Lately I’ve often wondered whether I should contribute my newly learned knowledge to Wikipedia by creating a dedicated article. Creating decent articles is however a lengthy and quite a time-consuming process. So how about setting a mental note by creating the planned article page and only contributing the most basic of information, with the intent of improving it later on. This begs the question is such a strategy can be considered good practice. Fortunately I found a Wikipedia page going in further detail on the definition of a ‘stub’, which basically is a short article of which the value can be questioned. A key point for me to take away from this article is the fact that Wikipedia is not a dictionary. This come down to the key distinction that a dictionary is about the word(s), whilst Wikipedia is about the subject. So in order to start a new article in a rightly fashion, some decent work will have to be done in advance.
