Abstract

What Wikipedia pages on Economy are they often consulted in English... but there are not created in Gaelic?

(Following the ideas described in the following blog entry: Zer falta da nire jakintza eremuan? from the Basque Wikipedia User Group)

Pages in the English Wikipedia for the category "Econonomy" (using a depth value of 2): https://tools.wmflabs.org/glamtools/treeviews/?q={%22pagepile%22:%2214727%22}

Or similarly for the category "Computer Science" (using a depth value of 2): https://tools.wmflabs.org/massviews/?platform=all-access&agent=user&source=pagepile&target=14715&range=latest-20&sort=views&direction=1&view=list

Example: Six steps to obtain a list of Wikipedia pages on Economy that are often consulted in English... but that they are not in Gaelic Wikipedia?

Fig. 1. Looking for wikipedia missing pages. (1. step)

1. Go to https://petscan.wmflabs.org/

in the area "Categories" write the category "Econonomy" (using a depth value of 2)

(See Fig. 1)

Fig. 2. Looking for wikipedia missing pages. (2nd step)

2. In the area "Wikidata". Then be sure that the pages are in English (enwiki), French (frwiki), Russian (ruwiki), and Catalan (cawiki) wikipedias, but that they have no been created in the Gaelic Wikipedia (gawiki) (See Fig. 2)

Fig. 3. Looking for wikipedia missing pages. (3rd step)

3. In the area "Output". Select "Pagefile" as the format for the results. (See Fig. 3)

Fig. 4. Looking for wikipedia missing pages. (4th step)

4. The query is ready. Then click on "Do it"

You get a number (19847) that will represent the 506 pages found:

(See Fig. 4)

That is the list of pages we wanted but they are alfabetically sorted.
It will be more helpfull sorting a list sorted on the page views:

5. Go to https://tools.wmflabs.org/massviews/ (See Fig. 5)

Fig. 6. Those wikipedia pages on economy are not in the Irish Wikipedia! Looking for wikipedia missing pages. (6th and final step. )

6. Set the source as "PageFile" with the number you got in the 4th step. "Send". And you get the list: (See Fig. 6)
Those wikipedia pages are not in the Irish Wikipedia!
