Almost every article in Wikipedia could do with some expansion - the aim of Wikipedia is to have every article at Featured or Good status. This page was intended for listing those articles of any length for which there is a specific request or longer (non-stub) articles which are still embarrassingly short or insufficient for an encyclopedia of the stature to which Wikipedia aspires.

Articles listed here:

  • Stubs - Articles that are very short. These should be tagged with {{stub}}, or a topic-specific stub tag. Since stubs by definition are tagged as being too short for their subject, the use of the {{expand}} tag on stubs should always be accompanied by a detailed explanation of what needs to be done.
  • Longer articles that still need expansion. Be sure to tag these {{expand}} when you nominate them.
  • Sections in particular need of expansion within an article may be tagged with {{expandsection}}.

Articles that wouldn't have been here:

For all other requests see Wikipedia:Requests

Urgent[edit]

For the most urgently needed article expansions, it may make sense in addition to listing the article here to find the project page of an appropriate Wikipedia:WikiProject or ask for help from a particular editor who has made contributions in that field before.

Archive[edit]

The list of articles needing expansion has been split off for archival purposes and to prevent further additions. Please do not add new articles to it.
