Wednesday, December 11th[edit]

Picking up where I left off yesterday. First up. Where do articles start?

Missing Wikipedia and Wikipedia_talk (4 & 5). *sigh* I know what happened. The canonical name for "Wikipedia" namespace is "Project", but no one refers to it as that. Time to re-process these moves. --Halfak (WMF) (talk) 17:52, 11 December 2013 (UTC)[reply]

There we go! It looks like we have a lot of pages that started in User (ns=2). Quite a few started in Wikipedia_talk (ns=5). I'm guessing that most are AfC articles (and still currently drafts). But the vast majority of pages started directly in Main (ns=0). --Halfak (WMF) (talk) 21:28, 11 December 2013 (UTC)[reply]
