|Wikimedia Commons has media related to Gallery pages with broken file links.|
|If this category has 100 items or more, it will report as a backlog. ( )|
|This category is not shown on its member pages unless the appropriate user preference (appearance → show hidden categories) is set.|
|Administrators: Please do not delete this category even if it is empty!|
This category may be empty occasionally or even most of the time.
Here are some tips for assisting with clearing the backlog:
- Check the history of the article. An article may have had a redlinked image added recently in which case it can be rolled back or undone. If detected the MediaWiki software will use a tag in the edit history.
- Use tools like Wiki File Helper to view a file's past history on en.wp and commons to see if deleted.
- Sometimes the hidden category flag is not cleared if images are added that are used by a template. Doing a null edit to the article clears the flag.
- When removing an image from an infobox template be sure to remove the caption as well. There is no guarantee that a replacement image would use the same caption.
- Road shield related images will often add numerous pages to this category. Please request any US shields at WP:USRD/S/R and any shields for the rest of the world at WP:HWY/RM.
- Templates in Category:Templates with missing files can add large numbers of articles to this category – As of 16 March 2019 there were 0 templates with missing files and the current number is 7.
- Last fully cleared: 12th October 2020
