Thumbnail Coding In Tables Edit

I've warned you before about using thumbnail coding in the tables and you never responded. I notice you just did it again yesterday on the Truck Camper page. That's why you're being blocked for a month. Kenny HaarFager (talk) 06:22, April 19, 2016 (UTC)

Spurious Gallery Coding Edit

Do not add extra coding to the Gallery coding. It is fine like it is. Also, do not undo one of my edits because that will get you banned for a while the next time you do it. Kenny HaarFager (talk) 21:43, February 12, 2016 (UTC)

Thumbnail Coding Edit

Please remove all the thumbnail coding from the table on the Matchbox Wheel Types page you added. It does not belong there. Kenny HaarFager (talk) 23:17, September 22, 2015 (UTC)

Editing Edit

I noticed you made some changes to the Armored Response Vehicle‎‎ page. After you had made the edits, didn't you notice that the table was screwed up? The reason was because you used thumbnail coding in the table. You're not supposed to use thumbnail coding in the table. Didn't you notice that none of the other images in the table didn't have thumbnail coding? Please try to be more careful and make edits like they're supposed to be. It's fine that you want to help here at the Matchbox Cars Wiki, but if I have to go around and fix all these mistakes, it takes away from my enjoyment and time to do what I want to do. Please try to be more careful when making edits and make sure they conform with the standards already employed here. Thank you. Kenny HaarFager (talk) 11:21, July 26, 2014 (UTC)

WelcomeEdit

Hi, welcome to Matchbox Cars Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the List of 2002 Matchbox page.

If you need help, and there are no local admins here, you may want to visit the forums on the Community Central Wiki. You can also check our Staff blog to keep up-to-date with the latest news and events around Wikia.

Happy editing, Sarah Manley@fandom (help forum | blog)



Hey, not sure why you're changing the Ford Box Truck photo back on the 1999 Matchbox page, I already had one, it's a better representation, and you don't edit out "posted by" image. RazoE 16:00, September 8, 2011 (UTC)

The Classic Car Wiki Edit

Hey, I was wondering if you wanted to come and help out at my wiki. Heres a link: http://classiccars.wikia.com/

If you have any questions, feel free to leave them on my talk page or find me on chat :)

Images Edit

Great new photos you've posted. The Buick looks particularly nice - I can't wait to see it in the store. I do notice that you haven't included copyright info on the images, though - it's easiest done when uploading the image - click More options on the upload screen, then select the appropriate license from the drop-down list. Unfortunately, you can't do this when adding images from an article's editor.

If you forget to add the copyright notice when you add the image, or if you upload an image from an article's editor, you can always go back - open the image's page in the editor, then add {{Self}} to the page; this will generate

This file was uploaded by the photographer or author.

on the page. Not sure of the coding for other licenses, but I can figure it out if you need to know. Best, --Badger16 (talk) 15:30, July 25, 2012 (UTC)

HiEdit

Hey good constuctive edits! Someone should make a Model Car Wikia or something...

Just an idea

Join this WikiEdit

Hey Hepcik, Nice to meet you, you seem you know alot about Diecast and Matchbox cars. I was wondering if you wanted to join a wiki about every single diecast car from every single manufactuerer. This wiki will be looking at every scale from 1:43 to 1:76. So if you do, just reply or contact me, 

Many Thanks

Matchbox 2016 bp29 question Edit

Hi, I noticed that you added the Karmann Ghia bp29 to the 2016 Matchbox page.


You have it listed as casting 861 which has to be wrong (it is the Sand Shredder).  It is probably casting 883 but I don't know for sure because I don't have one of these yet.  Otherwise I'd edit it myself but I don't do that without confirmation that I'm right (or not).

Some help needed! Edit

IP address 120.148.172.85 has screwed up the layout of the List of 2018 Matchbox page. Please block that IP and fix that page.

Ahoj, jak jsi viděl, chtěl bych přidat na stránky svoje Áčka, editaci nějak neumím. Pomůžeš? Po mnoha letech jsem se vrátil k Matchboxům, sice jsem sbírku rozšiřoval, ale jen do krabic pod postel. Teď jsem sbírku vyndal a vystavil pro svoje potěšeni doma do vitrínek. Wikii sleduji a chtěl bych rozšířit databázi o svoje modely.

Good morningEdit

I have one Porsche 911 GT1 like the one you have in your photo with the 8 GT1's.

The one I have is the silver one with the black parts and a round black steacher on the door. I'm having difficults to catalogue the car as I bought it without box or blister.

