Image[edit]

I created and added a film reel with the US flag in the background. Any feeling or thoughts on this? I figured, many other stub templates have images, why not this one. <>Who?¿? 04:30, 11 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I like it. It might be more appropriate for a broader stub category like "This article related to American cinema is a stub." However i can't think of anything to specifically symbolize acting besides the stereotypical "happy & sad" masks, which I am incidentally tired of seeing.
BTW I put in a line-break "<br/>" between the two sentences because I thought it looked awful having (at least on my screen) the final word "it" on a line by itself. I figure more than half of all readers will have the stub notice occupying 2 lines anyway (browser window dimensions) so I broke it by sentences.

Yea, I'm not too partial to the masks either, I use the film reel on another wiki site for actors, figured it would look pretty decent. I was thinking maybe an eagle on top of the reel, instead of the flag, but couldnt find one that would easily downsize or edit. As far as the line break, I'm using 1024x768, I am not sure how it looks on smaller resolutions. Granted someone has already removed it, to conform with template standards. <>Who?¿? 00:12, 23 Jun 2005 (UTC)
