New Articles: history available?

Even though I try to check IMFDB for new articles (esp. movies) on a daily basis, I am sometimes unable to do so and a few days may go by. Normally this is no problem, but in the case that somebody has created 8 new actor pages for one single movie, I miss out on recently created new articles because 8 is the maximum quantity of entries being displayed on this page. Would there be a way that I can check not just the last 8 entries, but say the entries created in the last week or so? Thanks for your suggestion, PeeWee055 (talk) 12:39, 26 September 2013 (EDT)

Try going to Recent Changes then. It's much more extensive. --Funkychinaman (talk) 12:43, 26 September 2013 (EDT)
I agree, 'Recent Changes' is much more in-depth in terms of history, you can scroll for miles on it, even just for the one day. On the flip side, it also sometimes gets newer edits that aren't updated yet on Latest. I check it out concurrently with the 'Latest Changes' page, which I only consider more as a quick reference.

Thanks guys, this is much appreciated. Take care, PeeWee055 (talk) 03:20, 27 September 2013 (EDT)
If it is new pages you are looking for, Special:NewPages is the place you can go if you want a list of new ages where you can go back as far as you want. --commando552 (talk) 15:45, 27 September 2013 (EDT)

Funny you posted this after your remark on the Main Page discussion where both this was already noted and where bunni also stated he knew of these issues and was working through them. StanTheMan (talk) 14:22, 19 June 2017 (EDT)
What remark? I've never posted on the Main Page discussion.Temp89 (talk)
To be fair, he didn't actually post anything on the main page discussion so I would guess that he had not previously seen that topic. --commando552 (talk) 15:44, 19 June 2017 (EDT)
Bah, my mistake - It was another user (Slon95) who didn't sign their post. Thought it was you for a sec - what I get for juggling too many tabs. Apologies. StanTheMan (talk) 02:05, 20 June 2017 (EDT)

can any one get word to the site admin

can any one get word to the site admin and let them know this part needs maintenance --Seekerdude (talk) 17:21, 23 June 2017 (EDT)

There is a topic on the main page stating that it is being worked on, and there is a topic immediately above your's on this page saying the same thing. --commando552 (talk) 17:28, 23 June 2017 (EDT)

good to know that i am in good company --Seekerdude (talk) 17:36, 23 June 2017 (EDT)

Just FYI, for both you and anybody elese who is not aware of this, you can still get all of this information from the Recent Changes page (where you can filter by a number of things including main pages and discussions) and the New Pages page. --commando552 (talk) 17:45, 23 June 2017 (EDT)
Recent Changes is much more informative. --Funkychinaman (talk) 17:49, 23 June 2017 (EDT)
