Dear Friends:

Two short years ago we created this message box on our home page, asking for your help to keep this site up and running. In that time, many of you have generously donated to our PayPal account and we are forever grateful. With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we continue to ask for donations to keep this site up and running. If you're still enjoying this website and would like to help us continue being the BEST site on the Internet for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Thank you,

Single Plane Categories

Why is there a category for this one, as it doesn't match with the rule of 2 aircraft/Category? Any way I would personnally prefer to have a category starting at 1 aircraft. It seems that it would be easier for the future to keep chance of a proper regroupment when a second aircraft similar comes in new pages. By the way I'm working of an exhaustive list of all the new airplanes I have found since I fill the base. I will come soon with the result. Already, there are some aircrafts that should deserve there category according to this rule:
Douglas DC-7
Junkers Ju-52
De Havilland Comet
Sopwith Camel...etc

Our main admin Tim is busy this week, but I am sure he had a good reason to create this page with only one plane in the category. I assume he wasn't finished with it (adding to it) or something. I have noticed that there are a couple that are ready for category pages (2 or more) like the Ju-52. For those, feel free to create the category if you can keep to the same format which has been used. Regarding single plane categories, lets wait to hear more opinions, or at least when Tim gets back. It may be as simple as a lot of extra work (creating categories when there is only one plane to include). Also, I was curious what you meant by this, "By the way I'm working of an exhaustive list of all the new airplanes I have found since I fill the base." Tleeg 14:21, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for pointing this out, I have corrected the category additions. The issue with creating categories for just one aircraft is you end up with 'stub' articles that are of little use to users. As for the other aircraft, they are on a list awaiting to be created but it can take while, especially at the rate you're creating them! They will be created eventually but it feel like helping out, then see IMPDb:Create a Category, but please keep the format. Look forward to seeing more from you Bthebest 19:10, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
