I can not find the drop down box to create character pages on the cast lists anymore. How do I go about creating a character page these days?

They were dropped a few years back and no longer exist.

That is extremely sad. It is now impossible to find crossover connections through character appearances across films and television. Character pages made that possible. For example, Warren Coolidge from The White Shadow also appeared on St. Elsewhere and Method & Red. It should be all on one page. It is a great loss for crossover enthusiasts like me.

Tell me about it! I make IMDb polls and it would be nice to have it as a tool for the creation of those polls.

That also killed the John Munch connections between the five or more series he appeared in. This is a very bad day for me. *sigh*

Yes, someone conspired to make my life more difficult. I track crossovers, and one of the most common is through characters going from one movie to another. (Movie in this context is any motion picture including films, miniseries, and television series.) Now I don't have the luxury of finding that information simply on IMDb like I once did. And Wikipedia is no help since some of these characters are not notable enough to have their own articles. So, now I am stuck. This is so disheartening.
