Hi there! I'm Dopp, a member of Wikia's Community Support Team. Today we're enabling a Classifieds system on your wiki as a test feature (you'll see it in the sidebar of article pages). This is an early stage test -- we just want to see how it works -- so please bear with us for a few months while we evaluate its potential. If you love the feature (or hate it, or wish it was better), let me know! You can leave feedback on my talk page. Thanks for maintaining such a great wiki! --[[User:Dopp|Dopp]] http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb32675/wikia/images/e/e9/WikiaStaff.png <small>([[w:c:community:Forum:Community_Central_Forum|help forum]] | [[w:c:community:Blog:Wikia_Staff_Blog |blog]])</small> 22:20, June 7, 2011 (UTC)

Rules and guidelines

Kenny, I have created an Editing Rules and Guidelines page. The purpose of this page is help newcomers understand the precedent flow of the site rather then be devine law. It is not my attempt to be the sole creator of this page so if you could please look it over, and add, change as you feel necessary or just give some feedback. Thanks Sinnin  talk  Contributions 00:12, April 5, 2011 (UTC)

This is something we should have had long ago. Better late than never. We also need to make sure it's very visible on the homepage so that newbies can actually find it easily. HaarFager 20:31, April 5, 2011 (UTC)

Camerapedia

I found this wikia and thought it may be of some interest to you Camerapedia. Enjoy!! Sinnin  talk  Contributions 12:56, March 4, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, David. I used to be a member of that site when it was a non-profit, open source for information. The original creator of the site sold out to Wikia and now they're making money off of everybody's images and work who thought they were uploading them for a good, free cause. It was just supposed to be a free web-source for information about cameras, now it's a commercial entity owned by Wikia. Lots of members that used to contribute to them have bailed, as have I, and removed our images. It probably won't last very long. However, now I'm a member of this website:

Hello,

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to make this post. 1st time i'm attempting it so....

I have been making a few modest posts and recently noticed some of the pages are going outside their boundries with the table and the sideboxes are overlayed on the table. Ex: turbo mustang is one of the numerous pages I am using as a reference. I like the wikia because I can find reliable information from other collectors which I use for product descriptions in my online store. Keep up the good work guys. 0ldgeezer 01:32, November 12, 2010 (UTC).

The wikia brand has recently adopted a new skin for all the wikia sites. Currently this new skin is not working with our table layout. I have been trying to get help from the wikia staff. But thier rebutle is that the average wikia users have old outdated computers and therefore we are unworthy of a wider layout. Also speaking out against their "new and improved" product is pure blasphomy. There is one wikia site, WoWWiki, where it has been determined that the users have better then average computers, therefore they get a wider page layout... go figure. As for our wikia if you can make changes to help narrow the table, please do so. Otherwise we will just have to wait this one out. Sinnin  talk  Contributions 03:19, November 12, 2010 (UTC)

"Krocomodo" and "Kalus. Vandalism, bad joke or a mistake?

Hi Kenny. I just marked with "delete" pages "Krocomodo" and "Kalus". For show information that has nothing to do with any Hot Wheels variation any kind. At least I know. If I'm wrong, feel free to remove the mark. And of course apologize.

A greeting.Serralson 00:34, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

They are characters from the Battle force 5 Cartoon. Kind of pointless as stand alone pages but importsnt for a Battle force 5 section.... that we do not have! Sinnin  talk  Contributions 02:00, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry Everybody

I apologise to everybody on here because I haven't been doing much or adding any new items. But I seem to be being forced out of the Hot Wheels collecting hobby. The one store I have within 30 miles to buy Hot Wheels, (and every other kind of diecast I liked), has stopped ordering new cars. They haven't ordered any new ones since December 2009. I can't be a part of a hobby that I'm physically prevented from being a part of, so I don't know what to do. I'm certainly not able to buy cars off eBay, at ten times the normal price, and you can't order specific cars any place else online. I'm reading that this phenomenon is happening in other parts of the country, so I'm not the only one experiencing this. Does anybody have any ideas as to what could possibly be going on here? It's like I read over on Hobby Talk the other night - you don't go to a McDonald's and they say, "Oh, we're out of french fries right now." They always have french fries, it's the way businesses used to be run. Now, I go places and they just tell me things like, "Oh, nobody buys <insert whatever product you're looking for here> anymore." Could the reason why nobody buys those things anymore is because nobody sells them anymore? It's impossible to buy something that's not on any shelf, isn't it? Things are changing all around us. Any thoughts? Anybody? Kenny HaarFager 20:39, September 1, 2010 (UTC)

This news saddened me, and I worry a lot. Because if the country that gave birth to Hot Wheels, now no longer buy them.That we who live in places as far away as Spain???.Because if it is difficult to find some models of the regular series here in Barcelona. (I'm not talking about special series, why not come. Or very late and in short runs) I can only imagine if the manufacturing is curtailed or canceled. Hopefully it's something the market transition, and suddenly everything becomes normal. Meanwhile Kenny do not be discouraged. You're a great contributor, and a great person. And if I can help you from here to track possible "catch." Do not hesitate to ask. We are all a great community ....Best regards.Serralson 23:00, September 1, 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for your kind words, Serralson! I wanted to also add that my area never carried the special series. So, there have been a lot of good cars posted on here for this year that I would have liked to add to my collection. I personally feel that this has been one of the best years ever for Hot Wheels, in that they had a high number of the kind of cars that I liked the design of. Kenny HaarFager 00:00, September 2, 2010 (UTC)
Time to move to the city!! I cant help you with mainlines but I have about 30 cases worth of garage, delivery and speed machine cars that I would be more then happy to sell you at my cost (Kenny not the international guys) which is about 50 cents per car over walmart prices. Either way they cant take your photography hobby away from you! Sinnin  talk  Contributions 04:09, September 2, 2010 (UTC)
Move to the city, David!? That's their plan! And I'm not going to fall for it! True, I still have plenty of cars right here yet to photograph. Matter of fact, I'm photographing cars as I type this! Kenny HaarFager 04:43, September 2, 2010 (UTC)
Sorry to hear that, especially because of how much you contributed to this wikia! My suggestion, (NOTE: I have no idea if this helps you at all but it can be useful) Is to look EVERYWHERE for the cars, and, I mean EVERYWHERE! Try grocery stores, garage sales, dollar stores, second-hand stores and flea markets! These places usually work out well, as the other day I found a FE 599 GTB Fiorano and a Buggatti Veyron! DON'T GIVE UP!

I'll tell you from personal experience. To get an Open Fire Redline is also difficult and not only in Blue color. Because they are highly valued.

I hope you serve.

Note: If this list has any error, please correct me anyone.Serralson 15:24, August 30, 2010 (UTC)

No Way! I have the chrome P-911 w\reds! Here is a pic.could you please tell me how much could it be worth?
-check it out,the image is on my page

SyndicateOfSpeed 13:14, August 31, 2010 (UTC)

As seen in the photo. And according to STD page. Your model corresponds to the version of the Porsche chrome P-911 w / Red & Lt. Green stripes on top, '911 'on hood, Black interior, Grey Tint Window, unpainted Hong Kong Base, w / RL' s. Corresponding to the 1976 Super Chromes Series.

Its nominal value would be: Loose and immaculate condition: $ 55. In its original card and in perfect condition: $ 75.

These ratings are unrestored original versions.

Although his condition is very sad. I recommend you try to restore it, since the result would be very satisfactory. And do not doubt that you could do it;)

A greeting. Serralson 15:15, August 31, 2010 (UTC)

Check out Baja Bug TH File.

