Should Ultimate Big Brother to be added to this? (talk) 14:48, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

Why is every series on this template?[edit]

This template is too big, I made the effort to create separate lists, but for some reason it gets reverted (??) If there is going to be two series each year, then it's just going to get bigger and bigger. A large template is fine for regular Big Brother housemates, as there are not that many who have articles of their own, but all Celebrity reality shows have their own separate template for each series, I'm a Celeb has had 12 series, which is the same as Celebrity Big Brother will have this time next month, so why are the rules different for Celeb BB?

I left you some comments on my talk page, and I'm happy for you to revert me. This template should still exist for the list of CBB housemates page, but I have an idea. –anemoneprojectors– 08:43, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
Actually I don't think size is an issue at this time. We could have up to 30 series and this template's size would still be fine. For example, Template:Doctor Who is a large template and it's fine. I'd like to find a way to include all housemates but have hidden sections or drop downs so all the information can be accessed from a single template. I'm going to try some ideas in my userspace. –anemoneprojectors– 09:07, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
I couldn't come up with any ideas that worked very well, but I still say the size of this isn't a problem, and it's quite helpful to have all the housemates in one navbox instead of multiple. –anemoneprojectors– 09:10, 23 August 2013 (UTC)
I have now come up with a solution that means that only this one template is required, but only one series' housemates will be shown on each article if that is what is required. –anemoneprojectors– 21:35, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
