Flagicons in infoboxes[edit]

Following your edit to the page Bruce Anstey in which you removed the flag icon, and kindly pointed out that quote: only F1 car drivers are exempt from this blanket, it looks like you about to become very busy indeed, removing the flag icons from the pages of such as: Cal Crutchlow, Jorge Lorenzo, Valentino Rossi, Casey Stoner, Takuma Aoki, Alex de Angelis, Shuhei Aoyama, Gregorio Lavilla, Alex Barros, Franco Battaini, Max Biaggi, Marco Lucchinelli, Ayrton Badovini, Matthieu Lussiana, Sylvain Barrier, Leandro Mercado, Simon Buckmaster, Luca Cadalora, Bernat Martínez, Carlos Checa, Kirk McCarthy, Simon Crafar, Avalon Biddle, Barry Briggs, Joan Garriga, Wayne Gardner, Nobuatsu Aoki and Marco Greco to name a few, in order to point out the reference made and to avoid any inconsistencies.

Thank you for your understanding of the general guidelines to Wikipedia Manual of Style Icons, and for your list of example-usage @Harvey Milligan:. I am only an occasional editor, but I am trying to be a good Wikipedian. I saw this deviance of using infoboxflags years ago, and I did check to see if there have been any recent changes. I understand there was a discussion and consensus opinion of allowing inclusion into F1 car driver's bio-type articles long ago. I will try to find it, but this will not be soon.

I am grateful for the time taken to compile the list - articles such as those of the leading contenders and historical figures are likely to be heavily fan-edited (fancrufted), and as such I would anticipate possible edit-warring there. I immediately noticed Simon Buckmaster, whom I last saw at Darley Moor back in the 1990s, but regularly now see wearing a prosthetic (pylon leg) on TV. I have removed the flagicon with some general improvements to his bio, if you want to watch it. It's been recently created by an editor from the near-continent, which explains the cluttered prose, and Dutch Wikipedia might have different guidelines to En-Wiki.

January 2018[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm This is Paul. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Ben Bradley (politician), but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you.

This editor is disputing the reliability of two sources, not as is implied that I didn't provide any source - one was extant from a previous editor.
