Description Purodha Blissenbach 2008-01-24 22:35:05 UTC
Special:Wanted pages
in Wikipedias is cached data and has not been updated since
half a year to two years, depending on language.
I suggest the link to this page to be removed.
Presenting wrong and more than stale data is too bewildering.

Alternatively, it should be updated at least monthly.

So far I know there's same problem with some other special pages. I've been told that the re-generating of them was originally supposed to be disabled only on large projects because of performance reasons, but been disabled everywhere since it takes some time to do specific configuration and there's no time for it at the moment.

Bug 15434 related. Suggesting WONTFIX this in favor of that one.
Comment 3 Bryan Baron 2009-10-26 02:37:59 UTC
WONTFIX/dupe of Bug 15434.
