Description Felix Pahl 2004-09-14 14:32:53 UTC
Go to a page (e.g.
which exists but whose Talk page doesn't exist. Click on the red link to
"discussion". You get a page titled "Editing Talk:Endormorphism ring", but
further down it says "Wikipedia does not yet have a page called Endomorphism ring."
The "Talk:" prefix is missing.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2004-09-14 17:45:11 UTC
Wikipedia's customized [[MediaWiki:Newarticletext]] message uses {{PAGENAME}} which does not include the namespace.

Should it include the namespace, or do we need another variable which includes it in a visually consistent way? (We wouldn't want to use 
{{NAMESPACE}}:{{PAGENAME}} as this would produce an ugly colon on article namespace.) Changing {{PAGENAME}} would break some other messages 
on Wikipedia that assume it doesn't include a namespace.
Comment 2 Wil Mahan 2004-10-12 17:24:22 UTC
How about "Wikipedia does not yet have a {{NAMESPACE}} page called {{PAGENAME}}"?
It's kind of a hack.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2005-06-02 02:12:31 UTC
Currently says "Wikipedia does not yet have a Talk page called Endomorphism ring."

Reassigning to Wikimedia web sites and marking fixed.
