A stub is an article having a few sentences of text which happens to be too short to provide encyclopedic coverage of the topic of the article. See Wikipedia:Stub.

The concept is used on other wikis too and most commonly means a short article that has the potential to be longer. There's no requirement to add stub templates to a page, but some people believe it encourages other people to edit if they see the invitation to extend the short article.
