How do I make my talk template? -Hylian Hobbit 19:02, June 17, 2014 (UTC)

Um... hello? -Hylian Hobbit 16:46, June 21, 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, we're in last time busy. Just take a look here: Template:Word Bubble. Create a new page with the page name "Template:Hylianhobbit", or for short "Template:HH". Copy these codes and put it in the template page:
{{Word Bubble 
|image      = 
|color      = 
|color2     = 
|textcolor  = 
|textcolor2 = 
|line       = 
|fonttype   = 
|name       = 
|sig        = 
|time       = {{{time}}}
|text       = {{{text}}}
}}
Next step: Fill the fields. If you need help by creating your template, just ask me. Click on the button "publish" (or "save"?) and you can use your template by using this code:
{{<name of template>|text=Blah blah blah.|time=~~~~~}}
Hope it helps you.  Ludgerusээ 18px-Phai_Screenshot_Skyward_Sword.png ~be happy 11:47, June 22, 2014 (UTC)
I can't figure out how to make a template page. When I go to the help page for it, it gives me a link to Template:Example, and says I am supposed to click the create button on that. But when I click on the link it says the page no longer exists. -Hylian Hobbit 23:56, June 25, 2014 (UTC)

Infobox picture

Ancient Robot
Hylianhobbit – "@!#?@!" --Q*bert
TALK
So just out of curiosity, how do we decide which picture to put in an article's infobox?

I'm not entirely sure how that's decided. I know that artwork is preferred over screenshots and .png is preferred over .jpg. And ZW files are a last resort. That's all I remember about infobox images.

Ludgerus XXIV – "Herbstende, Winter,
Frühlingsschlamm und Regen,
Euch stillen Zeiten schlägt mein Herz entgegen,
Der kalte Dämmer eures Nebelgraus
Umhüllt wie Bahrtuch mich und Totenhaus." (Charles Baudelaire)

Artworks are preferred more than screenshots. You can add screenshots, but only with the execption, if there is not an artwork avaible for an article like the Ancient Robot from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

Basically, the best picture out there is the one we use. You know, nothing in the background, a relevant picture, etc. Everything already said above.
Ancient Robot
Hylianhobbit – Dear Humanity: We regret being alien b******s. We regret coming to Earth. And we most definitely regret that the Corps just blew up our raggedy-a** fleet! --Sgt. Johnson
TALK
What about which game the picture is from?
Wallmaster (Ocarina of Time)
Ceiling Master – I can't hear you, it's too dark!
TALK Contributions · Editcount
I would tentatively say from the most recent main series game, but Link and Zelda don't have their ALBW pictures, so I guess it's just whichever looks best. Which sounds horribly subjective, but it's true. And artwork is always better.
Ancient Robot
Hylianhobbit – "People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly, timey wimey... stuff." --Tenth Doctor
TALK
So then why do we still have Link and Zelda's TP artwork in their infoboxes?
Wizzrobe (The Minish Cap)
Green Rupee – "Pictures taken instantaneously! I'm a photographic genius, if I do say so myself! Okay, get ready for an instant memory! Look at the camera... Ready... Say, "fuzzy pickles."" — The Camera Man

Nothing's wrong with the TP artwork so there's no need to change it.
Wallmaster (Ocarina of Time)
Ceiling Master – You have a block of Swiss cheese. If more cheese = more holes, and more holes = less cheese, does more cheese = less cheese?
TALK Contributions · Editcount
Yeah, don't go by the recent game thing. That's not right. But it's just... the best one. I don't know how else to put it.
Ancient Robot
Hylianhobbit – Dear Humanity: We regret being alien b******s. We regret coming to Earth. And we most definitely regret that the Corps just blew up our raggedy-a** fleet! --Sgt. Johnson
TALK
Oh, sorry I was going by the recent game thing. Thanks for explaining all that to me.
