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, well, the regularly scheduled semimonthly recount of all Wikimedia wikis has fixed the stats for satwiki (so, removing that from the task title/description), but those for zhwikiversity are still waiting on T201675 (the wiki was just recounted, but the article count is [presumably] wrong because of the pages in the main namespace that belong elsewhere).

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.

And same for a Wikipedia, acewiki: count at 7443; add a link → no change in 7 minutes; create linked article → count up to 7444; wait 12 more minutes → no further increase due to added link. (For evidence, just see my contributions from today on that wiki. Be quick, though, as this wiki has an active admin, who may delete the page I created.)

(Re: not credible) Unless the MW code is materially different in how it handles article-count changes based on adding or removing links to existing pages (intentionally delayed for some reason) versus those based on creating a new page (immediate).

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.

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.

Yes, thanks. In case anyone's interested, it looks like the entire wiki contents were actually imported after initSiteStats.php was run (the first time). The second run that just happened changed the "article" count from 375 to 332. Can't say on-wiki activity was not responsible for any of this, but there were certainly no mass deletions in that time and a quick check of contributions by "active users" did not reveal any mass removal of wikilinks, either. So it looks like the count was off purely due to the importing.

Thanks for letting me know about that option.

FYI, as I post this I'm still seeing the same problem on the English Wikipedia, although the failure rate is way down. Now when I get an error it seems like just waiting a few seconds and trying again will usually (but not always) be successful. Weird. I've posted to the technical Village Pump (which maybe I should have done before opening this task… oh, well) to see if anyone else is having this problem.

FWIW, I do not seem to have any problem removing pages from my huwiki watchlist using the Special:EditWatchlist interface (removed one page, then later removed two at the same time).

Oops, sorry. This is on the English Wikipedia. It is still happening now, although not to the degree it was earlier today.

Note that one of the phrases in DannyH's post to Commons was hidden by a wiki-typo (fix seen in this edit). The last sentence in the quoted text in the task description should read:

Hey, here's an idea: everyone stop commenting on Alsee's behavior and limit your posts to discussing the task.

@Krinkle could you please post (a version of) your last comment in this task to T188472, so it can inform the conversation over there?

OK, looks like I was a bit pessimistic in my assessment of 'comma' based counting. According to T59788#4008838, it is correctly implemented when a page is saved.

Well, since enwikibooks and ptwikibooks just got recounted using initSiteStats.php, their article counts are, in effect, no longer based on the 'comma' criterion. (!)

We're recounting articles on the content wikis monthly (T68867) but recounting all stats on all wikis semimonthly? That don't seem right…

@EddieGP @demon Who will be running the script on the remaining wikis? Is there a planned schedule for this? Any ideas when this task might be completed? Just curious...

@Dcljr I've noticed your interest on these statistics in other tasks and just wanted to give you a quick head-up that we just refreshed all the statistics for most of the wikis (the list in the task description tracks the remainder that are still to be done).

BTW, more interesting to me (since I was already familiar with the ugly history of article counting) were the large changes in total pages and page edits seen in some wikis. Why would those counts be so far off? Importing bugs? Page-deletion bugs?

Keep in mind that some of the large differences between old and new counts seen at m:Wikimedia_News#February_2018 may be due to bugs that have been fixed for many years. The changes seen with this latest recount (T186947#3974067) reflects the cumultaive inaccuracy in stats since the affected wikis were first created (or at least since they were last recounted, which [AFAIK] most Wikibooks wikis have never been); it doesn't necessarily reflect the current inaccuracy in stats.

Oh, yeah... enwikibooks and ptwikibooks did just experience large changes in article counts. So they must be on s3.

Dcljr added a comment to T186947: many statistics have fallen to 0 on azwiktionary, ruwikiquote, and ptwikisource.

FYI: Because s3 contains Wikibooks wikis, which are not part of the monthly article recount that has been happening since 2015 (T68867), those wikis have just seen their first recounting since maybe forever (?). As a result, there have been significant changes in article counts (and total pages, and even edits) on those wikis. See m:Wikimedia_News#February_2018 for (some of) the gory details. (I can post "full" details, like I did for the article recounts of 29 March 2015, later if someone wants them.)

Dcljr added a comment to T186947: many statistics have fallen to 0 on azwiktionary, ruwikiquote, and ptwikisource.

Totally naive suggestion: Could this be fixed by simply recounting images on the affected wikis (so the counts in the database are no longer negative)? Or could that cause other problems?
