Souli Roots[edit]

How do you know she's not at Judges' houses? Bootcamp for the overs isn't until tomorrow. –anemoneprojectors– 21:23, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

Because she was sent home --MSalmon (talk) 21:24, 28 September 2013 (UTC)
Never mind, I'm watching on +1 and saw online that tonight was just the girls. But I'm now watching the overs, so she obviously didn't get through. –anemoneprojectors– 21:29, 28 September 2013 (UTC)
Yes, it was the Girls and part of the Over 25s that was on tonight --MSalmon (talk) 21:31, 28 September 2013 (UTC)
I was slightly misled by what I read. Not to worry :-) –anemoneprojectors– 21:36, 28 September 2013 (UTC)
Thats ok --MSalmon (talk) 21:36, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

Big Brother[edit]

Can you stop reverting my edit? The space left in that column is very awkward. — Preceding unsigned comment added by King1559 (talkcontribs) 20:50, 13 October 2013 (UTC)

The width of the column doesn't matter, as long as the text is all on one line --MSalmon (talk) 20:52, 13 October 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for October 21[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Strictly Come Dancing (series 11), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Dancing in the Dark (song) (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.

FYI[edit]

Just thought you'd want to know that one of your IP fans posted a comment to Talk:Timeline of Google Street View posing as you (made it look like a typical signature), which Sinebot then signed because he/she didn't put the four tildes. Don't worry, I reverted the edits. Paris1127 (talk) 16:42, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, didn't see it because I was at work --MSalmon (talk) 18:04, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

Hello! :)[edit]

May I ask how do we leave comment when we edit? Like how you leave comment when you edited my post? ~XFactor123 — Preceding unsigned comment added by XFactor123 (talkcontribs) 12:10, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

Just type it in the box below where it says Edit Summary --MSalmon (talk) 12:30, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
Oh Thank You very Much :) Please update the 'U.S Rating', they are all messed up! ~XFactor123 — Preceding unsigned comment added by XFactor123 (talkcontribs) 13:20, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! (UK series 11)[edit]

Hi. You said that "it was Crissy and Mark in the bottom two on 18 not Crissy and Willie" but the table shows Willie was 5th in the vote, not Mark. Does this mean that the figures quoted in the table are wrong (the reference is dead so I can't check) or that the two people Ant and Dec said "it could be you" to, weren't the two that were actually in the bottom two? If so, the key is wrong. Just wanted to clarify as it doesn't add up. –anemoneprojectors– 21:36, 11 December 2013 (UTC)

The table that I have changed it to now is correct (I have the figures in an Excel spreadsheet) --MSalmon (talk) 22:01, 11 December 2013 (UTC)
You didn't answer my question. Does it mean that Mark wasn't in the bottom two of the vote that week, but was he called out as "it might be you"? Because if it does, the key is wrong. –anemoneprojectors– 11:30, 12 December 2013 (UTC)
He was in the bottom two as indicated in the "bottom two" row on the table --MSalmon (talk) 11:36, 12 December 2013 (UTC)
The term "bottom two" implies that he received the lowest votes. The table shows someone else received the lowest votes. I changed the note in the key, because he didn't receive the second lowest number of votes. Why do we (on Wikipedia) call it the bottom two, when it's not always the official bottom two? Do we know why they sometimes call out someone else? –anemoneprojectors– 16:08, 12 December 2013 (UTC)
You can change the key but nothing else --MSalmon (talk) 16:11, 12 December 2013 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Same as Crissy in the second vote, and others possibly in that year and definitely in other years. What's being called the bottom two on Wikipedia isn't always the people with the fewest votes, so it's not the bottom two. It should be renamed, shouldn't it? –anemoneprojectors– 16:12, 12 December 2013 (UTC)
To what though? --MSalmon (talk) 16:13, 12 December 2013 (UTC)
I just spotted that series 13 has an "NB", explaining it. I don't know if it's on all of them because I haven't checked. The Daily Mirror called it the bottom two so as at least one reliable source call it then we don't need to change it - I had assumed Wikipedians decided. Though I don't recall anyone on the programme saying that the "bottom two" doesn't reflect the votes, and people probably assume that it always does and it could easily affect the votes. I might complain to Ofcom ;-) –anemoneprojectors– 16:23, 12 December 2013 (UTC)
Ok, that's fine then --MSalmon (talk) 16:25, 12 December 2013 (UTC)
Added a note to series 11, the first year where the "bottom two" didn't always follow the vote. Series 12 and 13 already have these notes. That's that sorted then! –anemoneprojectors– 16:31, 12 December 2013 (UTC)
Ok cool, will add the camp saviour vote on the "reults and elimination" table later tonight. --MSalmon (talk) 17:56, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

CBB 2013[edit]

Just noticed the spat you're having with 2.30.20.205 over number of nominations. Have to say I think he's right and you're wrong. To say that Casey and Lee have zero nominations implies that it was possible for them to be nominated but did not receive any when, in fact, they were not eligible for nominations so n/a would, to me, seem to be correct.--The Totter 02:58, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

So what that Casey and Lee were not eligible to be nominated, it is explained in the notes, and anyway they are returning to the house tonight (10 January) so they are eligible to be nominated --MSalmon (talk) 14:03, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
No – returning to the house yes but they're not eligible to be nominated for eviction tonight, which was the point of your spat.--The Totter 15:33, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
Why did you revert it then change it back to zero? --MSalmon (talk) 15:45, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
Surely not having the chance to receive any nominations means that stating it as none applicable shows that they couldn't have got any. Whilst 0 suggests that they haven't received any at all. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.30.20.205 (talk) 22:54, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
I think you are missing the point here, they were still housemates when they were living in the Bolt Hole even though could not be nominated, but now they are back in the house it can be left as 0 --MSalmon (talk) 22:58, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

But they still have not gone through a nominations process, meaning that they haven't got 0, because they didn't receive no nominations. They were in the Bolt Hole, making them not eligible to be nominated. Therefore it should be N/A. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.30.20.205 (talk) 08:03, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

They will go through it tomorrow --MSalmon (talk) 11:12, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

But they haven't gone through it yet. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.30.20.205 (talk) 14:50, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

No but they will tomorrow, anyway the page is semi-protected now so you won't be able to edit it unless you create an account--MSalmon (talk) 14:54, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

Howdy, have added Day 11's doings but in doing so managed to bugger up the formatting. Could you be a dear and fix it please? Thanks.--The Totter 01:49, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Seems fine to me --MSalmon (talk) 10:21, 15 January 2014 (UTC)
