Hey! Listen! Welcome to our Wiki, Atticus!

We're glad that you signed up so that you can edit, build, and shape the Zelda Dungeon Wiki! Before you start editing, why don't you check out some of these useful links and read these basic rules?

  • Edit your settings. Make sure you have set up your settings to make the wiki work the way you want it. We have a bunch of customizations that we have spent time creating, and we hope that you utilize them to the fullest.
  • Please treat all members with respect. We don't want to have to ban someone because there is an issue between our users.
  • Use wikicode and link templates when making edits to properly format pages. Use templates often to save on coding everything.
  • If you have some questions, instead of sitting around doing nothing, ask our administration team. They won't bite.
  • Head to our help page to find some links to helpful pages that will teach you how to do many things on the wiki.
  • Read the FAQ to find the answers to a few common questions.
  • Please use proper grammar and strive for good edits.
  • Always sign talk pages with four tildes (~~~~). This will automatically sign the page with your username and date.
  • Use talk pages to talk about edits on pages. Do not participate in editing wars (i.e. editing a page over and over again to make the page what you think it should be rather than what another member thinks) as they are counter productive and will not solve the problem. Use the talk pages like they were meant to be used.

We hope that you enjoy your time here on the Zelda Dungeon Wiki and that you will help us make lots of really good edits. Keep in mind that the administration team will be watching for quality editors to bring them on to our site staff.

Do you have any initial questions? Feel free to ask on one of our staff talk pages.

Thanks again for joining! Can't wait to see you around!

Categories and Infoboxes

Hello. I just wanted to make a quick suggestion. With all of the pages you're making, you should probably add as many categories to each page as you can, and always try to use an Infobox template. I feel bad going back through and messing with all of your edits, since the rest of the page is great. XD Categories can be added by typing in {{Cat| category name}}. Examples of categories would be "Game Name" Items – like {{Cat|Ocarina of Time Items}} – "Game Name" Characters, or Enemies, or Bosses... you know. And if a page is short and more info could possibly be added in the future, add a stub template with {{Stub}}. Just look at a completed page if that didn't make any sense. ^^ Heroine of Time 21:03, July 28, 2012 (CDT)

Before you make pages...

Hey Atticus, I have noticed that you have been very helpful here at the wiki in the past couple of weeks, and I wanted to thank you, and encourage you to continue. However, today you made a couple of new pages today that I wanted to point out. Don't get me wrong; its great that's you're creating new pages, there are lots of them out there that still need to be created, but the pages you're creating have already been created. For example, today you created the page Evil Crystals. However, they already have a page, here. My tip for you here to always first seach for the title you are gonna creat in the search feature, before you create a page. This will insure the page hasn't been create yet. Also, when creating pages, most of them will be singular. Rarely will a page be plural. Again, thanks for all the help at the wiki, and I encourage you to continue editing.

When in doubt of an article title, you can also check the [[Text Dumps]] to make sure you're using exactly the right title. << Locke(T·C·P) >> 22:03, July 30, 2012 (CDT)

Thanks, and my bad. I'll do that next time. Is it your job to be this formal or something? XD
