Propellerheads (the band)[edit]

I noticed you removed DreamWorks Records from the list of labels on the Propellerheads page. If Decksanddrumsandrockandroll was released under DWR shouldn't it be included? They may have released their EPs and such on WoS (and the original "Decks") but when they re-released it under DWR it had a different tracklist and added vocals on Oh Yeah?, so it does have some important value to it, even if it didn't have as much importance as WoS did to get the Props off the ground and into the scene. Maybe it could be listed underneath WoS with something that says it was sold and is no longer in operation? I mean, it should get some credit. And yes, I was the one who made that original change. -Boaf

Okay, I see...but the fact that they licensed Decks to DWR seems like enough to be important...I mean, it's how I was able to buy the album in the first place, and probably the same for many people. Boaf 07:30, 15 April 2006 (UTC)
Ah, well that makes a bit more sense. I'm not very technically skilled when it comes to different infobox type things, and I'm not even sure one is very necessary, as long as it's quite clear that Decks was also released on DWR. So, this is cleared up, or am I missing something? -Boaf 08:29, 15 April 2006 (UTC)
Added an infobox. Decksandrumsandrockandroll Maybe you'd be better at filling in the correct credentials. Thanks for clearing this up. -Boaf 08:59, 15 April 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for cleaning up that infobox. Boaf 03:29, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

Previously Deleted Comment[edit]

I think it is pretty immature of you to delete the comments I earlier left in this section. Just because someone disagrees with you! Clearly sir, you are in the wrong on this issue. If you'll recall back from January, I admitted when I was wrong and I substantially revised the article. That's a sign of maturity. Deleting non-vulgar, non-threatening discussion comments is a sign of immaturity. Trying to prevent multiple sources of info on the new S4 from appearing on the page is a sign of immaturity.

However, this is 'your page' so I won't protest any further. If you feel a need to delete my comments here, then so be it.

Please leave the page alone for the time being. I've posted comments now at Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not as well as Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Maths, science, and technology. I'm assuming that people are going to investigate the page. If necessary, we can pursue this to mediation and then arbitration, although I'm hoping that this doesn't become necessary.

AfDs[edit]

I assume it is a simple over site, but when putting a article up for deletion you should place the AfD notice on the page in question as out lined by Template:AfD in 3 steps as for the page Felicia (pseudonym), I have placed the notice on the page for you. With out the notice it could be seen as a non-valid nomination and in some cases a bad faith nomination. --blue520 10:36, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

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 00:33, 26 May 2006 (UTC)


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 18:18, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Mitsubishi Pajero[edit]

You removed an image for the first generation Mistusibishi Pajero off the page and provided no edit summary. I would appreciate an explanation for this, thanks. (it may well be that there was some sort of mistake on the description but in that case, wouldn't it be a better idea correcting instead removing?) Regards, E Asterion u talking to me? 22:22, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

I had to delete the original image. I don't own the car and the owner wasn't happy (well, better not to piss off your ex, long story...) I uploaded an alternative one. Unfortunately, I took this one with my mobile phone camera and the quality is not very good. Regards, E Asterion u talking to me? 07:08, 3 August 2006 (UTC)
I should've realised considering the registration letter. We're better off removing it from the article. I'm keeping an eye out for a Mk I. Thanks for letting me know. E Asterion u talking to me? 23:27, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

Yes, you're right. It was sold from around 1998 as Mitsubishi Galloper Exceed. Then in May 2000, the Super Exceed was released (not really sure but I reckon they stop selling them in 2003). And the LWB variant was also sold (though it was extremely rare, sort of 6 to 1, according to my brother who atill lives in Spain). Cheers, E Asterion u talking to me? 17:27, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

Volvo S80[edit]

What is it about the Volvo S80 article that does not represent a world wide view? To me it looks like hard facts only. --Dahlis 10:11, 6 August 2006 (UTC)

Audi A3 Revert[edit]

Apologies for the blind revert. =) –- kungming·2 | (Talk·Contact) 21:21, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Simca Vedette[edit]

Hi Pc13. I saw you have volunteered to serve as a reviewer on the French Cars Task Force. The reviewing scheme will probably take a considerable amount of time to start functioning, as we still need standards etc. and the whole issue does not advance too much as I guess I am the only one really pushing for it and only Gerd expressed his interest as of now. Still, I hope you are interesting in French cars, as there is some editing support needed, actually.

