Deletion proposals[edit]

I've seen that Shelly and GiGi have been deleted. I think we could delete Taylor, Glenda and Nicki as well and fuse their articles in the list of reccuring. In retrospect their part in the show wasn't that more important than the former's. However I'd say we keep the other ones as they all have had a notable story arc/many appearances over the years.

Star billing[edit]

I'm just passing through here and have no knowledge (or actual interest) in the subject of the article, but I noticed that the table of Main characters is prefaced by, "'Starring seasons' refers to the season in which an actor or actress received star billing for playing a character."

I found that doubtful, since "One Tree Hill" is apparently a TV show, and most TV shows lead with the show title in the credits, followed by the main/regular actors. After the regulars are listed (often after a commercial on U.S. TV), the guest stars and other, minor regulars will get mentioned. The tern "star billing", however, has always meant "name listed before the title," as in Harrison Ford in Air Force One. That doesn't seem to be what's meant here (although it could be, since I've never seen the show). In Season One, ten names would have to be shown before the show's title in the opening credits. Is that how the show does it? Respectfully suggesting you check, and consider rewording the label/legend. — JohnFromPinckney (talk) 12:29, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

I think I know what you mean now. Basically in season 1-4 the opening credits were intertwined with the cast names. The music and title were all together as it's own little intro to the show. All ten names were included and in season four, all eleven. Then after the credits it would say "special guest stars" then "guest stars". Since season 5 due to production costs they have the inter-title then the names come up, for this show it just says the name. It doesn't say "Starring James Lafferty" for example it would just say "James Lafferty" then the rest. I wouldn't say star billing as words together, but I would use "starring" which is what's on the page. I hope this helps! Jayy008 (talk) 21:24, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
Well, again, I'm not really concerned, so if you're all happy, I can be happy. I wasn't talking about the word "starring" in the credits, I was talking about names listed before the show's title ("star billing") or after the show's title (uh, not-star billing). Carry on. — JohnFromPinckney (talk) 23:08, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Oh yeah, they were. In season 1-4 the names came before the title during the intro to the show. Jayy008 (talk) 09:08, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

Format of the page[edit]

Just as a reminder of information to the page. Current and Former main characters are separate unless the show is cancelled or finished. There should also be sections for Recurring, Special Guest Stars and Guest Stars, although it doesn't matter which order these go in. There is no rule to say a box of which characters have been on the show, which seasons they were starring and which seasons they were recurring isn't allowed. However, a box like this exists on most TV Shows main pages and it has limited information and is better there. Also just because a character has their own individual article, it doesn't mean that they shouldn't be on this page, ALL main characters must be listed on this page. I am saying this because of a recent IP edit war I've had which is ongoing. If anybody has any suggestions then they will be welcome. But his edits go against the whole of Wikipedia (other character pages). The consensus at the moment stands at how the page is now. Jayy008 (talk) 21:11, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

One of IP's has now been blocked. However, if this edit is made again using another IP, it is vandalism (for the reasons above - correct Wiki format) and the IP should be reported. Jayy008 (talk) 15:20, 17 July 2010 (UTC)

Sawyer Brooke Scott[edit]

Should Sawyer Brooke Scott be removed? It's by an unknown baby and all information is listed on the Peyton Sawyer main article. Jayy008 (talk) 19:30, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

Listing characters[edit]

It was brought to my attention that there is a disagreement over what types of characters should be listed on TV related pages. When it comes to overall series pages, the only important cast are the main cast. When breaking it down further, like for season or episode pages or character pages, the only next relevant cast are recurring and maybe special guest characters (typically not the latter). Non-descript characters, such as "teacher" or "girl #2", are not appropriate. Per WP:INDISCRIMINATE, Wikipedia is not just a collection of information, and listing random actors from a show would be indiscriminate in nature. We link to IMDb on all pages, and IMDb already keeps a rather extensive listing of all actors from any given show/episode. The best example I can provide is Characters of Smallville. The focus is on main characters and only truly important recurring characters. You'll notice that there are 2 actual lists for recurring. The first contains a list with prose information about the characters (real world content). The second is a generic listing that just lists characters who had recurring appearances, but were not notable enough for prose mentioning.  BIGNOLE  (Contact me) 01:51, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

Guest Stars[edit]

I have moved Miranda, Alexander and Grubbs to guest stars in prose. According to recurring they don't really fit as they had one season guest-stories. If they come back for season 8, then they should definitely be in recurring. As for now, I don't think they should. Please post any objections here for discussion. Jayy008 (talk) 17:44, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Mouth & Skillz[edit]

These two have many different people calling them different things, I don't know what should be included on this page for commonname purposes. Skillz Taylor/Antwon Taylor or Mouth McFadden/Marvin McFadden. They're both equally called those names. Jayy008 (talk) 21:03, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

I'd personally say Mouth McFadden and Skillz. Jayy008 (talk) 21:04, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

Derek Sommers[edit]

Is Derek Sommers notable enough to have in recurring? Jayy008 (talk) 10:56, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

What does the table mean?[edit]

What are the numbers (they are not "duration" as the column titel indicates), and what do the colours mean? Can't you just write some text? This is an encyclopedia, not a colouring book. --FA2010 (talk) 21:21, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Rachel Gatina?[edit]

Rachel Gatina is listed as a main character, but is nowhere on that page. If she is who I think she is, that's not merited in light of the further development - but she would deserve a small section? Maybe someone can write one up? (134.60.117.80 (talk) 09:24, 17 March 2013 (UTC))

Recurring characters section[edit]

Hello, the current table is not really needed. It should be sufficient to give several sentences on each character as they were not main characters. - Kiraroshi1976 (talk) 00:21, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

The table is fine. It gives readers specific oversight of the recurring characters throughout the series. B.Davis2003 (talk) 07:35, 17 December 2016 (UTC)

The table does not comply with Wiki Rules, which I have provided to you in the "View history" section. It's over complicated and over specific with the episode count. MSMRHurricane (talk) 07:30, 18 December 2016 (UTC)

Reasons why the table should be reinstated.

  • I updated the table to comply with the Wiki TV table rules.
  • It gives the reader a specific overview of that characters tenure.
  • It serves as the same function as the "Main characters" table, so I do not see why a table for the supporting roles cannot be found here.
  • I've said it once, I'll say it again, many other TV show articles support the recurring character tables, to deny OTH one seems a little hypercritical and plain ignorant on an other editors behalf.
  • The tables have been active for over five years, to remove them based on their appearance seems a little ridiculous. They've been updated. Should be reinstated.

As you know, AlexTheWhovian reverted you here and had valid reasons for doing so. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 04:04, 10 January 2017 (UTC)
@Flyer22 Reborn That was in regards to notes under the main cast listing, not for the same matter I am talking about now. B.Davis2003 (talk) 02:34, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
It was in regards to both the table and notes. And I would have sworn that I said to talk about how the table would contribute and be beneficial to the article, and not simply "because others do it". Alex|The|Whovian? 03:24, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
I have mentioned why it would contribute and be beneficial. Not in those exact words obviously. And "because others do it" is still a valid point as it identifies that having table for recurring characters it both relevant and does not go against any rules of Wikipedia.
