  • What is a stub?
  • How do we indicate that a page is a stub?
Quick reading shows that a stub is a user created template. If, for example you set up Template:Stub, you can call the stub template using {{Stub}}. Best to look at the basic Mediawiki Template help for this [[1]]. You could in fact use the link here to write the basic template. This would also apply to writing the templates for things like groups, artists, etc. Stephensd 16:50, 17 September 2010 (UTC)
I've attempted this (apparently successfully!) on the page for Rita Pace --Toni Sant (talk) 19:41, 22 September 2010 (UTC)

Media files

A Help page on Uploading/Embedding Media files is needed now that we're able to embed media files on pages. --Toni Sant (talk) 16:32, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Patrolling pages?

What does 'patrolled' mean on some pages (bottom right)? I think this has something to do with pages that may have controversial contents but I need to look into it more closely as it's certainly one of the things we need to know about in terms of general maintenance etc. --Toni Sant (talk) 16:49, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

I've looked into this and it seems like it's a relatively newish feature of MediaWiki to enable administrators to mark pages that they look at. This way if admins mark a page as patrolled it means that somebody at admin level has already seen this page. It's probably useful if/when we establish a way to ensure that site admins look at all new pages. --Toni Sant (talk) 13:37, 19 October 2010 (UTC)
