I feel like "Did you know" is too historically heavy, and what I mean by that is it contains a lot of "this used to be like this, and that was like that before this happened", almost as if someone was showing off with their knowledge of everything TF2. (For example, today these facts were featured: "...that Meet the Spy was leaked onto YouTube on May 17, 2009, two days before its intended release?" and "...that the Flamethrower could not originally perform airblasts before the Pyro Update?") I think it should have more NOW facts, like "this can be done with this; if you do that and that; when doing this...". I apologize if I didn't format this correctly, I'm not that good with Wikis.

"almost as if someone was showing off with their knowledge of everything TF2" isn't that why we are here? --Piemanmoo 22:17, 17 October 2013 (PDT)

Should the "fact" be actual wiki content?

A quick, and short scan reveal a couple "facts" that would be reverted if anyone actual put them into an article.

By way of example, these two facts are not in the linked articles, would be reverted from Trivia if they were actualy added:

...that the Teleporter is the only building that does not change in appearance when upgraded?

X of Y and not even interesting; and not even true, the light effects change and rotation speeds up..

and

...that the scrapped Nail Gun's ammo belt appears in the bottom space of a Dispenser, regardless of level?

The "regardless of level" clause is X of Y and not even interesting.

We should add a rule that the fact actually be in the linked article!
