Careless edits

User, rodrigohot22 keeps on making careless edits and never cites sources. He has been told to stop adding unsourced cars numerous times. I'm not sure he understands. This is a test 86 (talk) 17:52, October 12, 2015 (UTC)

I don't think he knows how to do it since he mostly does Visual Editing. In order to solve this, we need to show him how to source it. UYScuti (talk) 04:03, October 13, 2015 (UTC)

New Template

Hello! I have added a new template to this wiki that I think will help admins here. You can make it by added {{Blocked|(The time they are blocked)|~~~}} to any user's talk page after blocking them, and it will tell them they are blocked. Here is what it looks like:

You have been blocked
Blocked Your user account or IP address has been blocked from editing Hot Wheels Wiki for a period of {{{1}}} for {{{2}}}.
Please note that your talk page access may be revoked.

While you are blocked, you should take your time to read over the rules.

Just Trying To Find Out What's Going On

Tony, I see there have been some edits to a user named Exotic wheels talk page and also I got an e-mail alert to say that this same user's homepage had been edited by you, but in the history of the page, there's only one edit and you're nowhere to be seen listed as having made edits to this page. I'm not blaming or accusing anyone of anything, I was just wondering what's going on? I hate it when I get e-mail alerts about something and I look for the edit for a long time and then never find the edit. It's a big waste of my time and I wonder why this happens? HaarFager (talk) 21:36, October 10, 2012 (UTC)

Hey Kenny,
No clue about that. I wound up blocking him. I blocked his access to his homepage. Maybe that triggered the email? Just a guess.

Deleting Your Photos?

Bro, why do you keep deleting my photos? whats the deal?

I was reverting files that you had overwritten with your uploads. When uploading, please use filenames that pertain to the image. Things like IMG4586.jpg or File:017.jpg don't cut it. By using specific file naming convention, this sort of this will not happen. Also, if an image that was uploaded is similar to something already existing here and is not being used, it will be deleted. There is no reason to have it taking up space. You may want to resize your images as well. 4,288 x 3,216 is a huge image. There's no reason for them to be that dimension here. It just takes up space.

Images - SFXMan 45

Tszuta,

I did see your post to me, I understand your concern so I will no longer upload any more cars with the logo's on. Its kinda a moot point anyway since the cars themselves have the logo's on them anyway, most anyway. I did look at your page, in my opinion, you should go back to adding frames, they looked better. I personally have fun adding some finesse to the pics of my cars, in the process of doing so, I also clean up the pics, I am no photographer. I am however an artist, and like to be creative. I'm not the only one either, whoever uploaded the pic of the Troy Soldier obviously wanted to add to the showcasing of their car as well. To me, that shows pride.

I did not join this site to cause any problems, but I'm also not one to put up with pompeous jerks either, like Mr. baha whats his name. Your the Administrator, and you seem like a nice guy, I'm just here to showcase my cars. If that is a problem just let me know and i will move on, no harm done.

Dan

Hi Dan. You are not causing any problems here. I for one appreciate your work. It's original. The most important part is that it's yours. The images of the cars alone are great. I don't think that Zahadoom crossed any boundaries with what was said, so I am in no place to repremand him about it. Some people have tact while well, others lack it. I guess that's all I can say about that. Your images show multiple views of said casting, so I see for no reason to show them on pages. There are other administrators here as well, so we can see what their thoughts are as well. My biggest concern was the use of trademarks (logos) and it sounds as if you understand that. Keep up what you are doing Dan.
Tszuta | Talk 19:22, January 1, 2012 (UTC)

Glad you like my pics Tszuta. I didn't want anyone reprimanded anyway, I just didn't like the way the guy messaged me, but hey its a free country, if he is in America, Tackfulness is not a requirement. I still think you should go back to framing your pics at least. The ones on your profile are great, and the frames around the cars make them stand out more. I love that Chevelle SS orange, and the stage coach. I collect hot wheels for 4 boys. When I started this at the end of 2010, it got frustrating trying to remember who had what, more so when I got home and discovered I had way more then I needed. I created a check list in microsoft office using Excel, resized that into a smaller back pocket size booklet kind of, this way I could know who had what when I was out HW hunting. Wikia was a fantastic help for me, so I am glad its here. Thanks


Tszuta,

I have info on the Gold Plated GMC Motorhome however I don't know how to put the information on the the page in the formatted columns. I even took pics of the one in my collection with the intentions of sharing with the rest of the collecting community but computers really aren't my thing.

