Hello. I've a question about Notification/Alert tabs. One of the things that creates a popup is a when a new link is added to a page that links to a page that you created. Is there a way to edit that list? There are several pages that I'd love to monitor when a new article links to (e.g. whenever a new page links to Catalytic triad). Any ideas?

Have you checked the notification tab in your preferences?

Yes they are. Check the notifications section in your wiki preferences. There should be an option for a page link. There you can enable web alerts and email alerts.

The page links tickbox seems to only notify me for links to pages that I created. Is it possible to add pages that I did not create to that list. e.g I did not create Catalytic triad, but I did expand it from a stub to a GA. Apologies for having been unclear in the original post!

Sorry, I could be wrong about this but I am pretty sure that if you enable the page link alert option as shown in the screenshot posted by @MarkAHershberger that it should work only if you are watching the page that you wish to monitor. If you have anymore questions please let me know. Thanks!

So I have that enabled, but it seems to only notify me about pages that I created. Can I also have it notify me about pages that I did not create? If you click the little circled "i" icon, it states:

"Notify me when someone links to a page I created from another page."

Is there a way to add pages that I did not create to that list?

If that does not work then I sadly can no longer help you. The way I told you is how mine worked but if that method does not work for you then sadly I am unable to help you. Sorry.

Never mind - perhaps it was never to be. Thank you for the help anyway!
