{{wi}} (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Wi) is used on Wikipedia pages to
indicate the page exists at Wiktionary. Unfortunately, all pages with this
template are showing up in [[Special:Shortpages]] since the template is the only
thing on the page. Please could [[Special:Shortpages]] exclude pages that
include nothing but a template?

At de: we aren't using the special page anymore, mainly because it lists types
of pages that cannot be extended.

Instead we create a similar list after every database dump: [[de:Wikipedia:Kurze
Artikel]]. For this list we exclude disambiguation pages, wictionary links,
misspelling redirections, copyright infringements and lists.

There is a similar english list at [[Wikipedia:Shortpages]].

Same thing in commons. Template:Seecat
(http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Template:Seecat) is sometimes used in
articles for linking in the category namespace (eg
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mir). (User:Breeze)

So how do you intend to find really short pages that include only a template? :)

Ok, stupid idea. If Bug#:710 is fixed, I'm happy. (commons:User:Breeze)

WONTFIX, not the purpose of this special page, plus it would be too expensive.
