Merge proposal[edit]

I'm not too sure if separate character pages are required for every Winslow family character. I'm aware the Carl and Harriette characters appeared on the predecessor show Perfect Strangers, though even back then both were only recurring characters. All 3 characters concerned/discussed is pretty much explained already at this article, with enough references for a short non in-universe summary. As it stands the information as it stands on those pages is mostly WP:OR and at the same time is fairly difficult to WP:V.

I have left out Steve Urkel and to a lesser extent Laura Winslow as both of those characters seem to have gotten a lot more (if not most) attention during the series. I do intend to work on finding more sources for both the Steve Urkel and Laura Winslow pages to get a kick-start on (hopefully others) to start helping to improving both those characters' articles. I would like to propose to merge what is useful and verifiable from Carl/Eddie/Harriette's current separate pages and merge/redirect it to this article. If there are little to no replies after 2 weeks, I will proceed with the move. Sb617 (Talk) 16:59, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

As it's been over 2 weeks, I'm merging any useful references or verifiable information to their character pages. I'll be redirecting the three articles to this page. Sb617 (Talk) 12:20, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Merge proposal[edit]

I propose that List of Family Matters cast members be merged into this article. Many, but not all of the entries there are duplicated in this article. Some entries there that are not in this article include: Mason Adams, Holmes Osborne, Bumper Robinson, Mindy Sterling. Northamerica1000(talk) 20:41, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

Support for the reason that List of Family Matters cast members is an almost exact duplicate of what is already here. For those that are not here, all we have to do is add their names to the "Notable guest stars" section. Once that is finished, that article can just be deleted or redirected here. Since no one objected the PROD on that article, I doubt anyone will object to this merge, so if there are no objections by the end of the month, I will perform the merge.

Support pretty much duplicates this page for the most part. As per The Legendary Ranger, the actors not listed on here can be added under Notable Guest Stars. Sb617 (Talk) 13:19, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
