Most of the special pages list pages according to certain criteria.
It would be more user friendly to list them as ordered list having the next page started on proper number.
This would have at least following two benefits:
1. It would give the imagination of amount of listed pages to user (since some special pages miss the total count - see bug 11228 eg.)
2. It would allow quicker and more flexible referring to items in list (user can refer to number, which could be found quickly by scrolling, and not to certain name which is usually searched by search dialog).
3. Users would be able to count their contributions by setting [[Special:Contributions]] to display many items and scrolling to the bottom, thus freeing up toolserver resources used by that darn edit counter :)
What's the action item or action items here? Which pages in particular would you like to see changed? A generic bug about changing "unordered lists to ordered" can't be acted upon. Please be more specific.
Any special page which lists pages currently using unordered list.
