Hi I have been editing the enemies section of the oot part of The wiki and was wondering if I was doing well and once I finish could we add that to the walk through enemies page ?

Habertime Made Edits

Hello mases I have made 25 plus edits and they fit all the requirements for the Link plush program. I have emailed and Skyped you but have received no response. I was wondering if I now qualify for a plush Link and if I do can you send it to me. I worked really hard on my edits and spent a lot of time making them as far as I am concerned correct. Please respond in some form soon, thanks.

- Habertime

Sorry about the delay. I finally got in contact with you via Skype and your plushie is on its way. Thanks for your edits. Mases (talk) 22:14, December 21, 2014 (UTC)

Made the Edits

I didn't make 20 edits, but the ones I did make for this are quite a bit bigger than the required 100. I also emailed you with my username. Hope that I made enough for the plush :D

Giveaway

Hi Mases,

I have edited various pages throughout the Wiki (mostly Majora's Mask and Minish Cap things). I was wondering, even if I have the required 2000 characters, do I still need to have 20 pages edited (I think I have around 15 now)? Thanks in advance!

The Free Giveaway

Hi Mases, I have written 3 small pages for the Great Butterfly Fairy, the Great Mayfly Fairy and the Great Dragonfly Fairy for the free Link plush contest. Do I have to write more things on the wiki to try to win the Link plush? Or is this enough? Edit: I made two little pages for Pina and Brocco too Moon Rain (talk) 06:27, November 24, 2013 (CST)Moon Rain

Thanks for the edits. Can you contact me on Skype (username: armochicken13) or e-mail: mases26@gmail.com. I think you are on your way but still need to make more edits. Thanks. ~Mases

The Giveaway

Hi Mases, I have already emailed you my username but I am posting on here because I don't know what you see first. So hopefully you can review my edits.

Skyward Sword Pages

Hi Mases,

I was browsing to see what other Skyward Sword pages were needed, and I noticed that the Amber Relic was on the list, however, I have already edited the Amber Relic. I think I know why, but... It's a little odd. The page I edited was titled Amber relic. The one that's needed is Amber Relic. One is capitalized in both words, and the other isn't. So... What should I do? Zelda geek 14:01, October 27, 2011 (CDT)

I moved the page to the correct Amber Relic title. Thanks for pointing that out. << Locke(T·C·P) >> 14:18, October 27, 2011 (CDT)
This is something that normal users can't do, so please continue to notify patrollers (orange names) or administrators (green names) via their talk page for problems like this. << Locke(T·C·P) >> 15:34, October 27, 2011 (CDT)
Should we not just place a redirect in the page and move all of the information to a new page? -InoShikaCho-(Talk) 16:14, October 27, 2011 (CDT)
It's best to move the page so that edit history is carried over to the new page. << Locke(T·C·P) >> 16:24, October 27, 2011 (CDT)

Walkthrough Pages

I have noticed that many of the pages for the Ocarina of Time dungeons have full walkthroughs for the dungeons. This obviously does not belong on the wiki (or at least on these pages). Is it fine to delete them, or should I move them to a new location? -InoShikaCho-(Talk) 21:00, October 27, 2011 (CDT)

Don't remove them yet, please. Those are pages for the Zelda Dungeon Master Quest walkthrough that was written when this wiki was for more staff matters. We'll work on getting them in their proper places. — ~David (Talk) 21:10, October 27, 2011 (CDT)

Index Page

Hey Mases,

I think that we should edit the main page a little bit. What do you think though? -Ninten* 15:54, December 30, 2011 (CST)

I definitely think the index page needs a revamp. It's been talked about, but feel free to try some things out on your own sandbox page first and we'll see how it goes. Mases 00:04, December 31, 2011 (CST)

Three Things

Hey Mases three Things
1.How do you find out a youtube ID so more videos could be added to the Wiki quicker
2.Should there be a Walkthrough page on the Wiki?
3.Please make a Video Walkthrough for The Minish Cap! Please! Thank you!
Noop3451 05:22, April 21, 2012 (CDT)

File types

Hey Mases, The wiki files only have photo files. However, I think the wiki should also except MP3 Files. This is because people who never played let's say, minish cap could listen to the mount crenal music. they could also hear sound effects like navi so they understand how annoying she is. (and it would make the site more wiki-like)! Your Truly, Noop3451 (Talk|Contribs|Uplds|PM) 11:51, May 31, 2012 (CDT)

omg, shes SO annoying! Zeldazeldazelda (talk) 19:20, April 18, 2017 (UTC)

Add other spin-off titles to the navigation bar

You should add other completed spin-off games page such as Tingle's Balloon Fight DS, Too Much Tingle Pack, The Legend of Zelda Game Watch, and Zelda (Game & Watch) to the navigation bar of ZD. Other Games navigation bar currently only have 2 games added...

