Hello and welcome to IMFDB, now read the rules
The rules state that a page must have at least ONE REAL firearm on it and that firearm must be plot relevant or it does not qualify to be on IMFDB and will be deleted. The same goes for any page which does not have screencaps either. If you need help, please post requests for assistance on the main page and there are many IMFDB members who are willing to help with suggestions. MoviePropMaster2008
Zombie Killer, did you not read the above comment? One tranquilizer pistol doesn't constitute a firearm. You have been warned. --Ben41 08:40, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
Ok thanks for the message put I don't no how to delete this page
- Thanks for your cooperation, Zombie Killer 1995. :) MoviePropMaster2008 20:28, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
Poster screencap for Zombie Diaries
Whenever possible we strive for a screencap of the actual theatrical release poster instead of the DVD release. Other than that the page looks fine. Read the rules where it sattes that your page can be edited by other users. Nothing personal. I've had several of my pages edited over the past couple of years.Just want to make sure there are no misunderstandings and welcome. --Jcordell 15:51, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
I'm the one who keeps changing it Zombie Killer. You need to read the Rules, Standards and Principles for imfdb. However I'll help you out by posting the applicable RSP here for you to read.
DVD artwork, Box Covers or Theatrical Poster requirements
When you create a page, the least you should do is get a copy of the movie's poster or in the case of videogames, the official box cover. DVD covers and re-released Movie posters are acceptable but the original release cinema poster is preferred, if a good quality image of that can be found. For television shows the DVD cover or promotional art is acceptable.
IMFDB is an information resource, not our private playgroundThis is a source of Information for weapons and movie buffs around the world. Certainly it is tempting to think of IMFDB as one's own personal 'playground' but please realize that we do this work to serve others. It is harsh on one's ego to be corrected or to have one's information proven wrong, but it will always be in the best interests of IMFDB to maintain a high level of scholarly achievement in our analysis and documentation of the two worlds of firearms and film (which includes television and Anime as well as other visual media like Video Games).
Regardless if you create the page or not it isn't your page. This is a wiki page and it can be edited by anyone. I'm well within the rules by changing it to the cinema release poster. Your belligerent attitude is not necessary and uncalled for. --Jcordell 06:58, 26 October 2011 (CDT)
I wouldn't have deleted the Friends page, but since you had removed all the content. I figured you wanted me to. --Predator20 17:40, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
re-uploading existing images
Don't upload thumbnail images that we already have on the site. (Colt Python etc) Use what we already have and thumbnail them to the size you want. --Predator20 20:25, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
- Huh? What are you doing? Zombie Killer 1995? You're uploading the Python pic again. You don't need to do that. You can RESIZE the original pic to whatever thumbnail size you want. If you need help doing this, please ask and we'll help. MoviePropMaster2008 20:31, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
Resizing, yes that's fine, but don't go over 500px on stock gun pics. Most keep them below 400px. On your personal page you can blow them up to 1000px if you want. --Predator20 20:38, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
What the problem is
The problem is that you are making pages that are not up to the minimum standards. Some examples:
1. Alien: the flamethrower used was NOT the M240 used in Aliens. This page will be modified so you have an example on how it should look. If you are unsure, please use the discussion page to post questions.
2. Phoenix Nights as well as some of your other pages are not in the proper format established. Please refer to a previously made page such as Resident Evil: Apocalypse or Saving Private Ryan to see how movie pages are formatted.
3. Your filenames are too long. You've uploaded several poster and cover images that need to be renamed for you upload.
Also, please show some respect to the moderators who just want to help you. A banning of privileges could be administered for disrespectful behavior to moderators or even other users. --Ben41 22:32, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
Yes, a custom flamethrower was used, but it was NOT the one that you indicated was used. It would be have been more correct to put "custom flamethrower" or similar in design to the one used in Aliens. --Ben41 00:46, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
M870 and M11 pic
We already have stock images of these guns. Please use the images we have instead of uploading duplicates.--PistolJunkie 22:38, 9 December 2010 (UTC)
You can't, only administrators and moderators can. If you need to mark something for deletion add [[Category:Delete]] to it. With images you click edit and add it the same way you would do a page.--Predator20 23:33, 9 December 2010 (UTC)
In the future, please try to find higher quality sources for your screenshots. It was very difficult trying to identify the weapons due to the quality. A good screen capture program is called Fast Stone Image Viewer. Also, please write your own synopsis of the film and do not copy from other sources. --Ben41 07:13, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
That incomplete tag is on there because the pages do not have screecaps. Once it has them, the tag can be taken off.--Predator20 22:55, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
Not only do we already have images for all the guns you uploaded for the Zombies of Mass Destruction page, but it appears that all the stock images that you uploaded are just lower-quality copies of the ones we already have. Please do not upload new gun images if we already have them here.--PistolJunkie 20:26, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
Not to beat a dead horse here, but another thing is that IMFDB doesn't allow wholesale plagiarism of movie synopses at the top of the movie page. Though it is short, your synopsis of Zombies of Mass Destruction, is lifted directly from the first tagline from IMDB. This is explicitly stated in IMFDB rules that you must write out your own synopsis or summary in your own words. MoviePropMaster2008 21:52, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, got to have them to keep the site going. They know it's causing some problems and are trying to get it fixed. --Predator20 22:00, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
== Zombies of Mass Destructiono
Don't know, they aren't my guns so no idea what scopes they are. The M4A1 has a red-dot, which is made for quicker aiming, verses a scope for precision. You usually get what you pay for when it comes to scopes.--Predator20 10:27, 14 May 2011 (CDT)
Zombie Diaries Discussion page
Why did you blank it? Others might have found that discussion interesting. Therefore I restored it. You created the page, but it isn't yours exclusively.--Jcordell 17:18, 20 June 2011 (CDT)
Please do not Blank movie discussion pages.
As what was discussed before, please do not blank the discussion pages for movies, even if you did create them. You are only allowed to blank your own user page and the corresponding discussion page. --Ben41 21:33, 20 June 2011 (CDT)
The revision history and the recent changes pages record who has last modified a page. --Ben41 17:21, 23 June 2011 (CDT)
