Can Family Activity Feed show Trusted Lists Additions/Removals?

+11 votes
Is it possible to include additions to Trusted Lists on the Family Activity Feed, afterall, it is an additiion to your Watchlist.  For at least the third time somebody put me on apparently the trusted list of their whole watchlist and as you might imagen this goes way above the 5000 threshhold.  This has always happened with persons that are not very experienced with the Wikitree.  I will say it creates a reluctance to help new people for fear of this happening.  Since I like to work on the Wikitree daily I don't really have the time or patience to wait on them to answer my email asking them to reverse this action if they would even know how.  And as far as using the Bulk Trusted List changes tool that works to an extent, but if you select for instance remove this person and all descendants, you could be removing yourself from even your own profile or profiles where it was a hassle to get on the trusted list for in the first place.  With trusted list additions shown on the Family Activity Feed you could at least know to what extent the problem exists.

Hi Vincent,

I appreciate your frustration. Thank you for helping so many people on WikiTree.

Adding a history item for each Trusted List addition would crowd the system significantly. It would be a lot of data, and it would make Activity Feeds difficult to use in various contexts. For example, we only send up to 100 changes in the weekly e-mail update.

I think we'll need to develop a separate system for tracking and monitoring TL additions. That won't be easy, though, so if it can wait we'll be able to work on other priorities.

Can a Wikiteam leader reverse Trusted List additions after the fact if it happens again?  That would be comforting to know.
