File:AC Ace photographed at Knebworth 2012.jpg and othersEdit

Do not write in the descriptions such things like that: "Title is obviously wrong! This is not an AC Cobra but an AC Ace; furthermore, in 1971 the AC Cobra was already out of production by two years", please... Such comments you can write only in the rename request template. You should change the description for true one (without personal notes) and put the template for renaming (with all explanation you wish). Correct it, please.
Good luck! Wieralee (talk) 11:42, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for your message. I wrote this description before I knew how to request a name change, as I thought it was the only way to correct the info. I'll fix it soon.--Purzelbier (talk) 11:46, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Category:Armstrong Siddeley SpecialEdit

Hi, Why did you change the sort key on this category? Eddaido (talk) 12:12, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

Hello, Eddaido. When I created the new category "Armstrong Siddeley automobiles" in order to list the brand Armstrong Siddeley also in the category "Automobiles by brand" (and not just the generic "Vehicles by brand"), I thought it a good idea to order the different sub-categories alpha-numerically by model name. I think that's common standard with all automobile brands. Just compare any sizeable brand from "Alfa Romeo" to "Volvo". I didn't mean to do any harm. Is my edit problametical for you? We'll surely find a way to correct my edit if necessary. Kind regards, --Purzelbier (talk) 12:24, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
I can see that the logic escaped you and you have made the assumption cars are being sought by their name. Please would you understand when you go to change something they will have been organised by someone who knows more than you do about the subject and you should at least consult them first for courtesy if nothing else. Car manufacturers are rarely very logical in their choice of names for their products and the way you have chosen to list them is truly daringly irrational to anyone knowing the subject. Please may we discuss this further. Eddaido (talk) 22:25, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
You're absolutely right - the sort logic escaped me and I shouldn't have changed it whithout contemplation or consult. I just didn't think twice. My knowledge in Armstrong Siddeley isn't deeper than that in Studebaker, Lancia or Borgward. When it comes to historic automobiles, I'm an absolute generalist, not a specialist in one brand. You're critique is absolutely justified. Therefore, I will restore the former sort key immediately. Beg your pardon. --Purzelbier (talk) 08:41, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

Leere KategorienEdit

Hallo Purzelbier, bitte für leere Kategorien nicht das "große" Löschverfahren mit {{delete|...}} verwenden, sondern das abgekürzte mit {{speedy|empty}}, danke. Gruß, --Achim (talk) 19:21, 26 February 2016 (UTC)

Servus Achim, vielen Dank für die Rückmeldung - ich werde es künftig beherzigen (war Premiere für mich...). Gruß, --Purzelbier (talk) 10:33, 27 February 2016 (UTC)
