Removing Red Links

Hi there!

I noticed several of your edits recently have been solely to remove red links. Red links, while somewhat unsightly, are actually extremely useful! It puts articles that still need to be created on the "Wanted Pages" list. So if the red link points to a legitimate article that simply hasn't been written yet, please leave the red link in the article so that users recognize that it needs to be created (and so that, when the article is created, other articles will already be pointing to it!). If you have any other questions, please feel free to drop a line on my talk page, or the talk page of another experienced user. Thank you! Embyr 75  --Talk-- 19:52, 21 December 2011 (EST)

Removing Conversations

Hey there. I noticed you tried to remove this discussion again. Please refrain from doing so; keeping all our discussions accessible and on record is important for future reference. For example, if someone else happens to wonder why Demise is listed as a major character (which is a perfectly reasonable question, by the way), they can easily find the answer to their question here because it has already been answered. — Hylian King [*] 18:56, 4 September 2012 (EDT)

Oops. Sorry... I just removed it because I figured the question was already answered at Hyrule Castle. It's fine though--Person777 18:51, 16 September 2012 (EDT)

Userbox Container

Hey, I added a container to your page for your userboxes, since you asked for someone to do that. Is that acceptable for you? - TonyT S C 09:15, 29 March 2013 (UTC

Yes! Thank you! That's what I was trying to get! :) --Person777 23:23, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Userbox Request

Hello! I noticed your userbox request. I'm not sure what you want on it, but you'd use the userbox template:

{{Userbox
|image     = 
|text      = 
|font      = 
|border    = 
|infobg    = 
|imagebg   = 
}}

Now, as for filling it out, the first line is where you place an image. For example, if I wanted this file, I'd put [[File:LADX DethI Sprite.png|50px]] in that section. The 50px is for size, and a good range is from 40px to 60px and larger for screenshots.

The "text" section is for text. I'll use "This user is so awesome he beat DeathI without the boomerang!" as the sample text.

Font is actually for text color. You could use several words or a hex triplet. You can use either Wikipedia's HTML color chart or this site to find the color you want. I'll use #DC143C as an example font color.

Border is for, well, the border! It should start with "solid 1px" or a larger thickness if you want. The coloring system is carried over from the font section and we'll use #98FB98.

Infobg is for the color of the infobox, which is everything except the space surrounding the image, which is refereed to as the "imagebg". Again, the color system is the same. I'll use #2E2E2E.

Imagebg is pretty much the same as Infobg, except for the picture area. I'll skip it for now.

Here is the resulting userbox:

LADX DethI Sprite.png This user is so awesome they beat DethI without the boomerang!


And if you need the coding, here:

{{Userbox
|image     = [[File:LADX DethI Sprite.png|50px]]
|text      = This user is so awesome they beat DethI without the boomerang!
|font      = #DC143C
|border    = Solid 1px #98FB98
|infobg    = #2E2E2E
|imagebg   = 
}}

Thanks! :) --Person777 23:26, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

The use of "You"

Hey, just wanted to point out that we don't use "you" or "the player" here when writing on the wiki. We write from an in-universe perspective, so when referring to player actions, we refer to them as Link's actions instead. Thanks. - Midoro (T C) 02:29, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

Yeah I already knew that. I probably just wasn't paying attention. Has it already been fixed? If not, where was it? I can fix it if necessary. --Planetbox (talk) 16:39, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

That's been fixed now. But it's okay, errors happen. =) - Midoro (T C) 16:48, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
