Avoid creating lists of miscellaneous information. These lists, often placed in a "trivia" section, should in most cases be considered temporary, until a better method of presentation can be determined. A better way to organize an article is to provide a logical grouping and ordering of facts that gives an integrated presentation, providing context and smooth transitions, whether in text, list, or table.

What doesn't belong in the trivia section

  • Incidental facts and statistics. The trivia section is not an indiscriminate collection of information. Avoid statistics, and place relevant facts in a section of the article that they relate to.
  • Broad similarities. Only similarities that are detailed and identified with a particular subject should be listed in an article. Broad similarities should not be listed.
  • The trivia section is not a forum. Do not "reply" to other trivia list items.

How to incorporate trivia into the article

Find a related section

If the new information is related to information already covered in existing sections, put the new information there.

Create a new section

If you have enough new information to write an entire section, it's best to create a section for it instead of laying it all as a list of disjointed bullet points.
