Character Pages - Surely a critical section of such a page is actors who have played that character. Because sometimes you may remember a character and want to find out who the actor was.

So while this may not cover all actors, but if members can add to the page; then probably 90% of the actors who have played the character are likely to be listed.

I am not sure I understand you. Are you saying you like the feature in place or are you suggesting a change to it?

If I type Batman into the search box and change "all" to "character" I get a list of actors who have played the character...

I think the writer is referring to a 'character' webpage, rather than an 'actor'/'actress' webpage. The idea is really Genius, with Magnificent potential! If you had the same basic info (film titles, dates of release, Director, Writer, etc.) The resulting info could thus be visible as relevant info & as clickable links only: similar to the way it currently exists on all your other pages.

Indeed, this is how we, ardent, IMDb.com users, dramaturgists at large peruse your site! We click at will from one page to another . . . and we learn so much as we link the connection of 'who' played 'what' character in 'which' production in any particular year.

In order to make it obvious (at a glance) as soon as the browser window opens, there could be a solid color boarder that is a different color on the Character webpages. I hope you like this idea. I think it rocks!

Did you follow the link I provided?  Did you read it?  It is not an actor page.  It's a character page titled "Batman (Character)."  Notice it says "character" within the URL, instead of "nm" which a name page would say.  It lists the titles and actors who've played Batman.  It links to all the data you mention. Aside from the color of border, it's been implemented, many years ago.

Also, you can search other characters by putting a character name into the search box and changing "all" to "character."  It will offer you existing character pages for that name.
