One-Golf magazine[edit]

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

Otto schimik bio sources?[edit]

Dear CZmarlin,

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?

Thanks, Mike McCarthy — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mccpax (talkcontribs) 18:38, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

Mike,
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. Mike McCarthy — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mccpax (talkcontribs) 21:15, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
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.

Production car[edit]

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.

Are you wanting to illustrate use of the phrase limited production car? NealeFamily (talk) 03:14, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

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. Regards - NealeFamily (talk) 04:52, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

revert[edit]

Do you have a reason for that revert? Plantsurfer (talk) 23:14, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

The reason why I removed your bandsaw example is that they do not all use solid rubber or other polymer tires. Sorry that I did not put this explanation in the edit summary. - CZmarlin (talk) 23:35, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

My M-170[edit]

I want to thank you for the early pictures of my M-170. We were at car show at the Frederick, Maryland MVA show. I have slowly improved it's restoration since then. If you want I can send you updated pictures of it. Kevin Lancaster

Kevin! Great to know about your restoration of your vehicle! I enjoy original old vehicles and like to spread the word about them, as well as make images of them available for all to enjoy. I would encourage you to post pictures in the Commons, because you are the author of them! Of course, it would be great to see your Jeep M-170 at a show in its new condition!

Editor of the Week[edit]

Editor of the week barnstar.svg Editor of the Week
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)

User:Dennis Brown submitted the following nomination for Editor of the Week:

I'm nominating CZmarlin 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, 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.

Thanks again for your efforts! Go Phightins! 12:54, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Thank you for your wonderful contributions and your respect for fellow editors. ```Buster Seven Talk 13:48, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you all for this honor! This means I need to keep doing this for many more years! I truly appreciate the recognition! CZmarlin (talk) 03:25, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

You erase the contributions without any discussion[edit]

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.[citation needed]"

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.

use of 1954 Hudson Hornet image[edit]

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." My father bought a green 1954 Hornet since he was such a fan of Hudson and the show.
