==Pros and cons of stubs==
Stubs have their bad sides. Readers can get confused by a too-short article: Is that all there is to say about the article? Is that the expected length of articles for Wikitravel? Where's all the info? Stubs can give a bad first impression if people haven't seen other Wikitravel articles. (But see [[Wikitravel:Stub articles#Practical stub-making|below]] for a way to make stubs less confusing.)
Mostly, though, stubs are a good thing. A stub is the seedling from which the full plant of an article emerges. One [[Wikitravel:Wikitravellers|Wikitraveller]] can add a stub, and other Wikitravellers will come along and add more information to it. Someone else comes in and reformats the article according to the [[Wikitravel:Manual of style|Manual of style]], and someone else adds photos. Eventually, the tiny one-sentence stub becomes a healthy, useful article.