Namely, I am currently working on Simca articles, and I have even managed to get a few people to help with some articles. The most advanced, currently, is probably the Simca Vedette, which was even actually promoted to Good Article (though I believe this was a bit "in advance"). There is still some work that needs to be done about it, and one missing part is the history of the model in Brasil (and of Simca do Brasil in general, as Vedette-derived models seem to have been all that they manufactured). There are some informative (I presume) sources on that, but they are all in Portuguese. Those two sources seem to be pretty comprehensive:

  1. http://www.simca.com.br (might be down, so perhaps it could be accessed via the Wayback Machine)
  2. http://www2.uol.com.br/bestcars/ph2/175a.htm (this is about Ford Vedette and Simca Vedette in general, but later on there is a link to the article on the Brazilian history, and perhaps you could see whether this adds anything to what is already said about the European history of those models)

Thanks in advance for considering devoting some of your precious time to that :D Regards, Bravada, talk - 21:02, 24 August 2006 (UTC)

1999 24 Hours of Le Mans question[edit]

I'm just curious what your source is on some things regarding your corrections to the 1999 Le Mans page. From what I've found, Estoril Racing Communications is Portugeuse, as seen here [1], yet listed as French here [2]. Both pages however list Michel Monteiro as Portugeuse and not French (I believe I listed him as French by mistake when I originally wrote the page).

If you have any sources that say otherwise, it'd be great to see them. The359 21:54, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

Upon further looking, I've found that Estoril Racing also ran in 1998, and in this picture [3] there is a clear flag of Portugal on the side of the door. Did they change their team's national representation from 1998 to 1999, or something else? The359 21:02, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

FIA GT Race Naming Scheme[edit]

I noticed that you've taken over adding results for previous years of FIA GT, which I appreciate as it would have taken me forever to do it myself. Just a minor thing though, is that I believe a better naming scheme would be similar to the one I used for the 2006 races: 'Year' FIA GT 'Track' 'Distance' I think that when we go back into FIA GT further, it'll make things more even since they didn't always use the name "Supercar" as part of the race title. Having "2005 FIA GT Championship Magny-Cours 500km" just seems more logical a title. Although, granted, I probably shouldn't have used "Tourist Trophy" for the Silverstone round, since it goes against the scheme... The359 21:55, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

Actually, now that I look at it, I'm the one who put "Supercar" in the page title links on the 2005 FIA GT Championship season page. My fault. I still think we should change them to not include the word Supercar though. The359 22:08, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

Wikiproject Automobiles Notification[edit]

Hi Pc13, 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|Pc13]] 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 04:16, 17 December 2006 (UTC)

Ascari A410 = Lola T92/10?[edit]

I noticed while going through the Le Mans Prototype article recently that you had added a note that the Ascari A410s were modified Lola T92/10s. However, after researching the article on the Lola T92/10, I'm not quite sure if this is true. I do agree they look very similar, however as far as I know only three T92/10s were built (with a possible fourth), and two of them were still racing at the time of the A410. Yet I know at least two A410s existed, so I have to wonder, where you got this information that the A410 is based on the T92/10 and what exactly their relation is. The359 20:01, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

Request for Comment[edit]

There's been a Request for Comment initiated at Talk:Whizzer#Request for comment over style and content issues between two versions of Whizzer, one by Tenebrae, the other by Asgardian.

You're a regular and diligent contributor to WikiProject Comics and to the Whizzer article, and so might be a knowledgeable and disinterested party who could add an informed opinion. --Tenebrae 13:50, 7 May 2007 (UTC)


Indeed the Ascari were modified T92/10s, this straight from the designer of the 92/10 who was also responsible for their conversions to Acari LMPs, Wiet Hudikoper. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mulsannescorner (talkcontribs) 00:46, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

1000km Suzuka[edit]

Were there two 1000km races at Suzuka in 1989? The World Sportscar Championship ran there in April, with a Sauber-Mercedes winning, but your list has a Porsche 962 winning. The359 16:37, 10 May 2007 (UTC)

Scratch that, I just realized looking over results that I made a mistake in making the 1989 World Sportscar Championship season page, in that the Suzuka round was 480km, not 1000km. I've fixed it now. The359 16:58, 10 May 2007 (UTC)

Lola[edit]

I originally had the T332CS/T333CS on the sportscar template, but I deleted since as you point out it's a modified open wheel car. I'm actually not sure of what to think of modified open wheel cars that ran in Can Am or for that matter, Interserie. I had a similar debate last night about whether or not to include Interserie in Category:Group C racing since they allowed Group C cars, but I don't think they were the same regulations.

