I don't really like this category. The nature of the various "lands" in the Zelda series is highly ambiguous, with regards to their status as kingdoms/countries/provinces/continents etc. I think this name makes too many assumptions, and the more general category Places serves the purpose much better. Maybe a nav template "lands in (Loz)" to be used on these pages would be better? Any thoughts? --Adam (talk) 13:11, 22 January 2008 (EST)

Better moved to something like "worlds," I think.--Jase 13:46, 22 January 2008 (EST)
"Lands" makes more sense to me. "Worlds" conveys more of a multi-planet sort of feel, at least to me it does. --Ando 13:54, 22 January 2008 (EST)

Soooooooo.....

Almost two years have passes since, so .... rename to Lands, or leave as it is now? --K2L (Interrogatory) 13:50, 5 January 2011 (EST)

"Lands" makes more sense to me. "Countries" conveys a meaning that we just can't support, and "worlds" sounds like we're talking about Mario. Before we make any changes, though, let's have an admin come in and give their opinion. — Abdullah [T] [C] [S]  17:38, 6 January 2011 (EST)
Wow, this category is THAT forgotten :*( .... I guess nobody then will mind if I rename it to Lands. At least the term is less ambiguous than Countries, and less esoteric than Worlds. --K2L (Interrogatory) 15:00, 2 February 2011 (EST)
I had forgotten that only admins can rename categories, and no one remains active as of now, so it seems that we'll indeed have to leave this category into oblivion anyways....--K2L (Interrogatory) 15:06, 2 February 2011 (EST)
Lands makes little since when talking about the World of the Ocean King or The Wind Waker's collection of islands. Worlds makes zero sense for TLoZ games. Since nothing is totally defined by the games, any renaming is going to have to be as precise as possible. I recommend using something like Campaign Regions or Greater Regions with "greater" used as it normally is in local geography; to define the larger encompassing area.
