Mysterious Wikipedia user subpages

On the English Wikipedia en:Wikipedia:Orphan page, there are tons of unlinked user subpages. Maybe I'm just a bit obsessive about the Orphans page, but they don't need to be there. So I'm listing them below, for the Users to de-orphan if they want to. I suspect that some of these pages are simply forgotten about...
- Seem to be just redirects.--Patrick 23:36, 6 Jul 2004 (UTC)
- I removed from this list the pages that were gone.
I also corrected the "Orphans" link above from [[w:Orphans]] to [[Wikipedia:Orphan]]. This page should redirect to Wikipedia:Orphaned_Articles, or should be maintained regularly. Xaminmo 20:52, 6 January 2006 (UTC)
- Yep that didn't work I am afraid, should be en:Wikipedia:Orphan and en:Wikipedia:Orphaned Articles. Possibly the wiki namespaces have changed. MrWeeble 09:12, 11 April 2006 (UTC)
Don't see the problem with users maintaining an orphaned page. For instance, I might be drafting an article on a subpage in my userspace, but if I put a link to it on my userpage that might be making it more public than I currently want it to be. Orphans are obviously undesirable in the main space, but in my own userspace? Doesn't matter as long as I remember the URL.188.8.131.52 14:38, 18 November 2007 (UTC)
