Welcome[edit]

Hello!

I've noticed that you've been posting to a good number of the automotive articles recently. We're always looking for more enthusiasts to help out with these pages.

I'd like to invite you to join the WikiProject Automobiles, which is an area for the discussion of layouts, conventions, and organization of the automotive articles.

Good luck and happy editing! --Milkmandan 01:09, 2005 Feb 14 (UTC)

It looks like your post to my talk page got truncated, but no big deal. I'm not sure what gave you the idea that I thought you had edited the Nash Motors page—the only thing that I can think is that we get a lot of anonymous edits, and it's pretty regular for members of the community to ask others to take a look. There's a notice on my talk page about that article...but nah, I didn't link you to it.
Also, would it be possible for you to include some source information on your images? I usually drop a note into the photos that I've taken that indicate that I'm releasing it into the public domain (or the GFDL, which I usually use); for public domain websites, I presume the procedure would be to include a link on the Image's page and a copy of the text that releases it into the PD. It's not strictly necessary, but there's usually a lot of confusion when someone wants to use an image for another WikiMedia project (say, the Spanish or German language wikipedia) and they can't verify that the source is actually PD. Thanks!
--Milkmandan 01:52, 2005 Feb 14 (UTC)
One more thing, too: it's common practice to sign posts on talk pages with four tildes (i.e., ~~~~). It makes figuring out who is who a whole lot easier. Unfortunately, there are a bunch of these hidden trends that aren't too obvious when first starting out at the Wikipedia. They're technically documented, but I certainly had a hard time figuring out what was important and what wasn't when I first started, and accordingly made a lot of mistakes. --Milkmandan 02:30, 2005 Feb 14 (UTC)
Hah pardon my American-ness; I forget that other keyboard layouts exist (although I do personally use Dvorak Simplified Keyboard). On my layout, tilde is above the backwards apostrophe character ... although I'm not sure if that helps. It is most certainly on the bar of characters below the Wikipedia edit form, though. It's the left character in the third-from-last group. --Milkmandan 03:29, 2005 Feb 14 (UTC)

alright. Sorry for the reposts, but I'm still trying to learn how to use this and kept hitting the back button to rephrase and fix my comments Diego440 03:32, 14 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Auto images[edit]

Thanks for all the great photos! Are they all your own pictures? Wow, you must have quite an archive! Note that the Wikifolks will be asking you to add copyright info to the image pages. I'm surprised someone hasn't bugged you about that yet... Well, welcome and thanks! --SFoskett 04:05, Feb 14, 2005 (UTC)

When adding images to pages with an infobox, please put the picture IN the box, as shown at Mazda RX-2 and others. If it's the only picture, it goes above the title. Otherwise, it goes below the model generation (see Mazda RX-7 for an example of this). Thanks! --SFoskett 03:22, Feb 15, 2005 (UTC)
Here's what I mean: "Infoboxes" are those tables to the right of some car articles (see Mazda RX-7 for example). We like to put a shot of each car there too. If you have a picture for a page with an infobox, it would be best to put it in the box instead of separate. To do this, format it like those on the RX-7 page. ie:
|-
|colspan=2|[[Image:rx7FB.jpg|250px|A first generation RX-7]]
Put this under the generation heading if there is one or at the top. And thanks again for the great pictures!--SFoskett 16:32, Feb 16, 2005 (UTC)

Welcome & thanks![edit]

More pictures are exactly what the car articles need! Hope you can post a lot more. RivGuySC 04:43, 14 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Image:Lexus-LF-A-Concept-'05.jpg[edit]

Are you sure that this is a PD image? I find it hard to believe Lexus would release this into the PD; much more likely that they still hold copyright but permit its reproduction; if so it (and any others you have uploaded) might be better tagged as # {{Promotional}} --Tagishsimon (talk)

Tilde-less?[edit]

Hmmm...you live on a Spanish-speaking island and there's no tilde on your keyboard? That must be inconvenient! RivGuySC 23:49, 14 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Nice Windsor picture[edit]

