Pages listed for deletion

The Legend of Zelda III: The Triforce Saga

Why am I tagging this for deletion? Well, first, the "site" that it comes from doesn't look that reliable (and isn't listed on our fan site page, but of course, not many are probably). The image on the article on The Hylia looks like it's a photoshop image and an image from ALttP (I think that's where the image comes from) pasted on to a cartridge. Not to mention on the top of the article is says Apparently people on the internet believe everything they see. It’s this spreading epidemic that has been plaguing online society for nearly a decade now. An auction for a supposed prototype of “Zelda III” for the NES was listed on eBay (original link here, but was taken down suspiciously right after the end of the listing), and it was simply a grey NES cart with a white sheet of printing paper cut out into a square shape with courier font printed on it. Everybody dismissed this auction as a hoax. And really, in the article on Zeldapedia, it says: A supposed beta cartridge for the game was circulated on the auction site eBay in October of 2005. And then It is currently believed that this cartridge was a hoax.. Were this true, it'd actually be known. And, the image on The Hylia does not have a Nintendo Seal of Approval. That just sells the deletion. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jäzzi (talkcontribs)

  1. Just because we have one page about a hoax doesn't mean every hoax needs one. This is just from some person putting something on eBay. If I wanted to, I could put up the beta SNES cartridge of the direct sequel for ALttP and we would have to make a page for it if we don't delete this one. --Birdman5589 (talk) 22:29, July 22, 2012 (UTC)

1. We have pages for the Overture of Sages and Jadusable, so by this logic we should be deleting those articles too. Why only delete one if the wiki isn't okay with hoax articles,Which it clearly is. (Ok with hoax articles here, that is). Basically there is no real reason for deleting it since there is nothing wrong with the page and this wiki is ok with hoax articles... I don't know how to word it, exactly. Besides, people might be interested in it. (I know this isn't written properly, can someone fix this for me? I dont know how to do it.)

I'm a bit unsure here, seeing as how at least one other hoax has a page. --AuronKaizer! 20:53, July 22, 2012 (UTC)

Third option. Like above people seem to be in favor of having a merchandise page perhaps we should have a page for the major hoaxes. I see no reason why the overture of the sages should have a page when Zelda III doesn't, it's not that big a hoax since, according to our page, it was revealed to be a hoax not long after being shown in the first place. Zelda III also is quite a major hoax topic I've heard of it before. But personally I don't think either really deserve a page. A page for all the major hoaxes like the obtainable Triforce or the convincing interesting Zelda Wii rumors would suffice. Oni Dark Link 21:51, July 22, 2012 (UTC)

A general page for hoaxes seems like a good idea. -Isdrakthül 17:19, July 23, 2012 (UTC)
A page for only for major hoaxes sounds good. Green Rupee 17:30, July 23, 2012 (UTC)
Hoax page sounds good. Much like a list of fan sites, but like, explaining the hoaxes and whatnot. – Jazzi (talk) 17:35, July 23, 2012 (UTC)


Buddhism

Aright, let's see if we can finally decide something on the Articles for deletion page for the first time in like ten years. The obvious criteria in support of this article is that we already have a page for Christianity. However, that page covers something that was considered an universe faith at one point early in the series that since has been written out (if not retconned entirely). While the examples in this article mainly only covers references. It needs quite a bit of work but I am leaning slightly more towards keeping it right now but I'll let some arguments be put forward before I throw down an official opinion.

  1. There is currently nothing relevant, as such the page is empty and useless, moreover the article starts with incorrect or approximative info. The declaration "is given a Medieval setting" is not correct. The main religion/spirituality in Japan is Shinto(ism) and there are obviously much more references from Shinto than Buddhism in Zelda games. If the contributor who created the page, does not correct and develop the page, the page will become approximative and pointless. For just a few references, they can anyway just been noticed in the respective pages, meaning in Koloktos and Ancient Cistern, not need to have a dedicated article.

  2. It needs more than just very minor imagery and references. It should go. Green Rupee 22:17, March 25, 2018 (UTC)

  1. We need it for relevant information.--Metalreflectslime (talk) 08:07, March 25, 2017 (UTC)

An alternative way, I suggest, would be to merge any "in real life" religion/spirituality references in an unique religion/spirituality page that currently serves for Christianity.

Because Oni Dark Link is right, it looks weird and somewhat unfair to have a page for Christianity, while almost all kind of religions and spiritualities have references (sometimes much more in time) in Zelda games: Shinto, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Ancient Greek/Roman/Celtic/Scandinavian/Egyptian/Summerian/etc. Paganism/Polytheism/Mythologies, any Animism from anywhere, etc. WiseAdventurer (talk) 13:15, March 25, 2017 (UTC)

Hmm. I'm actually leaning slightly towards canning it not. Because the content there really isn't relevant. We can mention it on the pages themselves, the same isn't really true of the way Christianity was handled in the older games. It outright had churches and artwork of Link kneeling in front of a crucifix. A page listing references might be useful but I don't think it should overwrite the current Christianity article.

In any case, for just a few references, they can indeed just been noticed in the respective pages, meaning in Koloktos and Ancient Cistern, not need to have a dedicated page. WiseAdventurer (talk) 14:41, March 25, 2017 (UTC)

Legends of Zelda

Aside from the page itself being a mess, I doubt the usefulness of the information on the page. Even if the information is worth keeping, it would probably be better to keep it on a "Player's Guide" page. Actually, if we keep it, all of Baggins created "Player's Guide" pages could be merged and condensed into one thing. Or, y'know, we just delete them. Green Rupee 19:17, March 23, 2018 (UTC)

  1. I agree, and I would even write that we should take a deeper look at most of the pages he has created. A lot of things added are probably not official or are not simply checkable (by everyone). WiseAdventurer (talk) 14:29, March 24, 2018 (UTC)
  2. It almost seems like it was taken word for word from whatever guide it came from. I don't like its tone; it's not even trying to be encyclopedic. And yeah, a Player's Guide page would be the best route if its information is deemed usable enough to warrant a page at all. —Ceiling Master 11:53, March 26, 2018 (UTC)
