[edit] Anthony Skordi

Anthony Skordi does the MaleDarkElfCommoner voicetype (Includes Garyn Ienth and Slitter)

He told me on Twitter he voices Garyn Ienth. Garyn Ienth has the MaleDarkElfCommoner voicetype. Can this be put on the page? Dragon Guard (talk) 17:58, 29 June 2013 (GMT)

Link to the tweet? He would need to have been previously verified on twitter I believe for us to be able to use it. Jeancey (talk) 18:06, 29 June 2013 (GMT)
Sure, here is the link: The tweet on page says something like; 5'23' is me. Dragon Guard (talk) 19:00, 29 June 2013 (GMT)
Hmm, he isn't verified by twitter, so we might not be able to use it. Jeancey (talk) 19:14, 29 June 2013 (GMT)
He said he voiced Garyn Ienth in the video posted. So how is he not verified? Dragon Guard (talk) 19:18, 29 June 2013 (GMT)
I think what Jeancey is saying is that we don't know whether the person running that account is really anthony skordi. Celebrities can have their account verified by twitter which puts a check next to there name (like here. That page doesn't have that. --AN|L (talk) 19:41, 29 June 2013 (GMT)
(edit conflict) yep! (you beat me to explaining that) Jeancey (talk) 19:43, 29 June 2013 (GMT)
Why would he say who he voiced if he was oblivious to fact about who he voices then? It is his account. Dragon Guard (talk) 19:47, 29 June 2013 (GMT)

() The issue is verifiability. You can read more about identifying reliable sources on wikipedia. Jeancey (talk) 19:51, 29 June 2013 (GMT)

Come on, let's not be ridiculous here. Why on earth would someone create a fake Twitter account of Anthony Skordi? If he's been polite enough to confirm his role in Dragonborn, we might as well use it as a source when lacking any other reference. —Legoless (talk) 19:04, 5 August 2013 (GMT)

[edit] Johanna Torell

What is her voice type? Female Nords is vague, especially since she didn't do the FemaleNord voicetype. Vicano (talk) 20:02, 6 August 2013 (GMT)

We don't know yet for sure. The "Female Nords" is on there because that's exactly the information given in the game's credits. — ABCface 20:42, 6 August 2013 (GMT)
She plays FemaleCoward. Process of elimination is a fun thing, but I doubt it's enough to get it listed — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 07:37 on 7 July 2014 (GMT)
According to an imdb user, she voices Viola Giordano and Colette Marence, among others, although the credibility of the source is questionable. Unless there's some way of confirming it (voice comparison, information in the game's files, etc.), we can't list it on the page. Zul se onikaanLaan tinvaak 12:43, 7 July 2014 (GMT)

[edit] MaleDrunk voice

Who does the voice of the "maledrunk" type voices, like Sanguine, Brenuin, Degaine, etc? I didn't see that listed and it wasn't listed on IMDB, either. 04:35, 16 February 2014 (GMT)

The only answer is no-one knows. Bethesda haven't released the relevant information, nor has it been revealed elsewhere. Silence is GoldenBreak the Silence 04:40, 16 February 2014 (GMT)
While not necessarily conclusive, Wikipedia credits William Salyers as voicing Sanguine in his page, and Salyers lists Skyrim as one of the games he voiced on his Facebook page. 21:28, 18 February 2014 (GMT)
That doesn't appear to be a personal page the way it is worded. An email is provided so perhaps you could email him. Wikipedia has no source for the Skyrim listing, and most of the info comes from imdb, which is a wiki and isn't a certifiable source (which doesn't list Skyrim as one of his works anyway). Silence is GoldenBreak the Silence 21:44, 18 February 2014 (GMT)
Since my previous post of him confirming he was Sanguine was removed for no good reason, so I'll explain why I think the Facebook page is him and not a 3rd party. He's got all sorts possessive pronouns about being interviewed, wanting to do a Reddit AMA, working with people, participating in the Ice Bucket Challenge, going places... It definitely looks like his Facebook page. 04:08, 17 October 2014 (GMT)
That means nothing. Anyone can write it pretending to be him, and we wouldn't know for sure. They could even be pulling stuff from real things he puts out. I'm not saying it isn't him, but we have to have some sort of official confirmation. Twitter verifies accounts of celebrities and well known people so that a person looking at it can know for sure they are who they say they are. Facebook doesn't do this, so we just can't use it as a source. Jeancey (talk) 05:42, 17 October 2014 (GMT)

() Actually Facebook does verify some musicians/bands/celebrities. Verified accounts on Facebook have a blue check mark next to their names, very similar to Twitter. This account for William Salyers isn't verified. •WoahBro►talk 13:39, 17 October 2014 (GMT)

[edit] Neloth

Noticed there was a bit of contention in the archived talk page about who voice acted Neloth. I don't know how much stock UESP puts into Wikipedia, but Dwight Schultz's page there ( lists him as being Neloth's voice actor. Arthmoor (talk) 08:06, 9 June 2014 (GMT)

I just spent an hour sifting through the references in the Wikipedia article, and I can't find any mention of Skyrim in his credits. His official fansite doesn't include TESV in his bio. Unless I missed something, I would consider this unconfirmed. --Xyzzy Talk 00:19, 9 September 2014 (GMT)
Interestingly enough, this info was added to Wikipedia by a user named Ufd43765, which is the same username as someone who was blocked for adding false info to our pages. Food for thought. --Xyzzy Talk 00:26, 9 September 2014 (GMT)