The T88/40 is in the same boat, although the /40 part of the designation would seem to make it appear as a predecessor LMP/SR.

I'd say that, if anything, just leave them off of any chart since they are such unique vehicles (especially the B01/70 MG). Articles can eventually exist on them, but I think with sheer number of Lola articles that are theoretically possible, it might be ok to have four or five cars that don't have a template at the bottom.

My gut feeling is that honestly neither you or I nor anyone else will ever get around to making pages for these rare cars from minor series at the time. This is partly why I left Sport 2000 off of the sports car template. The359 22:59, 10 May 2007 (UTC)

Changes to chassis links[edit]

Hi Pc13. I notice you're changing lots of chassis links in F1 driver pages to remove the link to the constructor, e.g. changing "[[HWM]] [[HMW 52|52]]" to just "[[HWM 52]]". We deliberately structured the chassis links that way so that if there wasn't an article for the specific chassis, you could still click on the constructor link. See discussion here -- DH85868993 08:45, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

Also, in the entrant column, where an entrant name has been piped to soemthing very similar, e.g. "[[Rob Walker Racing Team|Rob Walker Racing]]", again that is usually deliberate; the name on the right-hand side of the pipe is how the entrant appeared on the official entry list.

P32T[edit]

First, I remember now that 3.6L i snot the turbocharging limit on LMP1s, I had forgotten the 4.0L Bentleys. Second, I guess I must have missed this somewhere, but where did you see that Chamberlain-Synergy changed to a 4.0L engine? I know the P32T was expandable, but I had yet to hear of anyone doing anything but the 3.6L layout. The359 18:50, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

CZR[edit]

I've restored the article to User:Pc13/CZR, so you can work on it. Please do add sources, but also make it more encyclopedic in tone--see neutral point of view, one of our core policies. You can move it back to article space once it's in good shape. Thanks. Chick Bowen 15:18, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

Cosworth Duratec Engine[edit]

I saw that you changed the Atlantic engine section to refer to the Mazda engine. The reason why I used the Ford reference is that Cosworth sources their Duratec crate engines directly from Ford. I am however fine with either reference and will not change it back. magnusfeuer

Deadly Hands of Kung Fu[edit]

PC13, I see you created the Curtis Magazines. I'm having a dispute with another editor on utilizing the Marvel name in the infobox in the Deadly Hands of Kung Fu article . The magazine was clearly published under the Curtis logo rather then Marvel. My question to you is: Do you have any references about the history of Marvel and its imprint Curtis that you stated in your article? I am using some of the information you utilized in your article but I would like a reference so that I can defend it if necessary. Specifically about Marvel's strategy of utilizing an imprint name for its more mature B+W magazines. I know this seems very logical but there are other out there that need hand holding through every step. Thanks FrankWilliams 12:49, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Don't blame "Americans"[edit]

I took mild exception to your reference to what "Americans have trouble grasping". This kind of comment does not raise the level of discourse, and risks offending other editors. I happen to be an American (not that this should matter to anyone on Wikipedia), but this has little do with what I can or cannot grasp. Yes, we need to be sure we're writing for a worldwide audience, but we surely don't need to insult people from a particular country in order to accomplish this.

Ok, é assim: foi um IP que adicionou essa informação na pt:wp. Após alguma investigação, vim a saber que o nome dele é na verdade Ângelo César (tenho fontes para isso no artigo em português, que, aproveito para dizer, está cada vez mais completo :D depois passa por la e diz o que achas). Coloquei o restante do conteúdo desse parágrafo em comentário, até arranjar fontes, já que não parece ser informação fiável. Vou alterar aqui na en:wp o nome real dele.

