No PNG's and creating pages
Jackbel, thanks for your contributions. Some adjustments you need to make:
1. Do not upload PNG's (take too long to load). JPG's only.
2. Make sure your screenshots are set to the correct aspect ratio (16x9 if widescreen).
3. When making actor pages, please use the new table format. See the revised Honor Blackman page as a template for future pages.
Thanks for your cooperation. --Ben41 09:42, 6 May 2010 (UTC)
Stop it, bruski
Don't be re-uploading MPM's images, when they're either the same image or lower-quality.-protoAuthor 02:03, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
Creating actor pages
Just one minor correction when making actor pages. Please put the gun first in the table format and make sure you put in [[Category:Actor]] and Category: Actor Male or Actor Female. Please use the Marcel Bozzuffi page as a template for future pages. --Ben41 07:15, 11 May 2010 (UTC)
You're still uploading your shots as PNG's! Please only JPG's. Thanks. --Ben41 22:42, 14 May 2010 (UTC)
Man from Hong Kong
When putting your screencaps on the movie page, the standard thumbsize is 600px, not 700px. Please modify accordingly. Thanks. --Ben41 08:21, 15 June 2010 (UTC)
...And Justice For All is a dark comedy
This movie is really a dramadey. It's serious, but it has loads of black humor in it. And that's accurate. Anyone who has worked within the so-called Criminal justice system can appreciate that. I think it can be categorized as comedy as well. --Jcordell 17:52, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
well, when i saw it, i just didn't see the comedy.
Yes. Well give yourself a few more years and you'll probably see it more. I was thirteen as well when I first saw it on television (1981) with my father - who was a career police officer. I remember him laughing at things that went over my head. I then saw it again about thirteen years later and I got the humor. --Jcordell 00:57, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
so, because I'm young I can't see humor?
FYI: it's variants with an "a"

Evans Repeating rifle Page
The photo of the rifle magazine serves a purpose. Nobody else has any trouble with it being on the main page. Please leave it alone. --Jcordell 05:11, 24 December 2010 (UTC)
I understand moving the many variation photos to the discussion page. But the Evans is an oddity and it's helpful to show the mecahnics of the rifle. It isn't a waste of space. --Jcordell 05:13, 24 December 2010 (UTC)
Howdah Pistol and Charging Natives. Your answer.
In the 19th century England's empire spanned the world (Which you know. Since Australia was part of that empire.) and they frequently found themselves fighting various tribes such as the Zulus and the Mahdist Army in the Sudan not to mention Afghanistan, India,Māori Wars in New Zealand, Burma ect. The 36 caliber ball shot by the Colt Navy revolver was found to lack stopping power. Especially at close range when used against a determined,powerful warrior running at one full tilt.
The big heavy slug from the Howdah pistol packed a hell of a wallop at close range. British officers were expected to command their men in combat - not engage in actual hands on fighting. They were equipped with swords and pistols or revolvers. If they were in a situation where they were having to actually fight something had gone terribly wrong and it was at close range. They liked the repeating/multi shot features of the early Colt revolver, but the caliber wasn't up to snuff. Plus it was slow to reload. One of the reasons why British gunmakers developed the breaktop revolver such as the Webley. Fast to empty, fast to reload, firing a big slow lead slug. Anyway the Howdah could deliever two or even three rapid fire shots. Just enough (possibly) to keep one alive in a melee. --Jcordell 17:27, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
- Yeah, I already got that part but still, the sentence sounds a little... dark. --Jackbel 20:33, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
Well I think it works. We aren't obligated to be Politically Correct here. And it isn't racist. Though I guess I could go with a Charging Anti Imperialist Indeginious Freedom Fighter or CAIIFF for short. LOL. --Jcordell 20:44, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
Norinco M16 clone
Though fascinating and somewhat known already (most gun enthusiats are familiar with the chinese clone of the M16, Norinco was going to import a near perfect clone of the Colt AR15 SP1 in 1989 if the U.S. didn't ban the import of 'assault style' weapons that year), IMFDB rules pretty much lay out the following concepts, "If it does not appear in anything, and it is not known to be in active movie armorer inventory, then it does not merit a section." Sure, we have variants which technically don't appear (like the real XM177 models) but they are what the gun are supposed to be. If the Chinese M16 clone is not in a movie or show, then it can't be on the page. MoviePropMaster2008 11:59, 11 March 2011 (MSK)
GTA London Page
Stock gun images should go before any in-media images and cover/poster images should be set at 300px. Also, makes sure that if there are multiple stock image for a gun that you use the one that is closest to the weapon portrayed. And if it doesn't resemble anything, don't say that it does. Also, research is your friend. --PistolJunkie 09:40, 1 April 2011 (CDT)

Were you planning to continue working on the Braindead page? If this film only has one weapon, it's best to be ready with screenshots from the film. It was marked for deletion because there were no screenshots, but please inform us if you're going to come back to it. --Ben41 13:44, 15 September 2011 (CDT)
- Ok, I'll get right on that--Jackbel 15:51, 15 September 2011 (CDT)
