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.

Dcljr added a comment to T83609: create script & docs to rename wiki databases.

Took the liberty of changing the task name, to try to clarify what exactly was being discussed here. It would be nice to have a better task description, but maybe it doesn't really matter now that it's been declined?

Although the wiki has been added to the sitematrix, it has not shown up in the interwiki map yet (i.e., [[:smn:]] doesn't work). Isn't that usually done as part of the wiki-creation task?

The second option would be fine for wikis using the 'any' article-count method, but I'm afraid it would be just as confusing as the current link on wikis using the 'link' method (since there's no way to filter out dead-end pages in the list).

@Dcljr Okay. You managed to disable that template, but what about 352,404 articles that is using this one — Шаблон:Кратак опис?

If we just disable it, then it leaves a large number of articles using it for no reason. So the question is: Should the template be massively removed from articles or will and can a local exception be created for sr.wiki?

Dcljr added a comment to T240746: Enable {{SHORTDESC: }} magic word on sr.wiki.

@Acamicamacaraca: Because the {{SHORTDESC}} magic word only works on the English Wikipedia, the simplest way of fixing the problem in the short-term is to replace all instances of {{SHORTDESC: (which invokes a magic word) with {{SHORTDESC| (which calls a template). This needs to be done in the local version of Template:Short_description and any other templates that invoke the magic word directly (and, of course, in any articles that invoke the magic word directly, but hopefully there are none of those).

Dcljr added a comment to T236861: Create Minangkabau Wiktionary.

@Harditaher: Whlie in the Incubator, pages were counted if they were in a particular category. Now, like most other Wikimedia wikis, main-namespace pages are counted only if they contain a [[wikilink]] to another page on the same wiki. Therefore, if you link key terms in your definitions, like the word "simalakamo" in the "malakamo" entry, then such pages will contribute to the content-page count of the wiki.

Just a heads-up: The last wiki created, banwiki, has had issues with imported pages not showing up in categories. A null edit fixes the problem for each affected page. This seems to suggest that importing was done before the wiki was properly configured to recognize the local prefix "Kategori:" as equivalent to "Category:". If this is the case, we should be careful to prevent this from happening again with mnwwiki (and in the future).

Dcljr added a comment to T231770: napwikisource reports more content pages than all pages in its main namespace.

Another FWIW: I checked the last wiki to be created before this one (Western Armenian Wikipedia, which also had problems during its creation—see, e.g., T212597#5065429), and the content-page count over there (7,478) is entirely reasonable given the count of non-redirects in the main namespace (7,626) and the apparent level of linking seen in its articles (30 out of 30 randomly chosen main-namespace pages contained wikilinks).

OBTW, FWIW, on Sep 9 (I think it was), I went through and null-edited every page in napwikisource's main namespace. It didn't seem to have any immediate effect on the content-page count, but I mention it here in case its effect was only seen when the wiki was recounted just now. (I don't know how likely that is, but it doesn't look to me like the increase in count from Sep 1 to today can be explained solely based on on-wiki editing activity. I could be wrong, though.)

I hate to butt in here (OK, not really), but could the problems being discussed here possibly explain (and maybe ultimately lead to a fix of) the weirdness that is being seen in the content-page count of napwikisource, as discussed at T231770?

FYI, the wiki was just recounted again (on September 15th), and it again gave an impossible number. So, the situation has not improved. In fact, the count seems to be diverging even farther away from the correct count.

…Or am I just misunderstanding and this (@Zoranzoki21's suggestion) is not being proposed as a "permanent fix" to the problem?

OK, it's fine to seek consensus about this change, but why is this the proposed solution to the reported problem? This is not trying to fix the underlying issue (whatever it may be), just trying to avoid it — and doing so in a way that presumably will not be acceptable to at least some wikis that may encounter the same problem in the future (so this cannot be used as a general workaround).

OBTW (again), I guess I should have also pointed out that the total number of pages in the main namespace (including redirects and the Main Page) is now 206 (would have been 205 on Sep 2).

BTW, I already acknowledged the 'link' counting method was being used in the task description. My point about "non-redirects in the main namespace" is that the count given by 'link' should not be higher than the highest possible count 'any' could give, which in this case is (or was) 183.

While we're at it, would it be possible to add a new namespace for Wikiprojects? Something like:

"104": {
     "id": 104,
     "case": "first-letter",
     "subpages": "",
     "canonical": "Prugetto",
     "*": "Prugetto"
 },

I can't really help with this, since I don't know which configuration allows for the kind of automatic translation you're talking about (I'm not a sysadmin or developer).

The kind of configuration quoted in the description seems to be the standard way of handling the "Author" namespace.

Also, not sure how acceptable it is to discuss this at AN, and how visible this is/was to local community. Was it announced via Village pump or similar?
[...]

This was announced on our Scriptorium pointing to the discussion. Beside that, the requirement for a site request is for a consensus, you don't get to decide the where that occurs as long as it is reasonable place for discussion. Please don't create rules and look to impose them on communities.
