Wikipedia's distinction shown on the table between a "conservative" and an "inclusive" number of pages originated in 2002 with the replacement of UseModWiki's spontaneous wiki modes with MediaWiki's embedded namespaces.

For Wikimedia projects:

  • The conservative number for the Wikipedia excludes redirects, discussion pages, image description pages, user profile pages, templates, help pages, portals, articles without links to other articles, and pages about Wikipedia. This may not be true for other wikis.
  • The conservative number for Wikimedia Commons and Wiktionary excludes "talk" pages, pages about Wikipedia, minimal "stub" pages, redirects, and others that probably don't qualify as content pages.
