I recognized it as the DiMera couch, so that's why I counted it as the DiMera Mansions set. If they just focused on the kid's faces and you couldn't really see any part of the set, then yes, you'd be correct. I'd have to list it as a Phone Limbo set.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
That counts? Interesting.
It was a new scene, why would it not count? If that was the case, then you'd be saying I shouldn't count Johnny, Allie & Sydney as appearing today.
Yeah, it makes sense, especially when you put it that way (because I never expected you to not
count that as an appearance for Johnny, Allie, and Sydney -- they have to get paid for filming that clip at some point, after all), but I just didn't expect the set
to get counted, since I would have just considered it a scene within a scene or one of those Phone Limbo things that you sometimes mention when you're doing teasers (meaning that I would have assumed that, if anything, you'd count it as a Phone Limbo "set" instead of the actual set). Like I said, I just found it interesting, like most of your random tidbits of information.
Your later post, where you listed various examples of things that do and don't count as appearances, leaves me with a question -- how would you count an appearance on a webisode? It's technically new content, but it never airs on television. I can't even recall if Days has ever had any such content -- I think
that they have, but I'm not sure what the content would have involved (although, for whatever reason, the first two things that spring to my mind are the Santo / Colleen debacle and the Touch the Sky debacle) -- but other soaps definitely have. I'm assuming that you'd count them (and, I suppose, the primetime Days episodes) as appearances on a different, but related, "television show", but that's just a guess. And would such appearances count against an actor's contractual guarantees?
I don't believe "Days" has ever had any webisodes before, but if they did, that would count as an entirely different series. The Primetime Emmys (and maybe the Daytime Emmys?) have a separate category for webisodes, so that makes it an easy distinction that the two (the series and the webisodes) are not technically related.
"Passions" has several internet-only series, one about the Monk, and a few others, and I never watched any of them, due to time constraints, so that's how I'd deal with it regarding "Days" (although I'd probably watch the Days ones). They wouldn't count in the rankings.
The 3 primetime "Days" specials do though, they are included in my rankings!
