When a episode has a screencap, the screencap should replace the main picture for the main page schedule.


I guess that would work for shows like Stargate where it airs in the UK and other countries before airing in the US because then you would have screencaps before the episode airs. But for the majority of episodes on all networks, we don't have a screencap prior to it airing.

So.. it's a good idea but it's not likely to make that big of an impact, if at all.

Now, if the networks were to share screencaps with us before the episodes aired...

Maybe each person could have a "forum" on their page, and when a new topic is created, it is inserted to the People Forum, instead of just having it's own section like the tv shows have. I mean, it's not a real forum, but it links to the People Forum..I hope that makes sense.

If someone was hardcore enough, they could create an 'Official ____ Thread' for a person in the People Forum.. and then link to it in the summary for said person's guide.

Eh?

Hmm..that could work.

On IMDb, if you contribute a summary and leave a "trailing white space" (newline), and it is automatically removed. Maybe the same kind system can be implemented here, making newlines a thing of the past.

Actually, I'm surprised it doesn't work that way here, especially since extra spaces in the middle or at the end are automatically removed when you type in a person's name when creating them or searching for them.

When a person here has/recieves a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, they should recieve an star on there profifle, and be placed in a category of fellow walk-of-famers. Sort of like how Wikipedia stars their featured articles, only we star the ones with actual stars. <-- we could use the old tvrage star.

Good idea. It would have to be a user-input field that activated the star and we'd have to verify that so-and-so does indeed actually have a star. Is there a site that lists all of the stars on the HWoF?

Yes, wikipedia has one but just like anything on that site.. you can't trust it.

List of Stars

So I would suggest this site, which is official and lets you search names.

Yea, wiki isn't too accurate, cause there's a few people that just recieved a star the other day. It's normally in the news when so-and-so ge a star.On the official site, they don't list all the stars. It has most of them, but is missing some of the newer ones.The good thing about the newer ones, is that they are listed in a bunch of news sources, with pictures.

On the profile, it will give date of star?, reason for star?, and location for star?. Some shows also have stars too, such as The Simpsons...would this be classified as an award?

Yes, an award. Do they have a televised ceremony show?

I think they might tape it, but I don't think it's televised, unless some news people video tape it. A bunch of on-lookers video tape some of them though, and put it on YouTube. Here's an example of yesterday's "Hand, Wand, and Foot" ceremony.

I only have one thing against the Walk of Fame idea. Anyone can get one by paying the fee of $15,000 to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. Although some are given out, most are bought by the star themselves or by their fan clubs. That is why I don't pay attention any longer to that ''achievement."
