The {{stub}} template places articles in Category:stubs.
This category should be routinely cleared to prevent a backlog.
There are currently 243 articles in this category (update).

Vetting of unlisted templates[edit]

The conversion of templates to {{asbox}} has uncovered over 7000 stub templates which are not listed on the official stub lists. These need to be checked: if they are approved, they should be listed; if they are not, then need to be assessed at either WP:WSS/D or WP:SFD. Many of the unapproved ones will need renaming to conform with stub standards. A full list of these 7000+ templates can be found at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Templates to vet and its subpages.

Categories created, to be populated[edit]

Newly created[edit]

See Category:Underpopulated stub categories ({{popstub}})

In need of re-sorting[edit]

See Category:Overpopulated stub categories ({{verylargestub}})

Templates and categories approved, yet to be created[edit]

Incorrect stubbing[edit]

Manually populated categories[edit]

There is a list of stubs which have been manually added to stub categories (rather than by use of a stub template) at Wikipedia:Database reports/Stubs included directly in stub categories. All of these articles should have the category removed, and (unless the article is not a stub) replaced by a stub template. If it appears as if the same editors are repeatedly adding categories manually, the template {{uw-directcat}} can be used to inform them how stubs should be categorised.

Redlinked templates[edit]

There is a list of articles with redlinked stub templates at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/missing stubs. In many cases the templates that should be on the articles have been added to the list. Some of these redlinks are simply spelling mistakes, others are vandalism, but most involve templates which are too finely-grained to yet exist. All of these need correcting to existing stub types (once one is done, please remove it from the list, either through striking it out or (if a whole section is completed) by removing the section. Once the page is empty, please leave a note on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Stub sorting/missing stubs for a new list to be generated.

Overlong "stub" pages[edit]

Wikipedia:Database reports/Long stubs lists pages that are marked as stubs, but seem excessively long for stubs. These should be reviewed for possible migration to a higher class. If it is determined that these are no longer stubs, please remove the stub templates, and, where applicable, update the article talk pages to indicate the new class for the article.

Other reports[edit]

Instructions for rebuilding these reports are found at the bottom of each page.

Undersized stub categories[edit]

There are several hundred undersized stub categories. Some of these are newly created and need populating, others might be brought up to the 60-stub threshold level by sorting stubs into them. Severely undersized categories which currently have no chance of reaching the threshold may need to be taken to WP:SFD for deletion/upmerging. Undersized stub categories are listed in Category:Underpopulated stub categories.

Wikipedia:Database reports/Unused stub templates has a similar list of stub templates that have been built, but which have no articles using the template. You can help by finding stub articles to add these templates to. If the templates are not needed, perhaps because the topic is already covered by another stub template, consider listing the template on WP:SFD for deletion.