I looked at it and seemed to make it worse (imagine that).However it is ,literaly Greek to me! Pirate4722 17:47, August 22, 2010 (UTC)

You only looked at it and it became worse? Worse in what way? Is that a new feature of the Wiki? The ability to change things with only looking at them? You said it was Greek to you, I thought Volkswagens were German? What exactly are you saying and where can I see this file? HaarFager 18:49, August 22, 2010 (UTC)
You can see it at the 2010 TH location.The pic was misplaced & I looked at the source file and it was writtin in Greek or ?
You always want to be so curt with me for some unapparent reason.I won't bother you again!

Pirate4722 22:13, August 22, 2010 (UTC)

What I was trying to say in my apparently confused manner, was that I couldn't understand what you were saying or asking of me. If you have any concerns or problems such as this, you're correct in bringing it to my attention. So, don't stop anything you're doing, just try to explain yourself better. You have to admit you did say you just looked at it and made it worse. What do you think I would make of that statement? Please don't stop "bothering" me, only "bother" me in a more clear manner. That's all I'm asking. You said two things, one about looking at a file, and then it being Greek to you. From that, it seemed to me that you were saying the file was Greek. Do you mean the file name? If so, you didn't make that very clear. Do you understand what I'm saying? Please let me know. Kenny HaarFager 22:27, August 22, 2010 (UTC)
How come I haven't heard back on this? It was something you felt you needed to bring to my attention and I responded right away that I wasn't sure what you were saying. You say I was curt to you. Would you rather I be rude? I can do rude, but prefer not to. I am here to be as helpful as I can be and EVERY time somebody brings something to me, I do my best to see what I can do about correcting it. How come it's always me that gets despised and hated on here? I try to be the most helpful and wind up being the most vilified. Well, thanks everybody for making me feel so wanted. Kenny HaarFager 23:52, August 24, 2010 (UTC)
When you see the "greek" mumbo jumbo file names it means the files were taken from Ebay (That is a literal translation). Next to STD images Ebay images are my second favorite to tag for deletion!! As for what ever else is going on in this topic, im going to just stay out =P Sinnin  talk  Contributions 11:48, August 25, 2010 (UTC)

Startup

Hi there!, how long has it been since the hot wheels wiki was created? SyndicateOfSpeed 13:39, August 9, 2010 (UTC)

Well, I'd say it was created about March 23rd, 2008. If you'll look along the left side of the page, there is a link marked "Special pages." If you click that, it will take you to a long list of pages and one of them is called "Oldest pages." That is how I found out how old the Hot Wheels Wiki was. I knew it was very old and that I joined it after it had been created for only about 6 months. Hope this helps! Kenny HaarFager 13:58, August 9, 2010 (UTC)
I wasn't really looking for help, just interested! I thought you were one of the people who started this site!

I Know What's Going On

It's a big plot, right? Designed to get me to not like Hot Wheels anymore. First, my one store stops buying any Hot Wheels, none since December anyway, then I get strange e-mail alerts about files I'm supposedly watching that are just uploaded today and have no back history and therefore no way that I could have tagged them to watch in the first place. Who is behind this evil scheme? Kenny HaarFager 02:50, August 4, 2010 (UTC)

Too bad. At least you have access to all the cars in America! In Canada we never got the Ferrari 430 Scuderia!

-I have one anyways! SyndicateOfSpeed 21:35, August 6, 2010 (UTC)


ICONS!

Hey, HaarFager, If you like, I can make you a cool icon! Just post a pic. below and i'll post it on your page for you!

Thanks, but no thanks. This is basically an online encyclopedia not a social networking site. Therefore I do not require an avatar. Thanks anyway! Kenny HaarFager 14:10, August 2, 2010 (UTC)
You need to {[ExPrEsS===YoUrSeLf]}

SyndicateOfSpeed 21:35, August 6, 2010 (UTC)

Oddities...

As you may know, there are some "oddities" from the messages i have posted. This is because my little brother had to mess around with it an post it while i answered the door! SyndicateOfSpeed 13:32, August 2, 2010 (UTC)

Banning

Hi there, I was just wondering, what happens if you get banned? Can you still access you're page or not? can you look at HW wiki? can you edit things or see other peoples profile\messages? I'm pretty sure SINNIN will answer this since he is ALWAYS ON THIS "WIKIA" ;) SyndicateOfSpeed 16:27, August 1, 2010 (UTC)!

I'm not a hundred percent certain, but I think you can access the whole site fine, you just won't be able to change it in any way. Maybe someone can confirm this? HaarFager 22:03, August 1, 2010 (UTC)

RE. Parker/Edwards

There was a cutlery company back in the 70's & 80's by that name.They were located right here in "The Heart of Dixie".Although I doubt the two are related. Pirate4722 07:01, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

Maybe that's why the name sounded familiar to me! Thanks for that information. Kenny HaarFager 09:43, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

Ban Request

I don't believe I need to argue my case on this one. I request the immediate ban on user John Wilhelm Sinnin  talk  Contributions 20:13, July 10, 2010 (UTC)

I fully agree with sinnin. The presence of John Wilhelm, disturbing the work of other users of this wikia. Please block this user. Serralson 20:51, July 10, 2010 (UTC)
I notice the 'gentleman' in question is still actively adding,with 'Reckless Abandon'.Not only here,but The Matchbox WIKI as well! FYI

Pirate4722 19:39, July 11, 2010 (UTC)

I would also request you give SyndicateOfSpeed a temporary time out for adding prophanity to pages.. '70 Ford Torino and Oscar Mayer Wienermobile Sinnin  talk  Contributions 21:49, July 11, 2010 (UTC)
I like to think it's not vandalism this user is performing, just misguided edits that he thinks are good. I've asked him to explain himself so that this can be worked out, but if he doesn't respond, I'll have no other choice but to grant him a short "vacation." Vacations are a good thing, right? I don't really like to get so drastic on users as banning them unless they get real mean and hostile like.... well, you know who. I am aware of what he's doing, though, but thanks for bringing it to my attention. I was gone a few days, so that's why this response is a little late. Sorry about that! Kenny HaarFager 23:09, July 11, 2010 (UTC)
I agree that the intentions may not be vandalism, But i like to use the word as a tell all description for an unacceptable edit. Sinnin  talk  Contributions 23:34, July 11, 2010 (UTC)
I've also noticed he's been screwing stuff up in the Matchbox Wikia, since it seems like I'm the only one that's been editing for the past two weeks, haha! I think he means well, but after multiple warnings it seems like he doesn't get the hint...User:RazoE
I think he speaks another language and that he don't speak no English none to good. So, I'm trying to take that into account in this particular situation. Don't forget me! I've been adding some good things to the Matchbox Wiki recently. Kenny HaarFager 18:37, July 13, 2010 (UTC)

Radar Ranger Question

I have taken new pics of my Radar Ranger (gear style wheels) for the page, but can not add them. I give permission to whomever has control of this section to use my pictures to replace the pics of the other R. Ranger with gear style wheels. I think it is only fair to say I had a little to do with this new change as I was the one who decided back a few months ago to put my pic in here with both sides showing. I was told then it didn't match the rest of the page, (it actually didn't..my fault) so it got removed....but I was never told that we were changing it to this new "sides" style! Who dropped the ball? Why wasn't I asked to contribute new pics? And while we are all here to make this the best wiki page we can - lets work together, shall we? I am not directing my anger just towards you, Harrfager - but I was told that you might have this page locked, so this is why I bring this discussion here. I left this same message on the Radar Ranger page as well. Pirate dave 12:09, May 31, 2010 (UTC)

