Tips for being a Pathfinder Chronicler 2

Don't have the patience or time to create a fully realized article? Create a stub.

Something is (generally) better than nothing. There are literally thousands of topics which have not been covered in the Golariopedia (just take a look at Special:WantedPages for starters). It's wonderful when someone creates a complete article on a subject spanning multiple publications and numerous sub-sections, but that's not always the case. Sometimes you only have 20 minutes to spare, or you just want to work on something small.

Why not create a stub? A stub is a smaller article on a subject that gives only basic information. For example, let's say you're writing an article on the Empire State Building in New York City. A stub article might give brief information as to the location of the building, where it was built and how high it is, and maybe a factoid or two about its history. Even though it's just a stub, the article is well-written and readable. It's not just a collection of random facts or bullet-points. It just gives you a basic outline of the subject. Just add a {{stub}} template and you're done!

Stubs (IMO) are great in that they give you something to work with. Now you're not just looking at a blank page, you're looking at a short article that someone has taken some time with, that already has the basic outlines of a larger article. It can help inspire and motivate you to write something longer, and it adds to our Total Pages count!

And just to reiterate: we don't just want random facts or bullet points in a stub article, you can put those in your sandbox page. We are looking for short, decently-written abstracts of a bigger subject.
