[[Image:Watchlist.jpg|rightthumb|200pxA general example of a Watchlist.]]
A '''Watchlist''' is a set of personally selected pages that allows you help in [[Help:Tracking changes|tracking changes]].
[[Image:Watch this Page - Add Watchlist.jpg|thumb|Method 3]].
There are a multiple of ways to add pages to your Watchlist:
*1.) Before you see anything interesting here, you have to actually add some pages to your watchlist. Do so by navigating to a page that interests you, and click the "{{int:watch}}" link available in a menu that opens when you hover the mouse cursor over the arrow to the left of the search box. Generally, these link appears as a '''Star''' icon.
*2.) You can also add a page to your Watchlist by using the Keyboard Controls '''Alt & Shift & W.'''
*3.) A page can be added to the Watchlist in the Edit window, on the Wikitext tab, by clicking on '''Watch this Page'' which is located under the Edit summary summary box.
:*The same button can be clicked also in the '''Preview''' tab and '''Changes''' tab.
===Removing Pages from your Watchlist===
The watchlist feature is mainly useful on a very busy wiki where the "{{int:recentchanges}}" display becomes too overwhelming with many changes you don't want to follow. On a typical low traffic wiki, you can normally see all of the editing activity across the whole wiki without feeling overwhelmed. On a more busy wiki you will find that many edits are taking place on pages which you personally find less interesting. To help track changes which are more interesting, start watching pages!