You were right in bringing this topic to me. I am, after all, an Administrator, so thank you for bringing it to my attention. Like you, I feel we should all be working together, but sometimes a casting comes along that some particular member really loves and collects every variation of. Such as me and my love of the Deora II. Unlike me and my love of the Deora II, I don't remove pictures that are adequate and already in place to replace them with pictures of my own. Not saying that this is a bad thing, but it does happen. So, it could be why some of yours were removed - I don't really know, so I'm only speculating. Usually, if the new picture is all right and if the original photographer who's picture got replaced doesn't say anything, I'll leave the new picture up. There have been a few times when a new user will come along and replace a perfectly good picture with a perfectly awful one and I will bring this to their attention and replace the bad image with the original one. Not very often, but it has happened.
It's also a good thing that you're not directing your anger at me. Because I didn't do anything to anger you in the first place. A general consensus was reached about how to best display the Radar Ranger page, which included showing both different sides, so I implemented the change. I wasn't really in favor of the change, (I think either side would have been sufficient enough to show what it looks like), but more were, so I changed it. Perhaps the way it is now really does look better. I don't know but nobody else can definitely say either, so it stays. It's just a judgement call. But in this particular case, more judgements seemed to be for the change than against it, so it evolved into what it is today. Yes, I did lock it, but for a perfectly good reason. You shouldn't be getting mad over a decision an Administrator makes. I locked that page because it kept getting changed just to prove a point and that's not how it's supposed to work around here; as everybody surely knows by now. But, you have done what I feel is the best way to do things. You have requested more work to be done to a locked page. Being as I am an Administrator, I will do all I can to help you out with your proposed changes. If you can give me links here of the new pictures you want incorporated into the Radar Ranger page, and which ones you want replaced and removed, I will make the changes for you. Especially since, if I read you correctly, you're just improving some previous pictures that were yours to begin with. I don't know how many of my pictures I felt needed replacing and did so, but I upgrade shots when and where I can with what I feel to be better ones. So I applaud your efforts to improve your own work! Thanks! Just let me know where the new images you've uploaded are, give me the information as to which one's they are and where they go and which are the old images you want replaced, I'll do my best to incorporate them. Now, I can't see colors, so you'll have to be fairly descriptive about each and every image so that I can definitely know which ones they are. Kenny HaarFager 22:59, June 2, 2010 (UTC)
I thing "angry" is the wrong word. Annoyed is a better fit. It just seems everyone has these huge chips on their shoulders. It would be more beneficial if we could all play nice together. Anyway, the pics are saved in "new pictures" archive. They are:
Left-side-radar-ranger.jpg
Right-side-radar-ranger.jpg
They match very close to the way the rest of the radar rangers are presented now. Thank you. Pirate dave 01:37, June 5, 2010 (UTC)
If would a lot more helpful to me if you describe them just a little bit better than "Left-side-radar-ranger," etc. Like the year of release and series and such as that. It would help me to be more accurate in where to place them. Thanks! HaarFager 04:06, June 15, 2010 (UTC)

What's Up?

I'm back, and I have a question. Why won't the categories work at '67 Plymouth GTX page? Fclass 23:24, May 19, 2010 (UTC)

They work fine for me. Maybe it's an issue with your computer, sometimes things like this happen. Try signing out of the Hot Wheels Wiki, clearing your computer's cache and then restart and sign back in. That should fix it for you. If not, please detail exactly what it's doing or not doing for you again and I'll look into it even further. I tried the categories and they worked exactly like they should. I even added another one to see if that might be what you're reporting, but it worked like it should also. Try the steps above and if that doesn't work, get back with me on it. I'm about to head out of town shortly and I won't be back till after midnight or so, but I'll check back just in case. Thanks for bringing it to my attention! Kenny HaarFager 15:38, May 20, 2010 (UTC)
I too have had this problem in the past, It was a 5-pack page, and for the life of me i cant remember which one. I need to figure it out and see if it works now. Sinnin  talk  Contributions 20:46, May 20, 2010 (UTC)
Are people allowed to use photos from hotwheelscollectors.com? Because Superman43 used some at the 2010 Hot Wheels international list. Fclass 18:04, May 23, 2010 (UTC)
Before I can answer your new question, I'd just like to know if your problem with the categories has been solved? Are they working correctly for you now? Did anything I suggest help? As to whether or not people should be using pictures from hotwheelscollectors.com, no they should not. And when I see one that has been used, I remove it immediately. If you know of some you suspect to be used in this illegal and unethical manner, please point them out to me and I'll take care of them. Thanks again! Kenny HaarFager 23:03, June 2, 2010 (UTC)

Although I don't claim to be psychic like you Kenny, I got a funny feeling you think this is about being right or wrong, and it AIN'T!


It's not me being wrong, nor you being right that I care about. It's not my way or your way.
It's about what LOOKS best and easiest to decipher by the casual browser. If you persist in believing otherwise, and ascribe your own emotions to my actions, in spite of me clearly stating here, as clearly and succinctly as possible - it's not about whether I like you or not, it's your actions and what's best for the wiki in both design and credibility!
Unless there is a clear standard, and a bonafide rule come to by consenus (with options for adaptation) you should not be changing someone else's work. If you don't agree that what they did looks good and violates some clearly stated standard, you should offer the editor an option to polish it up himself, offer your own suggestions or polish it up yourself, but DON'T hack it into gibberish!

Another thing Kenny, if you're not caught up, you should get there before reading this, If you insist this blow up is entirely my fault, I think you'll find, if you care to review the escalation of events, it was not I who first took off the gloves. I held my tongue, time and again. IN WRITINING! When you attacked me, and THAT is how I see it, I stood up and defended myself. If you don't like it, tough! And if you don't get it, I fight back!!! And fiercely! As fiercely as I did for your damn freedom to do this!! And I'm committed to fighting back, till death do I stop!!! THAT is a citizen/soldier, of which this country was founded by, and I share company with. What the hell have you done for the wiki but disrupt creativity with your outbursts (you too Dave - I STAND for the kids that desire to see the specs here at the wiki, I just don't know the best way to do it.)


So when you banned me at the drop off a hat, to me, you took away my freedom to respond! And again, I ask, how'd that work out for ya? Now you'll better understand me and maybe, just maybe, treat me with some respect or leave me the hell alone (and my work here)


The ONLY work of mine I want you to touch, is EVERYTHING if you can wipe it all, pictures and editing history, clean from the wiki, which I don't believe is possible at this point.

New Info

I have just uncovered,what I believe,is some interesting Info on AAR 'Cudas (Riehlman version) quite by accident. However in view of the veracity of multiple imagery recently, shoiuld I pursue the matter photographicly & verbally, or just verbally first? Many Thanx,and furthermore I'm not questioning anyone's sanity,except perhaps my own! Pirate4722 08:00, May 3, 2010 (UTC)

