Welcome to IMFDB
Before you do any editing please take the time to read the Rules, Standards and Principles. This is a very important document that explains how this website is setup as well as telling you what is and isn't allowed. If it is determined by an admin that you have not read these rules, your account will be suspended. Continued non-compliance may result in a permanent ban. After that you should also read the IMFDB Screencapping Guide and the IMFDB Style Guide to familiarize yourself with the image and formatting requirements for pages you create.
There are a number of pages that desperately need your help. You can find these Incomplete pages here.

Signature in main pages
For something to be considered of a particular category, it must meet the criteria of said category. The generally accepted definition of a 'western' in fiction is that it has to do with the 'wild west' aka 'old west' motif, IE set in the western US in the mid-to-late 19th or at most very early 20th century. You've put that tag on movies and shows that are set in times that are not in that period (some that take place in quite contemporary times), in places that aren't in the American 'west', and have no other major elements or aspects that fit into a 'western' paradigm. I've reverted these edits. Please refrain from doing any more edits like this. StanTheMan (talk) 22:16, 28 September 2020 (EDT)
Sorry, but I have to mark the page as a candidate for deletion. It is WIP for a week, and no content appeared on the page. If you don't take steps to complete the page, we'll have to delete it soon. --Greg-Z (talk) 03:27, 1 November 2020 (EST)
- I'll try and work on it today. I've been busy with schoolwork from college. Plus I am very new to the formate & I'm still trying to figure out how to make a page.
- OK, I'm marking the page back to WIP, on your word of honor :). As for the formatting of pages, the easiest way is to look at the code of one of the existing ones. You are welcome to ask for assistance, if it is needed. I usually come here every day and I hope that I will be able to answer your questions quickly enough. --Greg-Z (talk) 14:54, 1 November 2020 (EST)
Thank you. I'm trying to learn the ins and outs of the site. I'll ask a buddy of mine to come over once he's out of quarantine to help me with other pages.
