Potential assistance with cropping[edit]

Hey man, long time no speak. Good to see some of the Simpson articles getting that GA icon. Basically, I may be requiring your assistance for potentially cropping some photos that I snapped at the Tour of Britain on Monday... you know the day that it basically rained harder than it did on Sunday in Scotland, and harder than the safari park on Tuesday. That and potentially a second set of eyes on the photos. Any help would be much appreciated, and for which ones that could be usable on Commons. :) Here's the set. Craig(talk) 22:05, 18 September 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, all's well. Still trying to catch up on the palmares from Sunday 15th onwards, just because of how busy I've been in the last 7 to 10 days. Typical GA backlog; it will get reviewed eventually, I hope. Yeah, it was a good race overall. Knew Wiggins had it covered after the win at Knowsley, but it was good to see some young talent winning some stages with Sam Bennett winning at Caerphilly (thought he was really unlucky at Kendal, where Ciolek had him covered at the 15% finishing hill of Beast Banks), and Simon Yates coming off a superb Tour de l'Avenir to take the queen stage at Haytor. Ah yeah, that was the one that finished on the pavé in Guildford? No surprises about the winner on that one... Whether Mr. Cavendish keeps the rainbows, I'm not too sure. Don't think the terrain suits him for Sunday. Weather permitting of course. Ah, that's a shame, but I certainly agree with you on the seeing them in the flesh part. That was a first experience of cycling live in person rather than on TV for me. Had the chance to see the National Championships when they were up in Glasgow, but I was flying home from Canada that day so I was rather jet-lagged.
Yeah, absolutely. Is there any particular photos you would like for Share Alike, or would you rather me to set the full set as such? Craig(talk) 21:03, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
Can honestly see the race going 2.HC within the next few years, I think. The event is coming on strong of late, and coupled with the two Grand Tour starts in the British Isles next year, it's definitely high time for the most prestigious race in our country to be boosted in its classification. I would put Yates as favourite to win the world title on Friday; looks a mighty strong entry list with the likes of Caleb Ewan, Jasper Stuyven, Petr Vakoč, Michael Valgren, Davide Villella, Dylan van Baarle and Nick van der Lijke also potentially starting. Under-23 race could even beat the main race for wide open-ness. Barhatch Lane is one tight piece of tarmac. Looks bloody amazing even on Google Maps. Martin's too strong for everyone in the time trial nowadays; he just has the odd off time-trial, but he's even more dominant than what Cancellara was. Perhaps Spartacus was keeping something back for Sunday, who knows. But it is wide open. I might put a small wager on either Valverde or Boasson Hagen; the latter is 40/1(!) with Paddy Power. Yeah, I'll get that set changed tomorrow. I would do it tonight, but I'm probably going to head to bed in a minute as work has finally caught up on me from earlier! It's a hard life sometimes! Craig(talk) 23:43, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
That's it batched Share Alike, I believe. Craig(talk) 18:18, 26 September 2013 (UTC)
I had a look through it earlier on, but it looks as if only around half of the photos have gone up, which is quite strange. All the photos away from the cycling seem to have been uploaded but about 90 images haven't gone up... Strange. Yeah, the categories are a bit off considering the tags that I stuck on the photos. Sunday's race was rather damp... almost as bad as conditions in Kendal a fortnight ago. I admittedly caught only the final two hours of the race because of the MotoGP that was on earlier in the day. From what I saw, Purito digged deep, but Costa seemed to want it more. Purito gave up in the closing metres, and padded Costa's victory to a near-bike length. I've been impressed with Costa this season; ripped them apart in Switzerland again, and took two fine stage wins at the Tour. Another world champion's jersey going to Lampre, via Movistar at the end of this season. Glad Valverde beat Nibali for the bronze though; some dodgy adjudicating from the commissaires on homeground of course. Five road medals but no golds... Will it ever come good for him? The British team... well... the less said about them, the better. It was a total disaster. You have to play the conditions, no matter how bad they are. Look at the other big nations; Spain had four left at the end, Belgium four, and Italy likewise. Great Britain were an embarrassment. Four riders with medals; the newly-retired Katie Colclough's gold in the TTT, Wiggins' silver and then Froome and Thomas getting a bronze in the TTT. Shocking. Perfect lead into a Commonwealths year.

Thanks. My goal is to get it on the front page, so there's chance to get involved still. BaldBoris 16:57, 16 November 2013 (UTC)
Wahey! Good to see the article progressing up the class ladder! Looks amazing so far, and still with the possibility of getting it up to FA, it will look even better than it already does. Craig(talk) 22:00, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

Revision in Bill Mitchell article[edit]

I'm baffled as to one of your edits. You added the link "CyclingNews.com" to the "External links" of the article Bill Mitchell. What was that about? What's the connection to the article's subject? -The Gnome (talk) 00:31, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

He created the site. The link was added to the see also section which is inline with WP:ALSO. BaldBoris 01:43, 10 December 2013 (UTC)
(I copied your response here so that we keep the conversation in one place, if you don't mind. It's much easier this way.) I say "wow"! I did not know that. Guess we'll have to put it in the article, with a bit of background. Do we have anything on Mitchell's personal life? The elementary stuff I mean, i.e. marital status, any children, city of residence, etc.-The Gnome (talk) 07:18, 10 December 2013 (UTC)