Well, you've certainly got my curiosity piqued! I think that AAR Cuda is a great casting, so anything you can tell me would be nice. Kenny HaarFager 09:55, May 3, 2010 (UTC)
Last night I was just looking for something or other to do with Phil Riehlman and wound up at the fact page about him on the WIKI.As I'm sure you are aware I happen to be am avid AAR 'Cuda collector.I was in the process of adding a pic when I looked at the car,which was driver side facing.The 'Hot Wheels logo' aft of the rear wheel,suddenly said PLYMOUTH ! I said What! This was one of the original Orange 1st version.I was using it to typify the series as it was the first one.I proceeded to discover the following.All orange AAR's with the Hotwheels Tampo on the passenger side Had Plymouth on the Driver side.All the ones with No tampo at all on the P.S. were blank on the D.S. as well.The Magenta s' follow the exact same nomenclature.The White,of which there are gloss & matte, that have the Plymouth Tampo on the P.S. have the same on the D.S. All the ones with the Hotwheels Tampo on the P.S. have Plymouth on the D.S.(just like orange & magenta) and I've never seen a white one with NO Tampo.Also can be said the same for the Green,only in the reverse.I've never seen one WITH any Tampo,at all.I looked at 16 that I have and it stuck right to the last one!As far as the white not having one at all or the green ever having one.I've been observing them on The bay for months.Trying to find one or the other.Actually, along with the 56 F-100's,I've been observing them for quite some time.Sorry abut the long read,but you know me.I rarely say anything in ten words that couldn't be said in three. Pirate4722 06:11, May 4, 2010 (UTC)
Very interesting find! It sounds like it's being done intentionally instead of errors of omission. Wouldn't you think so, too? HaarFager 10:15, May 4, 2010 (UTC)
Exactly.however their motivation is not clear.Perhaps it's just one of their little pranks.You know like on the rocket box,one tampo on the first side and another on he opposite.I'm sure there are a multitude of others.Some other,yet to be discovered.Much to my amazement was,that I had never noticed this one before.Another thought I had was that it might be a subtle method of tracking production runs.Who knows.One thing we are aware of is that the Hotwheels people are extremely quirky.Well one of these nights I'll have to make a photographic record of it,then find a place to list it.Probably in the gallery.That will be of your determination.Also while we are discussing this,I think the other versions,such as the Dan Gurney examples and the MOPAR performance set,should be integrated into the same page.Very similar to the way we have the 56 F-100s.That way they will all be visible in the same location but their differences noted.That way they will all be available for comparison purposes.That's why I said that I think that we have,at the present,the best format for the 56's at present they just need to compartment ed.The regular 70 Barracudas are separated into the two versions very nicely,Perhaps some method as such that.Well that's my report.In 10,000 words or less.Both these vehicles need to be more treated in a more cohesive manner (56's & AAR's) then I feel WE will have the best and easiest to access format of all.There are a many other Pages that we all need to cooperate and work in unison on,rather than arguing about who's right and who's wrong.After all,we are just a bunch of grown men,playing with Kids toys. Pirate4722 16:27, May 4, 2010 (UTC)
Hey, Hot Wheels came out in 1968 and I started liking and playing with them then. If I'm to be considered as an adult, (which I deny!), then these cars have aged as much as I have. I think they should be called "Adult toys!" It sounds better, ha! HaarFager 07:06, May 5, 2010 (UTC)
Alas,it seems nearly the whole world is in denial.However I do believe in some instances' Some of the Higher quality Hot Wheels are referred to as 'Adult Toys'.I'm not certain you saw the irony in what I said.By the way have you had time to assimilate the above post? If so what is your opinion?Pirate4722 08:03, May 5, 2010 (UTC)
"The whole world is in denial?" Not me, I deny that statement! Ha. I personally think that a casting which is essentially meant to be the same one by Mattel, but is in fact redone with new castings and which have some slight differences, looks good when displayed together on one page. That way, it's easier to see the subtle changes that differentiates the various molds used. We do have a precedent on the Wiki displaying what you propose, so I don't see anything wrong with doing it again for the casting you speak of. HaarFager 06:27, May 7, 2010 (UTC)
I said "nearly",mostly because I certainly didn't want to include myself,or you either,for that matter.That is excellent news. About the AARs'.Being a clear thinking young man,I felt fairly certain you would agree.More on that later.I just wanted to clarify the other statement for now!

People deleting your code

I have read your rant on people deleting your "|-" I went through the Mazda Furai page history and saw how you re-added it. I opened the edit window and the added "|-" was not there even in source mode. Made a save without doing a single change, then checked my edit history and it shows that I removed it. So I have concluded that the wikia editor is definately automatically removing any incomplete line entries upon saving. And is in no way the fault of "thedarknights". Sinnin 05:18, April 9, 2010 (UTC) Also i forgot to tell u your woodie mailed out on monday, u should get it next week. Sinnin 05:18, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

David, thank you so much for telling me about this feature, I was totally not aware of it. I owe my most sincere apologies to everybody I accused. I wish they could tell me that the things I do get automatically removed by a robot. It would sure save me a lot of time. My thoughts are, "why the heck am I here, they certainly don't need me?" I might as well quit too. HaarFager 05:32, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

Technical Specs comments and category talk

1st, I really hate the wiki for conversation. We should commander some section over at HWC - maybe more exposure will get more contributors over here. There's been some GREAT posts over there with info previously unreported. I especially enjoyed the HW Race deco team threads. Anyway... I remember seeing the editors of the specs puttin em on when they first started - not a project I would have started or really care about. At first I had no idea where they were gettin the info from - and again, I could care less if the stats were right or wrong, real or imaginary - because ultimately, (for me) this hobby is about the 1:64 scale cars, and if you track and shoot (with your Hot Wheel Radar gun) these cars, I SERIOUSLY doubt they'll be even close. (Especially when you flip the switch to register in scale.) And you're more than likely right about where the stats are ultimately coming from - Marketing, not engineering. The only reason I posted the spec pic was to let you know the editor himself wasn't makin the stuff up on his own. As for completing the addition of specs for every casting - I'm not interested, but to each his own and as long as it doesn't detract from the rest of the Wiki - I say let `em at it - there's more than enough room on the page for us all to play. bob ranugad 16:58, March 28, 2010 (UTC)

Hey BOB.I am of the opinion that in reality it does harm the WIKI.It severely distorts our credibility with the curios casual reader,observing this site,looking for credible information.Being unfamiliar with the WIKI, and probably an automobile enthusiast of some degree.Quite possibly a knowledgeable One.A glance at that absurdity will undoubtedly amaze him to the degree of Question-ability that he won't return a second time,or worse yet jokingly.Also this is not your WIKI,it's everyone's.With that in mind we should strive for more actual accuracy,rather than abjectness for our own sake.It is undoubtedly the hobby of more more than one non member observer.So lets impress them with our knowledge of these 1:64 cars,and not some obscurity unknown to most.Lets all enjoy the WIKI,in an atmosphere of camaraderie rather than discord.This,is more apt to attract more,and more responsible members. Pirate4722 19:11, March 28, 2010 (UTC)
Valid points. But in the spirit of inclusion instead of exclusion, maybe for those wishing to see these stats on the catsing page, they can moved below the versions table, with a disclaimer/explanation concerning the origin of said stats. Personally I wouldn't go through it, but I also have no objections to them being included, front page or talk page.
back to the original subject of this section....
I'm messing with categories some more and came across an anomoly. I added Category: Track Stars to the Drift King page but it seemed to not be showing up on the category page, I thought it was like the shoe box and went looking for some coding error - found none. It took me awhile, but eventually I noticed it listed under the # sign on the category page. If you follow any of the categories the drift king is included in, it shows up there, and not under D where it belongs. Anybody got any ideas why this would happen? bob ranugad 00:12, March 29, 2010 (UTC)
Bob, the problem that you described with the Drift King sounded like something I was familiar with, so I went and checked it out. I found and fixed the problem immediately. The only reason the Drift King would show up in the "#" or number column was probably because somebody told it to show up there. For a number to display properly in the number column, a "#" has to be added before the name in the default sort code. It sounded like what was going on and when I looked, there was indeed a "#" before the name. What had probably happened was somebody copied the default sort name from another page, I do it all the time myself, and when they went to type in the new name, they forgot to remove the "#." I simply removed it and now it should be working correctly. Thanks for bringing it to my attention! Kenny. HaarFager 00:58, March 29, 2010 (UTC)
Excellent! Now I'll know when I see THAT! (as opposed to gallery screw ups - lol). I think we've been under utilyzing the category. Have you checked out the new category page I did for the X-Raycers? ranugad 01:05, March 29, 2010 (UTC)
No, I haven't seen the category page for the X-Raycers. How do I get there to see it? HaarFager 01:18, March 29, 2010 (UTC)
I actually started the X-Raycers before I did the Fourth of July and every casting page that was an xraycer needs to be tagged too. On the Xraycers page I was focused on getting every img. ranugad 14:46, April 6, 2010 (UTC)
I rushed that out this morning, it seems you can't actually creat a link to a category page. Except in the categories section at the bottom of every page. Right now this page falls under the X-Raycers and Fourth of July categories because I tried to link to them in the text above. I added the bold just now. The catgories should be deleted from this page when we're done. ranugad 04:18, April 7, 2010 (UTC)
I'd really like to help you on this, Bob, but I don't have a clue as to what you're talking about. I'm ill and have been sick for the last 5 or 6 days, so I've probably not got a very clear head. Some medicines will do that to you. Could you please explain what you're attempting to do and what you need me to help with? HaarFager 04:52, April 7, 2010 (UTC)
Sorry Ken, I thought you had a better grasp of the categories than I do. And since I'm still tryin to figure out how the category/sub-category thingy works, I'm not sure I'm ready to articulate this feeling I've been getting, as I rummage around the wiki, that we are seriously underutilizing its potential. And although I did stumble across a comment by you (or maybe it was brad) that another user (crs prevent me from naming said user) was told to not bother adding categories to image files. I had already tagged every X-Raycer picture with a category marking and when I called up the category page, there they all were, a little out of order, but there. I thought maybe you had noticed this work as I saw a comment by you on the Fourth of July category page, which I did after a few others, like Chuck e. cheese - and dangit CSS is the cause of capitalization error, which I'm unsure of how to fix beyond deleting each casting current category, then delete the category, then rename it. Which leads me to ask, have you seen the unused and sometimes redundant categories that have been created? bob ranugad 23:14, April 8, 2010 (UTC)
Sadly, I should have a better grasp on the Category aspect of the Wiki, but I rarely use the categories to find what I need, usually I'll use the links in the tables to get to the same kind of information. For instance: If a car was released one year in the "Surf Board Show Car" Series (Totally made up just to use as an example), true I could click on the category at the bottom and find out what other cars are also in the series. But, I'm a visual type of guy and prefer to click on the link usually provided in the table for the description of the "Surf Board Show Car" series and that will take me to a page that generally has all the cars pictured and every fact about them I need to know. People are real good on here about creating these special pages, and it's some I like to create also. Using the category pages just seems like an extra step I don't really need to do. To me, it's all about the cars so I like to see the cars.
But, to answer your question, I have seen what appeared to be redundant categories, but since I don't use them much, I'm reluctant to delete them because somebody else may be using those categories and it's something they like. I figure more categories don't hurt anything since they're listed toward the bottom of the page, but they might be helpful to have. So, I feel the more, the merrier! Anything to help people use this Wiki to it's fullest capabilities and to be able to find out what they need to know in the method that's easist for them. Just my thoughts on the matter. Kenny HaarFager 05:26, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

