Reopen Zeldapedia on Fandom

This wiki is vastly inferior than Zeldapedia on Fandom. There are many outdated articles, less details of in-game topics and many blank information (like item locations). I don't know why Fandom had to 'merge' their wiki with Gamepedia. This isn't merging, this is forcing users to move here. Why can't they keep both wikis? Cryinglighting (talk) 09:20, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

Hey, there. I was a bureaucrat over at Zeldapedia and helped organize the merge here to Zelda Wiki. Let me assure you that no one was forced into anything – we actually held a large community discussion that culminated in a vote; the community of Zeldapedia overwhelmingly voted to merge with Zelda Wiki.
I'm genuinely unsure why you think ZW is inferior; it was pretty well-known, even among the few ZP editors remaining, that ZW was and is superior to Zeldapedia. If anything, there are more details, fewer outdated articles, and a larger and more dedicated editor base.
Gamepedia and Fandom are one now, like it or not, and it's best to accept that and move on. There's no purpose in having two Zelda wikis on what will be one unified platform; not to mention this wiki will eventually migrate to Fandom's UCP. – Ceiling Master (talk) 13:52, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

A Link to the Past GBA Tile

Is it possible to add a Link to the Past & Four Swords Tile into the Remakes section of the Main page? I noticed that this game is absent, despite being a remake on the same magnitude of WWHD and TPHD which are there. It did add a new dungeon and many new changes, so I would say that its not a port, but a remake, which should warrant a tile for it. I know FS has a tile on the main series section, but that doesn't mean the aLttp remake shouldn't also have one. Gallery:A Link to the Past has artwork from the GBA remake that could be used for the tile, such as the Geldman picture.

Thanks, Bradtheconqueror-gpuser (talk) 19:24, 8 April 2021 (UTC)

I agree, iirc it was on the page at some point but got removed. (could be wrong about that) JumbledLimes (talk) 20:00, 8 April 2021 (UTC)JumbledLimes

Japan vs. American Release Years

I think we should change the years to the first years the games released. I think the readers of the wiki are more interested in the year the game first released rather than when it became accessible in North America. For example, we show the first Zelda as being released in 1987 as it was in North America. However, it was first released for the Disk System in 1986 in Japan. So yeah, we should probably change it a bit. Mockypocky (talk) 14:43, 16 August 2021 (UTC)

Ads

Is there a setting I can use so that the ads are less...out of control? They're constantly popping up over the page, covering material when I try to read it, wigging out when I scroll up or down, and autoplaying. It's incredibly weird, and to my knowledge FANDOM wikis aren't supposed to have ads if you're logged in, so what gives?{{SUBST:KrytenKoroSig}} 17:29, 11 February 2022 (UTC)

Just download an ad-blocker. Mockypocky (talk) 16:14, 12 February 2022 (UTC)
That's not an option for me. Is there any FANDOM setting that I can use to fix this?{{SUBST:KrytenKoroSig}} 19:35, 2 March 2022 (UTC)
Ads appear for all users even if they are logged in unless you have the membership. If you're an active editor then you can earn the membership to not get ads, otherwise there is no setting to turn off ads. β€” 𝐌𝐚𝐠𝐒𝐜𝐦𝐚𝐬𝐨𝐧𝟏𝟎𝟎𝟎 (𝐭𝐚π₯𝐀) 22:43, 2 March 2022 (UTC)

Release Template Changes

On all Zelda releases it lists the regions the games were released in, but it lists Europe as 'European Union' which is wrong as the UK is in Europe but no longer in 'European Union' maybe we can change the template data to correct this, as most if not all Zelda games released in 'EU' was released in the UK, thankyou everyone! β€”Preceding unsigned comment added by Ezee03 02:01, 27 February 2022 (UTC)

We could change it to "PAL" Mockypocky (talk) 13:09, 28 February 2022 (UTC)
I think Europe would be best, as the UK no longer uses PAL either Ezee03 (talk) 17:35, 28 February 2022 (UTC)
We're thinking about making it "Council of Europe," as that would still include UK and the other EU countries. Although, we're still discussing because it also includes some countries that weren't in the EU, so there may be a better option we can find. We may just need to make every country individual or try to see what Nintendo does and model it after that. β€” 𝐌𝐚𝐠𝐒𝐜𝐦𝐚𝐬𝐨𝐧𝟏𝟎𝟎𝟎 (𝐭𝐚π₯𝐀) 02:06, 2 March 2022 (UTC)
I would recommend we do what Wikipedia does, for example 'Japan' 'North America' and --- 'Europe' I think 'Europe' would be best as its a common phase and region used and helps make it easier to read/understand. Ezee03 (talk) 03:34, 2 March 2022 (UTC)
Let me know what you guys decide, I would really push for 'Europe' as its used the most on Wiki's and would be understood very easily, thankyou! Ezee03 (talk) 03:37, 2 March 2022 (UTC)
does anybody know what Nintendo officially calls the region? And also should we use whatever the region was called at the time of release?{{SUBST:KrytenKoroSig}} 18:01, 3 March 2022 (UTC)
I think the best option is to use the most simple term, such as 'North America' 'Japan' 'Europe' as most if not all wiki's in general use these terms and its easily the best way to help people understand, by the way, any updates? Ezee03 (talk) 20:54, 3 March 2022 (UTC)
i agree we should use europe most wiki use this β€”Preceding unsigned comment added by JackZone88 01:40, 6 March 2022 (UTC)
It took a while, but we eventually got something working a few days ago. {{Release}} now supports all countries outlined by Nintendo here, so instead of using "European Union," we use individual countries like Nintendo does. The reason we didn't use "Europe" is because different countries inside of Europe may have different release dates. The game pages may need to be updated because the code has changed a bit for how we list countries. β€” 𝐌𝐚𝐠𝐒𝐜𝐦𝐚𝐬𝐨𝐧𝟏𝟎𝟎𝟎 (𝐭𝐚π₯𝐀) 16:07, 28 March 2022 (UTC)
