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!

Thanks

I'd just like to thank you for all your work on this wiki; you are the most active person on this wiki and have made several great changes. Sometimes I fix people's edits to help patrollers, but when you edit a page I don't check it because I know it will always be perfect. Once again, thank you so much! - AZeldaPlayer24 (talk)

Edits

Just want to say thanks for all your help. It is very much appreciated! Mases (talk) 17:20, March 4, 2020 (UTC)

Hey budy. Wanted to ask if you had Discord. Would love to chat. Thanks against for all your hard work! Mases (talk) 04:59, May 9, 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, messages exchanged :) - Sanityormadness (talk) 22:06, May 9, 2020 (UTC)

Hey I'd also like to thank you for your work as well, I appreciate it. I made the Side Quests page, and one of your edits included an update on the name of the Koholint Sword, which I'm actually curious about. It went from Ultimate Sword to Seashell Sword to Koholint Sword, so all over the place, not entirely sure why that is and if there's any source material for the naming of this sword. Gowther32 (talk) 03:19, June 7, 2020 (UTC)

Thanks :)
I'm not sure of the exact history - in the original GB version, it was just the L-2 Sword, IIRC - but Link's Awakening on Switch calls it the Koholint Sword, and I was just fixing it to match that - Sanityormadness (talk)

Hey, I would like you to fix a small mistake in the page "Link's Awakening Secret Seashells (Game Boy)". Under "Secret Seashell #06" it says "After obtaining at least five Secret Seashells.." when it should say "after obtaining exactly five secret Seashell" since you can't get that secret seashell if you have more than five secret seashells. Thank you for reading :) TheLegendofZeldaplayer (talk) 06:34, January 11, 2021 (UTC)

Help stuff

Thxs for the help. I only know things from Breath of The Wild and I did not know about the help stuff in it. So thank you for telling me.

Pages

Can you do some more charecter pages? I made one for the guy with his so called "Master Torch" and one for the Master Torch. I did some research online for the pages to help and thank you for adding the picture for me. I dont know how to add pictures cause I am still getting used to making pages. Also thanks for rewriting the set page and adding to the Blood Moon page which I added because when I was editing a page and clicked on a Link that said Blood Moon, I was taken to a page that did not exist so I made one. i already knew a lot about blood moons having seen them many times during my adventures in Breath of The Wild. And can you do some of the pages in the Wanted Pages List for me please? Thats where I got some of my ideas for the pages. Is there a Classified Envelope page? (Its from Breath of The Wild.) If not please make one cause I just got the Classified Envelope after getting all the pics.

Sandbox

Hi! I saw that you updated a photo of a Gerudo on my sandbox...just wondering why..because I'd rather others not edity sandbox.. thanks, just wondering! {{SUBST:Color|Pink|Zeldazeldazelda}} (talk) 04:08, July 10, 2020 (UTC)

*checks it is what they think it is. It is.*
There were a lot of duplicate images, most of which had a clear "best" version and a number of lower-quality copies. I was going through a project of trying to clear out the low-quality OOT dupes at the time, and part of that was getting rid of all links to the "bad" versions - even if the admins were willing to delete images still linked in user space, it would just clog up Category:Pages with broken file links with pages that "shouldn't" be fixed. And if you look at the old version, you'll see that the previous image is actually gone now.
PS: I would suggest replacing File:Kokiri.jpg with File:Kokiri.png. Apparently, I missed that one at the time... - Sanityormadness (talk) 17:25, July 10, 2020 (UTC)

Bayge

Can you look through the Bayge page I made? I did a lot of research online but I do not know how to add pics or how to add links to other pages. I am making some pages for people in Breath of The Wild that do not have a page. Thanks again! Oh and I just made a Page call Pelsion.LinkandMasterSword (talk) 19:44, July 10, 2020 (UTC)LinkandMasterSword

Um, did you copy most of it from [1]? - Sanityormadness (talk) 22:11, July 10, 2020 (UTC)


Well some but I chose the same words as the gamepedia for some reason. I know a lot about Bayge so it was easy for me. Anyway going to add to that page. Bye

Sorry about that I'll make sure not to make Articles on the Talk pages. Thanks for all of the help.

Redead

Can you Hyrule Castle Town to where they appear please? I did not understand it as it was really difficult for me. Thanks again! - LinkandMasterSword (talk) 19:08, July 16, 2020 (UTC)LinkandMasterSword 2:07 July 16th 2020

You mean the Korok Seed locations? AZeldaPlayer24(talk) 13:10, July 16, 2020(MST)
Yeah, I'm a little bit confused. ReDead makes me think of the HCT Market as an adult in Ocarina of Time, where there's a bunch of them arranged in a circle around the middle, but I'm not sure what's being asked... - Sanityormadness (talk) 22:50, July 16, 2020 (UTC)

Pictures

Can you add a picture to the newest page i made please? Thanks again.

