Za dvumya zaytsami

Thanks for the corrections. I've thought that Nagant screenshots are within the limit (because, well, basically there are 9 for two characters and also fake "muzzle flashes" are shown). And I also don't know how to re-write comments for screens, if some of them will be deleted... By the way, I have a problem with re-uploading the pictures that were cropped to avoid black square, mostly I have the glitch which has pictures newly uploaded looking the same as the previous edition. Can you help with it, please? --Kloga (talk) 14:20, 15 December 2013 (EST)

Great thanks for explaining. Sorry for unintentional rule-breaking and bending at any possible event - I'm just trying to be an unconventional thinker in most of the things and in cases when it doesn't help it turns into weird behavior. It helps quite a lot, though. --Kloga (talk) 14:54, 15 December 2013 (EST)

Igla

Hello, yes I have such plans, though, maybe, I'll need more time for this one - there are significantly more firearms then in the first movie. It's interesting that they haven't found any Margolin for "Remix" and used some Colt-1911. Is still wonder is it a real gun or some kind of non-firing replica or airsoft. Nugmanov's "Dikiy Vostok" is also a thing to do. By the way, glad to see that you're even one of the admins now. Are you the first admin from Post-Soviet region? Best regards. --Kloga (talk) 15:06, 22 November 2013 (EST)

...

you are welcome :) а я в субботу планировал Белое солнце оформлять. Придется значит Чапаевым заняться I planned create a page for White Sun of the Desert in saturday. So I'll work on Chapaev. Bednardos - 26 October 2011

Sorry :( Извини, что обогнал... На ближайшее время у меня планов на выкладку фильмов нет, так что надеюсь не мешать. :) Excuse me... I have no plans on creating pages for nearest time so I'll not cross your way. Greg-Z 04:20, 27 October 2011 (CDT)
glad I was helpful. I like those French police movies. Sorry I don't know Russian. --Jcordell 10:00, 3 November 2011 (CDT)
Also discussion in other languages other than English are frowned upon on IMFDB, btw. We smacked down some other members for posting in Cyrillic because the mods couldn't tell if they were violating the terms of membership or not, if they were writing in a foreign language. So Guys, keep it in English only! Thanks.
I'm sorry :( I translated the russian text on the page. And I'll keep english only in future. Greg-Z 02:35, 16 November 2011 (CST)

Thanks...

...from Ukraine. Especially for The Place of Meeting Cannot Be Changed. :) You can read about my current plans on Bednardos User talk page and it'll be honour to me to help you in something or receive help from you, or both. Best regards. --Kloga 16:16, 11 April 2012 (CDT)

Posters

Great work on the Russian movies. Is there ANY way you can get better POSTERS? DO you have the DVDs? Can you scan the DVD cover art? It is frustrating to have smaller resolution posters for Russian Cinema. MoviePropMaster2008 02:02, 16 November 2011 (CST)

Thank you! I'll try to continue this work. I used old cinema posters taken mostly from Wikipedia and IMDB because "Rules, Standards and Principles" says that posters are better then DVD covers. And yes, they are mostly of poor quality. I'll try to upload DVD covers in addition to posters where it's possible. Greg-Z 02:16, 16 November 2011 (CST)

Hi from Motherland!

Could you send a test-letter to my E-mail: [email protected]

I need in your advice Flexo 15:11, 22 November 2011 (CST)

Good evening, comrade. I'm added two films in my nearest planes: Nayti i obezvredit and Voroshilovskiy strelok. Also we can use e-mail and communicate in our native languages on it. My e-mail is [email protected] Bednardos 12:55, 24 November 2011 (CST)

Good evening! Thanks, I'll e-mail. Greg-Z 13:04, 24 November 2011 (CST)

Mosin-Nagant rifle

Thank you for finishing the table for the Mosin-Nagant page. In the future, please add weapons to pages using this table format. --Ben41 03:47, 8 December 2011 (CST)

Glad to be helpful. I'll make the table on Mosin-Nagant page for TV and games. Greg-Z 04:21, 8 December 2011 (CST)

Actor pages

It's good you create Russian actor pages. Just some reminders. Just like you did with Nikolai Yeryomenko, Jr. Remember to post whether or not an actor are still alive (if dead then they must have their death date on the page and be categorized in the DECEASED ACTOR category). If they died too early to be old age, then we should try to list what their cause of death was. We've slipped a bit in the past, since we're supposed to do that as a tribute to their careers. And I've noticed a lot of pages which don't do that. I will also try to update as many as I can when I have the time. Also if possible we try to get a good ACTOR style headshot for their actor page in addition to a shot of them with a gun :) Thanks again. It's harder for us to know the biographies of the Soviet actors, their info is usually in Russian.....MoviePropMaster2008

