A Tesla Roadster for you!
|A Tesla Roadster for you!|
|Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia! Gg53000 (talk) 18:34, 12 January 2014 (UTC)|
Dear Sir/Madam, On behalf of One-Golf magazine in Taiwan, we are pleased to contact with you and reveal our requirement for this image. As a publisher in the leadership of Golf report in Taiwan, Car-News has never stopped looking for every quality work from the spheres that all the males are fascinated with. To fill the acquisitiveness of our readers, the articles for production cars or limited edition supercars have been also well written in our monthly issue from its beginning. This is not just our obligation to bring good reports to them but a pleasure to offer the profits for the car makers through our magazines. We believe, anyhow, that this image from you is supposed to be considerably appreciated.
Thank you for your time and may the joy around you always
- Ok, but I am not sure which image you are referring to because I have uploaded about 1,800 photographs, so far. CZmarlin (talk) 19:23, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
Otto schimik bio sources?
I'm trying to write an article on Otto for a national Catholic magazine in the U.S., and can find nothing in print publishing, English or Polish, that confirms this Otto Schimek Wiki bio. Can you help?
- I will update the Otto Schimek article to current URLs and access dates because I just checked and two of the citations are no longer live. That is a typical problem of change over the years in the Internet and is described here: link rot.
- Nevertheless, a Google search on Otto Schimek provides numerous websites with some information. However, you should select "books" under the "more" Google search options to see several reputable published sources. Moreover, you should also use Google Scholar in your research. For example, please click here. I hope that helps!
- CZmarlin (talk) 19:23, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for taking time to answer my inquiry. I've found one biography. [ http://www.worldcat.org/title/spor-o-grenadiera-schimka/oclc/15697580 ] Having no Polish skill, I'm limited. Could this be a credible source? Found it in the backpages of google "scholar." Its the only thing I've seen thus far that may offer biographical details of his life and death. Every thing else just comments on his place in the political spectrum. Let me know.
- You appear as one of the original contributors to the Wiki article on Otto that gives the most detailed English explanation of Otto's life and death that I've been able to find in 3 weeks of research and correspondence. Where did these fairly unified details come from? Otto's sister seems to be the most positive proponent of his story. Did she write anything to a Polish publisher? Did any member of the formal Polish Catholic church write of his life? Was he ever nominated for sainthood? Thanks again for any help you can offer.

- My contributions to this article were to provide appropriate referenced material, as is the goal throughout the WP effort. However, this is not my area of expertise! The contributions and references I added came from my Internet searches. However, there is controversy regarding the life and actions of this individual. The Polish WP has a different view of Schimek, as well as a link to this recent Wprost magazine report. Nevertheless, there are additional Polish web sites that repeat the myth about him, such as this one. Wishing you all the best in your research. Please be sure to add material this article! CZmarlin (talk) 23:09, 17 February 2014 (UTC)
CZmarlin, Thank you for the response and the link to the parish webpage on Otto Schimek. This is very helpful. And mindful of the controversy, I'll continue to research.

Hi - saw your recent edits to the article - thanks. I just want to understand what is meant by two of the sentances you added as they seem to be missing context. The sentances were: The fastest production American sedan for 1957 was the fabulous Rambler Rebel... a limited-production car—only 1,500 were produced..." According to tests by Motor Trend, "only a fuel-injected Chevrolet Corvette sports car was faster overall compared to the six-passenger Rambler for that year.
- It is meant to illustrate the definition of what number makes it a "production car". In this case, the author describes "only 1,500 units" as being "limited production" but all of these sedans were marketed to the general public! I was hoping to expand on the section of how many does it take to qualify as a production car. I don't think there is any definite number for reaching "limited production" status in credible sources. In any case, the existing examples described cars built in very few numbers or were clearly "modified" and unusual, purpose-built sports or racing vehicles. I think this example adds to the discussion of production cars in the form of more ordinary automobiles, as was the case with the use of the Model T example. CZmarlin (talk) 03:29, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
- Thanks - I thought that might be what you were wanting to do. The whole "what is a production car" is a minefield, with about as many differing definitions are there are car makes. I, along with several others, have been trying to nail down the definition for some time. There was a fairly lengthy debate on Talk:List of fastest production cars/Archive 3#Page protected/20 car limit - new discussion which failed to reach any consensus, but if you are interested it does provide some idea of the difficulties encountered.

