- It's not; if you look at page view statistics, almost no one is actually looking at this article. You may think it is being highly viewed, but that's only because (for some reason) Wikipedia article traffic statistics is erroneously counting calls (?) to index.html as page views.

- Done, but the page wasn't protected, so you could have done it yourself. If you meant to upload the new image in place of the existing image, you should request it on File talk:Www.wikipedia.org screenshot.png. Note that some people might want to keep the old image for historical reference, though. — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 01:30, 14 October 2013 (UTC)
- Noticing that W/index.phpgot tons of hits, I created it as a redirect to this article.
- The redirect was one of many potential spambot targets listed at User:John Reaves/PT, which has cascading protection enabled
- Unknown to me, when a cascade-protected page links to a redirect, cascade protection applies to the redirect's target
- As a result, the entire article was transcluded on John's userpage, and it therefore was fully protected
- Someone notified me of the situation, and the following conversation ensued: message 1, message 2, message 3, and message 4
- I removed the redirect from John's userpage and added full protection directly. This has the safe effect on the redirect but doesn't affect the full article
Erroneous traffic coming here.
Several previous discussion (above) relate to the weirdly massive popularity of this page.
I've just figured it out - and started a discussion on the Village Pump tech section to see if we can get it fixed:
Please join in at: Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)#https:.2F.2Fen.wikipedia.org.2Findex.html
This discussion of 2014 has been moved to https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)/Archive_130#https://en.wikipedia.org/index.html but the issue was never solved. I land at this page from the Chrome App on an Android phone, while Firefox and DuckduckGo bring me to the expected Wikipedia page about the subject I was looking for.. How can this be fixed?

Rename / move to "Web server directory index"
Calling a web server a "webserver" is like calling a train station a "trainstation."
Unlike "web site" vs. "website," there is no apparent trend away from the compound form (two words). Also, anecdotally, drawing on 20+ years as a web server administrator, and as a native English speaker, it just sounds wrong.
There are, however, fully-protected redirects like
Is this a pointless endeavour, or are there automated tools to help with things like this (fixing all the double redirects, for example)? I'll be fine if someone says "don't worry about it, it's too much work for such a trifle," but thought I should ask anyway. --Ernstkm (talk) 16:53, 13 January 2021 (UTC)
