Deprecated Parameters

This template has undergone extensive changes during its lifetime. As such, many pages still use parameters that are no longer in use. This section documents those parameters, just so there's less confusion. These parameters should not be used in the future, as they do not do anything.

HoodYN
Deprecated. This used to specify whether or not the neighborhood should be displayed. This is now determined based on the presence of the Hood parameter.
LevelYN
Deprecated. This used to specify whether or not level information should be displayed. This is now determined based on the presence of the Level parameter.
Name
Deprecated. This used to be used to specify the contact's name. It is now obtained via {{PAGENAME}}.
