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,
noting 7233 pages.
This is the bots edit:
2. 0:46 o'clock
A user creates another page, see
3. 1:08 o'clock
I inspect http://ksh.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spezial:Statistik
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.
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.
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