Can you help me with details as I can't find it anywhere. Better reply by email as I don't know if this works

Please consider blocking this vandal. Thanks! ~TheGoldenPatrik1 (Talk) 17:58, September 2, 2018 (UTC)

Categories needing renaming Edit

I have created a category "Categories needing renaming" and have allocated it to the Category "Jimmey Neutron". As I understand it, "Jimmey Neutron" should be "Jimmy Neutron".

Are you able to rename this or should I seek help over at FANDOM Help? Ford GT40 (talk) 05:43, November 2, 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for responding over at My Talk Page Ford GT40 (talk) 02:28, November 8, 2018 (UTC)

There is a vandal on the loose Edit

Would you please block IP address 70.55.183.62? He has removed some of the pictures from List of 2018 Matchbox. Sticky Keys XP (talk) 00:25, December 9, 2018 (UTC)

Images Needing Renaming Edit

Hi Hepcik,

We now have 87 images in the category "Images Needing Renaming" which can be found here [1]. I would like to help give each of these a meaningful name, but I am not empowered to do so. Can you help in any way regarding this please? Ford GT40 (talk) 05:06, February 1, 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for your response over on my Talk page. I have followed up with our friends over at Fandom Help and their answer to our problem is:

" Go to the image you want to rename. In the edit drop down, there should be an option to rename. Specify the new file name leaving the create redirect box checked, otherwise you will have to rename the image on every page it's used on."

Please let me know how you go. Thanks, Ford GT40 (talk) 08:58, February 11, 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for your feedback on my talk page. I'm glad that it worked. May I suggest that once an image has been suitably renamed, the Category "Images Needing Renaming" shoud be deleted from the renamed file. That way the page Category "Images Needing Renaming" will only show the images that still need to be renamed. I am happy to help with the renaming of files if you would like me to. Ford GT40 (talk) 05:33, March 4, 2019 (UTC)

As the renaming of the images in this category seems to be too much work for one person I would like to offer to help. Of course I can only do this if I can be given higher access, at least whilst I work on the renaming. Would you be happy with this? I have taken the liberty of asking about the mechanics of this over at Fandom help. The answer I was given was as follows:

You need to be an admin, however only a bureaucrat can grant admin rights. If there isn't an active bureaucrat, see if the admin is happy to apply for bureaucrat rights, by adopting the site, or happy for you to do so. If there are other active contributors, you may have to write a blog post.

Here is a link to the discussion. [2]

2019 Power Grabs Model Numbering Edit

You may wish to comment on my proposal at Talk: Power Grabs Matchbox 2019. Ford GT40 (talk) 03:51, September 8, 2019 (UTC)

I've Just added a couple new models I picked up at Target. I do not know how to add the links of the models. If you could educate me on how to do this in the future if I have some edits I can accomplish this.

Images of real vehicles Edit

Images of real vehicles have been added to certain pages recently. Do we have a policy on this please? Personally I don't think we need them. There are millions of images of the real vehicles on the internet already and these add more clutter to overpopulated images galleries on certain pages. Ford GT40 (talk) 07:36, January 11, 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for your response to this on my talk page. May I suggest that a message be left on the talk page of the user responsible, by an Admin such as yourself, requesting that this practice should cease. Ford GT40 (talk) 09:18, February 7, 2020 (UTC)

Categories under "Years"Edit

We have a Category titled "Years" under which we have numerous categories titled "1953" through "2020". (Please see here.) Each of these has only one category under it, "1953 Matchbox" through "2020 Matchbox". Each of these categories in turn sit under the category "Matchbox by Year". It sees to me that "1953" through "2020" are redundant as they add nothing to the database and if anything only lead to confusion. What do you think about us deleting these "Years" and only having the "1953 Matchbox" through "2020 Matchbox"? I would be happy to remove these from the category tree if you agree. Of course action would need to be taken afterwards to actually delete them from the database. Ford GT40 (talk) 05:35, March 10, 2020 (UTC)

See reply of 13/3/2020 here. Ford GT40 (talk) 09:29, March 16, 2020 (UTC)

I'm a contributor of the Hot Wheels Wiki and that wiki have the "Years" categories. I'm trying to do the same with this wiki to match with the Hot Wheels Wiki. I didn't made the Years template myself. So go ahead and delete them if you disagree about the Year categories to avoid similarities with the Hot Wheels Wiki. Combatbot2015 (talk) 00:27, March 12, 2020 (UTC)

Hepcik,

I believe that we no longer have any categories like "1961" linked with any categories like "1961 Matchbox". I think all that remains is for some "1961" style categories to be deleted. They can be seen here. I'm not sure why the "Candidates for deletion" category itself has been deleted. I believe that it should still be active.

