20 contestants[edit]

I thought about this: there will be 20 contestants in Dancing with the Stars Season 13. --67.81.194.190 (talk) 01:27, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

Do you have a source? --MSalmon (talk) 08:42, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
Here's a source that says it's going to be 12: http://www.puredancingwiththestars.com/2011/08/29/are-you-more-excited-for-the-dwts-season-13-pros-or-dwts-season-13-stars/#comment-32750 Although the rumor that there will be 20 is floating around somewhere. Might be from a couple seasons ago.
It will be 12 (says so on official website) --MSalmon (talk) 18:22, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Whoever thinks there will be 20 couples this season is wrong, let it go and stop trying to add false information to the wiki. CoolDudeAl (talk) 18:16, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

The article needs semi protecting as I have to keep removing the extra names --MSalmon (talk) 15:45, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

video Confirmed Contestants?[edit]

Do we want to update the Elizabetta Canalis and Ron Artest "rumor" to confirmed since they were see on this paparazzi video at the DWTS rehearsal studios? http://www.puredancingwiththestars.com/2011/08/28/dancing-with-the-stars-val-chmerkovskiy-elizabetta-canalis-and-ron-artest-going-into-rehearsal-studio-video/ — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.193.248.157 (talk) 18:06, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Ron Artest/Metta World Peace[edit]

He should be listed as Ron Artest as that's the name he is competing under per ABC's official site. CoolDudeAl (talk) 23:35, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

Week 3[edit]

Since they are telling a story about a year in their life, shouldn't we list a brief description somewhere on the page about the event?--Cooly123 14:51, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

Week 9[edit]

For the semi-final week, couples have to perform the Argentine Tango and the Salsa. --Plankton5165 (talk) 23:30, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Does anyone know the name of the song that Rick and Derek danced their Argentine Tango to? Tyler george6 (talk) 03:34, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Call-out Order[edit]

I had noticed someone remove the call-out order for this season. I had no idea why it disappeared, but it has to come back, right now! --Plankton5165 (talk) 01:01, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

It was removed in this edit http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Dancing_with_the_Stars_%28U.S._season_13%29&action=historysubmit&diff=459282153&oldid=459175509 --Mjrmtg (talk) 01:41, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
I wouldn't even bother re-adding the call out order because I will just remove it again, if you want to find out the order go to a website and that will tell you, not here. --MSalmon (talk) 12:18, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

The removal of the Call out Order was complete BS. If thats the case, then we should just take down this entire article because to get the dances and score we can just go to abc.com, no need for a Wikipedia Page. It needs to come back! Tyler george6 (talk) 18:59, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

To the person who threatens that they will take down the call out order, I have it saved to a word document and will continue to put it back on there if you keep deleting it.. Tyler george6 (talk) 04:03, 9 November 2011 (UTC)
This is an encyclopedia not a fansite, the call out order is useless trivia that has no place in the article. --MSalmon (talk) 09:38, 9 November 2011 (UTC)
The call out order is not needed as it does not in any way affect the result of the show, and is purely trivial information that would barely interest the majority of fans, let alone those who might just decide to look at the article. –anemoneprojectors– 14:40, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
Whoever keeps readding the call out order it is not needed as it is pure trivia and does not affect the result in any way, so please stop. --MSalmon (talk) 12:18, 17 November 2011 (UTC)

Best/Worst Performances[edit]

It should be noted that Hope Solo's worst performance is no longer the Jive she performed in week two (19 points), since she got a better score for the Jive in week 8 (25). Her new lowest-scoring dance is the Rumba (with 20 points). I felt the need to point this out since someone keeps changing it after I keep changing it back to the Rumba.

Performed but not scored[edit]

I think the following eliminated couples will perform a specific dance 74.105.182.64 (talk) 14:58, 19 November 2011 (UTC):

  • Hope & Maks - Quickstep
  • Nancy & Tristan - Foxtrot
  • David & Kym - Rumba
  • Chaz & Lacey - Samba
  • Carson & Anna - Tango
  • Chynna & Tony - Rumba
  • Kristin & Mark - Quickstep
  • Elisabetta & Val - Cha-Cha-Cha
  • Metta & Peta - Cha-Cha-Cha

Scoring Chart Ricki and Derek Week 10: 84 points[edit]

In the scoring chart, after three performances, Ricki and Derek scored 84, which was not the lowest score after three performances. Therefore, I don't think the 84 should be red. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 97.86.233.180 (talk) 05:45, 24 November 2011 (UTC)

Changes to the Ballroom[edit]

Because this was the first season with the new ballroom. Why don't you talk about some of the changes to the set. Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.165.133.17 (talk) 8:09, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

Colour contrast problems[edit]

It seems that this article is using colours in the infobox which don't satisfy Wikipedia's accessibility guidelines. The contrast between the foreground colour and the background colour is low, which means that it may be difficult or impossible for people with visual impairments to read it.

To correct this problem, a group of editors have decided to remove support for invalid colours from Template:Infobox television season and other television season templates after 1 September 2015. If you would still like to use custom colours for the infobox and episode list in this article after that date, please ensure that the colours meet the WCAG AAA standard.

To test whether a colour combination is AAA-compliant you can use Snook's colour contrast tool. If your background colour is dark, then please test it against a foreground colour of "FFFFFF" (white). If it is light, please test it against a foreground colour of "000000" (black). The tool needs to say "YES" in the box for "WCAG 2 AAA Compliant" when you input the foreground and the background colour. You can generally make your colour compliant by adjusting the "Value (%)" fader in the middle box.

Please be sure to change the invalid colour in every place that it appears, including the infobox, the episode list, and the series overview table. If you have any questions about this, please ask on Template talk:Infobox television season. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 05:30, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