Finish What You Started

Hey Kenny.I notice a lot of times,when I'm adding a new version,that I have got to finish up the one before it. Most always the tampo is involved. I imagine that's because it takes a little more time than just adding a pic..I t seems to me that if someone is going to take the relatively short time to add the pic. they should take the flippin' time to do the whole job!! It's like they're saying,well my time's more valuable than yours you do it! Kinda' irritating,isn't it?.....That's all I've got to report. Pirate4722 06:03, March 27, 2010 (UTC)

I've noticed exactly what you describe many times. And, I've been guilty of just that crime myself. But I have a good reason for doing it. I can even have the car in front of me and will leave categories blank, hoping someone else has the same car and can provide the missing information. I'd rather leave the line blank, however, than fill in wrong information. I'm totally colorblind, you see. So, that's my excuse, but what's everybody else's excuse? It could be because they're not familiar with how things work on here or it could be laziness or something else. Maybe they'll see this point you've made and try to improve what they do. We can only hope! HaarFager 06:16, March 27, 2010 (UTC)
I too am guilty of this. Often I upload pictures at home, Then later make the line entries while im sitting at work and no longer have the car in hand. I like to be exact on all details, so if i am unsure I leave it blank. Then I usually forget to go back.... I have at least 500 cars to add, but i get so burned out making line entries and figuring out simple yet complete tampo descriptions that its nice to leave a little work for some of the others to do! Adding descriptions is a simple way for new users to figure the wikia out, since making a line entry for a first timer, can be enough to turn away good potential contributers. I know thats 2 completely different reasons but i use both =P Sinnin 11:39, March 27, 2010 (UTC)
Kenny u being colorblind explains alot. Those new troop convoy pictures are great, but that bright purple background with the dark olive green truck, is an interesting choice to say the least! (just giving you a hard time =P) Sinnin 11:47, March 27, 2010 (UTC)
A viable reason is acceptable,as opposed to a lame excuse.I'm not referring to things of that nature.However Laziness and disregard were what I had in mind.I'm certainly not trying to be enigmatic about this situation ether.A physical conflagration is another circumstance all together.Having just overcome a vision impairment myself,I can appreciate that.Even though in your case it seems to not be a handicap.As far as being simulating to a beginner,I can relate to that also,in a positive manner though.So with all things considered,perhaps it is just"The nature of The Beast".Also I would be extremely curious where one obtains the various vehicle "specs",found at the top of many articles.I also question the validity of Most of them.Oh well,that's all I've got to report. Pirate4722 20:55, March 27, 2010 (UTC)
I have looked a few specs up to try and confirm, it seems that there isn't 2 web sites on the web that list the exact same specs for any given car. as for the hot wheels designed cars. alot of the cards have some fun specs for kids on the back. Ranugad posted a pic, the first time i ranted about this rubbish. A good example of misleading tech specs is the hot bird, where it lists the firebird as having a 400CID engine pushing 415HP!!! that poor 77+ firebird with the pollution controls only managed to ever squeeze out a whimpy 185HP. there were also many other engine choices for that car, so just saying it had the 400 is a poor description. Sinnin 10:47, March 28, 2010 (UTC)

Category / casting fix needed

Hey Kenny, or anyone that sees this. I've been muckin about with the categories and found a few 2000 First editions missing the category on the casting page.

Check out the Shoe Box. Something weird is going on. Categories are there, yet not. bob

ranugad 06:09, March 23, 2010 (UTC)

I took one look at it and saw the problem immediately, Bob. Somebody had erased part of the coding for the Gallery section at the bottom of the page and it was causing strange things to happen. Somebody had moved the Default sort above the Gallery, I didn't look to see who, but since I was the one who added the Gallery and the one image in it, it happened after the Gallery was added. It's fixed now. Generally, I've found that when strange things are happening, it's usually part of some code missing somewhere. Thanks for bringing it to my attention! Kenny HaarFager 06:25, March 23, 2010 (UTC)
Hey Kenny.I may have done it when I added the 49 Woodies' everthing looked ok to me.Sorry if it was my fault and thanx for the new page! Pirate4722 16:17, March 23, 2010 (UTC)
It's easy to do, because sometimes it still happens to me. And I know why. For some reason, the Hot Wheels Wiki has a feature that, when you try to put the cursor over a certain amount of text, it extends itself to what it perceives to be the end of what you're trying to copy as a help. Generally, it's not a help because I'm not trying to select that much text. So, if a person isn't careful, too much text will be removed unknowingly. I wish there was a way to turn this feature off so that it would stop trying to "help" me! HaarFager 17:20, March 23, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, and about the new page I created - you're welcome! I just didn't know all the particulars about the cars. So, if you can tell the colors of the windows and stuff, and what kind the base is and all, you can fill in a few of the blank spaces I left. Thanks! HaarFager 17:22, March 23, 2010 (UTC)

What Happened

Hi Kenny.How come you deleted the two 49's? Thay were from a different Series Than Surf's Up,and they were color variations.I thought variation and different set notations were cool.It might help some innocent victim,who isn't familier with that Car,or the HW Wlki.I was under the impression that this was an "info" oriented site.If that's the way Y'all want it,that's cool,you're in charge. Pirate4722 23:25, March 20, 2010 (UTC)

The reason I deleted the two '49's from that particular page was because it was only created to show the different station wagon models that Hot Wheels have released, not variations of the separate models. The original version, if possible, is all that is really needed to show that Hot Wheels has released that model of station wagon. Do you see what I mean? Each one of those different models may have been released in multitudes of different series, but that's not what the page is spotlighting. Just all the different models of stations wagons that have been put out by Mattel. My family had a station wagon when I was little, so you'll know why I created the page - I love 'em! I hope you didn't take offense, because it wasn't directed to you, just that only one was needed. I went with the first one listed is all. I hope this clears things up. Now, on the page for that particular '49 model, all versions are more than welcome, so be sure to add them there. HaarFager 04:05, March 21, 2010 (UTC)
Oh....OK,everything"s cool.I didn't take a personal offense.I just wondered what was Happentn'.Iv'e benn trying to add as many different versions as possible and give the different model sites as much continuity as I can.That's all.I guess you don't want your Station Wagon article 14 pages long.LOL.Man...you would have been happy as a Duck on a Junebug, if you woulda' grown up at my house.My Dad always had a Wagon and a Convert.One time he had a 57 Olds Convert.Silver with a White interior..It had three deuces on it.It was what they called a "J2" option.I hated the white interior.I got to clean the stitching on the white leather seats and door panels.WITH A TOOTHBRUSH!!!

