Icon[edit]

The icon for rewrite and possibly stub should be minecraft-themed. This resembles too much other wikis... Calinou - talk × contribs » 21:24, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Hey thanks for telling me this before I spent an hour getting an image for stub. Cool12309(T|C) 22:38, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Compressed version[edit]

This template is very small and takes up quite a bit of space at the beginning of a page. Wikipedia's Stub templates does not contain a msgbox and also goes at the bottom of a page, which I think looks much better.

Compare the following:

This article is a stub, meaning that it lacks some important content.
You can help by expanding it with further information relating to the topic.
This article is a stub. You can help us by expanding it.

The latter is less obtrusive and still gives the same information. Or we could still have it in a compact msgbox:

Does look better than the one that is used now while providing the same information. jjlr (talk) 07:13, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

I definitely support the compact msgbox over the original version, though I'm undecided on whether the compact msgbox or no msgbox is better. However on my phone both the original and compact msgbox take up the entire width of the screen (the text ends normally but the box continues takes up the entire width for some reason), so in this case no msgbox would run into the least issues. -Sonicwave (talk|edits) 07:20, 12 April 2018 (UTC)
@Sonicwave32: I would agree with that but for me the message box makes it seem more noticeable while still feeling like it's self contained. This is a problem i have on wikipedia as well, the stub message blends in and is easier to miss. jjlr (talk) 07:31, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

I don't really see what the problem is with the stub template we have now - it doesn't really take up that much space, in my opinion. If I were to choose between these two, I would definitely choose the message box one. I really think it's a lot more noticeable if it's in a message box and more consistent with other notice templates. There's not really any reason to not include it in a message box, except to be consistent with "Wikipedia" - honestly, though, I like having a message box better than how Wikipedia puts their stubs.-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta.png 12:24, 12 April 2018 (UTC)
