Making each their own section

I know making them each their own section makes the Table of Contest massive but it looks really good beyond that. If someone has a better idea please do it. These are quotes so do not change the text, and if you add to the list please use the same format I do. Thank you. Cloakblade 06:39, 20 July 2007 (PDT)

Okay, so I looked for a way to fix it and I found on the Help:Editing page that you should be able to make a Header 4 type to the location describitions. This is soppose to NOT put the item in the Table of Contest. This doesn't seem to be working could someone more familiar make it so that it does not appear in the Table of Contest but be taht font type. Thank you once again.

the hidden gossip stone's link to find out how to get to it doesn't work.--Aklyon 19:29, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Thank you to who ever added the Majora's Mask Gossip Stones. I was planning to but I just never got around to it. Cloakblade 02:22, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

Creator

I've removed the following text:
"They were created by the King of Hyrule (mentioned in The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker)"

The actual quote is:

Quote1.png That stone is an enhanced version of the Gossip Stones long spoken of in the legends of the Hyrulean Royal Family. I am the one who made it. Quote2.png
— Daphnes Nohansen Hyrule

This indicates that the King actually made the Pirate's Charm from a piece of Gossip Stone. —Adam (talk) 14:15, 27 February 2008 (EST)

piercing?

I don't think that's how they speak to link, they probably speak to him like any other character would: through vocalization. I'm pretty sure that it "pierces the mind" as a way of collection information from anyone that comes across it. Wouldn't you think? --Stalkid (P T) 04:38, 15 August 2010 (EDT)

With what vocal cords? I realize the King in Wind Waker can talk (both normal and telepathically with a chuck of Gossip Stone he repurposed) and he is a boat(kind of anyway). Unless other Gossip stones or their replacements in other games (that don't have the graphical limitations of the N64) "talk" without telepathy, there doesn't seem to be much merit to your proposition. The Mask of Truth is probably an interface for anyone who isn't already telepathic like the Royal Family, the Sages or Sahasrahla. PureLocke(User/Talk) 05:51, 15 August 2010 (EDT)
By that logic, the groaning of Gorons or the purring of Zoras would be indecipherable to Link as well. You seem to be ignoring the fact that just about any entity has dialog despite a lack of speech organs. Take the Great Deku Tree, Deku Shrubs, Signposts, Gravestones and much more, for example. The Mask of Truth is simply something to provoke a response from the Gossip Stones, not to actually read them telepathically. After all, it literally says "Responding to your mask" in the in-game dialog; and telepathy doesn't seem to require a vehicle in any other situations of the Zelda universe (Tatl, for example, speaks to Link as well as other characters such as Kafei).--Stalkid (P T C) 02:20, 25 August 2010 (EDT)
Alright, after finding a video apparently what they say to Link is (Explanation) "Responding to your mask, this strange stone statue talks to you." Gossip Stone: "I overheard this.... +secret+" So it looks like you're right Eponasowner/Stalkid, Gossip Stones are magically able to talk. It may be that Red Lions just imbued the chunk of Gossip Stone with a bit of Royal Telepathy. An aside: Gorons, Business (Deku) Shrubs, Stalkids, and Zora are presumably able to speak as they have formed treaties/trade with Hylians and all have mouths. Sign posts and Gravestones are read. Fairies, I assume, are European fairies with little glowing humanoid bodies attached to their wings, so they can speak. Telepathy pops up whenever Sages or Royal family members need to speak with Link. One other side thought, plants like the GDT do breathe and it has a mouth.

Shop Category?

I did a minor edit on the Carpet Merchant in Ocarina of Time and clicked further on to the Shops Category, but did not find the Moonlight Merchant there. I think it should've been there, but it isn't. I do not have the adequate editing skills to solve the issue(as I see it, it is a problem). If anyone has the a solution for the problem, I would be glad to have the problem solved. By the way, should the Moonlight Merchant be in the Shops Category? Let me know. :) --NorskTW

Maybe it should be its own article? Is there enough to write about it? I wouldn't know, I'm not that far in the game. — Hylian King [*] 14:53, 23 January 2012 (EST)
Yes, that's a great idea. NorskTW 11.16, 31 January 2012
Until then, I'll just categorize the redirection. If anyone's going to do that, they'll have to delete the rest of the page's content, so why not? NorskTW 15:16, 12 February 2012 (EST)

future telling

When playing through the game i came across a gossip stone that talks about Malon setting the record for the obstacle course, "They say that Malon set the original record in the obstacle course of Lon Lon Ranch." But that doesn't make much sense unless of course gossip stones can predict the future since the obstacle course is available when you're an adult. Then again I guess she could have set it as a child but the only baby horse back then was Epona, but that wouldn't make much sense considering Epona's not tame yet. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kiotaa (talk) 17:02, 20 August 2012

We can't rule out the possibility that Malon may be able to ride fully-grown horses even as a child...
Also, please remember to sign your posts with four tildes (~~~~). This automatically creates a timestamp with your username attached to it. This is important because it lets us know who made the post and when. :) — Hylian King [*] 21:06, 20 August 2012 (EDT)