Pirate4722 04:31, March 21, 2010 (UTC)

I'll bet that '57 looked nice, though! HaarFager 05:00, March 21, 2010 (UTC)


It Was Bad to the Bone!The old man would have a couple to many "Shnapps",you could get away with it back then,'Cops didn't bother you unless you were Fallen down,or hit somebody.He'd nail that thing and it'd almost put you in the back seat.You could here that Tri-Power kick in (progressive linkage).That was when I was in my formative years and grew up diggin' cars.Another thing,NO seatbelts either.In 55 He had a BLACK Nomad.Black and White interior.I don't rmember that one as well (8 yrs.old).Yeah Man....you woulda' been in Hog Heaven.


Pirate4722 05:49, March 21, 2010 (UTC)

Coding Question

Danny, do you know of any code a person can add that would make it possible to leave little "notes" in tables without the notes actually showing in the tables, but only showing when you're in the edit table view? It's for the Hot Wheels Wiki, and I think it would be a great thing to have on each line for each car's description what the line is for. This way, you won't have to keep scrolling back up to the top of the table to see which line is for which entry. If you know what I mean. HaarFager 23:08, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

Hi, Kenny! I'm posting this back here so it's easier for you to find it. Sure, I can show you how to to put notes into a table. Here's an example, using a row from the '47 Chevy Fleetline table.

The stuff that you put between those marks won't show up in the table. So... kind of a pain to change lots of tables to that format, but you're right -- it'll make it a lot easier to edit a 13-column table!

I hope everything's going great here. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help! -- Danny@fandom (talk) 09:05, February 24, 2010 (UTC)

Hey Kenny

Haven't seen you "bopping" around the old Wiki for awhile.Hope you're doin' OK.Just thought I'd say HEY.Pirate4722 06:03, January 12, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for asking. I'll be back soon. My mother passed away last week of cancer. I moved in with my parents because they're elderly and I could help with things; and Mom wanted to die at home, so my Father, sister and I took care of her until the end. But, things will level off someday. HaarFager 06:33, January 12, 2010 (UTC)

GOD bless her and yourself.My Mom suffered the same fate.I'll say a prayer for her.Pirate4722 14:54, January 12, 2010 (UTC)

Banning

I noticed that you gave a 3 day ban to shadowrocks, I went through his contributions, and they have all been undone or reverted. You have my vote to extend the ban to 1 year! Sinnin 06:30, January 4, 2010 (UTC)

New Versions

Hi Kenny, this is the OLD but not to wise,Pirate4722.I wonder if you would let me know how to add a new version to an existing page? I just asked Hotwheels1999 but I don't like to impose my ignorance on the regular members.I have some additions to make but I'm afraid I'll mess up the page,I almost did last time.Much obliged to youPirate4722 16:12, November 25, 2009 (UTC)

Here's how I do it. I'll click on the link at the top of the page you want to add a new version that says "Edit this page." Then, I find the coding that covers one whole version of the car. It doesn't matter which one, if there are more than one. I'll copy it and then paste it where I am going to add the new version. This has the advantage of already having most of the code written for most versions. You just change the words to correctly reflect the version you are adding. Be sure to remove the old, copied photo name if you aren't adding a new image and just the description. (I don't know how many times I forget this step!) Hope this helps! HaarFager 17:22, November 25, 2009 (UTC)
Thanks a lot,I'll give it a shot! Ya'll sure make it SOUND EASY!!Pirate4722 18:49, November 25, 2009 (UTC)
No problem! Just don't hesitate to ask me anything else if you're having problems with anything. I might not be able to answer any more tonight and tomorrow, as I'll be busy eating turkey and spending time with my family. Happy Thanksgiving, everybody! HaarFager 19:25, November 25, 2009 (UTC)
Happy Thanksgiving to you too! Hotwheels1999 19:33, November 25, 2009 (UTC)
Thank you Kenny.The same to Ya'llPirate4722 21:53, November 25, 2009 (UTC)
Sinnin's 2 cents....after you click the "edit this page" you will see the editing tools. to add the lines like kenny said you need to go to the page code. on your top right under the "controls" you need to click "view wikitext" then you will see the code. A horizontal line entry looks like the code below, just copy the line entries that look like...
|-

After you copy it place it in the order where the new version goes. Now is a good time to replace the old image name with your new image name (there on the bottom line. From here you can change all the info to reflect the new version or you can click the top right button again to take you back to the editing tools your familiar with. Sinnin 03:47, November 26, 2009 (UTC)
Thanx Sinnin,that's a lot more than two cents worth,I appreciate all the help I can get!
I'm just an old yutz that ain't as computer savvy as you all.I tried to do a 57 earlier and lost the pic.It was supposed to upload but I guess it didn't.I used to be able to do it that way.Maybe that was one of those things that changed.Anyhow,Happy turkey day to ya'Pirate4722 04:13, November 26, 2009 (UTC)
To simplify the learning the process try using the Hot Wheels Wiki:Practice Page I set it up to be show where you need to copy the code. (unfortunately the page works a little different that normal !?!? perhaps an Admin can fix that!) Sinnin 05:01, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

2010 Race World City Series

Hey Kenny, I have been trying to keep the year out of all new series pages, with the exception of those that repeat over multiple years. So if you have no objections, I'd like to change your new page, which is great by the way, to just Race World City Series. BigBadBrad01 19:21, November 19, 2009 (UTC)

Well, that would be fine until they reuse the name for a different series. And they will reuse the name. The only problem with changing it to just "Race World City Series" is this: Enter "Race World City Series" in the search box at left and watch what comes up. Then enter "2010 Race World City Series" and see what comes up. Two different pages. That's why I tried to forestall any search issues or confusion by naming it with the complete "2010 Race World City Series." Try it and then get back with me. I don't really care what it's called because I can use any name for the link to get to it on my user page, so it could be either way and still work. HaarFager 19:55, November 19, 2009 (UTC)
I just thought of something else, Brad. What if they use this series in 2011? Then, you'd have to go back and change it and add the year like you said you were doing with other series pages that are used in multiple years. Just trying to think of everything so we can come to the right conclusion and set the precedent. HaarFager 20:22, November 21, 2009 (UTC)
You never got back with me, Brad, on the results you got when you tried searching for the two different names like I suggested. You did understand what I was saying, didn't you? I hope I wasn't too obtuse. HaarFager 04:21, January 16, 2010 (UTC)
Hey Kenny, good to see you back. I read what happened with your mom. Sorry to hear. I hope your family is doing better. With the issue still at large. I think you may be onto something. Lets try it your way from here on out. BigBadBrad01 07:34, January 16, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for your kind words, Brad. It's getting better all the time. HaarFager 07:55, January 16, 2010 (UTC)

Hello

I'm new here. I just came from hotwheelscollectors.com and saw a new series called Speed Machines for 2010. Is that available here? Rtype5 15:52, November 10, 2009 (UTC)

