Forza Minardi! book

Hi Readro,

I saw on the Library page of WP:MOTOR that you have this book I am interested in, Forza Minardi!

How is it? Would you recommend it?

[1] I knew it started somewhere around the 50's/60's but didn't know the exact year! Hopefully I'll be able to set up the transformation in the Wiki-space within the next few days. ;-) D.M.N. (talk) 16:21, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, that sounds better. Thanks. =) D.M.N. (talk) 14:32, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
Just thinking... for books like Forza Minardi, would they go under Biography, as its like a biography of the Minardi team. D.M.N. (talk) 14:39, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
Good point. I'll probably make a General F1 section then for books of that type then. D.M.N. (talk) 14:50, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

I've adjusted the table for the 1963, '64 and '65 Autosport years so that match the changes you made to '61 and '62. Could you fill out the Date and Details section when you have a spare minute? Thanks. D.M.N. (talk) 18:14, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. D.M.N. (talk) 18:17, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

If it's a page which normally gets moderate/high traffic, then I normally would (say for instance if I wanted to reference a current F1 article, I'd probably edit it in my sandbox, then paste it into the mainspace), but with the 1995 ones, I don't really see much point of it as I'm unlikely to be edit conflicted, plus others can actively add info to it when its in the mainspace. D.M.N. (talk) 19:03, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, that would be fitting. I think at the moment the aim with an article like that when he was in him prime 80 years ago, a GA would be quite possible. Not sure whether FA would be possible though... depends what sources are out there on him. D.M.N. (talk) 16:04, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:GP2 logo.png)

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:GP2 logo.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:27, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

I know

I know. I just realised. Chubbennaitor 21:37, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Excuse me

Then why did he have a go at me no-one else has complained about? I come here with good heart and I start to make an effort; you'll never guess what I got back in my face. Chubbennaitor 07:08, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Caesars Palace revert

Kudos for noticing it. I just saw the Caesars Palace part and reverted. Completely my fault. So once again, cheers. :) Cs-wolves(talk) 22:32, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Archiving online refs

Howdy. You may want to consider archiving urls when using the {{Cite web}} template. That template uses the "archiveurl" and "archivedate" parameters. A website I use to archive urls is WebCite.--Rockfang (talk) 03:08, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Rudolf Caracciola

Hi. I've been looking at doing an expansion on Rudi's page for a bit, to see if we could get it on the main page for the 50th anniversary of his death (the 28th of September this year). I've been doing a fair amount of research - I've read his autobiography (very interesting), and have been looking through some of my other books, and have collected what appear to be useful and reliable (most of them) websites here. Looking through the motorsports library, it looks like you have some books which might be useful. Once I saw that you started Rudi's page (and might have some interest in the subject) I wondered whether you would like to have a collaboration on the article, or if not, tell me if you have anything interesting on him. :) Thanks, Apterygial 11:49, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Great! I didn't check the whole history of the page, which explains why I didn't catch all those other editors. The research I've been doing hasn't been able to turn up much of his career from 1926 to 1930, so that DVD could certainly be very useful (as well as the rest of his career). I'm off to my state library on Friday to look through their books, and I'll probably start on the article this weekend. Apterygial 10:13, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
I've started working on the article in my sandbox, if you wanted to add some stuff. Apterygial 06:42, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
Sure. If you get a mo, could you add a bit about RC's donation of trophies to the Indy 500 museum to the Legacy section? Thanks. Apterygial 03:06, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
