2013 British Grand Prix[edit]

Hi Minimac,

I noticed that you made these changes to the 2013 British Grand Prix page on the gronds that the reference given was a self-published source. I'm not sure how familiar you are with the sport of Formula 1, but the site given - F1 Fanatic - is actually considered to be highly reliable. Although everything is published by one man, he is a professional journalist and the site has an excellent reputation - so much so that the site published the official launch photographs of this year's Ferrari more than two hours before any other news outlet did. The only differences between F1 Fanatic and the likes of Autosport is that it is run by one man, and readers have the ability to discuss things in articles. Although a blog, it is perhaps the largest dedicated source for Formula 1 on he internet.

A greater diversity of sources is always appreciated, but I thought you might like to know that although it is a blog, F1 Fanatic is still considered to be highly reliable. Prisonermonkeys (talk) 07:30, 4 July 2013 (UTC)

Christian2941 ban discussion[edit]

Please unarchive; this is an active community ban proposal. De facto ban is not good enough. Thanks. Georgewilliamherbert (talk) 07:05, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Whoniverse article edits[edit]

Please read the discussion page of the Whoniverse article. Please read how I have tried and tried to discuss things rationally, and been met with nothing but "sarcasm". Eventually, being told to "be bold", I started making productive edits, removing rambling sections of totally unsourced material, and actually adding RS. It is User:G S Palmer who keeps reinstating unsourced POV material, as well as deliberately ignoring any sort of productive discussion. 41.132.179.212 (talk) 19:15, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

I hope you read this. If you read the Whoniverse discussion, as well as read through the edit history, you will see that User:GraemeLeggett and I were collaborating, removing unsourced material, rewording POV and weaselly sentences, and adding WP:RS. We went through sections, almost word-by-word, trying to improve the unsourced mess, and make it Wikipedia-worthy. It is User:G S Palmer who appeared after the discussion, and began to simply reinstate unsourced material, remove newly added WP:RS, and take a hostile turn. I notice you warned me for edit warring, but not him/her. I would be very keen to know why this is? 41.132.179.212 (talk) 19:28, 15 March 2014 (UTC)
