For guidance on the encyclopedic suitability of subjects or articles as a whole, refer to Wikipedia:Notability. For the suitability of certain types of content, see Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not. For the relevance of links to outside websites, see Wikipedia:External links.

On Wikipedia, relevance is a consideration whether a fact or detail in an article is useful to the reader or is out of scope of the article. If a fact is not relevant to the topic of the article, it should not be mentioned in that article. This does not mean it can not be mentioned in some other article. Mentioning things that are irrelevant to an article's topic can unnecessarily bloat an article, making it difficult for a reader to remain focused, and can also give the things mentioned undue weight.
