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,
Tobin & Rush

Link

It would be good to have the link directly in the "navigation" or "other" list, direct on the left of the page. How do we do for that?.Sixcyl 00:28, 25 November 2014 (MST)

A link is temporarily put in the See also section of FSA. As Tleeg went some days ago, my hope was great... Perhaps next time ... LVCDC 07:11, 25 November 2014 (MST)

Organization Changes

I'd like to propose making a few changes to this page to make navigating it easier. I've already implemented these changes on the backup Fandom site which can be viewed here: https://impdb.fandom.com/wiki/IMPDb:_Frequently_Seen_Locations

  • Firstly, I think we should break up the table of locations by country. Currently we just have a single table organized roughly in alphabetical order, but I believe this is somewhat confusing since we use native languages for certain locations, as well as the romanized Latin names for languages that don't use the Latin alphabet. I believe users would find the page easier to navigate if they could first find the header for the specific country they're looking for, and then organize those individual tables alphabetically.
    • I currently have ships under their own header, but I went back and forth on whether they should instead be listed under the country of origin/operation, so I'm open to doing it that way as well.
  • I think we should add links to Wikipedia for each location entry (or the next best source of info if there is no Wikipedia page), like we have for individual aircraft and airline categories, in order to provide an easy source of additional info for those curious.

Please let me know if you have any thoughts on these proposed changes. Corkeyandpals (talk) 18:32, 12 March 2022 (MST)

Good idea (I've missed it) which could be push a little bit more : this page is now too wide and could be split by continent :
  • America
  • Europe and Russia
  • Asia, Africa and Oceania
Access would be via a 'hub' page like Common Aircraft.
We just need to think about aircraft carrier which could change of owner (some French one ended to Brazil; Russia sold some to China; Spain to Thailand; ...). LVCDC (talk) 09:54, 4 April 2022 (MDT)
I'd suggest including ships as a heading in the Asia, Africa and Oceania page since it'll likely be the smallest page. Corkeyandpals (talk) 14:49, 11 April 2022 (MDT)
