== Island Navigation Template ==
Seems cool. But all those links look messy. There is an alternative. We can use the <span class="plainlinks">[http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:ImageMap ImageMap]</span> extension. It looks like it requires ImageMagick, and we seem to have the up and running now. On a similar note, the <span class="plainlinks">[http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:ImageLink ImageLink]</span> extension would be very useful for the Nominated, featured, and admin templates.{{:User:Matt/sig}} 18:11, January 3, 2009 (UTC)
:Oh, we'd need ImageMap either way. But I'd say we just have the map with the links in it.{{:User:Matt/sig}} 18:18, January 3, 2009 (UTC)
::ImageMap is what they've used/have installed at Zeldapendium; sometime soon, I'll look at installing both these extensions, plus <span class="plainlinks">[http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:RandomSelection this one]</span>. {{:User:Adam/sig}} 08:23, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
::OK, ImageMap and RandomSelection are successfully installed, tested and working. Unfortunately ImageLink is a no-go, as there's currently no build compatible with MediaWiki version 1.13.x :( {{:User:Adam/sig}} 20:06, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
:::At Zeldapendium we use both, ImageMap and the "normal" links - so the visitor can look for the position of an island or it's name. If you just want to look for an island and don't know where it is, the image map without any names is really unhandy --[[User:Pascal|Pascal]] 22:24, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
==Majora's Mask Images==
Hey Adam. I've been going through the Wiki and adjusting the unsourced images. I noticed you've uploaded a bunch of Zelda Dungeon's images from the Majora's Mask Walkthrough. That's Awesome! They are almost all 512 × 384 pixels. Do you recall ever finding these types of images from anywhere else other than Zelda Dungeon? Since It's getting a bit annoying looking at my walkthrough to find the image, and then coming back here to make sure its the same image, and then finally putting the tag. If I knew you just got them all from ZD, I could just assume you got them from ZD and it will go a lot smoother. [[User:Mases|Mases]] 07:54, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
:Hi there. I'm pretty sure that all those images came from ZD. Back when I was trawling the web harvesting all the images I could find, your site seemed to be among the most comprehensive, so a lot of the images I uploaded probably cam from there! Unfortunately, I never kept a record of where they were each downloaded from, plus I've since reformatted my machine and lost all the sites I had bookmarked for Zelda images! But yeah, I'd say it's safe to assume that if you recognise an image as your own, it almost certainly is! {{:User:Adam/sig}} 12:49, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
==OOT Images==
I noticed you were adding some OOT images. We recently posted a new walkthrough section of OOT at our site, covering the Gerudo section. http://www.zeldadungeon.net/Zelda05-ocarina-of-time-walkthrough-13.php Take a look at it. If there are some good ones there, feel free too add them. I didn't think the youtube ones were of the best quality. If there are a few [or one or two] good images you see but have slight 'ZD Guide' edits on them, let me know and I'll send you the layer without the ZD stamp. [[User:Mases|Mases]] 09:24, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
:Mases, your new guide is awesome! I'll definitely be making use of one or two images - any chance you'd have a copy of [http://www.zeldadungeon.net/Zelda05/Walkthrough/13/Map_3D_GerudoFortress5_Large.jpg this one] without the icons? {{:User:Adam/sig}} 09:46, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
::Uploaded the image. Not sure exactly where you wanted to place it, but here it is. http://zeldawiki.org/Image:GerudoFortressMap.jpg [[User:Mases|Mases]] 06:09, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
== Re: Glitch Question ==
I suppose we could remove the content, and put a "See Also _Glitches" part on the page. I will talk to Melchizedek (the head of the whole glitch project) to see what he thinks. {{:User:Zien/sig}} 18:15, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
== Interlanguage Links ==
Hi Adam! Any news from the staff board regarding your [[User talk:Pascal#Suggestion|interlanguage link suggestion?]] --[[User:Pascal|Pascal]] 13:51, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
== Image Templates ==
Haven't been ignoring your messages. I've just not been on in a while. But it isn't something that I particularly know how to do, and would like to get some more info on it. I'll check it out before I upload anything else.{{nosig|Dark link01|12:07, January 31, 2009 (UTC)}}
