Categories on watchlists[edit source]

I read in the community meeting chat on December 1, that Laralee wondered why adding the helpme template, which automatically adds the user page to this category, does not show up on the watchlist for this category.

Watchlists only show edits/changes to pages/categories and not when they are used/linked to (see MediaWiki:Manual:Watchlist and Wikipedia:Help:Watching pages).

One suggested alternative is to bookmark/review the link Special:RecentChangesLinked/Category:Contributors looking for help. This will show recent changes to pages that are currently included in the category. It will not show changes to pages that were once, but are no longer listed in the category. --Steve 09:55, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for the answer to her question! Fran 20:17, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

I've noticed that helpme tag is not being used properly. I put up a help me and have read others and see that whoever responds automatically change the helpme to help-me-help without following through to be sure there is a solution. If you respond to a help me and offer no help or solution do not change the tag to help-me-helped. There is more than one helper that may want to weigh in on a matter.
