Pages with too many expensive parser function callsexpensive-parserfunction-categoryThe page uses too many expensive parser functions (like #ifexist). See Manual:$wgExpensiveParserFunctionLimit.
Hidden categorieshidden-category-categoryThe category contains __HIDDENCAT__ in its page content, which prevents it from showing up in the category links box on pages by default.
Indexed pagesindex-categoryThe page has a __INDEX__ on it (and is in a namespace where that flag is allowed), and hence is indexed by robots where it normally wouldn't be.
Pages where node count is exceedednode-count-exceeded-categoryThe page exceeds the maximum node count.
Noindexed pagesnoindex-categoryThe page is not indexed by robots because it has the magic word __NOINDEX__ on it and is in a namespace where that flag is allowed.
