Welcome to WPF1. Ther is a Newsletter exclusive to WPF1 members. All we ask are things listed. Chubbennaitor 16:54, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

Lucas Di Grassi

Hi Cdhaptomos. I've reverted your change of moving Lucas Di Grassi to Lucas di Grassi. Di Grassi's official website consistently uses a capital 'D', so it seems reasonable for us to follow that example. Currently, all references to him within the English Wikipedia (that I'm aware of) also use capital 'D'. I'm more than happy to discuss the issue at Talk:Lucas Di Grassi, but if the consensus is that it needs to be changed, then we need to change it everywhere throughout Wikipedia. Regards. DH85868993 (talk) 22:24, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

WD

Could I ask y u removed the WD for the Monaco Grand Prix of Sato and Davidson. Chubbennaitor 20:59, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

What I don't understand is y for SA but not the drivers. I'd understand not every one and update per race but not just one WD and expect people to automatically know that they withdrew from every race ( as far as we know). Chubbennaitor 21:07, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

I know they weren't expected but they still withdrew didn't they. I know that if I'd just got interested in F1 and I saw the page I'd want to know why they haven't been marked down. They don't need WD but the white boxes would be fine. Chubbennaitor 10:34, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Never mind. They withdrew from everything but the decision is ok. Chubbennaitor 13:07, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Notability of Dionysus Explorer Scout Unit

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Dionysus Explorer Scout Unit 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 article (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. AndrewWTaylor (talk) 11:31, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Individual Explorer Scout units are just not going to meet our requirements for notability. Unlike, say, Vijay Mallya or Aberystwyth‎ (subjects on which you have edited in the past), the DESU is simply not of international relevance or interest. --Orange Mike | Talk 14:49, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Max Mosley.jpg)

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Max Mosley.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) 12:20, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Former F1 team infoboxes

Hi Cdhaptomos. I notice you are adding {{Former F1 team}} infoboxes to several articles. Good work! But may I make a request to save some rework later - would you be able to insert a space between flagicons and the associated text (e.g. United Kingdom Craig Pollock rather than United KingdomCraig Pollock), per WP:F1 standard practice? There's no need to go back and update the ones you've already done, but if you could do this for any future ones that would be good. Thanks. DH85868993 (talk) 17:24, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

On second thoughts, again in the interests of saving possible future rework, you might want to hold off on adding too many flags into the infoboxes - we have discussed the issue of flags in infoboxes a couple of times at WP:F1 (see Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Formula_One/Archive_12#Flags and Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Formula_One/Archive_13#Team_flags) and there is some feeling that adding flags for all the people in F1 team infoboxes might contravene Wikipedia:Mosflag#Do_not_emphasize_nationality_without_good_reason. Regards. DH85868993 (talk) 17:46, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:AFM.gif

Thanks for uploading Image:AFM.gif. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 18:22, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for fixing my error of accidentally removing Stirling Moss from the list of notable drivers for Connaught Engineering. DH85868993 (talk) 02:53, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Congrats on your excellent Connaught engineering page! Keep working to make it better! 195.194.57.194 (talk) 12:24, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

TwoChairs

Wikipedia is not a free webhost. Please write about the micronation you thought up on your own website, not Wikipedia. Stifle (talk) 11:43, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

I've copied the text of the last revision to User:Cdhaptomos/TwoChairs. However, the only way it will be able to become an article eventually is to back it up with multiple independent reliable sources. Please don't attempt to recreate the article until you have some. Thanks.--SarekOfVulcan (talk) 12:22, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Great! Just ell me wat you want to do to be a part of it. The last other roles we had were people writing articles for us but we've decided against that if you see what you want to do it ill be done.

RE: Welsh translation request

Thanks. :D I need the Wikimedia Foundation's donation form translated into Welsh (Cymraeg). The existing translation hasn't been updated since 2005. :'( If you would be willing to help, the source and workspace can be found on Meta-Wiki: m:Donate/cy. Thanks again for your help with this, it's very much appreciated. Cbrown1023 talk 21:30, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

Wow, that was incredibly quick, I'm impressed. :-) If you happen to know anyone else who speaks cy who would be willing to review your translation (we try to get the pages reviewed by at least one other person before we upload them), could you point them to the page? About the English pages, that is exactly what I would have told you to do, so thanks. :-) Cbrown1023 talk 23:45, 15 August 2008 (UTC)
I published it, you can see it here. :-) Also, if you are willing there is a template used in the thanks page that you could translate also (it's very short): m:Translation requests/WMF/OurProjects2006/cy. Cbrown1023 talk 00:16, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Hi Cdhaptomos. Thanks for adding the infobox to Vanwall. I've filled in the missing information. For future reference, information such as number of races, wins, poles, fastest laps, etc for former F1 teams can be found here. Regards. DH85868993 (talk) 01:38, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Two Chairs

Could you explain what Two Chairs is and how you became a part of it? I'm still trying to understand this because it doesn't have a proper explanation on what it is. Chubbennaitor 17:10, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

How do you become a citizen and does that become my official nationality and all those pages as a sub-page for you concerning Two Chairs might need to become actual pages. Chubbennaitor 16:40, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

If you look at the old Newsletters you'll see that that was deducted. The Newsletter was td that it was leaving it's point, the WikiProject. I had to fight for the results part of the NW and I won but everything you see is everything we can think of to do with the NW. If you can thin of anything else please mention it in the Next NW talk page. Chubbennaitor 19:10, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Oxford Wikimania 2010 and Wikimedia UK v2.0 Notice

Hi,

As a regularly contributing UK Wikipedian, we were wondering if you wanted to contribute to the Oxford bid to host the 2010 Wikimania conference. Please see here for details of how to get involved, we need all the help we can get if we are to put in a compelling bid.

We are also in the process of forming a new UK Wikimedia chapter to replace the soon to be folded old one. If you are interested in helping shape our plans, showing your support or becoming a future member or board member, please head over to the Wikimedia UK v2.0 page and let us know. We plan on holding an election in the next month to find the initial board, who will oversee the process of founding the company and accepting membership applications. They will then call an AGM to formally elect a new board who after obtaining charitable status will start the fund raising, promotion and active support for the UK Wikimedian community for which the chapter is being founded.

You may also wish to attend the next London meet-up at which both of these issues will be discussed. If you can't attend this meetup, you may want to watch Wikipedia:Meetup, for updates on future meets.

We look forward to hearing from you soon, and we send our apologies for this automated intrusion onto your talk page!
