Template talk:Stub


Should stub notices come before or after navigation table templates? I've found a lot of examples of both. Or does it not matter? — Laoris (Blah) 19:49, 11 January 2009 (UTC)


The template as it stands looks boring, unimaginative, dull, and worst of all, unnoticeable. Outside of the Featured Stubs feature, how exactly are we to entice our fellow Bulbapedians to fix a stub if the notice noting that the article in question in fact is a stub is extremely unnoticeable? The solution, plain and simple, fix it up. Make it better. More noticeable. And here's my idea.

050Diglett.png This article is a stub.

The Diglett picture is significant, seeing as Diglett's stature can best be defined as "stubby". And since this be a template for stubs, I think it appropriate. Missingno. Master wants YOU! Join the Order of the Glitch! (my talk page) 00:06, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Or see this. The one above looks odd. tc²₆tc26 01:45, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
Odd catches people's attention, which in the case of a notice urging people to contribute to the article, is exactly what we want. Besides, it doesn't look THAT odd. Missingno. Master wants YOU! Join the Order of the Glitch! (my talk page) 02:28, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, but it's just plain ugly. The Bulbanews template might be a nice carryover. —darklordtrom 02:44, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
Let's see what we can do wih this... Psychic on Unknown, meh. It should also be made smaller like the others but it is fairly streamlined.

Unknown does seem good, maybe because it's "glitchy" and "broken" but feel free to try out other colours and combinations. (Maybe Ground for Diglett).--MisterE13 02:46, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
Diglett's already used. {{incomplete}}

Something like this would be good. —darklordtrom 02:56, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
Mine is more the standard though. I've set it to change type colours, if you see one that looks good, keep it. I did like the BP logo idea though. (Maybe Grass)--MisterE13 07:29, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
Those seem too thick. If you look at all the other stub tags, their thin. Maybe...--Clarky13 08:02, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Nice, Clarky. MMaster, yours is the standard for top-of-the-article tags (although I do believe they are a bit chunky; hence I updated the spoiler tag). If we have votes, I give mine to Clarky's design. —darklordtrom 09:51, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
Why thank you, Trom. I also vote for mine.--Clarky13 08:54, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
Clarky's is nice, but I would also like a sort of customization for the other types of stubs. We have, TCGstubs, song stubs, anime stubs. Maybe each can get different pictures and colors to become more of a template and less of a line. MaverickNate 16:50, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I agree. We do need a stub modernization happening happening here, with modern pictures and curvy edges.--Clarky13 06:49, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Glitch stub

Maybe a:File:RBGlitch234.png would be more appropriate than Missingno. due to its small size, and that Missingno. is on the {{Project GlitchDex notice}}, it looks repetitive when next to each other.--SnorlaxMonster. Help here 05:10, 24 December 2009 (UTC)

Google Chrome support

Please add <br clear="all" /> to the very beginning. Else Chrome runs the template into the infobox if early.- unsigned comment from immewnity (talkcontribs)

Change from BP logo to bulb?

Currently, the template uses the BP logo. However, the Bulbapedia name is hard to be seen. Might just the bulb work better?--immewnitythemew 21:05, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
