    It can display {{unreferenced}} and something similar in “page issue”. But things like {{moveto}} is invisible. Editing is still inconvenient. A bug deleted almost all things of a page but I don't know unless I reload it. Notification center is needed since many other user will talk to me on my talk page or ping me.
