Category talk:Stubs

I just marked a lot of articles as stubs. I did not do every article. My criteria was either articles missing large chunks of info, or (mostly) articles that need to be reformatted to follow appearance consistent with other articles. There were many articles that were short, but complete — these I did not mark as stubs. If you have a question, please drop me a line. :) - RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 04:22, 15 December 2006 (EST)

  • I added a "needs" variable to the stub template. See the Bennets' home (Odessa) for an example. This should let us make it clearer, when necessary, what's required to fix the article.--Hardvice (talk) 12:36, 15 December 2006 (EST)

Fan Creations

I believe that Nissica and Paire (etc.) should be under a different Stub page. Such as: Category: Fan Creation Stubs. Since they are fan creations and not actual things like Washington, DC or Danko's team or etc. Thoughts? --Iheartheroes 14:51, 10 August 2009 (EDT)

  • There is already a Category:User Stubs. If it is a fan creation, there shouldn't be stubs if it is in the mainspace. If it's a user page, the user should do {{stub|type=user}} to enable the user stubs cat. Otherwise, the user is signaling he/she wants help with that user page.--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:36, 10 August 2009 (EDT)
    • Ok. But then why are Nissica, Paire, and other fan creations on the main stub page and not the user stub page? --Iheartheroes 16:06, 10 August 2009 (EDT)
      • Because they are mainspace pages, and they can be updated by anyone, just like articles such as Washington, DC. If no one wants to update them anymore, we could consider deleting them or moving them back to their creator's userspace, but I doubt that is the case for Nissica and Paire.--MiamiVolts (talk) 16:10, 10 August 2009 (EDT)
        • Then why do they have the fan creation template on their pages if they are part of the mainspace? --Iheartheroes 16:24, 10 August 2009 (EDT)
          • Many fan creations are in the main namespace. For instance, the article about Paire, as much as I hate it, is not something that one person came up with. It's an article that "chronicles" the relationship between Peter and Claire. It's stupid, but it's not one person's creation. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:31, 12 August 2009 (EDT)
            • I understand, it annoys me too. But that's why I'm wandering why we have it under the main Stub page. And not another, like User, or makeing a new one-Fan Creation.


Do Interviews belong in the Cast an Crew stub page, or the normal stub page? --Iheartheroes 20:57, 3 September 2009 (EDT)
