  • If puppeteers are included in the end credits include them and append (puppeteer) at the end of the role.


  • Why do we have to enter one thing and got a check box for the other? Maybe someone knows and can tell me.

    If there is no specific reason, I'd like to request a check box for it.

    I can't remember ever appending a role with (puppeteer) nor do I recall seeing it in anything I've downloaded. How often does this come up as an issue?

    I see it added quite often. I also see times when they don't append (puppeteer)... but obvious a puppeteer role. Which I have always (and will as long as the rules read this way) voted no. So yes... I do believe it should be added. Definitely easier then typing it out.

    In movies with puppet characters. So lots of pre-CGI sci-fi and fantasy and the Muppet stuff.

    Often they are headed by a divider reading "Puppeteers" in which case I see no reason to append (puppeteer) to each and every name below the divider.

    If they don't I always vote no... since that IS what the rules tells us to do... Append it to the roles.

    As far as I know the puppeteer designation came after there was a checkbox for voice roles.
    The way I see it the puppeteer designation has been put in the rules in such a way that if and when Ken decides to make it a checkbox he can easily convert the existing designations as he has done with voice roles in the past.

    Personally I hope this will be one of the features in the next version.

    Not true.  Way back when, we used to append the role with (voice) just like we do with puppeteers.

    Exactly what I was referring to; we used to append roles with (voice) and at some point Ken decided to change that into a checkbox. My feeling is that this could be the case for puppeteer as well.

    As far as I remember the puppeteer rule was later, but if you say this was not the case then I stand corrected.

    Oft times a dividers is used for voices, we can use the dividers but we still check voice. The same applies to puppeteers.
