This template should be added at the beginning of incomplete articles. Please enter more detailed indications as the first argument about what the article is still missing, whether it is a work in progress and the like; consider expanding the description in the discussion page.
You can override the default discussion page with a second optional argument:

Do not confuse this template with [[Template:Expansion]], which is used to flag articles that are relatively complete but lacking in detail.
Flagged pages can be found in [[Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Stub]]. If knowledgeable in a subject, users are encouraged to participate to expand the article and remove the {{ic|<nowiki>{{Stub}}</nowiki>}} flag when finished.
