Wikia replaced the Watchlist link on monobook for a link to Special:Following, which is useless, presumably in the hopes that you won't notice that the Watchlist doesn't actually work for blog comments or article comments (though email notifications are sent out for these, so go figure). If you still prefer a link to your watchlist (and who wouldn't, seeing as I haven't figured out what Special:Following is good for at all), you can add the following jQuery code to either

// restore watchlist link
$(document).ready(function(){
$("#pt-following").html('<a href="/wiki/Special:Watchlist" title="The list of pages you are monitoring for changes [l]" accesskey="l">my watchlist</a>');
});

This works wonders, thanks -- RandomTime 19:55, September 8, 2010 (UTC)


Just a note, this was a bug, not an intended change. We're looking into it, and are working to quickly revert it. Mea culpa--Uberfuzzy@Wikia 20:11, September 8, 2010 (UTC)

Ok, I'll subtract 5 points from your evilness score. ;) --◄mendel► 20:13, September 8, 2010 (UTC)
Only 5? Bug is fixed, coming live to a server near you soon. --Uberfuzzy@Wikia 23:00, September 8, 2010 (UTC)