LOL, ok I'm getting confused. I stopped with the logo's so as not to cause any problem's, but now you want me to go back to my way?! Thats cool, I was saving them to my computer my old way anyway. I liked it better. I'm not replacing anyone's pics with mine, I'm just uploading to the gallery, if I'm doing something wrong, please tell me. The Spectyte was a car I got in a box of old HW's I have just recently gotton a hold of. Mostly 2004 stuff, a few exclusive to McDonald's only. I uploaded that in the gallery, is that replacing someone's pics? Also, I'm not sure what you mean by the SFXMan45 03:10, January 8, 2012 (UTC)signature thing

SFXMan45 03:10, January 8, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks Tszuta for your comments. I didn't think it was WikiWomans message, it just didn't make sense and shes always well spoken. I uploaded more pics after I read that anyway and working on more. Thanks again

Thanks for the thanks

I really love being on this wikia. It is so much more fun than just collecting Hot Wheels. Making sure to update, and see what others are finding. I always like to learn new things, and being able to learn how the wikia language works, and all the back door ways of working the source. Too much fun. I have to look at it daily to see what is up.

Latest Edits - Guru111111

can you check whether my latest edits are correct please ?

The edits you made to the gallery on the McLaren F1 GTR page look good. I see that in the table though you have inserted a thumbnail image. In order to remove this, you must edit the page and look at the source code. Within the code, you will see that your line reads 'File:Mclaren_f1_.jpg|thumb|102px'. It's close, but not right. If you change it to 'File:Mclaren_f1_.jpg|75px', you will be good to go. I appreciate you asking how to correctly add an item to a page. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. Also, when posting on a talk page, please end your comment with 4 of these (tilde) -> ~ That will automatically add your name to the end of the post.

Thanks for the help the page will definitely look better. :D

Your revisions

I'd just like to note your revisions are reverting the pages page to a format where the image no longer shows on how the wiki is set up currently. There is no such word as Metalflake in the dictionary, the correct word is Metal-flake, which helps the auto formatting nature of the forms. There were also other minor changed to formatting in those edit that you just undid. Also I if your unhappy with the shorting of Unpainted, which I only used because it was already ALL OVER THE SITE, I suggest that the Unpainted nature of metal bases just be removed then, since its a huge word which lengthens the lenght of an otherwise short column, and castings who's base was a painted colour of metal is already noted.

Hi There Tszuta

im new here at hotwheels.wikia.com .. kinda fun to see a lot of info for my hobby, i saw a post about that poison arrow and i have the picture for the superman 2 pac (L1771)... i already add it to the post, sorry if it a lil bit dark and not in a perfect size..maybe you can gift me some kind of tips or direction how to fix it...thanks

PS. I also have a lot of HW pictures from my collection, going to add it to the posts and the galeries, if it is ok..


Hi Tony,

I would like to report a user, Beto67 that is apparently taking photos from other users and reposting them as his, and later posting them in the gallery of the car's page (i.e. Shelby GT500 Super Snake). He's actually not replacing the original photos, but adding them again at the bottom.

I'm sure he doesn't mean any harm. Probably just doesn't know how to re-post a previously existing photo, but it would be good if you or other admin could give him some orientation regarding this.

Thanks a lot for your help,

thanks Toni to blockade "Rose64".

I said it to kenny, but "Rose64" stageletters the messages.

all editions of "Rose64" (over 1000) are mainly linked to the SEARCH. & eliminations pages.

Apology for Images

Tszuta, 

I apologize for my action of uploading images that are not mine, sorry for violating the guidelines and rules. I just want to make the website look great, but since I went too far trying to make it look good, I started making the website look better byt adding images. I am kind of new to this wiki editing. I will try my best to make sure it doesn't happen again. I am not an adult yet, but I still love to edit. The reason why i love to edit is because it benefits me having fun editing and it benefits the website looking better. I have to be careful this time because this is my second strike. Please accept my apology and what I have done wrong to this website

UYScuti (talk) 23:18, November 19, 2013 (UTC)

2 Things for editing

1) Images

How do you get special privileges/permission from others to use the image? Do you just ask them?

2) 2 Different Codes (Toy Number)

I noticed that the Prototype H-24 and other cars has 2 different codes. The Prototype H-24 has the code "BFC72" and "BFF43". Should I use both of them or should I choose one and stick with it?

UYScuti (talk) 02:13, November 20, 2013 (UTC)

I've modified my photos.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

I am not Miguelalegira, I am a 10 year-old boy. I never knew taking pictures off the Internet was illegal but I get most of my pictures off my Twitter page. I'll start using HW Wiki on my phone to upload pictures if I can. Now I know what the consequences are about "illegal" internet activity and I'll keep watch of what I do. Daniel7196

Removing images

Are you not aware that only admins can actually delete photos?

That's why there are so many unused photos.

