  • If you need real-time help, you can join our IRC help channel, #wikipedia-en-help.
  • If you are a new editor, you might prefer to ask your question at the Teahouse, an area specifically for new users to get help with editing, article creation and general Wikipedia use, in a friendly environment.

policy on trivia/gossip?

Hi, I removed a piece from the Jacinda Ardern article about her cat because it just seemed so trivial and inconsequential to me, but was reverted and told to obtain consensus. Seems to me just because something is covered in a RS doesn't mean it should be on wikipedia. Including stuff about a national leader's cat is kind of embarrassing. Does WP:INDISCRIMINATE apply in cases like this? MaxBrowne2 (talk) 01:28, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

Unfortunately, if WP:Reliable sources talk about it at some length, then it seems that it can go into an article. Most national leaders' pets become newsworthy at one time or another. See FDR's Fala (dog), for example. It was a good try on your part; keep it up. BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 02:29, 14 October 2019 (UTC)
"Good try?" Don't patronise me, I'm not some newbie. WP:NOTNEWS, WP:TOOMUCH and WP:UNDUE can all be argued here. MaxBrowne2 (talk) 02:56, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
