Charecteristics of a stub

Not all short articles are stubs. Read the following carefully before adding a stub tag. So, is the intended article...

...incomplete or missing information?
...gramatically incorrect?
...full of spelling errors?
...relied solely off a user related too close to the subject?
...citation-free?

All of these examples could be fixed editing the page yourself, but what if your group meeting starts in two minutes? That’s when you add a stub tag.

Stub tags

Adding a stub tag

To add a stub tag, simply type {{stub| followed by a category that this article is a part of. Finish it off with two closing brackets (}}). Remember, all stub tags should be at the end of the page, after the [[Category: ... ]] tags.

Removing a stub tag

To remove a stub tag, simply remove the {{stub| ... }} code and verify that your article does not meet any of the characteristics listed above.
