What is a stub?

A stub is an article that has a significant lack of information pertaining to a topic. There is no specific size to qualify an article as a stub, but generally an article that is missing a lot of information on its subject is considered to be a stub. Please keep in mind that short articles are not necessarily stubs, especially if they contain all information possible.

Marking an article as a stub

If you are writing a new article and would like to classify it as a stub for others to expand on, you must include the stub template somewhere in the article, preferably at the bottom. To include the stub template, type {{stub}}.

Removing stub status from an article

If you've added enough information to a stub to remove its stub status or if you feel that a short article has been unnecessarily given the stub status, all you have to do is delete the {{stub}} tag that is placed in the article.
