spelling of his name was incorrect[edit]

Cesar Montaño has a tilde over the N of his name and no accent mark on his E.

Both are wrong! The Filipino actor's name covered by this article is Cesar Montano. There is no tilde over the n of his last name and no accent on e of his first name. --Pinay06 01:01, 2 December 2006 (UTC)


Home in California[edit]

Does anyone know if Cesar has a home in California becuase i've seen him in various parts of Cal, Burlingame, L.A., San Diego, Daly City, and others I forgot. Derrty2033 06:18, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

I am not sure, but we'll find out. --Pinay06 06:50, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

Films and albums[edit]

Can the films be shortened? Wikipedia is not the IMDB. --Howard the Duck 10:35, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

What do you mean by "can the films can be shortened"? do you mean shorten the title? or do you mean "can the list of films be limited to just a few?" If yes, to which ones and how to choose? Also, isn't the encyclopedia telling a lie if some are mentioned and others are not? --Pinay (talkemail) 10:55, 11 January 2007 (UTC)
Besides, these are factual information which are verifiable, which is what Wikipedia is all about. --Pinay (talkemail) 10:57, 11 January 2007 (UTC)
I was referring to the list. There's too many of them. Like shorten it to "selected filmography" like in Anthony Michael Hall? --Howard the Duck 11:04, 11 January 2007 (UTC)
Okey. Please help. Thanks. --Pinay (talkemail) 11:10, 11 January 2007 (UTC)
Why not limit to films where he's the primary actor, had acting nominations, and were blockbusters? --Howard the Duck 11:14, 11 January 2007 (UTC)
Yes, that will do. Thank you for volunteering to do it. I really appreciate it Howard. Thanks again.--Pinay (talkemail) 11:44, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

Reset indent. Maybe instead of choosing what to include, we could copy the style of Dustin_Hoffman#Filmography? Berserkerz Crit 13:47, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

Well for one, the Hoffman article wasn't an FA, while Hall's is featured. And Hoffman is really old (b. 1937), will Hall was born on 1968. --Howard the Duck 14:59, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

People from...[edit]

I believe the "Category:People from..." is for residency, or where a person was born, not ethnicity. Ergo, Rich Alvarez, who was born at Yokosuka, Kanagawa gets a Category:People from Yokosuka, Kanagawa even though he's not Japanese. --Howard the Duck 09:49, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

You believe? - please give me the specific wikipedia policy that states this guideline, and I will be happy to concede. Until then, please respect my category as per my understanding of his claim as people of or from Bohol when I wrote the article. --Ate Pinay (talkemail) 10:09, 28 January 2007 (UTC)
IMHO, it also (not only!) includes direct claims of the person himself as coming from or belonging to a specific group. In this case, Cesar Montano himself has claimed to come from Bohol, which is his roots. As a matter of fact, he owns properties and business interests in his own hometown in Bohol. In addition, he makes regular visits and there are feelers that he will run for a local position. --Ate Pinay (talkemail) 10:18, 28 January 2007 (UTC)
  • From - the source or beginning of something
  • OF - used to indicate the place that somebody or something belongs to or is connected with

Ergo, Cesar is a person of Bohol, not a person from Bohol. Category:Visayan people would be more accurate than Category:People from Bohol since Category:People from Bohol would give the impression that Cesar lived both at Manila and at Bohol, which is false. --Howard the Duck 14:51, 28 January 2007 (UTC)
IMHO, to me, as a pure and true-blooded Boholano, there is no difference between people of Bohol and people from Bohol. If you look in my wiki friends list, I even call our Youth Ambassadors in Bohol as adopted Boholanos. Certainly, Cesar is more than just an adopted Boholano. HE IS A BOHOLANO - rising above! If it is not acceptable to you that he be placed in BOTH categories People from Manila and People from Bohol, I don't see any reason why you would object if I place him in Category:Bohol, instead of just Category:Visayan People. I will change the category now. I hope that placing him in such category can be respected by someone I have truly respected in Tambayan Phiippines! --Ate Pinay (talkemail) 15:57, 28 January 2007 (UTC)
Come on now, this is Wikipedia, not Friendster and MySpace. I came here to create and edit articles, not engage myself in a social network. With that said, it not my or your standard that matters here, heck, this is a simple definition of words. Cesar isn't from Bohol, he's "of" Bohol. Why not just create Category:Boholano people? Putting him under Category:Bohol is not a good idea either, since that'll be bad categorization. --Howard the Duck 16:12, 28 January 2007 (UTC)
Good idea. Thank you. As usual, you come up with GOOD IDEAS, --Ate Pinay (talkemail) 16:16, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Vandalism[edit]

Guys, please check the "Ralph Palomeno" reference that says it's Cesar's longest-running role. It looks like vandalism. For one thing, his role in the Annabelle Huggins Story is "Ruben Ablaza" not Ralph Palomeno; looks like someone wants to troll his own name. Thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 202.147.26.10 (talk) 02:06, 29 July 2010 (UTC)
