So, what now? i am just putting this cause I've no idea what to do, what was the "to do" list again?

Dear everyone, I've been a Zelda player for a long time now. Ever since I played Majora's Mask it has been my favorite game of all time (I'm not interested in debating which Zelda game is best). The intricate details of the characters in Clock Town, learning their schedules, the manipulation of time... it's such a rich and complex world. I feel like there is a lot of depth to Majora that I feel is worth exploring (perhaps even by scholars in universities). This game is absolutely incredible. Does anyone else feel this way about Majora's Mask or any of the other Zelda games? I feel it is a major accomplishment. Also, does anyone know of a place online where people discuss possible symbolism, themes... serious analysis of the games (not just strategy guides). Thanks, Majora's Mask Fan

That favorite race poll is missing a few races...I wanted to vote for Garo, but after looking through the listed races a few times, I didn't see them. I was willing to accept that, since they played a fairly minor role in only one game. But then I looked for Deku and didn't see them, and they play a fairly substantial role in Majora's Mask as one of the main races, as well as a smaller but still significant role in Ocarina of Time. Also, some of the races there are a little unnecessary...I mean, trees? Really? Sorry if I sound like I'm complaining, I'm just saying that the poll doesn't have the best selection. I really wish we could edit those without totally resetting them.

small question, how often do we change that poll anyway? Or do we just change it after 3000 votes or something? Midna Rocks

I was severely disappointed there were no Deku on the poll... Ah well, I assume for a poll that asks about all races is bound to miss one or two, but Deku? Sadness.

I don't think anyone will be thinking about something that isn't even on the mainpage anymore. Take a chill pill dude.

I'm finding that no one goes on suggest a poll to actually vote on others' polls. It makes me sad because then the polls don't change and people complain about that, unknowing that they could change it. My idea is that maybe we could make the suggest a poll button MUCH MUCH bigger and change it to vote for a new poll, and then on that page put in that you can also make your own poll.

Shouldn't we take down that "statment" OcarinaHero made? Most people aren't takeing it seriously, and it has no source to back it up.

Actually, the main page is only semi-protected, so any account older than four days can edit it. The idea of semi-protecting is to prevent IPs from editing a certain page and also discouraging people from creating accounts just to mess stuff up. Lisa URAQT Tetra 03:16, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

I'm the one that added it, actually. The reason you can't change it on the main page is because it's transcluded from a template, therefore the text isn't stored on the main page. I'll go change it. Baltro [ talk · edits ] 05:40, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

Triforce and I talked it over on the shoutbox, and I wanted to request a Wikia Spotlight for our wiki. All it does it they make an ad for our wiki, and it's displayed at the bottom and side of all wikis on Wikia for a few weeks. This is supposed to help us get new contributors. I'm going to do the request, but as I'm not an administrator, I need to have admin approval, so this is really just where Triforce can say yes and I'll have a permanent link. But just so you know you all know, when you see ads for us at the bottom of pages :).

the coolest idea for a new zelda game

i think it would be cool if in a zelda game you were cel shaded link{celda} trying to collect the musical instruments in the zelda games. Then when you have them you have to get a special thing that brings back the old links when your at there graves{at the end of a cave}. youd then conduct them all with the wind waker. All the final bosses would also come back when you reserect the links{only the final form}.When you play with all the links it brings you the master sword. You then have to kill the final boss with the help of the other links. im jacob wakley aged 11

