This is a short note to remind you that the African destubathon is still
ongoing and that your participation would be very appreciated.
This will be held from Saturday 15th October to Sunday 27th November.
It is a general stub elimination contest, with the intention to cover
all topics (with a special push on Women). The idea is simple: blast
away as many of our 37,000 + Africa stubs as possible! There is US$2380
(about £1945) available in total for prizes for this, to whoever who
fleshes out the most stubs from every country of Africa, the most
expansions for geography, wildlife and women, and for producing Good
To "destub" an article all you have to do is ensure it's minimum 1.5 kB
(1500 characters) readable prose in total, which you can measure using
this tool. The existing text and text you add is expected to all be
verifiable and adequately sourced to reliable sources, with the expected
Wikipedia:Citations drawn up. Whoever "destubs" the most articles for a
given country wins a prize, and whoever wins the most "destubs" for the
most countries will be crowned the overall winner.
