From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
Our list of unwatched pages (sorry, admin only!) is woefully flooded. Around 7000 pages in the main namespace, and 32440 (source: Sannse) total unwatched pages. Ouch! If every admin adopted 750 pages we'd soon have that list licked to managable sizes! What do ya say? .......... Ok, joking. I am however pondering a way to put up a short list of some unwatched pages on a semi-regular schedule (obviously not the whole list, the list must be admin-only to prevent vandals targeting unwatched pages) for regular (semi-trusted) users to adopt. They can sign their name below the entry and after verifying it is unwatched, an admin can remove the entry. A simple Special:Recentchangeslinked on the whole list would prevent any vandals using it as a hit-list.
As for naming: Uncyclopedia:Big_Bother (a pun on "big brother", not the 1984 kind, but the "be a big brother or big sister" kind) or Uncyclopedia:Watchmatchmaker or Uncyclopedia:Atchmaker (ambiguous as to it being 'watch' or 'match'). Thoughts? --Splaka 09:02, 17 April 2006 (UTC)
- Could we generate a list of all orphaned, dead-end unwatched pages? I think such pages could probably do with a nuking. -- 18:33, 17 April 2006 (UTC)
Humm....perhaps Special:Lonelypages? I go through those and whack them in spades when I have a lot of free time. It's a lot like work, but needs to be done. We're up to 1100+ orphans, so it's nearing time again.... 23:40, 17 April 2006 (UTC)
- Evil! But should be done periodically. What would be handy also, is to acquire the lists (to say 2000 places) off of Special:Mostlinked and Special:Mostrevisions, and then filter them with Special:Unwatchedpages. Then we would have two lists of pages that most should be watched. --Splaka 03:28, 18 April 2006 (UTC)
- Well, I've gone and done it, it was a bitch though, 8000+ unwatched pages in the main namespace. I took the top 1000 of each of those lists and parsed it with all 8000+, resulting in 3 top 10 lists: Uncyclopedia:Watchmaker. Feel free to spruse it up or even adopt some. --Splaka 07:32, 18 April 2006 (UTC)
