The action=mobileview API was marked as deprecated at the end of the 2019 . As we refactor code relating to this API we have decided to remove support for its `noimages` parameter which allowed users to request a page with img tags replaced with spans.
Note: The `noimages` parameter also appeared inside the action=parse API  however was a no-op. It will no longer appear on action=parse requests as a result of this change.
For clients wanting to perform img tag removals, this will need to be done by those scripts themselves, the PHP code is provided for your reference 
If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please feel free to follow up on the Phabricator ticket .
