WRC 2012[edit]

I've had to undo some of your edits on the 2012 World Rally Championship season page, particularly in the driver entries table. You had grouped Theirry Neuville and Peter van Merksteijn, Jr. together in a team called PH Sport, and you listed a privately-entered Mini for Armindo Araujo. However, the source provided - the Autosport article on the early entry list - did not show any of these. It only said that Neuville and van Merksteijn would drive privately-entered DS3s; it did not say that they would be team-mates, or that their team would be called PH Sport. Likewise, there was no mention of Armindo Araujo at all. Please be aware that one of the most important aspects of Wikipedia is that you supply references for the edits you make - and that those references must support what you have edited into the article. while the Autosport article on entries for Monte Carlo was a good reference, it did not support the edits you made, and so I have had to revert them. A full entry list is expected on January 2nd. Prisonermonkeys (talk) 02:36, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 14[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited 2012 Rally México, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Jonas Andersson (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

More on the WRC[edit]

Hi FinnishF1Fan,

I have to ask: why did you undo this edit?

When the Mini WRC Team changed their name to the Prodrive WRC Team, they did not change the nationality of their racing licence. Hence, there was no need to list the flag twice, once for each team. I know you may have felt that you were cutting what you thought to be unnecessary code, but you will see that there is a precedent: it is done twice - once or Ferrari and once for HRT - in the teams and drivers table on the 2011 Formula 1 season page, and also in the case of Renault on the 2009 season table. I know, these are Formula 1 pages and I'm talking about the WRC page, but the situation is one and the same. It is perfectly acceptable to have this more-complex system of coding for Mini/Prodrive, so I'm at a loss to explain why you reverted it. Prisonermonkeys (talk) 08:50, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

Rally numbers[edit]

FinnishF1Fan, you cannot remove content from pages because you think it "looks ridiculous". Yes, the Volkswagen entries on the 2012 WRC page are growing large, but they have to stay that way. Removing that information and making it more simple creates a contradiction where several drivers use the same number in the one event. You simply can't take out that information, since we can prove that it is correct. Prisonermonkeys (talk) 02:54, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

Garteh Roberts[edit]

While Robets' death was tragic and probably avoidable, the 2012 WRC season page is not an appropriate place to detail the events leading up to his death, considering that it happened in another rally series.

Some of your comments on my talk page are of concern to me. You seem concerned with paying tribute to Roberts on the season page. That is not the purpose of Wikipedia - it is not an obituary. The most-appropriate places for details of the accident to go are Breen's page Roberts' page, or the IRC page. Even if Breen decides to retire from rallying as a result of it.

Furthermore, we don't need to detail every single mid-season co-driver change. Look elsewhere in the article - do you see footnotes explaining why Kevin Abbring, Patrick Sandell, Nicolás Fuchs, Gianluca Linari, Subhan Aksa or João Silva changed co-drivers mid-season? No? Then why is it so important that the article gives details of Roberts' death? Prisonermonkeys (talk) 23:36, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

Grosjean[edit]

Grosjean is not excluded from the Italian GP, because he has not been included in the first place. An exclusion is where a driver is removed from an event that has already started. Grosjean is banned, not excluded - it is NOT the same thing. Don't keep putting it back. Bretonbanquet (talk) 16:27, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

WRC 2012 - Drivers' championship[edit]

Hi. I have fixed your update of the Drivers' championship table at the 2012 World Rally Championship season article beacause you had given the same rank to drivers with the same amount of points. As explained on the official WRC website, drivers can't be tied in the standings. I just wanted to tell you because it is the second time you do that, and that I've had to revert you. Cheers.

Icons on 2013 WRC season page[edit]

Anti-lag, I think it's important that we include icons in the driver tables of the 2013 WRC page. There are no less than seven classes of car being used in the junior categories, and some of them are only slightly different to others in the same category (for example, R3T and R3C). We need some way to distinguish between them, and using icons is something other motorsport season pages do.

I'm also experiementing with it at the moment, because I think that the driver table for the WRC itself needs a bit of cleaning up. I'm not happy with the way it is divided into two halves; I think we could make it a single, unbroken table, with icons to distinguish between cars that can score points. It would look something like this:

Constructor Team Tyre No. Drivers Co-drivers Class Rounds

I think that's a much neater version of the WRC table than the current one. Prisonermonkeys (talk) 04:47, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

Are you sure this is right?[edit]

Anti-lag, are you sure this edit is correct?

This is the old text:

In the WRC Championship, entries registered as manufacturers must enter all thirteen rounds of the championship with a minimum of two cars. Major entries that are not registered as manufacturers must contest at least seven events – including at least one outside Europe – with a one or two-car team. These entries may only score points in a maximum of seven rounds.

And this is the current version:

In the WRC Championship, entries registered as manufacturers must enter all thirteen rounds of the championship with a minimum of two cars. Major entries that are not registered as manufacturers must contest at least seven events – including at least one outside Europe – with a one or two-car team.

However, the line "These entries may only score points in a maximum of seven rounds." applies specifically to major entires that are not registered as manufacturers — in the case of Monte Carlo, it is referring to Martin Prokop, Julien Maurin and Bryan Bouffier — and not the Citroen and Volkwagen works teams and M-Sport and Lotos WRC.

I think you might have inadvertently deleted something that is right because you have misread the statement. Prisonermonkeys (talk)

Disambiguation link notification for January 12[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Qatar World Rally Team, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Malcolm Wilson (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
