== What is an Addendum subpage? ==


An Addendum is, quite specifically, a continuation of the encyclopedia article.  This is to be carefully distinguished from other kinds of subpages in that it is specifically contextualized by, and is supplementary text for, the encyclopedia article.  In other words, it would and could be included in a longer version of the article, but in order to keep the main article brief, we have simply moved this text to a different page.
An Addendum is an appendage to the main article of content, the inclusion of which would hamper the readability of the main article.  It also should not duplicate content (bibliography, related pages, chronology, discography, etc.) found on other subpages.


To be clear, an Addendum is not intended to stand by itself, but is written specifically to throw light on a specific encyclopedia article (and not any subpage).  It is possible that information in an Addendum would ''also'' be elaborated in greater and self-contained detail in a separate article altogether.
An Addendum could include a detailed proof of some point made in the article, a detailed list explaining various aspects of the main article, a full explanation of formulas, and so on.

This page contains policies regarding Addendum subpages.

What is an Addendum subpage?

An Addendum is an appendage to the main article of content, the inclusion of which would hamper the readability of the main article. It also should not duplicate content (bibliography, related pages, chronology, discography, etc.) found on other subpages.

An Addendum could include a detailed proof of some point made in the article, a detailed list explaining various aspects of the main article, a full explanation of formulas, and so on.

It is possible that information in an Addendum would also be elaborated in greater and self-contained detail in a separate article altogether.

If you have questions about the suitability of content for an Addendum or main article, the best policy is start a discussion about it on the Article's talk page or ask an editor, preferably an editor of the workgroup to which the article has been assigned.
