Possible restructuring?[edit]

Quick note: if the two sections currently in this navbox grow unmanageable, we can move to a one-year-per-section system like this:

What are the limitations on this list?[edit]

Exactly how many of his films are we alloud to list here. I understand the obvious factors, those being that the films should preferably not be lost and should have pages, but givin the vast number of films this guy made, can we really put in all of them. Does the film need to be notable to be included? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Iamnickgeo (talkcontribs) 21:03, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

Your hunch is correct—this navbox is for all the Méliès films that already have their own articles. When new articles are created, they can be added in the appropriate place chronologically.
I wouldn't be too worried about the navbox getting too big; navboxes on Wikipedia often handle huge lists of works (for example, Template:Agatha Christie or Template:H. G. Wells). If at some point the navbox just looks too big, we can change to a one-year-per-section system, as modeled above.--Lemuellio (talk) 20:07, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
