The Poland history stub[edit]

A stub is an article that is too short to provide encyclopedic coverage of the subject, but not so short as to provide no useful information. They are in effect place holders waiting for complete entries. In effect, a stub says "We need more information about this topic."

  1. When you find a stub, open the page for editing by hitting the "Edit" tab.
  2. Copy the text "{{Poland-hist-stub}}" to the bottom of the page.
  3. Hit the "Save" button at the bottom of the page. This will result in the following text being added to the article:

There is currently one child stub to the Poland-stub category: {{Poland-battle-stub}}

Please see Category:Poland stubs for the list of other Poland-related stub categories, and Category:History stubs for history stubs.


The top-level category for articles about Poland history is Category:History of Poland. This category should optimally contain no articles, only more detailed subcategories (as of 28 Dec 2006 it has 33 subcategories, including the stub category). To put an article into this category, add the following text to the bottom of the page, as with stubs: [[Category:History of Poland]]

Note on biographies[edit]

Please note that biographies, including historical biographies, are outside the scope of hist-stubs and hist-categories. Please see Category:Polish people stubs and Category:Polish people for related categories, and Wikipedia:WikiProject Biography for a wikiproject dedicated to biographies of historical and living persons.
