Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template aims to track various maintenance backlogs across Wikipedia. It is split up into several categories:

Please note that some of the counts may be inaccurate. If a count is inaccurate, try purging the relevant template. Some cleanup types don't have tracking categories, an example is Category:NPOV disputes. The database index may also be out of date due to prior bugs, see bug 18488.

These templates use expensive parser functions. Using this template on pages with lots of these may cause something to break.
