As multiple co-authors & contributors can edit an article and there can be many edits to an article, it would make sense to display article edits.
On members page it would be nice to display the members with the most article edits. This will highlight the main article contributors for articles.
As multiple users can edit an article, then it would be very useful to be able to WATCH the article for edits.
This would be useful to users interested in the topic. But its also useful for the co-authors to be alerted that the article has changed. It would make sense to always alert co-authors...
