2001 Australian Grand Prix[edit]

Hello:

The copy edit you requested from the Guild of Copy Editors of the article 2001 Australian Grand Prix has been completed.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Since you are heavily involved in motor racing articles could I ask if there is a consensus on recording times in the body of an article? Is the correct format 1 minute 23.217 seconds or 1:23.217? I found both in some articles I checked although the majority of times seem to be in the former format. Thanks.

Best of luck with the GAN.

Regards,

Twofingered Typist (talk) 12:41, 6 July 2019 (UTC)

  • @Twofingered Typist: No consensus has been reached on how to write lap times in the body of an article though personally I would write it out in the format of 1 minute 23.217 for readers who are unfamiliar with motor racing. MWright96 (talk) 07:30, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
Thanks very much for this information. Cheers Twofingered Typist (talk) 12:04, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

Porsche 919 Hybrid[edit]

Followup[edit]

Hey @MWright96: A GOCE coordinator, Reidgreg (talk · contribs), helped me review my edits on your requested GAN, Porsche 919 Hybrid. He has made some additional edits, and I've made numerous minor edits in accordance with his feedback. Feel free to check my talk page and the history of Porsche 919 Hybrid for details.

There are a few minor things I wanted to discuss with you. Quotes from Reidgreg are in blue, and quotes from the article are in turquoise.

  • Its engine was a two-litre (120 cu in) 90-degree angled mid-mounted V4 mono-turbocharged petrol power unit
    • Is "angled" necessary? A similar sentence shows up later and does not have "angled". (As Reidgreg speculated, if the 90-degree angle is the angle of the pistons making the "V", it might be better reordered as mid-mounted 90-degree V4.)
    • If there's anything I can do to reduce the length of this phrase, let me know.
  • Per Reidgreg: Do you think the acronym FIA should be expanded/defined? FIA is its common name in English, and FIFA usually isn't expanded (though that's an other stuff exists argument).
  • Per Reidgreg: Horsepower is used as primary when describing the automotive power but kilowatts is primary when discussing the electric motor. I believe these are the ways they are normally discussed, though it is inconsistent in the article. This may be a case where the needs of the subject/article can override the MOS guideline.
  • The brake discs were made from internally ventilated light-alloy carbon ceramic materials and features power steering.
    • What features power steering? The brake discs?
  • The front system utilised a 185 kW (248 hp) motor–generator (MGU) on the front axle; when braking, kinetic energy was converted into electrical energy, which was stored in water-cooled A123 Systems lithium-ion battery packs that were installed centrally in the passenger side, eliminating turbo lag.
    • Per Reidgreg: The end part "eliminating turbo lag" might not be clear. It might fit better if moved down a sentence or two. I assume this means that the stored electrical energy is used to power the motor–generator during initial acceleration (following a braking manoeuvre) in order to compensate for the turbo lag (turbochargers are powered by the exhaust and so have a responsiveness delay when depressing the accelerator).
  • Finally, Reidgreg noted that the racing history section is more than half of the article. He suggests summarizing it more succinctly, keeping the focus on the performance of the article's subject, and to be careful not to repeat too much material which is in articles on the various races. He also feels that it would beneficial to have some sort of introduction which is a general summary of its racing history, for readers who don't want to read the entire section.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Best of luck on the GA nomination. —Bobbychan193 (talk) 01:35, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

Review of GA assessment of Ester Peony[edit]

Ester Peony, an article that you or your project may be interested in, has been nominated for an individual good article reassessment. If you are interested in the discussion, please participate by adding your comments to the reassessment page. If concerns are not addressed during the review period, the good article status may be removed from the article.

Hey, I know you do a lot of good work and make some well-written GAs in F1 and bios, but the GA status of this article was...dubious... so I reassessed it. The article's DYK nom also had other editors question its GA pass. Because the pass was so recent, I'm notifying you of the reassessment. Kingsif (talk) 16:13, 10 August 2019 (UTC)
