A cheeseburger for you![edit]

Cheeseburger.png For reverting a dumb mistake that I did on the 2012 article (not the movie). Guess I rushed in too quickly without knowing it. I give you this cheeseburger. Damirgraffiti |☺Say Yo to Me!☺ 06:59, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your share and I did well on giving updates with 2012/2013 stuff. ApprenticeFan work 08:50, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

The Bachelor/ette[edit]

Um... I hate to be rude, but can you fix all bachelor/ette tables on what you did to them. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:48, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

I have had a good job on reimproving the tables in every season of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. The call-out order is use during rose ceremony, except those contestants who were eliminated outside of rose ceremony such as not receiving a rose date. ApprenticeFan work 23:50, 5 January 2013 (UTC)


Please try to use neutral terms when referring to members of the cast. "YouTube sensations" is a bit much. Also avoid trivia, even if the sources say so.—Ryulong (琉竜) 16:01, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

The locations were only dropped for season 22 there was no reason to remove them from the season 21 article. The locations are included in the photo galleries on season 21. I cannot find any such information on season 22. In the future, do not take actions on other articles just because I make them on another article.—Ryulong (琉竜) 02:36, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

When you update the article, add the damn detour and roadblock task descriptions.—Ryulong (琉竜) 11:10, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Again. When you post a new leg give the Detour and Roadblock info.—Ryulong (琉竜) 04:57, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

Would you just put in Roadblock and Detour information already? I've been asking you to do this for a month now. You obviously post the places they travel to but why the hell are you not adding the Detour information or the Roadblock information or the Speed Bump information? Why is it that I am the one who is left to add all this shit in hours after it airs and only after I manage to find a way to watch it half way around the world. This is a simple request and you have yet to explain to me why you are not fulfilling it.—Ryulong (琉竜) 03:27, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

First of all, I apologize on this and I wrote the summary in every leg during U.S. East Coast broadcast and I can't watch the live stream due to my internet's slow speed. ApprenticeFan work 12:11, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

The PROD at America's Next Top Model: All-Stars[edit]

Hi! I wrote a note at the articles talk page as an uninvolved editor. The PROD has been removed from the article and it is not in danger. Please realize that editors are allowed to PROD articles, even if the PROD is not exactly accurate. The other editor involved in this has done nothing wrong. Editors are allowed to make mistakes. No harm occurred. If he had gone through and PROD'd every top Model article, then possibly you would be correct to assume bad faith. But please remember, one of the guiding principles here at Wikipedia is we always assume good faith. You have not been harmed in any way. The PROD was place on the article, not directed at you personally. Yet you seem to be taking it very personally. In actuality, the only one that has done anything wrong here is you, in that you have said things that could be considered personal attacks on the other editor. Again, he only said he didn't think the article was notable. He said nothing about you. But you have said a few things about him. Please just drop it. I wouldn't want to see anyone get blocked over this. Have a cup of tea, walk the dog... whatever you do to get your mind off things. This is a minor bump in the road and will probably have no consequences for anyone. Just let it go, please. Gtwfan52 (talk) 09:08, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

Edit warring on The Amazing Race 22[edit]

Hi, I just want to let you know that you are just as guilty of edit warring as the IP user you are edit warring with. Edit warring is edit warring regardless of who is right unless one party's edits are clear-cut vandalism or a BLP violation. In this case neither yours nor the IP editor's edits fall into either of those categories. Also neither of you has engaged in discussing this matter on the talk page.

I'm not going to template warn you; however, please consider this message an official "warning" for edit warring per the requirement at WP:ANEW. I should also note that your report there will likely turn into a case of WP:BOOMERANG. —KuyaBriBriTalk 13:35, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

The problem was I put the magenta schwa (ə) icon on the results table of the said article yesterday. I am right on putting the icon and don't have ownership rights on the article. So, I'll take a chance for my manner on article edits and sorry for my bad problems. Done right now. ApprenticeFan work 15:01, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
In all honesty I'm fine with your preferred version; however, in the future please use the talk page to establish consensus instead of edit summaries. And please remember what I said above about edit warring and WP:BOOMERANG. Cheers, —KuyaBriBriTalk 15:22, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

Odd request[edit]

Hello, in my routine patrol of CAT:ESP I noticed that an IP user placed an {{edit semi-protected}} request for your semi-protected user subpage User:ApprenticeFan/SkyCable Channels. I have no idea why an IP user would want to request permission to edit your user subpage, but the IP does geolocate to the Philippines, which I understand from previous contact with you is where you are located as well. The request is empty, and can be found at User talk:ApprenticeFan/SkyCable Channels. Feel free to tag it with {{db-user}} if you feel it is appropriate. Cheers, —KuyaBriBriTalk 15:07, 8 March 2013 (UTC)


Hello. I need your help with something. I see that you've been making these Amazing Race maps lately. This being an example --> .
Can you pliss pliss pliss make one for me or at least teach me how to make one? It's for a indian reality show MTV Roadies which features contestants traveling from one part of India to another to perform challenges designed according to the location. It's very similar to The Amazing Race. With four legs in place the route is Delhi → Kohima → Mokokchung → Jorhat. The journey ends in Tawang. Pliss Pliss Pliss Help me. :P -- I'm Titanium  chat 09:51, 17 March 2013 (UTC)


I refractored your RfD because in your comments and everyone else's the request was

but you wrote it as

but in your comments said it should point to Georgia. Apteva (talk) 02:27, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 25[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Kelly Evans, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Cross country (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

TAR issues[edit]

