Welcome to IMFDB
Before you do any editing please take the time to read the Rules, Standards and Principles. This is a very important document that explains how this website is setup as well as telling you what is and isn't allowed. If it is determined by an admin that you have not read these rules, your account will be suspended. Continued non-compliance may result in a permanent ban. After that you should also read the IMFDB Screencapping Guide and the IMFDB Style Guide to familiarize yourself with the image and formatting requirements for pages you create.
There are a number of pages that desperately need your help. You can find these Incomplete pages here.
If you have any questions, feel free to post them here but make sure to sign your post by typing --~~~~.
Finally, IMFDB has a forum set up here that is only available to registered members. There is lots of good stuff to see there. If you would like to join the forum, please post HERE and an account will be created for you.
Such file names as "Pistol.jpg" or "Shotgun-0.jpg" are too generic and so unacceptable. Please use the title of the media in file names, like "Thing 2002-Pistol.jpg". Thanks. Greg-Z (talk) 00:54, 30 September 2017 (EDT)
RE: File Names
Apparently it's derived from the SS2 assault rifle, which didn't start testing until 2003 and didn't enter production until 2005, so minimum date for the PM2 to exist would be 2003. Evil Tim (talk) 09:18, 2 October 2017 (EDT)
Rather than continuing to create pages and then leaving them in WIP, please focus on finishing one page at a time. By my count, you've been here less than a week, started three pages, and have finished zero. Please hold off on resurrecting the EndWar page until you've finished the others. Thanks. --Funkychinaman (talk) 21:14, 4 October 2017 (EDT)
RE: Tomb Raider Last Revelation
Glad to help. I'll take another gander when I get a free minute but from what I remember that one assault gun really didn't have anything specific to it.. might be better to just label it as a generic assault carbine or by whatever it's called in-game. Sometimes some things just can't be ID'd but can be left in for the sake of completeness on the page. Again though, I'll take another look and see if what you say about it being a HK receiver is true and if so, eh go from there I guess. StanTheMan (talk) 15:11, 7 October 2017 (EDT)
- Yeah I saw that one, I have a feeling it might be an Airsoft CAW BG-15. Didn't the real BG-15 have a wooden grip? Evil Tim (talk) 11:50, 1 July 2018 (EDT)
- Be very careful adding information from military-today that you can't cross-reference from somewhere else, it's not very reliable since that one writer BLACKTAIL is kind of a nut (check out his Youtube page "Blacktaildefense" if you want to see why you shouldn't trust him). But sure, I think that one might be a BG-15. Evil Tim (talk) 12:34, 1 July 2018 (EDT)
RE: Cut Weapons
It's fine, it's not a big issue (and not really a strict rule), it's just that they're best kept off the main page and left in talk pages, if they're merely found in game files. Cut weapons that were actually seen in official trailers are definitely welcome, though. --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 15:55, 11 September 2019 (EDT)
Please don't crop your screenshots. If you want to emphasize a particular part of an image, you can draw circles. This is covered in the Screencapping Guide. Thanks. --Funkychinaman (talk) 09:33, 25 September 2019 (EDT)
- There's a link to the screencapping guide as well as the Rules and Style Guide at the top of the page. Please re-upload. Thanks. --Funkychinaman (talk) 09:04, 26 September 2019 (EDT)
3 is lacking some images (WP grenade, Objekt 279 main gun, flamethrower) and has a couple of images of dubious quality like that portrait one in the RPG-7 section. 2's missing the SOCOM, Fat Man's Glock, RGB-6, Nikita, and everything in the "explosives" and "other" sections.

In early prototype stages, the AK-12 was known as the AK-200, which is shown in this image. However, the image that you added is a different weapon; it's part of the current AK-200 series (including the AK-201, AK-202, etc.), which were previously known as "AK-100M" series, and are improved variations of the earlier AK-100 family (AK-101, AK-102, etc.). The current AK-200 is not really related to the AK-12, it just ended up having the same name as the early AK-12 prototypes.
So far, the new AK-200 series don't seem to have appeared in media, so they shouldn't be listed on IMFDB right now. If they ever appear in a film or video game, I think they will be included in the AK-47/AK-74 pages, depending on the caliber of the specific variants.
- I don't watch this movie, I just notice the empty (at those time) subsection. Now, the page is seed to be complited. Many thanks. Pyramid Silent (talk) 16:52, 15 June 2020 (EDT)
