For comments related to a vehicle or a movie, or to correct an error in the info listed, please use the "Add Comment" form displayed at the bottom of each vehicle/movie page (you have to be registered & logged in for that). If you need to include pictures in your message, above the comment area you'll find a link for storing pictures.
For discussions not directly related to a vehicle or movie, you can discuss with others on the IMCDb forum.
New vehicles and their pictures can be either submitted directly on the site (via "Add movie" and "Add vehicle" links) for validation or via the forum. Please consult this page if you want more info on how to add or send us pictures. Note that this only applies to the main picture of each vehicle page; if you wish to submit additional pictures for a vehicle that already has a page, you can directly post them in the comments as explained above. For guidelines on which movies and vehicles can be included or not, see the "Guidelines for movies" and "Guidelines for vehicles" chapters further on this page.

Original aim of IMCDb is listing cars having roles in movies, so rather works of fiction, not just building a database of car pictures. It was later extended to TV-series and some non-fiction contents, but we had to restrict what kind of contents is acceptable for the site.
Here is a list of what is acceptable, from the most important/useful (i.e. fitting the site's subject) to the least interesting.
When we ask for reference information for contents not listed on IMDb, Youtube does not count as a reference.
The following will be decided case-by-case and need approval by moderators. If you wish to submit a contribution from that category, either ask on the forum or create a movie page on the site with only a few sample image and the required information if not listed on IMDb (see above).
Here are some points to help determine if it may be accepted:
This list is not exhaustive. Also note that some things in the site may have been accepted previously but not be accepted anymore, or may have been accepted because they combine a few particular criteria not met by other rejected shows.
Note: in the following, "Post" means to publish or put a picture (or comment) on the site.
Note: these guidelines may be relaxed if the picture is large and sharp or a background car is rare or interesting for some other reason. The contributor should post a comment with the reason for posting the picture if the above guidelines are relaxed for a background car.
Examples of "rare" may include:
Examples of "interesting" may include:
Usually it is better to keep the picture the same size as the source size. However, some programs enlarge pictures when doing the capture. Also, if you get the captures via screen capture rather than video playing software's built-in function, you may also need to rescale the picture. In these case, please keep the following limits in mind:
