Wikinews:Pages with broken file links

MediaWiki software provides an automated tracking category, pages with broken file links, in order to track any images where the file has either been removed or never existed (for example, due to a typo in the file name). Wikinews considers images to be content as discussed by our archive policy; as such, it uses {{missing image}} to mark those that have been removed from Commons. This has the effect that the tracking category does not empty out even if these images are dealt with.

As a partial solution, this page lists up to 500 pages which are in the broken file links category but not in the tracking category pages with missing-image template calls, which is automatically applied to pages using {{missing image}}.

This is not a complete solution, as it will not list any page where one missing image has been dealt with but since then another image has become missing. Nonetheless, it should greatly improve our ability to track these issues.
