I think actors qualify as creators, in that they create their performances, if nothing else. They also often create lines or scenes, if the director is sufficiently flexible. In broad terms, though, they contribute to the creation of a work. We currently have Actors
as a subindex of Creators
, so I see no problem with keeping actors in a Creator namespace. Tropes Are Flexible
That still leaves questions about publishers and historical figures, but I don't think we need to solve every
issue in this thread, which is about a Creator namespace. As someone suggested above, historical figures who appear in multiple works can effectively be considered tropes. As for publishers, I dunno, but they're definitely not people. Maybe Useful Notes
would be best. Or trivia. But not relevant to this thread.
Am I wasting my breath here? Is a Creator namespace something that will never, ever happen? Or is it a good idea that just hasn't come of age yet?
"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.
