MediaWiki Administrator's Handbook/Pages to watch
These are pages administrators may wish to add to their watchlist or check frequently on individual Wikimedia projects.
The administrators are the only contributors allowed to modify the MediaWiki and the protected pages (like Main Page). Consequently they should have a look on them to avoid any discouraging project immobilism.
