Hey Rayous .Thanks for finishing my Up! Citigo and Mii pages.Looks good thanks but say you coulda kept the Mii and Citigo photos please see ya-- Carman39 October 25 2011 (UTC)

Reviews[edit source]

All model review pages from wikicars have been copied over. What's next?-Hockeyben 01:05, September 27, 2011 (UTC)

For me, fixing up the screwed up categories, and the missing images. --Rayous 01:54, September 27, 2011 (UTC)
The missing jeep images for me.-Hockeyben 02:03, September 27, 2011 (UTC)

Message wall[edit source]

Looks AWFUL. Hockeyben  03:43, September 28, 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I know. --Rayous♠ 04:02, September 28, 2011 (UTC)
I don't understand why wikia wants to do this. All experiences users have zero problems with talk pages, they have been used without fuss on wikipedia for over 10 years. Plus, talk pages are used to directly discuss things regarding the wiki, not a message board for random discussions. Hockeyben  04:11, September 28, 2011 (UTC)
It doesn't matter. Wikia wasn't afraid to force Wikians to eat their crap Oasis skin. So nothing's going stop them from changing Wikia into Facebook. --Rayous♠ 05:56, September 28, 2011 (UTC)
I guess I will start to sound like a Wikia-fanboy, but why does it look awful to you? Imo it actually looks more userfriendly. You don't have to use -Zantam03 (Talk) at the end anymore and everyone can easily see who posted which message. It's basically the same as the Comments on the bottom of articles. For a talk-page this works really well I think... ---Zantam03 (Talk) 06:31, September 28, 2011 (UTC)
Okay, but this is how much people who don't want it. --Rayous♠ 06:50, September 28, 2011 (UTC)
Yea but I'm asking you why you don't like it. I don't care about that list. I don't need it to form an opinion. I don't like or dislike something because there's a list of people who like or dislike it. I like the new talkpage because it's more userfriendly... no more :::::: or ~~ or whatever. Those people in that list are probably people who also did not want Wikia to switch to Monaco and they will never accept ANY form of change. ---Zantam03 (Talk) 08:05, September 28, 2011 (UTC)
Wikis have talk pages and signatures. When Wikia replaces it with a "wall", it becomes a social networking site, not a wiki anymore. --Rayous♠ 08:08, September 28, 2011 (UTC)
In essence nothing changes; you're talking, but in the future this will be slightly easier and the talkpage will look more clear. Wikis will never look like a social networking site, because a talkpage is still something that happens "behind the scenes". ---Zantam03 (Talk) 10:31, September 28, 2011 (UTC)
I hope you're right because about 98% percent of the community do not like this new feature. --Rayous♠ 10:35, September 28, 2011 (UTC)
Most people who come here are still regular, unregistered visitors. 99% percent of those have and will never see your talkpage. By making the talkpage more clear and easier to use Wikia hopes to encourage teamwork for the Wiki. If people want to call that "Facebook-ish" then go ahead, but I don't see how it does and I'm actually looking forward to the message wall. Never really liked the :::::: and ~~~~ or.... people forgetting to use those. ---Zantam03 (Talk) 10:41, September 28, 2011 (UTC)
And I believe people who don't mind or find this feature "ok" will not bother to share their opinion, so that list is incomplete I'm sure and does not truly represent the Wikians opinion. ---Zantam03 (Talk) 10:46, September 28, 2011 (UTC)

Jeep images[edit source]

I'll do the Jeep images, so don't bother uploading any of those. --Hockeyben  15:34, September 28, 2011 (UTC)

Come on chat. --Hockeyben  15:41, September 28, 2011 (UTC)

You joined then left. --Rayous♠ 15:51, September 28, 2011 (UTC)
You didn't respond to my messages, I'll come back on. --Hockeyben  15:58, September 28, 2011 (UTC)
Oh, sorry I wasn't using private chat. But I gotta sleep bye --Rayous♠ 16:00, September 28, 2011 (UTC)
We can talk later then. --Hockeyben  16:01, September 28, 2011 (UTC)

Auto racing[edit source]

