I'm just an ordinary wiki user (not an admin, steward, sysadmin, developer, etc.). My home wiki is the English Wikipedia, but I have accounts on almost every Wikimedia wiki, with e-mail notifications turned on.

I help maintain m:Wikimedia_News and en:Wikipedia:Milestone_statistics, so I watch various projects and tags around here to stay on top of relevant changes.

So you're suggesting that, apart from using the jobqueue, the maintenance script would do the exaclty same thing(s) with broken redirects (not duoble redirects) that redirect.py currently does? Or would it handle redirects it cannot "fix" differently? (Just wanted to clarify the request — it's not like I can actually help write the script.)

OK, @Baloch007: The wiki is back to normal now. Adding a [[wikilink]] to a page in the main namespace (the article space) that doesn't already have any wikilinks will increase the article count. That is the way you can get the article count up to where you think it should be.

Verified my last statement by creating another test page in the main namespace, this time without a link. Didn't increase the article count. Subsequently adding a link didn't increase the count either. And, of course, removing that link afterwards didn't change the count. So now I've really done everything I can.

@Baloch007 Please don't modify text inside a direct quote in a way that misrepresents what was actually posted. When Reedy recounted the wiki, it said 280 articles, not 394. And you don't need to keep simply stating that there are a certain number of articles on the wiki. That's not helping to diagnose the issue.

@Dcljr That's a LTA, why do you trust their so-called configurations?

Well, something weird is going on at pswikivoyage, because AFAICT these two edits should have increased the article count, and these two edits should have decreased it.

By the way, the English Wikipedia is the worst wiki to check things like article count on, because articles are created, deleted, and changed so quickly there. There's literally no way you can be sure the statistics reflect reality on that wiki because "reality" is essentially never static.

I haven't been following this task closely, but note that T185799, which was opened prematurely (in January) by @Assoc and just closed by @Liuxinyu970226 as a duplicate of this one, contained the following items in its description that aren't in (or are not the same in) this task:

Interesting that bnwikivoyage did not show up in the data from last year but it does now.

@Baloch007 Most problems seen on a wiki can be fixed by editing that wiki (which I assume is what happened in this case). In the future, unless you are sure that a software configuration change is necessary, you might want to try asking for help on some wiki talk page that is relevant to your problem (in this case, a talk page at the English Wikivoyage, since that's what you were using for comparison) before submitting a Phabricator task.

@Urbanecm The fix appears to be trivial: someoone simply needs to change the value of 'wgMetaNamespace' for this wiki (at or around line 2945) in InitialiseSettings.php from
