Notability of Mike McGinnity[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Mike McGinnity requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article appears to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Blanchardb-MeMyEarsMyMouth-timed 15:22, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Regarding John Harbin and Frankie Bunn[edit]

Hello. I notice you have removed all references to Frankie Bunn being joint caretaker manager of Coventry - twice.

Now That's What I Call Music! 70 (U.K. series)[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Now That's What I Call Music! 70 (U.K. series), requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion debate, such as articles for deletion. If you can indicate how Now That's What I Call Music! 70 (U.K. series) is different from the previously posted material, or if you can indicate why this article should not be deleted, I advise you to place the template {{hangon}} underneath the other template on the article, and also put a note on Talk:Now That's What I Call Music! 70 (U.K. series) saying why this article should stay. An admin should check for such edits before deleting the article. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Please read our criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item 4 under General criteria. If you believe the original discussion was unjustified, please feel free to use deletion review, but do not continue to repost the article if it is deleted. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. We welcome your help in trying to improve Wikipedia, and we request you to follow these instructions.

Coventry City F.C. assessment[edit]

I've left some comments for you here. I hope you find them useful. West Bromwich Albion F.C. was probably in a worse state when I started work on it, and I managed to make it a good article, so there's no reason why someone couldn't do the same with the Coventry City article. Cheers. --Jameboy (talk) 20:18, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Chris coleman.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

2008 Formula One season[edit]

This regards you and User:Linczone. I know you two have been reverting each others edits in regards to F1 test drivers, and there seems to be no end in sight. You have an actually valid source (F1.com) which claims these people are test drivers, and he has a valid claim that F1.com is mistaken. So I recommend, if possible, that you two stop editing warring with each other, and discuss this on either of your user pages, or the article talk page, and find a solution. This constant reverting is not helpful.

I am not trying to blame anyone or accuse someone of wrong doing, just simply trying to find a solution that works best, and some discussion between you two as it seems there might just be a lack of understanding. The359 (talk) 20:14, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

Page Assessments[edit]

Hi, an individual editor can not grade an article above class B. There is a process for assessing article beyond this; see Wikipedia:Good article nominations. It would be best to put the football page back to B, and I guess that the page needs a lot more references to reach the GA standard. I wonder if you can coordinate work on the football page using Wikipedia:WikiProject Coventry. Some of the football teams in Birmingham have got their pages to FA status, I think. Snowman (talk) 19:34, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

CCFC History[edit]

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Castles.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Castles.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 11:34, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Reverting[edit]

Stop reverting on Coldplay discography, we don't need pathetic, silly little flag graphics for each country. Stop reverting, and by the way, your attitude could use a little work, as your lack of willingness to discuss rather than revert on a whim has so far been shocking. Qst (talk) 20:29, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

It seems none of us are willing to back down, and as your willingness to communicate is low as it is, I'm asking you to discuss this on the talk page, as we don't need flags, and the page is just going to get protected if we keep bickering. Qst (talk) 15:46, 18 June 2008 (UTC)
Don't use that attitude with me, as you did on Talk:Coldplay; it will get you nowhere in life, and further confirms my belief you're unable to communicate properly. Qst (talk) 16:23, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

List of Coldplay Awards[edit]

The article currently lacks sources (no in-line citations or references) and has not made any assertions of notability (no indication of the importance/relevance of each award listed). Unless both issues are properly addressed, the article should be re-directed to the main Coldplay article for the time being.

I've also noticed you've been showing a lot of ownership towards Coldplay articles and have not allowed other editors to make changes to your edits; that's not permitted on Wikipedia. I'd suggest collaborating with other editors, instead of calling them out, like you did here. Thanks. --Madchester (talk) 22:31, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Coldplay discography - Lost?[edit]

Hi, i notice you've reverted my edits regarding 'Lost?' on the Coldplay discography a number of times now and am left wondering why as you have left no description in the edit history. I assure you that the 'Lost?' is the track that charted, not 'Lost!' and overall i am just left bemused as to why you keep changing this back.

Please can i direct you to the talk page: [4] as well as this article which confirms what i say: http://new.uk.music.yahoo.com/blogs/chartwatch/232/week-ending-june-21st-2008/ If we can discuss this sensibly instead of just reverting edits it will be of far more help to the article in question Winterspell (talk) 21:04, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Liam Francis[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Liam Francis, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

2009 Formula One season drivers[edit]

Scuderia Playteam[edit]

There's no point in having a link just to "Scuderia" in the Superleague Formula article, it just means "stable" in Italian. The full team's name is "Scuderia Playteam", they race in the Italian GT Championship and the International GT Open, have experience in Euro 3000 and the FIA GT Championship, and won the Spanish GT Championship. I've also removed Sarafree from the listing - they are in Italian insurance company and merely sponsor the team in GT racing. --Pc13 (talk) 14:05, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Why are references not necessary? You seem to have been around for a while, so you should be familiar with Wikipedia:Verifiability and Wikipedia:Citing sources.

