It is very confusing that two names are used for the same thing:
$ w3m -dump ...Special:Specialpages|egrep -i file\|image
* File list
* Gallery of new files
* Most linked to images
* Uncategorized images
* Unused files
* Upload file
And when one clicks on the "file" items, one sees mention only of
Therefore there are parts of Special:Specialpages older than the pages that
it links to, which all nowadays talk about "images", not "files".
Indeed, this trend has crept into Special:Specialpages itself, but the
process is not complete.
Therefore, please complete it. Don't use two names to talk about the
same thing. Change all references to "files" to "images" on
Special:Specialpages, as apparently the trend is these days.
Or maybe I'm confusing audio and visual (image) files. But if so, one
does not see an audio selection, just "images".
We're (slowly) retiring "images" in favor of "files".
