Special:Wantedpages shows mostly dead users, due to users signing lots of talk
pages, and then having their username/user page deleted. Special:Wantedpages
should filter user pages by default.
Bug 6 is also about a limiting query option on Special:Wantedpages.
It's not that many, and the cached Wantedpages stores the top 1000 so you can scroll past them easily. I don't think this is
much of a problem.
[At least some of them are simply due to erroneous links that haven't been cleared from the tables properly and could probably
be removed by a regeneration...]
You're right, I counted only 70 dead users out of 1000. Mark this as a dupe of
...Although 7% is a reasonable proportion, and it should be an easy bug to fix.
Why would you ever want to see user pages in Special:Wantedpages?
Closing as WONTFIX; there's just no good reason to complicate this with extra
options or permanently hiding large classes of links.
