OK, few ideas to fix results table to a better look:

  1. Call of "st, nd", and left only numbers inside.
  2. Use background color to determine the elimination, FF, etc, such as this:
India Neena & Amit Cousins 10 Neena 0, Amit 0
     Team was eliminated

Explain: Wikilink in "10" is help color blind people to determine what it mean, that mean when user clicking it, it will go to the colorbox.

OK, i just provide my idea, please determine whether to use it or not. Thank you. --Aleenf1 10:47, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
Looks good, but i think should attain consensus. BTW, can you create this month's newsletter using the template? Shapiros10 contact meMy work 19:06, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

No, i'm not familiar in creating newsletter. You can do it, i think. More consensus needed:

  1. Whether to use table (create in templates) to list the location for more tidy, the queue is:
    The repeat word can be waive and save multi million article space.
  2. Whether to re-queue the leg's summary, from early task to final task, including additional task, and call-off the bullet list for additional task.

I hope the consensus can be determine as quick as possible before TAR13 start. Thank you. --Aleenf1 14:09, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

The current usage of small to big (in locations) is OK. Big to small will be redundant.

For example, since country is included in main heading, there is no need to include it again in the list. Also, more common English usage is (location), (city/town), (country). It is thus better to retain current usage. Aeron Valderrama (talk) 12:05, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Table of Contents[edit]

Just thinking...would it be nice to have a link in the Table of Contents to each leg? Readers can just make one click and go straight to leg 2, or 5 or whatever. Sam Blab 01:03, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
The prevailing contents link can do that. No thanks. Aeron Valderrama (talk) 11:44, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Article alerts[edit]

This is a notice to let you know about Article alerts, a fully-automated subscription-based news delivery system designed to notify WikiProjects and Taskforces when articles are entering Articles for deletion, Requests for comment, Peer review and other workflows (full list). The reports are updated on a daily basis, and provide brief summaries of what happened, with relevant links to discussion or results when possible. A certain degree of customization is available; WikiProjects and Taskforces can choose which workflows to include, have individual reports generated for each workflow, have deletion discussion transcluded on the reports, and so on. An example of a customized report can be found here.

If you are already subscribed to Article Alerts, it is now easier to report bugs and request new features. We are also in the process of implementing a "news system", which would let projects know about ongoing discussions on a wikipedia-wide level, and other things of interest. The developers also note that some subscribing WikiProjects and Taskforces use the display=none parameter, but forget to give a link to their alert page. Your alert page should be located at "Wikipedia:PROJECT-OR-TASKFORCE-HOMEPAGE/Article alerts". Questions and feedback should be left at Wikipedia talk:Article alerts.

Message sent by User:Addbot to all active wiki projects per request, Comments on the message and bot are welcome here.

Updates to TV#MOS[edit]

I'm not sure how many people monitor WP:MOSTV or even WP:TV (the basic WikiProject for all of us), but we've been trying to get some feedback on additions to the TV Manual of Style. It largely has to do with the inclusion of "Overview" tables at the start of the page, the order in which season lists are presented (currently, there is no concrete order), and what is considered too much info for DVDs (i.e. should we be placing every detail about the box set in the article, from each interview to the aspect ratio, or should be keep it more generalized). Please see discussion at WT:MOSTV#Updates to the MOS. Thank you.  BIGNOLE  (Contact me) 22:10, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Naming convention[edit]

I am asking for a concurrence on the naming convention of articles themselves. Is it OK to name the articles as follows:

  • The Amazing Race - to refer to the whole international franchise
  • The Amazing Race (U.S) - to refer to the U.S. (original) version
  • <The Amazing Race version title> - to refer to a specific version/franchise
 e.g. The Amazing Race Australia, HaMerotz LaMillion
  • The Amazing Race <season number> - to refer to a season of the U.S. version
 e.g. The Amazing Race 21
  • <The Amazing Race version title> <season number> - to refer to a season of an international franchise
 e.g. The Amazing Race Norge 1, The Amazing Race: China Rush 3

This is because a user changed The Amazing Race Philippines 1 to The Amazing Race Philippines (season 1), which is INCONSISTENT to general practice. Aeron Valderrama (talk) 22:41, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Series overview tables[edit]

Please come to Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style/Television#Series overview tables and the like to discuss the implementation of these tables in television articles, from main articles to List of Episode pages.  BIGNOLE  (Contact me) 19:25, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

Episode title quotes sections violate WP:TRIVIA[edit]

I have recently resumed watching The Amazing Race after abandoning the show for several years (due CBS's dick move of putting it up against the Simpsons), and thus I have started looking at its articles as of recent. It seems to me that sections indicating who said the title quotes are unambiguously trivia. During the last Survivor season, someone proposed to add them to Survivor articles, but it was flatly rejected there per WP:TRIVIA. I was wondering is anyone else interesting in removing them? I brought it up at Talk:The_Amazing_Race_25#Episode_title_quotes_section_is_trivia, but other than Ryulong (in agreement) no one else responded.