I have expanded/created a number of auto racing pages, including NASCAR and various other championships. All F1 seasons and race tracks have articles, and all main NASCAR races also have articles. --Hockeyben  14:28, October 1, 2011 (UTC)

Skin[edit source]

I've tweaked the skin. What do you think?--Hockeyben  17:26, October 1, 2011 (UTC)

I like the white skin better. --Rayous 01:17, October 2, 2011 (UTC)
Okay. I'll revert to Zantam's version.Hockeyben  01:19, October 2, 2011 (UTC)

So. We'll just keep the white skin. I like the fact that it doesn't look to "busy". I sorta liked the gray one, though. Hockeyben  01:27, October 2, 2011 (UTC)

We should start a Autopedia:Categories page, to help us organize the disastrous cats. I remember we had something like that on Shoutwiki. --Hockeyben  15:14, October 2, 2011 (UTC)

Hmm.. I think I have to change the main page design, fix the categories, upload images, retrieve the deleted Koenigsegg articles, and update car blogs. That's the last thing I need to do on my list. --Rayous 15:16, October 2, 2011 (UTC)
Okay then. What are you planning for the main page? I sorta liked the sw one. I think the skin is fine, and should be kept, though. --Hockeyben  15:18, October 2, 2011 (UTC)PS I can copy the article text for Koenigsegg from Wikipedia, and use the wikicars layout. So you don't need to. --Hockeyben  15:19, October 2, 2011 (UTC)
Well, I'm not in a good mood lately because I was banned from Community Chat. I was gonna do the main page later, but I've lost the motivation to do it. --Rayous 15:21, October 2, 2011 (UTC)
What happened on community chat? --Hockeyben  15:21, October 2, 2011 (UTC)
Does it matter? --Rayous 15:23, October 2, 2011 (UTC)
If you dont wanna say, that's fine. --Hockeyben  15:25, October 2, 2011 (UTC)
I'm just not in a good mood right now. Sorta depressed. --Rayous 15:27, October 2, 2011 (UTC)

I think people have already forgotten what happened back then. Besides, those conflicts were made under Knightrez. You're Rayous now... ---Zantam03 (Talk) 17:25, October 2, 2011 (UTC)

Motorsport[edit source]

I'm focusing my attention on Motorsport articles at the moment .--Hockeyben  15:33, October 2, 2011 (UTC)

Ok. --Rayous 15:36, October 2, 2011 (UTC)

8K[edit source]

8,000 articles!!! Another milestone! The motorsport articles are done for now, as wellHockeyben  01:21, October 3, 2011 (UTC)

RE[edit source]

Hey. I saw your message about retiring if rm doesn't come back. I contacted him on wikipedia, and received a reply, basically stating he's currently too busy IRL to have time for ap. Which basically means the car blogs are screwed. What does this mean for your future with the site? After all that autopedia has rebounded from, I would hate to see it become a deserted wiki, and I will help out when time permits if there are other members of the community also willing to work. Hockeyben  03:53, October 5, 2011 (UTC)

Recently, I've lost my addiction to wiki editing. But I'll make a few edits later. --Rayous 05:42, October 5, 2011 (UTC)
Sometimes, I lose interest in wikis, and want to quit, but after taking a few days (or weeks) off, I generally feel motivated again. --Hockeyben  14:02, October 5, 2011 (UTC)

Community portal[edit source]

Hey. I posted some thoughts on Autopedia:Community Portal. Could use your insight on my thoughts there.Hockeyben  02:01, October 6, 2011 (UTC)

Other wikis[edit source]

Are there any other wikis your into editing at the moment?Hockeyben  02:14, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

Nope. All my concentration is here. --Rayous 02:16, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
Same, right now just here and sometimes wikipedia. That'll change when shout comes back, and my attention will be more over there. I have a rough idea on what we missed with the car blogs, and will be updating some stuff tomorrow.Hockeyben  02:20, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
I finally got my wiki addiction back. --Rayous 02:22, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
Good that your motivated again. The major auto shows we miss are Geneva, Chicago, and New York. I'll mainly be doing articles on the models unveiled, not small updates.Hockeyben  02:26, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia has a handy category for cars released in 2011 See here, I should be able to do this rather easily.Hockeyben  02:29, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

