  • Hey there, sad to see all of my additions/changes to some of the wiki articles removed. I used to frequent these Wikis and attempt to add to and fix certain articles, however overzealous mods such as yourself put an end to this former hobby.

    The articles I added to could have used more descriptions and nods to the rest of the series, for example RE2 (1998) is technically just as canon as RE2 (2019), just as RE1 is to REmake. If not moreso.

    RE2 (2019) removed a lot of the story of the original and I feel it is an inferior retelling of the original tale. But rather then undermine the Remake's version of the story, I thought it best to put both descriptions in for fans of the series that prefer the original version of the story. Nods such as Leon S Kennedy being employed US-STRATCOM should also not have been removed, as it's a true tidbit that many fans might not be aware of. Likewise with the Paraguas Line Company's ownership of the Spencer Rain ocean liner, and the mediocre description of the Spencer Rain Incident ('Tentative'?, lol).

    This wiki's goal is to map out RE's world, and small additions like that can go a long way to making this universe coherent. If this wiki is not open to fan submissions, then you may as well lock all articles from editing and make it a Monopoly-situation where you're the only writer.

    • I am really confused by your comment here.

    • 1. We already did articles that show “accounts differ” to express discrepancies between games. It’s counter productive to just do a near carbon copy of the same events in another section but with a few alterations, and we’re not going to just list all possible events in a game just to protect fans’ feelings over the discrepancies (take note Jill and Chris’ RE1 sections are quite bare - can you imagine if we had to do alternate biographies for whether or not they confronted Wesker/were in jail?) Doing one biography and just highlighting the parts that differ is far better in the long run. Perhaps even expand on the contrasts in a Further Notes section. Further, as I mentioned in the article summary reverting your Chief Irons edit that created a 1998/2019 split, you left the old section containing references to the 1998 game in the amended “2019” biography.

      2. Duval killing people was not a terrorist attack. By definition there has to be a political motive. Maybe if we’d had the Spencer Rain and Atlantic facility pages together we could have talked about the terrorist aspect of the other stuff.

      3. No idea why you’re salty over the word “tentative”, since it’s to indicate how we don’t actually know the name of the incident (Mansion Incident is written in stone on the other hand).

      4. We don’t Known Spencer Rain’s connection to Paraguas Line Company.

      5. I didn’t edit the Bruce page. Maybe you should ask whoever edited the page after you why they changed it.

      6. No idea what you’re talking about me running a Monopoly. I’ve barely edited this past week if you check my contributions page. And before that it was 2 days of bot assisted spelling corrections.

  • I wouldn't have a problem with this. We do entirely too much assuming in this regard anyway. We have Dorian as "Deceased", Rita as "Alive", Harry as "Unknown". The fact is that Harry is the only one factually correct at this point. I know many of us would like to assume they survived and then many of us seem to want to assume they died, but nobody actually knows; It's all speculation at this point. If we don't change them to "Unknown", removing the category entirely might just fix the problem. Their status (the characters we are certain of) could simply have their status added to the description if need be. Flare1983 (talk) 13:57, November 2, 2019 (UTC)

    • I said what I meant about being in the community, don't try to make a technical argument over semantics please. So again, you don't understand, you keep demonstrating so. The wiki should not be structured to support every possible way info can be presented. Many people have tried to argue this, its a bad idea.

      Noting absolutely everything on the wiki makes things cluttered, harder to use, appear less reliable, and other issues. Adding info isn't always a net gain. Having a long list of categories of superfluous traits goes against the things you've agreed the wiki should be.

      Expecting editors to check 3,000+ pages every time anyone on whim decides to add a new category just isn't realistic and honestly, pretty offensive. There's no way to keep up with that which in turns, makes the wiki unreliable. Where as not having those categorizes at all, doesn't affect reliability, which you failed to explain why it would. And yes, having to spend time and energy to debate if a trait categories applies to pages is very bad. Decisions should be clear enough that there shouldn't be question when applying the edits themselves en masse. The fact you aren't aware of these types of things demonstrated you aren't familiar enough with wikis in general to be having this debate.

      Again, the categories do not affect reliability and accuracy in any positive way. I told you just saying "editing shouldn't be a concern" isn't going to convince us. Facilitating good editing is what makes the wiki more reliable and accurate, the thing you say should be the main concern. Allowing random categories to be made will realistically make things less reliable when we can't keep up checking 3000 pages every time.

      I'm sorry but you really just do not know what you're talking about. I'm going to have to end it here.

  • I was searching earlier for a certain interview but didn't find it here, these:

    https://residentevil.com.br/revil-interviews-yasuhiro-anpo-resident-evil-revelations-2-game-director/

    http://projectumbrella.net/articles/Yasuhiro-Ampo-Interview-Project-Umbrella

    Should they be added?



    Btw, Neil Fisher wasn't infected by t-phobos, right? Because he was the contact of Alex and his bracelet was always green. I doubt he'll participate in a trap he helped with, at least that's what I always assumed, no?

    I'm saying this because because in t-phobos's page, it's written "(mixture of t-Phobos and Uroboros)" in front of him.
