Talk:The Internet Movie Plane Database

Welcome to IMPDb!
Dedicated to identifying aircraft throughout Movies, Television, and Video Games!


Dear Friends:

As many of you have noticed, The Internet Movie Plan Database ( has recently had a hard time keeping up with the growing demands of our users. In 2009 when a couple of us got together to begin putting the website together, space was never an issue. In fact, it has steadily grown with virtually no problems throughout the years.

In about the middle of 2016 we began to run into server space issues. We have since made upgrades (moving to a VPS, buying more space, etc), but the site continues to outgrow the upgrades. The meager ad revenue generated by the site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server. We who manage the site have never made money from it, it has only ever earned enough money to cover actual server costs.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we are asking for donations to keep this site up and running consistently like it did when it was a smaller, newer site. If you've enjoyed this website and would like to see it continue being the site you go to for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Oh yeah, new users and edits are now active (hopefully for good) while we're testing new and improved spam/bot protections :)
Thank you,
IMPDb Staff

We seem to have this thing running again :)
Until we get the security measures working we are currently not allowing new users or edits.
Activating these features is my top priority.

Under Construction

So Happy to see IMPDB working again !
But where is the page listing page in need of some complementary work ("under construction" and other unfinished category [wanted page / category, etc...]) ? LVCDC (talk) 05:40, 30 June 2017 (MDT)

Are you referring to the links we used to have at the top of the page which included the "unidentified aircraft" category? We lost that during our last site update but I'll be working to get it back up and running this weekend. I'm also going to try and make some changes to the sidebar.

Where is the mailbox support@IMPDB ?
And what about the Help page (especially the draft one) ?
(LVCDC 14:34, 18 July 2017 (MDT)) No more on the main page but we can found them here
Do you check the User creation log ? (since the 28 June, 9 new ones with no activity but a talk of this User with nothing regarding IMPDB field). How strange ... 17 July 2017

Invisible Picture

Several friend told me they're unable to see the pictures !
Most of the page are displayed on my screen with several pix name instead the image. I can only see all of them when I active the EDIT mode ! LVCDC (talk) 13:47, 26 July 2017 (MDT)