RAC Tourist Trophy[edit]

I recently started a stub for the Tourist Trophy, mostly with a list of the trophy winners. Howver, my sources only go up to 1994, so I've been trying to find the races that have run under the Trophy banner since. So far I have an ISRS race in 1998 and what I thought was a race in 1999, plus the three FIA GT races from 2005-now. However, while searching, I came across your entry in the Jamie Campbell-Walter article that he won the Tourist Trophy during the 1999 British GT Championship. Unfortunately none of my sources list the Tourist Trophy for that year, so do you happen to know which event it was which was designated as the Tourist Trophy? The359 (talk) 00:42, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

You're right, I went to the Motor Racing Circuits Database (which is actually still around, someone has a duplicate here instead of having to look up Archives). Anyway, it also adds some BTCC events in 1996 and 1997, but at the same time it lacks the 2001 event that Warnock and Jordan apparently won. Again, no help from WSRP.
However, one piece of "proof" that ISRS did not have the Tourist Trophy at Donington is from RacingSportscars.com, in that they have the the official program's cover scanned. Confirms the event was "The Very Fast Show", and no mention of a Tourist Trophy or anything of that sort. The 1998 cover on the other hand quite clearly calls the event the Tourist Trophy. So I'm thinking it was indeed the British GT series that ran the Trophy race, just have to find which one. I'll search some more. The359 (talk) 16:42, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

1998 FIA GT[edit]

Yeah, thanks, I had noticed them in your sandbox before and figured you'd start adding them while I worked my way back through the years. One thing I noticed however was the engine displacement in the CLK LM. I had initially thought the M119 was increased in size to 6 litres, but a quick Google search seems to give conflicting reports on whether it was 5 litre or 6 litre. The359 (talk) 01:11, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

Further searching, and the program for the 1998 24 Hours of Le Mans lists the CLK LMs as 6000cc Atmospheric. —Preceding unsigned comment added by The359 (talkcontribs) 01:13, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

V de V[edit]

quattro (all wheel drive system)[edit]

I've had to undo your last edit on the Audi quattro all wheel drive system.

Unforunately, you made some major edits to various parts of the text, notably the regarding the specific operation of the Torsen based systems which where factually incorrect. You also changed the format layout, making your version much harder to read, and compare against newer generations. One very particular issue, is that you repeatedly state that the Torsen "locks" - the Torsen never locks - instead, it permantly apportions drive between front and rear axles (based on the torque sensing principle), and therefore, the Torsen is a permanently "open" differential. (If it were to "lock", then it would be exactly 50:50 drive front/rear at 100% of the time). Rgds, -- Teutonic Tamer 13:50, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

The pdf link you gave me is interesting - yes, it does show a date of October 2000, but as with all Audi "Technical Data" sheets, that date is simply the date of "release" of the document only, and not actual availability of the car in question. The B6 A4 range wasn't actually available for delivery until very early 2001. I specifically remember being invited to a "press" launch at Newmarket, England - whereby press, and pre-registered potential purchasers were invited to drive a very limited selection of "pre-production" A4s. This was around late October/early November 2000, and we were strictly advised that they were pre-production, and that final specifications had yet to be confirmed, and deliveries of "production" models (to both press and paying customers) would not occur until mid-late January 2001. They did confirm that the German market would be getting their production A4s before the UK, but it was only a few weeks difference.

I agree that the dates in the infoboxes, and in the text of the articles should relate to physical production years, and not the US orientated "model years" - and specifcally referring to the A4, whilst there may have been a few pre-production cars available late 2000, I think that the mainstream production, for the "finalised specifications" only really began in Dec 2000, with Audi AG aiming for customer delivery for Jan 2001. That is the reason why I reckon the start-year for the B6 should be 2001.

A similar scenario happened with the B6 S4, with Audi releasing Technical Data late 2002, but the car was not physically available until about April/May 2003.

Hi again. I'm sorry to inform you, but AudiWorld, like all internet "forums" are NOT considered a WP:RS - so I would not use that as a reference! AudiWorld even tried to report that the B6 S4 had an "FSI" engine, when it categorically did NOT (nor did the B7 S4). More help on Reliable Sources: Wikipedia:Reliable source examples#Are web forums and blog talkbacks reliable sources?.
Have you tried searching on the official Audi "press" website? That will only be the definative answer, rather than any unreliable forums ;-), rgds, -- Teutonic_Tamer (talk to Teutonic_Tamer) 18:28, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

-- Teutonic_Tamer (talk to Teutonic_Tamer) has smiled at you! Smiles promote WikiLove and hopefully this one has made your day better. Spread the WikiLove by smiling at someone else, whether it be someone you have had disagreements with in the past or a good friend and remember :"All men are created equal, but ambition, or lack of it, soon separates them." Cheers, and happy editing!
Smile at others by adding {{subst:Smile}} to their talk page with a friendly message.

