I have started to transfer some of the information from my former ID to my new discussion pages.
The following are test pages for the next Malaysian General Elections.
- User talk:Lazybugger13/Testpage1 - Next State Assembly Election Results
- User talk:Lazybugger13/Testpage2 - Next Parliament Elections Results
- User talk:Lazybugger13/Testpage3 - State Assembly Representatives
- User talk:Lazybugger13/Testpage4 - 13th Parliament of Malaysia
- User talk:Lazybugger13/Testpage5 - Party Coalition Breakdown
- User talk:Lazybugger13/Testpage6 - Election Templates
(At this moment I am quite unhappy with the Election tables as they don't contain a lot of information. Right now there is no notes column to state which MP or State Assembly person left/pass away or if it changed hands during a by-election or state election. We should put in extra information on who is the election opponent of the winner of the seat. I know it is going to be lots of work, but I am game for this. My feeling is that the election results should remain as they are and that if there are new updates because of by-elections those should be inserted into different state representative tables)
There were some election tables where it was not clear which BN candidates belong to their respective component parties, especially those from Sabah and Sarawak. My aim is to create separate state assembly tables and a new parliamentary table for the 13th Parliament of Malaysia. Its quite a lot of work, but I am game for this.
Here are the following pages which I got and will use for reference for updating with new election articles with the new table templates designs:
There is going to be a State Assembly election declared in Sarawak sometime in 2011 which I will try to implement using the new design templates. But currently there is talk of the state elections running concurrently with a snap general elections, so I putting this on hold.(Regarding the election in Sarawak in 2011 I did learn a couple of new things. First there were some editors who taught me new ways to format the election summaries and results tables. Secondly I did comparisons of the Sarawak election tables (with extra information) with the Australian general election articles and found out the the Malaysian articles gave a better perspective and understanding to the reader.
I also would like to have polls inserted into Malaysian election articles similar to the US and Australian elections as well.(That might have to wait until I can find different types of pollster organisations. eg Merdeka Centre)
Because of the upcoming delineation exercise in 2014 there might be a number of new seats for both state and parliament constituencies coming up. We might also see some seats being merged which might affect some of electors and election results tables.
Use of your template
I took the liberty to implement your template for the GE13 results to my article "Parlamentswahlen in Malaysia 2013" (General Elections in Malaysia 2013) in the German branch of Wikipedia. I gave the correct credits in the version history. However, the table is still commented out and invisible. Thank you for this good work.

Firstly kudos on the good work. Howver, I have changed the name of the page to something more consistent with title formats as the one that had a capital letter on each word is not WP format. I also merged Members of the Dewan Rakyat, 13th Malaysian Parliament with List of Members of Parliament in the 13th Dewan Negara as the content is the same )(also we don't need thte title to say DR and that it is the Malaysian parliament,(Lihaas (talk) 20:26, 5 May 2013 (UTC)).
Thanks for your hard work adding the state election results.
I note that you removed the total's +/- column as in
Is it because the table is too wide on your browser? I think that column is useful because it shows the changes in the number of seats for each state (and in total).
A barnstar for you!

Use of colours in tables
Hi there. I notice you edit a few tables on the recent Malaysian election results. I appreciate your hard work, but I find the use of colours to be a bit excessive. I know that those background colours help us identify the parties that the candidates represent, but in some cases it makes the text hard to read. There is also inconsistent use of colours.
OK, enough with my style rant. Here are my suggestions:
- Only place
bgcolorat the last column (Party/Coalition).
- Try a (slightly) different colour as in the table on the right, which I base from Help:Using colours.