As soon as they hit the store shelves, I'm sure they'll start showing up on here. Just keep looking back for them! Thanks for asking! HaarFager 21:41, November 10, 2009 (UTC)

Fclass Again

Please delete I Have a Question?. There's no reason for it to exist. I also recommend redirect 2009 Hot Wheels Colr Shifters to Hot Wheels Color Shifters because it has 2008 and 2010 models. One more thing, Mgoch created De Lorean from some 2001 set. Redirect to '81 DeLorean DMC-12. Fclass 15:06, November 2, 2009 (UTC)

I have placed the question on the "I Have A Question" page on the user's talk page who asked it. That's where it belongs. As to the Color Shifters, just take the 2008 and 2010 references and move them to their respective pages. If they don't exist, create those pages because we need them to exist. And about the DeLorean.... after a little research, I have found that Hot Wheels did release three different versions of the DeLorean in 1991, each based on one of the three "Back To The Future" movies. Therefore, it is a different casting of the same car and should by all means have it's own page. I have moved it, however, to what I think is it's correct name of DeLorean Time Machine. That's so it doesn't get confused with the new 2010 casting of the same car called '81 DeLorean DMC-12‎. Hope this clarifies things for everybody! Thanks, Fclass! HaarFager 01:20, November 3, 2009 (UTC)

Just Learning

Thanx for the 411,Kenny.As a matter of fact,I do have a couple questions.I've got some cars that are not shown in existing entries.You know,like a different car or a variation.That's what I was trying to figure out when you picked up the category thing,I guess.I never did figure out how and abandoned the project before I loused anything up.Also,I think my pics.were wrong somehow and Brad had to straighten them out.I'm a rookie right at the moment (duh) however I want to do this correctly.So, don't hesitate to correct,I'm cool with it.Gotta' learn somehow,I'm 62 and I guess I'll learn this the same as everything else!!

JLJ
That's how I learned, too! As to some of the cars you have that you think are variations or different in some way, I say go ahead and upload them and at least put them in a Gallery on the page for that particular car, if you're not sure. Maybe somebody will recognize it and know more about it. You could always caption them with something like "Suspected variation," or something to that effect so that people will know there's some question as to it's identity. I hope this helps! I like to see any and all pictures, so upload all you want! You can visit my user page to see some of the pictures I've uploaded - I just love Hot Wheels! HaarFager 15:41, November 1, 2009 (UTC)

Anyone care to explain about members copying information word for word from our club's website?

And then publishing it here without any references. I have put in over 3800 hours (and still do about 50 hours a week, researching and publishing data and updates on our club's website. And now it's showing up here without any citations or references. -Rob South Texas Diecast Collectors

I too have noticed a few of my descriptions overwritten with exact copys of texas' descriptions. Rob if you could check the history and find out the person responsible, im sure that would greatly help the admins reach a satisfactory solution for you. Sinnin 00:58, October 29, 2009 (UTC)
Rob, could you please give me examples of what you mean. Then, I'll check to see who is responsible and personally make sure it doesn't happen again. I know how much work you put into your site and I'd hate to take anything away from that. So please just let me know and I'll see to it that it does not happen. Thanks!

These are the links that were sent to me via email.

I checked it out and verified that the descriptions were word for word.
I also sent an email to the wikia community support about this.
-Rob

It was me. I wasn't trying to steal your work. I was just adding versions to the pages. I should have added you as the reference. I'm sorry. It's not personal. Me not referencing you was an honest mistake. If you want to ban me, go ahead. Fclass 18:29, October 29, 2009 (UTC)

You won't be banned Fclass. I understand it was an honest mistake. I'm leaving it up to Rob as to what he wants to do. Rob, if you want me to remove the info from the page that is yours, I will remove it. If you want me to add a reference link at the bottom, I'll do that. Its up to you. Also, I am willing to give you my personal email if you would like to find a way to deal with this in the future. I have caught people in the past using pics from your site and I have taken them down when I knew they didn't have your permission. Please get back to me at your convenience. BigBadBrad01 20:30, October 29, 2009 (UTC)
No problem. Thanks for letting me know what was happening. I'm out of town (at work)
until Sunday morning. I will email you once I'm back home and get caught up on a few
things. Thanks again for looking into this for me. -Rob

It shouldn't be deleted just because it doesn't have any information on the page yet. Someone might come along that knows about those cars and be able to fill it in. An Administrator would know this. Yes, there are other Administrators besides Brad and I. HaarFager 14:44, October 28, 2009 (UTC)

Pictures of some designers

I recently went to the Hotwheels Collectors Convention. I only went to get autographs and it worked out just fine. Along with the autographs, I took pictures of the designers who were signing. My question today is: Would it be alright to post the pictures on the pages for the designers? Since they are in a very public place signing, I see no reason why I could not put a picture of Phil Rielhman on the page with his design of the Drag Bus, or his Dairy Delivery page. Let me know, Thanks

I don't see any problem with it. BigBadBrad01 20:47, October 11, 2009 (UTC)
Could you add a Gallery to Larry Wood, Phil Riehlman, Howard Rees, and Dave Weise? Thanks!
Just insert this text into the coding at the bottom of the page you desire to add a gallery to. BigBadBrad01 07:23, October 12, 2009 (UTC)
  • <gallery>File:(INSERT FILE HERE)</gallery>
Oh, I see Brad explained how to do that. I added them in before I refreshed my user page. Well, they're there anyway, ready to fill in. HaarFager 07:50, October 12, 2009 (UTC)
I comment on this because I care about the integrity of this website. Fclass 15:05, October 12, 2009 (UTC)

WOW, check out this stud muffin, BigBadBrad01. I figured I'd also give a face to the name so I am not this horrible dictator. LOL. BigBadBrad01 08:35, October 7, 2009 (UTC)

Well, Mr. Muffin, that's not at all what I pictured you to look like! I imagined a 3-piece suit and a briefcase! Well, at least now I know what you look like! Thanks for posting that picture! HaarFager 08:38, October 7, 2009 (UTC)
Ha ha, you're welcome. I'm not an attorney yet, so until then, no 3-piece suits. BigBadBrad01 08:42, October 7, 2009 (UTC)

Another "Small" Request

  • Could you add a Gallery to "Corvette C6"?
  • For the persons (pretty much only designers at this time) that are entered into the database, could you enter them in the index by both their first and last name? Not all the designers are known by their first name. As things progress in this database, there may even be a need for a separate "Designer Index".

This last week I went to look up Riehlman to see what I could find to take to the Hotwheels Convention for autographs. There is no Rielhman, Phil, only a Phil Rielhman. Even the newest of collectors know Larry Wood, so I cannot use that as an example. It's no problem for us old guys, but I guessing most of the users here are of the newer collector type and will use it for reference more than me. I will be adding more information than I am looking for, and I am very happy to do so. Thanks again, Paul

Okay, I've added the Gallery to the Corvette C6 page. As far as making the designer's name more easily to find, I think it would only involve creating a page with "Rielhman, Phil," then redirecting it to the proper page. That way, whichever way a user searches for a designer, it will be easy to find. I'll try to get around to doing that tomorrow. Thanks for alerting me to these! HaarFager 22:29, October 5, 2009 (UTC)
  • The pages are already there and fine. Only additional links are needed in the Index.
  • Along the same line of thought, the '65 Mustang Fastback has been renamed Ford Mustang Fastback on the newest card.

Thanks, Paul

You said "Only additional links are needed in the Index." I'm not sure which index you mean and additional links for what and to where? If this index lists all the designers, what other links are needed. And about the new name for the '65 Mustang Fastback, the variation of the name is usually noted in the "Notes/Variations" column on the original page. Hope this helps. HaarFager 10:00, October 6, 2009 (UTC)

Hey

Could you merge Computer Warrior and Phantomachine? It's the same casting with different names. Fclass 21:29, October 2, 2009 (UTC)

I will look into and see which one should go where. Right now, I have company coming over tonight, I have to work all day tomorrow, (9 a.m. to 1 a.m.), then Sunday I watch football all day (my only day to relax!), so please don't think I've ignored this request. It's just that I don't get much computing time on the weekends. I'll have to research to see which casting came out first. Thanks for bringing this to my attention and I will do it, I promise!

