F1 discussion[edit]

I think you're absolutely right. During big debates I've always said that real life is always more important and should always take precedence. This one is a really frustrating discussion and it's very easy for any or all of us to get caught up in it and lose our cool, to nobody's advantage. Somehow at least one of us seems to hate every single idea! find At some stage we'll figure out a solution and we'll all move on, and ultimately it won't matter all that much in the grand scheme of things. I still think WCC order is a long shot, simply due to the numbers of people against it, but I'll bring your points into the discussion in the unlikely event that WCC order is a realistic option. More importantly, good luck tomorrow :) Bretonbanquet (talk) 00:04, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

Sortable table[edit]

Calendar hyphens[edit]

Hi there,

By sheer coincidence I found the following at MOS:HYPHEN: Non-breaking: A non-breaking hyphen can be created by using the HTML code ‑ Maybe this can help us solve the issues we are having with the hyphens of Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps and Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in the calendar?

Hope this is helpful! Tvx1 (talk) 19:25, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi again,
Thanks for the reply, but don't quite understand the issue. (It's certainly me ;) ) I don't really notice the difference between the two versions. Is it something only noticeable on a mobile device.?
Then there's something else I thought of. Is there a possibility to have the "nat" column heading in the coding but hide it on the actual article? Tvx1 (talk) 21:48, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
That's really odd. On my MacOS the hyphens are identical in both Safari and Chrome.
As for the column heading I think that should work if you enter the following code in the "nat" and "list of circuit" header cells : ! style="border-right:0px"|Nat. and ! style="border-left:0px"|Circuit and apply the "hidden" mark around the "Nation" template. Tvx1 (talk) 22:21, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
I wonder if you could solve the alignment issue by aligning the "Circuit" to the left of the cell and then adding some spaces (nonbreaking ones if necessary) to move it to the center?
Side note. It can be painful to deal with those users, but you have made some very good arguments against Prisoner there. And as I said on the talk page, I'm completely clueless why Joetri accused you of owning the article even though you agree with Joetri that the title column should not be removed. Tvx1 (talk) 22:52, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
We could look at it this way: I doesn't hurt trying. I would try solving the alignment myself if you just direct me where to where I can find the correct coding for it. We can relist the link to the sandbox on the article talk page and wait and see which reactions we get. No problem if it doesn't work, at least we made an attempt. Tvx1 (talk) 23:46, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done! How does it look?
Earlier today I compared the hyphen's again using IE this time in they're indeed different in that browser. This is bizarre. Tvx1 (talk) 20:19, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
I have given the alignment issue another go and I think I solved it now. "The Phoenix" should now look okay both on desktop and on mobile. Tvx1 (talk) 17:38, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
On closer inspection I do admit that it's still not 100% perfect on mobile. I tried adjusting it again, so maybe it's okay now. Nevertheless I think we should ask ourselves the question wether it's entire unacceptable or not in its current form. I think it's maybe worth a try to find out what other users think of it. It does seem to be okay both on desktop and on mobile for the teams and drivers table. Could you specify what the issue is you're experiencing with it?
I have now tried to solve in a completely different manner by hiding or removing the "nat" heading and adding colspan 2 to the circuit header (you will find the version in question in your sandbox's history), but if I do that the flags get cropped up entirely when viewed on mobile. I'm completely clueless on what causes this and how we can prevent this from happening. Tvx1 (talk) 21:57, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Flag issue[edit]

I'll ask you directly, since the discussion on the 2014 page has crowded this out, but just what is the issue with flags in tables on mobiles? I've looked at the tables on my phone (iPhone if it makes a difference) and the only difference I can see is the 2014 table keeps everything on one line. That frankly is not grounds to add a "Nat." heading - we all know the flags are meant to represent nationality - so unless there is some fatal error showing on another platform I will have to insist on their removal.