Hi, usually it's not a good idea to respond on your own talk page. No one will actually look at it and may only notice it if they are replying to something (good thing you copied it to my talk page). Answer to question 1: Usually we want a screencap that we have HERE on IMFDB to showcase the actor with a weapon. The only time we use a promotional still if for some reason we cannot get a decent shot showing both the actor AND the gun. Promotional stills which don't show gun usage aren't allow, unless it is a headshot for the actor. The only times we use actor promotional head shots is (a) when the actor is not a super well known international star and he/she is rather hard to identify in a movie or (b) when they are deceased. Deceased actors get special attention. Their birth dates and death dates are noted on their pages. They are allowed a NICE headshot which does not require a gun in it, as a result of them being deceased. Usually we try to have a short 'write up' or summary of how or when they died. if an actor is not that well known, we sometimes give a brief description of them (especially if they are a character actor or someone famous for something else (like a singer)). But that's to help people know a little more about them if they are not that famous. :) Hope this helps. (2) We don't like links to other pages ... yet. Perhaps if Bunni can arrange some sort of payment from these sites for the traffic we send their way. LOL. Either way, we try to be self contained, but try out the links if you think they are important. I'd like to see what you come up with. But be sure to let me know on my talk page when you want me to check out something. best regards MoviePropMaster2008 00:54, 27 December 2011 (CST)

When you convert to tables

Remember that the names of the genres always default to the next highest order when it comes to "lines". Don't be distracted by the many pages that do it the wrong way, they eventually have to be changed.

So if a gun has 'video games' as the only table, the title of the table is:
==Video Games==
not
===Video Games===

Thanks. Hope this makes sense. It is hard to describe something with wiki codes. MoviePropMaster2008 01:23, 28 December 2011 (CST)

Sergey/Sergei

IMDb does lots of things that I don't agree with (Asian names, for example) but it's the standard that we're told to go with. --Funkychinaman 14:01, 29 December 2011 (CST)

Translating names is always a bit weird. The one that always comes to mind is Joseph/Josef/Iosef Stalin. Muhammad/Mohammed also comes to mind. In Russian, are all Sergei/Sergey's supposed to just be "Sergei?" How do we know he just doesn't spell it differently, like Alan/Allen/Allan? --Funkychinaman 14:20, 29 December 2011 (CST)

Quick grammar lesson

Not trying to be a jerk, but you could use some grammar help. It's "he readies the weapon"(with an ies) or "he is readying the weapon", not "he is reading the weapon" To ready a weapon is to get it prepared, you read a book.

Rather than a shootout in the snows, it's a shootout in the snow.

Instead of "he is firing weapon X', try "he fires weapon X", or "he opens fire with weapon X". Same thing with shoot/shoots.

One character fires (with an s), multiple characters fire (without the s)

English grammar is weird, but here's hoping you can improve.--Mandolin 19:31, 26 January 2012 (CST)

Any chance of putting a synposis on the Russian movie pages?

Since most of us have not seen a lot of the Soviet era movies, could you put a brief plot synopsis, mentioning some of the major characters (and the actors who play them) so that we have an idea what the movie is about? Thanks. It would increase interest in the film if we knew more about what the story was. MoviePropMaster2008 23:42, 26 January 2012 (CST)

A request I did on the forum

Don't know if you are on the forums for IMFDB yet. But here it is. I copied it here for your talk page.

Since we have an influx of Russian IMFDB members, I have a favor to ask. Until recently I was going to fly to Russia (on business and while there take some pics of Russian weapons. ) But that project fell apart and I sure am not going to fly all the way over there just for that.
We, (in the U.S.) have provided lots of high resolution photographs of the weapons available here.
I was hoping if any of our Russian members can photograph or acquire high resolution pics of Russian weapons. It's a hell of a lot easier when you live there.
Our listing of Russian weapons (those that are not commonly owned or sold here in the United States), have many terrible pictures. They are low resolution (sometimes B&W) pics taken from some manual somewhere.
Can any of you Russian IMFDB members help out the site and contribute good quality pics of Russian weapons? It would be very much appreciated.
Hope this doesn't call on deaf ears
Thanks.

Let me know if you or anyone you know can help with this. MoviePropMaster2008 02:04, 31 January 2012 (CST)

Re: MCM

Hi. The MCM is listed on Izhmekh's website: here and as far as I know Izhmash does not give a crap about handguns, especially in .22 cal. Wikipedia also mentions only Izhmekh. Maybe Izhmash also offered it in the past (doubt it tho), but Izhmekh definitely does it now. - bozitojugg3rn4ut 06:48, 31 January 2012 (CST)

Khartoum. Nice work

Good work on Khartoum. That is a page that has needed work for awhile. I would have done it, but I was unable to get a DVD only the VHS.--Jcordell 14:46, 19 April 2012 (CDT)

Well that page had to be made. If for no other reason than the fact that I really didn't want to see the Nordenfelt page to get deleted. Plus Mr. Heston needs more entries on his page. --Jcordell 14:59, 19 April 2012 (CDT)

Page Categories

Hey man. Please remember to subdivide new movie pages into "Pistols", "Revolvers", "Submachine Guns", etc. :-) --Zackmann08 12:41, 5 May 2012 (CDT)

Model 17 Stielhandgranate

Hi Greg! It not quite true that not there are models of the Model 17 Stielhandgranate. I searched it and the one I have encountered. It also has the same description on the jacket as here -[1]. So I re-place it.

