Was the term croupier ever used in dialog? I know the script of "The Royale" used it, but all I remember them using in dialog is the term dealer. - Archduk3 21:00, March 23, 2011 (UTC)

It has been used in the scripts for both "The Royale" and "Badda-Bing..." but I don't believe it has been referenced itself in dialogue. I just saw a needed article and so went with it since it was in the script, and we do have other articles that haven't been specifically mentioned but included because it's common sense. Crown Victoria comes to mind. --| TrekFan Open a channel 21:29, March 23, 2011 (UTC)

Since the term dealer was, that's where the article should be. We can also drop the bg info on the term croupier, since that's what Wikipedia is for, and the text is dangerously close to being a copyright violation from them anyway. - Archduk3 21:35, March 23, 2011 (UTC)

The Crown Vic is different, as it can be identified by appearance(since it was in reality one) and an alternate name was not given. In this case, we should use what it was called in dialog first, anything else should be a redirect.--31dot 22:03, March 23, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah OK then. Go ahead and change it to "dealer". --| TrekFan Open a channel 22:17, March 23, 2011 (UTC)

Now that I've had time to go through the scripts in detail, it seems the croupiers and dealers were distinctly different professions, so we need another page for dealers. - Archduk3 00:47, March 24, 2011 (UTC)

If it is different, then yes, absolutely different articles. :) We seemed to assume they were the same before Archduk's research.--31dot 01:02, March 24, 2011 (UTC)

In the real world they are the same, but a "dealer" wouldn't run a dice game. The scripts use both terms for different people, both in speaking and non-speaking roles, depending on if the game was cards or dice, so we need two pages since the only spoken term is dealer. - Archduk3 01:18, March 24, 2011 (UTC)
