I've worked hard to try and improve the article over the past few weeks but it still looks like a mess. There's not enough clear and concise info. OK, maybe the series synopsis for the series 1 page needs condensing, and the episode synopsis' need a bit more, and the character pages need a bit of sorting out or merging and the premise & production & review section on this main page need more info (and not to mention, a sub-list for series 2 on the episodes page). If anyone else who is familiar with the series can help and pitch in, feel free to do so. Emirates123 (talk) 20:22, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

I propose that List of The Dumping Ground characters be merged into The Dumping Ground. I think that the content in the List of The Dumping Ground characters article can easily be explained in the context of The Dumping Ground, and the The Dumping Ground article is of a reasonable size that the merging of List of The Dumping Ground characters will not cause any problems as far as article size or undue weight is concerned. Currently The Dumping Ground is at 15 Kb and the character articles is at 6 Kb, combined together with removing duplication would have the article at 20 Kb, well below even the lowest threshold at WP:TOOBIG. The character article has one reference about the series itself winning an award and could be deleted or merged if taken to an AfD and probably only has two incoming links from the parent article and List of Tracy Beaker series characters, but that is hard to tell since the character article is also in Template:Tracy Beaker series.

  • Oppose - The Dumping Ground is big enough which is why I moved it over in the first place, It's the norm to move these over especially they grow which this has done, As for it being unsourced - I'll get around to it in the next 2/3 weeks. –Davey2010Talk 17:26, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

Hyperlink 5 and Scheduling information[edit]

The paragraph relating to [5] claims that the next two series won't be shown until 2021 and 2022. However, the article it relates to makes no reference to those dates, and there appears to be no source for those dates either. If this cannot be referenced then it is false information and should be deleted accordingly — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:C7D:D401:5B00:288C:7C3B:9FEC:5C6 (talk) 02:10, 13 February 2017 (UTC)
