This category lists stub articles on this wiki.

A stub is a short article that can be expanded with more information on a subject by any user. For example, a stub is a "one-line" sentence or paragraph and typically, a good sentence is made up of five to seven paragraphs followed by a end notation (i.e. period, question mark, etc).

To mark an article as a "stub" add the code {{stub}} to the end of any article.

Good paragraph

In this example our paragraph is a good sentence because its made up of five paragraphs followed by a end notation (i.e. period, question mark, etc).

  • 1. John lived in San Francisco, California, with his two parents. He had his own bedroom, which he decorated himself.
  • 2. Him and parents all lived comfortably in the cozy apartment on the third floor. The apartments were only three blocks from where he attended J.U. High School.
  • 3. John was only five years old, but he was extremely smart for his age.
  • 4. He wasn’t that tall and he was a bit on the skinny side. He had big blue eyes, light brown hair, rosy cheeks, and a friendly smile.
  • 5. Just looking at him he seemed like any other kid-- quite normal.

Paragraphs

A paragraph should always have complete(a subject and a verb), correct (accurate data), and concise sentences. In fact, sentences must have added support to verify the articles topic. For example, support can be newspapers, statistics, books, magazines, journals, dictionary, websites or other supporting reference materiel that outlines the rules detailed in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA Style).

References

A strong supporting paragraph or sentence should always come with a reference to direct a reader elsewhere for additional information. Additionally, references are to be listed in alphabetic order.