Here in this movie - The Lighthorsemen--Pandolfini 13:39, 17 May 2012 (CDT)

Do not add IMDB links

Please do not add IMDB or Wikipedia links to the actor pages as these sites are not official sponsors of IMFDB. --Ben41 21:05, 17 May 2012 (CDT)

"A" titles

I only remember the discussion because I started it. (You can read it here). Can you probably take off the Russian title as well (see here). --Funkychinaman 10:56, 27 May 2012 (CDT)

RE:A question about M1919

When I organised the M1919 page into sections that was a gun I couldn't identify. To be honest I'm not even sure if it is a genuine M1919 at all, as there are too many things wrong with it. The flash hider is not the one from an M1919A6 or a .303 Mk II, it has barrel mounted front and rear sights, the receiver is generally an odd shape and the pistol grip/buffer tube looks like it attaches too high on the back plate. Do you know if it is ever shown actually firing as I'm now wondering if it is a mock up. --commando552 11:58, 29 May 2012 (CDT)

Summary

When writing a summary for a movie, please write "directed by" when referring to who directed the film instead of just "by". Thanks --Ben41 12:59, 29 May 2012 (CDT)

Actor Biography

When writing actor summaries, please use the word "acted" or "appeared" instead of using the word "played". Take a look at the Franco Citti page to see how I've changed it. --Ben41 19:09, 15 June 2012 (CDT)

Actor Biography Part 2

Thanks for creating the actor pages. In the future, please make your biography summaries a little bit more specific and would be interesting to this site. Examples would be if the actor is related to another actor listed on the site, or had an interesting past employment prior to acting such as serving in the military. There is no need to add an actor summary just to say the actor acted in a lot of films. --Ben41 (talk) 21:26, 11 February 2013 (EST)

Redirects

Hey man. So I have a request. When you need to link to a particular gun that is a subsection of a larger page (such as the M1911 which is part of the M1911 pistol series), instead of putting [[M1911 pistol series#M1911|M1911]], can you simply put [[M1911]]? (I bring this up cause you used this format for the SP 2022 on Jo Prestias page). The reason for this is 2 fold. One, if the M1911 is ever moved from this page, the other format will no longer work. (Now obviously in THIS case, the M1911 is never going to be moved from the M1911 pistol series page. But we ran into this issue when we reorganized this page and had to redo EVERY page that linked to the Kimber models or the Springfield models, etc.). Secondly, if the subheading is ever changed (say from "M1911" to "Colt M1911", this link will not work any more. In either case of a change happening, the [[M1911]] redirect can simply be changed instead of having to change EVERY page. Does that make sense?? I'm trying to make this easier so that it will work better in the future. I know this is a little confusing so let me know if I don't make sense. You can also see the discussion about this in the forum. :-) --Zackmann08 10:11, 22 June 2012 (CDT)

Terrific! Thanks man. --Zackmann08 11:07, 22 June 2012 (CDT)

i don't know why I did that. I know I was planning to do something, but shortly after I deleted that photo I had a kidney stone attack and spent the next couple of weeks out of commission. Very painful and now i don't know what I was thinking. Simply can't remember. Sorry. --Jcordell 20:41, 18 July 2012 (CDT)

Hey man. Can you show me a page where Van Tu has been messing up the decimal points? --Zackmann08 08:59, 19 July 2012 (CDT)

Thanks. I posted ANOTHER warning on his discussion page and gave him a 1 day ban. If you have any more issues with him, please let me know. --Zackmann08 09:26, 19 July 2012 (CDT)
I block BOTH accounts. If you see this happening with another username, let me know. --Zackmann08 08:18, 20 July 2012 (CDT)

Page Templates

A few shortcut templates to take note of:

{{ActorF}} = [[Category:Actor]] and [[Category:Actor Female]]

{{ActorM}} = [[Category:Actor]] and [[Category:Actor Male]]

{{Film War}} = [[Category:Movie]] and [[Category:War]]

{{Film Comedy}} = [[Category:Movie]] and [[Category:Comedy]]

{{SS}} = [[Category:Screenshot]]

{{PCA}} = [[Category:Poster and Cover Art]]

Also, when writing biographies for actors, there is no need to put the actor's birthday or how many films the actor has appeared in. It is better to write about what significant movie or television series that the actor has appeared in (preferably a movie and series that is on represented on the site). --Ben41 02:28, 25 July 2012 (CDT)

FN Model 1910

You're right, sorry. (How the heck do you aim then?) Maybe a MAB Model D then? Or maybe the second cap is a continuity error? --Funkychinaman 09:43, 30 July 2012 (CDT)

Age

I don't know if that's the same as "Users under 13 are prohibited." (Think the difference between rated R and NC-17.) But I would think that could be easily rectified. But again, the issue is enforcement. We were lucky in that we this one was a ten year old with a sense of entitlement. Others may not be so forthcoming about their age. --Funkychinaman 12:53, 19 August 2012 (CDT)

AKS Image in Mercenary for Justice

I replaced the picture because I thought the Poly Tech picture had better collored handguard, stock, and grip. The AKS had more of a orange collored wood. But if you like the other AKS picture better, I can put it right back up there on that page. Thejoker (talk) 15:47, 13 December 2012 (EST)

Actually when I took a closer look, those two AK underfolders are AKMSs. They've got ribbed receiver covers, and at least one of them has a bulge in the handguard and both have AKMS folding stocks and not AKS folding stocks. Thejoker (talk) 18:01, 13 December 2012 (EST)

Sure. For what it's worth (and I'm not worried about it) my wife ,and now my daughter, are very involved with theater - okay community theater and the local university, but theater nevertheless. They always use the word play or playing or played.So that is what I was going off of. I'll message Ben41 about the langauge, but if appeared is what imfdb is going with then lets all be on the same sheet of music. --Jcordell (talk) 00:27, 5 January 2013 (EST)

Incompletes

First off, thanks for taking a look at the incomplete section. As for taking them off the incomplete list, for a lot of these, I didn't make the call.

