I'm a bit stumped, but may have missed a change somewhere on how
watchlist tokens are supposed to be called using the API.
I'm logged in and get
but it returns the error "Action 'watch' is not allowed for the
current user" and fails to pass me a watch token. I have also tried
this as a post rather than a get, but with the identical result.
Was there some security change that
<http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API:Watch> does not reflect?
I'm not doing anything sneaky, I would just like a sensible way of
trimming down my uneditable 90,000 pages long watchlist on Commons.
