====Usage====
+
 
+
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.
+
 
+
<nowiki>{{Stub|reason}}</nowiki>
+
 
+
You can override the default discussion page with a second optional argument:
+
 
+
<nowiki>{{Stub|reason|Talk:Alternative Page}}</nowiki>
+
 
+
You can point to a specific section in the default talk page with the named {{ic|section}} parameter:
+
 
+
<nowiki>{{Stub|reason|section}}</nowiki>
+
 
+
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.
+
 
+
====Example==== <!-- unlike most other template examples, this one is not called directly so as not to categorize the page as disputed; please update the example if updating the code -->
