Talk:List of fursuit dance competition results

This needs a specification of what a fursuit dance competition is and if that is something that can be listed and compared across conventions, in order to make sense as a list article rather than informaiton noted in more specific articles on the topics. -- Sine 21:20, 29 November 2013 (EST)

Unknown vs N/A[edit]

In this edit, a lot of "unknown"s have been changed to "N/A", which generally means "not applicable". Care needs to be taken here as the two phrases don't mean the same thing.

For example, "Second place: unknown" suggests EITHER second place was awarded to an unidentified individual, OR there is uncertainty about whether there was a second place at all. This is slightly different to "Second place: N/A", which indicates a second place was definitely NOT awarded at all.--Higgs Raccoon (talk) 15:59, 2 August 2014 (EDT)


Move to Fursuit Dance Competition? --EarthFurst (talk) 05:43, 4 January 2016 (EST)

My intuition is that this is a good idea, since the template and the article are both bare. However, once I think about it, I feel it's better to move this page to List of Fursuit Dance Competition Results: that is, out of the Template namespace and into the main namespace, and change the inclusion in the article into a link. The article can be a description of fursuit dance competitions, how they started, what are the judging, the challenges of dancing in fursuit, etc. Link the article from Furry convention and add a photo like this (it's listed as under a CC-by license at time of writing). The list can live in the main namespace like other lists, and won't lengthen the article. --Kakurady (talk) 21:21, 4 January 2016 (EST)

Character/performer credits format inconsistent[edit]

I noticed in the case that the performer's name is not the same as the character's, there is some inconsistency. Sometimes they are both listed, for example "Ronnie (as Taun Taun)" and sometimes the text only refers to the character, but links to the performer's page, for example "Telephone" which links to the article Wicker. (And sometimes you get something really amusing, like "Momo (as Temperance)" where Momo is the character, and Temperance is the performer... :) ---Kakurady (talk) 21:32, 4 January 2016 (EST)
