We removed the category because it had become an arbitrary one on the wiki. It wasn't being used by editors to find existing characters and it didn't seem to be used that often by readers either. That being said, there are no plans to reintroduce the category.
Characters in the franchise can be found via the characters navigation template. If you're looking for any specific female character, we'd be happy to help out.
Because some who controlled the wikis doesn't want to upset anyone and so don't want to included gender anymore because that it seem as being intolerance or politically incorrect. This is the same on other wikis, for example Arrowverse. But I gave up trying to argued as I was blocked for two weeks.
As for me, gender exist as a character trait for each characters. If a character is trans or non-blinary, etc then we can put them in separated categories or leave the categories off.
It does a disservice to the wiki and anyone trying to used it.
I was in the meeting that ruled that the sex characters were pointless. It was all about how a category of 2000 people from 21 universes was pointless since it doesn't work to simplify information retrieval. No one was talking about political correctness, trans activism or getting rid of anything upsetting.

First, you gave me "reasons" none of which I actually think are true. I think they are just excuses for the real reason, of not wanting to have a gender categories for the characters.
Second, with that I didn't misrepresent anything. I said what I think is right (those I could had added that I was gavee a long explations with reasons). You can disagreed with that but honestly almost everything you said I think is a falsehood.

1: It doesn't work to simplify information retrieval - Does that even matter? Nope.
2: You was in the meeting that ruled that the sex characters were pointless - so a decided was make that the gender of a character is pointless and I wonder why that decided was make? And I don't buy it was because a category of 2000 peoples from 21 universes. All of the characters are one category and then subdivide then down based on several factors (series, gender, etc.). That is how structure work. Everyone in the meeting make a decision that regardless of what you said was influences by their views of gender.
I'm just wondering why Category: Female characters was deleted but Category: Male characters, Category: Ambiguously-sexed characters, and Category: Characters by sex are all still around, months later. It's no skin off my nose but it seems blatantly inconsistent to argue "We should delete Category: Female characters because categorizing characters by gender serves no purpose" while retaining every other gender-based category.
I didn't personally put it in the wanted list, and its not simply weather or not if it is a weapon. It doesn't function like the rest in the game. It makes the most sense to keep it in a list, otherwise it begs the question should other skills get their own pages.
Special:Wantedpages isn't an actual list of pages WE want - that would go on the "to do list". That special page is a list of pages which don't exist, but are linked somewhere. If a user came here and created "ojieofjwjfiewjfw" as an article; it would appear on the WantedPages after being deleted because they'd have received a bot edit congratulating them for editing "ojieofjwjfiewjfw".
Just wanted to say hi and see if you had any interest in participating in one of Wikia’s Guided Tours. “What the heck is a Guided Tour?” you ask? Good question. Put simply, it’s an article where admins from various Wikis describe their fandom to people who might not know anything about it. Here’s an example for you to check out: http://community.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Mhadick/Guided_Tour:_Space_Opera
Think of it as an entryway for people looking to get into the stuff you enjoy. In this case, we’re highlighting Horror/Survival Horror games, and we think you’d have some great input to offer. Anyway, please let me know if you’re interested when you get a chance, and thanks for all your contributions!
Have a question for you. Wikia is planning creating some cool content here to celebrated the launch of Resident Evil Retribution-- like a game-to film comparison, a retrospective of the movies, a zombie showdown, etc-- all in blogs on the wiki. Was wondering if we could create a portal in the right rail of the main page, similar in design to the 'Upcoming Release', which listed links to these fun blogs posts... Let me know your thoughts!
This sounds particularly interesting. We tried a game/film comparison page before, but I think it was removed a couple years back (too many entries saying, simply "this character is in the films, only"); a better-administrated version (in this case, a blog) would be feasible. I asked on Chat and there's no negative-feedback about it. One question, though - would it require extensive alteration of the main page through shifting different boxes or replace the current Blogs list for the time-being?
Cool, glad you're open to it...what I was thinking was just creating a box, same size as the Upcoming Release, that sits above it and has links to this content...this would push the right rail content down a bit....The other way to do it would be to simply highlight the blogs in the slider. Whichever you guys prefer.
I've just modified the Slider template to better illustrate the current set-up. I experimented with the template. We can modify the title text which appears on each gallery section, but we cannot modify the "linktext" description. Either we'd need another landscape Retribution image for the Slider or we can have the title link to the Retribution article, with the "read more..." linking to the informational blog portal.
