This is a discussion forum, but mostly a searchable document, like a book, where the reading must focus on the actor and not on closely temporary personal considerations. Therefore, in the actor's topics don't write comments that are not related to the film or to the actor: no phrases like "Wow 100 movies!!", "Last movie found!!", "Please remove from the Titles to check", "New entry for filmo", "Nice entry", and so on... and no smiles. In any case every post in the actors' forums must be written only to upload new pics.
For discussions and request just open a new topic in the appropriate forum or choose a ready one in Forum Organization.
If you think you have found any errors and you want to report them, there is a cumulative topic for do it, which is this: Error reporting. Than, we can rewrite them in an orderly manner in the actor's topic, according to the scheme used here.
To make the reading of the pages more pleasant and above all make the title of the film from which the snapshot is taken, more cleaner, a precise setting pagination is required.
First of all, write your line (the image caption) in tiny block letters: Title of the movie (in bold style - read further below how to do it), year of production (in brackets), role / part played by the actor (in italic). Then, wrapping with text, write your comment, as you like.
How to apply the bold style to the title
Hai sbagliato dovevi uccidermi subito (1972) as Man in the saloon at a table
[Place for the attachment image]
" B ": bold text, used to highlight the movie title.
For example: Profondo rosso (1975).
" I ": italic text, used to highlight the role of the actor in the film.
For example Profondo rosso (1975) as Marcus Dali
The image caption does not require an end point. While if you add some text, it must follow the normal syntax.
We don't want to have 100 pictures of an actor if they are so low quality that we can't even figure out who we're talking about.
- Use JPG format, not PNG (max 1 MB for attachment, but less is much appreciated).
- The size (weight & height) must be proportionate as the original (no flattened heads or long muzzles).
- The minimun weight must be 350px or more.
- No blurry or very low resolutions pics.
- No croppings.
- No letterboxing (you must remove the black areas along the top and bottom of a video).
- When possible, the subject of the pic may be in focus, not moving or with inappropriate expressions: half closed eyes, crooked or open mouth (this is the ABC of Photography).
- Don't be in a hurry to insert dozens of roles and images, not taking care of the syntax of the texts and leaving errors, because everything will be deleted in the same way.
- In case of reporting biographical data, the source must be mentioned (copy and paste from Wikipedia or IMDb is not very welcome). Without citing the source or how this data was reached, and the proof that there has been a search that goes beyond 2 seconds of copy paste from the internet, everything will be deleted.
- Don't written texts that write the obvious: if you don't know what to write in an actor's bio, don't write anything. It is useless to write "he was a bald actor": we all have eyes to see it.
You don't have to steal snapshots from other sources. All uploaded snapshots must have been made by the individual user, otherwise they could be deleted.