Whoops, my apologies! I've just checked the history on my talk page and (I think) when I last replied, that particular message was unsigned, and a bot has subsequently added the IP signature - hence why I wrongly assumed you wrote it. Sorry . . .
Regarding the Audi press site(s), I don't know if you are aware, but there are country-specific press sites for each country (ie, one for Audi.co.uk, one for Audi.de, another for, Audi.fr, etc), and there is also the 'corporate', global press site. I know that the UK press site contains full archives, but not sure about the others. Newspress doesn't seem to carry any archives, so unless you pull the pdf within the first week or so (not worked out the true cut-off), they vanish into the 'ether'!
Regarding the German magazines you list, are they WP:RS? I know that in the UK, one of the supposed "trusted" car mags is Evo, yet I have repeatedly found consistent factual errors (maybe down to "journalist license"?!), which, when you trace back to original sources, have been changed to make for more interesting reading (I guess to improve their sales).
I suppose the "nitty-gritty" is that - what is the cut-off, to inlcude something in one year or the other. To take the B7 as an example, if it did go into production in December 2004, then by stating a 'blanket year' of 2004 for the B7 would be misleading. It may have been in production for one month of 2004, but what about the other 11 months of 2004? To then state 2004 in the article would be very misleading - which is why I would prefer the 2005 date.
Finally, there is confusion about when cars are "introduced" - looking at the current text for the B7 -

Audi introduced a heavily revised A4 in late 2004 . . .

- "introduced" is not the same as "in full production and avalable to purchase, and take delivery". Car maufacturers often introduce forthcoming new models at motor shows, often many months before they make it to the production line - again, this is misleading. I suppose the correct way to write the text of that B7 section would be something like: Audi introduced a preview of a heavily revised A4 at such-and-such MotorShow in late 2004, with anticipated production and customer deliveries for the start of 2005.
I really think that the dates should reflect the majority of the applicable year, and if there is any confusion, then the text of the article should clarify the dates.

100 Greatest Villains (Wizard magazine)[edit]

Hi,

I have no problem with removing this section (to be honest, the entire article—not just that section—seems pretty trivial and unencyclopedic to me (-: ), but there are other articles that link to this section. What is WP policy regarding this?

Audi S and RS models[edit]

I've undone your deletion again. Perhaps you would like to read WP:EL in full, paying particular notice to WP:EL#Links to be considered point 4. All links contain "information about the subject of the article from knowledgeable sources". They are all (with the exception of TyreSmoke.net) "owners club" types. They have all proven to me of being thouroughly knowledgeable, factual and unbiased in their content, and a particular mention to RS246.com, which has official Audi technical and other documents, hosted on their site. This links are completely different to "AudiWorld.com", which generally contains a considerable amount of mis-information.

re: Juggernaut (comics)[edit]

This note is being left as this editor has participated in the week long edit war on Juggernaut (comics).

To date none of the participants has chosen to discuss their edits, why they feel they are correct and justified, and why they feel the edits of others are wrong or misguided. As a result there has been no consensus to actually change the article.

As such the article has been rolled back to what may be the "wrong version" and protected. This has been done to urge the participants in the edit war to actually engage on the article's talk page. A section Talk:Juggernaut (comics)#Restructuring the article has been added to help in this.

Mitsubishi Challenger lives!![edit]

Remember that huge debate we had in 2006 about whether or not the Outlander was the successor to the Challenger? Well, it seems I was right all along (and I knew it). Mitsubishi have finally released a new Challenger, which will be available in most markets except Europe or North America. It will also go by a few different names, but will retain the Challenger name here in Australia. It's based on the Triton pickup truck, just like the previous model was. Feel free to admit you were wrong at any time. Davez621 (talk) 14:44, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

House-music tagging[edit]

When a style of music is used as an adjective, it requires hyphens: “Legendary house-music producer Marhsall Jefferson returned after a 10-year absence from the music industry.” When it is used as a noun, it doesn’t take a hyphen: “Many people like to dance to house music. House music is a feeling.” I hope this clears up why I’ve been doing what I’m doing. I suggest you look at The Chicago Manual of Style for further clarification. Peace. —MuzikJunky (talk) 06:49, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

I don't know what the Chicago Manual of Style is, but I know what the English language is. Hyphens are for compost words. House-music does not exist as a compost noun. Do you also write "rock-music", "jazz-music", "trance-music" and "classical-music" with hyphens? --Pc13 (talk) 10:18, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
The Chicago Manual of Style is one of the premier authorities on the written version of the English language. When a noun phrase made of multiple words is used as an adjective, it becomes a compund noun (not compost) and requires a hyphen. When the noun phrase is used as a noun, it does not require hyphens (see above). Chicago can be purchased anywhere, and some of its features are available at its Web site.] Peace. —MuzikJunky (talk) 22:15, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Buraka Som Sistema[edit]

A tag has been placed on Buraka Som Sistema requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a band, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia.