1968 Tunnel Rats - I wasn't the one who marked it incomplete, one of the people who worked on it must've made the call.
All Quiet on the Western Front (1930) - OP left it marked as incomplete. (And the caps look like they're the wrong aspect ratio.)
Escape to Witch Mountain - OP left it marked as incomplete.
Infestation - I marked it incomplete after it was first created, no one changed it after that.
Machine Gun Preacher - All of the screencaps are from the trailer, as all of them were uploaded prior to the release date.
One in the Chamber - still needs links to actors and weapons
Outrage - OP left it marked as incomplete. I actually watched a third of the film intending to cap it, and I can tell you there's stuff missing.
Over the Edge - I didn't make the call, but looking at it, it's missing a cover and gun images.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides - - All of the screencaps are from the trailer, as all of them were uploaded prior to the release date.
Race to Witch Mountain - I didn't make the call, but looking at it, it's missing links and gun images.
Reform School Girls - OP left it marked as incomplete.
Road, The - - I didn't make the call, but looking at it, it's missing links, actor IDs, and gun images.
Texas Killing Fields - Still missing a cap for the PPK.
Transporter 2 - I wasn't the one who marked it incomplete, one of the people who worked on it must've made the call.
Winter's Bone - Ben41 last worked on it and left as incomplete. I trust his judgment.

As a matter of principle, no page that only came from trailers should be marked complete. As for the ones where the OP left as incomplete, unless I've seen the film, I'm not willing to say otherwise. In my experience, when I finished pages that looked complete like these, they're also missing something. --Funkychinaman (talk) 01:57, 21 January 2013 (EST)

As for the others, a few of them aren't available in the US, and some others are out of print. --Funkychinaman (talk) 02:14, 21 January 2013 (EST)
Thanks for finishing An Eye for an Eye. It appears to be out of print in the US. --Funkychinaman (talk) 10:35, 22 January 2013 (EST)

Mercenary for Justice, Bulgarian AK-47 Late Model?

As far as I know the Bulgarians Kalashnikovs where the AKK (Автоматический карабин Калашникова) (Type 3 AK-47), the AKKS (Автоматический карабин Калашникова сгъване) (Type 3 with under-folding buttstock), and the AKKMS (Автоматический карабин Калашникова модернизирана сгъване). I think the one with stamped receivers and ribbed receiver covers but smooth handguards that are seen might be the Hungarian FEG AK-63 F (full stock model), called AMM in Hungarian service, and FEG AK-63 D (under-folding stock model), called AMMSz in Hungarian service.

FEG AK-63 D (Hungarian version of the AKMS) - 7.62x39mm
Hungarian AMMSz - 7.62x39mm
Mercenary to the left appears to have a AKMS, possibly of Bulgarian manufacture AKKMS, the other mercenary, to the right, might have a FEG AK-63 D.
Mercenary to the right appear to be carrying a Hungarian AK-63 F. A barrel of PPSh-41 is seen in hands of a mercenary at the background.

I might be wrong but thats what I think. What do you say? Thejoker (talk) 14:01, 27 January 2013 (EST)


So may I change the page to the following:


AK-63 F

In the opening scene one of the mercenaries on the truck can be seen with a FEG AK-63 F, without the slanted muzzle brake.

Civillian version of AMM called SA-85M when imported to the U.S. in semi-auto form. - 7.62x39mm
Mercenary to the right appear to be carrying a Hungarian AK-63 F, whoutout the slanted muzzle brake. A barrel of PPSh-41 is seen in hands of a mercenary in the background.


AKMS

One of the mercenaries on the truck can be seen a Bulgarian manufactured AKM, without slanted muzzle brake.

AKMS, stamped steel receiver w/ slant muzzle brake and under-folding stock - 7.62x39mm
Mercenary to the left appears to have a Bulgarian manufactured AKMS, without the slanted muzzle brake. Other mercenary, to the right, appears to have a FEG AK-63 D.


AK-63 D

Another mercenary on the truck can be seen with what appears to be a FEG AK-63 D, without the slanted muzzle brake.

Hungarian AMMSz - 7.62x39mm
Mercenary to the right appears to have a FEG AK-63 D, AMMSz in Hungarian servie, without the slanted muzzle brake.


Also, the AK variant in Shadow Man, appear to be an AKS with darkened wood furniture. It could be either the Bulgarian variant (AKKS), Polish variants (pmK or kbk AKS), East German (MPi KmS), or Soviet (AKS). It doesn't appear to have the synthetic furniture of the Bulgarian Arsenal AR Kalashnikovs.

