Description Kevin Yin 2006-10-14 06:10:09 UTC
Many of the link thingies are very much outdated.  For example, the
whatlinkshere page for the disambig page for "Aliens" contains a link to James
Cameron, but James's page clearly links to the film.

This prevents me from making any headway against pages linking to disambig pages.
Comment 1 Schnargel 2006-10-15 01:11:14 UTC
Please state which wiki you're talking about next time.
Assuming this is about en.wikipedia: [[James Cameron]] contains multiple "Aliens" links, at least one of them in == Filmography 
(Screenwriter) == pointing to the disambiguation page [[Aliens]] which is correctly shown by that whatlinkshere page.

If you have an example thingy that gives evidence of your claim please reopen the bug.