Team name and entrant name[edit]

Mr X, I think it's great you're getting interested in other motorsports because of Superleague, but you've been making a few changes in GP2 and FIA GT and there are several nuances you still don't understand, such as the difference between "team" and "entrant". For example, you removed Sarafree from the 2007 FIA GT Championship season page. Legally, the team is called Scuderia Playteam. However, the entrant name is supposed to include the Sarafree sponsorship. It's the same reason why Ferrari races in F1 under the name Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro. The company name is still Scuderia Ferrari as a legal entity. The team registered as Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro on a sporting authority level. Then, in the 2007 GP2 Series season, you removed the Italian flags from Piquet Sports. At the time, Piquet Sports did not have a technical structure, the Italian flag was there because the team was run from Italy by an outfit called GP Racing. That's also normal, for example throuought history there have been several entrants called Martini Racing, sponsored by the Martini & Rossi distillery. However, there has never been any actual team called Martini Racing, they had a German flag when they sponsored the works Porsche team in Le Mans, an Italian flag when they sponsored Lancia in rallying, and a British flag when they sponsored Brabham in Formula 1. --Pc13 (talk) 08:25, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

Stop using Wikipedia pages as reference. I've changed Alan Docking Racing to reflect their actual racing license, as referenced is this British Formula 3 archive site. In this part of the site, you can see Ultimate Motorsport also has a British license. The French Ultimate Signature was a joint venture between Ultimate Motorsport from the UK and Signature Plus from France, which ran in the 2008 World Series by Renault season exclusively. They have since gone their separate ways and Barry Walsh has taken over the World Series by Renault operation, with Signature retreating back to F3 while also operating a Le Mans Series team. --Pc13 (talk) 16:31, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Hi, I've started a discussion about your recent homogeneization of champions tables in several racing series: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Motorsport#homogenization of champions tables - Rollof1 (talk) 11:40, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Pedro de la Rosa/Bruno Senna[edit]

I've removed your references to Pedro de la Rosa and Bruno Senna being the drivers for Campos Grand Prix in 2010. The websites you have been linking to do not back up your claims; they only post rumours that the two drivers will be signed on. The Spanish media has traditionally been very unreliable when it comes to the Formula One driver market - they've been perpetrating the Alonso-to-Ferrari myths for years now - and they will probably become even worse now that there is a Spanish-backed team in the sport. If Valencia comes around and Campos annouce that de la Rosa and Senna will indeed be driving for them, then I'll be the first person to admit I was wrong and I'll even make the changes to the page myself. But in the meantime, please wait, at least until such time as a credible news source - like F1-Live or Autosport or GP Update - post it. Prisonermonkeys (talk) 05:18, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

Delta Racing[edit]

Hello there. Are you sure that Delta Racing (Delta Motor Sport) is the team of http://www.deltamotorsport.co.uk/. It just seems that the website there is for a small team - one which wouldn't do Superleague Formula maybe. I've found no information about this team and everything about them seems to be a mystery. --Roadblocker (talk) 08:57, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. :) I have just now found this webpage - http://www.delta-motorsport.com/projects.htm - A different Delta racing team - last seen operating all the cars in the GP Masters series. Is this the Delta we are after? --Roadblocker (talk) 09:14, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply. I have now created Delta Motorsport. The next part of what I will try to do is add more sources to the team pages and make them longer - including the results idea. Good to have all the pages created to some extent now though :) --Roadblocker (talk) 09:54, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Speedcar Series template[edit]

If you believe that the template is "useless", please nominate it for deletion instead of just blanking it. Thanks, --Midgrid(talk) 14:15, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Tappy/Pro1000[edit]

Thanks for the message. I only heard about this series a week ago. There was a feature in Autosport magazine about it. I think I have enough information to go on to create an adequate Wikipedia entry for it. I'll also edit Duncan Tappy with the information too. --Roadblocker (talk) 17:19, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Renault drivers[edit]

Hi, can you please stop adding the two additional Renault drivers to the 2009 Formula One season? You provide as reference the official Renault site, but in there it is clearly mentioned that De Grassi was a test driver for 2008, but not for the 2009 season. Kahn on the other hand is simply a demonstration driver (which means he drives an underpowered version occasionally, just for show), unrelated to testing of the car. Only actual test drivers should be mentioned in the article, not drivers loosely or not at all related to the F1 car. --Ferengi (talk) 07:41, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Grosjean[edit]

Why did you add Romain Grosjean to the 2009 Formula One season article. Nowhere in the reference did it state that Grosjean had been announced as a Renault race driver. Only when he is can you add him to the article. It has taken me time to revert the changes you made, particularly as I got stuck in an edit conflict, and then write this message to make sure that this doesn't happen again.

