Bug ID: 61536
           Summary: Remove "|other_fields=" from default {{Information}}
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: UploadWizard
       Web browser: ---
   Mobile Platform: ---

Parameters "other_fields" and "other_fields_1" are mostly meant for use by
other templates customizing {{Information}} template but they sometimes could
be used by experienced users when combined with {{Information_field}} template.
The field is a hack meant for injecting HTML code into the table created by
{{information}} template, in order to add additional fields.  The field should
not be included unless is needed. Otherwise unexperienced users use the field
in a manner not intended and break the HTML structure of the page. In the past
that was resulting in pages which rendered correctly in some browsers and
incorrectly in others.

The default upload by the UploadWizard should not include "|other_fields="
field. The earlier upload tools did not add nor does the recommended empty
template on the {{Information}} template documentation.
