Stub

From WikiMD free wellness and medical encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A stub is a very short article, generally of one paragraph or less. Most stubs fail to cover all but the most trivial subject completely.

A sub-stub is, informally, an extremely short article, shorter even than most dictionary entries. The term implies the information in the stub is insufficient or hard to interpret, e.g., "An airplane is a flying machine with wings," or "Douglas Adams was a famous author who has died in the United States". While stubs are legitimate and useful articles, sub-stubs can be considered otherwise, as they are sometimes confusing or misleading. They may therefore be deleted, depending on the situation.

The wikimd software can display links to stubs differently if you set the Threshold for stub display higher than 0, for example 200 to mark articles shorter than 200 characters. This makes it easy to find/fix (add content to) a stub. See Special:Preferences to set your threshold, or Preferences for help on this and other settings.