[edit] Dremora

Aside from anonymous goodwill, the Dremora voices in Skyrim should be instantly recognisable to anyone who has played Oblivion. I think we can bend a little here and list Wes as the actor. —Legoless (talk) 00:37, 13 October 2014 (GMT)

And it's also stated on imdb, and I don't see why that would be wrong (if we ignore the obvious as said above) ~ Dwarfmp (talk) 16:55, 13 October 2014 (GMT)
IMDB is a user created content site, just like UESP. We cannot use anything they have as a sole source for anything. I think it would be best if someone else emailed the actor to at least double check. If we are going to use an email confirmation as proof, I would at least like a second person to receive that confirmation. Jeancey (talk) 19:25, 13 October 2014 (GMT)
I just wanted to throw it out there that even wikipedia has him voicing something in ESO. Even though they are just as much user created as us, they are still one of the most reliable user created sites out there. Lorenut (talk) 19:35, 13 October 2014 (GMT)
This is about Skyrim, not ESO. The ESO page really only has the main people right now, so we have a lot more work to do on that. If he gave confirmation once in an email, I don't see why someone else emailing him asking again would be an issue, and it would at least provide us with two separate confirmations. Jeancey (talk) 19:58, 13 October 2014 (GMT)
Well that's embarrassing! Well in any case on the same page it also says he voiced in skyrim. I am all for getting more confirmation however Jeancey. Thought i would just point that out. Lorenut (talk) 20:05, 13 October 2014 (GMT)
No worries! :) We do know he voiced things in Skyrim. I believe the only thing at issue here is the Dremora. Jeancey (talk) 20:33, 13 October 2014 (GMT)
Well i just got proof that he did in fact voice them in Skyrim. Here is a link to a tweet he sent me on twitter. Hope this helps out. Lorenut (talk) 00:41, 14 October 2014 (GMT)
Works for me since the account is twitter confirmed. Jeancey (talk) 00:42, 14 October 2014 (GMT)
Glad i could help! Lorenut (talk) 00:53, 14 October 2014 (GMT)

[edit] Organize by voice type or by actor?

The Silencer claims that it is more logical to organize this page by voice type than by actor. I don't understand the reasoning there. The name of the page is "Voice Actors", not "Voice Types". If it makes sense to organize by voice type, let's create a "Voice Types" page for that purpose. It seems hard to justify the organization of the "Voice Actors" page by anything other than actor. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 08:58 on 24 October 2014

I don't know what sort of logic you are using, but swap "Voice Types" for the word "Characters" and then look at how any media informs who played/voiced them, it is always by character. Silence is GoldenBreak the Silence 21:43, 24 October 2014 (GMT)
Silence is Golden, I believe it is more appropriate to organize the "Voice Actors" page by voice actor than by voice type. To rebut that, you claim that whenever a media presents its cast, "it is always by character". I don't see how that is relevant. Are you implying that the purpose of the "Voice Actors" page is to present the cast of characters in a traditional way? If so, then why not call the page "Cast" or "Characters" or "Cast of Characters"?
I'm not trying to be critical. I'm just trying to tease out a very simple principle of organization. If you want to present information about a character (such as who voices that character), put it on that character's page. If you want to present information about an actor (such as which characters are voiced by that actor), put it on that actor's page. The "Voice Actors" page is clearly either a page for actors, or is misnamed. If it is a page for actors, then my edits were appropriate. If it is misnamed, let's rename it. 01:41, 25 October 2014 (GMT)
Honestly, I thought it looked cleaner and was easier to find info when organized by voice actor. That way everything is in a single, sortable table. Aesthetically, I think that option is the best. I think that the point about the page name is also valid. It is called "Voice Actors" so it should be primarily about the voice actors. — Unsigned comment by Jeancey (talkcontribs) at 02:53 on 25 October 2014
This page is correctly named and presented. "Voice Actors" is the "cast" list, which is always presented by character. It is an extremely simple premise that allows for information to be found easier than the other way. Silence is GoldenBreak the Silence 11:10, 25 October 2014 (GMT)
Silence is Golden, if this is the cast list, then wouldn't it be better named as "Cast List"? You have made it clear that you think a cast list is more useful than a list of actors, but you have not made it clear why a cast list should be titled "Voice Actors". Why do you believe this page is correctly named? 15:46, 25 October 2014 (GMT)
Well, I explained how it is correctly named, I shall spell it out for you. Media presents a cast list, a list of who played who in a film presented via the main characters down to the bit part players, this allows people to see who played those characters because they will know who the character was but not always the actor. Voice actors is simply an alternate and more accurate name for the cast of a game, just as Voice Types is the alternate for characters. Silence is GoldenBreak the Silence 16:50, 25 October 2014 (GMT)
I must dispute your assertion that "Voice actors is simply an alternate and more accurate name for the cast of a game". "Cast of Characters", "Cast List", and "Cast" all describe a game's cast of characters more accurately than "Voice Actors". Precedent seems to be on the side of calling it "Cast" -- that's what the game itself does in its credits. Ultimately, this comes down to a question of judgment. I respect your judgment, but I'd also like to know what others say. Is a game's cast of characters best referred to as "Voice Actors" or as "Cast of Characters"? 17:44, 25 October 2014 (GMT)

() I would say Voice Actors for a game. However, if Bethesda calls them the "Cast", I think it is only proper to go with what Bethesda says (I haven't read through the credits so I don't know what it says). ~ Ad intellige (talk) 17:48, 25 October 2014 (GMT)
