A stub article is one which plants a seed. It is a starting point from which others can build. A stub article is, by definition, short and to the point. Just enough information is needed to start the ball rolling. Maybe a few relevent references (links) to other related topics can be thrown in.

Over time others will come along and see that the stub is there, and will add their own input. From the small seed article a larger more comprehensive article will grow. By planting that seed you are helping the wiki expand and become a more useful community resource. Thanks!
