Lists are created through the use of * and # symbols. Care must be taken to ensure lists interact well with other elements on the page, and with our spacing guidelines.
If you need help creating lists, see T:LIST MARK.

Lists, both ordered and unordered, are easily created using wiki markup. However, ease of creation does not mean that they should be over used. Especially within in-universe articles, it's often better to find a way to present the material in normal paragraphs. This isn't, of course, to say that lists are forbidden, but most truly good are comprised of ordinary prose, not bullet points.

If you do find that the best way to present a particular bit of information is with a list, however, there is one rule you must observe:

Pictures can't go to the left of lists.

See how this is crowding the bullets? They're all inside the margin of thumbnail border.

A picture visually breaks up the straight left margin of the list. Since the whole reason for making a list is that straight edge, there's no padding to the left of the bullets (or numbers) that create lists. Thus a picture put to the left of a list will crowd itself over the top of the bullets.

  • Item 1
  • Item 2
  1. The picture crashes into numbers, too.
  • Item 4
  • Item 5
  • It gets really ugly if you have a long list
  • See how the list is now going back to the left margin?
