The term actors is not in general use to describe doom monsters, etc. - "Things", "Enemies" are more common. I realise the category is brand new but it does not seem descriptive enough - what exactly is a custom actor? What games is the category describing? -- User:Jdowland 13:49, 4 Nov 2005 (UTC)

I tend to agree, and furthermore we have since decided that new monsters aren't notable enough for their own articles (although the mod in question could certainly have one).  I suppose it could be used for autonomous-appearing objects in ports that aren't monsters (no hit points, no respawning flag), created with scripting or whatever, but our scripting tutorials and reference material are not quite that complete yet.  :>   If the latter eventually changes, maybe we can revisit whether or not this category should exist.    Ryan W 07:34, 27 May 2007 (UTC)
Addendum: WTF?  "Actors" is extremely common when discussing scripted mods; there is an entire category tree about them on  Ryan W (living fossil) 03:22, 14 June 2020 (CDT)
