This is a maintenance category, used for maintenance of the Wikipedia project. It is not part of the encyclopedia and contains non-article pages, or groups articles by status rather than subject. Do not include this category in content categories.
This is a tracking category. It builds and maintains a list of pages primarily for the sake of the list itself. They are not part of the encyclopedia's categorization scheme.
Administrators: Please do not delete this category even if it is empty! This category may be empty occasionally or even most of the time.
This category is populated automatically by the MediaWiki software, its name being at MediaWiki:Post-expand-template-inclusion-category. It contains pages which exceed one of the template limits, other than the limits on expensive parser functions and template argument size. These pages should be simplified by removing or simplifying calls to templates, or they will not render properly. Note that non-rendered expansions still count towards the limit. See Help:Template#Template limits. This category is sorted by page name and ignores the namespace. This search only displays articles in the category (may include recently removed articles).
Maintenance / clearing pages from this category
Some pages should be cleared with care:
Other pages need to be handled on a case-by-case basis.
Obviously anyone has to be nice and careful. But, in any case, the best person to maintain a page... is the owner of the page, or the owner of the bot that created the page. When someone else has to do the job instead of the owner, the said owner can simply revert and do the job by herself when she is not satisfied by the result.
