For fans of the show, I'm sure you're familiar with the character. I have not seen Ian Coletti's character named in the on-screen credits, so I'm not sure how the initial character was named Arseface. I know Cassidy calls him that once, but every other time I can remember he's referred to as Eugene.

So, has anyone seen an onscreen credit for "Arseface"? If not, do you think that the character name should be changed? I've mostly done photo credit corrections and adding credited actors, most of my edits so far have been much more straightforward, so I wanted to get the input of some other editors on this.

The name fits prfectly. People are used to it and let's face it: it's a darn good name.

Yes, but 1) I haven't seen that used as an on-screen credit, and 2) I hear him referred to as "Eugene" 9 out of 10 times. I scanned the character list looking for Eugene and couldn't find it at first. I initially wanted to make it "Arseface/Eugene Root", but my reading of the Help pages indicates that that's only to be used for multiple characters.

What I'm trying to ask is, does the credit make sense to the public as-is, or would "Eugene Root" be more helpful?