Glitch

Hello Sanityormadness. I noticed that you put the page Glitch under "cat|Game Mechanics". Should they be categorized under game mechanics even though most if not all glitches tend to exploit or break the mechanics of the game? I do not intend for this to sound like I am telling you that what you did was wrong. I understand that if you you are trying to categorize every page, than this is the only category out of the currents one that could be used. I was just wondering. Link Mario Link Mario-14235 (talk) 11:28, August 1, 2020 (UTC)

I was actually wrestling with that. The thing is not only was there not a better category I could see offhand, I don't want to make a category just for one article. If you can think of something, I'm willing to run with it. - Sanityormadness (talk) 15:15, August 1, 2020 (UTC)

New Game

Hi! I hope you are having a great day! I was working on a Zelda fan game "The Legend of Zelda: The Lost Oracle" And I am about to finish it. I will like to share it with the Zelda community. But I need some information to share it with the community. Hope to hear from you soon! Samz (talk) 20:14, December 25, 2020 (UTC)

Hestu directly going to the Korok Forest without stopping at the stables.

From this revision: https://www.zeldadungeon.net/wiki/index.php?title=Hestu&diff=291552&oldid=291550

I have tried to find a source that would prove that not stopping at the Stables and going directly to the Korok Forest will make Hestu appear at the forest, but I haven't found any other than what just happened in my current run of the game. I'm currently doing a run without stopping at Impa's house, and while I recovered the maracas for Hestu and gained the slots that send him to the stables, I never went through the stables, instead going to the Divine Beasts and then getting the Master Sword at the Korok Forest with the bare minimum hearts. Hestu was already at the Korok Forest.

An additional problem aside to what you've pointed out by tagging the lack of source is that, even if I were to convince you do a run yourself through the game, that's not a source either, but at least it would verify to you personally that Hestu goes directly to the Korok Forest indeed.-Crateras (talk) 21:12, January 12, 2021 (UTC)

  • I found proof: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOFIxBctT4Y&t=327s (Context: Player collected the 900 seeds before talking to Hestu. After upgrading some slots for Link, the player teleports directly to the Korok Forest without ever stopping at any stable, and Hestu is already there) Abarbarea (talk) 23:45, March 21, 2021 (UTC)

Migrating Shield-Surfing

Hi, and sorry to bother you so much with this.

I wonder if it would be prudent for me to migrate the Shield-Surfing page to just "Shield Surf". I get the feeling that most of the edit wars for the redirects stem from the page's title itself. When I first created the page, I wasn't looking at the game's prompt for the ability controls, but rather, I was looking at the page Selmie's Shield-Surfing. I admit that I was more worried about writing the page than actually looking at the title.

Please, let me know.

Poe Soul searching in Twilight Princess

Hello, I'm very new to this. I wanted to correct the Poe Soul searching page for Twilight Princess. Entry #14, in the graveyard, it should say that the Poe only appears at night after pushing the tombstone. Took me some time to find the last poe ;) Thanks for the guides.

Question About Weapon Images Use

Hello,

I am working on articles for Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity on the Koei Fandom Wiki. I was wondering what was the policy of using images here for a different Wiki, if you permit other wikis to use your images (with proper credit of course). Thank you, SonsofZeruiah (talk) 22:00, May 17, 2021 (UTC)

Speaking as an admin, I'll talk to the other staff, I'm not sure we have a policy on the matter as such.
Speaking as an individual user, I would prefer not to see images I've personally uploaded end up on Fandom/Wikia, since I have Problems with them as a company, given how they treat their users & wikis. - Sanityormadness (talk) 22:31, May 17, 2021 (UTC)

Twilight Princess East/West Confusion

Hello. I saw your post in AZeldaPlayer24's discussion page about clarifying Twilight Princess' East/West location names. I had originally edited pages on Castle Town's East and West Roads and thought that what I wrote did an okay job explaining the distinction between the different versions.

This was the edit I made to the Castle Town East Road article as an example: https://www.zeldadungeon.net/wiki/Special:MobileDiff/330133

I edited it to reflect its canonical Western orientation, but the only thing I couldn't change was the article's title and thought perhaps an admin could change it. AZeldaPlayer24 didn't approve my edits and restored the pages to how they were before my edits. I'm curious to know your opinion about how it might be best to properly distinguish the canon directions.

I see that there is one page that was edited to properly reflect what is canon. This is how the page says it was edited:

File:Yunobo-BotW.png

Yes, it is from Fandom/Wikia, but I was the one who took the screenshot and made it transparent. I'm the same person who made the file, Diamondbull. Please put the file back because it is my screenshot. --Nackle the Mogma (talk) 00:06, September 8, 2021 (UTC)

RE: Necluda

Me neither! It can get really confusing at times. For instance, why is Faron Woods labeled as just a mere place & not an entire region marking Faron's wooded areas? The game tends to mistake a lot of Faron's land for Necluda's because of it. BoygeyPumpkineer (talk) 23:04, September 23, 2021 (UTC)
