At the English cast column of Dragon Ball Super, some things are a bit inconsistent, for example...
Tiffany Patterson is a separate name used by Caitlin Glass for some reason ('Tiffany being her middle name, and Patterson is her husband's last name'), but to credit her in the Dragon Ball Super database as Tiffany Patterson is pretty ridiculous seeing that Caitlin herself clearly confirmed that she is FUNimation's Vados. That being said, I tried to fix it, but instructions on using (ERROR >) is vague.

Any help?

The credits on the Encyclopedia series pages are based on whatever the credits in the show reads. On the Encyclopedia people pages, it would list all names the person is credited as, and list all roles under all names and pseudonames.

In this case, it seems that the page for Tiffany Patterson should be merged with Caitlin Glass, and the precisions of "Caitlin Glass" should be removed from those roles.


As for how to submit the error report, you would first hit the "report an error" option at the bottom of the page, then hit the (i) icon next to the entry, and select "error". Once you are on that page, you simply select that the information is erroneous, explain what the correct information is and/or why it is incorrect, and provide any sources you have.

If "Tiffany Patterson" is the name that is used in the official credits, then that is the name that should be listed in the Encyclopedia. It does not matter if it is known to be pseudonym. If there is sufficient proof that it is the same person (and there is in this case), then the entries can be merged (and I've done that).
