User:Magioladitis/AWB and orphans
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The feature is part of Auto-tagger.
According to the initial definition:
- Orphans are articles with less than 3 incoming links (i.e. 0, 1 or 2) to themselves or their redirects.
- Despite the strict definition, current consensus on orphans implies that pages should be tagged with orphan tag only if they have no incoming links (i.e. 0 instead of < 3).
- This consensus doesn't imply that articles with 1 or 2 incoming links that are tagged as orphans, should be untagged.
- Orphan tagging is optimised for en and ru wikis.
- In ru.wiki adds linkless to isolated articles if article has 0 incoming links.
- It's strongly recommended to enable "Restrict orphan tagging to linkless pages" on the options menu. This reflects current consensus in en.wiki and it's always the case for other wikis.
- This restriction is enabled by default.
- Auto-tagger won't tags redirects, soft redirects, dabs, set index articles and it will untag them if they are tagged already.
- Auto-tagger excludes from point counting redirects and non-mainspace pages.
- Auto-tagger will tag as an orphan an article that has 0 (or less than 3 if you disable the restriction) incoming links to itself or its redirects that there are not redirects.
- Incoming links from disambiguation pages aren't excluded from page counting. This results in pages with many links from dab pages to be untagged.
- This doesn't seem to be a big issue though since the definition is quite loose at the moment.
- Tagging is 100% accurate. If an article is tagged as an orphan, it is an orphan.
- Untagging isn't, at least not with the strict definition. More articles can be orphans. This is the case that some of the incoming links are dab pages.
