Removing the Stub Message

Should you have edited a stub to the point where you feel that it is no longer a stub, simply remove the {{''category''-stub}} text, which should be at the bottom of the text box. (The italicized category signifies the actual category message that'll print, i.e. colonial or cylon). It'll remove the message.
