- Can anyone answer this question? It's hard to fix the issue when it doesn't seem to be documented. Thanks! GoingBatty (talk) 02:10, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
WP:VPT is a better venue for this question. --Mdann52talk to me! 10:02, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
Maybe VPT is a more likely place to get an answer but it isn't a better place. Wikipedia works on a page/talk page model. This is a specific question about this category. It's answer will be relavent for as long as the category exists. The answer deserves to be here, not at the VP where it will soon be archived. The people creating these categories should be putting some effort into documenting these categories and actually caring about them once they are created.

Same problem here. Many thanks. Llywelyn2000 (talk) 23:01, 2 October 2014 (UTC)
There is some more info on the category page now. I had the same problem and raised the issue at Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)#Category:Articles_which_use_infobox_templates_with_no_data_rows_-_how_does_an_article_get_into_this_category.3F. Robevans123 (talk) 23:17, 2 October 2014 (UTC)
Llywelyn2000's page is on the Welsh Wikipedia, not the English one; the underlying template is cy:Nodyn:Infobox. I'd assume something went wrong when that template was moved over from the English Wikipedia. The code that adds the category is at the very bottom of that template. This is not an issue with the category but with understanding a specific template. Huon (talk) 23:43, 2 October 2014 (UTC)
@Llywelyn2000: If you make this change to cy:Nodyn:Infobox building, it should fix it. --Redrose64 (talk) 08:26, 3 October 2014 (UTC)
That, my Red, Red Rose, completely resolved the issue, and tonight I shall sleep like a thousand logs! Many thanks. Llywelyn2000 (talk) 08:48, 3 October 2014 (UTC)