We Have A Problem

Fclass is telling the new editers not to edit on this wiki and calls them vandals. please do something about fclass. Hellers4

It has been taken care of. BigBadBrad01 19:09, September 28, 2009 (UTC)
I keep telling Fclass to not worry about what others do, just have fun with it himself. Maybe these 3 days will give him time to step back from it and reflect a little. It's supposed to be about the enjoyment of Hot Wheels. Just think back when you got your first one and the great feeling you had and use that when working on the Hot Wheels Wiki. I think this is good advice for anyone. It works for me! HaarFager 20:32, September 28, 2009 (UTC)

New User Interface

Hey Kenny, What do you think of the new user interface? It tells you how many edits you have made and it tabs your user page, talk page, blog & contributions. Pretty crazy, I thought it was just an admin thing but then I saw it when I wasn't logged in. BigBadBrad01 23:21, September 23, 2009 (UTC)

Brad, I wish they would just stop already. See my comment for Rich Text Editor just below. It seems like the Hot Wheels Wiki looks different every time I open it and I seem to spend half my time always relearning everything. That can't be very productive or time effective. Who do we petition to see if they'll stop "changing/upgrading" everything all the time? HaarFager 03:22, September 24, 2009 (UTC)

2,3,4,5,6,10,20 car set category

I am sure you have enough to do without my suggestions, but you may think it would be easier down the line. The little cars have come out in a variety of sets, as a set of 2,3,4,5,6,10,or 20. Although some of us "older" guys learned, only the 5-pack was known as the Gift Pack.

The request/suggestion is to put a few more names in the category list (Browse the Hot Wheels Wiki by Letter) on the Hotwheels Home page on Wikia in a way the sets could be found/added to more easily. In the category for #, add: 2-car set, 3-car set, 4-car set, 5-car set (Gift Pack), 6-car set, 10-car set, and 20-car set.
In the category for S, add: set 2-car, set 3-car, set 4-car, set 5-car (Gift Pack), set 6-car, set 10-car, and set 20-car to link to the same pages.
In the category for G, change the Gift Pack to Gift Pack (5-pack).

In both category pages (# and S), the set names will be next to each other and easier to find. As the site becomes more popular, more members will want to share pics & info on the zillion older sets that are not 5-car Gift Packs and are unique cars.
Instead of generating the pages singly as they are requested over time, maybe you could set up a page for them and replicate for all the varieties of set sizes. This would also establish a standard for the categories of cars in sets.
By the way, when you Browse to Gift Pack (which most collectors do not recognize), it takes you to 5-Packs, which is a name that is not in the Browse area under the # category or anywhere else.
I know you will let me know what you think. Thanks, Paul.

My bad (sorry!!!)

Hey guys, this is SyndicateOfSPeed and I want to say that that I apologise for what I said! 1. I have ALWAYS joked with friends ect. about the "wienermobile" and how it looks like a P*****!, also how it would be fun to drive it through a tunnel!!! anyway, no worries!! no more slang profanity

2. The '70 Ford Gran Torino, what a beauty!!! I LOVE MUSCLE CARS!!! When I saw this car in the 10 pack at my local crappy Canadiann Wal-Mart I was super-excited! The Torino is awesome! I love how it's lowered and how it has the Louvres! so on to HW wiki and...... only available in the 10 pack..... OHHHHHHHH I was mad!

anyways, sincere apologies for the comments, especially if they offended anyone?

PS: Anyone found the '95 McLaren F1 GT-R yet?? I want one bad! BEST CAR IN THE WORLD FOR OVERALL PERFORMANCE!


PS (again) : anything to do with customs ask me!

Your Car

Holla! (I love funny openings)

Your car...

As an admin. for HW Wiki i thought, well, you would have a cool car, or an old one!

Here are some tips to make it awesome!

1.Add a 450 BHP Holley Blower AHH YEAH! 2.Add a HKS Exhaust DANG! 3.Re-Program the Comp. Chip with a SuperChips programmer VERY NICE! 4.Paint it metallic cobalt blue 5.Add a full body kit form RKsport America.

DONE! Total cost $5000 ex. (My uncle owns a garage and has a Custom 1964 Galaxie NO LIE Ill post some pics. soon)

When im old enough to drive I get my moms old '99 Nissan Altima Sport YEEEEE HAWWWWWW!

SyndicateOfSpeed - if this was message you said I hadn't responded to - I just didn't know what to say. If you've got $5,000 to give me, I can redo my car just like you suggest. But right now, I don't have the money, so it'll stay just stock. I kind of like it that way, anyway! Ha. I see where you'll be inheriting your Mother's Nissan. A hotrod Nissan - now that'll be great!

Another thing, the user Sinnin had an article that talked about things peolpe put as being "fubar" I don't know if ANY of you know what it means, but after the IM I got you should look into it!

When we have complaints about you, There will be no mistaking it. You will know. So both examples about were about someone else. As for the acronym FUBAR... Your going to have to google that. Sinnin  talk  Contributions 01:04, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

Read More feature

Kenny. You may have noticed the Read More feature at the bottom of each page. Wikia will disable this feature if requested, as long as we have a majority vote on the topic. Please visit the Read More feature page and add your vote! .... I know you like new sections at the top, but the talk topic feature places it at the bottom automatically Sinnin  talk  Contributions 09:21, February 2, 2011 (UTC)

David, I found a neat trick that works for me, so I guess I wasn't aware that the Wiki software automatically adds them at the bottom. But, what I do is to go into the top most comment to edit it, then scoot it down and add a new title with two equal signs at the beginning and end of the title, type what I have to say, then save it. It shows that it's saving a change to the old title you opened, but it ends up saving it at the top as it's own new subject. That's how I always get it at the top. If it was up to me, I would disable practically all the automatic Wiki "helpful" features such as this! I added my vote over there as well. Thanks for clueing me into that vote.

Thanks, that might be very helpful! I was just looking at a Tomica truck I have yesterday, wondering if there was a place I could look up Tomicas and see about them. HaarFager 15:56, April 15, 2011 (UTC)

inappropriate picture.

hi! i saw on user:Larry Murphy's page a VERY inappropriate picture, that has nothing to do with hotwheels. please delete it. thanks a lot! 1:64 18:29, April 23, 2011 (UTC) ok. somebody deleted it. but now there are inappropriate words. i think they are by user:DIEFLADERMAUS. they are for a good purpose, but inappropriate. thanks again! 1:64 18:59, April 23, 2011 (UTC)

Deleted! Sinnin  talk  Contributions 19:35, April 23, 2011 (UTC)
thanks, sinnin! that was not a good picture.1:64 21:50, April 23, 2011 (UTC)
Sorry I didn't get to respond to that myself! Storms have been wracking my area for over a week now, tornadoes, thunderstorms, flooding and 100 mph winds, and because of such, I have had my computer unplugged and off. Thanks, David, for taking care of this. (Although.... World Cup Babes did sound kind of interesting.... Ahem!) HaarFager 03:33, April 25, 2011 (UTC)

New test feature: Classifieds

Hi there! I'm Dopp, a member of Wikia's Community Support Team. Today we're enabling a Classifieds system on your wiki as a test feature (you'll see it in the sidebar of article pages). This is an early stage test -- we just want to see how it works -- so please bear with us for a few months while we evaluate its potential. If you love the feature (or hate it, or wish it was better), let me know! You can leave feedback on my talk page. Thanks for maintaining such a great wiki! --Dopp WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 22:20, June 7, 2011 (UTC)