We have not given the specific cities that the airports are located in for a while now. Why are you insisting that we list Dulles for Washington Dulles when it serves DC and that's where they went? Also, we have always listed America as "USA" in the final leg. Why have you changed it on every page?—Ryulong (琉竜) 02:20, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

Washington Dulles Airport is a half-hour or one hour west of Washington D.C. city proper. The nearest airport in DC is Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (known as Washington-National or Washington-Reagan), which is close in that city. Both of these DC airports are in Virgina, but located in different countries of that Commonwealth. ApprenticeFan work 03:53, 6 May 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, but we have consistently ignored any such discrepancies in the actual location of these airports. In recent years, when the teams are in Tokyo we don't say they landed in Narita, Chiba. It's Tokyo.—Ryulong (琉竜) 14:40, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

Stop instituting fixes across multiple pages just because something similar was done in season 22's page.—Ryulong (琉竜) 17:03, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Join discussion on Talk:Angie Miller (American singer)[edit]

Hey, you've edited Angie Miller's article. Just looking for some input on the discussion page. I would be glad if you could join the discussion. Thank you. -- ipodnano05 * leave@message 02:23, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Also, I'm pretty sure Ryan did announce that Angie was in the Top 2 during the first Top 4 week. He separated Angie with Kree and Amber with Candice. It's not a big deal, because that week you were either in the Bottom 2 or the Top 2, but everybody was safe, so I think it's worth mentioning that she was in the Top 2. -- ipodnano05 * leave@message 02:23, 14 May 2013 (UTC)


How do you know that the last civs of the Brave New World expansion are Sioux and Venice? And how do you know the full list of city-states? (talk) 09:38, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

RE: Rename the season articles of The Amazing Race franchise[edit]

I took a look at the proposal and comments, and I must say that I tend to agree with the opposition suggesting that these titles (The Amazing Race X) are in a sense season titles on their own. With that in mind, on top of the fact that the editors who commented were divided in their opinions, I'd prefer not to make this adjustment until a clearer decision is made. Sorry, WikiRedactor (talk) 21:22, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, don't do this. The seasons are clearly named "The Amazing Race X".—Ryulong (琉竜) 09:05, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

I might cry[edit]

I just spent a half hour writing out the remaining tribes on the Survivor players page only to find out there was an edit conflict.. because you had just done the same thing! Can't believe that just happened. But at least it's done :P Gloss • talk 07:59, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

List of Survivor (U.S. TV series) tribes[edit]

Just wondering, did you have sources for that section you just added or were you not planning on adding any? Gloss • talk 15:29, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

2013-2014 redundancy[edit]

Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia. Not a personal time keeper or calender. Adding stuff like, The year has ended in Asia, Africa, Europe, South America, most of Oceania and parts of North America, but is still ongoing in western North America, and Oceanian countries east of the International Date Line." Is extremly redundant and against wikipedia rules. I suggest you read WP:ISNOT before making anymore edits.-- (talk) 11:21, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

The Bachelor 18[edit]

Hi. Where did you find out that Vitoria, the Brazilian one, is from Porto Alegre? I could only find she's a Brazilian from Boca Raton, Florida. Thanks. MachoCarioca (talk) 02:24, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

According to the ABC website, she is originally from Porto Alegre and currently resides in Boca Raton. ApprenticeFan work 09:10, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

Ok, thank you. MachoCarioca (talk) 09:05, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Survivor-related discussion[edit]

Hi there! I've noticed you're a regular contributor to Survivor articles, so I thought I'd let you know about a proposal I've made over at Talk: Survivor (U.S. TV series). I'd love to have your input about it! Survivorfan1995 (talk) 02:59, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

Amazing Race[edit]

The autonomous regions of Spain do not count in the same manner as the special administrative regions of China or the insular areas of the United States. Please do not make them unique.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 05:44, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Alright. As it seems in the current season. And why they never mentioned in TAR24 article that Guangdong is the administrative province in the city of Guangzhou. It just does not simply to not have Guangdong in the race summary. ApprenticeFan work 08:54, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

Also, don't be pedantic when it comes to the locations of airports. It doesn't matter if KLIA is not in metropolitan KL, much like it doesn't matter both of the airports that serve Tokyo are in Chiba.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 09:40, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

I know, KLIA is not actually in metropolitan KL (Federal Territory) and its actually at Selangor state, similarly to Tokyo's Narita International Airport, which is in Chiba and Incheon's Incheon International Airport, which both serves Seoul and Incheon. Can you please change the airport serving city of KLIA to its airport city (Kuala Lumpur rather than the location of Sepang) in all The Amazing Race pages. ApprenticeFan work 10:05, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
Very well then. You could have just done it yourself for the handful of times they went to KL.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 13:35, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

Hell's Kitchen contestant progress[edit]

Thanks for adding back the Ramsay quotes at the end of the episode for Hell's Kitchen (U.S. season 8). I wanted to check if my tweaks to the contestant progress legend was okay, as the previous one was rather wordy. Ramsay does all the eliminations anyway. -AngusWOOF (talk) 04:42, 29 March 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Park Ju Hee[edit]

A tag has been placed on Park Ju Hee requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G6 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an orphaned disambiguation page which either

  • disambiguates two or fewer extant Wikipedia pages and whose title ends in "(disambiguation)" (i.e., there is a primary topic); or
  • disambiguates no (zero) extant Wikipedia pages, regardless of its title.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such pages may be deleted at any time. Please see the disambiguation page guidelines for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Boleyn (talk) 16:43, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of List of The Amazing Race Canada contestants[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article List of The Amazing Race Canada contestants has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This appears to be a list of non-notable individuals, most if not all of whom would fall under WP:BLP1E. See also Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate collection of information. The sources also fail WP:RS.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
