Using {{subst:chc}} will automatically add the year, month and day parameters for this template based on the time when you press Save, so that it is not necessary to manually input them by hand. These date parameters are required to sort the media, so it can be prioritised by time: i.e., it becomes easier to see images that have needed a category check for much longer than others.
