Description Servien 2008-01-30 13:11:23 UTC
The article count on nds-nl (and probably elsewhere as well) doesn't seem to change after an article has been deleted.

For example: there are 2.600 articles, someone adds the page "loser" and now there are 2.601 "articles", the page is then deleted but the article count still remains 2.601, instead of returning to "2.600" why is that?

Regards,
Servien

This page would not have increased the article count, since it contained no "[[". Thus the count would not go down when it's deleted. (Something else at the same time may have increased the article count.)
Comment 2 Servien 2008-02-02 16:00:28 UTC
But this way the article counters will never show the true number of articles. Since a lot of non sense articles contain [[ as well...

That's not the only criterium. A page is only counted as an article if:

* it's in the main namespace, AND
* it's not a redirect, AND
* it contains at least one internal link

This means disambiguation pages and stubs are counted as well, but talk and user pages aren't.
