Malaysian motorsport[edit]

Have no problem if there are multiple articles. Like to think there could be more than two before creating a subcat because it's not as though the main Malaysian sport categories are groaning with overload, but my primary objection was there being a subcat of one. That just seemed totally unneccessary. --Falcadore (talk) 11:34, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

Template:Campaignbox Military Operations: Belgium and northern France 1914[edit]

Thanks for the edit but what does noinclude do? ThanksKeith-264 (talk) 06:50, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

In general terms, any text between the <noinclude> and the </noinclude> doesn't get included in the articles which transclude the template. So in this case, it means that the template will be included in Category:Campaignbox templates and Category:World War I campaignbox templates (which we want), but the articles which transclude the template won't (which we wouldn't want, because those articles aren't templates, and hence don't belong in template categories). See WP:NOINCLUDE for more information. Regards. DH85868993 (talk) 07:21, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks very much, I only know enough to copy templates and then change the wording for a new one. RegardsKeith-264 (talk) 09:33, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

sort keys[edit]

Thanks for the info. I fear I may have done a few more than you found. I have to re-trace my steps (trying to fix some of my errors in a few edits anyway...) I had seen other series done like this and thought this to be the norm. sorry bout that. btw, is there any difference in sorting between GP and F1? MotorOilStains (talk) 05:10, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

As far as I'm aware, they are sorted the same. DH85868993 (talk) 23:47, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Re: Qualifying Tables[edit]

Wow. Somehow haven't realized such data exists! Thanks a lot! Am hoping to embark on a project to build a table and report for every single F1 article in the '80s, similar to the 1981 Italian GP. A mountain ahead... L. Zheng Wei (talk) 13:02, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

That sounds like a very worthwhile project - good luck! DH85868993 (talk) 09:33, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

Coventry Climax and Lotus Elite[edit]

Hi. I was about to click (Thank) on your minor edit on the sports car racing link edit on Coventry Climax, when I realized that the change you made was exactly the same as what I almost made a day earlier. You and I know quite well the concept of "Sports Car" do not generally apply to "Sports Car Racing" where most serious contenders have been prototype racing cars since the 1950's. However, the link in the article is for Lotus Elite, which was a series production sports car (or a GT, according to FIA classification), and not a prototype racing car that is described in sports car racing article for the era. Linking the successes to [[sports car racing]] may be more appropriate for DOHC 'FWC' or 'FWMC' engines, not the series production SOHC 'FWE'. So while I don't like the "[[sports car]] racing" very much, I decided against making the change you made. What's your opinion? Yiba (talk | contribs) 10:42, 21 May 2014 (UTC)

I guess I've just always considered sports car racing to always include both production sports cars and prototypes, but I haven't really thought about it too deeply. If you think "[[sports car]] racing" is more appropriate in this particular instance, then that's fine with me. DH85868993 (talk) 11:15, 21 May 2014 (UTC)
Hmmm. May be my perception on the word "sports car racing" is off. I just realized the article "Sports prototype" does exist separately from sports car racing. Let me think it over. Yiba (talk | contribs) 11:29, 21 May 2014 (UTC)
