A stub is a short article which contains a few sentences of text, which is too short to provide extended coverage of a subject, but not so short as to provide no useful information. Bigger articles are usually not considered stubs, even if they lack style, format or copy editing. Such pages are listed under Pages Needing Cleanup or Pages Needing Wikification.

If you have additional information about the subject, you can simply edit the stub page or section to expand it. You might spot a stub page or section that is not labeled as a stub yet and you have no additional information to add. In this case you should add the {{stub}} or {{sectstub}} template to the page or section respectively to include it in the list of stubs.
