Welcome.

I suggestion you remove "A-list" as many of the actors on your list are not A-list.

The character on the list in place #4 is Ronnie, played by Stacie Greenwell. But the description you included with that listing refers to Robbie, played by Steve Zahn.

The word you should use is reoccurring. Something that reoccurs happens more than once. Something that recurs happens repeatedly, and on a regular basis. Since these actors don't appear on a regular basis, they are reoccurring.

I suggest adding the following as they have appeared on the show at least six times plus a few more that seem important to include:

Dylan (Reid Ewing) - 30 episodes
Andy (Adam Devine) - 21 episodes
Ben (Joe Mande) - 12 episodes
Reuben (Spenser McNeil) - 10 episodes
Pameron Tucker (Dana Powell) - 9 episodes
Dom (Kasey Mahaffy) - 8 episodes
Ronaldo (Christian Barillas) - 7 episodes
Charlie Bingham (Justin Kirk) - 6 episodes
Principal Brown (Andrew Daly) - 6 episodes
Barb Tucker (Celia Weston) - 5 episodes
Merle Tucker (Barry Corbin) - 3 episodes

There are some grammatical and spelling errors I will suggest after you make these changes.

Thanks I made the grammatical change, and I added Andy Devine but I prefer to keep the list at a maximum of 20.  Steve Zahn is actually also named Ronnie on Modern Family but IMDB apparently cannot reflect two characters with the same name such as "Ronnie"?  I have attempted to update Setve Zahn's name on Modern family to Ronnie LaFontane.  Thanks again

Looks like your Ronnie fix worked!

How about adding Reid Ewing, since he's been in so many episodes? He's actually been in the most episodes of anyone outside of the regulars (Claire, Cameron, etc.)

Some grammar/punctuation suggestions:

Sal - either say "besty" or best friend - "besty" friend is not a thing.

Shorty - should be conscious, not conscience.

DeDe - It would read better to say ...plays Jay's wacko ex-wife..."

Andre - ...that does not go over... rather than "will not"

Kaplan - add a comma after Kaplan. ...same school where Cameron wants to be the center of attention (no of at the end and change that to where)

Pepper - add a comma after Saltzman. I suggest you change the end to ...planner always looking to throw a good party.

Frank Dunphy - he travels in an RV (or a motorhome).

Rainer - it is correct to write forties, rather than 40's. I suggest you change the end to ...to the dislike of her parents.

Miles - suggest ...life-long golf and drinking buddy.

Pam - suggest ...plays female home builder; she and her partner are raising...

Martin - Cameron's bowling league or Jay's? You should never end a sentence with "to". Suggest changing to ...in Jay's bowling league. Also team captain doesn't need to be capped.

I tried to upload/change some photos that weren't really showing the person in question, like for Donna, Andre and Martin. The site won't let me edit Longinus's photo though. :(

Hope that wasn't too overwhelming. Please feel free to ask any questions of me or the rest of the board - we are here to assist!

Thanks for taking so much time to provide the edits.  I took most of your suggestions.  I still cannot update Steve Zahn as Stacie Greenwell's name still reflects the name Ronnie, and not Steve Zahn.  I did not include Reid Ewing in my list as I feel he was more of a regular over two seasons and not a periodic/recurring player and I want to limit my list to just 20 actors/actresses.  Much appreciated Jen.

I had a LIST published "Favorite recurring actor/actresses on Modern Family" but it has disappeared from my LISTS?  What happened to it?

Ed,

All character lists have been deleted along with IMDb's old character pages.
https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topi...

However, the poll is still active, but may also be removed at some point.

Thank you for the explanation.  I also noticed that the existing lists that I have published are no longer aggregating per day or per week.  It really discourages frequent IMDB users from publishing/editing any more.
