Well, it had to happen sometime...

Hey, uh, Mandi? This is Bpenguin17, who submitted the Wiki Exclusive. You wrote on my talk page asking me to improve the article, and I replied and asked for specifics. Possibly for the first time ever... a response escaped your notice! I've been waiting to rewrite the article until you give me more information, so could you swing by and give me a quick answer? Thanks! Bpenguin17 22:37, 2 October 2010 (EDT)

I can't really believe I completely missed this message. Anyhow, the specifics? I think the main complaint was more so the structure, you didn't use any paragraph structure so it was basically just one big block of text which turned off a lot of people. Another thing was probably the informality of it. It seemed less professional and more like a casual conversation between someone. Some things you could do to improve it would be...

1) Work on your word choice, avoid using common cliches. Using cliches tend to make the article/story/whatever seem more common and less original.

2) Work on grammar and punctuation. If something has poor grammar and bad punctuation, it's a major turn off for people.

3) Try to craft your sentences so that it pulls the reader in more, so start off with an interesting beginning sentence. User:Mandi/sig 19:42, November 17, 2010 (UTC)

Um Mandi bathroom guy actully is in LoZ he is in a bathroom stall he gives you a heart bit if you give him toliet paper.

Thanks

Thanks for that tip, Mandi. Also, is there any reason why people keep deleting my posts?

Trueblade74 17:09, 8 January 2011 (EST)

Well, seeing as this is a wiki about the Zelda series we like to keep our information as clear and unbiased as possible ;) If you need any help with editting, you might want to take a look at our Help Guide. Your edits had a lot of theories and speculation in them, that's why they were reverted.User:Mandi/sig 23:48, January 8, 2011 (UTC)

Reverted? They were DELETED!!!

Trueblade74 19:28, 8 January 2011 (EST)

No, they were reverted. Technically since this is a wiki, nothing is deleted in the sense. Everything stays in the system and even deleted content can be accessed again and restored.User:Mandi/sig 00:34, January 9, 2011 (UTC)
Your edits are still in the system. Click the "history" button at the top of the article and select the time of your edit. That'll display that page exactly as it was at that time. For example, here are your edits to the Malladus page and Great Fairy page.
Your posts have some interesting facts in them, but you shouldn't make it sound like you're accusing someone of theft. Just point it out in the trivia. For example, your first post is still there in the Malladus page, but we slightly modified it to make it more neutral. Trust me, the guys at Intelligent Systems are big boys. I'm sure they know what the right thing to do is in these situations. — Abdul [T] [C] [S]  07:25, 9 January 2011 (EST)

Unconfirmed Easter Egg

Hey Mandi, I came across some very likely easter eggs in Majora's Mask. I wasn't sure if I should add them in to the Trivia section on each separate mask's page or not seeming how it has not been confirmed by Nintendo themselves, but generally it is agreed on.

I checked the pages earlier and noticed they weren't there, and just to be safe I didn't want to add them in without knowing if I could as I'm fairly new to the Wiki.

Thanks :D. Skermefaten 20:37, 15 January 2011 (EST)

Yeah, it seems like it could be an Easter Egg. I'll ask the rest of the staff and see what they think.User:Mandi/sig 02:27, January 16, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I think this is great. The masks only bear a slight resemblance to the Starfox characters up until the masks that allegedly represent Slippy and Pigma. Those two are practically uncanny. So yes, I'm all for this going on the page. Good find! — ciprianotalk 21:48, 15 January 2011 (EST)
Sounds good, I'll get right on it. Thanks again, I'm still learning the basics around here :). EDIT: I added the info to the respective pages, and was wondering if I should put an image somewhere that compares all the masks with the characters. I'm not sure how or where to put it anyway :D. Skermefaten 01:01, 16 January 2011 (EST)

If you took a screen shot or something and have the image, just upload and put it on the page next to the information. If it's messed up, someone will look at it and fix it. User:Mandi/sig 06:50, January 16, 2011 (UTC)

Ah, okay. I captured it from the video I saw this from anyway. I'll just cite the video since there's no official source. Skermefaten 12:19, 16 January 2011 (EST)

Deactivate my account

Can you deactivate my account then! That CIPRIANO has been ignoring my request for 2 days and i'm sick of it!--Hero of The Wind of Time 18:16, 11 February 2011 (EST)

