law[edit]

"Gun replica laws in the USA?" This is extremely dubious; could someone tell me which, and why it is they don't apply to, say, Time Crisis? —Casey J. Morris 01:07, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Survivoramericabox.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Survivoramericabox.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

To Kurt the RE:Survivor fan[edit]

Would you at least engage in polite discourse on your reasoning for obliterating any reference to Resident Evil: Survivor being a Spin-off? It is a part of the Gun Survivor series that follows its own numbering scheme, and includes a DinoCrisis spin-off.. Stop acting like this is somehow personal. Finite (talk) 00:22, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Finite, regardless of what the game is, I feel I should add that simply stating the game is ignored is wrong. There are references to the Survivor series' plot in the main series, so they are quite legitimate. As for as the label "spin-off", I'd probably be more inclined to consider them "expanded universe" titles. Gamer Junkie 01:30, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Ark's profile[edit]

Ark Thompson Gender: Male Born: 1976 Ocuppation: Anti-Umbrella agent Martial: Single Height: 5' 7" Weight: 169Lb

Classify to this profile of Ark's. Capcom believe he's the only protagonist in the game, since he was assigned by one of the STARS memebers. 203.127.190.2 (talk) 18:55, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

I don't think this information is accurate. If Ark was born in 1976, that would make him just 22 in 1998. I think he was older than that. Also, Ark's not an anti-Umbrella agent, he's a private detective. Also, he was hired by Leon Kennedy, who was not a member of the S.T.A.R.S. unit. Gamer Junkie T / C 11:18, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Eurocom[edit]

What's the source of Eurocom being the developer of the PC version? The game doesn't credit them (in fact, it just has the original PlayStation credits), and they don't credit the game in their website either. I tend to believe that they didn't really develope this, and it was an unknown Asian developer who did it. If anyone disagrees and proves against, I'll remove that.

Requested move 1[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: page not moved per discussion below. There's not a particularly strong case for either title over the other, so there's no point adding a move to the history over a colon. If one format shows itself to be dominant in the future, then we'll go with it; for now, we've got redirects anyway. - GTBacchus(talk) 04:31, 3 January 2011 (UTC)



Resident Evil: SurvivorResident Evil Survivor — Colon not included on any of the game cases (JPN, NA, PAL). Prime Blue (talk) 21:23, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

  • Oppose there is no hyphen in the current title anyways. 65.94.45.167 (talk) 05:29, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
When I say "hyphen", I usually...uh...mean colon. Sorry. Prime Blue (talk) 05:53, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose; reliable sources such as the reviews linked in the article use the colon. The colon is merely the way that the title is separated from the series name (cf. Star Trek: First Contact; colons are rarely used on movie posters and game covers, but they are usually used when the title is written in prose). Powers T 13:30, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
Colon was not included on Capcom's sites either, though: [1], [2]. It is however included on the boxes for Code: Veronica, so I don't think it was unintentionally omitted. Metacritic has it without the colon, too. Prime Blue (talk) 14:21, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
Tricky. Usage seems split, then. Powers T 14:45, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
Since usage is split among reliable sources, but the article title is not really affected by WP:UCN and the official title used by Capcom does not include the colon, I'm holding on to the move request. Prime Blue (talk) 21:56, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

The result of the move request was: Page moved. -- Hadal (talk) 22:18, 26 June 2011 (UTC)



Resident Evil: SurvivorResident Evil Survivor – Colon not included in all primary sources ([3], [4], [5], [6], [7], [8], [9], [10], [11]) and various reliable independent sources ([12], [13], [14], [15], [16]). Prime Blue (talk) 10:24, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

  • comment same move request as last time (6 months ago) by same nominator; Primary sources are not preferred, tertiary sources are. Per last time, secondary and tertiary sources seem to use the colon. 65.94.47.63 (talk) 06:38, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Weak support. No real consensus from last RM, only that the usage appeared to be split. When usage is split in secondary reliable sources, as seems to be the case here, I think it's the sensible option to go with the official, non-idependent sources as a sort of 'tie-breaker'. Jenks24 (talk) 10:28, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Support. Secondary sources make it plain that either is completely acceptable, and the simpler name is the official one, so it's sensible to use it and move on. Andrewa (talk) 01:20, 21 June 2011 (UTC)
