They are short or insufficient pieces of information and require additions to further increase the article's usefulness. The project values stubs as useful first steps toward complete articles.

A group of people can be defined by how people answer a specific set of questions. Even if the "members" of such a resulting group don't appear on any list, are not stored anywhere and never communicate their answers to anyone, it still exists in a certain sense by having a definite potential for action. We call this kind of "non-explicit" group an organic group (as opposed to a trust group which is one who's members are known to one another). The membership of organic groups can never be truly known and may be constantly changing, it's only when members are given the opportunity to act in a particular aligned way that the potential of such a group can begin to manifest.