I undid some of his edits. Feel free to undo any edits you feel were unnecessary. I feel he may be a bit frustrated at editing Pandofini's pages, but then again, no one's forcing him to do it. --Funkychinaman (talk) 01:52, 18 February 2013 (EST)

First, thanks for your contributions. As I have mentioned to other users, please keep your actor biographies brief and somewhat relevant to the site. Because you are using an online translator, a lot of your work will not read correctly in English. I have already mentioned all of this in a previous post. --Ben41 (talk) 02:03, 18 February 2013 (EST)
You don't use a translator, do you? --Funkychinaman (talk) 02:10, 18 February 2013 (EST)
Yeah, that's what I figured, because that'd be an incredible translator and I'd ask Pandolfini to use it. --Funkychinaman (talk) 02:21, 18 February 2013 (EST)

Actors pages

Molotov or dynamite sticks are not according to the rules of nowhere guns as a separate item (weapon). Therefore it can not be used as a weapon by the actor. Then the person who threw Molotov could have a separate page, without ever touching a real gun. Do you know?--Pandolfini (talk) 05:42, 12 June 2013 (EDT) It is O.K. Greg, I also wrote previously as arms used by actors also Molotov bottles and dynamite sticks. Ben41 but logically explain to me why this is nonsense, because such "weapons" have not page for thus their identification. Therefore, the actor has only those weapons that can be referred link.--Pandolfini (talk) 14:28, 12 June 2013 (EDT)

Barnett Crossbows

If you can ID the crossbow, then I think it can stay. Otherwise, we'd just be stating the obvious. --Funkychinaman (talk) 13:05, 12 June 2013 (EDT)

Hey

You're leaving because you disagree with one rule? Come on, all of us disagree with a rule here and there, but we just roll with it. You made a lot of great pages for a lot of films that otherwise wouldn't have been here and finished a few incomplete pages that might've never gotten completed and we really appreciate that. I really wish you'd reconsider. If you don't however, I just want to thank you for everything you've done here and wish you luck. --Funkychinaman (talk) 12:50, 18 June 2013 (EDT)

I'm glad you've reconsidered and come back to us. We've all had bad days like that. As for the rules, I've never included dynamite or molotovs, but I've shoved a lot of stuff that otherwise wouldn't be included into a "trivia" or "miscellanea" section. --Funkychinaman (talk) 17:08, 18 June 2013 (EDT)

Standard Gun RA

Then it is necessary to make this weapon a separate page where you can refer to link, and this must be recognized, otherwise not. Who will do it? I am willing ... But I need to have technical data - relevant for link to link, wiki or something like that. I can not write as "bottle by 70% of the vodka supplemented with 30 ounces of kerosene and matches from Solo Sušice" :)--Pandolfini (talk) 08:10, 19 June 2013 (EDT) There are also a brilliant Finnish M/44 and Hungarian M/39 fire bottles - [[2]]--Pandolfini (talk) 14:42, 19 June 2013 (EDT) This is probably the original KS model.--Pandolfini (talk) 18:29, 19 June 2013 (EDT)

Soviet film studios

I'm a bit torn on the issue between you and Pandolfini right now. On the one hand, you're right, an independent Ukraine didn't exist prior to 1991, but to call it "Russian produced" seems just as wrong, especially since it's now a Ukrainian studio. Maybe a separate "Soviet Produced" category? --Funkychinaman (talk) 15:33, 25 June 2013 (EDT)

PPS-43 in The Last Cartridge

Thank you very much. You most probably are right, but as we are never have seen a trigger guard of this SMG, we can not say anything specifically. In principle, this can be some version of PPS under the 9mm Luger or 7,62x25mm Tokarev cartridge, but at those pictures that is available, nothing is impossible to determine specifically.

Piranha (Ohota na piran'yu)

I deliberately kept Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter as a WIP since all the screenshots were in the wrong aspect ratio. I told the user who had uploaded them about it and how to fix it, hoping he'd fix it, but nothing yet. I'm thinking about tagging it as incomplete. The problem with a poor image quality banner is that it would basically be a tacit acknowledgement of piracy, which I don't think anyone is willing to do. As for Piranha, anything you can do would be great. I'd do it myself, but it's not available here. --Funkychinaman (talk) 15:12, 3 September 2013 (EDT)
Hey, if they ever ask about possible promotions, you'd be the first guy I'd mention. I didn't realize that you were married, mainly because you contribute as much as you do. As for Pyramid Silent, we told him he needed to use better sources, and Captive does look a lot better than his previous pages, even if it is incomplete. Ultimately, that's the problem with a lot of these Eastern European/Russian films, there just aren't a lot of users who have access to them who can corroborate what's on the page. --Funkychinaman (talk) 16:12, 3 September 2013 (EDT)

Help

You put in the work, all I did was point it out. As for tools, the three new ones are delete, protect and rollback. Deletion should be pretty obvious, just click on delete and (preferably) give a reason. Rollback is basically just a one-click undo. (Personally, I prefer to do an undo so I can state a reason.) Protect isn't used as much since anonymous users aren't allowed to edit. Most pages are protected because they're high traffic or if they're being worked on by an admin. You can also ban users now, but with the new account approval system, we don't get the vandals and spammers like we used to. The list of blocked users should give you an idea of who might try to sneak back in, plus it's a fun read. I just try to enforce the rules and keep things tidy. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask. --Funkychinaman (talk) 03:01, 20 September 2013 (EDT)

I know what I'm doing...

