RE: "Lightning Rifle"

Yes, there is actually. The lightning rifle is not a real firearm, nor is it based on a real firearm. It only fires thanks to post production visual effects. This site is about firearms. Not bombs, not knives, not lasers. --ManiacallyChallenged 23:47, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Eh, I'd include it in there, hand grenades, knives, etc are in other pages & they're not really firearms. But, if you feel that strongly about it, I'm cool. Tommyt 16:29, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

Re: Talk:Schindler's List

It's a Walther PPK and the hunting rifle is either a Mauser Gewehr 1898 or a Flintlock Rifle as it was the common hunting rifle. - Kenny99 22:24, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

  • Also you may need to add some screenshots to make people help you. - Kenny99 14:26, 18 August 2009 (UTC)*****
    • If I knew how to add screenshots I would. Never learned how... pointers? Tommyt 03:19, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
      • If you don't know how, here's how to post sceenshots. First, you need to get softwares like SnagIt8 to take screenshots.Then when you learn how and after install of software, use this as an example:
  • Image:imagename.picture format(jpg,png,etc)|thumb|600px(keep it at 600 for a start)|none|(your caption).

Paste on a page. Click on it. Browze for your screenshot. Press enter. Here's a format you can copy and paste.

So here is your reply. - Kenny99 20:11, 19 August 2009 (UTC)


You wrote: (adding a page for 1900, there are MANY more guns in this film, please list 'em & get screen shots.) So basically you want OTHER people to list the guns and to the screenshots. Sorry, but you created the page. We have a rule that you take primary responsibility for a page if you create it. Sure, other people can adopt it, but essentially demanding that others do the work will probably lead to the page's deletion. IMFDB is 'strange that way' ;) MPM2008

Just wanted to invite others to contribute, perhaps I should have worded it differently, apologies. Also, I haven't really learned how to do screenshots or adding pics that aren't already in the dbase. I haven't had the time to learn it - I know, sounds like a typical excuse but I honestly haven't.

BTW (a point that is good to remember) you don't answer comments or questions posted to YOUR talk page, by responding on your own talk page. You respond to the person who queried you, on THEIR talk page. Check the page history if they don't leave a sig line with a link. Here, you're talking to yourself, technically.

logging out

Yeah, that's a phenomenon that happens on IMFDB and I don't know why, but the site sometimes auto logs you out pretty fast, so all your contributions are just attributed to an IP address. When I am making important changes, I check to see if I'm still logged in. I see tons of edits that I think are from veteran members or MODs. But since there are pages which are locked from anonymous changes, we'll figure it out eventually.  :) I was editing a page that I myself locked from anonymous users and then I couldn't save my own changes! hahaha.
