14? I don't think that is a 'significant' number of uses.

I made a wiki page for netball, which had some ~1,000 uses when I made 
the page. Now over 6,000 uses... I have not bothered with the status of 
it .. IIRC left it unstated.
Considering the present state of 'status' I probably won't bother with it.
