So, I'm kind of new & I haven't been on this site for long, but I'm finding it hard to find the actors for characters. I was thinking that maybe in the infobox, there could be a small part in it for the actor. It would make it easier & would ensure that more of the actors would be recognized for playing that certain character because I'm noticing that the less important characters, their actors aren't recognized.

I don't know, I just thought it would be easier and more organized. I know some of the actors are named under the Behind The Scene area, but the minor character's actors aren't said there. It's just a suggestion & sorry if it's already been suggested before!

The only problem i see with this, Is that adding the actor to an In-universe article is not right. It really just needs to be put in the BTS -- Ratneer Owl Me! 03:00, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

it is a good idea but it would need to go to the Administrators of the site to see what they think---- Hogwarts09 Contact Me 19:43, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

It really isnt up to the Administrators. Ill explain how things like this work around here, since you are new. The Wiki isnt really run by the administrators, the admins have no 'real' power of anything. All editors of this wiki are equal. You, me and Seth_Cooper (An Admin) are all equal. The only reason there are admins, is for reverting vandalism and having special tools to take care of the site. If you want something to happen, you need to have a vote, were everyone votes on the idea, and the community decides if it happens or not. Hope this helps. -- Ratneer Owl Me! 19:53, January 1, 2010 (UTC)
We used to have actor information and some appearance information in the infobox, but as Ratneer pointed out: it doesn't really make sense cause the HPW is from an in-universe perspective and the BTS is the only part that is "out-of universe". It also added a lot of redundant information to the pages and made the infoboxes long (especially with characters that had multiple actors). If you would like a list of who was who in the movies I would check a site such as IMDB. I have a list on my user page of links that might be helpful: here. If an article is missing who the actor is (in the "Behind the scenes" section), please add it! -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 03:43, January 4, 2010 (UTC)

Ok, thanks for explaining things everyone! Yeah, like Ratneer said, I understand. Thanks(: Kyungsuh 04:57, January 4, 2010 (UTC)
