Template talk:Expansion

What is the intended difference in usage between this and Template:Stub? Perhaps the two should merged. --Aule the Smith 18:29, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

A stub is a very, vary short article, more or less a "placeholder" for a redlink. The expansion template is for articles that are longer, but not long and detailed enough. At least, that's how I see it. I wouldn't stonewall a merge, but I'm not quite convinced by its necessity. -- Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 18:35, 3 October 2008 (UTC)
The word stub does imply a short article yeah, but the descriptions of the two are almost identical. The advantage I had in mind would be having just the one category for articles requiring expansion. --Aule the Smith 18:43, 3 October 2008 (UTC)