:Quite frankly, I don't see how this is true. You continued to upload images both after the first and second messages. So you could not have been away then. And about doing them, we have given you the link. [[Help:Image Sourcing]]. That tells you exactly how to do it.{{:User:Matt/sig}} 15:36, January 31, 2009 (UTC)
== Mail ==
Hi Adam! Did you receive my e-mail? --[[User:Pascal|Pascal]] 22:38, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
:Hi, and thanks for the reminder as I'd actually missed your reply. I've requested that one of the administrators set up an account for you, and you'll get another email to confirm once it's done ;) {{:User:Adam/sig}} 10:42, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
== Question. ==
I'm not exactly sure how to deal with [http://zeldawiki.org/index.php?title=Timeline_Theories&diff=prev&oldid=124456 this] and the few edits after it. It hasn't come up before. A little help please.{{:User:Matt/sig}} 08:47, February 7, 2009 (UTC)
:After a little digging, I think there's no need to worry about it. [http://zeldawiki.org/index.php?title=Timeline_Theories&diff=110063&oldid=106016 This] gave me a clue, and after checking the guy's [http://www.zeldauniverse.net/forums/members/5340565-lord-insizor-page15.html user profile at ZU] it seems he just changed his name, and updated his theory here to reflect that. But if he'd added an edit summary, it would've saved us both the confusion! {{:User:Adam/sig}} 08:58, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
::Would you mind taking a look at those edits to the Poe article? I'm not exactly sure where to go there.{{:User:Matt/sig}} 21:20, February 13, 2009 (UTC)
:::Looks OK to me; the only major change was the removal of duplicated information from the TP section. I just fixed the header sizes. {{:User:Adam/sig}} 21:35, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
:I was actually referring to the older stuff that Jimbo fixed. Whether we needed to tell Scattergories anything.{{:User:Matt/sig}} 21:47, February 13, 2009 (UTC)
::Yeah, I guess a quick note on multiple edits vs preview wouldn't go amiss... {{:User:Adam/sig}} 21:59, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
== About my uploaded images ==
Check my latest contributions, is that what you've been asking of me? Axio helped me understand, so I'm just checking if that's all I need to do. I'll go through the sites I used later on (as in, actually will - I have to go out right now), and I'll finish crediting the rest of the images.
But yeah, is that right what I'm doing now? [[User:GKANG|GKANG]] 14:33, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
: ahh, I see. I was just really confused since I didn't realize you could edit the actual image page, so I thought I had to fill my article with templates. I've only been a wiki member for a few days, so I'm doing okay minus this hiccup considering the amount of time (: I'll get back to finding all of the other sites I used, and I'll correct the edits for the ZD finds. [[User:GKANG|GKANG]] 01:17, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
===Phantom Hourglass Enemy Gallery===
Axiomist told me that you were working on these guides, but I decided to do one because, well, I wanted to haha. Anyway, I tried to keep it like the other enemy galleries, and I hope it's done alright. I cited all of the images I uploaded, and of course you can change it how you see fit. [[User:GKANG|GKANG]] 08:42, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
:I said Mases was, I think it's been his pet project. Adam was the one I said would be best suited to determine if your image citing is what's being asked of us. Sorry for the confusion.{{:User:Axiomist/sig}} 00:04, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
==Removal From Wiki==
As you may or may not have known. Jason has removed Zelda Dungeon as a supporting site from the Wiki. Check out the secret place for more info. As an active admin who I've worked with a lot during my tenure here at the Wiki, your input would be much appreciated, but I also encourage you to not take my word for it and keep an open mind. [[User:Mases|Mases]] 07:46, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
==Site Images==
Images, such as the screenshots of layouts, or the images of custom images made for a website. I think we should leave those alone for now, until we come to a decision about what to do with them. Right now, I'm in the process of changing the obvious images. (Sprites, Screenshots), and am going to save the more difficult ones so we can handle on an individual basis. [[User:Mases|Mases]] 17:10, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
:Yeah, that's another issue we'll have to discuss. I was trying to remove some of the now incorrectly-categorized stuff from [[:Category:Copyrighted images]]. At the moment there's a manageable amount to check through (about 9 pages), but if we do all the other work first it'll grow into a much less manageable task to root out the stuff that shouldn't be in there. {{:User:Adam/sig}} 17:21, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
== Sorry Adam ==
