Re: Bots and talk page[edit]

You made a comment [[2]] to the effect that talk page aren't being watched because they don't have a lot of content. That's simply wrong, because if you watch an article, you automatically watch the talk page. You can't separate the two. This is why they are so annoying, you get tons of articles popping on your watchlist for little to no reason. Updating a parameter is fine. Bypassing a redirect is not, and things like WP:EASTEREGG certainly don't apply because that's about linking to something that looks like X, but links to Y. Where putting {{WPUSA}} on a talk page someone clearly and unambiguously tags the page with WikiProject United States' banner (and not say WikiProject Union of South Africa).

No need to reply to this. I just wanted to point out that talk pages are watched by just as many people as the main articles are. Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 05:32, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, Headbomb. Yes I understood that watchers see both talk and article. For articles about most journals, neither are widely watched. Most have had only a few distinct human editors, sometimes only one.[3], [4], [5] (see the entry at Total number of distinct authors) The only editors likely to be annoyed by this are the few actively engaged in WikiProject Academic Journals.
