Merge

Well, since I flagged it, I'll start the discussion. Despite the differing names, a lantern is a lamp is a flame lantern is a candle too, but I doubt people would want to go that far with merging pages. User:Axiomist/sig 18:07, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

I'm not sure that merging the candle with the lanterns would be a good idea, but yes, the Flame Lantern should be merged with the Lantern page. The lantern page is [sadly] poorly written, taking descriptions from the manuals and with you's all over the place. D: But yeah...I have no problem with this page being part of the lantern article.

Sounds good to me. It shouldn't be too hard to merge it and clean up the lantern article. If no one objects (and if no one gets to it before I do), I can do it in a little while. --Ionizer 00:21, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
Of course no one's gonna object! :) Anyone who is willing to clean up and improve an article doesn't deserve any objections from anyone, so go right ahead. Dany36 00:42, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
Done. --Ionizer 02:00, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
Oh man...you really did an awesome job, Ionizer!! Next time you see a page that needs some serious work like this, don't hesitate to work on it... We won't mind, of course, and in fact we hope you stick around and help us do revamps of articles that have poor grammar/etc. Keep up the good work! :) Dany36 02:13, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

I'm seconding that comment. User:Axiomist/sig 02:31, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

Wow, thanks. I'll be sure to fix up whatever I come across that needs fixing. I spend a lot of time hitting the Random Page button, and I eventually felt compelled to sign up so I could fix the errors that were bugging me. The "You/Link" thing really irks me too (I spent a bit of time actually searching for "you' in articles to fix, but I kept coming across in game quotes as references). I did find a few and changed them, though. So yeah, thanks for the compliments, and I'll get back to patrolling around for errors now. --Ionizer 02:36, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

Okay, I merged Flame Lantern over here, added the Item Template and cleaned up what I could. I haven't played FSA or TMC, so I can't improve those sections other than fixing up grammar and stuff. If someone else could finish cleaning up the article, it'd be greatly appreciated. --Ionizer 02:00, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

Enemy lanterns

Poes carry around lanterns, usually ones that appear to contain their souls, in every incarnation of them in the series. Moblins in the Wind Waker used lanterns to patrol the area and would fling them at you once they spotted you, setting fire to the environment. Should lanterns like these be added to the article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dekler (talk) 06:27, 30 June 2012

I think it's a good idea, so I went ahead and added it. Feel free to add to it. - TonyT S C 18:00, 30 June 2012 (EDT)

Most recent name

Since A Link Between Worlds calls it a Lamp, do we have to rename the page?

Its most recent appearance would actually be TPHD, hence why its Lantern appears in the infobox. - Chuck * (Talk) 15:45, 4 October 2016 (UTC)
