Do we really..[edit]

..need articles on voice actors? BNK [E|T|C] 19:26, August 10, 2010 (UTC)

I'm going to bring this up again. I feel it's unnecessary to have articles for voice actors; as of now, we only have three of them, out of the 50+ voice actors in the game. In fact, I even added something about this here, which is currently a proposal at the moment. It specifically states that separate articles about voice actors are not allowed. However, since it's only a proposal at the moment, it can be easily adjusted depending on this decision. Plus, we can easily link to voice actor articles on other NIWA wikis (or not link them at all), and this page should be enough to satisfy our needs. So, what are your thoughts on this: delete or keep? Rtzxy Reflect.jpg Reflect! 22:05, 19 November 2014 (EST)
Sure, Charles Martinet may be a prominent voice actor, but he's more known for his voice acting for Mario characters, so I agree that we could change whatever links that lead to his page to interwiki links. Ditto for Bill Rogers. Berrenta (talk) 12:43, 20 November 2014 (EST)

So, Rtzxy, one of the reasons you don't want this page is because your proposed (not accepted) policy doesn't agree with it? PikaSamus (talk) PikaSamus 13:15, 20 November 2014 (EST)

Not quite. In fact, I added the "no voice actor articles" part after I added the deletion suggestion here. The reason I want this deleted it because I feel it's just unnecessary, and added the info of this to the policy afterwards. I probably worded that horribly, so I see the confusion, but this deletion suggestion has nothing to do with the policy proposal. Rtzxy Reflect.jpg Reflect! 14:57, 20 November 2014 (EST)

If we're giving Smashers an article each we can definitely give voice actors an article as well. 68.198.145.124 12:30, 22 December 2014 (EST)

  • Oppose per 68.198.145.124 VA's are just as notable as Smashers especially when we are talking Mario's voice actor. -Mr. Guye (talk) 13:50, 2 January 2015 (EST)

Support deletion. The inclusion of Charles Martinet's article (and Bill Rogers's) creates an inconsistency relating to voice actor's in general; the alternative to deleting them would involve creating pages for all such VAs, most of which would likely have little to no information on them, much like this page. The inverse of this, including a small sentence or two about the voice actor on the character's page, would be far more conducive.

Support; Duh! we have a list of voice actors page. Why create a seperate article about one of them? Smashworker101 (talk) 16:45, 8 February 2015 (EST)

Support. Let's let Mario Wiki handle this one. --DarkPitIsUnderrated (talk) 17:08, 24 February 2015 (EST)

Bump and support. Few of the voice actors are notable enough to deserve their own page, and those who do should be treated the same. We already have a page listing voice actors and their Smash roles; if we link to anything else on their, it would be a Wikipedia article on them.

Support: Sure. Martinet is, by far, the most memorable Mario voice actor. But...we're a Smash Bros. wiki. We don't really need to focus on Mario crap. AidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNGAidan the Aura Master 17:52, 9 March 2015 (EDT)

Supoort, Maybe, we should instead link to the other wiki or Wikipedia? --PPS KoRo, King of Smash 64 Knowledge, and bad grammar....and bad puns (talk) 09:29, 30 March 2015 (EDT)