Items for Faron Province

Hi Mases! I see you are on alot for this Wiki, so I think you might know the answer for my question. When adding the items to this page (Skyward Sword), should I include the Goddess Cubes or not? Also, should I put every item you recieve with in the Faron Province (Beetle, Water Scale, etc) or should we leave those items for the dungeon/area you get them (Skyview Temple/etc)?  the preceding unsigned post by Odd300 (contribs) at 14:14, October 18, 2012‎ (UTC)

I'm not sure if I'm understanding your question correctly, but Goddess Cubes can be included in item lists. The Skyward Sword page already has these items, so I assume you mean the pages for different areas in SS such as Faron Province. I'm not sure how useful an item list would be for the regions, but I suppose it makes sense to include items you receive in sub-regions, such as dungeons, to an extent. You do receive the Beetle in Faron Province even if it's within Skyview Temple specifically, but it wouldn't make sense to list certain things like Small Keys. << Locke(T·C·P) >> 13:27, October 18, 2012 (CDT)
Thanks for answering my questions, Locke. I see now that my second question doesn't make that much sense.

Korean release date templates

Can you or another admin create the template necessary for adding Korean release dates to game and console pages? I'm asking because in all other wikis I've been to, admins are the only people that can make such changes, so I think that applies to this wiki, too. Wwtoonlinkfan 15:32, November 20, 2012 (CST)

Thanks, we're editing the Template right now to include Korea. Locke edited the template and we just uploaded the image. Thanks. Mases 15:53, November 20, 2012 (CST)
Check out the {{Region}} documentation for adding Korean release dates. For example, {{Region|kr|y=2012|m=11|d=18}} produces South Korea November 18, 2012 . You can go ahead and edit pretty much anything that isn't protected and doesn't explicitly say not to. Just be careful with high use templates. << Locke(T·C·P) >> 15:58, November 20, 2012 (CST)
Thanks! wwtoonlinkfan 16:53, November 20, 2012 (CST)

Images from Zelda Wiki

Hey, Mases. Greetings from your old friends at Zelda Wiki. I'm Hylian King, by the way, the wiki's rookie admin. I don't think we got to really know each other well, but we did talk in the ZW chat a bit if you remember.

So anyway, it has come to our attention that one of your users has uploaded quite a few of our images on Zelda Dungeon Wiki and has not sourced them (here are a few examples). I just wanted to make sure the ZD staff was aware of this. It would be much appreciated if we could at least be credited as a source for these images, as Zelda Wiki has always done for ZD's images in the past.

Wiki's looking good, by the way. The progress you guys have made in such a small timeframe is pretty impressive.

All the best, Hylian King 12:17, January 22, 2013 (CST)

Hi Hylian King. I didn't know ZeldaWiki.org changed its policy on image sourcing. It originally didn't have a policy, and then we implemented one back in... Circa 2008-09, and then ended up getting rid of it in 2009 after long debate. For the main reason being, most of the images in question were from official artwork pieces released by Nintendo, scans from magazines, or images extracted from games such as models and screens. Thus, I believe Fan Artwork was the only type of image work that had been credited.
It was way back in 2011 when I stopped making considerable edits to ZeldaWiki.org and launched our Zelda Wiki, but if you see post 2009 edits by me and the several 100 images I uploaded. We abandoned the image sourcing policy, per discussion. My Contributions. Can you refer me to the location of your sourcing policy at ZeldaWiki.org in regards to image citing. Thanks. Mases 13:29, January 22, 2013 (CST)
This page details the policy. "Every new image uploaded must be correctly attributed to its creator, editor, or re-distributor."Justin 14:06, January 22, 2013 (CST)
That policy dates back to December 2008 after we made that policy. In early 2009 there was heavy discussion about this. I had populated the Wiki with 1000's of images, sourcing Zelda Dungeon. Everything from artwork pieces, screenshots, sprites, etc... This was later viewed as an abuse of the image system, since it was creating 1000's of links to Zelda Dungeon for images that were really copyright to Nintendo and not to me. Doesn't matter if I captured and edited them. Thus we implemented a new policy. It is still at Stone Watchers and can be viewed. Look at the archives section, should be somewhere around March of 2009. You should update the Wiki Image Sourcing page as well since it still shows the old policy from pre-2009. Mases 14:22, January 22, 2013 (CST)
I can't speak for anything that happened at the wiki circa 2010, and perhaps our policy pages do need updating, but I assure you the current stance of the wiki is to give credit where credit is due. This is encouraged via the "Source" field of our upload form.
Let's cut to the chase here: I'm guessing you don't intend to credit us as a source. I do not believe it is unreasonable to ask it of you, but so be it. You're not legally obligated to comply, of course, and since quibbling about it would only be a waste of time and effort for everyone involved, I won't pursue the issue any further. I just wanted to make sure you guys were aware that these images are coming from a competing wiki. Past that, the situation is evidently yours to deal with as you see fit.
Best of luck in all your future endeavors. Hylian King 15:29, January 22, 2013 (CST)

