I think[edit]

Only Lore articles require a stub template at this point. - Infinite - talk 12:56, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

EDIT: This does not include anet stubs. - Infinite - talk 13:21, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
Could depend really. If there are new articles with lots and lots of information... Some people might consider to quickly create the related pages... and suddenly notice that they have to go. Thus, tagging it as a stub and save the page. But yeah, nearly the rest of all the pages might not need it. ge4ce 13:28, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

Cleanup[edit]

So, I think it's about time we clean this category up. Anyone else agree? EiveTalk 00:15, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

I think cleaning up the entire maintenance category would be good, but heres a start. Also, I feel that this should be here:
"Keep in mind that {{stub}} tags are for pages with incomplete or missing info, not pages that are just short in length. Stub categories should be kept useful." Aquadrizzt (talk)(contribs) 00:48, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

I know this discussion is kinda old, but I definitely agree. I've deleted a few stub tags from some storyline articles that seemed to be complete, but good lord there a lot of articles on this list. LuvianBlue 05:12, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

What Classifies a stub[edit]

My question is what Classifies a stub. When is there enough information. For example A_Grisly_Shipment is obviously a stub. I have no clue what information is needed there. But there are some that I have seen tagged that really look like they are complete. Can't find one at the moment though. Anzenketh 07:07, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

Same question, especially relating to story steps. Lots of the articles here are well and truly done, but still remain "stubs". I may start just removing the stub category on some of them and seeing if there is any argument. MarinAlacet (talk) 20:32, 3 June 2013 (UTC)
Are the objectives complete? Is the dialogue complete? Does it have a walkthrough? Is there a list of NPCs and foes encountered? I think those are the major sections for a story article. If only one or two are incomplete, you can replace the overall stub tag with {{section-stub}} on the incomplete sections. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 22:37, 3 June 2013 (UTC)
