I'm moving this from my talk page to here. I have the working solution to this, which involves running SQL directly on the Wiki database. It's pretty safe, but I like to be able to have attention on this to make sure I don't break the database.

Just for background, all of these pages were last edited when this wiki has hosted on Wiki (now Fandom), and the user database didn't survive the transition from there to here through the Mediawiki 1.33 upgrade.

Add any new pages you might find to this list. Tjoneslo (talk) 15:30, 3 July 2020 (EDT)

For my benefit, could you clarify the symptom? I looked at Ship Mission and it seemed to be editable (didn't commit but the page, the page it redirected to, and the article it led to on ship types all allowed me to bring up the edit form). I just want to understand what I expect to see not work or not show so that I can recognize these sorts of pages that need to go no this list. 04:43, 30 August 2020 (EDT)
The symptoms were if you looked at the page it would be simply blank. If you tried to edit the page it would show an error in a red box about being unable to find an edit. I just looked through all of these pages, and found they no longer exhibit the symptoms. I applied an update to the wiki on Saturday morning, and that process seems to have addressed the problem.