P.S. I've just seen the speculative drivers table on your userpage. What is the point in it because it is all unsourced rumours?

I do not want to have to speak to you about this again. mspete93 [talk] 18:40, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Renault have not confirmed Grosjean. Simple as that. Now please stop wasting my time. mspete93 [talk] 18:45, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

2009 F1 season[edit]

Please be careful not to infringe WP:3RR. I'm not saying that you have done so, but it appears that you may be in danger of doing so. FWIW, no drivers should be added to the table until they have competed in a F1 race. Mjroots (talk) 18:51, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Talk page[edit]

This talk page is designed for other editors to be able to discuss things with you. Ignoring other editors and telling them that you don't care what they say is not how things get done on Wikipedia. Simply saying "I don't care what others think, I'm going to do what I want" wont make your edits stick any better. This mentality is not one that is helpful to Wikipedia. You need to discuss things with people and be prepared to back off when you are doing something incorrectly.

You have two ongoing disputes over Renault drivers immediately above, and you have done nothing to address these issues. I suggest you start there. IIIVIX (Talk) 21:41, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

SF race teams - Roma and Flamengo[edit]

Could you please post a source showing that Roma and Flamengo have swapped race teams, as they are currently not listed as having changed on the official entry list at http://www.superleagueformula.com/superleague/News-Media/Media-area/Entry-list . 91.107.30.87 (talk) 18:30, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

List of unreleased Coldplay songs[edit]

Hey Officialy Mr X thanks ALOT! you are a life saver! Before you came along and supported me I was thinking that no one thought that that article was good enough. (I know it needs more sources) But you proved me wrong. I hope that this article survives this AFD because if it does then it will be the first article that I have ever made. And PS just because my name is Coldplay Expert does not mean that im crazy about them or something like that, Im also very good at history related topics too.--Coldplay Expert (talk) 20:35, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Season category pages[edit]

Please do not add pages like 2009 Formula One season to the Category:2009 in motorsport. F1 and Indycar have their own categories each year, and these are then in the motorsport category themselves. Hope that makes sense. Thanks - mspete93 [talk] 12:53, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

Unreleased Songs[edit]

Hey, where did you get/find/obtain a source for those new unreleased songs by coldplay? there seems to be enough to make a whole album!--Coldplay Expert 17:57, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Thanks, have they been heard by anyone. like were they played on the show or do bootleg versions exist? Could they be on the next ablum or are they like St. Stephen and Bloodless Revolution (which means they have been shelved).--Coldplay Expert 18:05, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

You got to see how many unreleased songs are on the list of Coldplay songs section...Its HUGE! (LOL)--Coldplay Expert 22:54, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Viva la Vida Tour[edit]

  1. Per WP:CITE, please provide inline citations when adding a new leg to the tour. Don't just add the link to the edit summary.
  2. User:72.198.84.83 has made WP:MOSFLAG-violating edits for sometime and they've been reverted by multiple editors across multiple tour articles. Your edits were just adding to that editor's problematic contributions. Again, we make edits in accordance with existing Wiki policies and policies. Thanks. --Madchester (talk) 20:01, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

New articles[edit]

Is there any chance you could expand slightly on your new articles? Yes, they need creating, but surely quality is more important than quantity. It would be better to have just a few articles that provide information rather than loads of pages that tell you nothing other than the name and occupation (racing driver) of the person in question. Thanks, and keep up the good work - mspete93 [talk] 16:32, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

You're still creating articles indiscriminately. If you can't write anything more than stubs, that's not a problem, but at least mention why those teams and drivers are notable, such as "Motopark Academy won the Formula Renault Eurocup in 2006]" or something like that. Simply being a motorsports team is not enough to insure notability and it might lead to the articles being summarily deleted without a need for discussion. Oh, and Euroseries 3000 is far from a notable series, it's pretty minor in importance (Felipe Massa is pretty much the sole exception) and full of drivers who failed to impress in the regular ladder. --Pc13 (talk) 16:48, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Australian Formula Ford Championship[edit]

OK, can you please stop with such an unnueccesary edit? Putting flags in such a low level domestic series is really, not only unneccesary, but you've got several of them wrong. So please, stop the obsession of splashing every table you see with colour. --Falcadore (talk) 19:00, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

In what way was it constructive? Is there really a lot of doubt that the majority would be Australian? And also - why only do half the list? Should do all or none, not half-half. In a series where a lot of nationalites compete there is some value in flags, but not here. --Falcadore (talk) 19:18, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