Okay, great. --Rayous 02:31, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
can you help with the car updates? Just use wikipedia.Hockeyben  02:38, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
Well, I'm quite busy at the moment. --Rayous 02:39, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
Okay, but the updates will be a lot of work, but not as bad as I imagined.Hockeyben  02:41, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
Should I disable comments? What do ya think? --Rayous 02:45, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
If we can use ex: Talk:Jeep, then yes. Especially after those spam comments a few weeks ago.Hockeyben  02:48, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
I just disabled it. Talk:Jeep --Rayous 02:50, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

Good, I never liked comments. Hockeyben  02:52, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

Updating the Detroit Auto Show starts now. --Hockeyben  15:02, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

Roger that. --Rayous 15:07, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

Okay, Detroit is done. But it was the easiest, which is why I did it first. --Hockeyben  15:34, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

Chicago is also done, on to Geneva now. --Hockeyben  15:46, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

Break[edit source]

I'm taking a break from autopedia for a few days. I've lost some motivation in editing. Plus, I've got some stuff I gotta do on wikipedia. Don't worry, I'll still be editing here everyday, just not quite so massively.Hockeyben  01:08, October 9, 2011 (UTC)

Nah, Bulldozer isn't gonna help out. As you can see, he's ignoring me and the question on why he has car articles there. Quite frankly, I don't like his shit copy/pasted articles. --Rayous 01:38, October 9, 2011 (UTC)
What does that have to do with me taking a break? But no, he's not gonna help. I like our car articles better, too.Hockeyben  02:11, October 9, 2011 (UTC)
Ok, see you around. --Rayous 02:14, October 9, 2011 (UTC)
I'll still be editing, just more like 20-30 edits a day.Hockeyben  02:20, October 9, 2011 (UTC)

Let's talk on chat.Hockeyben  02:27, October 9, 2011 (UTC)

Don't help out Bulldozer. I take it as an insult for ignoring my question and not replying to my nice offer. --Rayous 04:32, October 9, 2011 (UTC)

Come on chat. I've Got a few minutes to talk.Hockeyben 

Come on chat. I'll be online for ~ 5 minutes. --Hockeyben  01:13, October 12, 2011 (UTC)

I gotta go. We can talk later. --Hockeyben  01:16, October 12, 2011 (UTC)

Let's talk now. --Hockeyben  14:49, October 12, 2011 (UTC)

Scratch that. I can't connect to chat. --Hockeyben  14:52, October 12, 2011 (UTC)

I can't connect either. --Rayous 14:59, October 12, 2011 (UTC)

Jeep[edit source]

I'm currently uploading the missing jeep images. --Hockeyben  15:08, October 12, 2011 (UTC)

Jeep images are all uploaded!! --Hockeyben  15:37, October 12, 2011 (UTC)

I'm able to connect to chat. Let's talk now. --Hockeyben  15:48, October 12, 2011 (UTC)

I got a few thing to say. Come on chat for a few minutes.Hockeyben  13:41, October 14, 2011 (UTC)

It disconnected me from chat. Weird. --Rayous 13:51, October 14, 2011 (UTC)
Same here. Let's try again. --Hockeyben  13:52, October 14, 2011 (UTC)

Tuatara[edit source]

I just saw the pics you added on the SSC Tuatara page. Sweet looking car!! If your wondering, I'm currently busy, but I should be able to upload the Koenigsegg CCX pics within a day or two. --Hockeyben  15:08, October 16, 2011 (UTC)

Come on chat.--Hockeyben  13:07, October 17, 2011 (UTC)

Archive[edit source]

Did you manage to retrieve the SSC Aero from archive.org? --Hockeyben  16:03, October 17, 2011 (UTC)

User:Rayous/Sandbox --Rayous 02:06, October 18, 2011 (UTC)

infobox[edit source]

The new infobox works. Looks great!!--Hockeyben  17:16, October 17, 2011 (UTC)

Not bad. --Rayous 02:05, October 18, 2011 (UTC)

Let's talk on chat for a few minutes.Hockeyben  02:21, October 18, 2011 (UTC)

I'm back on chat. :) Hockeyben  02:42, October 18, 2011 (UTC)

