  • Howdy!

    I have been very active over at Wikipedia in cleaning-up and maintaining the Formula 1 Records pages (for drivers and constructors ). Unfortunately, the community over there is of the opinion that none of it belongs on Wikipedia, and they suggested that the data should be found on a website like StatsF1.com or even here. My issue with StatsF1.com is that there are mistakes in their data, and their data is also incomplete, which leaves this wiki as the only real option. However, this wiki seems to have been idle for 3 or 4 years.

    Could you inform me of the status of this project? What I am interested in doing is setting up a template for career results for drivers and constructors, which would make referencing and updating the data much easier than the manual task over at Wikipedia (they only use a template for active drivers and constructors, not for historical data).

    Would this be a good place for that or should I start my own section on wikia?

    Cheers,

    • Hi, this project was started after ManipeF1 closed in order to create a database system to generate stats for the history of F1. I assume ManipeF1 used SQL to store and generate data from a central database. I attempted to create that type of system here but Wikia (now Fandom) doesn't support SQL in the way I would have liked. As a result, this project was abandoned without really getting off the ground. If you would like to try to work with this Wiki, I will grant you the admin rights to do so, but your input may be better suited to our primary site at F1 Wiki. Unfortunately I do not have the time to work heavily on either site, but we have some active admins over there who may be able to advise you.

      Thanks

    • I'd like to start poking around creating a career stats template. If it works the way I think it does, I can start bringing data over from Wikipedia. :)

    • OK, I've granted you admin rights so you can tinker with whatever you like. If there's anything you need help/advice with then let me know. I'll keep an eye on your progress.