May I suggest that you put any reply here so that all of the talk on this matter is kept together on one page. Ford GT40 (talk) 07:32, March 16, 2020 (UTC)

Wrangler Cars category Edit

Hi Hepcik,

Would you please see my comment to Combatbot2015 re the Wrangler Cars category. You may wish to add a comment there yourself.

I hope you are well.

Ford GT40 (talk) 03:13, March 28, 2020 (UTC)

You may wish to add your thoughts to the discussion over on my talk page re "Categories". Cheers, Ford GT40 (talk) 06:41, April 1, 2020 (UTC)

Hi,

Great work you goys did assembling all this information.

I´m just aving lots of fun remembering good times.

There is few I can do to help, but always I find something useful I´ll try to contribute.

Cheers,

How Can We Help?Edit

Hi, I'm Tim, one of the Fandom staff team. We've been looking at some of the wikis that are currently categorised as "Lifestyle". We would like to move away from lumping together so many varied wikis, and give them a more accurate category.  In your case, we have classified this wiki as "Collectibles".

The hope is that with wikis grouped into smaller more focused groups, we can give better and more personalised support. For example, we can give help with wiki design, advice on search engine optimization, and generally just be around for any questions and other needs you have.

We have a short survey that will help us understand what your needs are, and where we can best focus to help you keep building your wiki. I hope you'll participate and let us know what you need.

I'll be your primary contact, with the rest of the Exploration and Innovation Team ready to jump in and help where we can. I look forward to working with you! And if you have any questions, please let me know! --TimmyQuivy@fandom (help forum | blog) 19:57, April 14, 2020 (UTC)

Vehicle History & Technical SpecsEdit

Hi Hepcik,

In addition to the issue which I have previousy raised with you re "Images of real vehicles", I now find that we have information being added to pages relating to Vehicle History & Technical Specs, e.g. at Range Rover Sport (2005). I believe that this sort of information relating to real vehicles is way beyond the scope of this wiki. I feel that we should be focused on the Matchbox models rather than the real vehicles as the latter are well covered on many websites, most notably Wikipedia. I feel that, as with images of real vehicles, this has the potential to get out of hand and may well distract from the information that we should be focused on, i.e. the Matchbox models. What do you think please?

Ford GT40 (talk) 06:47, April 23, 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for your reply on my Talk page Ford GT40 (talk) 10:18, April 27, 2020 (UTC)

Candidates for deletionEdit

Hi Hepcik,

We have 18 categories, 8 pages and 40 images classified under the category "Candidates for deletion". It would be great if we could clear some or all of these out of the database so that they cannot be used in future, especially the images of real life vehicles.

Is there any chance that you can look at this at some point. As always, I am happy to help with this as required.

Ford GT40 (talk) 04:01, May 9, 2020 (UTC)

Matchbox Carrying Cases Edit

Hepcik,

I have an interst in the Matchbox Carrying cases and have begun to catologue information and wondered if it is something that would have a place in the Wiki. A majority of the information in this example is from Christian Falkensteiner website and I do not wish to take credit for it, but to use it more as a stepping off point for my research. I have compulated data ito include the 12 car case (Below), 18, 24, 48 and 72 car cases. I do know there is a case wiki but it is limited in information. If there is interest in this iformation please let me know.

Models of Yesteryear duplicationEdit

Hi Hepcik,

You may like to add your thoughts to my comment on the Talk page for Models of Yesteryear.

Regards Ford GT40 (talk) 23:29, June 7, 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for your feedback on my talk page. If you agree that we should not be duplicating the MoY model page information (e.g. Allchin 7 NHP Traction Engine (Y-1)) on the Models of Yesteryear page, it would be helpful if you could add you thoughts to Information duplication. Ford GT40 (talk) 03:42, June 13, 2020 (UTC)


Hi Hepcik,

I just uploaded my own image in the Matchbox Cars section of the Lexus brand, model GS430, Superfast range year 2008, but there is an image with the following message: "Image Not Available", do I need it if you can delete it please? Beforehand thank you very much!!

Hi Hepcik,

I just added 5 images in the section "List of 5-packs 2020", subsection "City Adeventure II", kindly you need to delete the images with text "Image not available".

Thank you very much and have a nice day!
