Default Ghost in The Shell2: Innocence (I'm capping it now)

So, I wanted to create the page for GITS2, since it's not up yet. This would be my first new page to the site. I downloaded some capture software and this is my first real go around with this kind of thing.

Forgive me if this is listed on the site, but what is the best size for images, and should I post images of the guns I don't know here for ID? There's a couple I can't Id, and would rather get them ID'd before adding them to the page.

Thanks.

Only cap the REAL guns, not fictional guns that happen to shoot bullets.

I was under the impression fictional guns that were plausible were okay for capping?

Since I saw someone did a good job with the first GITS movie, I guess so. Nevermind then, go ahead. Just make sure they are good quality shots and not low res.

When you say "size" of screenshots, do you mean in terms of the file size or how big they are displayed on the page? We don't really have a rule for file size, but we prefer JPEGs no larger than 100 KB or so; PNGs that are way bigger, we frown upon. As for the display size, our site rules say 500-600 pxiels squared; I would personally say that 600px is best (most of our pages use this size).

As for guns you can't identify, you can post them on the page and just say that you aren't sure what they are, and somebody will ID them later (usually). If you have a rifle that you aren't sure about, for example, you can post "Unknown bolt-action rifle" in the heading, but still describe which character uses it and some other info like that.

Just want to say thank you to whoever fixed my shitty codes, which allowed me to use that for the rest of the page.

There are a handful more images to post, and I didn't try and identify every single gun in the Yakuza gunfight, so there is room for changes and additions.

It's a pretty good flick. I enjoyed it more than the first one.

Batou's SAW looks identical to an FN Minimi to me.


Most definitely a FAMAS G2, not an AUG or Cobray subgun.

The first gun in the frame is an Aug, the second is a FAMAS, and behind the FAMAS is a Cobray.

I thought that might be an FN too, but wasn't sure.

James, for the love of god, add captions on the images and put the text over the images. Add gun images probably change the names of the guns to the real names and add page links and you should be all done.
