Miami Supercops

Thanks for adding a shotgun image to the page. Only a single minor correction: please use "none", not "left", as this makes more correct page layout. With best wishes, Greg-Z (talk) 14:09, 15 January 2016 (EST)

Infobox movie

What is it you're trying to do? --Funkychinaman (talk) 11:36, 5 February 2016 (EST)

I'm trying to create a movie page for a western comedy movie .MacGuns 659|talk

You can try going to IMFDB Page Templates. It's pretty much all the code you'll need, you just need to substitute in file names, descriptions and captions. --Funkychinaman (talk) 13:11, 5 February 2016 (EST)

OK ,thank you very much MacGuns 659|talk

I changed the title (always check with IMDb first) and tweaked a few things, but an otherwise great first effort. --Funkychinaman (talk) 09:40, 6 February 2016 (EST)
A very good work, my congratulations. I had this movie in my To-Do list, and if you don't mind, I will add several screenshots, like a very close view of Terence Hill's Colt Navy. I also have a guess that there are some other rifles except Winchester 1892. Greg-Z (talk) 10:04, 6 February 2016 (EST)

Thanks!!! I haven't finished this yet, but you complete it if you want. About the rifles i wasn't sure but they looked like 1892 to me. I need to do a closer inspection. (MacGuns 659 (User talk:MacGuns 659|talk]])

I'll wait until you would finish the page and then maybe I'll add something. Only please put a tag {{WIP}} on top of the page when you are still working on it. Greg-Z (talk) 11:47, 6 February 2016 (EST)

Ok ,I'll do it right now . Thanks for your help (MacGuns 659 (User talk:MacGuns 659|talk]])

I don't have time to finish the page now. The screencaps are all in a folder i just need to upload them. I'll finish it tomorrow.I'm sorry.:-( (MacGuns 659 (User talk:MacGuns 659|talk]])

No problems, nobody here would hurry you. Good luck! Greg-Z (talk) 12:29, 6 February 2016 (EST)

Done! I still think it needs a revision thought and I think some screencaps are missing.(MacGuns 659 (User talk:MacGuns 659|talk]])

Hello again, I completed the page. Greg-Z (talk) 03:25, 20 February 2016 (EST)

Perfect! Great editing work! (MacGuns 659 (User talk:MacGuns 659|talk]])

Quantity Limit

Please follow the rule of Quantity Limit: "You should never have any reasons to post 10 screenshots of the same weapon over and over again." There is already more than ten images of Colt Navy and Winchester, and more are coming, so please reduce these number. For example, TRBL-CNAVY4.jpg and File:TRBL-CNAVY7.jpg show a very similar view of the same revolver, while TRBL-CNAVY5.jpg and TRBL-CNAVY8.jpg doesn't show the gun at all. Another example: TRBL-WIN 6.jpg is covered by a better view of the same scene on TRBL-WIN 7.jpg where the rifle is seen more clear. So please revise the screenshots and reduce their number to 10 images per gun. Thanks. Greg-Z (talk) 03:46, 7 February 2016 (EST)

Ok, I'll change it right now .Sorry for the problems. MacGuns 659 (talk)

No problems, really. You can put the excessive screenshots on the movie talk page so none of your work would be wasted. Greg-Z (talk) 04:00, 7 February 2016 (EST)

RE: Last Action Hero

For the record I'm not sure what the difference is between the standard Bren Ten and the Peregren Falcon in the first place, so an elaboration would be nice there. That said, that image doesn't give us enough detail to distinguish the difference between the two; They both simply look like two-tone Bren Tens, and it's typically preferred we use a higher quality image of something close than a poor image that's exact unless the latter is all we have. StanTheMan (talk) 16:47, 26 July 2016 (EDT)

The difference beetween the standard and the Peregrine Falcon is a decocker lever on the slide and an ambidextrous frame mounted safety. The only clue I have to distinguish it is the stepping in the frame.

Here you can see the circled parts are unique to the Peregrine Falcon. However I'm wondering how the armorers got the Bren Ten Peregrine Falcon,since, as far as I know,was only produced in a couple of prototypes. (MacGuns 659 (talk))

I looked again and did notice the ambi safety on the gun image, definitely a distinguishable detail. Appreciate noting those distinctions. Would be nice if we could get a better picture but as you said, it wasn't really made in quantity, so there it is. Now granted I'm no overriding authority, but as far as I'm concerned, you can revert and use that image. Would be good to note the differences in the safety and decocker on the page for reference. Also, for future reference, you make replies to a user on their talk page (like you did the first time) as they get an automatic notification there and thus know when you make a response. Also signatures are typically done with the signature code, which is this ~~~~, minus the 'nowiki' tags - it automatically posts links to your pages as well as a timestamp, it's usually a bit easier (there is a button for it at the top of the edit window as well).

Ok thanks for the tips.MacGuns 659 (talk) 20:57,27 July 2016 (EST)