TALK REVIEWS-FEATURED REVIEW-TMC WALKTHROUGH-EDIT COUNT-03:13, July 22, 2010 (UTC)
Theory sections are an integral part of articles. Here at Zeldapedia, we try to cover all areas of The Legend of Zelda series. So basically, if there's something that's huge among Zelda fans, for instance, the split timeline theory, we usually put that kind of information in. However, we do keep unecessary theories, fanon, and trivia out most of the time.
OK then, but keep in mind that my offer still stands. {{subst:User:Mr. Anon/signature}} 03:19, July 22, 2010 (UTC)
Thats a problem....these "theories" are hard to claim "relevant". I really do think these theories are useless....Some of them are ok, but pretty obvious. You see "cover all areas" means cover all areas that are in Zelda, these things are outside of zelda. The theories aren't even real theories. Such as Link searching or Navi in majora's mask (even though non-canon media makes these theories technically true). I Also think we should remove them. If there's something among fans, then let it stay among fans. basically fans aren't part of zelda. they're just the outside group. It makes this wiki incredibly incredibly BIASIlaria Mask (talk) 22:30, July 25, 2011 (UTC)
Everything is kept in clearly marked theory sections, so I don't see how it's biased. While there are some weird theory sections that I think are kind of silly and wouldn't be against removing, some of the theories are much better, even to the point of being practically proven, such as the Deku Butler's Son's spirit being in the Deku Mask, the Skull Kid in Majora's Mask being the same one from Ocarina of Time, A Link to the Past's Seven Maidens being the successors to Ocarina of Time's Seven Sages, etc.. To remove these theories would be to remove relevant information about their subjects and would leave large gaps in our information. To be honest, especially when you consider theories like the ones I've mentioned, I think it would be a great deal more biased to leave them out because they are technically not proven unequivocally in-game. I also don't see how something can be considered biased when it puts even the nigh-proven theories in marked sections that say that it may or may not be true. Another point is that the Zelda universe has many vague connections and undefined gaps in the story, and intelligent evidence-supported speculation of how things fit together is a big part of interpreting/enjoying the series. It'd be a disservice to our readers to leave them in the dark about these things.--FierceDeku 22:58, July 25, 2011 (UTC)
Actually this could still be bias quite easily. I had never seen any other wiki that actually adds a theory section for most of the articles. ANd if there are hints and things suggesting something, than they are a lot more than just "theories" that would be "allusions" or "trivia" but not "theories". And, no it's better to remove "bias" than to deal with it. The stuff that has been hinted can be said "it has been suggested" but you intentionally allow a conclusion to what is suggested, and that is bias. THese are based off fans. don't you think you need to remove the "fandom" from the "facts"?Ilaria Mask (talk) 02:14, July 26, 2011 (UTC)
We are definitely not the only wiki with theory sections. As far as things that are hinted at by the game, it sounds like you're just complaining about the format of putting such things in theory sections instead of mentioning them offhand in-article. You could start a forum about doing things differently if feel so inclined. I think that having unmarked theories in article can work sometimes but it can also make it difficult to separate concrete facts from probable facts, and requires wording that is excessively filled with qualifiers like if/imply/could/etc.. I'm not saying we "deal with it" when it comes to biases, I'm saying we are not being biased because our theory sections are marked as such. We don't say that a theory is true, we present the evidence and the reader can make up their own mind. Like I said, taking implied information from a game and removing it because it's not confirmed would be a bias against anything not stated in blatant terms. It misses a part of the Zelda universe. You lose me on that fifth sentence, I think you are saying that it's bad when a theory section presents a conclusion, but that's the whole point of these things is to single out a piece of information that may be true. Giving evidence for something without saying what it is would just be a failure to communicate effectively. We're not talking about fanon stories, we're talking about information about the actual canonical universe that fans are piecing together. So no, I don't think we need to purge every trace of fans' attempts to understand Zelda from a website designed to help fans understand Zelda. Is there a particular theory section that you're looking at here that you think is not relevant or something?--FierceDeku 02:57, July 26, 2011 (UTC)
It's bias because you're making them with credibility that the fans have thought up. But it really isn't that much proven facts for some and then there are some that are facts but put into theories. For example, Navi's theories on how it states that Navi is in love with Link, that's not really a "theory" that's pretty much already proven, just outside the game., same with Link looking for Navi in Majora's Mask.


I say it's bias because their not really part of Zelda facts nor in a place where not everything is exactly stated anywhere (those that aren't facts), people can piece things together on their own. it's not really necessary to present a "theories" sections that are already proven facts or loosely connected things. The little pieces of fact that make up theories i do think we should keep. just not the theory itself.Ilaria Mask (talk) 18:48, July 26, 2011 (UTC)

Legend of Zelda movie

Has anyone seen that movie trailer for the Lefend of Zelda movie? When I saw it I nearly exploded, Legend of Zelda is my life, I literally love that game, and I was so stocked to see that they were making a movie. But what I later found out was that it was an april fools joke. I was so bumbed, they did an awsome job, can you belive it was all a project made by a buch of college kids. Wow they have talent there better than any other director that tried to create a video game movie.

I kind of disliked it even more than I do most video game adaptations. Anyways, this isn't really what the talk page is for. Create a forum or something. --AuronKaizer! 00:39, August 25, 2010 (UTC)

Your wikia is in danger

The wikia staff are planning to impose a mandatory skin on all wikia sites that would disrupt the encyclopedic nature in its basic form. More info in the following links.

Dragon Poll

Hi, um... I come here all the time but I never actually said anything until now. I noticed your Dragon Poll and I was curious. Should Barba and Volvagia really be two separate entries? Since it's meant to be the same dragon. (Barba originally named Volvagia and renamed as such in the remakes) Maybe if the poll was favourite dragon "boss" but doesn't say that... just dragon.

