Add Creators to Filmmaker List

Postby djross » Wed Mar 15, 2017 6:11 pm

Since the addition of TV series to Criticker, a new category of person has been added to the database, "Created By", to indicate the person responsible for a TV series or miniseries, but the "Filmmaker List" still only has Directors, Actors and Screenwriters as its available categories. This should be rectified. Thanks.

You're right -- we'll be adding that soon. Thanks for reminding us!

Creators are now activated on the Filmmaker list. We allow them to have a minimum number of credits of 1. Thanks again for bringing this to our attention!

Thanks. Have started to add creators to a lot of series that did not yet have this information. It seems that often the creators have been listed in Criticker as writers. Perhaps this occurred in the short period after series were added but before the creator category was created. Just letting you know.

is there any particular reason we can set the creators' minimums to 1 but not anyone else's? i've always wanted to see how many directors i've seen films by...

The only real reason was because we don't have that many creators, yet, in the system.

We'll think about removing the '3 films' minimum for looking at least at your own rankings. That would make sense.
