Who takes these statistics, how? Have there in fact
The stats I found were at:
Paolo Castellina complained to
me that a great number of his
articles were missing, I took it
to imply that these were deleted.
I tried to explain that witht he
software and domain name changes
something may have been lost and
I'd try to inquire about it.
Note that under the old software, administrative
deletion of pages
would have left no trace and been irreversible.
Ay ay ay... well checking the dates on the
stats page the sudden decrease took place
before the change to MediaWiki software
and the Wiki was still under UseMod software.

You've already been given it, no?
Ok, if so, is there a place to check
deletions? I got the uneasy feeling that
someone or something a bot perhaps
had gone berserk and started deleting
pages, so I was getting panicky about
it. How does one check for deletions
in the new software?
Again thanks so much for your help
in all of this Brion, and kudos on the
work you've accomplished in getting
the other than English wikis up and
running on the new software, after the
initial shock that the capitalization had
made a lot of pages invisible to the links,
and many of us started changing titles
over there have now been good comments
about the new software. Overall it seems
like the site is quite speedy, and this may
perhaps only be a reflection of how many
are away for the holidays and not editing,
but things are flying... this is a good thing!
With best regards always,