You left again. --Rayous 02:43, October 18, 2011 (UTC)

My browser crashed I'm back now.Hockeyben  02:50, October 18, 2011 (UTC)

What happened to the new infobox? btw, I've moved the SSC Aero from your sandbox to the main article. --Hockeyben  14:23, October 18, 2011 (UTC)

I remember RM removed it before. It doesn't suit the classic cars and vintage cars. --Rayous 14:41, October 18, 2011 (UTC)
Ok. So we'll just stick with what we currently have. --Hockeyben  14:46, October 18, 2011 (UTC)

Come on chat when you're back on. I'll be on waiting for you. --Hockeyben  13:26, October 19, 2011 (UTC)

Let's talk on Chat now. Wikias server crashed so we couldn't talk earlier.Hockeyben  01:38, October 21, 2011 (UTC)

Can we talk now?Hockeyben  03:04, October 21, 2011 (UTC)

Sure. --Rayous 03:05, October 21, 2011 (UTC)

Attracting people[edit source]

Hey man. As you can tell by my photos, I go to alot of classic car shows. We had an idea at the last one to hand out business cards with all the wiki details on them to people. So now we have some made up and the next show we go to, we will be handing them out to the car owners as well as people viewing the cars.

Not much activity on the wiki lately as most of the contributors are on holiday and I've been sorting out my main wiki for it's second birthday and then I'm gonna go and add loads of pages and photos to Classic Cars Wiki :)

TheWWC 10:38, October 21, 2011 (UTC)

Since we're affiliates maybe you could add Autopedia's URL to your business cards. --Rayous 10:40, October 21, 2011 (UTC)

Skin[edit source]

Check out the new and improved skin. :) --Hockeyben  17:03, October 21, 2011 (UTC)

What do you think of the skin?Hockeyben  01:46, October 22, 2011 (UTC)

I don't really like it, but I'm at a point where I don't care. --Rayous Talk 01:47, October 22, 2011 (UTC)
It was the best I could come up with, and looks a lot better than the old one. Hopefully Carman39 will continue contributing.Hockeyben  01:50, October 22, 2011 (UTC)

I feel discouraged, we've got 8500 pages and 27,000 images, yet not much of a community to speak of. Hockeyben  01:53, October 22, 2011 (UTC)

Hey, Zantam's here right? --Rayous Talk 01:55, October 22, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, but he doesn't really edit here. He mainly helps with MediaWiki and skin related stuff. No sign of RM.Hockeyben  01:57, October 22, 2011 (UTC)
Ok, now that all the articles from Wikicars have been imported, it's time to import the images. --Rayous Talk 03:24, October 22, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I agree. I hate uploading images, though. I think there's around 4,000 to do.Hockeyben  03:37, October 22, 2011 (UTC)
@Rayous, what do you not like from the skin/colourset/wallpaper and what would you want from a skin/colourset/wallpaper? Which Wiki's out there do you think have a good s/c/w? ---Zantam03 (Talk) 08:42, October 22, 2011 (UTC)
The problem is, I don't know what to say. So let's just leave it as it is until someone else complains. --Rayous Talk 12:46, October 22, 2011 (UTC)

Edited pages[edit source]

HI rayous i created 2 pages . look at SEAT Mii and skoda citygo .i made those pages all by my self bye from Carman39

Ok, please leave your signature with four tides: ~~~~ --Rayous Talk 11:03, October 22, 2011 (UTC)
Ok i will --Carman39 17:08 October 25 2011 (UTC)

Chinese[edit source]

Should we start a Chinese Autopedia? You probably know some Chinese.Hockeyben  01:18, October 24, 2011 (UTC)

No thanks, that will double my work. --Rayous Talk 01:44, October 24, 2011 (UTC)
You could split it up, not double it. But if your not interested, that's fine too.Hockeyben  01:57, October 24, 2011 (UTC)
I've lost my wiki-editing addiction again, so I'm taking a break for a while. --Rayous Talk 14:31, October 24, 2011 (UTC)
You know, I've been feeling exactly the same way about wikis right now. I'm on a semi-break at the moment too. --Hockeyben  14:32, October 24, 2011 (UTC)

