This is a stub template. A brief explanation of these templates follows; for full details please consult TME:Stub.

What is a stub?[edit source]

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

How is a stub identified?[edit source]

  • If possible, try to find the most appropriate stub template for the article. A full list can be found at TME:WikiProject Stub sorting/List of stubs.
  • Two or more different stub templates may be used, if necessary, though no more than four should be used on any article.
  • Place a stub template at the very end of the article, after the "External links" section, any navigation templates, and the category tags. As usual, templates are added by including their name inside double braces, e.g. {{stub}}.

Further information[edit source]

Further information can be found at:

New stub templates and categories (collectively "stub types") should not be created without prior proposal at TME:WikiProject Stub sorting/Proposals. This allows for the proper coordination of all stub types across The Multilingual Encyclopedia, and for the checking of any new stub type for possible problems prior to its creation.
