I really don't consider seeing the kids on the Video an appearance.
Good thing you're not their agent, or then the Kunitz twins/Rose twins/Hartounian twins wouldn't have gotten paid for their "non" appearance!! :)
If the actor works in new material, it's an appearance.
Newly-created flashback? New appearance.
Getting killed in the previous episode and then appearing as just a dead body lying on the floor in the next episode? New appearance.
Hearing someone's voice only (in new material)? New appearance. (JJ's recent message to Theresa was NOT new though, since it was the exact message he placed to her in the previous episode, so that was a flashback).
Pre-taped/re-aired footage of someone lying in a hospital bed (for the Marlena/Belle pre-taped episodes from years ago)? NOT a new appearance. Listed as RBO (rollback only).
Having the first scene of an episode be an airing of the last scene from the previous episode, such as for a wedding cliffhanger? NOT a new appearance. That's also known as rollback (and would account for someone being seen just in the rollback scene, such as Father Matt, and then he's not in the rest of the episode)
Just some of the things taken into consideration when compiling my daily cast lists!! PHEW! :chee:
