Userboxes[edit]

Hi, I noticed you're just using the indented list feature for userbox placement so I thought I'd direct you here, where you can see a lot of the different better ways to place and customise userboxes, such as with templates, etc. +Hexagon1 (t) 03:13, 2 August 2008 (UTC)


Ambox warning pn.svg

The article Carbontech has been speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This was done because the article seemed to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, but it did not indicate how or why the subject is notable, that is, why an article about that subject should be included in Wikipedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the notability of the subject may be deleted at any time. If you can indicate why the subject is really notable, you are free to re-create the article, making sure to cite any verifiable sources.

Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, and for specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for musicians, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. NawlinWiki (talk) 01:10, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

SEAT Cupra GT[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of SEAT Cupra GT, and it appears to include a substantial copy of http://www.diseno-art.com/encyclopedia/concept_cars/seat_cupra_GT.html. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material; such additions will be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 08:33, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of SEAT Cupra GT[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on SEAT Cupra GT requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must include on the external site the statement "I, (name), am the author of this article, (article name), and I release its content under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 and later." You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the 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 would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. -- Collectonian (talk · contribs) 17:31, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Seat Cupra GT track.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Seat Cupra GT track.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.

re your signature[edit]

Hi Pineapple fez - I was wondering if you'd mind changing your signature? It seems to be linked to Pineapple Fez instead of your user/talk page (User:Pineapple fez / User talk:Pineapple fez). Also, the only pictures that should be used in sigs are unicode ones (eg. Miscellaneous Symbols), as using image files can apparently cause server slowdown. Sadly, there is currently no representation of a fez, although unicode does have, for some reason, an astoundingly wide range of triangles, arrows and stars ♈ --Kateshortforbob talk 10:50, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

I came here intending to ask the same thing. Wikipedia:Signatures requires that a user's signature should link to their userpage or talkpage, if not both. This is to make communication easier. There are also multiple problems with using an image in your signature, as described here. Please try to get your signature fixed as soon as possible. ≈ Chamal talk ¤ 11:42, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
OK. Thanks for the tips guys, I will change it now. (I'll just leave the signature out for this one :P)
It's not fixed yet. It still points to the wrong page. - DustFormsWords (talk) 08:02, 17 May 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I just noticed and fixed it. Thanks! --Pineapple Fez 08:30, 17 May 2010 (UTC)

Elfin Sports Cars[edit]

Notice you've been doing some work relating to Elfins, and I've been wondering about trying to get hold of some information about Elfin Formula Vees. There have been several designs. The Formula Vee and the New Generation both get a mention but until recently the Crusader did not. Wanting to know when Crusaders were made, but also Elfin built a few Vees in a brief period of contested ownership after Cooper died and before Elliot took control. I think there are three such cars which, because of the contested ownership, and the wishes of Elliott, they are not refered to as Elfins. CAMS CoD rather idiotically today refers to them as HFVs (Historic Formula Vee). Wondered if you knew anything about either these the third and fourth generations of Elfin Vees. --Falcadore (talk) 07:43, 11 November 2009 (UTC)

Sorry :( I don't know much about any of the Elfin Formula Vees and a google search didn't seem to help but give a few drivers' names. I haven't seen any either, which doesn't help. I have only seen the 00s Elfins (MS8 Clubman and Streamliner, Type 3 Clubman and the Type 5 Clubman). Good luck in your research though! --Pineapple Fez 05:12, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

Deletion of Toyota Camry Hybrid[edit]

Hi. I though you might be interested in participation in this discussion Talk:Toyota Camry Hybrid#Restoring_this_article. There is a user that wants to merge all hybrid model specific articles with the article of the main model.-Mariordo (talk) 16:32, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

Hello there, I was notified by those in the electric vehicle community that some users are trying to purge wikipedia of electric vehicle articles by merging them with gas vehicles and then deleting the small sections left as unimportant. This must end now or this is about to become very ugly. We have fought too many battles with the oil companies to lose this one.--High voltage41 (talk) 17:55, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

Tata Nano[edit]

I'm sorry if you did not like my edits to Tata Nano. I really think I made the page better by shortening it. And I think I conserved most of the information that the page included before I started editing. I did cut some material facts, and here is a somewhat complete list:

  • Number of pre-orders
  • Price of the Maruti 800
  • A mention that the car was thought to open entrepreneurial-opportunities across India
  • Eco-friendliness
  • safety
  • speculation that the car might be a simple four-wheeled auto rickshaw
  • That the car was partly designed at Italy's Institute of Development in Automotive Engineering
  • That Bosch's subsidiary in India will be manufacturing the fuel-injection and brake systems for the Nano
  • That the Nano has 21% more interior space (albeit mostly as headroom, due to its tall stance) and an 8% smaller exterior compared to its closest rival, the Maruti 800
  • That Tata has set its initial production target at 250,000 units per year
  • The choices Tata faced due to rising material costs
  • That it is the first time a two-cylinder non-opposed petrol engine will be used in a car with a single balance shaft
  • That Tata filed 34 patents for the car
  • any mention of Girish Wagh
  • That the Nano passed the required Indian 'homologation’ tests
  • rear mounted engine discussion
  • diesel engine rumor
  • Guinness Book of World Records as the world's lowest cost production car
  • Comparison to the Model T
  • any mention of Mamata Banerjee, including his a hunger strike
  • a government ban of political parties holding meetings or processions at Singur
  • the death of Tapasi, a Save Farmland Committee campaigner
  • two incidents when a Nano caught fire

If you feel it necessary to add any of these data, by all means edit the page. Fleetham (talk) 18:07, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Maybe I sounded a bit harsh? Anyway, if you (or anyone, really) thinks that I should "reinclude" something please let me know and I will do so. Fleetham (talk) 06:25, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Well I'll try to re-add most of that information as it was actually quite relevant and import. As I said before, people who don't care about those things will just read the first paragraph anyway. Also, the record for being the cheapest car on sale is by FAR the most import fact about, and the only reason that makes the car very notable.--Pineapple Fez 08:17, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

Messy copy[edit]

I do think Wikipedia should be a collaborative effort, and I don't object to information being added to the Tata Nano page. But please don't add that info. by reverting the page to an earlier version. I understand you feel any and all information about the car should be on the page.

I don't disagree, the reason I dislike your reverts is because the page was messy and chaotic; each sentence seemed disconnected from its neighbors and one unrelated fact was mentioned after another.

The short of it is: I would appreciate it if you could rewrite the info you want to add into more pleasant copy (or prose, if you want), not simply revert the page to the mess it was before. Thank you :) Fleetham (talk) 00:17, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

OK, I will re-write certain sections that are important or quite relevant to the article in my Sandbox and then copy them in to the article. I have just dont the "Variants" section, covering the alternative fueled versions. Sorry if I sounded rude before aswell :)--Pineapple Fez 03:00, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

ok that would be great. I removed a lot of stuff because I wanted to hastily clean up the page, deciding that only rewriting the essential parts would be quicker. I said I was "editing for length" when I did that but really I was just lazy and didn't want to rewrite everything nicely. Fleetham (talk) 04:30, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Th!nk City[edit]

Hi. Just in case, I just want to let you know that I recently created a new article (stub) for the Th!nk City, bringing most of the content from the Think Global article. I though that you might be interested to improve and expand the new article. See you around.-Mariordo (talk) 02:12, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

Great! I had actually been pondering wether or not to create a new article for a while now so I'll definitely try to expand this article. --Pineapple Fez 07:50, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

PEVs[edit]

Hi again. This is to let you know that I nominated Plug-in electric vehicle for Good Article (see here.) I already formatted all refs at least with the simple format, so please use some kind of formatting for your future edits so that we can keep the GA minimum std. Also, since you are the other main contributor to this article, feel free to help me attend the recommendations of the reviewer. My main concern for passing GA are the tables that over time became to long. Thanks and see you around.-Mariordo (talk) 04:41, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

As one of the main contributors to this article, I think you might be interested in participating in this discussion here to split the article and create a new article and two list articles.-Mariordo (talk) 02:03, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

Merger[edit]

Any regrets to putting your hand up? OSX (talkcontributions) 05:42, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

