It might be somewhere else, but when you add a guest star, whats the difference between guest star and starring role in that section?

i don't think Starring Role has ever been fully qualified. My understanding is that its primarily intended purpose is for use in anthologies, where each episode has its own unique "Stars." However, very few editors use it that way. Myself including.

I've seen it used for people who don't get a show star credit, but still appear pretty regularly. I've used it for the secondary "stars" of Star Trek (first season DeKelley, and Doohan, Takei, Nichols, Koenig, Barrett, Whitney). Ben21 uses it for Rhys's character on Torchwood.

I believe right now, for shows without an editor, if you want to add a main star to a single episode, submit them as a Starring Role and they'll automatically go into Show Cast for that episode.

well its because I noticed the editor on NCIS: Los Angeles has done it to Rocky Carroll who plays the same character as he does on NCIS...but credits him as a Starring role for the episodes he is in. But the show lists him as a Special Guest Star. Discretion of the editor, or should there be a proper way? Or maybe get rid of Starring role in the guest star spot altogether?

Starring Role serves a useful purpose, so I wouldn't recommend losing it.

It's possible the editor selected Starring Role instead of Special Guest Star by mistake. If you go into the pulldown and type S, you could get the wrong thing. Since you have the on-screen credit to back you up, have you tried to edit it to SGStar, or contact the editor?

TVRage does not provide the programs. It is a database containing information about the programs, cast/guest stars, tidbits, etc.

To watch a program, use your television, Hulu.com, iTunes, or go to the network website of the program you are interested in watching.

You can also Google search for videos by the show/episode title. Beware of scams, though.

Why are the shows over a day or 2 old removed from the iCal feed? Is there a way for me to stop them from being removed?

How does the contribution approval process work?
about 4 days ago I submitted a couple episodes of Top Gear (US). Now I see the episodes are up but my contribution is still pending?

I didn't think it was possible to submit something if someone else submitted it before?

It's possible for two or more people to submit new episodes at there same time. There's nothing already in the system, so there's no contradiction against someone submitting the same episode.

The show in question has an editor, which may account for the delay. Staff will usually give the editor 2-4 days to process the sub, so it's possible that there was something already in the queue when you submitted. Then that was processed a couple of days later, after you submitted yours, and yours are still pending.

By the way, about Top Gear (US).

I've noticed that the History channel have removed season 3 and put the new episodes in season 2 instead. Will TVRage stick to season 3?

And is it possible to see if a show have a editor?

Scroll down to any show main page and if there is an editor their name will be in red letters.

Now i see that I actually got point for the two episodes I submitted.
But I got 0.5 points per episode instead of the usual 0.2 points, why is that?
