Welcome to my talk page. I am extremely inactive most of the time, but feel free to leave a message anyway and if it's important it'll get passed along through The Grape Vine. Please start your messages with a == (level 2) header. Thanks!
About Hyrule Historia, we half-heartedly decided to acknowledge an ambiguous degree of canon-status just a few months back. I and a couple of others are willing to consider it on the same level as developer quotes (which is still below the games), though I think most people still don't have much of an opinion right now.
Hey, welcome back, Minish. Glad to see a name I recognize in the RC. I was looking at your edit to the HW canonicity forum, and I saw a little thing at the bottom that said "Like this edit? Tell Minish Link they did nice work!" and the "nice work" part was a button, so I clicked it. And... I'm kind of curious as to what it did. Were you notified or anything?
Yep, I got a notification but I clicked out of it really fast. It's part of Wikia's whole "let's be Facebook" thing -- I think the thumbs-up emote you get is just like the FB "like" symbol, so that's basically what they seem to be going for!