Girondins de Bordeaux (Superleague Formula team)[edit]

I would suggest putting this article up for deletion as there has been no news about this team since the start of the season. Have also removed it from the future section in the Superleague Formula template as it is unlikely they will appear. --Roadblocker (talk) 22:36, 26 October 2009 (UTC)


SLF Game[edit]

The game has officially been released at www.slfgame.com. I know SLF's official sites (including Twitter and Facebook) have not mentioned it, but the slfgame site is official and has been referenced by many gaming sites. It is available to download on that site from yesterday, and I have even already tried it. --Roadblocker (talk) 10:57, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Macau GP[edit]

As you might think these support races are significant, but does everybody else think so. Just to ask, did you read the talk section before you decide to revert, you have not asserted why these support races is significant to the main 3 which, including these is like including every support races to the main race. Donnie Park (talk) 14:08, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

F1 2010[edit]

I hate to have to be the one to do this, but it has to be said: would you mind putting a little more thought into what you add to the 2010 F1 page? You evidently contribute a lot to Wikipedia, but I'm afraid I haven't seen you add anything of value to the 2010 page. Your blank table was unnecessary. Your list of teams was redundant because of the table further down the page, and it was misleading because Mercedes is not a part of FOTA. Your updates to the table itself have been reversed countless times. Your naming of Virgin as "Manor Virgin Racing" openly contradicted the source you listed, which was simply "Virgin Racing". Please just stop and think for a moment before you edit in! I have no qualms about bringing moderator action about to people who vandalise, but you're clearly not vandalising at all. You're just not thinking about what you're doing, and in the process you're creating more work for everyone else. If you're uncertain about something, ask on the talk page. Wikipedia is not a news service, and when you start treating it like one, you start getting misleading and often incorrect information going. The accuracy of what we edit in is far more important than the speed with which we get it right. So please, take a moment before you edit again - because if you keep going the way you're going, you'll have to answer up to the moderators. Prisonermonkeys (talk) 00:15, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

For Mjroots (who has apparently given himself superiority to dish out edit bans for some reason which seems thoroughly arrogant to me) about Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents: there has actually been a discussion already around this issue on Talk:2010 Formula One season#Pre-season testing. My points, as usual, aren't really being considered even when my article ideas and suggestions are constructive and make logical sense. I find it a ridiculous system on Wikipedia in these areas. Officially Mr X (talk) 21:28, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
Officially Mr X, I have not given myself superiority to dish out edit bans. The tools were granted to me, as with all admins, by the consensus of the community in an RFA. WP:3RR is a bright-line rule, which you broke. You have been around long enough to know this, hence the short block. I checked the talk page of the article being warred over and saw no discussion there. Mjroots (talk) 21:39, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

2010 F1 season[edit]

I've had a note from another editor re your editing of 2010 Formula One season. I don't see anything really disruptive myself, and the source you used to back up the addition of Jarno Trulli appears to meet WP:RS.

Driver renames[edit]

I see you are shifting the names of several racing drivers to Driver (racing driver). This is of course correct, but it's only half of the task. Because now there are a large, a very large number of driver links on other pages. Are you going to fix those, or write a bot to do so for you or leave the task half finished? --Falcadore (talk) 00:48, 25 December 2009 (UTC)

Try the link What links here, in the toolbox on the left of screen. --Falcadore (talk) 12:10, 25 December 2009 (UTC)
That's why it hasn't been done previously. But since you've started now, you've better finish it.
No idea how to program a bot for the task. I'm sure there are guidelines for it somewhere. --Falcadore (talk) 22:01, 25 December 2009 (UTC)
Hi Officially Mr X. Forgive me for "eavesdropping", but I think you have several options. You could lodge a request at Wikipedia:Bot requests for someone to configure an existing bot to do the job for you, but I suspect they will turn you down because (a) there aren't enough articles to make it worth their while and (b) the links aren't really broken in the first place (see WP:NOTBROKEN). Probably the most efficient method would be for you to make the changes yourself using the AWB tool - I estimate it would take you a couple of hours to make the changes once you have the tool installed. Or, you could always just revert the moves... You may also find this discussion of interest. Regards. DH85868993 (talk) 23:16, 25 December 2009 (UTC)
Oh yes, of course, another option is "do nothing" (in fact that's what WP:NOTBROKEN suggests you should do). I was just proposing different ways you could fix the links if you wanted to. DH85868993 (talk) 13:34, 26 December 2009 (UTC)
Hows fixing those re-directs going? YOu going to do it, or leave others to? --Falcadore (talk) 13:22, 27 December 2009 (UTC)
Double re-directs are supposed to be removed where they exist, it affects speed of accessing pages when they flick through one or two re-directs. You created several hundred of these errors, the responsibility is yours. You don't want to do it, then shift the names back to what they were. --Falcadore (talk) 13:33, 27 December 2009 (UTC)
So you're not going to. Thanks. Thanks so much. What a bloody mess. --Falcadore (talk) 23:04, 27 December 2009 (UTC)
You're still moving more of them? For gods sake will you stop! You're clocking up hundreds of fixes, and I must say they are on touring car drivers for the most part which you never get involved in so the , O'll fix them if they I come across them was very disingenious. That very fact that someone, IE, me, had comlained about you doing this already, makes such a move a controversial moves and there has to go to WP:RM. Can you show some respect for other edittors? --Falcadore (talk) 23:39, 27 December 2009 (UTC)
Have you at the very least checked for double-redirects as per: Help:Moving a page#How to move a page ? --Falcadore (talk) 00:26, 28 December 2009 (UTC)
Thank you. --Falcadore (talk) 03:24, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

