Your recent edits[edit]

Hi, there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. On many keyboards, the tilde is entered by holding the Shift key, and pressing the key with the tilde pictured. You may also click on the signature button Button sig2.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot 10:20, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Good editing on Australian motorsport stuff. Have you joined the project yet? Wikipedia:WikiProject Australian motorsport. Seems like you know a bit.--NigelPorter 01:58, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Your edits on user talk pages[edit]

Just a reminder that calling someone a cock on his user talk page like you did at User talk:DH85868993 safely falls into WP:No personal attacks, so it might be worth not doing it again. Bretonbanquet (talk) 23:10, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

Doesn't change the fact that he is though. --NigelPorter (talk) 07:36, 8 May 2008 (UTC)
Stop throwing crap at each other. --Kpaspery (talk) 03:18, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

Race report links[edit]

Hi Greg. You may have noticed that I have reverted some of your edits to Sébastien Bourdais, Ho-Pin Tung, Gary Kwok, Fabio Fabiani, Franz Engstler, André Couto and Mak Ka Lok. It's fine (indeed preferable) for driver results tables to contain red links to the individual race reports, rather than a blue link to the general article about the race (e.g. results tables should link to 2011 FIA WTCC Race of Italy rather than FIA WTCC Race of Italy). That way, if/when the race report article is eventually created, the links are already in place. Also note that 2011 Baltimore Grand Prix is a disambiguation page, so articles should link to either 2011 Baltimore Grand Prix (IndyCar) or 2011 Baltimore Grand Prix (ALMS). Regards. DH85868993 (talk) 01:39, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

Question[edit]

A question on this: [1] How does Michael Whiting win Class Two driving a Class One car? --Falcadore (talk) 21:04, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Not sure on that. Can't remember if I got the results from Natsoft or Official web page. Will fix up. Good pick up Mark.--Greg Nail (talk) 21:05, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

Ken Smith Edit[edit]

Hi. How did you find out Ken Smith's birthday, and how do you know that his name is "Kenith Smith". I searched, but couldn't find any sources for these. Ross-c (talk) 10:45, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

Hey Ross. DOB was on Driver Database (think I put the link on the page. It does say 1941, but most sites I found say 1942). Full name on Queens honors list 1988.--Greg Nail (talk) 21:11, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Ah, I see. Thanks. Ross-c (talk) 20:38, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

For your consideration[edit]

Your passionate reply has given me pause for thought. You may wish to comment: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Motorsport#Am I out of line? --Falcadore (talk) 03:14, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

No need. You know where I stand. Lets get on with it.--Greg Nail (talk) 04:53, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

Premat results box[edit]

As I said in the edit summary, I changed it to the same format as the one on Maro Engel's page, which I thought gave a better representation of the results than the format previously used. KytabuTalk 04:21, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

But all other info boxes are that format. Refer to Will Power, Jonny Reid, Sébastien Bourdais, Richard Lyons, Ryan Briscoe, Vitantonio Liuzzi, Simon Pagenaud, Jeroen Bleekemolen, Mika Salo, to name but a few. Could you please change it back. Greg Nail (talk) 04:37, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
Done. Also changed Maro Engel's to the same format as the others. KytabuTalk 04:46, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
Good job. Greg Nail (talk) 04:57, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
I don't like that format at all. Any format that forces the results table beyond the edge of the page is a bad format. Prisonermonkeys (talk) 10:11, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

The EFDA does not exist anymore, so permission cannot be sought. The ad's were taken from a free magazine given out at the track. Dopey pricks!--Greg Nail (talk) 11:44, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

A list of people interested in coming, and a discussion space has been created at Wikipedia:Meetup/Brisbane/8. Hope to see you there! MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 10:39, 7 August 2015 (UTC)
