Sources

Hey there. I wanted to thank you for your work on the TFH images, though I noticed they still have their old sources. For the sake of accuracy, could you update their sources? TriforceTony (talk) 04:42, 10 December 2017 (UTC)

No problem! I didn't see how to change their sources before, but I just figured it out. HTWretched (talk) 17:53, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
Just to add to the sourcing thing: instead of just adding your username, use the original source template as it automatically adds all the necessary information. The code would look like this: {{Original Source|Htwretched}}. - Chuck * (Talk) 18:58, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
Thanks Chuck, that makes more sense! Htwretched (talk) 01:19, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

Promotional Images

Hey again, I'm sorry for undoing your work like this but because of some managerial errors, a lot of the images you uploaded over were meant to be protected as they're promotional material that we have to document in the state that they were released in. I don't want you to lose your work, but I do have to revert the images back to their original form, then properly categorize and protect them. If you want, you can upload them at another destination so your higher quality images are preserved.
Again, I'm tremendously sorry for this situation, but documenting these screenshots specifically from official sources is just something we do. TriforceTony (talk) 00:12, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

Oh, that's okay. If you could point me to one of the images you've reverted, I can see what to watch out for in the future. Htwretched (talk) 01:11, 11 December 2017 (UTC)
One of these would be like File:TFH Link Sword Suit.png, and you should be able to tell if it has a link to any of Nintendo or Zelda's social media accounts or websites. TriforceTony (talk) 02:15, 11 December 2017 (UTC)
I see, thanks for bringing this to my attention. Sorry for wasting your time with my overzealous edits! I didn't notice this rule in the help guide. Htwretched (talk) 02:39, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

Old Username

Hi, I noticed you mentioned that you lost access to your previous username, "HelpTheWretched", after Zelda Wiki's move to Gamepedia. I just wanted to let you know it may be possible to reclaim the edits your old account made and reclaim your old name. You can make a support ticket with Gamepedia here and request that they merge your current account with the account had before move, making sure to specify that you are talking about Zelda Wiki, what your current Gamepedia username is and what your old Zelda Wiki username was. Note that it could take some time for them to respond to the ticket, especially considering the time of year. This will mean that, once merged, any edits under "HelpTheWretched" will credit your Gamepedia account.

If you would prefer your username to be "HelpTheWretched" or even something other than "Htwretched", wait until your accounts have been merged and send another ticket to gamepedia support asking them to change your account name. Make sure to specify what your current Gamepedia username is and what you would like it to be. However, there is no guarantee that they will be able to change it to the username you want. User:Link Lab/sig 21:33, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the message! Getting my edits merged isn't a big deal, but I use that name on other Zelda-related sites so it'd be good to get it back. Also, as you can see from the ↑ previous topic ↑, I've learned my lesson about all those Source reverts you had to do. ;) Htwretched (talk) 04:58, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

Image sources

Hey there! Thanks for your recent upload. However, you haven't changed the old source. I've seen that you've already been warned on this. So I'm assuming you know how to use {{Original Source|Htwretched}}. Don't worry, I'm not scolding you. Only re-iterating the fact that the source has to be updated. In case it is not updated, we will see ourselves in the obligation to remove it, thing we really don't want to. Thank you in advance! :) MannedTooth (talk) 03:48, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

Sorry about that. Some work had come up suddenly, and after that I just forgot! Pretty sure I've updated the sources on any other image overwrites, but in case it happens again, I understand why you'd have to remove it. Htwretched (talk) 06:45, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
As I said, I'm not scolding you, so there's no need to be sorry, really. We are still grateful to you for uploading it. Just be careful in the future! :) MannedTooth (talk) 07:27, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
I got the gist of your message, but I'm still sorry. ;) Trying to contribute properly without stepping on anyone's toes, leads to occasionally forgetting some of the rules. Htwretched (talk) 00:15, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

Remove background?

Hey there! Thank you for uploading this animation, are you able to remove its background? MannedTooth (talk) 07:59, 7 January 2018 (UTC)

Consider it done! The edges are slightly jagged, but that's a limitation of GIF files. Htwretched (talk) 19:02, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
Thank you! :) MannedTooth (talk) 01:50, 8 January 2018 (UTC)
