As designed auto watch on submission

Not sure this is a bug (I doubt it is) but i'll file the report on the offchance.

When you submit a resource you automatically watching that resource (atleast on the discussion side) but when I visit "watched resources" in the tablinks that resource is not listed. As designed?

Edit: Just realized I should have posted this in RM bug reports (pending it's a bug) sorry.

Hey Shelley,

You can't watch your own resources (there's no reason to, you don't need an alert when you receive an update) so I think you're talking about the thread being automatically Watched which I think you'll find does appear but in the Watched Threads page.

You are automatically watching the thread, not the resource, so naturally it won't show up there. There's no real point in watching the resource - you're the only one that can update it.
