On this WikiProject Stub sorting subpage, you can propose new stub types (please read the procedures beforehand!), as well as the reorganization and subdivision of existing stub types. You can also discuss anything else related to stubs on the talk page.

Proposing new stub types – procedure[edit]

Important: If you wish to propose the creation of a stub ARTICLE you've come to the wrong place. If you don't have a username yourself, please go to WP:AFC for proposing a new article. If you already have a username, you can create the article yourself. If you don't know how, add {{Helpme}} to your user talk page to request help from other editors. This page only deals with stub TEMPLATES and CATEGORIES; we cannot help you with creating articles.

Proposing new stub types
If you wish to propose a new stub category and template, please follow these procedures:
  1. Check the List of stub types or under Category:Stub categories to make sure that your proposed new stub does not already exist.
  2. List it at the top of the current month's section, under a header, like the ones shown (if any). Sign it with a datestamp (~~~~).
    • Please bear in mind that a stub category isn't about the importance or notability of the topic!
  3. Find a good number[1] of stub articles, as many as you can, that will fit that template. You may use this tool to scan through categories; tagged stubs are always in Category:All stub articles and transclude {{asbox}}. Each of these articles can be:
    • currently marked with {{stub}};
    • currently marked with another type of stub tag (in which case you should justify why your tag is better for the article than the current one);
    • a stub whose categorisation is highly ambiguous or questionable;
    • not marked as a stub.
  4. If you use any category scan (from the tool mentioned above or from any other), please link to it so that other users can confirm that the results are still accurate.
  5. Others may do the same, if they so desire.
  6. 5 days after listing it here, if there is general approval or no objection, go ahead and create the new category and/or template following the format on Wikipedia:Stub. List the new stub type on the stub types list in an appropriate section. If consensus is not clear, or discussion is still ongoing, the proposal will remain open until consensus can be reached.
  7. If you wish to propose a stub type which does not currently have 60 articles that could use it, you may propose an upmerged template in a similar way. An upmerged template would feed into currently existing stub categories until such time that there are enough stubs for a separate stub category. At that point a category for it may be separately proposed. Some times, it may be difficult to be sure how many stubs would get a tag - in which case you can also start with an upmerged stub tag until you're sure there are enough.

DO NOT place a proposal here for any stub type which has already been created and is being discussed at Wikipedia:Categories for discussion. The proposal page is only for stub types that have not yet been created, and it is better to keep any discussion of such stub types in one place rather than splitting it between different pages. Wikipedia:Categories for discussion is the correct page for proposals to delete a stub type.

^ . Good number means about 60 articles or more, or 30 or more if it is the primary stub type of a WikiProject, though this figure may vary from case to case.

"Speedy creation"[edit]

A stub type may be proposed for "speedy creation" if it meets one of the following criteria:

  • S1 - the creation of a category for which an approved upmerged template already exists and is now in use on more than 60 articles.
  • S2 - the creation of an upmerged national-level template for a subject in which other such national-level templates currently exist (e.g., X-bio-stub, X-hist-stub, or X-geo-stub, where X is the name of an internationally widely recognised country) or other instances where a clearly established pattern of similar subtypes exists. The proposed topic may not be controversial in scope. Many templates qualifying for S2 are listed at Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/To do/To create.

List speedy creation proposals in the same proposal listings as normal stub proposals below.

Proposals, February 2021[edit]

Please check how many articles qualify for a stub type before proposing it.


Neo-Gnostic Clergy Stubs[edit]

A stub for neo-Gnostic "bishops" and their other clergy, they already have a lot of people that are already articles that are basically just, "there here you go" type articles, like Robert Ambelain for example, etc.

KEleison (talk) 03:57, 7 February 2021 (UTC)

Can you tell how many articles would qualify for this type? (Also, the template would be {{Gnostic-clergy-stub}} and the category, Category:Gnostic clergy stubs.) Her Pegship (?) 20:31, 7 February 2021 (UTC)
From what I looked through so far, likely a couple hundred or so would quality as there's multiple online Gnostic databases that point to already existing Wikipedia articles that have a few short sentences at best. And they have an extremely large number of clergy which could possibly become future Wikipedia articles. KEleison (talk) 02:52, 8 February 2021 (UTC)
The bottom line is whether there would be any demand for such a stub type; Category:Gnostics has only 25 or so articles in it, and there isn't currently a category for Gnostic "clergy", so I'm not sure where those couple hundred articles would be found. I did a search on Petscan and came up with 67 results that fall under both Category:Gnosticism and Category:People associated with religion.[2] I haven't checked them to see whether they're all stubs.

Valdez–Cordova Census Area, Alaska geography stubs[edit]

The Valdez–Cordova Census Area was split into the Chugach Census Area and the Copper River Census Area nearly two years ago. Since no one else has bothered all this time, I am attempting to organize content appropriately ahead of the anticipated 2020 Census reports. I'm not sure either new category would meet whatever threshold you're seeking, so any advice would be appreciated. Category:Alaska geography stubs exists as a catch-all in any event. RadioKAOS / Talk to me, Billy / Transmissions 06:39, 17 December 2020 (UTC)

Hi there - Currently it looks like Copper Creek stub articles add up to around 32, and Chugash only 2; if you're in the process of assigning permcats for the stub articles, I suggest we wait until that's done and then reassess the numbers. Her Pegship (?) 02:13, 19 December 2020 (UTC)
@Pegship:, I'm not sure how you arrived at that figure, considering that the existing Category:Valdez–Cordova Census Area, Alaska geography stubs presently contains 102 entries. In contrast to the example of Arkansas I viewed above, there was community consensus in 2016 to do away with categorization by region in the case of Alaska (see Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2016 July 18#Category:Bristol Bay Borough, Alaska geography stubs). Per that consensus, if there truly isn't enough content for two separate categories, you can at least split {{ValdezCordovaAK-geo-stub}} and use Category:Alaska geography stubs to place whatever content that remains. RadioKAOS / Talk to me, Billy / Transmissions 23:05, 28 December 2020 (UTC)
@RadioKAOS:: I think I used PetScan, but I think I went to the wrong parent category (Geography of Unorganized Borough, Alaska by census area). I'm sure you're right. Her Pegship (?) 02:51, 29 December 2020 (UTC)
