The first image says right on it that it is copyrighted. How, then, does that comply with Wikipedia licensing requirements? And what prevents these hugh lightweight screens from toppling or blowing away in a high wind?Edison 16:17, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

constant spammers[edit]

Is there anything that we can do to stop the flow of bad edits in here? The ones that claim that this product is the best, sold in (look at there! prices are really good!) and other inaproppriate remarks. Hm, perhaps I'll use undo button more often, and will not bother myself so much with long edit summaries. I dont know. Santtus 21:04, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

I have been watching this page and reverting the rah-rah, spam cruft. Unless it is referenced, it should not be in there. In addition, the other name being put in is a particular trademark (which the original version of the article promoted). If the IP vandals keep it up, I am going to ask for semi-protection to at least force them to login to at least have a name to a IP. Spryde 14:56, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

paragraph blinking in and out[edit]

From article: The popularity of outdoor movies in the United States using inflatable screens has increased since 2000 with the increasing availability of smaller high light output LCD projectors with power sufficient to achieve the SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers) cinema standard of 16 Ft. Lamberts on screens.

what significance does SMPTE standards have for this movie screen? I know what it is. How is it significant? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Santtus (talkcontribs) 22:19, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Well, that part appears to be added by the spammers (The IPs are from germany where the company mentioned is headquartered). I left it in as it the most plausible reason for their popularity. Until recently, consumer grade projectors could not throw enough light to handle the typical outdoor projection situation. Recent developments in technology have allowed cheaper, brighter projectors which have seen a recent upswing in these types of screens. This previous part is my own WP:SYNTH so take it for what it is worth. This article is borderline deletion material but it has promise. I have a few other things in the hopper right now otherwise I would start the improvement drive. Spryde 00:31, 18 September 2007 (UTC)
Yep WP:SYNTH, I thought the style was against some guidelines. Santtus 11:37, 18 September 2007 (UTC)
