Stubs is a term used for pages with very little content, but not as small as a "test page". Most Wikiversity resources begin as stubs, and later develop into stronger resources as more content is added. However, the majority of stubs do not develop if the original contributor does not make an effort to expand them or attract more contributors.

Finding stubs[edit source]

Newly created stubs will appear in Special:Newpages. Older stubs can be found by looking through Special:UncategorizedPages and/or Special:ShortPages.

When you find a stub[edit source]

  • Add the {{welcome and expand}} template, and make sure to {{welcome}} the author on his or her talk page as well.
  • Check the author's contributions to see if the stub is part of a set of interlinking or related stubs which might need to be re-named as subpages
  • Check "what links here" to see if the page was created to fill a redlink from an already existing project, and re-name if appropriate. Be sure to fix the link on the existing project to aim directly at the sub-page.

Sorting stubs[edit source]

Stubs can be sorted by adding categories and related templates to help direct contributors to the overall structures where material fits into Wikiversity.
