Sonic CD Voice Actress[edit]

Amy had no spoken diolog in Sonic CD and even if she did it would only be a Japanese actress like how Sonic only has a Japanese voice actor. DreamsDreams (talk) 14:09, 17 August 2011 (UTC)DreamsDreams

Do we REALLY need a pic of a guy cosplaying as Amy????[edit]

Seriously, what the hell? Is that meant to be a joke? Is it vandalism? I seriously have no idea why that picture is there. I mean, it could be for reception, but can we at least get A GIRL cosplaying?? A guy cosplaying is creepy.SailorSonic —Preceding undated comment added 18:17, 6 September 2011 (UTC).

As the person who took that picture, I have to say, yes, we do need it in the article. You may be still stuck in the 50's, but I don't think the rest of Wikipedia is, so no, a man dressed up as his favorite video game character isn't creepy. I have readded it back in the article, and I will give you some advice: go back to your hillbilly town if you don't want to be in the 21st century. -SonicTheHedgehogForever (talk) 01:48, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

What are you talking about, in the 50's? I'm 13 years old, Einstein. And I'm NOT a hillbilly. I was asking the point of the picture being in the article. Is it for reception??? Is it meant to show the popularity of the character? What's the point of it being in the article? I see no point to it being in the article except for making people laugh at the sight of a man dressing like a girl. SailorSonic

Never mind, someone deleted it. Guess it wasn't needed in the article after all. SailorSonic

Bonasio and Sarkeesian[edit]

The reason why I deleted Bonasio’s and Anita Sarkeesian's critical remarks are as follows: it is WP:SPS. Bonasio wrote the piece on her own website, Sarkeesian wrote it on her own Youtube-page. Unlike the other criticism, there was no editorial overview on their text, making it only their own view. As the guidelines say: anyone can create a personal web page or publish their own book, and also claim to be an expert in a certain field. But that doesn’t mean Wikipedia has to include their opinion here. Best regards,Jeff5102 (talk) 15:34, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

This objection isn't wholly without merit, but then why can we list, say, reviews by Roger Ebert or editorials by Kotaku? I don't think she knows nearly enough about games to be a source I'd trust for actual reviewing, sure, but she's a well-known, if not well-liked, public figure in the gaming industry and readers may want to know about what she thinks just as well as, say, GameSpot or Joystiq - plus, unlike someone in the same category such as JonTron, she passes notability by a wide margin. Tezero (talk) 17:48, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
We CAN list Roger Ebert's reviews, since he wrote them for the Chicago Sun-Times, which means that his work was subject to editorial oversight. The same might be said of Kotaku, since it is part of Gawker Media, although I am not sure about that one. However, Youtube-vids and personal websites do not have editorial oversight. Therefore, they do not pass the rulings considering WP:SPS. However, if you can find reliable third party sources that quote Sarkeesian's vids or Bonasia's articles regarding Amy Rose, please insert them.Jeff5102 (talk) 11:49, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
Roger Ebert had his own website and Siskel & Ebert. I'd agree with you (and would've from the start) about nixing Sarkeesian and Bonasio if they were being used for citable facts, but they're only there to provide the opinions of well-known public figures in the game industry. While the individual reviews aren't backed up by secondary sources, the creators' importance is. Their case isn't unique in WP:VG - it's similar for, say, ScrewAttack and Jay Is Games. That being said, this argument keeps coming up over and over, so I want to put it to rest once and for all at WT:VG. Tezero (talk) 14:35, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
I see. Well, thanks for taking that action. Now the experts will discuss it, I think that my work here is done. Best regards,Jeff5102 (talk) 20:21, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
