We're only using that category to put down things not intended to be canon with anything, or minigames which are incompatible with the main game's story. Examples of such articles that qualify for this category are Assignment Ada and Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D. Other articles, such as Operation Raccoon City's storyline aspects and comic stuff, should be notified as being outside of mainstream canon with the appropriate template.
We have, for the past few weeks, being going through the process of 'de-trivialization' in articles. Simplified- we're getting rid of them. Please cease adding in any more trivia, as it may be subject to removal soon after.
A few of the guys on Chat were concerned over your edit to Rebecca Chambers. Their argument is that there is no evidence that the slime from the leeches can cause infection; it seems more like they're biting everyone else. Continuing with that, it doesn't appear that the t-Virus can spread simply by touching the skin - it has to go into the body.
With the Eliminators, it is a simple case of chance - biting is a terrible means of infecting people because the virus would have to rely on infected saliva making it into the wound. If the saliva that made it isn't infected, you get no zombies. If Rebecca was bitten repeatedly, or the wound was much more severe, then the chances of her turning into a zombie would have been greatly increased. There's no evidence that she's naturally immune; we have only one case of somebody being immune, period.
Fair enough. I don't quite see what was wrong with my comment about it being a possible oversight (since it *clearly* breaks skin, and according to Irons that's all it takes).
I thought there was a file to that effect in Zero concerning the leeches; I'm not as familiar with that one, so I don't know for sure.
In any case, I don't think I was the person who originally posted that comment in any case (although it's possible; I've slept since then). In any case, I do recall editing for grammar on that page (it's what I do), so that may be why we got into that little edit war skirmish thing. No disrespect intended, though.
It's okay - it was obvious that you had no bad intentions, so just notifying you was expected. A little side note, however - we're going through a process of removing significant parts of Trivia sections thanks to this blog. We've found that using the word 'trivia' makes people just throw in anything they can think of. Really, the section is for information that might be necessary for the page, but you haven't found the right section to put it in, or it'll involve remodelling a paragraph and you don't want to risk it.
Understood. I know I for one have a habit of adding nonsensical stuff to the Trivia pages. I enjoy reading them, since they have all kinds of really, really useless but kind of interesting information, but I can understand getting rid of them.