Maybe that's how RM feels too. --Hockeyben  14:35, October 24, 2011 (UTC)

You seem to have regained your editing motivation. :) --Hockeyben  15:08, October 26, 2011 (UTC)

Yep, it didn't take too long. --Rayous Talk 00:32, October 27, 2011 (UTC)

Hey. How's it going? Sorry I've not edited for the last week. I've been taking a break from wikis in general, but I'm back now. :) --Hockeyben  14:35, November 1, 2011 (UTC)

I'm doing ok. --Rayous Talk 15:31, November 1, 2011 (UTC)
I see you've edited quite a bit over the past week. Why did Randomtime delete a whole bunch of Ferrari images? Vandalism? --Hockeyben  15:33, November 1, 2011 (UTC)
I asked Randomtime to delete 46 Ferrari images and he accidentally deleted all the images on the page.
I think that's it, RM's gone for good and I can't talk to him due to this. --Rayous Talk 15:36, November 1, 2011 (UTC)
Wikipedia rules are waaay to strict. That editor was stupid, you werent chastising him for edits on Wikipedia, it was for not editing Autopedia. --Hockeyben  15:38, November 1, 2011 (UTC)

PS: I just made a french Auto Wiki http://fr.automobile.wikia.com/wiki/Wiki_Automobile. Just edit there (make a userpage or something) and I can give you sysop rights. (I know you probably don't speak the language, but just in case). --Hockeyben  15:41, November 1, 2011 (UTC)

-S, I don't know French. What good will that wiki do? --Rayous Talk 15:43, November 1, 2011 (UTC)
I know French. --Hockeyben  15:44, November 1, 2011 (UTC)
Ok, Gotta go, bye. --Rayous Talk 15:46, November 1, 2011 (UTC)

Can you upload the missing images on Koenigsegg CCX? They can't be found on wikicars, use netcarshow or wherever else you may get them.--Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 01:10, November 3, 2011 (UTC)

No problem, I'll do it later. --Rayous Talk 01:12, November 3, 2011 (UTC)
Great. Come on chat.Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 01:13, November 3, 2011 (UTC)

Come on chat if you're still on.Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 01:45, November 7, 2011 (UTC)

?[edit source]

Are you on a wikibreak or something? You haven't edited much for awhile now. Can we talk later? Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 02:58, November 9, 2011 (UTC)

I'm gonna resign. --Rayous Talk 10:15, November 9, 2011 (UTC)
So your basically gonna let autopedia crash and burn. Why do you wanna resign anyway? Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 14:10, November 9, 2011 (UTC)
I'm moving on, like RM. It's time that I find other things to do in my life. But if RM does makes a return though, I'll probably comeback then. --Rayous Talk 15:35, November 9, 2011 (UTC)
Okay, bye then. :( --Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 16:16, November 9, 2011 (UTC)
If I get over my personal problems, I'll maybe return in a few days. --Rayous Talk 02:50, November 10, 2011 (UTC)

Online at http://chess.com If you wanna play, I'll give you my username. --Rayous Talk 14:35, November 15, 2011 (UTC)


Sorry, I can't at the moment. Thanks for the offer I'm transferring some stuff off of ShoutWiki right now, which is STILL DOWN. .--Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 14:38, November 15, 2011 (UTC)
I'm sorry to hear that, but again, there's nothing you can do about it.--Rayous Talk 14:42, November 15, 2011 (UTC)
I am in the process of leaving sw. They are beyond pathetic. --Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 14:43, November 15, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I know. --Rayous Talk 14:46, November 15, 2011 (UTC)
Have you returned to Autopedia 100%? You were taking a break a few days ago.--Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 14:48, November 15, 2011 (UTC)
I was going to take a break until the Kia Ray and 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 came out, and I knew it had to be done. I still need to do the SLS AMG Roadster and the MINI Coupe. --Rayous Talk 14:56, November 15, 2011 (UTC)
I'll try to come back and finish up the F1 seasons, Chevy Vega, and Pagani zonda images after I'm done with moving. Still no RM, he's blown us off. --Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 14:58, November 15, 2011 (UTC)

Well, I can't really help out at the moment. Sorry. --Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 15:06, November 15, 2011 (UTC)

Should we get randomtime to remove all non-existent file links from wikicars? We're never gonna get the 4,000 images done without help from RM.

