Ghost Recon

I didn't mind it, thanks for letting me know ^^ Conedotexe (talk) 09:28, 23 July 2017 (EDT)

Jolly roger

As a note, "jolly roger" is a term for all pirate flags, not just the traditional skull and crossbones, so I figured I'd be specific. Plus, we've already said "jolly roger" once in that sentence. Evil Tim (talk) 02:30, 26 October 2017 (EDT)


It's called "Krytac Trident LMG-E" and that's official name. I'm pretty sure you used the name from this Evike page, but you didn't read the description of it (which don't has any "MKII" in it) and in the official page you can see "MKII Series" tab with only PDW, SRB and SPR types and LMG is not part of it. Ubisoft used real designation (for an airsoft gun) in Rainbow Six Siege instead of "MK249" from Ghost Recon Wildlands. While it's minor and airsoft, I used proper name in my edit.

I would but...

A certain someone has already declared an intention to fart around with it, and you know what happens when he does that. I could unlock it temporarily if there's some specific thing you want to do with it? Evil Tim (talk) 09:49, 17 December 2017 (EST)

Ok, moved it and unprotected it for 24 hours. Evil Tim (talk) 10:59, 17 December 2017 (EST)

Day of the Dead (2008) edits

Just curious. What motivated you to change the Bulgarian AR (AK clone) in the film to an original AK47. Is there any article or information that backs this up? Since this film was shot in Bulgaria I find it very unusual that they would have an original Soviet battlefield AK47 when they themselves make tons of AK clones that look just like the firearm in the screencaps. Thanks. :D MoviePropMaster2008 (talk) 19:11, 11 January 2018 (EST)

Fuze and fuse

From what I've read this is a clip / magazine thing: fuse is either "circuit breaker" or "burning wick," while fuze is "mechanical detonator." Evil Tim (talk) 12:01, 2 May 2018 (EDT)


Yeah, I remember recommending you this movie (frankly, we're overdue for another one in this vein). As for its horrific nature and its infamous final scene, you can at least rest assured that in studies of radiation exposure and unborn babies (such as after the Japanese atomic bombings and the Chernobyl incident), babies with radiation-induced birth defects generally don't survive to be born. Yes, leaving the question of who fired nukes first ambiguous would also fit the theme of "We all lose" better. Did you get to watch The Day After or By Dawn's Early Light as well?

If you're still up for reading more about how close we are to nuclear annihilation (the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists' "Doomsday Clock" puts us at a mere 100 seconds to midnight) you may want to get copies of the books titled How the End Begins by Ron Rosenbaum and Command and Control by Eric Schlosser. The Cold War may officially be over, but the doomsday machine (if you will) is still active, especially with Russia boasting about their new nuclear superweapons like "Status 6" and the like. --Mazryonh (talk) 14:40, 12 May 2021 (EDT)


A few questions about yoor addition of the L98A2 category, firstly are you sure that image is of an L98A2, as all examples I have seen have the newer full polymer A2 handguards. Secondly, which variant did you mean this to be, as the L98A2 is not manually opperated, it is semi only with the normal gas system. The manual gun is the L98A1. Lastly, what makes you think the guns in Blood Red Sky are L98A2s? The only difference would be the markings and lack of a selector which is not visible in any of the screenshots. --commando552 (talk) 05:23, 2 August 2021 (EDT)

Supergirl season 5 edit

Just wondering what you edited on the Supergirl season 5 page, as it didn’t say what was changed clearly. -Chrish13

I changed the optic name in the M4 example pic's caption to the company name (Aimpoint CompM2). That model of optic was replaced as the "M68" beginning in around 2014 when the Army started buying the newer CompM4 model instead. It's a bit of a pet peeve of mine that I'm a little OCD about. Spartan198 (talk) 03:20, 5 September 2022 (UTC)

By the way, would you know any way to get screenshots of the show itself as I know IMFDB doesn’t like pages without screenshots, but I can only access it on Netflix, where screenshots aren’t allowed. Just wondering. -Chrish13

Sorry, not sure. I mostly do video game pages since current consoles have built-in screen capture functions. The few TV shows and movies I've contributed to have been by PRNT SCRN via streaming service or DVD and painstakingly erasing any HUD elements in Paint.

Forum Account

Forum account I can't find you. I've looked in the member's list and there is no Spartan198 on the member list. I went into the moderator feature, and it shows you as a registered member awaiting e-mail confirmation. Your posting history is there, but you don't show as a registered user on the forum I tried changing you to a registered user and that wasn't successful. I tried adding you to my contact list and that wasn't successful either. Have you reached out to Bunni? I suspect this is a problem more suited for him. Sorry I'm stumped. --Jcordell (talk) 06:51, 23 January 2023 (UTC)

What kind of error message are you getting? Are you able to log in? --Funkychinaman (talk) 00:13, 20 March 2023 (UTC)
I changed your group to Registered Users. Did that fix the problem? --Funkychinaman (talk) 00:15, 20 March 2023 (UTC)
The procedure to request an account is still the same, AFAIK, I'm still the one manually processing the requests. The only difference is that the link the forum is gone in favor of Discord, which is livelier than the forum ever was. --Funkychinaman (talk) 04:54, 20 March 2023 (UTC)

Template:Red Dead Series

May I ask, why did you revert my edits to Template:Red Dead Series with "Made it proper." as the edit reason? --Wuzh (talk) 00:22, 28 February 2023 (UTC)

If you're talking about the =See Also= headings, I can put it back on the template, while still using the newer {{Navbox}} navbox creation template (which standardizes navbox creation, and avoids the jank "nbsp"s).

While I personally prefer not putting headings in navbox templates (it makes things messy if we want to stack multiple navbox templates on the same page, since each of them will have their own =See Also= heading), I can make some exceptions for now if people prefer it that way. --Wuzh (talk) 00:35, 28 February 2023 (UTC)

Sure thing. Thank you for your understanding. --Wuzh (talk) 00:48, 28 February 2023 (UTC)

A Question

Glock pistol mounted in CAA Micro RONI.
SIG-Sauer P226 mounted in CAA RONI-SI1.
What appears to be a SIG-Sauer P226 mounted in a CAA Micro RONI is seen in the hands of Garrick (Urijah Faber) in the foreground.
Garrick (Urijah Faber), one of Burke's mercenaries, uses what appears to be a SIG-Sauer P226 mounted in a CAA Micro RONI.

Does the firearm in this photo look like a CAA Roni SI1 or CAA Micro Roni, because the users who edited the article for the 2018 movie Rampage, said that the firearm, Urijah Faber was wielding was CAA Roni SI1, but I think it’s a CAA Micro Roni because of the rectangular hanguard, while the CAA Roni SI1 has a more rounded hndguard. What do you think?

Titles that begin with "The"

Regarding the titling of The Last of Us and The Last of Us Part II, we recently changed IMFDB's rules on titling pages that begin with "The" (see Style Guide); we no longer physically move the titles to have "The" placed at their ends. Instead, we make use of the DEFAULTSORT magic word (see MediaWiki documentation) containing a "The"-relocated version of the title to fix their sortings. This way, the pages will be able to keep their actual real life titles (with "The" at the front), which makes wiki editing and other back end management easier. --Wuzh (talk) 22:39, 24 August 2023 (UTC)


Hi. In regards to your edit on the AA: Proving Grounds page, the coyote tan controls aren't exclusive to the XM17 and XM18. Early military-issued M17 and M18 pistols did have such controls (here are some links: [1], [2], [3]), only to be later replaced with versions with black controls. By the way, in case you missed it, I left a comment here regarding the LVAW a while ago. --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 16:10, 16 January 2024 (UTC)
