Taslak madde Vikigezgin'in standart formatına uymayan (örneğin; Gezin, Yiyin, Güvende kalın) maddelere denir. Bu formata sahip olmadan maddeler muhtemelen gezginler için çok faydalı olmayacaktır. Taslak maddeler genellikle, Vikigezgin ile yeni tanışan ve şablon ve formatlar hakkında bilgisi olmayan veya bunları nasıl ekleyeceğini bilmeyen insanlar tarafından oluşturulur; genellikle beyaz bir sayfaya kesinlikle iyi bir adım olan biraz bilgi eklerler.

Eğer bir madde Vikigezgin'de bahsedilmeye değerse, kullandığımız şablonlardan birine uyacaktır. Eğer bir şablon kullanıldıysa ve bölümlerinden en azından bir veya ikisi yazıldıysa -; en azından destinasyonun ne ve neresi olduğu ("Karınca Adası Çanakkale'dedir." gibi) yazıldıysa, madde artık gelişmekte olan madde olarak düşünülebilir.

Pros and cons of stubs[edit | edit source]

Stubs have their bad sides. Readers can get confused by a too-short article: Is that all there is to say about the article? Is that the expected length of articles for Wikivoyage? Where's all the info? Stubs can give a bad first impression if people haven't seen other Wikivoyage articles. (But see below for a way to make stubs less confusing.)

Mostly, though, stubs are a good thing. A stub is the seedling from which the full plant of an article emerges. One Wikivoyager can add a stub, and other Wikivoyagers will come along and add more information to it. Someone else comes in and reformats the article according to the Manual of style, and someone else adds photos. Eventually, the tiny one-sentence stub becomes a healthy, useful article.

Identification[edit | edit source]

If you set the Threshold for stub display value to something other than 0 in your preferences, links to stub articles will be shown in a different color from links to complete articles or to non-existent articles. The threshold value is a number of characters in the article; somewhere around 500 characters should give you a good idea of whether an article is long enough or not.

Note that this only shows short articles, and so it's a very rough approximation of stubbiness. Some articles may need additional information, even if they stretch for hundreds of thousands of characters. We don't have the software yet to decide if an article covers its subject well.

What to do with them[edit | edit source]

If you make a stub article, or see one that someone else has made, you can tag it, upgrade it, or (if necessary) delete it.

Tag[edit | edit source]

If the article isn't going to be improved right away, it's good to add a little disclaimer that admits that the article is barely begun. This gives a bit of extra impetus to readers to add what they know to an article. There's special tag in our software to mark something as a stub. It looks like this: {{stub}} which makes this appear on the page: Template:Stub

You can add the stub message at the bottom of the page. This reassures readers that we know the article is not complete, and that it's not indicative of the overall quality expected out of Wikivoyage articles. Also, it invites them to add whatever they can to make the article better.

Upgrade[edit | edit source]

But there's really no need for the {{stub}} tag to get used at all. Instead, copy the appropriate article template to the stub article, and incorporate the existing nuggets of information into the appropriate section(s). For example, if the stub is for a region of a country, copy over the region article template. The quickest way to do this is to type {{subst:region}} into the article, save the page, then continue editing to fix the intro paragraph and place the existing information in the right section(s). Other common templates you can include using {{subst:____}} are: smallcity (for anything from a village with a couple motels to a typical city), bigcity (for major travel destinations), district (for sections of a bigcity), or park (for national and other major parks).

People are more comfortable if they can add just a little information at a time, rather than writing the whole article from scratch, and a template like this makes it much easier to do that. And once you've properly added a template, the article is no longer a stub. The disclaimer can be changed to an {{outline}} or (if it contains enough information) something even higher.

Delete[edit | edit source]

Alternatively, if a stub is about a topic that is never going to turn into a worthwhile Wikivoyage article then it should be proposed for deletion if it doesn't align with our goals or else redirected to an appropriate article that the topic can be incorporated into. Redirection or deletion is often a pragmatic decision. There is little point in writing lots of tiny stub articles about small but nearby places (each with only one or two attractions) when a single article about the area all those places are in can cover all the attractions in one hit, and it will not be a stub, because the template can be filled out too.
