I have 14,523 emails from wikia saying stuff on my watchlist has changed. Until I can figure out how to delete my watchlist without crashing my browser can we all refrain from editting pages on my watchlist >_> (no I didn't break the hotmail server with my inbox thankyou very much!) ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!)

The stupid on the watchlist is that you have to opt out of a page instead of opting in. Who thought of that, and what IQ did they have before the head trauma? Can someone change the "Follow this page" checkbox so we have to opt in instead of opt out? Thanks. Aleister 11:46 21-4-'12
This is Uncyclopedia. You're supposed to use somebody else's email address. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 04:44, April 22, 2012 (UTC)

Actually, the following quote is prolly a better idea. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usSun, Apr 22 '12 8:49 (UTC)
You can delete all of your emails at once with hotmail. Go into your inbox page, and at the top of the page, click the "sweep" button. It will scroll down and choose the "empty this folder" option. When all of the emails go into your "deleted" folder, click onto the folder page and click "empty" at the top of the page to permanently delete. I have just had to do this with over 6000 emails. had it sorted in two minutes.
I have a feeling when I turned that switch on my inbox at the time choked when it got to about 1,000 emails. That meant Wikia sent me around 900 things, I would wait for around ten minutes, and then they'd send me another 900. I was clearing out my inbox for a week. (I've turned it off now - they changed the header of the email so it didn't have the page name in it, which made it useless for my needs as a pop-up on my phones notifications, and it was easier just to patrol my watch list when I had a free moment.)                               Puppy's talk page10:29 22 Apr