Not really. Mariordo is throwing a tantrum but besides that, I think that we are making progress, at least on the non-hybrid and electric models.--Pineapple Fez 05:51, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
I've promised to open up 36+ individual merger discussions (all at once) in case any policy violation was committed (highly unlikely). Let's see what happens next. OSX (talkcontributions) 06:14, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
This becoming ridiculous. He's causing so much trouble when I suspect he is just protecting his precious hybrid pages. And his claims aren't even accurate. A discussion is to discuss, not to inform, then execute. Anyway, I have a feeling that an Administrator who knows a thing or two about cars will see through him, and this will be resolved. --Pineapple Fez 06:29, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
Yep. The same thing happened with the Camry and Elantra discussions. It is just a pathetic charade used to shut down the discussion which he knows will take a lot of effort to defend. Mark my words, if this was done on a case-by-case basis, he would quickly add non-encyclopaedic content to the article in question to justify its separation (he did this for both the Camry and the Elantra).
Last time I was accused for "attacking for his hard work", being "deconstructive", et cetera. However, this is far from the case—no decent content was removed—just excessive tables, such as a table comparing the fuel economy of the Hybrid Camry with every other hybrid for sale in the United States. Mariordo does some great work here, but as you said he can't see beyond alternative-power source vehicles, and so, considers them to be a league of their own.
There was no opposition to the Lexus RX and LS mergers because, they are "articles about luxury hybrids with low environmental value (hollow hybrids and muscle hybrids, as environmental advocates call them) ... as clearly in these cases indeed there is no merit for a dedicated article." This just shows how misguided his stance is: if the car is fuel-efficient, then it suddenly becomes notable, but if it does not get outstanding "gas mileage" then it is basically not notable and must make do with a small section to emphasise its weak efficiency. OSX (talkcontributions) 06:54, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
I'm glad I didn't enter the Camry discussion, from the looks of it he has some pretty devoted followers. But if he continues, at least we know that we can still resolve the issues surrounding the non-hybrid or electric cars. And on that note, I'm surprised that he hasn't directly commented on the electric vehicles, especially the i MiEV, which even I will miss if it is merged. Finally, is the place where he asked for Administrator assistance the right place to do so? When I red the table at the top of the page, it was only to do with personal attacks and such, which seems pathetic--wait, you already used that adjective--juvenile. Pineapple Fez 07:10, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
Well, apparently so. OSX (talkcontributions) 11:15, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

The tantrum at WP:ANI was unsuccessful, so he's asked another user to come to his rescue. OSX (talkcontributions) 04:44, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

Yeah I saw this morning. Its getting embarrassing associating with him, but meh. --Pineapple Fez 04:47, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
The overall consensus is probably to merge on a case-by-case basis. Did you want to pick a few articles to initiate discussions on? I was thinking of doing the hybrids first to get them out of the way (as we've have merged some of these already). OSX (talkcontributions) 11:20, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
Done. Sorry I took a while, I've just been busy lately. --Pineapple Fez 01:30, 19 December 2010 (UTC)
No worries. I have just transformed Hyundai Elantra LPI Hybrid into Hyundai Elantra (HD). OSX (talkcontributions) 01:13, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

Collaboration?[edit]

Hi, I don't know if this interests you at all, but I think Wikipedia needs an entry for the Geely Panda. Since you've created many pages on automobiles, I was wondering if you wouldn't like to collaborate on creating an article for this small Chinese car. I've written articles on car companies and car brands but not many on individual models.

But I think the Panda pretty notable. There's a lot of press coverage, it may be the first car to be sold online as well as in dealerships, and a variant sells in Taiwan and Vietnam. Also, it does not copy the exterior appearance of any Western models unlike some small Chinese cars do.

I've never collaborated with anyone on Wikipedia before, so I don't if I'm any good at it. And you may not be interested. But if you are, just send me a message. Fleetham (talk) 16:19, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

