Audi R10

Hi. Hmmm, it seems to be six of one, half a dozen of the other, regarding the naming. On the one hand, you highlighted the Peugeot 908, with its 'trimmed' name, but going off your user page, a couple of other examples supporting using the full name include the BMW V12 LM and the Nissan GTP ZX-Turbo - both of which include in their name an element of their engine design. Regarding the 'simplified' name, then the Panoz LMP-1 Roadster-S is an example of not having a short name.

Whilst I do agree that article names should not be overly long, I also feel it important that where possible, the 'correct' name, as defined by the manufacturer should be used - and being as Audi clearly include 'TDI' in its name, adding those three extra characters to the article title certainly don't make the article name long or excessive, but they do make it more accurate, which should be seen as a good thing. I'll make an effort to fix the redirects, to fix consistency in the relevent R10 articles.

PS, you made me chuckle with your Procrastination userbar - if only we could all be so honest! Best regards -- Teutonic_Tamer (talk to Teutonic_Tamer) 06:54, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

OK, I think I've fixed all the redirects - any that I've missed and the Bots will sort anyway. Rgds -- Teutonic_Tamer (talk to Teutonic_Tamer) 12:52, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Juan Carlos Bolaños

Looking at more sources, it does appear that Bolaños was not named to drive the car in 1972. However it does appear that he did drive in 1975 and 1976 (and even finished 9th in 1975). Thank you for pointing this out or I wouldn't have dug deeper into his Le Mans career (I wrote the article from a WP:AOWR perspective). -Drdisque (talk) 03:03, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

Well I added some more info, as well as I renamed the EE1 to ee1. Although the team was founded almost ten years ago, I couldn't find a full text with the history, but only some small references. I'll see what I can do.. --KaragouniS :  Chat  05:41, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Driver adjustable bodywork in F1

I note you've deleted my addition to the 2009 F1 season as "uncited". Could I suggest that, instead of simply deleting it, you do one of 2 other alternatives? 1) download the regs from the FIA site and read them. You'll find what I've written is accurate. 2) If you can't be bothered to do that, then just add a request for citation. Deleting this in this way is simply lazy. --Phil Holmes (talk) 21:18, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

In reply to your comment in my talk pages, I was working from the guidelines on citation WP:CITE. It says sources should be cited in the following circumstances:
2.1 When adding material that is challenged or likely to be challenged
2.2 When quoting someone
2.3 When adding material to the biography of a living person
2.4 When checking content added by others
2.5 When uploading an image
The only one of these that could possibly apply is 2.1. However, I judged the material unlikely to be challenged, since it is clearly written in the 2009 regulations. If it were challenged, then a citation could become appropriate. However, Wiki is not a list of sources, it is a source of information and every piece of information does not require a citation.
WP:CRYSTAL does not apply since the note I added are none of "Individual scheduled or expected future events", "Individual items from a predetermined list" or "Articles that present extrapolation, speculation, and "future history"".
I trust this clarifies the issue. --Phil Holmes (talk) 07:40, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Procar passed GA

Thought I should let you know I finally got around to doing the "paperwork" :P Cheers! —— nixeagle 19:24, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

procar

I've just dropped off a print source for Procar here: User:The359/ProcarSource.

I also noted a couple sources on the WP:Motor talk page relating to Procar and the GA nom.

Best of luck

-- Guroadrunner (talk) 20:39, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Actually, apparently it passed GA. Nice. Nonetheless, you can use the sourcing I am giving you for a run for FA status or just to improve the article further. Guroadrunner (talk) 20:40, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Joseph Green post at Arudou talk page

Hey The359, there is a post at the bottom of the Arudou talk page made by a user named "Joseph Green" - I'm thinking about how to answer his statements, but if you want you can address the statements there. WhisperToMe (talk) 01:11, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

  • Hmm, he added a reply; Green also said: "Regarding some of the above comments: I don't know who is following Wikipedia's rules more closely, but it seems clear to me that Mr. Arudou conducts himself with much more civility, sense, and good will than his attackers. I will leave it at that." WhisperToMe (talk) 22:55, 3 October 2008 (UTC)