I do possess the capability to read, you know; "Thumbnails of actor images should be right justified and set to between 400 and 500 pixels."

It's not set in stone that it should be 400px, but between 400px and 500px. Maybe now that you are an admin, you should take another look at the rules and style guide yourself... --Warejaws (talk) 14:56, 22 September 2013 (EDT)

I agree with you, 500px is too big and maybe the optimal range should be 400px to 450px, MAX. No, I don't have any objections, it just seems futile and time-consuming just to change someone else's edits that are within the database's guidelines just because someone else likes to do it the other way. Btw, sorry if I sound rude, I'm known for my straight-forwardness. --Warejaws (talk) 15:26, 22 September 2013 (EDT)
400px would be preferable. It's not a big priority to change the ones already done, but let's keep this in mind for the future. --Ben41 (talk) 15:38, 22 September 2013 (EDT)

RE: Edits in Zvezda

I can not be completely sure that the submitted rifle it's Kar98k. However, we can assume the shape of the bolt handle defining feature: in the Brest Fortress film can be seen Karabiner 98k with a straight bolt handle - it is possible that at the studio just put a new valve to replace the native (for example, due to its failure). In addition, I enjoyed the book Maxim Popenker "World War II: The gunmakers war (Vtoraya mirovaya: voyna oruzheinikov)" as the source, and in it he described the Mauser model 1933 rifle (the predecessor Kar98k) that existed in versions both straight, and with a curved handle is pressed. It is possible, too, Karabiner 98k had anything like that.

P.S.: I have a proposal that is not related to the subject of our present discussion - but just turned up the opportunity to express it... Maybe our next discussion, we'll keep on Russian? Then do not have to suffer with translation from Russian into English and vice versa - and we can write the transliteration... As you my offer?

Midsomer Murders

Unfortunately, almost all shows come apart after a few seasons but it's just part of the commitment we take on. I'm not particularly looking forward to season 7 of Homicide: Life on the Street or season 7 of Mission: Impossible either, but it's part of the body of work. You've put in a lot of work on the page, and it'd be a shame for it to sit incomplete when the show finally ends. --Funkychinaman (talk) 22:23, 3 November 2013 (EST)

Well, the ongoing banner should cover seasons that haven't been released. Have you noticed that British shows are covered almost exclusively by non-Brits? I think that's interesting. I think I've done five or six of them myself. --Funkychinaman (talk) 12:42, 4 November 2013 (EST)
I covered the entire Warner Brothers Agatha Christie series from the eighties, which included three Poirot movies. The only Peter Ustinov did six Poirot films, and I've seen five, and only because it appears that the last one was never released on DVD. I have the box set of the Jeremy Brett Sherlock Holmes series that I'm hoping to get to eventually, but I have way too much on my plate right now. I'm also waiting for them to release series 5-7 of Law & Order: UK for Region 1. I'm a bit shocked no one has done the whole Sharpe series yet. Sure, it may get repetitious, but they're all pretty good. --Funkychinaman (talk) 13:24, 4 November 2013 (EST)

Gun identification for future page "Countdown (Lichnyy nomer)"

Hi Greg, I was hoping you could help me with the following. I am almost done with a page for Countdown (Lichnyy nomer), a Russian action movie I guess you will know. I can’t identify below 3 guns which I think may be Russian. Can you please have a look and let me know? Thanks, PeeWee055 (talk) 15:53, 18 November 2013 (EST)

(1) unidentified pistol, looks like Walther P99
(1) unidentified rifle with typical front
(1) unidentified submachine gun, looks like AK-9
Thanks a lot for your help to ID the above guns. Page will be up in about a week or so, let me know what you think by then. By the way, it is an interesting experience to do a Russian movie, PeeWee055 (talk) 04:22, 19 November 2013 (EST)
Just for your info, the other guns were identified as well by Commando552. The pistol is a Anics Skif A-3000 (website in Russian for your convenience!). The second gun is Kedr PP-91 / Klin PP-9 so case closed! PeeWee055 (talk) 07:22, 19 November 2013 (EST)
Thanks for your comments but I stick with this being a real Kedr PP-91 / Klin PP-9. Reasons are that (a) it’s never seen fired so just for show and (b) the credits show that this movie was heavily supported by the Russian authorities and it shows lots of real Russian Sukhoi fighter jets, real Mil Mi-24 helicopters so I can imagine the Russian armed forces kindly supported a few guns as well for demo purpose to make the movie look cool, PeeWee055 (talk) 08:19, 20 November 2013 (EST)
Hi there, I just finished the page for Countdown (Lichnyy nomer). I think it looks okay, but could you please do me a favour and look at it 'through Russian eyes'? It's my first movie with lots of AK's and there's lots of Russian special forces in the movie that I do not know. Thanks in advance, PeeWee055 (talk) 08:09, 4 December 2013 (EST)
Thanks for your comment. I have revised to SU-30, but what is the difference with SU-27? Also, can you give names for the special forces? For now they are 'just' special forces but it looks better if we can identity, right? PeeWee055 (talk) 11:16, 4 December 2013 (EST)

A few suggestions for Russian and Soviet articles.

