Happy New Year!

Say hello to 2021!--Ben41 (talk) 03:07, 1 January 2021 (EST)

Cheers, everybody! Here's hoping that 2021 goes better than 2020. Pyr0m4n14c (talk) 12:20, 1 January 2021 (EST)
Same to you. Fingers crossed. --Jcordell (talk) 01:30, 2 January 2021 (EST)
Amen to that. --Dan San (talk) 13:29, 2 January 2021 (EST)

Need help classifying something

So, I've been working on a side-project for a while, and in the process, I've added a fair few new gun images to the site. Normally, I'd just put them on the appropriate gun page, or on the relevant category page if it doesn't have a page of its own. Problem, is, I just added this:

6P62 - 12.7x108mm

This here is, as the caption suggests, a 6P62. It's a Russian prototype, it's chambered in 12.7x108mm, and it's full-auto. It was never meant for long-range use (you can't find an image of this thing online with a scope, and it'd probably beat one to death if you tried), so it can't go under Sniper Rifles; it's full-auto, so it can't go with the Semi-Auto Rifles, it fires a round too big to be an Assault Rifle, Battle Rifle, or Light Machine Gun, and it's a man-portable, non-fixed-mounted gun, so it can't be a Heavy Machine Gun either. Where should I put this thing? BrandonColeford1992 (talk) 02:25, 5 January 2021 (EST)

Miscellaneous section of the rifle category maybe?--Aidoru (talk) 02:39, 5 January 2021 (EST)
It was originally intended as a "Ручной крупнокалиберный пулемёт 6П62" (Handheld Large-Caliber Machine Gun 6P62), so we can specify it as a machine gun Pustelga7 (talk) 03:59, 5 January 2021 (EST)
At some point, I had a discussion with someone else here regarding this gun. It can go to the machine gun category. It seems to be rare case of a heavy machine gun that is actually man-portable. Sometimes it's also referred to as an anti-materiel rifle; if we choose this one, we can simply list it under the general "Rifles" category. --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 07:20, 5 January 2021 (EST)
See, I don't really think we can put it in "Rifles", since there's no subcategory for full-auto rifles, and creating one would just result in a big mish-mash of all the assault rifles and select-fire battle rifles. I could get behind calling it an HMG, but I'd still call it a bit strange given that it's a gun one person can (ostensibly) pick up and fire. Maybe we could create a dedicated Anti-Materiel Rifle category? Sure, it would contain a bunch of guns that are already in the Sniper Rifle category, but then again, we have separate categories for Grenade Launchers and UBGLs, so it's not like it'd be unprecedented. Plus, this way we could remove the AT rifles from the Sniper Rifle category, since they really don't fit the bill. Oh, and speaking of AT, I have another discussion to write in.

Then just put it in the machine gun category.--Wuzh (talk) 00:07, 7 January 2021 (EST)
Fair enough. Still think that the AMR category idea holds some water, though. BrandonColeford1992 (talk) 01:20, 7 January 2021 (EST)

Category Proposals

How about a category for films in the US National Film Registry? As iconic films, these are likely among the first articles a newcomer would check, and their cultural importance makes documenting them of particular note. Of lesser note, we have at least four films (Operation Kid Brother, Per Aspera Ad Astra, Diabolik, Invasion USA) that have been featured on Mystery Science Theater 3000, and there are many, many more films it featured that could have an article in the future. Should a category for one or both be added? --VladVladson (talk) 00:21, 19 January 2021 (EST)

National Film Registry. --Greg-Z (talk) 01:22, 19 January 2021 (EST)


I've made one. Feel free to float any suggestions/improvements by me; if you're a moderator here, let me know on my talk page and I'll set you up as one there (should you so desire). Rules aren't that much of an issue; generally speaking, if it wouldn't fly here, it won't fly there.

So, if you so desire, hop on in.

Lemme know what you guys think - like I said, I'm open to suggestions. Pyr0m4n14c (talk) 16:42, 21 January 2021 (EST)

To Catch A Predator page

Would anyone be opposed to a page for To Catch A Predator with Chris Hansen? Strange idea but the show did feature a lot of firearms, mostly used by police, but also in the cars of some predators.
