[wmf.24] Some pages nominated for deletion using Page Curation (afd) missing from NPP feed
Closed, InvalidPublic


While checking T206585, I checked Special:Deletion tag log, I found two articles that were mark for deletion with afd tag and are present in Special:Log/Deletion tag log but were not in the NPP feed ( the pages are not found in pagetriage_page).

(1) Nurgul Jones article has the following record in Special:Deletion tag log

The article has the proper template {{Article for deletion/dated|page=Nurgul Jones|timestamp=20181008215632|year=2018|month=October|day=8|substed=yes}} and Category:Articles for deletion
The article history shows that the article was nominated for deletion.

Note: from the screenshot above, the second line form the log Atlas (musician) article is present in the feed.

(2) The same for Evolution Tour (Anastacia) article -

It looks like an NPP reviewer also noticed this, and we will want to fix it.

There is a script, updatePageTriageQueue.php that cleans up "old" items from the page triage queue. Its criteria for old is to look at the timestamp of when items were added to the queue, and remove items older than 30 days if:

// 1. the page is in the article namespace and has been reviewed, or
// 2. the page is not in main or draft namespaces or
// 3. the page is a redirect

The Nurgul Jones article matches criteria 1, as it was added to the pagetriage queue on September 3 2018. The Anastacia redirect matches criteria 3.

It would probably make more sense to remove items from the queue 30 days after the last triage action was performed, rather than 30 days after the day it was added to the queue. That could be a good feature request for future development.

Thx, @kostajh - yes, it'd make much more sense.
