Did You Know A fact from this article appeared on Wikipedia's Main Page in the "Did you know?" column on October 28, 2009.


The images along the right-hand side of the page are great. Perhaps winners should be pictured for each season, if possible. If not, the runner-up or highest-ranking competitor with a decent image available. --Another Believer (Talk) 02:39, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

I like the idea of picturing winners, but the double images make for too much white space along the right-hand side of the page plus too much text wrapping within the table itself. --Another Believer (Talk) 16:04, 4 November 2011 (UTC)
Not a prob. I'll take the double-image coding out but leave them as only featuring winners. Sottolacqua (talk) 16:19, 4 November 2011 (UTC)
Sounds good. Sorry for the revert--I was not sure if it was more work to convert the double images to a single column or to revert and replace the images and captions. --Another Believer (Talk) 16:23, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Pairings with professional partners[edit]

Is the "Pairings with professional partners" table even necessary? The sortable list already displays partners as well as color coding for winners, runners-up and third-place contestants. --Another Believer (Talk) 15:52, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

Please stop adding and deleting columns of the chart. This should be discussed rather than going back and forth. Please add comments below re: recent changes to image column, chart columns, statistics, sources tag, etc. --Another Believer (Talk) 21:33, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

The overly detailed statistics fall under WP:NOT#STATS and are unreferenced. This topic was also opened for discussion in the parent article. Sottolacqua (talk) 21:35, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
I agree that so many statistics is unnecessary (and unreferenced). Also, I prefer the inclusion of the image column. --Another Believer (Talk) 21:38, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
