Devils Rejects

Nice work Screencapping the Devil's rejects, try and get the rest of the weapons on there if you can -even if there are no clear shots of it in the movie, still screencap it as proof it is in the movie. Also when you upload screencaps capture the whole frame of the movie so that the screencap sizes will be consistent. --AdAstra2009 04:57, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

RE Day of the Dead

Yeah, those screen caps were horrid weren't they lol.

The Thing

GJ on The Thing, just remember the general rule of trying to keep all screencaps the same size on the page(also try to capture the whole frame). Feel free to replace Fimvit's Screenshots as they are awfully small and look poor in comparison to yours. --AdAstra2009 01:36, 22 September 2009 (UTC)

RE The Thing

Well its not a big deal if the black bars are showing, some people like GM45 don't like it ,but it's still good as the screencap sizes would be consistent. If you want to get rid of the black bars -go into MS Paint and use the rectangular select tool to select everything but the black bars, then go to Image>Crop (in the Menu Bar). --AdAstra2009 04:16, 22 September 2009 (UTC)

Night of The Living Dead

GJ screencapping the 1968 Night of the Living Dead, I was waiting for someone to screencap that -now all of the pages for George A. Romero's films in his Dead series have been completed. --AdAstra2009 03:52, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

RE Night of The Living Dead

Your going to do They Live!! I F****ng love that movie!!!!!!!, just too hard for me to find a copy -I'm looking forward to it. --AdAstra2009 04:05, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

RE They Live

GJ on the page, it looks great. --AdAstra2009 20:36, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

Sorry if you're offended

Don't take it personally. But one of the things which irk the mods the most are members uploading endless new pics of guns we already have. Also 99.99% of the shots uploaded are pirated shots and that UNDOES the work that people like me are trying to do, get our own LICENSED images, not used pirated gun images from other people's websites (we've been notified by several copyright owners of copyright violation and have had to remove 'jacked' gun pics. ) You upload TONS of new pics and that makes us wary, since we've counted several that are not necessary since we already have our own pics of the gun. MT2008 has already asked you once why you uploaded an image of guns that we already have. I don't know if you answered or not. The rule is, if we already have the pic, don't overload the server with unnecessary images. (The entire screencap controversy is something completely separate from this, we have various members with different ideas as to how many screencaps are needed on a page, but that is another debate that others are having and isn't relevant to your query). The issue is not one of making mistakes. You didn't make any sort of technical error or misidentified anything. But we expect members to check to see if an image is needed BEFORE they upload a new one. Some of the members in the past have irritated the Mods and other members by uploading all their own images of guns for pages they create, when pre-existing images are already there. If the NEW pics are markedly BETTER than the previous ones than it is understandable, but if the image is crappier than the one already here, we have to wonder what is that person's motivation is or if they are just being careless. But we will continue to delete unnecessary images. There is just too much new activity by new members to walk on eggshells with everyone. Sorry if it seemed as if anyone singled you out.

Edit, thanks for the note. You were right. Direct communication to your talk page would have been the more appropriate thing to do. My apologies. MoviePropMaster2008 07:13, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

RE: Thanks

No problem, let me know if you need anything else.--Alienqueen11 22:03, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up

I was planning on building up a 38 super pistol just so that we could have a good picture of that gun. Sure I don't like people photoshopping my pics together, but it isn't as bad as it once was (a lot of people seemed to be doing it and I put my foot down). Now a vast majority of the membership knows that I dont' like it, so I've calmed down alot more about it ;) About the creator, he's young (and might be slightly slow) so I'm very forgiving and are careful not to be mean. In fact, if a user is super young chronologically or 'young in mind' ;) I NEVER bash them. In fact I'm extra gentle on them..... You KNOW I'm consider you like an equal when I'm rough on you! hahahaha. I figure 'smart adults' can take the abuse! hahahaha. the other exception is smart and world wise minors who can hold their own. LOL Thanks again for the heads up. It was very much appreciated. I'll wait until I get a real pic of the thing, which I think I can do! :) MoviePropMaster2008 00:58, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

Jeremiah Johnson

Located a photo of a Hawken rifle. Added it to the page. Also added the film to a couple categories. Glad to see you're doing this page. I've been wanting to screencap it, but I went with a remodel on Big Jake instead. The way I do a page it takes me hours so I pick and choose.--Jcordell 22:26, 11 December 2009 (UTC)


If you need to add one. http://www.imfdb.org/index.php?title=Template:Quote or discuss http://www.imfdb.org/index.php?title=Template_talk:Quote AdAstra went to basic so he may not be back for awhile. --Predator20 05:23, 26 January 2010 (UTC)


When you're screencapping, make sure that you have your aspect ratio set to "auto" or 16:9 (if widescreen). That way your captures will not look squashed.--Ben41 02:44, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

Eagle has landed

You have real M2s in your screencaps. I checked out the screencaps and MOST of those are legitimate M2 carbines. You can tell by the selector switch on the left side. On the right sight if you can see a little nubb near the chamber area, it's an M2. Of course M2s are anachronistic in a WW2 film. The M2 was developed in the first part of 1945, it usually takes a YEAR for approval by the Dept of Defense (or War Dept in the 1940s) to actually get examples to the soldiers in the field. So there would be NO M2s in combat before the war ended.

Regarding my proclamation, I was speaking of U.S. Movie gun Armories. I suppose I should have put in the caveat that British Armories have tons of WW2 and Post WW2 stuff and could have way more of the M2s than American Movie gun inventories. Since the Eagle Has Landed was filmed entirely in the U.K. their armorers were used. So you have one of the few instances of true M2 Carbines in a film. I suppose any film done in Great Britain could have them. We HAVE them in the U.S., but I was particularly looking for them back in 2009 and realized that there hardly ANY amongst the major gun warehouses in Hollywood. There ARE a few converted M1 Carbines, but those technically aren't M2s. Also those act just like MP40s, meaning that they're either on Safe or firing full auto, no semi auto. :) MoviePropMaster2008 05:25, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

No black bars!!!

Dude! IMFDB says NO BLACK BARS on screenshots! :D Excellent work but crop those pics soldier! :D MoviePropMaster2008 05:02, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

RE I posted a reply

I saw your reply earlier. Don't worry about the whole Dynamite page, I made my fair share of stupid pages when I was new to this site also. :) --AdAstra2009 20:38, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