Having the same name does not necessarily mean they are exactly the same thing, and using the name used in the final original version (even if it's not entirely correct) helps distinguish between the two. Jedimasterlink (talk) 21:43, April 5, 2011 (UTC)

This is sort of similar to Aquamentus being in multiple games, but being under one name. So I understand your concern. That being said, this case is slightly different as jedi explained and its too late to restart the poll anyway. For all intents and purposes, we count them as different things here, so don't worry about it. Its not all that important of an issue. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 23:52, April 5, 2011 (UTC)

News

So I happened to chance upon this. It seems like a pretty major exhibition and features several Zelda titles, maybe we should add it to the news on the main page. Its not like we have much else happening there at the moment. Oni Dark Link 15:52, May 16, 2011 (UTC)

How about no? This is a year from now, even. --AuronKaizer! 16:37, May 16, 2011 (UTC)

Zeldapedia needs to change there polls.

Ok....There polls has bee going on since April 5. They need to change them FAST!

They get added to the Queue. I don't know exactly when they change, but they do change. You just have to be patient, people on wikis have lives, not many of them do, but some do. Also, it's their. Jäzzi
Since its been two months, I'll try to get to it tomorrow if I find time, assuming nobody else does it before then. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 06:22, June 18, 2011 (UTC)

Wikia Gaming Footer

This wiki is listed in the Wikia Gaming Footer, but the Wikia Gaming Footer is missing from this wiki.
You can add the Wikia Gaming Footer by adding {{w:Wikia Gaming Footer}} to the bottom of the main page. -User452 (talk) 04:40, August 31, 2011 (UTC)

I don't think that Wikia's addition of Zeldapedia to the footer obligates us to add it, nor do I think that the community consensus will be in favour of adding it. We happen to have chosen to be hosted by Wikia, but we do not, as a community, condone Wikia's view that the wikis hosted on it belong to Wikia and that they can add features such as the quiz they fobbed off on us without community consent. As a result, we tend not to be too enthusiastic about advertising for Wikia within our actual pages and such.

Mess up with templates.

I was viewing the cource code for one of the templates, Template:Infobox VG, and I accidentally deleted most of the page. This will mess up all the articles for the games, so a rollback will need to fix it. This isn't vandalism, just me being stupid.

I just wanted to let you guys know.

Hey, world. I have discovered that there is a limited edition of a Nintendo 3DS Legend of Zelda DS. I am not sure if this is good to add to this website or not (and I have the hardest time finding information on it, so I am not even sure if this is real...) and apparently it is being released in Europe and Australia, and probably North America (maybe, this is still unconfirmed.) Anyway, if this useful, or even worthwhile, where would this go, if it even deserves a place in this website anyways?

my dad owns that ds...I think it should have a page. According to my dad, some important guy on the Nintendo team (I think he might be the guy that created Zelda II) has that ds, too. Also, if I'm not mistaken on whether this is the anniversary ds, it is black, has a golden HRF crest on the bottom of the lid, and has gold curly designs around it.--Ghost Zelda Spirit Zelda: Help!

Skyward Sword Game Break (IMPORTANT)

According to Nintendo, there is a game break (or whatever its called) that makes the game impossible to beat.

POSSIBLE/MINOR SPOILERS

When collecting the the parts to the Song of the Hero, go to Lanayru Desert LAST. If the song has already been collected first, DON'T TALK TO Golo the Goron. Nintendo has even posted a Save Game Patch, available on the Wii Shop Channel.

Biography sections

Hi.

Should we implement biography sections for the characters? I mean, seeing how the Hyrule Historia section was released, and thus we have, if not a truly canon timeline, then at the very least the closest thing to a canon timeline that we have, we also have some knowledge of what happened to several of the characters. In particular, Ganondorf/Ganon, who, Four Swords Adventures aside, was the same one in every single game he appeared in, would certainly need a biography section. Weedle McHairybug (talk) 21:45, December 25, 2011 (UTC)

The "Appearances" sections serve that purpose. Also, this talk page is meant for discussing the main page itself, which is stated on the banner at the top of this page. General topics like this are better suited for the forums. Jedimasterlink (talk) 01:53, December 26, 2011 (UTC)

Cleanup

I was exploring Zeldapedia and when I clicked on Community Portal, there was a post that said it had been deleted. At the top of this page, it still says to visit the Community Portal and when I edited my profile, I got a message saying to visit the Community Portal. I was wondering maybe somebody would be interested in editing those (obviously an admin) since the Community Portal was deleted. HairyCockroach (talk) 21:27, January 16, 2012 (UTC)HairyCockroach