Hey, I've got news for you, you are not alone in the Internet and Wikipedia is not a private estate, no matter how many articles you exhibit for the sake of pride.

The Bomb By Kenny Gonzalez[edit]

Please stop changing the release date from 1995 to 1994 the song was relaesed 1995 and was a hit in 1995 not 1994 i not only remember but their are sources [4] [5]--Wikiscribe (talk) 15:15, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

I'm well aware of club music we are not talking about if it was spun in some club at an earlier date that would be like siteing any songs demo as the release date for a song that is not yet officaly released and my source"s" are more re liable i.e that source you are using is a commerical site i pointed out non commercial sites one is an article write up and the other is a music media site and also yahoo music which is a commerical site has it down as january 1995--Wikiscribe (talk) 15:46, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Not commerical? yes it is read the article you portaled it does say it's also commerical and allmusic is not,and clearly shows all releases even the obscure vinyl release as 1995 and if you want to argue that other site as a blog fine though everything on that site is wriiten as articles unless you clcik the blog portal to blog but okay lets say it a blog you are citeing a commerical or at least a partial commerical site and i'm not but lets say that site is right could you be argueing the possibility it was released on vinyl in novemeber or december 1994(being there is not a full date of release from that site) or that we start using "underground"localized releases as offical release dates because next people will want to cite underground mix tapes that they got as release dates for songs before it was released to the general public on cassette single or something--Wikiscribe (talk) 04:10, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

TWR/WR merger[edit]

Tom Walkinshaw Racing and Walkinshaw Racing are two completely different race teams with no connection other than the owner.

Team name and entrant name[edit]

Thank you for your wisdom. I think with Scuderia Playteam I decided to remove the Sarafree because a page for Scuderia Playteam had just been created and did not include Sarafree in its title, however it was mentioned later in the article. I understand now that the Sarafree was necessary to mention as part of the entry name. With regards to the 2008 GP2 Series season, that cannot explain why the Piquet Sports flag(s) is different in three places on the article: under the 'Teams and Drivers' it's Italy, under '2008 Schedule' it's Brazil and under 'Team Standings' it's Italy and Brazil. Which is correct for that season? Officially Mr X (talk) 08:41, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

Groove Armada genres[edit]

I can assure you that since 2009 is Groove Armada a huge load of synthpop. Listen to Black Light if you don't believe. If you already have heard Black Light, I believe you will agree now and you will not delete synthpop as Groove Armada's genre next time. Thank you in advance.

Well, first half is definitely pop-rock oriented. However synthpop tracks are at least I Won't Kneel, Shameless and History. And this part of sound is for GA important these days (according to their live act I attended last autumn and according to the fact I Won't Kneel was picked as a pilot). No offense. I am just music journalist and hard core fan of GA with 4k plays @ Last.fm interested in improving Armada's facts on Wiki. If you think synthpop is not appropriate, remove it.

hp vs PS[edit]

Hello Pc13, I noticed that you changed the text in the Suzuki Fronte article to read "PS" instead of hp. Since many readers are unfamiliar with PS I figured to refer to metric horsepowers as "hp" in prose would make sense, and avoids having others add the bhp. If you think it must read "PS" that's fine, I just think that hp works better in the main text. Best,  ⊂ Mr.choppers ⊃  (talk) 15:46, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Please stop making this change. PS and hp are not the same unit - there's a couple of % difference in their values. So whatever the merits of each unit as a choice, your simple renaming here is introducing a numerical error. Andy Dingley (talk) 13:34, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Heikki L[edit]

You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles. See the Article Wizard.
Thank you.

A tag has been placed on Heikki L, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article seems to be unambiguous advertising that only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the general criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item G11, as well as the guidelines on spam.

If you can indicate why the subject of this article is not blatant advertising, you may contest the tagging. To do this, please add {{hangon}} on the top of Heikki L and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would help make it encyclopedic, as well as adding any citations from independent reliable sources to ensure that the article will be verifiable.

