I think it would be neat to have the option of receiving email updates when someone edits a certain game or series. I'm always on the lookout for updates to particular games or a series as a whole, and find myself revisiting the recent changes list daily in vain. I've looked around, but haven't found such an option present in the current wiki tools. Did I perhaps overlook this option?

That already exists. All you have to do is watch a page. When you want to see what is updated then click the watchlist link in the upper right corner. Anytime a page is edited that you watched, it will appear in that link. There is an option to receive emails under Email options on the preferences page when a page is edited on your watchlist. I wouldn't recommend that option though since I've had bad experiences with it. For one, it fills up your inbox with any edits made to a page you watch (not all edits are worthy of your attention). The other issue I had was that it stopped working for me for like a 6 month period for no reason at all so I never got emails. Then all of the sudden, I got a bunch of emails about page edits from 6 months back (I think this happened after the servers were upgraded or something). For the longest time I was getting emails about GlitterBerri making edits to the Majora's Mask page. It stopped at some point but it kind of sucked.

Very nice. This is exactly what I needed. Really appreciate the information in configuring this. Thanks!

And you don't have to look at the watchlist for updates. You can look at the Recent Changes - with that you can see the ones you have subscribed to in bold and you can see the rest in non-bold text.
