[edit] Why I restored this

I want to see if I can get this working since GrapeNuts can take advantage of the Special:Disambiguations page in doing some routine maintenance. If I can't get it working I'll delete this again. — wikisig.gif Joey (talk·edits) 20:41, 19 Sep 2005 (UTC)

I read somewhere that this keeps disambig pages from showing up on Special:Lonelypages. Can anyone confirm that our disambig pages were showing up there until I restored this yesterday? I've removed one of the disambig links temporarily to see if it starts showing up in Lonelypages again. We'll see. — wikisig.gif Joey (talk·edits) 17:15, 20 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Heh, never mind. Of course this keeps pages from showing up on Lonelypages because linking to them would make them no longer lonely. :) Well, that's at least one benefit to having this page. Anyone agree? I'm still working out exactly how Special:Disambiguations works. — wikisig.gif Joey (talk·edits) 17:18, 20 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Some of the links were outdated, so I removed some and added others. Special:Disambiguations doesn't have any pages listed there, isn't there a way to get that page working how it should, so we don't need to manually search for them? Thunderbird 05:10, 13 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Delete

All of this can be found in Category:Disambiguation, plus this list isn't even complete. I say we should delete this or redirect it to Category:Disambiguation. Homestar-Winner (talk) 18:39, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

If you noticed in the discussion above, the reason this page exists is to keep the pages listed here from showing up in Special:Lonelypages as they should not be considered lonely pages wand would clutter the special page. Even last month (Happy New Year) I updated this list. The lonely pages left are either pending discussion articles or little-known articles that can be examined and/or linked from other articles. If the need for this page no longer met, then I think it would be more prudent for the administration to note it. --Stux 06:45, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Delete, Part 2

What Homestar-Winner said in the above discussion. Plus, the fact that no other Wiki has such a page. RickTommy (edits) 03:45, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

See Stux's reply above. Also, why does it matter that no other Wiki has this page? The HRWiki isn't the same as every other Wiki. I say keep. hegtcX1.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 06:28, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
This is here for the technical reasons listed above and in light of that, I cannot imagine that this is going to be deleted any time soon. I am therefore closing this discussion and removing the tbd. — Defender1031*Talk 07:05, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
I get that. What I don't get is why specifically this Wiki cares about that issue. RickTommy (edits) 10:18, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
Whereas I wonder why it is that other wikis DON'T care about this issue. Bottom line: we don't care what other wikis do. If something makes sense to do on this wiki, we'll do it even if others don't and if something doesn't make sense to do on this wiki, we won't do it even if others do. — Defender1031*Talk 10:35, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
