A BRWiki article is defined as a page that has encyclopedic or almanac-like information about the Birthright Campaign Setting on it ("almanac-like" being lists, timelines, tables or charts).
See Allpages for a list of all BRWiki articles (and some non-articles; see below).
An "article" does not include any pages in any of the specified namespaces that are used for particular purposes, such as:
[list][*] the BRWiki namespace for material about meta subjects related to BRWiki (example, Policy);
[*] the talk namespaces for discussing what the content of pages should be. Talk pages are redirected to the forum
[*] the special namespace, whose pages are created by the software on demand (see Specialpages);
[*] the user namespace for pages that are used by individual BRWiki writers (example, Kgauck).
[*] the image namespace which is used for describing and attributing images (example, Humans.png)
[*] the D20 namespace which is used for the D20 System Reference Document (example, System_Reference_Document)
[*] the BRCS namespace which is used for D20 Birthright Campaign Setting (example, Main_Page)
But not all pages in the article namespace are considered to be articles; the most notable exceptions are:
[list][*] the Main Page;
[*] thousands of "stub" pages that may not be considered real articles yet;
[*] thousands of disambiguation pages which are used to resolve naming conflicts;
[*] thousands of "redirect" pages which are used to re-route one page to another page;
The automatic definition used by the software at Statistics is: any page that is in the article namespace, is not a redirect page and contains at least one wiki link. The statistics software currently has no method of detecting disambiguation pages, however; nor does it disregard Stubs and Stublists (lists templates with little or no content).
See Policy/Naming to learn how we title articles and protected pages for a list of pages that have been made read-only to non-BRWiki Administrators.
