Description Betacommand 2006-09-27 00:48:31 UTC
There is Special:Categories that shows all of the categories but there is about
5-8% of thise categories dont exist they are red linked categories that are
populated but the page for them does not exist. could you add a Special page
that identifies these as there are many categories that need taken care of
Either emptied or have the page created, and manualy  looking 1,000 categories
at a time is very laborious and repetitve. and needs to be re looked though a
lot and there are +170,000 categories to look though.
Comment 1 Jimmy Collins 2006-09-27 16:29:29 UTC
The features you requested do already exist. See f.e.:
Comment 2 Betacommand 2006-09-27 17:27:16 UTC
that is not what I am requesting
In it lists every populated
category. 5-8% of those populated categories do not exist (they are redlinked).
Is  there a away that you could extract those from
Comment 3 Rob Church 2006-12-09 10:55:18 UTC
You *mean* that you want to hide categories from Special:Categories where the
corresponding category page does *not* exist?
Comment 4 Betacommand 2006-12-09 11:16:45 UTC
I want to Identify all categories that do *not* exist yet are populated
the category has pages in it yet the page for the cat was never created the
category is redlinked yet has pages categorized in it.
Comment 5 Rob Church 2006-12-09 11:31:51 UTC
Then you *do* want Special:Wantedcategories, from comment 1.
Comment 6 Betacommand 2006-12-09 11:36:21 UTC
Kinda, as that shows some of the redlinked cats. that also shows some created
cats. and  it does not have them in any order. 
Comment 7 Rob Church 2006-12-09 12:29:08 UTC
Well, as the message at the top states, it's cached. Ordering might be something
we can tweak, though.
