New Trivia Policy

  • Ok folks, here's the deal: We're revamping the trivia policy in light of some rather trivial information that has been added lately. Basically, name similarities that are pure coincidence will not be allowed as trivia. For example, the name of the planet Pressha was created by a random name generator. It is sheer happenstance that this is also the name of a late '90s R&B singer. As such, the fact that they share the name is not trivia, it is coincidence. Likewise with the fact that Alko, in addition to being an ME planet, is the national alcohol monopoly of Finland, or that Camarón is Spanish for shrimp, and there is a planet named Camaron.
  • Basically, what it boils down to is this: If it's clearly an inspired name (for example, the planets and systems of the Artemis Tau cluster, which follow a theme) it's trivia. If it's completely unrelated and coincidental, it isn't. This obviously relates mostly to name-oriented trivia, not so much to substance-type trivia, like comparing the artifact on Eletania to the sphere from Sphere, or the monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey , but if needs be it can also be applied to those. Sound fair? If not, this is as good a place as any to provide feedback! SpartHawg948 22:52, December 15, 2009 (UTC)