I'm interested in doing a few articles on Soviet, Post-Soviet and Russian movies, so, as a Russian-speaking admin, I think you should know it foremost. I even already screencapped a few. It's mostly what I listed in "To Do" list for my page, but also soviet Viy (okay, there are only flintlock firearms, but there are many of them and I want to write a few really interesting sections and already started a research), "Nu pogodi!" (do you remember 12 gauge two-barrelled and a war movies footage?) and a few others. I'm still having thoughts on Kin-dza-dza, also. Apart from tranklykators (which still can qualify for "other weapons" sections), there is also a footage from Kotovskiy on TV which may include real firearms and faux tranklykator is still suspiciously similar to some real weapons, anti-tank rifle especially. I'm researching, anyway. --Kloga (talk) 13:14, 20 December 2013 (EST)

"Ograblenie po..." also has realistic firearms in an American and Russian segments. By the way, it's one of my favorite cartoons. :)

As for animated soviet guns, I feel like I need to share results of mine research on that subject. You definitely need to see Srazhenie (Kievnauchfilm animated film based on a short story by Stephen King), Poligon which was covered on the half-abandoned kiwe.ru (I will transalte it eventually, after adapting my own article on Aprel here), both are fantastic and I hope I will be the first one to add them. ;) There are also animated series and feature films by David Cherkasskiy - here I'm sorry to disappoint you - I want to add his Treasure Island which has both decent animated firearms and live action segments with flintlocks and other good things. Also Russian Desantink Stiopochkin and Captain Pronin (weird series that include both detailed and intentionally ugly animation as a part of parody style, as well as a few recognizable firearms and an unofficial appearance of James Bond voiced by Vsevolod Abdulov) would also be allowed. In fact if you will research carefully you'll find MUCH more decent firearms in Soviet animation, because American and European animated films and series are censored hard for this and there's not a big segment of cartoon series made for mature people (of which Spawn should be included). Bit I will add 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2012 version is already here with a sudden RPG) - at least the five-episode first season has some of the most well-drawn and realistic firearms I have ever seen in the animation. As for Kin-dza-dza - I'm just researching now, If it's not eligible I'll probably made something like a sandbox or a sub-page for myself to cover things like that. --Kloga (talk) 14:21, 20 December 2013 (EST)

The fact that they're short films is a problem, I agree. But some of them have more firearms (realisitc ones - Srazhenie and Poligon guns are not generic) then some of the whole animated series in USA, that's the first moment. The second is that short animated films were much prominent then series in Soviet times, so ignoring them is generally a tendency to ignore most of Soviet animation... Which isn't seems to me as right (and probably will be so for any other Post-Soviet human being). And the third thing is that things that have running time of at least 45 minutes can be considered feature according to IMDb. A fewer Soviet series and mini-series also can be count. So Pronin, Vrungel and Treasure Island, at the very least, still qualify. Oh, and also, mind that under development of Animation at a whole on IMFDB still makes exceptions possible. I hope so, at least. I'm still planning many regular live-action articles, though. --Kloga (talk) 10:24, 21 December 2013 (EST)
For your consideration - I just bought a licensed Ukrainian DVD with Cherkasskiy's Treasure Island and a few other cartoons, including Srazhenie which I was surprised to see. --Kloga (talk) 20:08, 26 December 2013 (EST)

A weapon on the poster.

Sorry, but I don't remember any rule that restricts adding firearms seen only in promotional material since essentially promotional material of the film is still considered it's part. I'm not trying to argue with an admin, mind you. It's just that I doubt anyone will revert things like this, this, this and even this. In fact they were adding to sections, as far as I remember at least for The Terminator. Last two were added by me and no one reverted this. So why exactly unidentified revolver on Gaidai's film is anything different and should be deleted? Promotional material is actually considered a part of movie's charm in most of civilised countries and special editions DVDs are often trying to collect as much of it as possible. And so do IMFDB, for completeness. --Kloga (talk) 15:00, 24 December 2013 (EST)

Bring it up on the forum and we can discuss it there. --Funkychinaman (talk) 14:08, 25 December 2013 (EST)

Well, you see, it demonstrates, actually, that promotion is an important part of industry, which we basically can't ignore as it were in the Soviet Union. And yes, I think we SHOULD add those weapons that appear only on posters and in other promotional material, because, basically, apart from ehat I've already said, it's avoiding the confusion before it even starts. For example, no one will wrongly correct Kharatyan's personal sidearm as a Smith & Wesson revovler, because of don't remembering scene as it appears in the movie. And it should be on the page and not on a discussion, just because many tend to contribute much more then to read an chat. --Kloga (talk) 18:36, 25 December 2013 (EST)

