- A. General (revised July 19, 2014)
- 1. A stub is an article that is less than 1,000 bytes.
- 2. Any article that is defined as a stub but also is an article in which all information is complete, is no longer considered a stub, no matter the length. Example: Since a stub is considered to be less than 1,000 bytes, and a certain article is 700 bytes, yet it is almost impossible to add any more information, the article can no longer be considered a stub.