Hey, I just saw the Windsor picture that you added to the Chrysler Windsor page - very nice! user: stude62 user talk:stude62 00:57, 15 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Timo Glock[edit]

Excellent work there and on Charlie Whiting - I'd meant to work on both of those, but I never got around to it. Keep it up! — Dan | Talk 22:37, 16 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Great! If you're interested in F1, you might like to read and join Wikipedia:WikiProject Formula One. Be sure to add {{WikiProject Formula One}} to the talk page of any F1-related article you create, and feel free to list or remove articles from Template:WikiProject Formula One and Wikipedia:WikiProject Formula One/To-do. — Dan | Talk 14:51, 17 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Looks good, and be bold. However, since this is a custom template (i.e. you can feed it parameters) remember that if you change or add any parameters, the template will break on every page where it's used. So if you plan on doing that, check Special:Whatlinkshere/Template:Former F1 driver, and change those articles as necessary. Oh, and don't forget to change the example on WP:F1 as well. — Dan | Talk 23:28, 17 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Now that I look at it, it's only used on five driver articles, so that's no big deal anyway. — Dan | Talk 23:29, 17 Feb 2005 (UTC)


Image:Audi-A6.jpg[edit]

Hi. Are you sure that Image:Audi-A6.jpg is in the public domain? It looks like an Audi publicity photo to me. If it is, I think it would still be copyrighted, but you could claim fair use and use the {{promotional}} template. Either way, it would be good if you added some source info. Thanks, SamH|Talk 15:54, 26 Feb 2005 (UTC).

Image:Chrysler-300M-'00.jpg[edit]

Can you confirm that you took this image? Burgundavia (✈ take a flight?) 13:59, May 27, 2005 (UTC)

  • Cardomain.com says at the bottom "Copyright © 1998-2005 CarDomain Network, Inc. All rights reserved." which makes those images coyright violations. Basically, if the image is not specifically licensed under a free license, then it is copyright.

With that, could you please find all your images from this site, and dump a list on my talk page, so that I can delete them? Burgundavia (✈ take a flight?) 02:47, May 30, 2005 (UTC)

Images[edit]

I notice your images are well tagged in terms of licence, but they don't appear to have a source on some of them. Can you clear that up? If you need a hand, give me a shout. Burgundavia (✈ take a flight?) 14:05, May 27, 2005 (UTC)

Image:Koenigsegg-CCR-'04.jpg[edit]

Hi, I just wanted to ask where you got the photo from? Not even the Koenigsegg official site has any really good images of the car, only "artistic" photos. Thuresson 15:05, 22 August 2005 (UTC)

2005 USA-Race[edit]

DNS stands for when a car does not take a a race start. Makes sense. By having Ret listed that mean the driver has actually started in that race and will count a race starts towards the driver race start tally.. The formation lap does not count as a lap at all as it is not added towards the race classification. For when does a driver 'start' a Grand Prix? To my mind he does so only if he is on the grid when the flag drops or light goes green at the final start. Should a driver have failed to compete the formation lap, for instance (as was the case with Prost at Imola in 1991), he cannot truly be said to have started the race. In the case of restarted events such as the British GP in 1986, poor Jacques Laffite certainly did start the race, but this was declared null and void and he was not presented to take the restart, which is the only one that counts. For true official race results is best to get them off www.forix.com as they receive their race results from the officials. Yes I know formula1.com is official but not 100% official in statistics. If you decide to leave it as Ret then you must give all the drivers a race start count!

I have spend hours in researching and asking many F1 statistician who are famous and know more on Grand Prix. All the statisian I have contacted and got back told me it is actually DNS not Ret, they also have mention the formula1.com is not very accurate with their race results. The formula1.com is incorrect as listing as ret instead of DNS for 2005-USA. This were the responses from the following people. Renowned F1 statistians, like David Hayhoe or Autosport's Peter Higham agree that all Michelin drivers were DNS in 2005-USA, but consider a RET if a driver didn't made a re-start, for example. That was the common view in the past - no contemporary source listed Lauda as a DNS in 1976-Germany - and they simply ignore the current "null and void" FIA rule. I totally agree to change it as DNS not Ret as they didn't take part on the first lap.