Replacement of {{Motorsport season}} templates[edit]

Hi Officially Mr X. I was wondering why you replaced the {{Motorsport season}} templates with hardcoded table code in the World Touring Car Championship season articles, e.g. here, here and here? Thanks. DH85868993 (talk) 00:45, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for identifying the shortcomings of the {{Motorsport season}} template. I've added a couple of new parameters so the template can now handle "non-standard" previous and next seasons. Regards. DH85868993 (talk) 14:03, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Infobox motorsport championship[edit]

Please stop changing the line from inaugural2 to inaugural - have you seen what that does? inaugural2 allows you to direct link to seasons, or to have no link at all, but inaugural links straight to the year in motorsport category which quite often is either wrong, or irrelevant. --Falcadore (talk) 14:42, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

Richard Lyons (racing driver)[edit]

I believe you made this move? This shouldn't have been done for a number of reasons, firstly because (auto racer) is a widely used disamiguation term, essentially the Americanisation of (racing driver), but it looks like you've performed a cut 'n' paste move instead of using the move systems. While I understand you did this because the Move would not work because Richard Lyons (racing driver) already existed as a redirect. The correct procedure here is to nominate the page for a move at WP:RM. Why? Because with a cut 'n' paste move you lose an articles edit history. --Falcadore (talk) 21:08, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

I noticed you had renamed F3 Brazil Open to Formula 3 Brazil Open again. This time you also removed the reference I had added. Why do you keep renaming it? I hope you could explain your acts as no source use the longer form but obviously it is, for some reason, very important for you to have it used.

It would also be nice to hear why do you think Toyota Racing Series should be included it the list of F3 series. 91.155.238.81 (talk) 08:15, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

European Touring Car Template[edit]

I've noticed the red link on your user page for the Template:European Touring Car Cup years, indicating you plan to create it. Before you do, I would like to suggest that you do it at Template:European Touring Car years, so that Pre-2005 championships can be included, as I have recently created 2004 European Touring Car Championship season and plan to create seasons 2001-03 and 2005-09. This will save work later. Thanks - mspete93 18:53, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

Formula Volkswagen South Africa Championship[edit]

In my opinion this series should get its own article as it doesn't have very much in common with the ADAC Volkswagen Polo Cup (single seaters <-> touring cars). As the article has been created by you, I would prefer you splitting it. :-) --78.42.28.167 (talk) 14:28, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

SF templates[edit]

I think the split templates are needed. It was awkward and too cluttered before.

Thank for your reply. Don't worry, I was never going to attempt a Future of SF page, but the Broadcasters page is passable, I'm sure I can make that page better with more references etc. I'll expand the 2009 race reports over the next couple of weeks and make sure Adria 2010 and the Bourdeaux pages get deleted. --Roadblocker (talk) 20:02, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

"You TEST my patience"[edit]

No. Prove that testing is sufficiently notable for the coverage. Don't get mad. Justify it in words other than "it's important". --Falcadore (talk) 10:20, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

I have never said it is not interesting. What it is not is notable. Wikipedia is not a statistics resource. It is not a repository of trivia. If it is important to young drivers then the detail belongs on the individual driver pages.
Of course teams complain about testing bans. But that again does not make testing result notable. I may make the complaint notable.
The material placed on Wikipedia is not what it interesting it is what is notable. Testing can best be represent in Wikipedia motorsport articles with one or two sentences without graphs. Those few interested in test times have plenty of opportunity to look up those test times through the websites of the series, or the various other statistics based web resources.
You have a wonderful passion for this. I just wish you could write more sentences and less tables. More content, less trivia.
If you are so convinced I am so far from wrong, bring it up at the Wikiproject. The growing consensus of the last month has been to scale back on the insignificant. This is merely an extension of that trend. --Falcadore (talk) 10:44, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
then comes the complaint that articles are too short - I have never, ever seen such a complaint. I don't really consider a fiction Japanese animated drama for children is really relevant to the discussion. How much coverage do you see of practice Tennis matches? Of Boxing spars? Where are the Wikipedia tables covering Freestyle aerial skiing maneuvers achieved while practicing for the Olympics? What is notable to drivers is not important here. The drivers can look up the test sheets while standing in pitlane, they are not going to look it up on Wikipedia. It is not Wikipedia's role to record minuate.
It is perhaps important to remind you that motorsport fans are NOT the target audience of Wikipedia, but rather the general public. --Falcadore (talk) 11:11, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
I understood the intent of your Pokemon point, it just isn't relevant. --Falcadore (talk) 12:21, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

