The preference is documented to indicate whether a topic save is 'quiet' ('minor') by default.

This is important for topics such as 'webnotify'.

The checkbox was removed from the GUI a long time ago and replaced with a 'quiet save' button. This was a mistake.

See discussion at http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Codev/TopicPreferenceForQuietSaves and http://twiki.org/p/pub/Codev/KampalaReleaseMeeting2014x02x06/KampalaMeetingLog2014x02x06.txt

The checkbox needs to be put back, and again take its default from DONTNOTIFYCHECKBOX preference (so old webs/topics work).

Suggestion that a new name with a true/false argument would be better is OK going forward.

Note: 'Watch' is missing on TopMenu and greyed-out on the bottom action list. Something needs updating.

FYI, if you are logged out the Watch is missing/grayed out.
