  • Problem and why it should be fixed:

  • Steps to resolve:

    • Go to the Stub Types page and select the area that the stub would fit into. Click on it and it will take you to a final category page for that area. Select a template that covers the subject. Copy the template.
    • Go back to the Stub article, and go to edit, then place the template at the top right of the page and save.


Short pages (2 and **)

  • Click to review articles for possible stubs
  • Problem and why it should be fixed:
    • Priority 2 - Pages that are "0 bytes" must be checked on a regular basis. If a page is 0 bytes, the page has been "blanked" which should generally not happen in the wiki. The page may need to be redirected to another page, or be deleted, or in rare cases may have even need to be restored to what it was before (if it was deleted due to vandalism). Research the history and Talk page to find out what needs to be done.
    • Priority not set - Some of these many page may be stub articles that need to have stub templates added to them.
    • Stubs placed in the right category will have a better chance to be turned into regular articles.

Pages with the fewest revisions (**)

  • Many but not all of these pages may be stubs. This is a list of all the articles with few revisions in the wiki.  Only a part will need to be corrected, if they are stubs.
  • The stubs, if placed in the right category will have a better chance to be turned into regular articles.






(**)These reports are lists of pages that meet a specific criteria; they don't mean that there is a problem with all the pages in the report and don't need to be "cleaned up."
