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.

If you have any questions, feel free to post them here but make sure to sign your post by typing --~~~~.

Finally, IMFDB has a forum set up here that is only available to registered members. There is lots of good stuff to see there. If you would like to join the forum, please post HERE and an account will be created for you.

Now, HAPPY EDITING! bunni (talk) 14:17, 28 September 2017 (EDT)

File Names

Such file names as "Pistol.jpg" or "Shotgun-0.jpg" are too generic and so unacceptable. Please use the title of the media in file names, like "Thing 2002-Pistol.jpg". Thanks. Greg-Z (talk) 00:54, 30 September 2017 (EDT)

RE: File Names

Sorry, I'm new to this. I've done that on all the pictures I uploaded, thanks for the heads up. Ssantusky (talk) 13:45, 30 September 2017 (EDT)

PM2

Apparently it's derived from the SS2 assault rifle, which didn't start testing until 2003 and didn't enter production until 2005, so minimum date for the PM2 to exist would be 2003. Evil Tim (talk) 09:18, 2 October 2017 (EDT)

Pages

Rather than continuing to create pages and then leaving them in WIP, please focus on finishing one page at a time. By my count, you've been here less than a week, started three pages, and have finished zero. Please hold off on resurrecting the EndWar page until you've finished the others. Thanks. --Funkychinaman (talk) 21:14, 4 October 2017 (EDT)

Images

Please don't use youtube screencaps with annotations from the uploader on them like that pic of RAXA. Evil Tim (talk) 18:13, 6 October 2017 (EDT)

RE: Tomb Raider Last Revelation

Glad to help. I'll take another gander when I get a free minute but from what I remember that one assault gun really didn't have anything specific to it.. might be better to just label it as a generic assault carbine or by whatever it's called in-game. Sometimes some things just can't be ID'd but can be left in for the sake of completeness on the page. Again though, I'll take another look and see if what you say about it being a HK receiver is true and if so, eh go from there I guess. StanTheMan (talk) 15:11, 7 October 2017 (EDT)

BG-15

That image is tiny, of very poor quality, and it doesn't show anything useful in identifying the launcher. Evil Tim (talk) 11:19, 1 July 2018 (EDT)

Yeah I saw that one, I have a feeling it might be an Airsoft CAW BG-15. Didn't the real BG-15 have a wooden grip? Evil Tim (talk) 11:50, 1 July 2018 (EDT)
Be very careful adding information from military-today that you can't cross-reference from somewhere else, it's not very reliable since that one writer BLACKTAIL is kind of a nut (check out his Youtube page "Blacktaildefense" if you want to see why you shouldn't trust him). But sure, I think that one might be a BG-15. Evil Tim (talk) 12:34, 1 July 2018 (EDT)
This might be a better bet, that other one looks suspiciously new for a Soviet prototype from the 70s. Evil Tim (talk) 12:50, 1 July 2018 (EDT)

RE: Cut Weapons

It's fine, it's not a big issue (and not really a strict rule), it's just that they're best kept off the main page and left in talk pages, if they're merely found in game files. Cut weapons that were actually seen in official trailers are definitely welcome, though. --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 15:55, 11 September 2019 (EDT)
