Nominations table

The Eviction & Percentage Table[edit]

I did start the Percentage & Vote part. Do we really need the horrific colour coding? The table will look much better without the Red, Blue and Green Colours as the background. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Coreix (talkcontribs)

For comparison, here's the current table:
And here's how it would look without the coloured backgrounds:

I prefer it with the colours. — AnemoneProjectors (talk) 21:29, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

--- Neither are grade. Hopefully we can find an alternative method.

Eviction Table - Discussion (2)[edit]

Ok I got bored so the Eviction Table right now is really cramp. Can we maybe move the setting. I created this in frontpage. {{Was lazy to do it on Wiki, and nor am I good at it lol}}

I like it, but I think the housemates in the final week should all have a separate row. J Di 17:36, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

GA review[edit]

It's well-written, well sourced, and all the images have fair use rationale. I wasn't sure about the charts, but the article does need them. I grant this article GA status. Good work! -- Scorpion 18:49, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

GA revoked[edit]

I have removed this article from the GA list becasue-

  • too much "in-universe" context (eg. Day 43 should be replaced with a real date, such as July 27, or this date should be added into the article with the "Day" also)
  • Some sources are no longer active (eg. 1 and 21) and some do not have all of the necessary fields filled in (eg. 49)
  • there is not 1 reference at all in the lead. Dalejenkins | The Apprentice (UK)'s FA plea-please have your say! 14:08, 26 July 2007 (UTC)
With Big Brother seasons/series referring to something that happened on a certain day like "On Day xx two housemates were nominated for eviction." Is a lot more concise than having this "On June xx ..." Alucard 16 18:31, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

no mention of the geek task in week 2? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:25, 31 August 2007 (UTC)

I don't know if the ratings in the table that's been added and removed were correct, but the only way to get them is by searching the BARB website. It is not possible to link to a specific week or channel, so as long as the information is correct, the reference is also correct. Just wanted to say that because it looked like the reason for removal was that it's not on the link provided - it is but requires searching. –anemoneprojectors– 17:23, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

I have searched, I couldn't find the data. The editor refused to provide an explanation and if a link is provided it should be directly to the data or the data should be readily viewable using the page's menus. I could not find it using year and month. Think "reader" not "wikipedian". Leaky Caldron 17:40, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
If you go to and use year, month and week, you'll find them under Channel 4. That's the way the BARB website works. The data is verifiable. –anemoneprojectors– 17:55, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
I've been getting this message "Your selection will not generate a report. Please choose again." I closed all my browser windows down (Google Chrome) and attempted the search again, which worked. I'll leave a note for the editor. Thanks. Leaky Caldron 18:02, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
No problem :-) –anemoneprojectors– 14:46, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

Nominations Table#Week 7[edit]

Should this not be split into two columns? Aisleyne's vote to evict Jonathan was separate to the regular nominations that week. In the table for BB6, Makosi's vote to evict Kinga is treated as separate to the regular nominations for Week 5. I know the BB7 one is a lot bigger due to it being a longer series but it makes it look as though Aisleyne participated in the regular nominations in Week 7, when her vote for Jonathan was part of a separate eviction.

Why is the BB6 Makosi/Kinga one separate to regular nominations but the BB7 Aisleyne/Jonathan one isn't? Livin'InAGhostTown (talk) 21:28, 3 July 2013 (UTC) I agree, that it will make the table look slightly more packed, but Aisleyne's choice was a different situation to the usual noms, and should be treated as such. the nominations got Lea evicted, but Aisleyne's choice saw Jonathan go.

On Day 1 Bonnie, Pete, George, Shahbaz, Lea, Imogen, Mikey, Dawn, Glynn, Richard, Grace, Lisa, Sezar and Nikki entered the house. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:50, 23 August 2013 (UTC)
