A '''stub''' is an article or section on '''OrthodoxWiki''' which is underdeveloped. It often consists of only one paragraphor sentence, a rough outline, or incomplete information. A stub is '''not''' simply an article or section that could use more material added to it (use the [[Template:Incomplete|Incomplete]] tag for that). A stub is something that is inherently lacking and doesn't tell the reader the most basic information about the subject.
==About Stubs=====Finding and marking a stub===If you find a stub on OrthodoxWiki, you can either fix it by '''[[Help:Editing|editing]]''' it to include more material or at least calling it to others' attention, marking it as a stub by including the '''<nowiki>{{stub}}</nowiki>''' tag in the article or section body and including '''<nowiki>[[Category:Stubs]]</nowiki>''' at the bottom of the article text.
When you put the '''<nowiki>{{stub}}</nowiki>''' tag in the article and save it, you'll see the following message included:
{{stub}}
===Fixing a stub===
You can fix a stub by '''[[Help:Editing|editing]]''' it to include more thorough material, thus developing it to a full-fledged article. If you fix a stub (and thus bring it into the realm of non-stubness), please be sure to remove the '''<nowiki>{{stub}}</nowiki>''' tag.

An article which consists only of a set of links may qualify as a stub, but it more likely simply needs to be included in the appropriate category by including '''<nowiki>[[Category:Links]]</nowiki>''' at the bottom of the article text.
