The CollaborativeWatchlist extension allows a defined group of users ("watchers") to track changes of a defined set of "watched" pages. Changes which already have been checked by a watcher will not be displayed on the CollaborativeWatchlist to other watchers. This is especially useful for bigger wikis with editorial groups working in specific subsets of a wiki's content. Collaborative watchlists are similar to MediaWiki's default watchlist: they show changes in a list of pages or as it is the case with the CollaborativeWatchlist in articles and categories, watching categories simply places all articles from the category on the watchlist. The main advantage ofthe CollaborativeWatchlist are per user watchlists this allows a group of trusted users to observe changes. Therefore only one watcher is needed to check if a change is correct, and then this article is removed from the collaborative watchlist. Double checking of articles by two ore more already trusted users is prevented. Every "watcher" can log in to the CollaborativeWatchlist tool. Watchers can select the watchlists belonging to them as defined by the administrator. There should be a standard watchlist for every user, that gets selected on every login.