Here is a intersting fact. Button will start his 100th race start in the 2005-China race. But according to wikipedia when doing the math by adding all Button race starts it would be his 101st race start in China as Button has been listed as Ret instead of DNS for this year 2005-USA race. Does this make sense to you. That means wikipedia will have an extra race start for all the drivers who have no started in the 2005 USA race have an extra race start which wouldn't be official to the drivers stats.

I am trying to help you all to have accurate data on Formula 1 on wikipedia. I DO beleive the formula1.com site doesn't not give out accurate race classifications. As I have been involved with FORIX and autosport.com for many years as my job is to look for incorrect data on their server. Andreas 04 October 09:36

F1 portal featured article[edit]

The F1 portal (in which I assume you have some degree of interest, as your name is listed on Wikipedia:WikiProject_Formula_One) is intended to have a regular rotation of a 'featured article'. I've swapped a few in and out over the last couple of months, but I think it would be better if there were more of a community attempt at deciding this, proposals, votes, that kind of thing. So - why not pop over to Portal_talk:Formula_One#Suggestions_for_Featured_Article: and make a suggestion. Ta. 4u1e 00:26, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

Image Tagging Image:Toyota-Ft-SX-Concept-'05.jpg[edit]

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Toyota-Ft-SX-Concept-'05.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then there needs to be an argument why we have the right to use the media on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then it needs to be specified where it was found, i.e., in most cases link to the website where it was taken from, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag then one should be added. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other media, consider checking that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. 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 any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Selected articles on Portal:F1[edit]

Hello again.

I dropped notes round a while back to those who have listed themselves at Wikipedia:WikiProject_Formula_One to ask for suggestions for selected articles on portal:Formula One. There was a pretty good response, both in terms of how it might work and of articles suggested. Damon Hill came out with the most support and was brought up to Good Article standard after a lot of work by Skully Collins and others before going on as the F1 portal selected article a couple of weeks ago. It is now at Featured Article Candidates as a Featured Article candidate (why not drop by and see if you can help polish it further?).

Several people who responded to the original request suggested that a monthly or bi-weekly 'Selected Article' could act as a catalyst for an improvement drive to get more articles up to a higher standard. Although it wasn't quite what I had in mind when I started, this seemed to work pretty well for the Damon Hill article, so I've drafted up a process for doing this more regularly. See Portal_talk:Formula_One/Management_of_selected_articles for details. Essentially the suggestion is that we vote for an article to improve every couple of weeks and at the end of the improvement process the article goes on the portal as the new 'Selected Article'. I'd be grateful for any comments on how this might work - I'm sure some of you are more familiar with things 'Wiki' than me - as well as your votes for the next candidate (by 16 July).

You may also want to help with the article Gilles Villeneuve, which was the next most popular after Damon Hill. The idea is to try and get it up to GA standard by 16 July and then put it on the portal as the 'Selected Article'. I hope you can help! 4u1e 15:05, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Wikiproject Automobiles Notification[edit]

Hi Diego440, you were on the list of members at WikiProject Automobiles and we are introducing a new way of listing members, as the old list was becoming too long. Our new method involves having all of our members in a category.

To add yourself to the category just add the userbox to your user page by putting {{Wiki Auto Project}} where you want the userbox. Alternatively if you don't like the userbox you can add [[Category:WikiProject Automobiles members|Diego440]] to your userpage.

If you no longer wish to be a member of the project, simply don't add the userbox or category, there's no pressure. Thanks for your time, James086Talk | Contribs 05:04, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

Image source problem with Image:Lincoln-Futura-Concept-'55.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:Lincoln-Futura-Concept-'55.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 07:45, 25 July 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. (ESkog)(Talk) 07:45, 25 July 2007 (UTC)