Suggestion

Maybe we could have events on the homepage? Like 'Happy Birthday Nintendo' on their anniversary, and such. AWWW YEA! (talk) 22:33, June 29, 2012 (UTC)

Eh, I don't really like this idea. I mean, it's a good idea, don't get me wrong. It just doesn't work with the scope of us. – Jazzi (talk) 14:17, July 14, 2012 (UTC)

Ye I was thinking exactly the same.It's not wrong but i don't really like it

We could at least do stuff like the birthday of LoZ, or the anniversary of whenever a game came out or something like that--Ghost Zelda Spirit Zelda: Help! Malladus stole my body! 22:02, October 7, 2013 (UTC)

I don't know where else to bring this up, so...

I noticed some errors on that little yellow bar up top in Oasis. (Like I have a choice of skin.) First off, and I know for a fact that this was mentioned before, the link to the IRC policy is still there, despite the channel apparently having been dropped (over) three months before. Second, for Ocarina of Time in the Games section, the T in Time is not capitalized. And finally, someone misspelled Tektite. On the bar, it's Tektie. Just thought I'd point this out. And I know it's probably a better idea to ask this on a .js file or some such whatchamacallit, but I have no clue about anything to do with JavaScript or .css. A Wikia Contributor

Anyone here?

um just curious if anyone is here from the inactivity in the temple of courage ... also why no chat? KnightmareS-C075 (talk) 01:44, February 9, 2013 (UTC)

The ToC is severely delayed due to suggestion issues and/or laziness and a perceived lack of initiative/interest. Any chat function we had was disabled looooooooong ago since they never led to anything but stupidity and spam. The closest thing we have now is a Skype channel. --AuronKaizer! 02:10, February 9, 2013 (UTC)
I saw this Wikia and was practicaly DRAWN to the ToC. But WHOOP-DE-DOO! IT IS ON HIATUS!!!!!!!!!!! And what does the new game coming out have to do with anything? Just saying, some people said that there weren't enough characters anymore, but there are A LOT of characters that you haven't done yet, let alone the number of fights you could use with that. Adding to that, I have seen SEVERAL instances where a character is used more than once. At least there is not much time until LBW comes out...Oh, and by the way, if someone will teach me how to do the box things in ToC, than I will be more than happy to set them up each week--Ghost Zelda Spirit Zelda: Help! Malladus stole my body! 21:59, October 7, 2013 (UTC)
Not to be harsh, but you weren't here when we put the thing on hiatus so you don't really know what you're talking about. It's not just about finding characters that are available for use — the suggestions themselves have to actually be good, and we have months of empirical evidence of people running out of good ideas. We're waiting until the release of ALBW because we really do need new material to work with. I get that this thing was a community favorite, but there's a finite amount of quality material we can get from it and at some point we just hit a ceiling.

I'm not sure how Dr. N was blackmailing Zeldapedia, but I think that there should be an article, if anyone cares about my opinion. I'm not saying that there HAS to be, but it is about LoZ, so there should be one.--Ghost Zelda Spirit Zelda: Help! Malladus stole my body! 21:51, October 7, 2013 (UTC)

Very sorry if it seemed like I was blackmailing, I was just stating what I would do if nobody responded. Didn't mean to cause any problems.--Doc Nef (talk) 13:42, November 6, 2013 (UTC)

So should the page be made then? I have not gone through with making it since the statement clearly made some contributors angry, and it would be good to hear from the admins so that the page can be made as soon as possible.--Doc Nef (talk) 10:08, November 30, 2013 (UTC)
No. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 14:56, November 30, 2013 (UTC)

Polls

Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....when will the polls change on the main page? They've been up for OVER A YEAR! just wondering--Ghost Zelda Spirit Zelda: Help! Malladus stole my body! 22:36, October 7, 2013 (UTC)

Again, what i said before. Those polls were created in AUGUST OF 2012!!!!! THEY NEED TO BE CHANGED!!!! --Ghost Zelda Spirit Zelda: Help! Malladus stole my body! 01:47, October 22, 2013 (UTC)

Calm down. You're correct that they need to be changed. To be honest with you, though, this wiki's activity has sharply declined over the past year or so — we still have some people who keep an eye on things, but as far as the maintenance of stuff like the polls go, we haven't really been good about getting things done.

For the record, by the way, these kinds of conversations about the wiki in general are not what this talk page is supposed to be for, although I guess we're kind of lax about that rule. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 02:39, October 22, 2013 (UTC)