Sure --Rayous Talk 15:13, November 15, 2011 (UTC)
The only thing is: Then we'll never get all the images from Wikicars. Are you sure about that?--Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 15:14, November 15, 2011 (UTC)
If it's does something more negative than positive, then don't. --Rayous Talk 15:17, November 15, 2011 (UTC)
I'm not sure.. The question we should be asking is.. Are we ever going to upload those 4k images? --Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 15:19, November 15, 2011 (UTC)
It will have to be done, even if it takes months. --Rayous Talk 15:21, November 15, 2011 (UTC)
We need RM. Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 15:24, November 15, 2011 (UTC)

Come on chat.Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 03:42, November 23, 2011 (UTC)

I'm a bit busy. --Rayous Talk 03:50, November 23, 2011 (UTC)

Expanded wiki navigation[edit source]

I've disabled the expanded wiki navigation in Special:WikiFeatures. Wikia forced some new "improvements" on it, which made it look awful. --Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 17:25, November 23, 2011 (UTC)

Ok. --Rayous Talk 02:31, November 24, 2011 (UTC)

Administrator Application[edit source]

Hi Rayous,

I noticed your wiki just the other day and became intrigued. I guessed you could need some help editing, but I have a better proposition for you.

I've been brought up with knowledge of cars and so am wondering if I may become an administrator. How would I do this?

Please post your reply on my talk page on my user page on The Junior Scriptwriters Community Wiki.

I'd love to hear from you!

My favourite car is, because of its attractive styling and particularly the DSport version, the Citroen DS3.

Thanks

I've asked Wikia to remove RM's rights, but DaNASCAT wants me to show evidence. --Rayous Talk 04:42, December 1, 2011 (UTC)
Just say he has 12 edits and there is no reason for him to have crat rights. If he comes back, he can have them back.Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 04:46, December 1, 2011 (UTC)
I'm now sure he's probably not gonna comeback. His message was sincere. --Rayous Talk 04:47, December 1, 2011 (UTC)
I know. Can you come back on chat for a minute?Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 04:49, December 1, 2011 (UTC)

Category[edit source]

Do you think a Hypercar category would be good, or is it too specific. HORTON11: InboxFollow me! 19:16, December 7, 2011 (UTC)

Good. --Rayous Talk 05:04, December 8, 2011 (UTC)

Admin[edit source]

Hey. Just dropping by and noticed we have a new admin. Btw, it was a year ago yesterday I joined autopedia. Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 04:00, December 9, 2011 (UTC)

December 7 you mean? --Rayous Talk 04:02, December 9, 2011 (UTC)
It's still December 8 where I live. Can we talk on Chat for a min.Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 04:06, December 9, 2011 (UTC)
I don't have anything to say at this moment. --Rayous Talk 04:08, December 9, 2011 (UTC)

Happy holidays. :)Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 03:36, December 26, 2011 (UTC)

Merry Christmas. --Rayous Talk 11:43, December 26, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, for some of the newer cars.Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 04:14, January 3, 2012 (UTC)

Don't you think 2 weeks is a bit too long block for Carman39? All he did is create a incorrect category.Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 04:10, January 4, 2012 (UTC)

I gave him a warning but this is what he did. --Rayous Talk 04:13, January 4, 2012 (UTC)
Ok. Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 04:18, January 4, 2012 (UTC)

Come on chat when you can. I've got something to show you.Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 15:16, January 11, 2012 (UTC)

Okay. --Rayous Talk 01:04, January 13, 2012 (UTC)

How about between 9 and 10 am your time today? I'll be around... Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 01:51, January 13, 2012 (UTC)

I'll be checking in til around 11/11:30. Try to get back to me by then.Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 03:06, January 13, 2012 (UTC)

Why not message me on a another wiki? --Rayous Talk 14:50, January 13, 2012 (UTC)

NASCAR vehicles[edit source]

I'll soon be creating new pages for the 22 NASCAR vehicles in GT5, over at Gran Turismo Wiki. Would you have any use for those pages over here when I'm done. If so, I'll format the pages to autopedia standard as best I can, and (try to) import them for you.

