Parameter to ignore millennium category[edit]

Can we add a parameter to ignore the millennium category in this template? There's a pretty extensive CFD discussion about places that shouldn't need a red-linked or blue-linked useless millennium category and substituting and removing manually is just hideous. I mean, I could just do it all manually or without tables but I'd like to ask if this template and Template:DisestcatCountryCentury could allow for it to be skipped. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 21:25, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done and documented! Is this [1] easy enough?
Alternatively, or additionally, I could make the millennium category only appear on the century categories if it exists. So, once the millennium category is deleted, the redlink for it would disappear from the bottom of the century category pages. They might need a null edit to make that happen, though. I have a preference for the first way I have done it – so that the millennium category will appear on the century page if the parameter is used. – Fayenatic London 21:59, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
This is good enough. Wikipedia:Database reports/Categories categorized in red-linked categories has plenty more that don't exist, some that should, many that don't. Can the same be done for Template talk:DisestcatCountryCentury? -- Ricky81682 (talk) 22:33, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
