Usage

{{Stub category
|article=
|newstub=
|category=
|category type=
|WikiProject=
}}

For example:

{{Stub category
|article=people in Japanese [[football (soccer)]], including football players, managers, coaches, etc.
|newstub=Japan-footy-bio-stub
|category=Japanese footballers
}}

will show:

The |category type= parameter inserts additional text between the phrases "This category is for" and "stub articles relating to ...", so using |category type=biographical will give "This category is for biographical stub articles relating to ...".

There is also an optional parameter |WikiProject= which links to a relevant WikiProject page. For example:

{{Stub category
|article=the [[Commonwealth of Massachusetts]]
|newstub=Massachusetts-stub
|category=Massachusetts
|category type=biographical
|WikiProject=Massachusetts
}}

will show:
