A stub is an article which is unusually short, usually only a few lines. Stubs should be expanded, so that eventually after many edits they can completely cover their topic and fulfill their purpose. When they edit/expand stubs, users are helping Iris Online Wiki to grow. Stubs can be found at Category:Stubs.

What qualifies as a stub?Edit

Stubs have the following characteristics:

  • Consists of only 1 or 2 lines, or a few short paragraphs.
  • Does NOT cover everything about the topic - gives only a brief overview or idea.
  • Can be expanded to cover it's topic.
  • Stubs are always in the main namespace, that is, with no word in front of their title such as "Iris Online Wiki:" or "Category:".

How should stubs be treated?Edit

Apart from being edited to contain more information, all stubs should be tagged with the appropriate stub template at the very top of the page, for example {{Stub/Item}} for stubs which are about an Item. It is best to add stubs to the appropriate sub-category rather than the general stub category, ({{Stub}}) but if there is no stub type that fits the article you wish to tag, either use the general category, or ask an administrator about creating a new stub type.

All the templates for different types of stubs can be found at Category:Templates/Stubs.
