A stub is a short article which contains a few sentences of text, which is too short to provide extended coverage of a subject, but not so short as to provide no useful information. Bigger articles are usually not considered stubs, even if they lack style, format or copy editing. Such articles should usually be tagged with a cleanup template instead of a stub template.

Marking Stubs

After writing a short article or finding an unmarked stub article, you should insert a stub template. Use {{editor-stub}} for stub articles related to UnrealEd features, {{api-stub}} for stub articles about class and interface descriptions, and {{stub}} for other stub articles.

Removing Stub Status

Once an article has been properly expanded, any editor can remove its stub template. No administrator action or formal permission is required.

Locating Stubs

  • Category:Stubs contains all articles explicitly marked as stubs
  • Short pages lists articles sorted by length, shortest articles first
  • Setting the threshold for "stub link" formatting on the Misc tab of your preferences to a small number displays links to pages with less than that number of characters in a special color
