Your Country Needs You (2009)[edit]

Hey. At the moment I dislike the current elimination chart for 'Your Country Needs You (2009)'. I think it is far too big, some of rows are bigger than others and it should be much more symplified. My table is very similar to the tables used in the Idol related articles. It clearly points out the lowest vote recipients and who was eliminated. The use of the phrase 'Danger Zone' will confuse people when mine labels the contestants in the 'Danger Zone' as 'Btm 2' which they were. Ugly? no... Maybe the grey rows after the 'Eliminated' boxes look a bit ugly but we can get rid of them... Frazzler9 (talk) 16:01, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

The current table is very easy to read which is facilitated by the fact that it is not jumbled up. Maybe you have a widescreen monitor which is clouding your judgment? Also your proposed color scheme is very bold. The current table also is consistent with that of the table used for the actual show and consistency for the show is what we are aiming for, not consistency between similar Idol shows.

Let me just revert your edit and try and make my table look more appealing Frazzler9 (talk) 16:09, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
See! This looks like it can breathe now. Jumbled up? no... Consistant with the table used for the actual show? On the show they never showed an elimination table and there are no other elimination tables for competitions on this article Frazzler9 (talk) 16:15, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
The current table looks pretty much identical to the original now if I am not mistaken. There was a copy of the table in the main article but it has been removed. Camaron | Chris (talk) 16:34, 23 April 2009 (UTC)


Is this list needed really? A lot of information is included in the main Song for Europe article, while the rest is contained within the individual years articles. Deletion or perhaps just strictly a list of artsists?--Tuzapicabit (talk) 07:41, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

@Tuzapicabit: I agree with you, I think this article should be deleted. Everything within it is summarised at United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest as well as at all the respective annual articles within Category:United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest, not to mention Eurovision: Your Country Needs You. Everything on this article is just duplicated material. @CT Cooper:, what do you think? Should this be filed under D for delete?   Wes Mouse | chat  03:21, 23 October 2014 (UTC)
