Description Purodha Blissenbach 2008-01-14 00:39:48 UTC
I observed the following in sequence just half an hour ago in the Wikipedia of the Ripuarian languages (ksh):

1. 0:07 o'clock
   a bot program reads
   and copies the data into a statistic page,ßtik
   noting 7233 pages.
   This is the bots edit:
2. 0:46 o'clock
   A user creates another page, seeäge/

3. 1:08 o'clock
   I inspect
   which still shows 7233 pages.
   I seach for page deletions, none in recent changes, none in the logs
   for the time in question.

So, I must assume, this page creation was not counted.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2008-01-14 23:38:11 UTC
That page doesn't meet the "good-article-count" criteria, so would not be counted. Thus it is expected that the count would not change.
Comment 2 Roan Kattouw 2008-01-15 15:02:22 UTC
To clarify on that, a page is only counted as an article if it is:
1. In the main namespace (Wikipedia:Shtatißtik is in the Wikipedia namespace)
2. Not a redirect
3. Contains at least one internal link