Waiting in Line[edit]

Hi. As you probably know, "Waiting in Line" has been listed as an unreleased song by Coldplay. The question is though, is it? The source that I got that mentioned the song said that Waiting in Line was either a seperate song that did not make the final cut for Parachutes or any B-side for it (AKA: a song like Famous Old Painters, Something Ain't Right or Deserter ect..) or it was a seperate song that was writen alongside Shiver but the two were eventually fused together to creat the song that we know today. So which one is it? We may have flase info on our hands if it turns out to be the former.--Coldplay Expért Let's talk 02:25, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

No, Waiting in Line was never played live or leaked onto the internet. I have no clue about it other than the name. I may very well be an early title to Shiver or was morphed into the current song. As for the other songs, name all of the songs that you never heard of and I'll tell you about them. Every one of them existed but only a handfull have been played live (Ladder to the Sun) and most were just recorded for an album and then scrapped and never heard by any other listeners other than the band and their friends. EX:(Echo My Name)--Coldplay Expért Let's talk 01:50, 27 February 2010 (UTC)
Ok well you said
Okay I haven't heard of these:

1. Firstly, "Mooie Ellebogen", which is listed as a released song from "Clocks"? 2. In fact, here are the songs I have actually heard extracts to, so I know definitely exist: A Ghost, Bloodless Revolution, Bucket for a Crown, Christmas Lights, Harmless, Idiot, Ladder to the Sun, Lukas, Ode to Deodorant, Solid Ground, So Sad, Sweet Marianne, The Dubliners, Wedding Bells, Where Is My Boy? and Your Love Means Everything, Part 2. 3. These are the songs I am aware of being listed in Prospekt notes or on video clips: 1000 - 1, Car Kids, Cartoon Head, Cartoon Heart, Drunks and Guns, Famous Old Painters, First Steps, Gardeners on the Frontline, If All Else, If I Ever Fall in Love Again, In Isolation, Leftrightleftrightleft, Love in a Lethal Dose, Loveless, Mining on the Moon, Spanish Rain, St. Stephen, The Fall of Man, The Man Who Swears and Vitamins. 4. So these are new to me: A View from the Top, Blasphemy, Call Me, December, Deserter, Déjà Vu, Echo My Name (I Can't Believe You're Gone), Eyes for Eyes, Fingers Crossed, Fury, Goodbye and Goodnight, If She Comes Back, Love I'm So Tired, School, Someone to Love, Something Ain't Right, The Blue Room (never knew it was intended as a song), The Butterfly, This Hollow Frame, Turn Your World Around, (Waiting in Line) and Your World's Turned Upside Down.

In order, "Mooie Ellebogen" was a Dutch song that was written by a friend of the band and was put on special release of the Clocks single. A View from the Top, If She Comes Back, and Someone to Love were all preformed in a soundcheck in Norway back in 2002. More than likely these songs were written for AROBTTH but were scraped. Even so, they were still preformed in secret during a soundcheck and were recorded by a few listeners, a kid from Norway finally uploaded them to Youtube a few months ago. However the quality fothe songs are terrible and you can only make out a few words and the chorus in each song. Blasphemy, Déjà Vu, Echo My Name (I Can't Believe You're Gone), Fury, Something Ain't Right, and Turn Your World Around werea ll written for X&Y and were even on the first proposed tracklisting for the album. However they were all scrapped in later proposals and were never played live or even leaked onto the internet. However, Echo My Name (I Can't Believe You're Gone) may be an early version of Til Kingdom come. Deserter, Eyes for Eyes, Fingers Crossed, This Hollow Frame and Your World's Turned Upside Down were all written for AROBTTH and were scrapped. None of them (with the exeption of Your World's Turned Upside Down) were ever played live or leaked onto the internet. Call me and Love I'm So Tired were written and preformed during the first few years of the band and were even recoded by a girl at one of their first concerts. However, the recoding has yet to be released onto the internet or anywere else for that matter. December was one of the fist 10 songs written by the band but was never preformed live (that I knwo of) and was never released. However, the first line of Violet Hill contains a lyric fromt he song Was a long and dark December. Goodbye and Goodnight was written for Viva and was on the leaked demos (along with Bloodless Revolution) I have it. School was also written for Viva and was the intro to Rainy Day but was later scrapped. However, the first "quiet" half of Death and all his friends is the entire song. The Butterfly was also written for Viva and played ina charity concert by CM but was never recorded or played ever again, so we'll likely never hear it. The Blue Room and Waiting in Line were mentioned in a tracklisting for Parachutes on Coldplay.com back in 1999 but both were scrapped. I think that was the last of them....--Coldplay Expért Let's talk 17:20, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

