Re:Automated delivery

Erm...not really thought about it. I suppose it would be much easier on us, as it would save us time...so I say why not. First Monday of the month except for the last issue which would be the last day of the year; just like how we have at present...if the bot can do that of course! Cs-wolves(talk) 20:07, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

What about those that haven't edited in a while (over a year at least)...should we also remove them from the recipients list...that may be what is slowing us down manually. Cs-wolves(talk) 20:29, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
An issue's warning seems perfectly appropriate. Super! Cs-wolves(talk) 20:38, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

─────────────────────────Starting to get the feeling that the bot was a bit of a wasted idea. Three issues; one was timely, one was delayed and one still hasn't come yet. Hmm... Cs-wolves(talk) 02:07, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

I suppose we could deliver it manually, but if it comes double, we can always trawl through and delete one of them. But yeah, NASCAR one went unbothered so that is quite strange! Cs-wolves(talk) 13:57, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Request for assistance

Hi there - Happy New Year!

I've got a discussion going with Luph25 about the fuel used by Sauber in the Sauber C14. As far as I can see it was Elf, but Luph believes it to have been Petronas. If you still have the 1995 Autocourse, could you check it for me? 1996 says Elf, but I don't have the 1995 one. Many thanks. 4u1e (talk) 13:20, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

Great, thank you. I believe fuel was supplied for the Petronas (nee Ferrari) engines by Shell in 97 and 98 before Petronas took over fuel for 99 (going by a couple of Autocourses and a yearbook) Could you give me a page number for the 1995 ref? I've used chicanef1 as a ref for now, but would rather something more reliable. Cheers. 4u1e (talk) 15:14, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
I see you're ahead of me - thanks again! 4u1e (talk) 15:18, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

ok sure...I was excited to see Narain back on grid :)

Commons

Hey man, quick question...which licensing is available to put onto Commons? I have been meaning to start helping out if Formula One photos are available, for the newsletter. That said, I may delve into other formulae. Cs-wolves(talk) 00:10, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Ah, I only ever thought it was the first tick. I have a Flickr account anyway, having stuck many of my gig photos and the BTCC Edinburgh photos on there. All three ticks, wow! So, for instance...if this picture wasn't on Commons, it could be uploaded right? Cs-wolves(talk) 00:52, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
No equals or dollar signs, better take a note of that! Ha! Cs-wolves(talk) 01:12, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Hungary 08

I have to admire your commitment. You've been unlucky with the FACs, and I'd say the article is as tight as anything which passes through there. The one thing which could improve the chances next time (although luck is undeniably a part) is to review (in depth) several other nominations while yours is there. That gets your name out and would probably make people more likely to reciprocate. Bon chance! Apterygial 06:12, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

Struggling again...

The usual lack of January photos has arisen once again...was hoping for some of the testing ones but that'll come at Jerez I do believe. Sigh... Cs-wolves(talk) 22:34, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Oh yeah, I had forgotten about that...suppose that would be the most suitable if no Valencia pics turn up. Cs-wolves(talk) 23:23, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Suppose a speedy recovery for Kubica may be the suitable option for the picture, similar to the Massa one. Cs-wolves(talk) 16:29, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Just goes to show how badly a rallying jaunt pre-season can go. Cruel luck for him. You can choose the article then for the newsletter. ;) Cs-wolves(talk) 23:03, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
Having a look at the NASCAR newsletter which is also delivered by the bot...their last was submitted 23 January, posted early 25 January. May be a couple of days late, but oh well! Here's hoping it comes today. Cs-wolves(talk) 17:18, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
I LIKE IT! Wasn't expecting that quick, mind you! Cs-wolves(talk) 17:26, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
Although, can we not put it in with the {{Wikipedia:WikiProject Formula One/Newsletter/201102}} (as it would be next month), rather than the bloated length from the exact details on the page? Might put unduly weight on the recipients' talkpage. Cs-wolves(talk) 17:31, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
Might reduce the number of connection errors that the bot has picked up; but seems like it was all delivered fine... Cs-wolves(talk) 17:45, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
Just three months, or is there other options? Three may be a little short, but if that's the only option then it should be considered. Cs-wolves(talk) 18:09, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, I don't see why not then. Might reduce the recipients a bit, but seems fair! If the users do come back, then they can re-sign up for the newsletter. Cs-wolves(talk) 18:13, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
Oh yes, of course. How silly of me to forget! Cs-wolves(talk) 19:08, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Thought I would try them out on the Newsletter page, following recent events. Probably a one-off, mind you. Cs-wolves(talk) 16:32, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

Quick thought...

Instead of putting Hungary '08 up for a third month, I'm thinking of putting up the Australian race just gone by there...it's handy enough because it's the only race of the month and we want some variety! Cs-wolves(talk) 22:42, 3 April 2011 (UTC)

Ah, just a tad early! If we are ever stuck and it's a one-race month, maybe the contingency plan can come into effect! Cs-wolves(talk) 23:01, 3 April 2011 (UTC)
