Stub articles by region (priority 2)

This is a list of stub messages/templates that are applied to stubs. This list is maintained and regularly updated by the Stub sorting WikiProject, with the purpose of keeping a list of approved templates and categories.  
  • Problem and why it should be fixed:
The list may not contain the region that would apply to the stub article that needs the message/template.  Even though this list is regularly updated, it may be necessary to add or edit a region to fit the stub that needs information

Create a new template for the region needed or add information to the Talk page, so that the people working on the project can add the template.