|Your ongoing efforts to improve the encyclopedia have not gone unnoticed: You have been selected as Editor of the Week, for eight years of contributions ranging from images to article work – here for the sheer joy of contributing. Thank you for the great contributions! (courtesy of the Wikipedia Editor Retention Project)|
- I'm nominating 1950s American automobile culture. I found that he has uploaded a tremendous amount of his own images, mainly automobile and related images, to Commons and Wikipedia over the years. His photography and other works adds value to Wikipedia every day, and it easy to see he has watchlisted a number of articles, gnoming, protecting, cleaning and preserving the work of others, plus adding his own prose. While he avoids the limelight, his work is worthy of notice. Editors like CZmarlin are the lifeblood of Wikipedia, people that contribute for years on end, purely for the joy of it. Thanks CZ, Wikipedia really is a better place because of you. on June 13th, his 8th WikiBirthday. In this time, he has produced over 20,000 edits and a dozen DYKs. Fully 86% of his edits are to articles, showing that he is here solely to build an encyclopedia. I first noticed him when I used one of his images in the lede of an article I was working on last year,

You erase the contributions without any discussion
Hello. You can not erase the contributions of the other people like you often do, without participating to any discussion and deciding alone (or alone with some of your friends hee). People will think that it is vandalism. Wikipedia is a common project. It is necessary to accept that some other contributors do not have the same ideas than yours. The readers too...
As to me, I opened a discussion, I presented the arguments and proofs, I traced the date of the modifications, I did not erase, but I added etc.
So please, don't erase violently the modifications of other people. It is not respectful for the others, for the Wikipedia "team" spirit. Someone who does something about which you did not think yourself is not an enemy to erase as well as her contributions.
Why have I added some pictures and not removed some ? Because I have some relevant reasons:
- I respect the other contributors
- to increase the neutrality, else mostly VW group, Ford and GM are represented in all articles, what does not respect the reality of the offer
- a photo for different segment size of MPV
Why have I added a picture of the Twingo and a caption with some historical and statistical informations ? Because almost no car makers interested to city cars in the 80s, but when the Twingo has been unveiled, then it triggered the launches of some city cars in all the other brands, in the 10 next years. BMW did not interest to Mini, before the Twingo triggered the trend. Neither Smart. Etc. But no old and "awarded" contributor wrote that.
I asked in the discussion if I could replace one of the 2 BMW photos to increase the balance. You did not answer about that. But you erase my contributions.
Why did you remove some texts too ?
"5 doors or estate" => I wanted to point out that there is still a subcompact model as estate, whereas the Peugeot 207 has not been replaced, and the other subcompact models do not exist as estate. So it brings a relevant illustration for the readers. But you come and you erase without thinking that a contributors had her relevant reasons to write that. It is not respectful for Wikipedia and all the readers who would appreciate this information. You should have not erase that arbitrarily.
I am a good person and with knowledges. So an honest person would be happy to welcome her contributions, to work with her and to discuss to improve the content, instead of erasing her contributions and wanting to kick her away, don't you think so ?
Look here Vehicle size class#Europe : "a car such as the Volkswagen Golf might be described as being in the Ford Focus size class, or vice versa. The VW Polo is smaller, so it belongs one segment below the Golf, while the bigger Passat is one segment above." Citing 2 times the Golf in 2 lines, 4 times VW, once Ford, no other. No "old" contributor with "awards" changed that to improve the neutrality of the content. Perhaps, because they support this non-neutral content. What else ?
Look here City_car#The boom, same kind of problem, desperate attempt to promote VW and GM : "These Korean city cars were much cheaper than most of the European models, especially the Opel/Vauxhall Agila (2000) and Volkswagen Lupo (1999), yet were still reliable."
Why all articles about cars are mostly glorifying only 3 brands and even changing in the text the reality of the car industry history ? Because the oldest contributors let that do. They do not erase when it corresponds to their arbitrary ideas. But my honest and relevant contributions are erased...
So some "awarded" people don't respect "assume good faith", but let some ridiculously arbitrary contents in the articles.
The is a problem to solve. Do you want to participate to an honest solution ? Obviously, the old contributors who let this non-neutral content for years on Wikipedia will not be arbitrarily happy that the content will be more TRUE and neutral...
Have a nice day.

I will use your image of the 1954 Hudson Hornet in my blog www.misswandaandi.com. This is a free, no commercialization blog featuring my musings and opinions. I shall be happy to make attribution. The piece isn't written yet, but it will have to do with using the imagination listening to old radio shows like "The Green Hornet."

