I added actors via "add person", but when I did it I still didn't have an image to associate. Now, if I wanted to add the photo to the actor's page, it can't be done. The only things I can change are birth date, biography and link to the actor profile, but no possibility to add the actor's photo. :?: :? :?

Users can´t do this (yet?), only Role specific Images...

Got it. Then I hope it's possible to do it as soon as possible, because some apps that use your database take photos from the person's page and not from the series page :cry: :roll:

If you add a Role-specific Image on the Series Page, the Apps should pull this Photo. If no one´s available it should pull the Actor Photo. Regular Users can´t add Photos to the Actors Page, but can add a Role-specific Image on the Series Page if it isn´t locked.
If you want to have a Photo from the Actor itself on the Actorpage provide enough Information and Links and a Mod/Admin will add it.

I'm sorry for going off topic (should I open a dedicated thread somewhere in the forum, perhaps?), but can we discuss about this? It is necessary to forbid the addition of new Role-specific Images to locked shows? Is there a vandalism problem related to these images which could justify the prohibition?

What I am trying to say is that I appreciate the possibility to edit translations, metadata and episode previews of locked shows (it was a huge step forward, I thank you for this), but I hope we could get the chance to add actors images too, since some shows are locked by a long time. La casa de papel is the first one that comes to my mind, last season introduced a few new characters and IMO they deserve an image.

We don´t have the Possibility to unlock the Actor´s Section seperatly. If Actor´s are missing Users have to make a Request. Consider that we just add Main Characters, not everyone whos ´playing in 2 or 3 Episodes.
Shows are also locked for a Reason. Our Admins are working on the Lock´s so we may can lock/unlock specific Things like Actors in the Future.

This is a good news and I hope Admins could figure it out soon a way to enable it.

In the meantime, actually I made a request about actors pictures here, please could you take a look at it?
