This is an essay on the deletion policy.
|This page in a nutshell: This page is an essay about the quote "Do not confuse stub status with non-notability."|
Sometimes in articles for deletion discussions, editors will argue that an article is small or contains very little content and therefore must not be notable. This is a fallacy simply because a short article may be incomplete or simply may only be warranted. Such articles are typically called a stub, and stub articles are widely accepted as a common type of article.
User:Montanabw stated eloquently in one discussion "Do not confuse stub status with non-notability."
