{{PD-because}} is an occasionally used PD template. Many of its uses are better served with a specific tag (sometimes one needs to be created), and many of the remaining uses are invalid and the files need to be deleted.

  • Help:VisualFileChange.js - a very powerful tool, to be used with caution. Can do text replacements ("custom replace" option) to execute the review process on many similar files at once.

Identifying the most-used files[edit]
