"Orphan" page_tag should ignore non-mainspace backlinks
Closed, ResolvedPublicFeature


Feature summary (what you would like to be able to do and where):

Hi greetings, I'd like to suggest an improvement in page curation toolbar. We know, while using the page info in the tool, we can see the possible issues such as No citation, Orphan, etc. The article is seem to be orphan when there is no links from other pages in the main article namespace. But the tool considers the links from pages in all namespaces, not only from mainspace. Sometimes new articles may not have links from other articles, but from pages in other namespaces such as talks, user talks, etc. The tool does not determine it as orphan, but actually the article is orphan. It will be a great help, if the tool consider the links only from mainspace while determining whether the article is orphan or not. Hope that this issue will fixed.
