I think that were stub articles, there is nothng wrong in creating stub articles by bot.As per Jimmy wales "*There’s nothing wrong with the idea of generating articles on populated places using bots. During one of his recent visits to India, Jimmy Wales mentioned how stub articles on the populated places in United States drove the growth of English Wikipedia. People hailing from these places would google their hometowns and arrive at Wikipedia. They would then start adding the missing details to these articles, becoming active contributors in the process."
That why hindi wiki had such kind of stub articles, These article were generated just before utkarsh's analysis.Unfortunately they got some error due to some bot script error. We were already aware of that.Due to some factual errors these articles were deleted instantaneously. In last 4 month hindi wiki has deleted about 20,000 such kind of stub articles per our community discussion.We have also banned creation of very short article through a abuse filter which has not allowed about 2000 article creation for last 3 months.Giving a little information about any article is not bad as it contain information but as these recently created **Village **article got some errors due to error in bot script and incorrect information that's why we deleted such type of articles immediately.Such kind of articles are present in many big wikis.I am happy after deleting 20,000 such kind of article hindi wiki still have 80,000 articles.We want our wiki growth in all dimensions not only in no of articles.
