This is a list of stub messages/templates that are applied to stubs. This list is maintained and regularly updated by the Stub sorting WikiProject, with the purpose of keeping a list of templates and categories approved by WP:WSS. Please do not add any other material here, as it will be removed.

Note[edit]

Proposing new stub types[edit]

If you think that a new stub type not currently on this list is needed, please go to Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Proposals and follow the instructions at the top of that page. DO NOT simply create a new stub type and add it to this list; any such stub types are likely to be removed from the list and may be sent to Wikipedia:Stub types for deletion.

Proposing stub types prior to their creation also enables us to determine whether the stub type is needed, whether it clashes with existing stub types or structure, and whether it is correctly named.

Note to administrators deleting stub types[edit]

It is important for consistency, and to avoid confusion on the parts of stub-sorters, that stub types be removed from the stub type list when they are deleted. Please don't leave red links on this page!

A note on stub icons[edit]

Several of the stub categories relate to controversial issues. For this reason, many of the icons have been chosen carefully so as not to cause offense or appear biased. If you wish to change any stub icon, please clear the icon change at both Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Proposals and at any WikiProject associated with the stub category first.

A note on the numbers[edit]

From March 15, 2007 all size counts were removed from this page, as part of an effort to improve accessibility and maintainability. A list of those stub categories with sizes over the largest considered reasonable appears on WikiProject Stub sorting/To do, and complete list of all stub categories, ordered by size, is at WikiProject Stub sorting/Stub type sizes.

Relationships between stub types[edit]

The parent-child relationships shown in the listing below reflect the relationship between categories into which each template places the article to which it is affixed. Multiple parentage is indicated by the presence of small text describing child stub types that appear elsewhere in the listing. This is done to eliminate duplication of stub counts, which inevitably leads to different values for the multiple listings of the same stub type as a result of human error.

Stub categories without a stub template[edit]

There are a few stub categories that are not associated with a stub template or contain only child categories (no articles).

Stub messages and templates[edit]

Generic stub types[edit]

  • Stubs: {{Stub}} (Used when the exact category of stub is not known; often added by bots. Should be replaced quickly with a more accurate stub. You can check which pages use this template by checking here.)

Note:

  • Category:Articles to be expanded contains articles which are no longer stubs, but still need expansion to become encyclopedic. Various cleanup templates include articles in this category, but they should not be placed on articles which are still marked with a stub template - one or the other should be used, but not both.
