Watching Category Pages

+3 votes
When in edit mode on a Category page there is a "Watch this page" check box at the bottom. I've checked this on a few I'm interested in monitoring but wonder what this really does as I can't find any list of those pages that I've checked.  Is this non-functional  or am I missing something?

Currently, that feature is only really useful to Supervisors. The reason for that is that WikiTree uses its own custom Watchlist, rather than the standard wiki one, which only works for profiles. Category pages, talk pages, etc. go in the standard wiki watchlist, which at this time can only be accessed by Supervisors.