Okay, I hate to disappoint you, but the answer to this is that there is no way to deactivate your account. If you no longer want your account, then my suggestion is that you just simply stop using it! :)User:Mandi/sig 00:48, February 12, 2011 (UTC)
There's also no point in deactivating your account. You can easily make a new one whenever you want. However, if you're that desperate to stop using your account, you can always go to My preferences > Change password. Type a bunch of random letters and numbers somewhere (make sure you don't/can't remember it), copy it, and paste it in the "New password" fields. That should make it difficult for you to regain access to your account. — Abdullah [T] [C] [S]  23:15, 11 February 2011 (EST)
Interesting theory. The easiest route of action is to simply stop using your account, though. ZENOX T C 23:25, 11 February 2011 (EST)

NOBODY TOLD ME ABOUT THIS!! @_@

Upon checking My Preferences, I found an option to change the skin I watch the wiki with, and I have to say that Vector looks AMAZING!! Was this skin available since the beginning? Wow, it makes the wiki look even more beautiful =). --User:K2L/sig 00:31, 24 February 2011 (EST)

No, it's a recent work in progress. It's still being ironed-out. There's still some things that have to be done with it before it's ready.User:Matt/sig 07:40, February 24, 2011 (UTC)
Oh, I see. You're doing a great job, and I really hope it succeeds =) --User:K2L/sig 03:15, 24 February 2011 (EST)
Yep, it's not finished yet! Which is why it hasn't been publicly announced, yet. You're free to use it though if you want to, just be warned that there will likely be some kinks and maybe even glitches in it. But, yeah I'm using it because I dig the more refreshing colors. :PUser:Mandi/sig 18:19, February 24, 2011 (UTC)

You deleted my contribution

Hey Mandi, this is Zelda4life and you deleted the trivia I put in the School of Joy page. Was it because I didn't show proof or did you just not like it?—Preceding unsigned comment added by Zelda4ever (talk) March 5, 2011

Hey, there! Yeah, I had to look through the history to see which revision that you were referring to, and yeah. I remember that one, I just didn't think it was important because I thought that you were making a comparison/reference to scientists in the 14th and 15th century believing that the the earth was flat, which I didn't really think had any relevance to the Zelda universe considering Hyrule is its own separate world and would thus have different laws, which is why I reverted it. On second thought, though maybe I was just misreading it and it could possibly make an interesting trivia, so I reverted my revision! Also, to sign your talk page posts, just use ~~~~ Thanks!!
User:Mandi/sig 03:55, March 6, 2011 (UTC)
Cool. I was playing it again while I was sick so I was paying attention to every small detail that I could and saw that and thaught the best place to share that would be Zelda Wiki. Also, there might be a globe in Sturgeon's house but I'm not sure. Could you or anyone who sees this check on it for me? Zelda4life 18:44, 7 March 2011 (EST)
Nope, just a bunch of books and pots. It's certainly an interesting bit of trivia, though, if I must say myself... — Hylian King [*] 18:59, 7 March 2011 (EST)

What happend?

You deleted your entire user page? How come? : / SMASHBROTHER101 16:13, 15 March 2011 (EDT)

Ha! It was old and outdated so I was thinking redoing it, hence the blanking, I'll get around to it eventually! User:Mandi/sig 20:51, March 15, 2011 (UTC)
ahh... I see... I should probably do that soon too SMASHBROTHER101 18:12, 20 March 2011 (EDT)
You certainly can't unless your the admin. That one has to promote you first before that.--Brandondorf9999 17:30, 27 August 2011 (EDT)

Khalid

Sorry, didn't know. I just thought it would be nice for a blog for all Zelda fans to connect. But don't worry, it has no viruses or spams. Once again, sorry for the inconvenience.

My email

Have you checked my email? I have more to add on the information that the little adventurer had (Creator of Eyes) He has edited my message I left on Abduls page... something he was warned against. Can you please do something about this troublesome user? Thank you. Steahl 19:56, 8 November 2011 (EST)

as far as i can tell he's being taken care of, thanks for the notice!User:Mandi/sig 14:15, 9 November 2011 (EST)
You're very welcome ;) Steahl 15:06, 9 November 2011 (EST)

hi, i am from zelda wiki and i would like to ask you something: can i use the picture that you can find under the rubric "Gorons" and then "Gorko" on zeldawiki.org for private purposes? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Goron Gorko (talk) 11:21, November 28, 2011

The question has been answered here. — Abdullah [T] [C] [S]  09:10, 28 November 2011 (EST)

You have a new message

On your phone. Which you've already read. Which makes this pointless. But I did it because I could. *smirk*

...I almost forgot to sign. Hah. Too long...User:Justin/sig 20:51, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
