I'm guessing this is because the log was never (purposely?) back filled after the feature was added in T12331: Introduce page creation log

https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/399897/ was merged July 2018

The page creation log is a relatively recent addition, it isn't as old as the French Wikipedia: T12331: Introduce page creation log
Not sure if it should be retroactively populated.

edit: meh.

Sorry for the disturbance, I remembered wrongly to see such entry older than 2018. I must have confuse with creation of users. One can close the ticket from my point of view.

Ammarpad renamed this task from Log of creation of page show only recents entries on french wikipedia to Page creation log show only recents entries.Mar 17 2019, 6:08 PM

There's no disturbance. I think it's a valid question whether the logs should be backfilled or not.

Yes, I think this has been asked at English Wikipedia's village pump but no one seem to have created a phab ticket.

CC'ing @kaldari as the author of the patch for his input

T12331 isn't tagged Community-Tech so I don't know whether it's in their purview or whether @kaldari just did it out of personal motivation/interest :)
