Theories

There are still some Zeldawiki pages with theories, do you want to get rid of them? Delsait (talk) 20:32, 15 December 2016 (UTC)

Theories should be removed from pages after all factual (non-speculatory, useful) information has been extracted and relocated from them. - TonyT S C 20:40, 15 December 2016 (UTC)
The Poe Collector page has some. Maybe we can just mention the guard. Delsait (talk) 20:48, 15 December 2016 (UTC)

Soldier enemies in FSA

Them being guards corrupted in some manner comes from Malon, and a few other characters in the game. Delsait (talk) 08:57, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

I put the fact template there not because I didn't believe it, but because it needs to be sourced. - TonyT S C 09:45, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

Idea for making a page

Hey boss,

I was thinking and maybe a counterpart to Technology in The Legend of Zelda Universe would be helpful. The page would list the medieval elements of the series wich are equally as important as the technological elements. I've got a lot of free time and I'd be more than happy to get it started. I've grown a lot as an editor in general since I last used this wiki (I've made small edits here and there, but I haven't done big edits in 2 years maybe?), so to be more reputable for the job you can check out my recent edits here, sort of as a resume. I'd be happy to get started on that page if you give me a green light, I think it would be helpful.

Thanks!Editorguy117 (talk) 10:04, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

Sounds like it could really be informative, so go for it. - TonyT S C 10:08, 20 December 2016 (UTC)
Thanks!Editorguy117 (talk) 18:35, 20 December 2016 (UTC)
Just finished it, check it out here Medieval elements in The Legend of Zelda Universe. Thanks!Editorguy117 (talk) 18:56, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

Manga translations

Do we cover Translated names for manga only characters, and terms? Delsait (talk) 01:03, 23 December 2016 (UTC)

We would do that through the other pages, no need to make a new page; just make a sub section on the relevant pages that exist. However, I must warn you that the translation pages are being retroactively handled exclusively by staff, so all information will be purged and added by personal verification to ensure minimal error and misinformation. This includes the work you're intending to put in. - TonyT S C 02:33, 23 December 2016 (UTC)


On Blind

You removed this part from page 39 of the 1992 Nintendo power. "Blind, and his thieves worked at night, leading a massive crime wave across Hyrule. "Blind the Thief leads his ruthless robbers on a crime spree, hitting houses clear across the country. His hideout is here in the village, but there are rumors that he has fled to parts unknown, leaving much of his treasure behind." This was word for word from page 39 of the official SNES guide for Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past by Nintendo power. Delsait (talk) 18:53, 24 December 2016 (UTC)

Oshus Sword vs Oshus sword

Regarding this edit, the "Oshus's sword" comes from the actual in-game text shown in the gallery, I thought this spelling was important to note. MannedTooth (talk) 18:05, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

Text that appears in coloring (usually red) is treated as a titular name on ZW, though for stylistic consistency, terms such as this are always treated as proper nouns. We don't use official terms without capitalizing them, which is why I removed the redundant name.
Further, please understand that names from guides (such as your addition of "mallet" here) are not recognized unless they fit the coloring or capitalization standard. We don't take simple words as terms unless these fit either condition. - TonyT S C 03:45, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

Zelda.com sorry

Oh well, my apologies for the Zelda.com edit, I clicked on it as text, so I got on the article of the website on the wiki rather than the Zelda site itself, I thought it was like a forum thing like "we use that, so it's kinda official", my apologies once again! :) MannedTooth (talk) 06:48, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

Molten Rocks to Magma Rocks?

So if Molten Rocks is the official name, does that mean u want a separate page for it? Which I honestly dont see the huge point of that since they are both falling fire rocks from a volcano. the only difference is that the ones from Twilight Princess explodes. -- Wolfgerlion64 (talk) 02:19, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

Redirects exist for a reason. - TonyT S C 02:56, 11 January 2017 (UTC)
It dont work with me :( -- Wolfgerlion64 (talk) 03:08, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

New Navigation System

Hey there! :) I've been working on this idea for a couple of hours now. So before finishing it, I wanted to know what you think about it. You can test it out here!

I think the utility is pretty obvious so I won't explain it, I'll let you experience it. :) If you got any template/programming stuff you'd need to do for the wiki, hit me up, I'm a computer science student with some free time on my hand.

PS: PHIM stands for Phantom Hourglass Interactive Map. MannedTooth (talk) 06:54, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

We do have a template for the PH Sea Chart which serves the same purpose. - Chuck * (Talk) 17:28, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
Well, it's not exactly the same thing, the current map is only a world map allowing you to click on island and to go on their island, mine is more sophisticated, it allows you to zoom in or out of places, explore and discover the map, try it out, click on the northwestern sea (the only sea chart done for now, in the water) then go to the isle of gust, you can click on the temple to explore it and its floors. This idea would be nice, and I'd be ready to do that for other games too. MannedTooth (talk) 18:23, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
Hmm, I see that clicking things brings me to a new page. It would be preferable if it was all on the same page. - TonyT S C 20:05, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
By that, do you mean that the page should never reload itself or it can reload the page with a different map? MannedTooth (talk) 20:09, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
Ideally it shouldn't have to be reloaded. - TonyT S C 20:55, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
Alright! Gonna see what I can do! Would that be something we'd want if it works? MannedTooth (talk) 02:23, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
I think so. - TonyT S C 02:28, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
What comes to mind is utilizing the Tabs.js or Toggle.js (MediaWiki:Common.js), however the nature of the imagemap extension makes it (seemingly) impossible to apply the required classes (not even on the image map tag itself >_<).
An alternative method could be (rectangular-only?) elements positioned over the relevant areas instead of imagemaps (which seems messy, but we could probably tidy it up with template-fu), or if irregular shapes, I vaguely remember looking up inline svg shapes.

