The Italian credit as Lewis Lawrence for Dove si spara di più. I know the Spanish has both but I always assumed the one that did the Spanish credits didn't realize the Lewis Lawrence referred to Catenacci. What do you guys think?

Does the information that "Lewis Lawrence" refers to Catenacci come from a reliable source or is it a regular pseudonym he used, or might it be from someone just randomly attempting to match up the names with the actors? If the latter it could therefore refer to someone else, with Catenacci being uncredited in one version.

We now have a bunch of new topics placed in the "Actors 50+" section, but none of these new topics have 50 confirmed roles yet. Shouldn't these topics be placed in the "Actors -50" section until such time as 50 roles have been confirmed and posted?

Also, as has been mentioned in the chat, many of these don't really fit under the category of "little known actors" and arguably fall outside the scope of this forum. There is a diva section, so there isn't really any reason why there can't be a similar section for actors if that's something many members would like. I agree with what has been said earlier about opening too many topics at once, though, and frankly, I also think that for topics to serve a purpose, there really should be a kind of minimum standard for presentation. It's really Emiliano who will have to make these decisions, though.

The comment you were referring to from chat was still there, so, to preserve it, it's copied here in case some missed it. It does seem to be a point that a number of us are in agreement on.

I don't want to be offensive - after having reacted thin-skinned a few days ago - but I don't get the idea of opening threads for actors with just a percentage of their roles covered. Shouldn't we try to complete at least the known (or the credited ones) first before meandering into many new threads at one time? Please forgive my unkindness.
I agree. While it is normal to open a topic for a generico with a few roles because that is all that is known, there is not really any reason to open a topic for a well-known actor unless you plan to create a full profile or at least present some previously undocumented roles. This misses the object of the forum which is primarily in identifying generici or finding previously unknown roles for actors, so starting so many topics for actors who will have no new roles to be found and mostly with poor quality images and one-line biographies is rather pointless.

I moved Cos10000 actors to a separate forum, renamed Character actors. So at least we keep things more orderly. I agree that the images are of poor quality... I hope that over time he can replace them.

I must say that I also made a mistake when I opened so many topics in Divas without having the time to complete them. However, I agree with the reasoning initiated by FatmanDan.

So for now Cos10000 will have to limit itself to already open topics and not open new ones.
