Hello everyone,

I'm very excited to announce a new feature created by the Community Tech[1] team: Watchlist Expiry. With this feature, you can optionally select to watch a page for a temporary period of time. This feature is now available on all wikis. It was developed in response to the #7 request[2] in the 2019 Community Wishlist Survey[3]. To learn more, you can check out the Help:Watchlist_Expiry[4] page on Mediawiki.org, as well as the project page[5]. Since this is a new feature, we invite you to share your feedback. Thank you, and we look forward to checking out your feedback on the project talk page![6]

Thank you!

Ilana Fried
