A stub is a tool that holds the place of an article under construction. The name is often the only thing known about the subject. One of these show the reader that the topic exists, but is not yet ready for reference. If the reader is so inclined, they can create/edit the article themselves.

Usage: Simply add the name inside 2 curly braces at the appropriate place within the article.
The formatted stub will appear automatically. e.g. {{Quotes}}
