There is a category of questions, which will never bother a learner of German, but is more about curiosities. Within two minutes I collected these examples:

A tag "trivia" is in my opinion appropriate, but I'm unsure, whether a new tag is justified for this somewhat exotic category.


I created a tag with exactly this in mind, but I have no strong opinion on the name. (If you have, please add an answer, such that this can be voted upon.)

However, my criterion is less that such questions won’t bother learners but are about language records, singularities, and so on.

  • Curiosities is just as fine for me. – guidot Jun 28 '16 at 7:43
  • I think curiosities is more appropriate, but trivia is more likely to be entered without knowing about the exact tag name (as is records, which is already an alias). Maybe it should be featured in the short description. – Crissov Jun 29 '16 at 8:24

    We can always synonymise [trivia] to [curiosities]. Also, feel free to improve the tag wiki. – Wrzlprmft Jun 29 '16 at 8:32
