Right now on TDL the way we decide stubs and non-stubs is by 20 sentences which yes is good but could be better, most systems use word count though even wikia itself for its articles so I suggest we change our system to word count I was thinking anything under 300 words could be considered a stub though the limit can be higher or lower depending on users and staff thoughts
Vote Support if you like this idea and think we should do it or oppose if you prefer the way we do it now or Neutral if you are unsure.
Oppose. The sentence count is the easiest method, and makes life easier for newer users, and having a word limit can be more discouraging than a sentence limit, as it begins to sound like a school essay as soon as you introduce word counts.
Support I know of wikis that use this and it works just fine. Also, there can be very long sentences on a page that make it complete, but the page might still be a "stub" because of sentence count. Word count is more accurate.
I was thinking of kilobytes myself. But I forgot to bring it up, mainly because I was too distracted by the fact that I felt that the sentence count system should not be removed, although I'm not necessarily opposed to having a word count system, I am opposed to the idea of it replacing the sentence count system. So my feelings towards the proposal as a whole remain mixed.