That Link Plushie Giveaway

Just search "Tetraforce" in the search bar at the wiki and that's mine! (I don't know if I qualify or not but please tell me if I do or not) ;)~~WiseSaladin3~~ 13:31, November 26, 2013 (CST)

That Link Plushie Giveaway

Hi Mases my username is supercloud64 and I wanted to know if making an entire new page counts towards the giveaway. Recently I made a page for the minigame Octoball Derby in A Link between Worlds, and just wanted to know if it was good for the giveaway. If not at least the zelda wiki community has a page on that minigame now. The page is pretty developed.

Editing Contest

Hey there, Mases! I already contacted you on Skype, and I don't think our time schedules are lined up properly to receive messages and talk. I am messaging you here to confirm my entry, and I do believe I was one of the first to do the edits. I have made 12 large edits and I believe that qualifies for a check from the administrators. Thank you very much, I'll talk to you later! Slayos (talk) 11:19, November 28, 2013 (CST)Slayos

Made 9 edits so far, lengthy ones

Hello! I made the following edits: (*The ones in bold are MAJOR MAJOR edits!!!)

1. The Wind Waker Bosses (There was NO Helmaroc King description. The Helmaroc King serves as a boss, so I added a description for him under this page. Unfortunately, I could not add a picture. I'm fairly new to the wiki-editing process.) 2. Skyloft (I greatly elaborated on the history of Skyloft, explaining how Her Grace lifted a crop of land and saved it from the demonic hordes that tried to invade and further explained how the Bazaar is a major facility that serves the Skyloftians with its stores, cafes, and markets.) 3. Skyview Temple (I reorganized information under this article and described the environment and diversity of this dungeon, explaining its mood, theme, and explorational methods.) 4. Link (Link's summaries were fairly short for some of the games. I edited, adjusted, and lengthened his summaries for Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword, and The Wind Waker.) 5. Windfall Island (I made edits on general information and topics from activities to do, general notes, trivia, and environment.) 6. Triforce (The Triforce paragraph was utterly disappointing. I lengthened this article so much. This article did NOT talk about the role of the Triforce in each game and the series. I included its role as a possible corrupted power and also explained how it caused much of the conflict in the Hyrule Kingdom. Because I talked about so much, I ask that you please read over it.) 7. Great Deku Tree (I lengthened how the Great Deku Tree had a major role in OoT and TWW and general information.) 8. Great Flood (Oh my god, the Great Flood article was so short, I almost puked. I've written a few articles and books for my friends about the Great Flood and added a good amount of information to this. I WILL BE ADDING MORE SOON ANYWAY. Because I talked about so much, I ask that you please read over it.) 9. World of the Ocean King (added some info to this page, will be adding more soon)

In addition to the following articles I edited, I made many punctuation errors, grammatical errors, fixed some general ideas and statements, and transferred information within articles to other parts of the same article and to other articles as well. I did not list these articles mainly because I had no profound impact on them.

I referred to my brain, zeldawiki.org, the games themselves, and the books and articles I've written to fix, edit, and add information.

If there are more edits that need to be made, please let me know asap and I will make some more! Thank you!

(*I also e-mailed this to you!)

Hi Mases. My name is RichiRay97 and I have made 20 edits on various pages for your contest. Please look to see if my edits are acceptable and if I will get a chance to win the Link plushie. Thanks!

