I found another Billy West (1950) Actor:
- Born William Richard West aka William Richard "Billy" West aka Billy West:
- http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0921942/
- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billy_West
- http://www.gazillionmovies.com/Actor/B/Bi/BillyWest.htm
http://www.ammancinemas.com/component/jlmoviedb/person/23679?ml=1
- http://www.gotfuturama.com/Information/FuturamaStaff/VoiceActors/
- http://www.themoviedb.org/person/23679

It seems the last two Billy Wests are the same. The wikipedia link is the same and all links but nndb.com and tv.com show his BY is 1950. nndb.com says 1952 and tv.com even gives back two - biography says 1951, but born says 1950.

So what to do? Change all 1952 BYs to 1950?

I was working on a profile and saw the "invalid" 1952 birth year showing up. Looking at this a couple of years later it's still a mess, but looking at the links and Google, I now tend more towards 1952 with the birth year on his personal website as the most important source.

So I just want to know if we should use 1952 as the valid birth year or is it still 1950?

I would go with 1952, treating his website as the 'official' source.

Yes, I agree, he should know, when he was born.

... otherwise he should ask his parents

If you can, that would help to make this clear once and for all.

I'm happy to take your word for it, but if you are able to add a screenshot, that should settle the matter – with his personal website, it's certainly more reliable data than Rotten Tomatoes and TV.com.

I can't see a birth year – I guess you have to be a 'friend' to see that info.

Press the print screen button on your computer, paste that image into Paint (or something similar) and then upload the file to an image hosting websites such as Imgur.

I think you need the whole hyperlink in the image tags, the one that looks a bit like this:

@Devion: to get used to usage of the brackets just have a look at the images of other users by pressing the quote button. This button places the source code of any existing post into the editor window to be analyzed.