It is worth noting that similar tables with flags are used everywhere on this website from the Olympics to WW2, and the 2014 season page is the only article where someone has complained. Either we are doing something wrong with our tables, which is possible as they are a pain in the ass to create, or someone is over-egging the problem. QueenCake (talk) 17:18, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for taking the time to explain this to me. I have missed most of the debates about the tables in previous months, so when I noticed that this column had appeared yesterday I was rather perplexed as to its purpose. I do understand the intent here, and you have put in a lot of effort to try and correct this issue.
However, I do still have to question the necessity of this. In particular I'd question, "While the line break between the circuit name and the place is acceptable, the line break between the flag and the text is not." I do wonder just why this is unacceptable. It is after all merely a line break, and the purpose of the flag to indicate the location of the racing circuit is not in any way impaired. It is also worth considering that every visible heading further complicates the table, and they are already difficult for newcomers to understand as it is. So you do just have to consider whether it is really worth fixing a minor issue on one platform in this manner.
I wish you luck bringing it up with the powers that be, but unless there happens to be a possible software change planned I fear this may not end well. This problem is not isolated to one table or even this project - you are describing a problem that exists on tens of thousands, if not hundreds, of articles. You're certainly not going to get them all to agree to this change, and there will be editors who will not accept a different table on the 2014 article. Worse, the MOS flag extremists who won't change their idiotic policy will push for the flags simply to be removed. I won't unilaterally change the tables currently on the 2014 page, but I will strongly advise not to make this change anywhere else without some wider discussion beforehand. QueenCake (talk) 20:02, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
I'm just struggling to understand why neatness should be such an issue, and I do object to calling tables "broken" when really it's just a bit wonky. They are still readable after all.
As for the powers-that-be, I was (humorously) referring to the select group of editors who inhabit the policy areas of Wikipedia, who are quite content to throw out endless policy pages and refuse to compromise until the opposition gives up in frustration. Sure, feel free to raise this issue and perhaps there'll be an update to fix it, but don't be surprised in the meantime if someone arrives onto tje 2014 page and reverses everything you've done on the grounds of uniformity.
In any case, I won't take up any more of your time on this. QueenCake (talk) 21:30, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

ANRFC[edit]

I agree with you, this has become ridiculous even by WT:F1 standards. Problem is, a discussion has to be live for a month before you can take it to ANRFC. Considering that this feels like it's been going on forever, I was stunned to see it began on 26 March. So we have three weeks before we can take it there. I will have a think about what else we can do in the meantime. Cheers, Bretonbanquet (talk) 22:33, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Good point. Let's see where we are on the 9th. Bretonbanquet (talk) 22:44, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Hello! There is a DR/N request you may have interest in.[edit]

Tables on mobile[edit]

Hey GM,

Now that the 2014 season article has had its protection removed, I was hoping you could take at the "free practice drivers" section of the table (I am not happy that it is there; I think it should be a separate, collapsible table as test drivers are not the same as race drivers, but that's not the point - there was a consensus for it, but Tvx1 has declared that one invalid, too, mostly because only a handful of people discussed it).

I was wondering if there was some way of centre-aligning the test drivers. Right now, they appear at the top if the column, and there is a whole lot of white space under it. Is it possible to move them down to the middle of the cell? Prisonermonkeys (talk) 23:52, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

Okay. Thanks anyway. Prisonermonkeys (talk) 02:49, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

Extra discussion[edit]

Hey GM,

Thanks for implementing those changes now that the DRN is resolved. I noticed in your edit summary that you did not include the "Nat." column on the grounds that further discussion is needed, but I am not sure that it is. The benefits of that column on mobile devices are obvious (and they don't interfere with non-mobile browsers), and Tvx1 has found a way of hiding the heading in the team and driver chart. That could be applied to the calendar (and possibly even the results tables), giving us all of the benefits of the "Nat." column with none of the problems that arise from having the heading. Prisonermonkeys (talk) 22:19, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Given the choice between a column title that is slightly out of alignment and the awkward staggering of circuits and their corresponding flagicons, the column title is the lesser evil. Prisonermonkeys (talk) 22:43, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