Typo in admin name

I just noticed that you made a typo in this edit, it's AzelleAx, not AzelleAz ! :P MannedTooth (talk) 02:22, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. - TonyT S C 02:28, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

Anything to do?

So, as you can tell, lately, I've been wandering around the wiki and doing just about anything I could do, but I was wondering, is there actually anything useful I could do? Like, something that needs to be done? MannedTooth (talk) 04:22, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

Certainly. We have a number of pages that need creation, as you can see here. One such page we need is for Ember, the owner of the Riverside Stable in Breath of the Wild. Would you like to start work on that? - TonyT S C 03:48, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
For Ember, I've tried to make something, but apparently, he has the EXACT same dialog as Embry, so I suggest that those pages be merged under a title such as "Stable Owners" ? Anyway, making a page for Ember seems pretty pointless since it'd be just a literal copy n paste of Embry's page. Let me know what you think! :P MannedTooth (talk) 04:33, 6 February 2017 (UTC)

Additions to a Translations page

I'm a very new user, signed up to make some additions to Tri Force Heroes Translations/Characters, mostly of Canadian French names. I see the page was locked by you almost exactly a year ago. Is there any way I can submit these additions to a staff member for approval? HelpTheWretched (talk) 22:06, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

You can suggest alterations via the talk page, but for the sake of keeping these articles as factual as possible, editing has been locked from the public and in general only names verified by staff are accepted. - TonyT S C 03:48, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! I've just done that. HelpTheWretched (talk) 03:57, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

Staff Application?

Hi there, I was wondering how to apply for a staff application and if you're still accepting? Sage of Cosmos (talk) 20:02, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Ah okay. Thanks. - metalreflectslime 1-20-17.

Staff applications are still open, yes. The site notice for it will be removed when we are no longer accepting applications. - TonyT S C 03:48, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

Thanks, I applied and sent the email for staff application. I hope to hear back from you! Sage of Cosmos (talk) 21:58, 2 February 2017 (UTC)

Why aren't Anons allowed to edit the wiki.

I have a consern, many Wikis and most others use annon editing, but why not us? Megalodon966 (talk)

It takes little effort to register an account and correspondence with users is easier with accounts. What other Wikis do is their own thing. - TonyT S C 20:44, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
I get it now. Megalodon966 (talk) 20:46, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

My account

I think I'll come back for a while, can you reactivate my slack account? Thanks. PPLToast (talk) 14:35, 7 March 2017 (UTC)

I cannot create an account

Hi,

I cannot create my account, because I have this message :

htt: // img110. xooimage. com/ files/ 0 /5 /3 /sans-titre-51c9e37 .png

(put everything in one line and add a p to htt)

New contributor cannot put links, it's not clever at all. :| --Firelluigi (talk) 12:11, 9 March 2017 (UTC)

Sorry to get back to you so late. There's a few things:
Anonymous editing is now off.
You should be able to merge your old account and new one together. Just read the FAQ here for that. You can also regain your old account name as well, you just have to follow the procedure detailed there and in the email you send, mention that you're from Zelda Wiki. They've been pretty quick with the process. Hope that helps. TriforceTony (talk) 09:47, 11 March 2017 (UTC)

Food Page Cleanup

I put a bunch of ideas on how to organize and cleanup the Food page on my user page, since that page was locked. I agree it needs some serious cleanup done. Check it out if you'd like. Also, the "Create your own sandbox" button doesn't seem to work, maybe an issue from recent move. I wanted to put this in a sandbox but couldn't figure out how. Thanks. - Protokhal (talk) 20:09, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

You should be able to manually make a sandbox by going to User:Protokhal/Sandbox. TriforceTony (talk) 22:45, 10 March 2017 (UTC)
Well that's easy. Sorry, and thanks. - Protokhal (talk) 07:47, 11 March 2017 (UTC)

I wasn't personalizing anything

On the Bolson article, I honestly never knew refurbishment was a legit word & mistakenly saw it as a typo. (Given the N & B keys are right next to each other.) This isn't my first wiki, & I mean no ill intentions on this site, I just want to help out to the best of my ability by fixing errors when I see one. (Or in this case, think I see one.) --Boygeymario (talk) 20:12, 6 April 2017 (UTC)

Helping out

Hey there! I am new to this (maybe you saw my pm on ZU) so I'll cut to the point. I was simply wondering if there was anything specific that I could to to help out? I'm still trying to figure out the wikitext also, so I doubt ill be able to do much in the way of coding but I'm ready and willing to do whatever is needed! Thanks!! Domozilla777 (talk) 16:18, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

Absolutely, we'd love to have your help. Let me see... We actually need to move over some articles from the Breath of the Wild Gamepedia, so maybe you could help by moving over Material articles? If that sounds good to you, you can start out by making a sandbox here with information from here and I can look over it and give you advice on what to do.
I'm terribly sorry for not responding to your PM, but talk page messages here are indeed a better means of contacting me. Thanks for your interest in helping out! TriforceTony (talk) 11:57, 13 April 2017 (UTC)

The Third Party and the Review Period

Hi Tony, I'm a bit curious as to the who this third party is. General editors don't know who the third party is and the third party seems to be taking a looong time to review the pages. So that gives me a rather unfavorable first impression of this third party. I'm curious if I can learn a bit more about them and what's going on? Thanks! Editorguy117 (talk) 21:04, 14 May 2017 (UTC)
