I find that simply working on WP is the education one needs to realise
missing. "Good stubs" are still, well, good. They tend not to
require special skills to write.
Exactly. No special skills are required, you just have a look a little
harder than you used to to find something to do. A few years ago you
could click "random article", click a red link and write a stub. Now,
there aren't anywhere near as many easy red links.
Partially because some people believe there shouldn't be any red links
(especially in featured articles), and if they can't find any material for a
stub, remove the link.
On the other hand, some people create a stub based on whatever the article
offhandedly says...which means a number of the biographies linked to from an
obscure article I wrote are coatrack articles with a disproportionate
depiction of the subject. Again, low-hanging fruit that's been overlooked.
