I may have a blackout on this, so please help.
I have a wikipedia account with a confirmed email. I have checked the box "Email me when a page or file on my watchlist is changed".
I have two pages on my watchlist: 1. a page I edited 2. my sandbox page
I have visited my sandbox page several times and edited it. But I have not received any notification emails.
What did I do wrong?
This is one instruction that I believe I have followed:
*If your Preferences has "Email me when a page or file on my watchlist is changed" set, then only by visiting a page will you actually set its email notification flag.
Once you miss the email for a particular page change or don't visit the page (or ignore the email), you will not receive any more emails for that page. You can still dutifully monitor that page by its watchlist edit-summaries, but its particular email notification flag will remain unset until you visit it. This facilitates monitoring a large watchlist while preventing potentially useless emails to you.*