Re:Anon IRC/WRC guy[edit]

Yeah, I've been getting sick and tired with his "contributions" as well. For instance, I added a reference showing that Valeriy Gorban had used Sergey Larens as co-driver in Portugal here but low and behold, he couldn't admit he was wrong so he decided to remove it here. I've already reasoned with him twice to stop adding un-notable entries, but yeah, I think we should give him another response as to why he should stick with using just the event's official entry lists and not making up his own "teams". If he continues, admin action seems to be the only reputable option...Rest assured, you're not the only one who is getting tired of the continual reverts! ;) Cs-wolves(talk) 23:52, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

*sigh* He just isn't giving up, is he? Cs-wolves(talk) 22:38, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, he ignores every revert we do and continues to put his own OR into the articles, and bloating the articles with unknown or un-notable entries. He also seems to group all the Peugeot Total entries, including the Magalhães one that you have mentioned, into the one Peugeot Total span. If I remember correctly, the IRC archives are getting a bit of a touch-up after the introduction of their new live timing system, but I don't know that for a 100% certainty. Is it possible that you could give me a list of who the one-offs are, and I'll see what I can find? Kind regards, Cs-wolves(talk) 15:34, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, Sarrazin and McRae hit the podium on their one-offs in Monte Carlo and Scotland respectively, so we can consider them as notable to be included. Now, if we look at Auriol, who competed in Monte Carlo, he lost a wheel on the first stage and retired; while Snijers retired from 13th place on stage 6 in Ypres. Make of that what you will... Zhigunov retired from 30th in Russia, and ran no higher than 27th, so he should go, while Verlaque retired from 5th on stage 3 on the Safari. So a few definitely to go...

Rashomon[edit]

Hi, Pc13. You were right to remove ""Rashomon-style", as it's an OR claim. As for "what it means", though: That 1950 Akira Kurosawa film is the classic, oft-cited example of what film scholars call "the unreliable narrator", with the same event being told from different, and differing, points of view. It's considered one of cinema's greatest and most influential films. I feel very happy to be able to introduce it to you and to urge you to see this classic movie, preferably on a big screen as its beautifully composed visuals deserve. And then you'll be ready to see Seven Samurai ! Trust me: These are two cinematic experiences you won't want to miss. With regards, Tenebrae (talk) 13:33, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 31[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited 1975 Trans-Am season, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Derek Bell and John Greenwood (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Peugeot RCZ[edit]

Hey Pc13, i can actually cite that manufacturer you removed with this. You don't have a problem with me re-adding it do you? Thanks Jenova20 (email) 12:43, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

manufacturers[edit]

While I've understand why you've undid some of my edits, some edits like The BMW 3 Series is also manufactured by BMW Brilliance and Bavarian Auto Group or the edit that Magna Steyr use to make the Mercedes-Benz M-Class was rather unnecessary. Please don't undo edits that involve other manufacturers that makes a entire vehicle. Seqqis (talk) 04:58, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

British Drivers[edit]

Hi. Just a quick note, may changing back the "Home Nation" flag to the "Union Jack", may save me time trying to find out whether Joe Bloggs is Welsh or Scottish. Does this mean, you will be amending the 50/60 of these Championship/individual races I have set-up over the last six months? LordAnon of Essex (talk) 23:38, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

January 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to 1978 24 Hours of Le Mans may have broken the syntax by modifying 2 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:

British Empire Trophy[edit]

Hi Pc13, first, thanks for the check-up on the page. I do have a quick question: was there a particular reason to remove cell width parameters from the table outside of having driver names underneath each other instead of side by side for races with shared drives? Regards, MotorOilStains (talk) 19:05, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

Hey, thanks for the reply... all points you've made are indeed valid and are designed to speed up data entry. My question has had yet another reason, not rooted in self indulgent page visuals. Upon prompting of a few peers in my age-group, I've posted a general note on my user page (User feedback) which may explain my motive for spending the extra time defining such table parameters (tables are not the only feedback I've received since starting to post). Please keep in mind that I'm still new and have a lot to learn about Wiki conventions but I would much appreciate if you had a spare minute to go over the context of the note and let me know your thoughts... Regards, MotorOilStains (talk) 23:42, 4 May 2014 (UTC) (btw, my name is Al)
