Description Borgx 2006-06-28 10:00:49 UTC
There are templates that got transcluded only on certain time/day/week/year ex:
{{Foo/{{CURRENTDAY}} {{CURRENTMONTHNAMEGEN}}}}. But other than those certain
time, the template became "unusedtemplates". Perhaps there should be a magic
word placed on those templates in order to inform core engine to exclude the
templates from special:unusedtemplates on all time.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2006-06-28 13:46:28 UTC
That sounds pointless. An unused template is an unused template. If it shouldn't
be deleted, don't delete it. The reports we produce are advisory only.
