What is a stub?

Main page: Scratch Wiki:Stub

A stub is an article containing only a few sentences of text which is too short to provide encyclopaedic coverage of a subject.

If an article is still short, but long enough not to be a stub, {{expand}} should be used instead.

How is a stub identified?

  • Place a stub template at the very beginning of the article. As usual, templates are added by including their name inside double braces, e.g. {{stub}}.
