Discrepancy with English Wikipedia[edit]

At Oversight policy#English Wikipedia there are 51 names listed, but at en:Special:ListUsers/oversight there are 49 people listed. The former has three names not in the latter: Alison; Beeblebrox; and Seraphimblade, all of which gave up (or otherwise lost) the oversight right during 2016. That reduces it from 51 to 48 - the discrepancy between that and my 49 is that Jimbo Wales is not listed here, although he does have the oversighter right. --Redrose64 (talk; at English Wikipedia) 18:29, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

The list is up-to-date at Oversight policy/Requests for oversight, which is then transcluded onto the main page. I'll try a null edit to see if that fixes it. Ajraddatz (talk) 18:34, 26 May 2016 (UTC)
Fixed. Turns out you need to mark the subpage for translation again, or else it doesn't update the en version. I hate the translate extension... Edit: just removed Seraphimblade as well. Should be all good now. Ajraddatz (talk) 18:41, 26 May 2016 (UTC)
Thank you very much!Thank you very much! --Redrose64 (talk; at English Wikipedia) 19:13, 26 May 2016 (UTC)
It's a very logical behaviour since what's not marked translatable for all language can't be seen as valid for the English version either. --Vogone (talk) 12:14, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
