Runner Ups[edit]

So I noticed that someone re-added a runner-up section to the template. I removed that section a few months ago, and I feel like the logic there was valid, but I thought it might be best to talk it out, see if people really had any good reasons why they thought it should be kept. :)

The main issue with it for me is that not every runner up on the show has their own article, yet not listing them gives a false impression of that seasons results. For example, if we list Alaska as a runner-up, we really should be listing Roxxxy Andrews too, or else it would seem to appear that Alaska was the only runner up in that season. However at the same time, I don't think it's worth including Roxxxy's name when she doesn't have an article of her own. (And as a minor spin-off, I felt like it gave the wrong impression when the list of winners currently stands at 7 (including Chad Michaels), and the runner-up list by coincidence also has 7 people on it.)

In addition, I feel like including a partial list of runners up really isn't all that neccesary, especially when there's a "notable contestants" template out there too, and a direct link to a list of contestants on the main RPDR template. Most other reality shows only include winners in their templates, and as the seasons go by, that list is just going to get bigger and bigger, making the template larger than it needs to be.

My personal belief is that we should just flat out remove the line, and keep the notable contestants template going. Failing that, I feel like the only way to do a runner-up line correctly would be to include a full list, including the runner-up contestants that don't have their own article.(Kyleofark (talk) 00:20, 15 May 2015 (UTC))

Miss Congeniality[edit]

Why isn't Ivy Winters and Cynthia Lee Fontaine on the list of Miss C winners? They clearly won it so why aren't they on there. I try to put it on there but it won't appear on the template. Someone please put them on there. It doesn't make sense why they are the only ones not on there. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Starbucks6789 (talkcontribs) 00:19, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

As User:Azealia911 said, infoboxes are for quick navigation, not actual reporting of information. Oath2order (talk) 03:27, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

But you didn't really answer my question. Is there a specific reason why Ivy Winters and Cynthia Lee Fontaine aren't on the Miss C list? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Starbucks6789 (talkcontribs) 13:14, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

They don't have pages. Oath2order (talk) 19:59, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

So what? They still won Miss C so they should be on that list. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Starbucks6789 (talkcontribs) 23:12, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

The point of a navigation template is to link to relevant pages, not provide information. Oath2order (talk) 23:14, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
@ Please do not add Cynthia Lee Fontaine and Ivy Winters to this template; they do not have pages. Oath2order (talk) 21:14, 4 October 2016 (UTC)

Why not separate All-Stars winners with the winners every regular season?[edit]


I clearly understand the reason behind separating both the regular and the All-Stars seasons, as they are separate shows produced and aired by World of Wonder and Logo/VH1 respectively. If that is the case, why don't we separate the winners from the regular and All-Stars seasons as well? This is to clearly distinguish the winners from the regular and All-Stars seasons in the same way as we see both regular and All-Stars seasons. In addition, even non-RPDR fans who choose to navigate the infobox will find out at a glance who won each season respectively. What do you think?
