is changed
  • Add pages I create and files I upload to my watchlist
  • Add pages and files I edit to my watchlist
  • (Some setting for emailing for each new edit not only the first one?)

Then newcomers would see emails for reviewer comments etc in their inbox. What do you think, and how do I find out whether these settings are currently enabled by default for new users? Gryllida (chat) 23:16, 28 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]
