Hello, and welcome to the Hot Wheels Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the '70 Monte Carlo page.

Chances are, if you're here, you love Hot Wheels like we do. That's why we like to greet new users personally and provide a few handy suggestions to get them up to speed on how this particular wiki operates. In no time at all, you'll be helping to add to the knowledge base. And now for the tips:

  • When leaving messages on discussion pages, always finish them by typing ~~~~. This automatically adds your username to the comment so everyone will know who it came from, and when.
  • When making edits to pages, please leave a short note as to what it was you did. There is a space at the bottom of each page you're editing just for this feature. This helps the other users and the administrators so that they can know at a glance any new changes. You can see all the new changes yourself by clicking on the "recent changes" link found on the left of every page.
  • You should always try to make new pages look like the pages already created. That way, they will all look uniform and the information they contain will always be in the same place. This makes it easier on everybody to find things.
  • For information about how to do wiki-related things, check out the FAQ for more tricks.
  • If you would like tips on photographing Hot Wheels, just about anything you might need to know can be found by clicking on this link: Tips On How To Photograph Hot Wheels.

And lastly, if you have any questions or suggestions, please leave a message on my talk page and I'll see if I can help! -- Sinnin (Talk) 01:34, June 5, 2011

Enjoy the Hot Wheels Wiki!

Thank you!

You did me a great service moving the Javelin. I'm working on my editing and am a little rusty. My last two edits, Hardtop Mustang & Rennin Rig were a mess! All washed out.. I took it easy with the Javelin. Thanks again!

Thank you for your critisism on my work, its noted. 1. I am not the one putting my images on the collectors page. I have no clue or interest in doing that. I started collecting hot wheels for my nephews, this is just fun for me. I ran across the wikia site and thought it was cool there was a place for collectors, I saw the photo gallery site and thought that was cool to. However people just take pics of their hot wheels and post. Some Dark, some too light. Its rare to find a very clean pic of the cars. I take the pics of the cars myself, I bring them into Paint Shop Pro, I cut them out, getting rid of the Background, then put together a collage of that car..i.e front, side, rear. I also put the year, car name, where its under in the series and the car number in the series. Its meant to be fun and if any other collector out there wants the pics I make, they are there for the taking. I have had a few comments that were quite encouraging, yours is the first negative comment I have received. I'm sorry you find them busy, its just meant to be fun. I'm no photographer myself, but I don't think I do that bad. I also think the way I do them adds flavor. Not everyone can be pleased, but I do thank you for your input.


ZahaDoom does have a point though. By using images found on the internet and logos of car companies, the Wiki itself can actually get in trouble by having the images posted. Legally, you have to pay a licensing fee to use the logos associated to car companies (Ford, Chevy, etc). Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I like the idea behind multiple views of the car on one image, but for Wiki-sake, I think that the background is distracting. Take a look at My Profile. I have a few old images of mine on there. I used to put a frame around each of my images. I removed it, and I feel the images look much better. Again, my opinion. Here is one of my latest images for example:

Head's Up

You don't have to change "Metalflake" to "Metal-flake." Metalflake is one word, so that will save you a lot of trouble going around trying to change them all to "Metal-flake." Especially since I spend a lot of time standardizing that term on the Hot Wheels Wiki to make every instance I see read "Metalflake" instead of "Mtflk.," "Metallic," "Metalfl.," etc. "Metalflake" is the correct term, so this should save you a lot of extra time. Thanks! HaarFager 01:35, June 14, 2012 (UTC)

Prepare yourself for the backlash Kenny... I've brought this up before and here was the response I got:
"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."

It's one of those words that was made up out of two separate words, that has now entered into the common lexicon. It originates from the 1950's when it was first a trademarked name. By continual usage, it has now entered into everyday usage. Such as "Crescent Wrench." Crescent was also a trademarked name, but has also slipped into the common lexicon. Now, if anybody wants to argue the point with me, they had better be good with the English language. Because they're not gonna win a battle of words with me. I am a published author and know the English language quite well. Thanks for the head's up, Tony. Next point, people? Kenny HaarFager 02:59, June 14, 2012 (UTC)
Oh, yeah.... Shameless plug: HaarFager 02:59, June 14, 2012 (UTC)
