This comment is invalid XHTML+MathML+SVG; displaying source. <div> <p>I didn't realize that pages containing redirected links show up on "Wanted Pages" as a wanted page. So all the redirected links I've added are showing up as "Wanted Pages".</p> <p>Is this desirable? This pretty much makes the Wanted Pages meaningless because it is impossible to sift through which pages are truly wanted and which are redirects.</p> <p>I was going to bring this up with Jacques as a "bug", but wanted to run it by you guys first.</p> <p>I think the "Wanted Pages" should reflect truly pages that do not exist and are "Wanted" as opposed to merely pages with links that are redirected to other pages. For example, <a href="http://ncatlab.org/nlab/list">All Pages</a> currently says</p> <blockquote> (infinity,1)-categories wanted by simplicial localization </blockquote> <p>But <a href="http://ncatlab.org/nlab/show/simplicial+localization">simplicial localization</a> does not "want" <a href="http://ncatlab.org/nlab/show/%28infinity%2C1%29-categories">(infinity,1)-categories</a>. Rather, the link to <a href="http://ncatlab.org/nlab/show/%28infinity%2C1%29-categories">(infinity,1)-categories</a> on <a href="http://ncatlab.org/nlab/show/simplicial+localization">simplicial localization</a> is redirected to <a href="http://ncatlab.org/nlab/show/%28infinity%2C1%29-category">(infinity,1)-category</a>.</p> <p>In other words, <a href="http://ncatlab.org/nlab/show/simplicial+localization">simplicial localization</a> is complete and does not "want" anything.</p> <p>In my opinion, "Wanted Pages" should be a reference to pages that need attention in some form or other. Pages with redirected links do not need attention.</p> </div>

PS: I guess it is easy to sift through "Wanted Pages" to find pages needing attention by focusing on the greyed-out links. But still, if it is easy to fix, it might make sense to only include non-redirected links in the "Wanted Pages".

I've already mentioned it to Jacques. (But not so much as a bug as a missing feature.) It's part of a family of bugs, actually, which also includes:

• Links to other webs show up as wanted pages.
• Pages that are orphans except for links to redirects show up as orphans (although really they're not).
• Links to redirects don't show up in the list on the bottom of the page.
