This page seems a little useless for this project, as unless the relative sizes of the various Wikipedias change dramatically there are always going to be well over a million articles here without interwiki links. It's certainly not a lot of use to editors here as the thousand-page limit doesn't even get you as far as "A" Perhaps it could be disabled, to improve performance? – Gurch 18:05, 25 May 2007 (UTC)
This page has proved terribly useful in the Greek language version of wikipedia. It has helped to link some hundreds of articles in a few days, boosting the Project Interwiki which is underway there since last year. However, the limit on the number of pages is a big problem. Right now the limit number in Greek wikipedia is 5000 and we can see probably 60% of the articles without interwikis since the total size is around 23-24.000 pages. I believe that it is worth saving a dump with all articles without interwikis every day. Then, this will feature will be fully useful. Please revise the limit of number of articles. --FocalPoint 16:56, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
- Agreed, I've been having similar problem on Croatian wiki, I could also use version that lists categories. --Ivan Bajlo 19:15, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
- Just stumbled upon this and it seems pretty useful, though more so for other language versions than English (due to the large number of articles unlikely to have foreign-language versions). To fix the issue of the thousand-page limit, would it be possible to make it like Special:Allpages and accept a slash to start at a certain point? Rigadoun (talk) 01:16, 9 August 2007 (UTC)
I wonder why nobody has dealt with this problem from the technical side. I imagine it should be possible to tweak the software and let it build this list starting a certain alphabetical letter or letters. This would be of so much help in finding articles without iw links, especially in smaller Wikipedias.--Morel (talk) 03:21, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
