Description Ruhrfisch 2008-02-19 02:08:47 UTC
On the English Wikipedia, Special:Unwatchedpages is nearly useless because it only shows the first 1000 articles. My suggestion is to split it into multiple subpages each based on the first character of the article: i.e. one for each letter of the alphabet, one for each number 0 through 9, plus whatever special character(s) would be needed (either all in one page, or perhaps one page for each?). The idea is that this would make Special:Unwatchedpages/A, etc. into useful pages.

This is related to [] and [].
Comment 1 Danny B. 2008-02-19 13:30:07 UTC
Changed the summary to be more general. Having the fixed set of subpages isn't so flexible. Thus the same behavior as Special:Prefixindex would be desirable.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2008-02-26 21:18:55 UTC
The fundamental problem is that this is an expensive report, and currently only the first N entries are saved into the querycache table when it's regenerated.

Unless the complete data set were generated and kept, changing the reporting display would have little to no benefit.