Wind Waker

Mases, when are you guys going to do a video walkthrough for Wind Waker?

Making compact listings

Hey, im currently working on the location of every Hint Ghost and if you've checked you may have noticed the list is very long already due to that I don't know how to make the list more compact or something that will make it easier for users to scroll through the list, can you either make the list more compact or tell me so i can do it myself, which i would prefer as it would help me greatly --Alasor (talk) 04:53, July 31, 2014 (MDT)

Help Contents suggestions/requests for screenshots, instructions

Hello, I recently joined to start editing as I'm on this site quite a bit and thought I could help since I've been playing Zelda games since, well, 1990, I create web apps for a living (and am known for thorough help guides and documentation), I'm an adult with a 3DS... I'm attempting understand what is needed and how to do it and am confused. I would like to request more detailed documentation on the various Help Pages.

Screenshots for Format to Delineate Required Page Elements

Can you please add screenshots to this page? For example, an annotated screenshot of the important parts of a properly formatted article would be a great resource. Additionally, subsections with annotated screenshots for different types of pages would be nice. For example, see the below image.

Clarification on the Zelda Dungeon Wiki:Current Projects Listings

On the Zelda Dungeon Wiki:Current Projects page, a number of pages are listed that are being worked on, but the details on each are scant. Could the Admins please add notes about what is required? I attempted to compare the completed pages (e.g., The Legend of Zelda Story) with pages in progress (e.g., The Adventure of Link Bosses), and garnered a rough idea of what needs to be done, but am not sure. I'm assuming long-standing editors will know what to do, but for those of us who are new, it'd help us be more efficient.

For example, this could be something as simple as...

Thanks Rusty. Yes, we really need to clear that up. A lot of those ongoing projects were lingering from way back when we first launched the Wiki or within the first year. I'm going to clean that up when I get some time. Mases (talk) 23:01, December 27, 2014 (UTC)

Proper Linking/Navigation Structures

This will probably be learned after more editing, but a Site Map-like Help page would be nice. This is more along the lines of Format, but showing how child pages are related to parent pages.


Other Help Page Ideas

Other suggestions include fixing the side navigation Help link to actually link to the Help page and adding more templates. If you need help with this or the above suggested edits/additions, let me know and I can also work on these help pages.

Giveaway

Hey I heard about the giveaway and I made more than 25 contributions, and I'm glad I did, because the phantom hourglass and spirit tracks pages were lacking in some information. I want someone to check my work so I can know if I'm eligible for the giveaway.

Your edits looks decent. Could use some work, but off to a great start. You are almost there. Can you contact me via email so I can get your information. Email me at webmaster@zeldadungeon.net. Thanks. Mases (talk) 23:11, November 18, 2015 (UTC)

In Search for a Role

Hi Mases, I would like to help out with Zelda Dungeon into making it a more helpful site for everyone, but unfortunately I can't access my e-mail or my Skype due to some personal reasons, but I would still like to help with the site, is there anyway I am able to speak to you about that?

We use Discord or Skype to chat. You will need to be able to contact me somewhere to talk privately. You can email me at mases26@gmail.com, find me on Facebook, message the Zelda Dungeon page on Facebook, or sign up and private message me on the forums. Or if you have another way of contacting me, that's fine, just let me know. Mases (talk) 17:47, August 1, 2016 (UTC)

Item infobox

I started a discussion about the item infobox at Template_talk:Infobox. I'm not sure how many people would normally see that, though, so I also wanted to leave this comment about it on the userpages of admins and some other editors who seem to have shown interest in templates.

Contact Page Location?

Hey, so, I saw the thing about looking for people with knowledge in PHP, HTML, CSS, and MediaWiki on the FAQ. It mentions a Contact page, but I haven't seen any sign that it exists. I believe I meet the desired knowledge for HTML and CSS, and the other two shouldn't be too difficult for me to learn. It seems silly to me to apply when I'm only an autoconfirmed, but I want to help make the wiki the best it can be. Can you at least direct me to this contact page? I'd appreciate it.

Link's movements

I'm having trouble with Link movements he never stays still. Can you help me. I have Breath of the wild on switch. I have tried calibrating the controllers. Thank you.

I'm sorry. I'm not sure I can help you with that. Likely a controller issue. Maybe the joysticks are stuck in. Mases (talk) 02:00, August 5, 2019 (UTC)