Palm Beach Florida
I have reverted your photo that from a technical standpoint has no where near the quality or general perspective that the updated on has. That photo might be placed down a bit on the page, but the claim the other picture is superior is utterly ridiculous honestly, it looks to have been taken with a drone, and does not in any way depict what the city and the WHOLE city, looks like. I have requested other parties respond on the project talk page, please refrain from removing the picture now in place until we have other users chime in. Thanks.talk→ 20:00, 15 November 2014 (UTC)
Hi. I reverted your revert, but am working on rewriting that entire bit in the lead, and within the body of the article. The way it reads now is unbalanced, and I'm trying to get it to a sufficient NPOV. I should have it done later today. Onel5969 (talk) 20:00, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
South Palm Beach
Yes the photo ALSO shows the other areas but how on EARTH does a sign visually depict the city better then a picture that has the city and surrounding areas? talk→ 02:06, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
- Thank you for your comments. I am sure that as a pilot you can take an aerial picture that will include only a specific area of the Earth, rather than showing several towns stretching to the distant horizon. Your image illustrates far more than the small Town of South Palm Beach. Yes, it is a nice photograph, but it needs to have the various town limits drawn on it. Otherwise, it makes the Town of South Palm Beach look as if it covers a huge area because this image clearly shows several land masses among the numerous water features in the region. A traditional map can more clearly show the political boundaries of the town, as well as its Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal shorelines to help the reader "visualize" the place and its surrounding areas. None of these are readily evident to specifically position the Town of South Palm Beach in the aerial image you have uploaded for a reader who is not familiar with the region. On the other hand, I think that most people can easily visualize South Palm Beach from a picture taken of a sign, buildings, and the only street in this town that is less than 3/4 of a mile long. I am sure that the vast majority of WP readers visualize a town's features, streets, buildings, etc. from the surface of the Earth. Most WP articles contain an image of a typical land-based characteristic in a particular town or city. I hope this helps to explain my revert. CZmarlin (talk) 02:57, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
- From a perspective of value, as a pilot it defies logic to have a picture that is ONLY of a focused area that as the pic that I cropped out of the one you reverted shows. A aerial photo that shows surrounding land masses and visual aids to aviators would have far more value then the view that you seem to prefer. As far as using a street sign over a real aerial photo of the area, that is simply not a argument and it is silly to argue about it. As I have said before, you had mentioned your personal desires. I am aware of what you want, and after years and years and years of contributing original aerial photos, I have yet to hear the street sign over aerial photo argument, nor did you address the request that you start by using a talk page before you simply revert my contributions. Thanks. talk→ 03:08, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
- WPPilot, Please be honest and show the original image that was reverted from the article that shows a huge portion of Palm Beach County, and not just post another version on my talk page in an effort to deceive me. I would also comment that your new picture still shows more than just the Town of South Palm Beach. Moreover, putting messages on an contributor's talk page before making changes to a WP article is not typically expected nor required. All editors are expected to work to improve WP. Your professional expertise as a pilot clearly shows a preference for aerial views. I am sorry if you think that land-based images seem inferior to help readers visualize towns and cities. Please continue to upload your images and respect the views of other contributors to WP articles. Thanks, CZmarlin (talk) 03:29, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
Are you calling me a liar, Both are the same photo! Any rational person is going to prefer the aerial photo to the one you "like" of the sign. I posted the cut out version, above before you replied so if someone needs to be honest it is you, my integrity is without question here. I posted a alt and then put it, on the page. Not once has any other person, other then YOU ever made these type of comments or strict criticism perhaps next time I can use your plane and take the pictures that you like, of street signs? "I am sorry if you think that land-based images seem inferior" the standard I try to use for ANY photo I upload is "Will this pic fill the requirements of the featured photos requirement's. The photo of a street and the sign, would NEVER be nominated as a featured photo, much less become one. On the other hand, the editors of Wikipedia HAVE chimed in and nominated MANY of my photos as FEATURED photos, if someone other then you were to chime in that would be fine, but your way off base if you think I care enough about you, to try to deceive you, that's just whacky. Your photo has the rear end of a person (I count 8 asses total) as well as a car well, 8 cars 2 parked 5 rear ends and one coming at you, in it. Professionally speaking that photo has NO VALUE WHATSOEVER. I am sorry but that is the truth, no one would EVER publish the rear end of a man walking away with the town sign in the right hand corner much less 8 peoples rear side. Your February 2008 Canon PowerShot photo is useless to anyone in professional media. Go have another slice of pie and enjoy the rest of your turkey day! talk→ 04:10, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
