A barnstar for you![edit]

"Dab-fixing aka soduku that matters." Great comment and reference by you Little Wink. Also a very useful tool as dab's are essential to knowledge management and that of which us Wikipedians care about; knowledge provenance in terms of the, "Greatest Encyclopedia on Spaceship Earth."

I don't know if I'm doing this correct, please bear with me. The Autovia Mulliner bodies car Reg. EYX 464, pictured in the panel was owned by my father for many years. I was with him when he bought it as a non-runner. A Master Mechanic, he had it running by the weekend, undertook much work on it with me and my brother as helpers. When the engine needed reboring, the strip down and rebuild was done on our kitchen table (Mum was very patient)! The car was a gem, I was fascinated by the centrifugal clutch, so simple and effective - most people assumed it was a fluid flywheel as the gearbox was manufactured by Armstrong-Siddley and a centrifugal clutch was unheard of on the whole. If you own the car, feel free to contact me for more information and pictures. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chewdadda (talkcontribs) 07:56, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

Hi Chewdadda. Thanks for the info, but I don't own the Autovia car. If you have pictures which you have created yourself you can upload them, see Help:Introduction to uploading images. LittleWink (talk) 09:48, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the message, I'll do that :-) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chewdadda (talkcontribs) 10:09, 26 April 2016 (UTC)


Dear LittleWink,

You reverted my edit to this article (explicit reference to Deutsch). I see your point. However, the confusion between (really) Dutch and Deutsch (German) seems to be systematic in US English (phonetically close), and i feel that your version does not address this problem.

  • Can we find a satisfactory way to explicitly settle this confusion?

Best regards, Hansmuller (talk) 12:02, 28 May 2016 (UTC)

@Hansmuller: Hi Hans. 'Deutsch' is already listed in the see also section of the 'Dutch' disambiguation page. That's enough according to WP:MOSDAB, but we could add a {{Distinguish}} hatnote for convince. LittleWink (talk) 17:06, 28 May 2016 (UTC)
@LittleWink, Hi LittleWink. You're right, Deutsch was mentioned twice, so i removed the second one. We're too late for "Not to be confused": it was already confused in the 18th century probably... Cheers, Hansmuller (talk) 19:49, 28 May 2016 (UTC)
