Query[edit]

Having gone through a number of the recently proposed templates I have found some for which wikipedia has no stub articles. Do i 1) create upmerged templates that have no articles ready for if someone creates some articles 2)remove from the to create list as they are not needed, 3) leave on the list till some one creates the articles or 4)any other ideas? the templates in question are{{Argentina-botanist-stub}}, , {{Paraguay-botanist-stub}}, {{Uruguay-botanist-stub}}, {{Peru-botanist-stub}}, {{Venezuela-botanist-stub}}, {{Greece-botanist-stub}}, {{Bolivia-scientist-stub}} and {{Paraguay-scientist-stub}}.

Question re:New York counties[edit]

Hi. I was sorting articles using {{NewYork-geo-stub}} by county, and I noticed that two of the template names are differently formed: we have {{WestchesterNY-geo-stub}} and {{SuffolkNY-geo-stub}}, rather than {{WestchesterCountyNY-geo-stub}} and {{SuffolkCountyNY-geo-stub}}. I could just move them, but I don't want to mess up the system. Should I skip these in the sorting until the template names are changed? (Is this the sort of situation where I should just move them?) -GTBacchus(talk) 15:59, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Also, {{AdirondackCountyNY-geo-stub}} doesn't seem to exist. -GTBacchus(talk) 16:24, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

I got a reply from Pegship via email, and I've addressed these concerns now. Cheers. -GTBacchus(talk) 02:03, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Don't forget to sort[edit]

Now that our [usually] beloved Alai and his bot are gone, we have to sort new stub types by hand...and keep up with the old ones. Please check Category:Underpopulated stub categories and the re-sorting and oversized categories to help with maintenance. We have been creating a gazillion template which never get assigned. Very untidy! love, (mommy) Pegship (talk) 17:18, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

"Excess" counts[edit]

I've moved these to Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Excess, with an update. You may wish to sit down before reading. Alai (talk) 14:08, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Karnataka geo-stubs[edit]

At some point, someone has made geo-stub subcategories for all districts of Karnataka (see Category:Karnataka geography stubs). They all need populating, but it is very likely that many of them will be undersized and need to be reupmerged. We won't know which ones do until the parent is sorted however, so this needs doing fairly promptly. Grutness...wha? 00:04, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Vetting of unlisted templates[edit]

This list is over a year out of date. If we want to keep a notice asking people to vet templates, we need an updated list. Otherwise, this should be taken off of the "to do" list. Dawynn (talk) 04:11, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

Go for it, if no one has objected in almost three months now. Aelfthrytha (talk) 03:10, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Beetle stubs[edit]

I've gone through Category:Beetle stubs and sorted all the ones I could. The category is down to 1147 from the 1768 listed in the table. Of those 1147, a whopping 549 are included via the {{Buprestidae-stub}} template.

I guess that template is ready for its own category, is that right? Is that something I should do, or is there a place to get it approved first? I haven't been active in stub-sorting for a while, so please pardon my ignorance of procedure. -GTBacchus(talk) 23:06, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