Formula Abarth[edit]

Hi! you, me and Cs-Wolves are editing the Formula Abarth section (new italian junior formula), i'm writing the same message to Cs-Wolves as well.

  • How do you know BVM - Target racing has number 8 and 9?
  • Why don't we leave Teams and drivers without personal page in black? without red link! It's stupid to create a page for drivers who probably we will never see again in the future....

this is an entry level formula and only top drivers will become famous....

  • I suggest to create a page for Raffaele Marciello only, due to his involvement with Ferrari Young Drivers Academy

Major events in circuit articles[edit]

I notice you've taken to adding Superleague Formula to a bunch of circuits in their major events, I'm leaning towards removing them, though not for the reason you might assume. The articles are about the circuits. Major events should list the major events in the circuits history, the races which have shaped its story, rather than a list of contemporary events. To use Monza as an example, the Races of Two Worlds which was short in history but dramatic in impact as American roadsters raced against European Grand Prix cars would be considerably more important for Monza's story rather than just another open-wheel ladder series Formula no matter what its marketting appeal may be. For some of the more modern much younger circuits, it could be that Superleague would be considered a significant event for them, but mostly it won't. It should be representative of all of its years, not just this year. --Falcadore (talk) 22:58, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: A1GP Team Malaysia[edit]

Hello Officially Mr X.

British F3[edit]

Yeah, I changed it on the fly, my apologies. It was just cycling through the older seasons that I noticed that Romain Grosjean was listed as the winner in the Pau rounds a few seasons ago that swung my mind this way. With the Euroseries teams likely to enter the British series at some point, we could have a situation in which the best British runner is halfway down the main results and may confuse users that aren't fully aware of the system. Also, apologies for not replying to your message sooner. Cs-wolves(talk) 18:33, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

I've still got to get round to that, funnily enough! I'll probably get round to that later on, as I've seen Super GT pop up on my watchlist with your results in the calendar! Cs-wolves(talk) 18:58, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I've probably been slightly critical when it comes to that. It may look like from the edits I'm frustrated by it, but I'm not. I just think it looks a lot cleanlier with full, expanded references rather than just a bare link. Most of the FAs and GAs have expanded refs so if it ever came to the pushing of an article up to such standards, half of the work has already been completed! Cs-wolves(talk) 19:02, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
Yes, very true. Usually I would update the driver pages after doing the season pages, but have fell behind in that very woefully. I've found a point in the watchlist where I know where I am, and am working back from that. Might take a few days to rectify but should be up to standard eventually. Sometimes there just isn't enough hours in the day! Cs-wolves(talk) 19:15, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Re:FORIX[edit]

Sadly, I don't have full access to the site. I can get limited access through a feed, but that's all. Apologies. Cs-wolves(talk) 18:50, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

Your query is related to this but you can access a limited FORIX site via their Twitter account. It may be slow to update but you can usually access the information necessary there. Sure, you have to search through a lot of "tweets" due to it being 20 per section but you'll get there. What you have to understand is that people may not necessarily fill in the information that is left unknown and then it all comes down to whether the person does come back and find it. However, the information may not be readily available immediately and thus the question marks appear, I can see where you are coming from.
The idea of being ungrateful is unfounded because I'm not; I'm actually glad of such assistance when updating the stuff. Sometimes I fall behind in the work of updating it and it's good to have help. The referencing you could improve upon however: See Wikipedia:Bare URLs as to why bare URLs should be avoided. If the tone sounded horrific, I must sincerely apologise. Also, sorry for the lateness of the reply. Cs-wolves(talk) 16:52, 30 August 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for the kind words, and it means a lot to have people understanding one another on somewhere where it is more likely to have IP vandalism than constructive editing! When I was first on here, I was the same - poor referencing and the like but going through has made me realise that other users should be tutored into the realms of good editing. It shouldn't be a rush to get everything on the wiki as soon as it happens (mid-race F1 updates by WrcF1 have been shot down quite rightly!) but it should be laboured in how it is approached. If you need any help with the work or publisher parameters when referencing, just leave a note on my talk page! Cs-wolves(talk) 14:35, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

Revertion of your edits[edit]

Sorry if it looks as though I'm on a mission to revert your edits tonight - I really don't want it to appear that way. I'm just ensuring that what we're doing matches the sources given. Hope you understand. (You may realise after a recent confrontation with another user that I'm keen not to upset other key regular editors like yourself) :) - mspete93 21:14, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:4 Can Keep A Secret If 3 Of Them Are Dead.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:4 Can Keep A Secret If 3 Of Them Are Dead.jpg.

