Also given dual nature of the wiki as a forum as well as an information source, it perhaps is not appropriate to say that a page is useless OR _too_ short.

There's a difference between an article of some sort versus a blank page bearing only a name and location, which is seen on a lot of business "seed" pages. I suggest that those all get the {seed} tag replaced with the ["Apathy"] include, because it's clear that no real effort was made towards establishing a usable page. &lt;.&lt; --["Users/EdWins"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Seed/Definitionhttp://daviswiki.org/Seed/Definition2007-04-17 22:37:32NumiaCairaguasComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Seed/Definition<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 20: </td> <td> Line 20: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2007-04-17 21:37:32'' [[nbsp]] I like the new seed tag!