Sure, I'd love to help, however I am involved in a few sticky discussions so I won't be able to dedicate as much time as some other articles. Also, in my opinion I think the Panda resembles a Toyota Aygo, but that's just my opinion. Also again (sorry), there already exists an article for the tobe M'car, which I believe is just a badge engineered version. --Pineapple Fez 21:22, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, there are some differences between the M'car and Panda, the former being safer I guess. Maybe it does look like an Aygo (which would be called igo if sold in the US) and the headlights like some Alfa Romeo I saw on Top Gear, but it isn't as bad as some Chinese copies. Anyway, I don't know if the best way to start is simply to create the page and begin or if prior planning is warranted. I've made a planning page if you want to the latter, but if you'd rather not just create a page for it and let me know so I can help. Also, it might technically be called a "Gleagle Panda" but maybe you prefer "Geely Panda" or "Geely LC". Fleetham (talk) 03:28, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
It's possible that different names are for different markets in China. Or that journalists don't want to write the word "Gleagle". Or that the Panda existed before the creation of the Gleagle sub-brand. Geely makes motorbikes and some inland city (tier 3, tier 4 and tier 5 cities are all inland correction: all inland cities are tiers 3, 4, and 5.) dwellers may prefer the prestige a car made by a car-maker brings, while the rich, coastal cities don't care either way. So maybe it's called "Gleagle Panda" in Chaozhou or Lanzhou but "Geely Panda" in Shanghai (tier 1)? IDK, but I do know it's common for Chinese car-makers to only sell to a particular region. Hondas are prevalent in the South, but you would only find a Hafei in the North, for example. I don't know if Geely is a truly "Chinawide" company. Fleetham (talk) 03:48, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
I don't think it is a Gleagle Panda, because Google only returns with a Flickr picture, so unless you know can fine any other evidence, I think we should just use "Geely LC" because it's endorsed by Geely's English website, as opposed to "Geely Panda", which will be in the a.k.a section of the infobox. As for the testing page, I think we should use it (unless you're willing to spend more time on the article) so we can work at our own pace. --Pineapple Fez 04:19, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
I know it is a Gleagle because I've seen a picture of it bearing the Gleagle brand. Is this the testing page? Fleetham (talk) 05:16, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
Ah, yes, I have found a reference with the Gleagle logo. And yes, that is the testing page. Also, another quick point, it is sold as the LC in New Zealand, too, so that should be the title of the page to satisfy both Wikipedia:CARS/Conventions#Titles and Wikipedia:Common name#Common_names, on the belief that is goes by multiple names in China.--Pineapple Fez 05:39, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

AN/I thread[edit]

Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there currently is a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you.

Geely LC[edit]

Hey, I just wanted to ask if you were planning to add more to the User:Fleetham/pandaplanning page. If not, do you want to go ahead and create the page? I think we have enough to make a small article. Fleetham (talk) 02:23, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

No, I can't really find much more information. Perhaps when it is released in New Zealand and maybe in Australia, more information will be available. Also, I think you deserve to create the page, as you did most of the work. --Pineapple Fez 21:28, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
I would create it but then you couldn't put it on your frontpage. I'll remove all the extraneous stuff and then, if you want, you can create it adding appropriate stuff like "category: cars that look like Pandas".Fleetham (talk) 21:39, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
Haha. Ok, Thanks.--Pineapple Fez 21:43, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
I think it's complete, but the only reliable ref for Indonesia sales expired. User:Fleetham/pandaplanning Fleetham (talk) 21:50, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
Oh, actually can you do something else, too? I am not sure if the page uses correct British English throughout. If you could make sure it's consistent that would be great. Fleetham (talk) 21:58, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
Or Australian English, I don't know if that even exists though. Fleetham (talk) 21:59, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
I have just published the article and checked and it's written in Australian English and I think British English but I'm not sure about British English.--Pineapple Fez 22:02, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

BYD[edit]

Thanks for adding to the BYD auto page and sorry my response was, "get it to the history section". I probably should have read your contribution before commenting on it. Anyway, now that the PRC said "7% growth only" (although they always provide easily-achievable target GDP growth rates) and did some monetary policy tightening (made borrowing money more expensive a chore) such copying will disappear as if by magic? For some reason I think "yes", but maybe it's become an ingrained habit? Fleetham (talk) 02:44, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

Suzuki Alto[edit]

Hello, just wanted to mention that I removed the cleanup tag you placed on Suzuki Alto early last year. I feel that it is currently a much better article, but just wanted to give you a heads up so that you can replace it if you still find the article problematic. Best,  ⊂| Mr.choppers |⊃  (talk) 17:00, 23 April 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know; the article is much better now. I have also just made a few edits mostly to do with rearranging the images so that each infobox has one.--Pineapple Fez 22:12, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
Nice, except why remove the months? Their use is supported: Template:Infobox automobile.  ⊂| Mr.choppers |⊃  (talk) 18:45, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, I didn't realize. Is it acceptable to write the month instead? I think it would look neater. Also I moved the rear view image out of the infobox to the side, and replaced it with its relative frontal image, in accordance with WP:CARPIX.--Pineapple Fez 21:23, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
I prefer this - partially because any four-door Alto is actually sort of a Fronte, given Alto badges for certain export markets. Suzuki does like to confuse things. Personally, I like using numbers for months but not enough to make an issue out of it. I wonder whether consensus on this has been reached somewhere? Meanwhile I brought it up here, just so that we won't have to worry about it again. Hopefully consensus won't be hard to come by.  ⊂| Mr.choppers |⊃  (talk) 04:58, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
