Description Muke Tever 2005-04-19 02:45:17 UTC
I understand that regenerating Wantedpages in full is an expensive operation, which is why the 
Wikimedia projects generally show cached results.  But Wantedpages becomes useless when, say, the first 
page of results is almost entirely extant articles (with no indication to the would-be-helpful user 
that some or many of the articles exist!)

So, instead of regenerating Wantedpages in full, might it possible for Wantedpages, when working from 
cached results, to a) check whether any of its links have already been created [like normal pages do, 
perhaps] and perhaps b) remove those from its cache before presenting it to the user?
Comment 1 Zigger 2005-05-07 06:06:08 UTC
Changed from enhancement to minor bug, as existing pages should not be shown as
missing pages (red with edit links).
Comment 2 Zigger 2005-06-30 20:19:29 UTC
In addition to the link correction (comment 1), perhaps the strike-out approach
from the bug 2630 fix could also be done for Special:Wantedpages ?
Comment 3 Rob Church 2006-04-22 02:38:18 UTC
Should be addressed in SVN trunk, r13809. Existence was being checked as it is,
but not used, it seems. The code will now output a struck-out blue link when a
page exists, and a red link when it doesn't.
