Not a big fan of this template. It's a lot of work to input a lot of information that's not always pertinent to firearms. We also have way too many films to convert all to this format. Would rather have users concentrate on providing good details on what firearms were used in the films. If they want to add some details, the paragraph summary is fine for this. It's just too much like wikipedia as well. --Ben41 19:32, 15 March 2012 (CDT)

Ben, what do you think of the updated version? Out of curiosity, why is it bad that it is like wikipedia? --Zackmann08 14:36, 23 April 2012 (CDT)
I appreciate the work, but I am still not sold on this. After converting a lot of actor pages and gun pages to the table format, I am seeing an enormous amount of time and effort having to be spent to convert every single movie and television show to this format when the time would be better spent elsewhere. There are still a significant amount of gun pages and actor pages that haven't been updated to the table format. --Ben41 14:57, 23 April 2012 (CDT)
I will agree with you there. I've been spending a fair amount of time doing conversions myself and it is a pain in the ass. My question I guess is this. "Is this a good addition to the site?" If the answer is yes, then lets consider making in the standard for NEW pages and then slowly but surely start converting older pages. But I agree with you, it would require a lot of time. --Zackmann08 16:03, 23 April 2012 (CDT)

Is anybody else having the problem that for every page that uses this template it creates a big gap at the top? I don't remember is always doing this, has something changed? I don't think it is adds related as it goes away if the template is deleted. --commando552 (talk) 16:42, 3 August 2013 (EDT)

From the logs, it looks like Bunni added the lines in June. I thought it was for ads. --Funkychinaman (talk) 17:02, 3 August 2013 (EDT)
Did they not originally work with the ads then? I wouldn't know as I use adblock. --commando552 (talk) 18:15, 3 August 2013 (EDT)
I've never seen anything either. --Funkychinaman (talk) 18:33, 3 August 2013 (EDT)
I do see those gaps, but I'm not sure if it's always with that template. Usually is though. StanTheMan (talk) 21:50, 3 August 2013 (EDT)

I can't really understand how to make my own page without modifying this page! Can you help me please? (talk)
