Prevent the "stub" tag being added to articles with other stub tags
OpenPublic

Description

Via http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:Page_Curation#Prevent_.7B.7Bstub.7D.7D_being_added_to_stub-sorted_articles:

"A suggestion: if an article already has a subject-specific stub tag like {{Iran-footy-bio-stub}}, then the Curation Bar should grey out the option of adding {{stub}}. Even experienced editors have occasional lapses on this, and new editors do it regularly, and it wastes the time of stub-sorters"

If this sounds like it can be done easily, lemme know and I'll build up a spreadsheet of stuff :)

Sounds sensible if that's the case :).

Meh, wrong link

This bug report doesn't want even similar tags to be added, while the other one doesn't want "exactly" same ones to be added.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
