Prompt I don't know if anyone else is into pinning down the voice actors, but has anyone else every suspected that Big Bad Wolf and Officer Sydney both had the same voice actor? It sounds the same to me, but I can't find it in the credits anywhere.
Answer I can answer this one since he's already credited to the game: Yes, Officer Sidney and Wolf are both voiced by Bumper Robinson

  1. Yes Agreed with the proposal in the discussion forum, so I will also agree with it here. The Appalachian Mandalorian insignia.png 08:49, 5 November 2021 (UTC)
  2. Yes Easy pass, having all dev commentary on one page will be beneficial. We also would not have to worry about imgur links for the screenshot, and that they may expire one day. –FindabairMini-JSPnP Logo.pngThe benefit of the doubt is often doubtful. 09:54, 5 November 2021 (UTC)
  3. Yes LovinglyGaslight (talk) 12:10, 5 November 2021 (UTC)

  6. Yes Looks good. DirtyBlue929 (talk) 04:51, 7 November 2021 (UTC)
  7. Yes Needs to be handled by a template so a cave man can use it. Other than that, awesome. Scribe-Howard (waster_93) (talk) FO76 vaultboy transparent face.png 03:52, 8 November 2021 (UTC)
  8. Yes A thousand times yes. Looks great. Both image proof and text-based searchable format. Gilpo1 (talk) 17:37, 8 November 2021 (UTC)

  11. Yes Makes sense to formalize & organize like this. CamelChip (talk) 22:14, 9 November 2021 (UTC)
  12. Yes I agree with the need for this 100%. -Eckserah User Eckserah.png Head Dataminer 22:25, 9 November 2021 (UTC)



Not sure if this needs discussed now or later, but I can see the need already to have pages dedicated to specific developers and even on a per-game basis. Like a 'Carl McKevitt Fallout 76 Commentary' page, given how often he answers questions in Bethcord. This could be also applied retroactively for Avellone and Sawyer and the respective games.Gilpo1 (talk) 17:37, 8 November 2021 (UTC)

That is a really good idea. We could easily make them subpages, which would make it so easy to search! -kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 18:04, 8 November 2021 (UTC)


Vote passes, will move to implement within reference policy. -kdarrow Pickman heart.png take her for a spin! 18:03, 10 November 2021 (UTC)
