User:PrimeBOT/Parameter removal records

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The following is a list of edit requests performed during the execution of Task 30, which removes invalid parameters and/or performs template mergers on high-transclusion templates.

    Bot runs will be added in reverse chronological order in their respective category.

    Criteria for this bot run[edit]

    1. Template must have 1000+ pages in a "bad parameters" category and/or be a template merger with 1000+ transclusions
    2. Discussion must be present and consensus agrees that a bot run will be necessary to remove the bad params
    3. A list will be created for the parameters to be removed/changed/updated/etc

    Future tasks[edit]
