To wikify an article is to format it using Wiki markup and add internal links to related articles.

Example of wikifying an article

A user could discover that there was no hunter article and create a stub for hunter, where he simply copied/pasted the contents of Blizzard's description of hunters to it.

Hunter stub example

How a page might look after simply being copy/pasted from another web page:

Azeroth is home to a wide variety of beasts. From the new world of Lordaeron to the old world of Kalimdor, all manner of creatures can be found. Some are friendly, some are ferocious - yet they all have one thing in common. Each creature shares a special connection with Hunters. Hunters track, tame, and slay all manner of animals and beasts found in the wild. Whether they rely on bows or firearms, Hunters consider their weapons and pets to be their only true friends. Strengths:

Can tame and control various beasts

Can travel very fast using Aspect of Cheetah and share it with Aspect of the Pack

Has special abilities vs. beasts

Can use various beast special abilities

Good at chasing monsters or players that run away ...