March or Die

After watching the low-quality version via Youtube, I think the majority of the Bedouin Mauser rifles seen in the screenshots are Turkish 1903s rather than Spanish M1893s. Most have pistol-gripped stocks, tangent-leaf rear sights, and M98-pattern bolts; all features the Spanish 1893 lacks. There might be some Spanish 1893s mixed in there; I just can't tell. I'll keep working on it.--Stomper (talk) 00:44, 1 April 2014 (EDT)

There are three reasons I don't think the rifles in those screencaps are Spanish M43 rifles. First, the barrel of the M43 is 14cm shorter than that of the M1903; there is very little of the M43's barrel exposed between the handguard and the upper barrel band. The rifles in the current screencaps are too long to be M43s. Second, the front sight of the M1903 is different from the M43; the rifles in the pics have the front sight base of the M1903 rifle (which is the same sight base as the Spanish M1893). Third, the right side of the M43 stock has a long spring-steel bar that retains both the upper and lower barrel bands; the rifles in the pic don't have this bar. I do recall seeing some real Spanish M1943 rifles in the film; if I can find some better-quality video I'll make some screenshots.--Stomper (talk) 01:12, 1 April 2014 (EDT)

I don't supposed you'd be willing to take a crack at the artillery in Gunga Din and The Four Feathers (1939)? --Funkychinaman (talk) 02:17, 8 April 2014 (EDT)
I had considered that, but the gun shield throws it off. Besides, can a mountain gun be towed that that? I had assumed it was American artillery, but I believe gone through all possible American artillery pieces. --Funkychinaman (talk) 05:25, 8 April 2014 (EDT)
Oh well. Thanks. --Funkychinaman (talk) 14:06, 8 April 2014 (EDT)

I'm sorry, what do you think about this? Pyramid Silent (talk) 14:43, 12 April 2014 (EDT)

No, it's not reality-show. You can find more information here, here and here. I haven't more quality screenshots. Pyramid Silent (talk) 14:58, 12 April 2014 (EDT)
So, what do you think now? Pyramid Silent (talk) 15:17, 12 April 2014 (EDT)
Sorry me, but the first revolver absolutely not Nagant M1895. It has not monolithic rama (razmykayushchyayusya). I have converted to blank only ammo Nagant (Blef) and it has monolithic rama. It's may be Gasser 1880 (Austro-Hungarian revolver, book autored Alexandr Borisovich Zhuk (2001), page 38). About another, you are right. Pyramid Silent (talk) 15:45, 12 April 2014 (EDT)

Since you seem to be that guy..

By that, I mean the guy that handles most of the deletions, I actually have a request in that regard. I had helped Ben on setting up the Criminal Minds separate season pages, and had put a lot of the older screenshots on the original page's talk page so they could be there as a reference if need be. That was some time ago though, and I think Ben's pretty much replaced all those older caps with much better ones with more proper filenames. I'd like to take a gander through them first but once done, think you could delete all those old screencaps, since they're really doing nothing at this point but taking up space?

Will do. Thanks much. StanTheMan (talk)
Replaced '...ragnbu' with the newer image. It can go now too. Thanks again. StanTheMan (talk) 16:15, 12 April 2014 (EDT)

Screenshots

I'll PM you via the forum. --Funkychinaman (talk) 17:16, 12 April 2014 (EDT)

Old Revolver

Hello, Greg-Z! I have one question: what do you think, what is it? I can only say, that's not Nagant M1895. Maybe Lefaucheux? Or Webley? One man from Russia found it at the marsh. Peat saved it from rusting. More information here: video from YouTube. But I can't identified it. Pyramid Silent (talk) 06:28, 24 April 2014 (EDT)

Zombie Self-Defense Force

Hello, Greg-Z! I'm sorry, whot do you think about that? Pyramid Silent (talk) 14:19, 16 May 2014 (EDT)

Tokarev

O K. However, it is also possible to help with the identification of weapons?--Pandolfini (talk) 03:30, 1 June 2014 (EDT) Thx very much, Greg! And "unknown revolver"?--Pandolfini (talk) 06:07, 1 June 2014 (EDT)

Kommissar Rex - Season 1

Hi Greg, just noticed that you deleted the page for this TV series for reasons of copyright violation. It's probably okay, but I am very curious to know what exactly was the violation. The TV show was one of my favorites when I was younger so when I saw the page, I spend some time making (many) corrections on the grammar, removing spoilers and putting remarks. Thanks for letting me know what happened here, PeeWee055 (talk) 12:24, 1 June 2014 (EDT)

Shadow of the Wolf

Thanks! And what can you say about Kroomak's rifle? Pyramid Silent (talk) 11:25, 6 June 2014 (EDT)

I know, that also present book with the same title. Autor Robert Stillmark Pyramid Silent (talk) 12:11, 6 June 2014 (EDT)
I'm mistake. Not Stillmark, but another autor. I forgot his name. Pyramid Silent (talk) 12:13, 6 June 2014 (EDT)
Maybe the last rifle is Winchester? Pyramid Silent (talk) 12:28, 6 June 2014 (EDT)
Hello, Greg-Z! I rewatch the Shadow of the Wolf, and I think, that the Kroomak's gun is Indian musket (firearm of the Native Americans). What do you think about that. Is I right? Pyramid Silent (talk) 07:23, 7 June 2014 (EDT)
