Description Ryan Dabler 2006-11-12 01:19:13 UTC
On the English Wikisource, the Special:Wantedpages has an improper display.  It displays 
striked-out items and items which have always existed (and hence, never were "wanted" to 
begin with).  It's been like this for quite some time: pretty much after we got the 
new "Author" and "Portal" namespaces.  No amount of purging the database will fix this 
problem, either.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2006-11-12 07:44:48 UTC
Old pagelinks entries for the old titles haven't been removed, so they end up creeping into the wanted pages reports.

That feature of refreshLinks is currently disabled as the original implementation makes a very large, slow 
transaction which borks up replication. Will fiddle with this a bit...

There is a problem in Thai Wikipedia too. Many pages in project namespace show up with striked-out.
Comment 3 John Mark Vandenberg 2008-09-30 08:58:49 UTC
WantedPages data is stale, but it is displaying the stale data correctly.
