A user's watchlist contains those pages they are
interested in 'keeping an eye on', either because of
subject interest or, more often, because they created
or edited it on a previous occasion and now feel some
sense of 'ownership' of the article so want to check
what happens to it in the future.

However, the watchlist shows *all* updates to the
watchlist pages within the timeframe selected, no
matter who made the last change.

I propose that adjacent to the timeframe option is a
further one which would permit the user to remove (ie
not display) those where the user's own edits are the
latest ones recorded.

Implementation would appear to be an additional clause
in the SELECT of the form 'WHERE <currentuser> Ź= <last
edited by>'.

    Good idea. Users know what pages they have edited
    themselves ("my contributions"); listing self-contributions on
    [[Special:Watchlist]] adds unnecessary clutter.
