Dear Friends:

As many of you have noticed, The Internet Movie Plan Database (impdb.org) 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

Welcome to the IMPDb

Thanks for joining The Internet Movie Plane Database Weasel1984!

It's great to have you! I see you have already been able to make lots of contributions to the site. Thank you! It's looking great. I am know that the viewing community, including myself and the other users are appreciative of anything you can do to help. Since the site is so young, we are a long ways away from where we want to be.

There is a new users page which can help make the site easier to use. If you are interested in getting more involved, you could also register on the forum to publicly discuss site ideas, and other aviation info and thoughts.

Hi Tleeg.

Hi Tleeg. Thank you for the welcome. Yes I read the "new users" page at start. Well with very mixed results, I'm still learning Wikmiedia language (never been very active at the wiki). As I've just written in my profile, I do not know much about planes, but will try to add something to this database and in the same time do not spoil anything. ;)

I can tell you have went through the new users page because you are doing a great job and your knowledge of planes is pretty good too I see. It's great to see you add some info on your users page as well! Thanks again for all your hard work! Tleeg 17:29, 5 January 2011 (MST)

Categories

Just so you're fully aware of the format for this site - we only link aircraft titles to categories if that aircraft has a category. Aircraft only have categories if they have appeared in 2 or more productions. If the aircraft has appeared in 2 or more productions then linking it is fine, even if it's red.

For example: In Hydrozagadka, a Tu-134 also appears in 07 zgłoś się so it can be linked and a page will be created for it in due course. However, the Il-14 has only apeared in Hydrozagadka so far, so no category is required and the title is not linked.

Have a look at IMPDb:Create a Category for more information and feel free to ask any questions on my discussion page Bthebest 15:31, 7 January 2011 (MST)

Ok, I will remember this. But in fact I already did it once (and just tried again) in case of PZL helicopters - Mi-2. There are already two, one in For Your Eyes Only, second in 07 zgłoś się and it doesn't work. Only the one from FYEO is visible in PZL Mi-2 category. Can't find what is wrong in this case.

Contribution Scores

I also noticed you have here rank of most active members, were are points for editions - means OPS! :P I will try to edit my contributions less. My adding of dot or something like that, can't be compared with identification of unknown planes done by other members.

Weasel1984
The problem with the category was, there was no category tag in 07 zgłoś się. I've corrected it now so if you look at the edit history you'll see what I mean. Also, don't worry about making little edits, if it improves the page then great. Remember you can use the 'Show preview' button to check your page first. Bthebest 16:46, 8 January 2011 (MST)
OK, thank you. Weasel1984
Agreed. The scoring system is not very sophisticated and is really only meant to be a way to see who is being active on the site. I have not really been all that interested in setting up something to count all of the types of edits a person can do, then rank them. Have fun!

Thanks for jumping in Rush. It would be nice if there was another wiki extension we could use for the Contribution Scores, but the one we are currently using is the only one available. It's not perfect, but it works and adds some fun to the site. P.S. Weasel, Contribution Scores on the forum - Jeremy 19:39, 9 January 2011 (MST)
Thank you all for these informations. Weasel1984
