GTA

(Redirected to Category:Stubs article)

From Grand Theft Wiki

A stub is an article that contains a minimal amount of information. Stubs desperately require some attention, and need our users to expand these stubs into more detailed and comprehensive articles on the subject matter.

To mark an article as a stub, simply add {{stub}} at the bottom. Please only use this template if the article has very little useful information and needs a lot more information.

In the future we may categorize our stubs (eg Vice City Stubs, Vehicle Stubs), but we currently only have one category for all the stubs on this website.

From Halopedia, the Halo Wiki

Stubs are short and insufficient articles. However, just because an article is short doesn't necessarily mean it's a stub. Some articles are just short because of a lack of information available on the subject. If an article has the potential for more content and doesn't have all information pertinent to subject it is a stub and should be expanded.

 

  • If a decision has been made in the talk page then merge these articles
  • If a decision has been made in the talk page and you have the authority please delete these articles.
  • So you think you know everything about the Halo universe? Well then you can help clear up Heretic lies from cannon truth! These articles need proof!! Please add sources or confirm that they are in fact lies told by the unbelievers!
  • These articles located here need to be created! Anyone with the knowledge please kill the RED and create these articles.
  • Halo 2 walkthroughs and transcripts need to be done for virtually every level.
  • These articles need links added because they're Dead End articles
  • Check and fix any double redirects here, and also fix any broken redirects that exist here
  • If you know a lot about game types someone needs to go over and merge, delete, and add content to all these Game Stubs.
  • These articles need Images! If you have just the shot replace the template with the image!
  • Add labels to all the image files! I know it seems like a hopeless task, but if we all pitch in...

Lostpedia

Up to date as of February 07, 2010
(Redirected to Lostpedia:Stub article)

From Lostpedia

A stub is an article that is short and lacking information. In general, it must be long enough to at least define the article's title, which generally means 3 to 10 short sentences. Note that a longer article on a complicated topic may be a stub; conversely, a short article on a topic of narrow scope may not be a stub.

Another way to define a stub is an article so incomplete that an editor who knows little or nothing about the topic could improve its content after a superficial Web search or a few minutes in a reference library. An article that can be improved by only a rather knowledgeable editor, or after significant research, may not be a stub.

Note that a stub is not just a short article. A stub is a short article where more information can be added.

Marking stubs

  • {{Stub}}: place this on articles where little info is added and you know there's more to be added. (View stubs)
    • It's possible to view every article as a stub when a show like LOST is the subject; use discretion. If it's four pages long, it's not a stub any more!

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Shortcuts:

Stubs are RuneScape Wiki articles that have insufficient information. Stubs are generally one paragraph or less which give little or no information. However, this does not mean the stub is not a legitimate article; it just needs to be expanded.

Contents

Information

When creating or editing a stub, its goal is to become a full, informative article. However, some articles may not require much information, though they still must cover as much space.

Don't assume that additions and improvements will immediately pour in of themselves. The best way to draw the attention of others into contributing a stub is by editing it yourself. Even if you do a small edit it will appear on the recent changes page, where many seasoned users love to follow the action, and jump in where there's work being done.

Naming a stub

When you've created or found a small article, simply edit the page and add the {{stub}} template. When you've completed this and saved the page, the article will then include this box:

Stub This article is a stub. You can help by expanding it.
This article is a stub. You can help by expanding it.

This will show that the article is stub. When people view the page, they will see this and hopefully try to expand the article.

Editing a stub

When editing a stub, there are a few things you should remember.

  1. Follow the standards of correct English. Write in full, clear sentences.
  2. Give a clear, precise definition or description of your topic.
  3. Avoid fallacies of definition. For articles about non-concepts (e.g., about kingdoms and cities), definitions are impossible, so begin with a clear, helpful, informative description of the subject. State what cities are in the kingdom, what it is known for, basic details of popular places, etc. A good definition or description may encourage potential contributors by suggesting the limits of the article, indirectly summarising what needs to be done. For example, Salvador Allende was the President of Chile from 1970 until 1973 would be a good description.
  4. Make sure any relevant linkable words have been linked.
  5. Submit the article with a Summary Comment that will attract the attention of others to your stub. If nothing else, copy and paste the stub itself into the Summary field when you save your article.
  6. Feel some responsibility for your stub article. There is a fine line between helping by outlining what needs to be done, and being annoying by not doing anything yourself. If nobody contributes to your stub for a few weeks, roll up your sleeves and expand it yourself. Take the fact that nobody has contributed as a hint that your stub might not have been that great, and if nothing else, try to make it a better stub.

Admittedly, these guidelines are in some sense irrelevant because no matter what you do, someone will probably fix the article for you. That's the beauty of a wiki! But if you want to contribute something positive, and you cannot write the whole article yourself, then at least let your contribution be an invitation to participation.

ST Expanded

Up to date as of February 07, 2010
(Redirected to Star Trek Expanded Universe:Stubs article)

The Star Trek Expanded Universe Database is for fanon and related content. See Memory-Alpha.org for the canon Star Trek wiki.

For a listing of "stub" articles, see: Category:Stubs.
This page is considered an official policy on Star Trek Expanded Universe. It has wide acceptance among editors and is considered a standard that everyone should follow. Except for minor edits, please make use of the discussion page to propose changes to this policy.

Contents

Overview

A stub is an article which is too short to provide encyclopedic coverage of the subject, but not so short as to provide no useful information. To qualify as a stub an article must at least define the meaning of the article title. Often that means three to ten short sentences, but less text may be sufficient to qualify as a stub for articles on narrow topics, and complicated topics with more than ten sentences may still be stubs. However, in reality, many articles labeled as stubs are much longer. You can help by removing inappropriate stub notices.

Sizeable articles which lack wikification or copy editing are generally not considered stubs, and normal procedure is to add a cleanup tag instead. Small articles with little information may be nominated for deletion or merged into another relevant article.

While a 'definition' may be enough to qualify as a stub, a wiki is not a dictionary. If little or no information beyond the definition is ever likely to be included the entry should be merged or deleted.

Categorizing stubs

After writing or finding the short article, the editor should insert what is called a stub template, which makes it possible for the article to be flagged as a stub. By convention, stub templates should be placed near the bottom of the article.

Stub templates

Inserting {{stub}} to an article marks it as a general stub. If possible, add a more specific stub template by choosing one of those listed at Category:stub templates.

Removing stub status

Once a stub has been properly expanded and becomes an article rather than just a stub, you or any editor may remove the stub tag from it. No administrator action or formal permission is needed. Be bold in removing stub tags which are clearly no longer applicable.

See Category:Stubs for a listing of stub articles.
