Nutshell.png This page in a nutshell: An article that provides insufficient information and is capable of expansion should be marked as a stub.

Stubs are RuneScape Players Wiki articles that have insufficient information and are capable of expansion. Stubs are generally a couple paragraphs or less.

Basic information

A stub is an article containing only a few sentences of text which is too short to provide enough coverage of a subject, and which is capable of expansion. When creating or editing a stub, the goal is for it to become a full, informative article.

There is no set size at which an article stops being a stub. While very short articles are likely to be stubs, there are some subjects about which very little can be written. Conversely, there are subjects about which a lot could be written – their articles may still be stubs even if they are a few paragraphs long.

Naming a stub

When you've created or found a small article that is deemed to be a stub, simply edit the page and add the {{stub}} template to the bottom of it. Once you have completed this step and saved the page, the article will include this box:

This article is a stub. You can help the RuneScape Players Wiki by expanding it.

This template will mark the article as a stub.
