Untitled[edit]

I have to remind you that Wikipedia is a free-information online encyclopedia, not a BBS (see Wikipedia: what Wikipedia is not). So please, don't make the Pinoy Big Brother article look like an advertisment; you don't even have to include the show times. Just the bare facts will do and important info will do. And if you will include more images, make sure that they have permission from the source and is relevant to the topic, not as a cosmetic addition.

Also, please confirm your sources and info first, before you post them.

  • I have listed all the contestant files for merging. If there are going to be photographs and biographies about the Pinoy Big Brother contestants, then I suggest that we follow standard Wikipedia practice: id est, we should not have single articles for Big Brother housemates until they do something more notable than appear on a television show. IINAG, 23:15, August 14 2005
I agree with you, the contestants should be merged here. I already removed one of the images in this article. What do you think that we need to rephrase or remove in the article so that it won't look like an advertisement? --Jojit fb 00:16, 25 August 2005 (UTC)
I already merged it, all the names of the contestants redirect here. --Jojit fb 01:21, 25 August 2005 (UTC)
You have to remind Kevin nico about this because he is the one who unknowingly "violated" the standards and just made articles and added images for cosmetic reasons. In fact, he started the "ad job" in the first place. I had to fix it! As for your question, Jojit fb, so far, none that I can see, except I have to change "Date that voted out the house" to "Date of eviction" becuse it sounded like the house was evicted.- Nanami Kamimura 09:28, August 25, 2005 (UTC)
Yes, I agree with the change. BTW, Orange and Lemons is the correct spelling of that Pinoy rock band see this link. Although, I heard that they got their name from Oranges and Lemons nursery rhyme. --Jojit fb 10:33, 25 August 2005 (UTC)
BTW, we all have talk pages, right? So can you contact him using Kevin nico's talk page? - Nanami Kamimura 00:14, August 27, 2005 (UTC)
Hi Nanami, I already contacted Kevin regarding his (or her?) writing style. --Jojit fb 01:55, 27 August 2005 (UTC)

We all know that every show has to be criticized, so I've added some criticisms about the show. But these are from the Inquirer alone. Do the Philippine Star and the Manila Bulletin have articles criticizing the show, too?—Nanami Kamimura 03:20, August 28, 2005 (UTC)

Some background music tracks used in the show are also based from this song... This line is vague. Please clarify what your are trying to address. 05:01, 24 September 2005 (UTC)~


Housemates Own Article/Page[edit]

  • I took the liberty to create Rico Barrera his own article since he's already evicted in Pinoy Big Brother. In case he became a future actor, in which ABS-CBN promises to, at this moment I suggest Rico Barrera should not be merged with the article Pinoy Big Brother anymore.

Micah 06:52, September 13, 2005 (UTC)

Hope it is ok now to create individual housemates pages?Micah 17:21, 13 October 2005 (UTC)

It depends on how much info you gather about their lives before and after their stay in the house.- 上村七美 23:24, 13 October 2005 (UTC)

Posting Links[edit]

As a reminder, please don't change the names in the list and add links to the links list if it leads to a forum; post a link only if you think it has enough content to be a link.Nanami Kamimura 10:53, 20 September 2005 (UTC)

About the section "Legality of the show: License and Plagiarism"[edit]

Can somebody explain why does somebody have to post that section? Is it reported? Is it known to all of us? Is it relevant to the topic? Or does one have to post this as a militant stand? For now, I decided to hide the section as it may or may not be important, but however posted the section forgot the issue of neutrality here in Wikipedia. - 上村七美 09:39, 6 October 2005 (UTC)

Season 2[edit]

Please state your source below regarding to the information about Pinoy Big Brother Season 2 Mishee 15:38, 7 December 2005 (UTC)

External links[edit]

Should majority of those deserve to be even there? Howard the Duck 15:55, 19 January 2006 (UTC)

The articles are a mess[edit]

And the categories too. THe contestants are categorized both on Category:Pinoy Big Brother and Category:Pinoy Big Brother Contestants. We should have a consensus on this. Howard the Duck 16:58, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

Can anyone make an article for the four winners? By that I mean an article that discusses the winners of each season and edition. LordBelly06 (talk) 15:09, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Not needed, we already have separate articles for the winners so making a list is redundant, especially there are only 4. --Howard the Duck 15:57, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
BTW, Bea's article is badly written (more like a fan article). Can anyone re-edit it to make it NPOV? - 上村七美 (Nanami-chan) | talkback | contribs 01:32, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

I also noticed that PBB2 and PBBCE2 have the "article too long" tag. Can anyone split the articles into sub articles? I don't know how that is done. basically, everything is already written. Someone who knows how to make a new article can do it quickly, I guess. LordBelly06 (talk) 15:46, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

Voluntary Exit = Walked; Forced Eviction = ?[edit]

We all know that because of the concensus, "Walked" is the term used for "voluntary exit." Recently, in the seventh edition of the British version, Big Brother there gave one housemate something that is the equivalent to the "forced eviction"; the term used is "ejected." Can we use "ejected" in the PBB articles? - 上村七美 | talk 12:57, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

