Hey man! From reading your user page (and username), it looks like you know your cars... I think. So I wondered if you might be interested in the (vaguely) car-related project I am currently working on and make any suggestions for changes etc. I don't know that much about cars, and perhaps you could inject some 'technical knowledge' into it. Cheers for your time, and look forward to hearing any comments! --Hindleyite Talk 11:43, 30 April 2006 (UTC)
Hi! I read your car-related project and it's very well written. Congrats also on winning the Poo Lit Surprise award. I have to say that I'm not really an expert on cars in terms of technical stuff. But I know more about cars than my parents (who don't drive) and I like to research more on new makes and models and their performance. One suggestion I could give is that you could be a little more sarcastic for the Design part of your article. E.g. 2.4L V6 could be 1.0L in-line 2 or, on the other extreme, 8L V12 so that people will think the car really sucks - such a big engine and it hardly goes at all. The 0-60 stuff is good. Also you used the strikethrough effect well. Maybe you could use it more in the last 2 sections. I'll tell you if I think of more suggestions.
I'm working on an article on Maserati written in prose style. Should be up soon. Feel free to give your comments and thanks for dropping by. Cheers!
- Hi again. Thanks for the suggestions - as ever I am grateful for any input. I have now adopted your idea of the specs being good but the performance not so good as a bit of an 'in-joke' for anybody who knows a reasonable amount about cars. Also, I have put another strikethrough joke in there, and will perhaps look to include more.
- I will look out for your Maserati article and give you some feedback on it as soon as I can! --Hindleyite Talk 13:45, 30 April 2006 (UTC)
Hi. You're welcome. Glad I was able to help out a fellow enthusiast and uncyclopedian :) I'm also looking forward to your project's completion. Good luck with those final edits. --Porsche
edit What? I never gave you a pie already?
edit Hey again
I noticed you put forward Maserati at VFH. It's always worth a try! I cleaned it up a bit and touched up the potato image for you. Hopefully people will like it... --Hindleyite | PL | CUN | Converse 10:29, 20 May 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for the edits. I joined about a month ago so I'm still quite a noob. Hopefully over time my articles will get better. Then maybe one of them can get featured. Yay! --Porsche | Talk Firefox sdrawkcab heheh 11:09, 20 May 2006 (UTC)