Template:Keane[edit]

Hello. I do not understand why you undid my edition for the template by explaining it as messy, because I did not substantially change the cell's contents. Since some text overlapped the template table's borders, I applied the best practice in code as suggested in

Nor for me to remove this[edit]

No one is immune to their decisions being questioned; I am very much allowed to remove tags that have no rationale whatsoever. I won't restore them, but db tags with no reason can and should be removed; even if it had a reason, I could remove it and force you to take it to TfD. The Blade of the Northern Lights (話して下さい) 20:08, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

I'm not saying they should be kept, just that I can/should remove speedy tags with no rationale. If it had at least something, I'd have left it alone; it looked like someone had been screwing around with the template rather than someone actually looking to get the template deleted. No matter now, really; like I said, I'm not going to mess around with it, because the template is a duplicate. The Blade of the Northern Lights (話して下さい) 21:21, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Trusted source[edit]

Who says it's a trusted source? In any case, it even says that the drivers aren't confirmed yet. Wait for the team or drivers, or a proper authoritative source to confirm it. Plus, try linking to the English version - this is the English language Wikipedia, not Italian. Bretonbanquet (talk) 18:27, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Anyway, the same "trusted source" published the next day that Willi Weber won't announce anything on Hulkenberg until mid-January because they're talking to other teams as well. In short, the first story was premature, which is why it's not a reliable source. Bretonbanquet (talk) 18:34, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Under Cover of Darkness[edit]

Please read WP:MUSIC and WP:GNG to understand why this page should not yet exist. The song currently fails the notability criteria at WP:MUSIC and the article is not sufficiently well referenced to establish notability as per WP:GNG. See:

  • "A topic is deemed appropriate for inclusion as a standalone article if it ... has received significant coverage in reliable secondary sources"
  • "All articles on albums, singles or songs must meet the basic criteria at the notability guidelines, with significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject."
  • "Most songs do not rise to notability for an independent article and should redirect to another relevant article"
  • "Notability aside, a separate article on a song is only appropriate when there is enough verifiable material to warrant a reasonably detailed article; articles unlikely ever to grow beyond stubs should be merged to articles about an artist or album."

I trust that this explains the reasoning for the redirect. Unless you are going to address the notability issues, do not revert again. Cheers, Nouse4aname (talk) 08:58, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

Discussion on linking to streamed copies of albums[edit]

Wikipedia policy allows us to link to legal streamed copies of albums. It would be useful to draw up a guideline on how and when to link to such albums; however, there is concern that it may not be appropriate as the music would not be available in all parts of the world. Is the benefit of having access to the music for most users outweighed by the fact that some users will follow a link to find the music is not playable in their region? Your view would be helpful at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Albums. SilkTork ✔Tea time 02:27, 16 December 2011 (UTC)

HRT and Ma Qinghua[edit]

Hi Mr. X,

Will you please stop adding Ma Qinghua as a HRT test driver on the 2012 Formula One season page? Although he appears on the official site of the team, the site itself does not give any explanation as to his role within the team; it simply gives a summary of his career. If you follow this link and this one, more details are given. Ma is a member of HRT's development programme. He does not attend races or take part in practice sessions the way other test drivers (like Valtteri Bottas) do. He will only take part in the Young Driver Tests later this year, and, as per consensus, participating in the YDT is not considered to be notable enough for inclusion in the team and driver table.

So please, stop including him in the table. He is not considered to be a test or reserve driver. Prisonermonkeys (talk) 10:00, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

It's causing the "Rounds" column to take on an excessive width, and with the limited space on the page - because of the pictures to one side - it's throwing the entire thing out of line. I'm aware that this is a purely cosmetic thing, triggered by the width of the overall page, but I have see it happen on five different monitors, some of them quite large, so this is doubtless something that most users will see. In the interestes of keeping the table properly aligned, Grosjean's appearances should be spaced onto two lines. Wikipedia might have done something one way before, but that doesn't mean it is the only way that it should be done. We can always use WP:IGNORE in this instance.

Test drive[edit]

Pedro de la Rosa is assisting Ferrari with simulator development. He's not even driving an actual Formula One car. If he's not driving a car, then he's not a test driver. The359 (Talk) 05:57, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
