Locke is a Zelda Dungeon Wiki administrator. I mostly concern myself with the wiki content infrastructure, such as [[Categories]] and [[Templates]], and I'm also responsible for converting resources such as [[Interviews]] from their old site pages to their new home on the wiki. I am also a Zelda Dungeon webmaster.

My name comes from John Locke the philosopher, via Ender's Game, not from a TV show or video game. The best way to contact me is to ping me on ZD's Discord server.

Projects

Right now my main project here at the wiki (and ZD in general) is to migrate resources from the site to the wiki, where they'll be more manageable.

Interviews

Main article: Category:Interviews

I NEED YOUR HELP! While most of the interviews we had on the old interviews page have been transferred to the wiki, I did so by simply copy/pasting the code from the old page. These means they're all horribly formatted. These all need to be edited to match the formatting and style of completed interview pages (you can find examples on the category page). I'll be continuously working on this, but it will be great to get people to help lighten the load.

Infrastructure

I've also taken to focus on how categories link up to construct an intuitive 'structure' to the articles. ...not much to say about that. Check out the category listings!

Templates

I try to make it easier for contributors to put together content by making useful, intuitive, and extensible templates. Some templates I've created or contributed to, or am working on:

  • {{Box}} — As an effort to standardize the appearance of side content, this meta-template is used by many other formatting templates.
  • {{Ambox}} — This meta-template is used as a standard for all article message boxes that appear at the tops of articles or sections.
  • {{Navbox}} — This meta-template is used for the footer navigation boxes.
  • {{Dump}} — In addition to bringing all the text dumps to the wiki, I created this template to retrieve individual quotes from said dumps so as to reduce copy errors and enforce validity.
  • {{Caption}} — Caption templates work with the Dump template to automatically retrieve Fi/Navi/etc. captions according to an article's title.
  • {{Ref}} and {{References}} — These templates replace the Cite extension's <ref> and <references /> tags to work around some bugs and to make the code easier to use.
  • {{Tabs}} — One use of the alternative tab framework I created in order to support multiple tabsets jointly affecting one target.
  • {{Galbox}} and {{Listbox}} — These templates take just the name of a listing page as input and use Lua to parse that page and generate a Navbox.

Pages

These are pages into which I've put an exceptional amount of work, or which were initiated or mainly driven by me.

Game Stats

A vast majority of my playthroughs are 100%. I've never done a 3-heart challenge, but I may consider it at some point. Most of the games I have played only once, but a few I haven't kept track of. Rankings (i.e. my relative opinion) probably aren't accurate.

This is the timeline that I created and supported pre-Historia, updated with recent games. It supports the three-way split after OoT, but instead of the cop-out "what-if", I use a retcon of sorts: LttP was the sequel to OoT until WW bumped it out of the way, then FSA replaced OoT as LttP's prequel. The stories along the vertical axis, i.e. in the same era but on different timelines, match up quite nicely. I believe my timeline is still relevant because the developers view the "official" timeline as an interpretation of what's known of the history and still up for debate:

Fujibayashi: Lately within the company, a term called ‘New Translation’ has cropped up. (laughs) Strictly speaking, we don’t change it, but rather new information and truths come to light.

Famitsu: I see, so the way to interpret the lore of Breath of the Wild is still up for academic debate. (laughs)

Fujibayashi: That’s why you should pay attention to future studies as well! Please look forward to it. (laughs)