Yes. I know that a great majority of BBs all over use identitical rules, except for a chosen few (like the USA). --Howard the Duck 07:10, 10 June 2006 (UTC)

Pinoy Big Brother Table[edit]

Hi! Why'd you delete the Pinoy Big Brother table? While words may be better than pictures (which is true in Western setting), there are numerous researches that demonstrate that Filipinos read more if presented with pictures and summarized collective entities (such as the table). And furthermore, the table is patterned after the Big Brother (TV series) table, cuz' there will be more seasons to watch out, so information is more presented easily on such a medium. Honestly, I see nothing wrong about having the table in the article. -- User:Matthewprc

To you, there's nothing wrong. But to Howard, it is different. You have to understand that Filipinos are not the only users in the English Wikipedia. So don't just stress what is right for you. You should talk to him and have a compromise. For now, your edits will be reverted until that issue is resolved. In fact, you have the wrong info. - 上村七美 | talk 11:41, 13 June 2006 (UTC)
I'm willing to have a table form if it made into an infobox, but not as extensive as those seen in the season article. You can see Big Brother (UK) for an example. --Howard the Duck 07:09, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

On the infobox: Can anyone edit the houseguests' portion for PBBCE2? It's redundant to see the phrase "as houseguest" after Ethel Booba's name as the five names there are already written under Houseguests.LordBelly06 (talk) 15:51, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

Language[edit]

What language is the show broadcast in? If it isn't already mentioned in the article then it should be. FireSpike 20:36, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

HTML comments[edit]

Instead of warning other editors in a HTML comment, it might be better to explain the reason in the article itself. If other editors are having a wrong idea, other readers might also have the same wrong idea, and thus an explanation would improve the article. --cesarb 23:56, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Articles[edit]

Hello everyone. Teen edition will have a second edition soon. Who will be making the MAIN Teen Edition article and the teen edition 2 article? LordBelly06 (talk) 15:21, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

I'll be doing that, but the split will come sometime later, possibly this month. We're not rushing here since it won't come until March or any date that comes up. - 上村七美 (Nanami-chan) | talkback | contribs 10:49, 8 January 2008 (UTC)
Ah, I see. All right. Should the proper name of the Celebrity Edition on the sidebar have the year (2007-2008)? It is currently written with the (2007).LordBelly06 (talk) 14:30, 8 January 2008 (UTC)
It think it's proper since that edition ended on January 8 of this year rather than December 22 of last year as originally planned. You can change the sidebar then. - 上村七美 (Nanami-chan) | talkback | contribs 14:52, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

Pinoy Big Brother House Floor Plans[edit]

Can anyone make the PBB House floor plans for each season? I just browsed through some famous BB articles worldwide, and it seems that some BB articles here in Wikipedia have made those floor plans for their respective BB Houses.LordBelly06 (talk) 06:27, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

So far, even if I know the scale, we don't have any blueprints for the House, even in Season 1. I can make one, but I'm sure it will not be drawn to scale. We have to be precise. - 上村七美 (Nanami-chan) | talkback | contribs 14:06, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
Ah, I understand. Well, some of the drawings made for the other BB's are not as precise. I can't make one since I really don't know how. Anyways, I just thought of it. LordBelly06 (talk) 08:42, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Plus: The Big Reunion[edit]

Where should this section be added? In this main article or in the PBBTEP Article?LordBelly06 (talk) 13:26, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

I was about to do that. But I'll be doing something first. I'll get to it in a while. - 上村七美 (Nanami-chan) | talkback | contribs 13:40, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

hello po im Sucemay Ann Asano,23 years old,dito po ako sa Japan at interesado po akong sumali sa pinoy big brother season 3..gusto ko po sanang malaman kung kailan ang audition,para po makauwi po ako,,sana po ay makasali —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sucemay Ann (talkcontribs) 16:16, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

2009[edit]

Lets update this to include the 2009 seasons --Cooly123 (talk) 20:16, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Viewing figures[edit]

--Cooly123 19:05, 20 September 2009 (UTC)Can someone find information about the rating for any of the shows? It would be a great addition, like most other big brothers. Any reports on Celebrity Ediition 3 airing in 2010?


Controversies section[edit]

i have recently edited this section and for some reason, someone changed it back to the old format. i believe that my edtiting was much cleaner because i categorized it according to series and i updated the list because it hasn't been updated since season 2 (2007). if you find some things that shouldn't be included, just edit/delete some parts but keep the format i did. or instance, the "vote manipulation", it doesn't state to what season it happened. it only stated the date and housemates. --Nicojamesbalde —Preceding undated comment added 10:50, 18 May 2010 (UTC).

Celebrity Edition 3?[edit]

Any news about a celebrity 3?--Cooly123 00:21, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

Renaming page title from "Lucky 7" to "Lucky Season 7"[edit]

We beg you to please change the title of the page article from "Lucky 7" to "Lucky Season 7" as it was advertised many times on television that a "season"is added to the title. And for the links that is connected to the "Lucky 7" page, please make the necessary edits. Thank you. Dalerivera3 (talk) 14:26, 6 July 2016 (UTC)
