A reminder when adding descriptions to guns, please use the established format in writing them down (adding the picture of the gun, the name of the gun and hyperlinking it). Take a look at such pages as Full Metal Jacket or NCIS for properly formatted examples. Also, if you are unsure what the particular gun is in your screencap, please post these in the discussion page instead of on the actual page. Thanks. --Ben41 04:54, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Thank you. I am new to using the wiki protocols. I hope to get better. And thanks to Predator for making this talk page for me. Also I'm just starting to figure a few things out. such as proper tags, and formatting and thumbnails. I'll get it, just give me a bit to get my head wrapped around it. --Mark_in_tx

Ruckus (1981)

Just finished watching Ruckus. I'm going to grab screen shots after I convert it to an easier format. The movie stars Dirk Benedict and Linda Blair, with Richard Farnsworth as the Sheriff. The movie is also known as Ruckus in Madoc County. --Mark_in_tx

Wrong formatting

Please correct the formatting on Ruckus (1981), especially the picture files. These need to be thumbnailed, in orders the "thumb|none|300px" needs to be added to the edit code (because of the low quality, 300px-400px is preferable). The correct way to format a picture should look like this: [[File:Ruckus 1.jpg|thumb|none|300px|Deputy Dave ([[John Van Ness]]) appears to carry a Remington 870 with a 28" barrel and the 3 round magazine.]] >

I've done the first one for you, but please change the rest (including on the discussion page). You may want to separate the pump action shotguns categories more specifically as well. --Ben41 19:01, 7 May 2011 (CDT)


If you think you know what a weapon in a screencap is, try comparing it to the stock images on the site to make a positive ID instead of just putting that "it might be a such-and-such". That is essentially telling the reader that they have to figure it out on their own, which kind of defeats the purpose of this site. Also, look at how weapon sections on pages such as Heat are laid out; the specific weapon name, a general description ("Joe uses a gun X during scene Y") with a link to the proper weapon page, then a stock image listing the weapon's name and caliber/gauge, then the screencaps.--PistolJunkie 19:21, 7 May 2011 (CDT)

Thank you

I'd like to thank Ben41 and PistolJunkie for their help on the editingon Ruckus. I came back to it tonight after getting some sleep and found you had done the edits. I'm still learning my way around the formatting of the wiki, and I'm trying to compare weapons to start on IDing them properly and attributing them. Unfortunately I've only got a very low resolution copy of the movie off of YouTube, and it's the english and german editions merged together, with different resolutions for each. If you have any recommendation for video software which will allow me to go actual frame by frame instead of trying to hit the pause button on my keyboard to try to get the best view, I would appreciate it. As for the sheriff's shotgun I have a High Standard k121 Flite King Riot Gun, which has the 18 1/8 inch barrel with the 5 shot mag tube and my mag tube looks exactly the same way as his. --Mark_in_tx

there are two ways around it; (A) download and reencode the videos into AVI format then use either VLC or WMPC (packaged as part of the CCCP) to take screenshots (most users here use VLC, but I personally find the WMPC interface to be much more accommodating), or (B) get ahold of the physical DVD from either Amazon or NetFlix (nothing beats a DVD source save for BluRay, and both of those media players are great resources when you have the DVD as well). As for the shotgun, if that's the case then photograph it and upload an image of it.--PistolJunkie 00:01, 8 May 2011 (CDT)

New Page

Hey, Predator20 hasn't been on in a while, but I can help you out. You can take your time and work on the page on the discussion page. Once you're done, you can cut and paste onto the real page, just let me know if you need help. You can also reference the IMFDB Page Templates page, the IMFDB Screencapping Guide, and the IMFDB Style Guide. The page templates page can be helping if you need help coding. If you have any questions, please let me know. --Funkychinaman (talk) 21:29, 21 July 2016 (EDT)