Kenny must have hired and trained you! You mimick his attitude most perfectly!!!
69 Chevy | 69 Chevy 02:09, January 30, 2014 (UTC)
Based on some of your past comments, I believe you are the one with the attitude. Look at how you started the conversation - "Are you not aware". How did you expect things to go after that? I'm a nice guy but I'm not going to put up with someones $!&# either especially a place in which my time is volunteered.
Wheel icon Tszuta Talk Wheel icon 18:11, January 30, 2014 (UTC)
You may very well be better than kenny! Kudos for kenny training you to be worse! 
You instructed a very young user to just remove the photos. An average intellect individual, I would think, would think that meant removing them from the wiki, which MEANS deleting - I seriously did not think you would be dumb enough to instruct a user to do something he could not do. kerplunk!

Unverified Information

We have a little disputation here about the last super. Just to let you know, the last super has been confirmed. But how can I show evidence so you could believe that this is the one that will be the last super. Will there be consequences if I am wrong? UYScuti (talk) 04:54, June 24, 2014 (UTC)

We try to keep the HW-Wiki filled with fact-based information. If you could post a link to the data you have, I will certainly review it. I'm willing to work with you. I just want to be sure what's being added is correct.

Wheel icon Tszuta Talk Wheel icon 12:16, June 24, 2014 (UTC)

I have the evidence with me, but it is from Ebay. The first Harley Davidson has the original colors (light blue) and the second one has spectraflame blue paint with rubber tires. But one thing is that there is no tampos on both of them, but I do believe it is the one because it's from Malaysia. When I double check on the HW Harley Davidson page (Harley-Davidson Fat Boy), there is no car with a blue body. http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Hot-Wheels-Prototype-Unspun-Unrivet-Harley-Davidson-Fat-Boy-Blue-No-Tampo-/171347554403?pt=Diecast_Vehicles&hash=item27e51c3063&_uhb=1 (For the original type) http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Hot-Wheels-Prototype-Unspun-Harley-Davidson-Fat-Boy-No-Tampo-Rubber-Wheels-/171364925341?pt=Diecast_Vehicles&hash=item27e6253f9d&_uhb=1 (The super with spectraflame paint and rubber tires)

Images response & 2 questions

Theholmboy (talk) 18:25, Feb. 4, 2015 (UTC)

Regarding the image warning: Thanks for letting me know and please excuse me... Sometimes my OCD / Completionist tendencies overtake me ;) Yes, I have done this in a few cases and will stop the practice immediately. At other times, I downloaded an existing image to optimize it (e.g. improve the brightness/contrast, crop extraneous background, etc.) and then uploaded the file with the same name to replace the old file. I kept the same name for the purpose of storage space conservation and not for the intent to get credit for someone else's picture (in many cases I credited the original uploader in the notes). If there is a better way to do this (as a non-admin) please let me know... When replacing an existing picture with a different/better picture that I took, I have done my best to maintain those pictures by putting them in the gallery. Overall, my intent was good here and almost all of the pictures I have uploaded were taken by me with my camera.

Two questions... 1. Does that policy extend to the picture in the header? Sometimes the header picture has the conceptual art version of a car or the "3D art" version (like those found on hotwheels.com or the artwork on the blue cards). I think it gives the page a nice, finished look, but wanted to know the policy.

2. On some pages, I have been seeing | abp="x" found at the beginning of every line of code, with x being a number which iterates on each subsequent line? Growler is one that has the code, if you don't know what I am referring to... Does it serve some purpose? Can/should it be removed? Searching this site and a general google search produced nothing...

Thanks for your assistance!!

Images response & re-posting of question from February

--Theholmboy (talk) 12:54, June 9, 2015 (UTC)
I went through the last several hundred of my uploaded images and replaced a few that seemed like they may fit the vague image rule: Do not upload images that are not your own. If, after that, there are images remaining that appear to not be my own, please give me specific examples and I will address them.
Notes:
-All images uploaded on 6/8/15 were for the page I just finished for Team Hot Wheels: The Origin of Awesome and were either taken by me with my camera or were unique screen captures I took directly from the video. Comparing it to the similar, existing page Highway 35 World Race (which doesn't appear to me to have hardly any "user owned and/or generated" images), the Origin of Awesome page is completely compliant.
-I left all .png files that I had uploaded intact (e.g. the "3D" graphics, generally used in page headers). Because they are widely uploaded by even Admins, I cannot figure your warnings apply to those.
-As you can see in my Talk section, your rather curt warning came on the heels of a discussion I was having with Nerdo921 about this issue and about the vague nature of the image rules. You could learn a few things from his tactful approach ;) (Honey vs. vinegar) If you just want me to leave, please say so... I could easily spend the time creating my own pages, but would prefer to contribute to something bigger.

Question from February Re-Post: On some pages, I have been seeing | abp="x" found at the beginning of every line of code, with x being a number which iterates on each subsequent line. Growler is one that has the code, if you don't know what I am referring to... Does it serve some purpose? Can/should it be removed? Searching this site and a general google search produced nothing.

Thanks again!
