Talk:Ordon Shield

From Zelda Wiki, the Zelda encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

If the Ordon Shield deserves its own article, does that not logically mean the Ordon Sword would likewise merit its own as well? Just asking because I'm unsure of the logic. Dinosaur bob 18:45, 7 October 2007 (EDT)

This is the reason behind it: Category talk:Items#Information everywhere. --Adam 02:24, 8 October 2007 (EDT)

This is ridiculous

The Giant's Knife doesn't have its own article despite working differently from the Biggoron Sword (as it can break), yet the Ordon Shield, which is just a reskinned Wooden Shield (it behaves exactly the same way, and even Nintendo seems to agree in that they're pretty much the same item, as they didn't bother making it buyable in case the player lost it since it's already possible to buy a Wooden Shield), does. What the ****? - Dere 04:12, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

Agreed. Reskinned items should be covered with the main version of the item, as a variant. If anything would need to be split off, its the wooden shield between games so that you can add more info like shop prices, mechanics, etc.KrytenKoro 18:03, 11 May 2013 (UTC)
Still supporting a merge.KrytenKoro (talk) 01:24, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
If no one responds this week, will process a merge.KrytenKoro (talk) 23:00, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
You're not even an admin, or a mod for that matter, what gives you the right to dictate what should be merged with another page or not? Get down off your high horse and stop acting like you have the right to decide if a page should/should-not be merged with another. Because you know full well that making such a drastic change without consulting an admin will just have your change be undone right?

also I am opposed to the merge. It may be just another wood shield in terms of functionality, but there is only one way to get the Ordon Shield, and if lost it can never be gotten back. That makes it a unique item in its own right, as it can never be replaced once lost, ergo it qualifies to have its own page.

Calm down Ixbran, there's no need to be rude with other users, especially for a discussion than ended a year ago. Even if someone's not an admin, they still have the right to propose a merge. If it's a big change, of course it's recommended to propose it first in the page's discussion, but still, there's no need to be rude about it, after all, this is an "encyclopedia that anyone can edit." Anyway, both items have now their own page, so there's no need to continue this discussion anymore. - Chuck * (Talk) 17:01, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
Just noting for posterity that, as we did end up splitting Giant's Knife, and the manner in which we organize pages has changed in the last two and a half years, I no longer support a merge for this page.KrytenKoro (talk) 12:53, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
