July 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Lightsout. I noticed that you made a change to an article, The X Factor (Australia series 6), but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. —Lightsout (talk) 22:53, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi I'm Speartacler, thanks for the the help. If I make a mistake on the page, don't be shy and just correct it, I'm happy with at. Um just a question, I'm assuming if you edit this page you watch the show, is Jessica Mauboy becoming a fifth judge of not, if so how how will we incorporate her on the main page where the table is showing the judges and their categories?

Also would you ever consider changing the names from "Under 25 Boys" & "Under 25 Girls", to just "Boys" or "Girls", just asking not a request? I always supported the name "Under 25" until last year when they changed it to "Under 24"

Yes, I watch the show and I edit all the X Factor Australia-related articles. I don't think there's going to be a fifth judge. The first bootcamp episode of the current season revealed that Jessica is going to be a guest mentor for the home visits round. "Boys" & "Girls" is short for "Under 25 Boys" & "Under 25 Girls", just like "Overs" is short for "Over 25s". I think it's better to use the full names of these categories. —Lightsout (talk) 05:16, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Okay all good, Yeah and I wasn't Sure about Jessica Mauboy as there had been reports she's a judge, and they said there's a wildcard this year. does that mean she's mentoring a wildcard category, or do each of the orginal judges choose an act to come back to live shows?

I don't know. We'll just have to wait and see. —Lightsout (talk) 23:21, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Hey, in the table with the judges and their categories, I don't like how the boy band 'Younger Than Yesterday' is taking up two lines, is there a way we can did this, because I've tried making Dannii's column bigger but it won't let me.

I'm not sure which table you're talking about. The table in The X Factor (Australian TV series) or the table at The X Factor (Australia series 6)? —Lightsout (talk) 22:15, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

The X Factor Australia (main page) table/chart that show the judges and their categories, Dannii's column is too long as 'Younger a Than Yesterday' is taking up two lines

I think that's because there's four names in her column while the others only have three names each. —Lightsout (talk) 05:04, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

November 2014[edit]

Information icon Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at The Apprentice (U.S. season 6). Your edits appear to be disruptive and have been reverted or removed.

  • If you are engaged in an article content dispute with another editor then please discuss the matter with the editor at their talk page, or the article's talk page. Alternatively you can read Wikipedia's dispute resolution page, and ask for independent help at one of the relevant notice boards.
  • If you are engaged in any other form of dispute that is not covered on the dispute resolution page, please seek assistance at Wikipedia's Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents.

Please ensure you are familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, and please do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive, until the dispute is resolved through consensus. Continuing to edit disruptively could result in loss of editing privileges. Thank you. Musdan77 (talk) 03:52, 20 November 2014 (UTC)

Can you explain to me what I was doing wrong by editing the apprentice pages. I fixed them as some stupid other person deleted the colour on everything and I don't know why they did that.
What was wrong with the way I was editing, can you please explain as I would like to know as I don't want to do it again? Speartackler, thanks
Speartackler, I always give an edit summary (and you really should too), and have given a link to the MOS explaining the proper use of bold type, and keep having to revert/remove them. Now, it's one thing for the first column of a table to be bold, but the other columns should not -- especially when they are already color coded. Also, wikilinks shouldn't be bolded. If you have any more questions, let me know. --Musdan77 (talk) 18:36, 20 November 2014 (UTC)

Sorry I don't mean to annoy you but I still don't understand why the 'team names' and 'chart codes' can't be bold? Sorry. But if it's bold doesn't it look better and give a good indication to another viewer about the winning and losing project managers and who's fired?

Hi, I didn't realize you had made another post before. I goofed and gave you the wrong link. Here's the MOS. Too much bold can be hard on the eyes -- at least for some people. The team columns already have colored backgrounds. Making them bold is kind of like bolding a word that's in all caps -- it's just over the top. As for "indications", check out Dancing with the Stars (U.S. season 3)#Judges.27 scoring summary as an example. It says, "Bold numbers indicate that the entire score board was tied." So, because it indicates what the bold is for, I won't remove those. I hope that helps. --Musdan77 (talk) 23:33, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