Sure. --Rayous Talk 01:35, January 28, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. I wasn't sure whether that was within the scope of Autopedia or not.

Hey[edit source]

Havent been on (any wiki) in ages. Been busy... maybe I'll help more in the coming weeks. I see you haven't edited much in the past month or so as well. Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 20:17, February 28, 2012 (UTC)

Activity[edit source]

Have you left Autopedia, or are you just inactive for a while? --Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 16:06, March 20, 2012 (UTC)

I done for good. --Rayous Talk 14:41, March 26, 2012 (UTC)

Spotlight[edit source]

This wiki is again being spotlighted by Wikia. Any chance you want to come back and edit here again?--Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 01:54, May 3, 2012 (UTC)

I don't think so. There are too many things we've missed over the past few months (e.g. Ferrari F12, 2013 Dodge Viper). That's is why I'm throwing in the towel. --Rayous Talk 09:25, May 5, 2012 (UTC)
You know that rm still edits at Wikipedia? He just left the wiki in ruin. Oh, and ShoutWiki is offline again. They only managed to stay up for a month. The server crashed, their backups were corrupted, so everything dating back to June 2011 was lost. Jack Phoenix (who I now know founded SW) has fired some o staff. They are moving to another new server. Pathetic. We gotta talk on chat again. Catch up with each other. :)--Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 14:10, May 5, 2012 (UTC)

Come on chat if you're still here.--Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 01:42, May 6, 2012 (UTC)

No new users from the spotlight. I think we have to accept that mass-editing car enthusiasts don't grow on trees.--Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 13:57, May 21, 2012 (UTC)

Back[edit source]

RM's back. Only on a limited capacity, though. :) --Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 13:34, May 25, 2012 (UTC)

Will you start editing more on here, or are you semi-retired? I have some time this week, so I'll try to be more active over the next few days.--Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 23:43, June 4, 2012 (UTC)

I'm still semi-retired. --Rayous Talk 04:59, June 16, 2012 (UTC)

Recent Models[edit source]

Hey. Just updated some of the new models that came out in 2012. I'm making an effort to be more active on here. --Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 15:10, June 25, 2012 (UTC)

Sup. Wanna chat? --Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 03:51, June 26, 2012 (UTC)

Yes or no? I can't stay on much longer.--Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 03:59, June 26, 2012 (UTC)

Gotta go now. --Hockeyben (talk - contribs) 04:08, June 26, 2012 (UTC)

Possible SEO-related adjustments[edit source]

Hi Rayous (and other admins). I am reaching out to you because Wikia is looking at some ways to increase search ranking on wikis, using some of the new markup that is part of HTML5. We are looking for a few wikis on which to test this, and I wonder if you guys might be willing to help. There would be no visible changes to any pages, it's all going to be wikitext markup, specifically in your infobox templates. There would be nothing for you to do, we'll just let you know what we've changed when we're done. There is almost no chance that this would have a negative SEO impact; at worst it would have no effect, but it will hopefully make your wiki come up higher in search results, and we'll certainly let you know what results we see! Please confer with the other admins as needed and let me know if you guys are okay with this, or if you have any questions. BertH (help forum | blog) 20:39, August 15, 2012 (UTC)

Hi Rayous, HaloRacing343, Hockeyben - I just wanted to follow up with all of you, on this message from a few months ago. We got some interesting information from our monitoring which will be helpful to us as we plan SEO-related work for the next year. For example, often we saw that images from this wiki are the top result for Google Images searches on terms like "Honda" and "Honda logo". In general, traffic to file pages on this wiki increased during the time we were monitoring it, though we cannot say conclusively that it was due to the changes we made to the infobox templates. Of course, traffic directly to the the file pages is not quite the result we want, but such an increase is still good for the whole wiki's SEO. Our active testing and monitoring is concluded. We are thankful for your willingness to help out! BertH (help forum | blog) 21:34, November 20, 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for sharing my thoughts about Volkswagen - Das Auto.[edit source]

Dear Rayous,

In Germany, "Das Auto," the advertising slog for Volkswagen Passenger Cars, means "The car."

Info Box[edit source]

Can I have a link to the Race Car info box?
