During the transition to this site from Wikia, we had lost over 2,000 articles in the process. We need to bring them back somehow. GiratinaOriginForme.png |Si Plebius Dato' Joe ang Man on Fire CUN|IC Kill Don't be fooled. I'm an Aussie too. | 04:14, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

Do you know which articles are missing? Any information would help us in recovering them. Legoktm (talk) 04:21, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
It looks like the articles are present judging by the total pagecount; a lot of them just aren't currently listed as articles because they aren't in content namespaces because we forgot to tell the MediaWiki that HEY THESE ARE CONTENT TOO! Things like Undictionary and whatnot, you know? Except I'm not even sure what all they should be at the moment... -— Lyrithya 04:55, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
The history of That's what she said seems to be gone. The deletion log is still there, but there's nothing to restore. Sir SockySexy girls.jpg Mermaid with dolphin.jpg Tired Marilyn Monroe.jpg (talk) (stalk)Magnemite.gif Icons-flag-be.png GUN SotM UotM PMotM UotYPotM WotM 04:59, 17 January 2013
Oh. Looks like the deleted revision grabber failed again. Huh. -— Lyrithya 08:18, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
So apparently everything after Lt: got skipped. Because Lt: is an interwiki. And interwikis, on the version of MediaWiki Wikia is on, break things. Yaaaay. -— Lyrithya 18:56, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
They're downloading now. -— Lyrithya 18:58, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

So...

...just 28,000 more to go? Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:05, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

Comparison:

Uncyclopedia.wikia.com has 30,079 articles. Uncyclopedia.co has 29,332 articles. Now it is around 1000 articles less. We need to recover the articles lost during the transition, and I am sure that you are doing it. And on an unrelated note we did not show up on Google search results.

We won't up in the search engines for a while. You can help by linking to the site on all your social media accounts. ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Proudly bogan 06:48, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
Look at the total pagecount, not the the number of articles - articles is just the count of non-redirect pages in the content namespaces, and we're still working out the bugs with the redirects table, so it probably won't give an entirely accurate result for awhile yet. And what Frosty said about the other thing. -— Lyrithya 07:48, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
Well that's a change. GiratinaOriginForme.png |Si Plebius Dato' Joe ang Man on Fire CUN|IC Kill Don't be fooled. I'm an Aussie too. | 03:56, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