calling you snobby? Ok, I've got it cleared out. I was thinking about IfIHaveTo, a guy that insists that anything i say is "cow-crap to the bone". Oh, ande sorry for that pointless argument between the iron-steel thing. [[User:Eponasowner|Stalkid]] 18:25, 25 April 2009 (UTC)
:OK, no problem. Thanks for the apology :) {{:User:Adam/sig}} 07:27, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
::Nice to be back.[[User:Eponasowner|Stalkid]] 18:42, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
==Profile page==
You could have at least let me do it... Mind if I change it around for a while till I get it right? Also, that wasn't the pic I was hoping to use. I just did what Steve had set up with his profile. Also, why can't it stay up? If it gets deleted, I'll just change it. Also, the other one is on my navbar. And what do you mean by "fixed-text"? Sorry- I'm still trying to get accumulated around here. Thanks. {{:User:Alter/sig}} 02:28, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
:I just noticed that you're actually using two nearly identical profile pics, with the text in slightly different places. You have two options really; if you're going to use multiple rotating pics, you need to ensure that they're displayed permanently somewhere else also. Or, you could to stick to one profile image, that way it will be used in multiple places and there won't be a problem. Also, it'll be easier to change if you decide you want to. I've changed back what I edited while you decide. (I didn't say "fixed-text", but fixed '''alt'''-text; that is the hidden text displayed when you hover over an image, which at a cursory glance was all I could see being changed by that template) {{:User:Adam/sig}} 07:24, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
::Hey, thanks a mill! I'm on vacation now, so I'll fix it when I get back in a few days. {{:User:Alter/sig}} 22:02, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
== Userboxes and sig font... ==
Hey. I went to your user page and saw your userboxes. I use Internet Explorer and normally when I go to user pages, including my own, the browser will always cut off the userboxes. However it doesn't seem to cut them off at all in your user page, how did you managed to do that? Also I seem to notice that some sigs use different font styles, and I'm also wondering how that is possible as well. Well, thanks. [[User:The Goron Moron|The Goron Moron]] 07:29, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
:Hi there! On the userbox thing, I just checked my userpage in IE7 and the boxes collapsed down like they always have. So actually, I have a question for you; how did ''you'' manage to get IE to work properly, for once? (Also, why would you want to!?) ;)
:For custom signatures, there's a [[Help:Custom Signatures|help page]], as well as a [[:Category:User Signatures|category]] showing all the ones created so far. You can start with something quite basic, such as just changing the overall font an colour, or go for something more complex like multiple links and font styles/colours. Just be sure to stay within the rules shown on the category. Let me know if you have an trouble, and I can give you a hand. {{:User:Adam/sig}} 07:42, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
::Certainly. As for the userboxes, well I did nothing besides simply visit your userpage. Every other page I go to (except the userbox gallery) has the userboxes collapsed down, except yours. [[User:The Goron Moron|The Goron Moron]] 07:46, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
== Screencap requests? ==
I've seen your name attached to a truckload of image edits and updates lately, so I'm guessing you're the go-to guy for this sort of thing. I'm about to re-play through A Link to the Past and I was wondering if you had any screencap requests?
<br>--[[User:Rootbeer277|Rootbeer277]] 00:52, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
:Well, I can think of a few enemies or dungeon traps that we're missing:
:*A decent sprite of the [[Spark]], since the image at the moment is captured from YouTube
:*<s>The wall-mounted cannons found in dungeons</s>
:*<s>Those boxes in dungeons that shoot fire when swinging your sword</s>[[Image:LttP_fireballstatue.gif]][[Image:LttP_fireswordtrap.gif]] Also got the trap that shoots fireballs at regular intervals, I don't think we have that one.
:*A shot of a floor tile room in action
:With the addition of those (and some images I have for creatures that lack articles at the moment), I'm pretty sure we should have every enemy covered. Some items that we're missing are:
:*<s>[[Green Potion]] (in the cauldron, like [[:File:PotionBlue small.gif|this]])</s>[[image:PotionGreen_small.gif]] I also updated the existing red and blue cauldrons to the larger size, hope that's okay. I think the tiny little images we've got for LttP right now are too small. I'm taking all these screencaps at double size.
:*[[Titan's Mitt]] (we only have the [[:File:Power Glove Sprite LttP.gif|Power Glove]])
:*<s>[[Mushroom]] from the Lost Woods</s>[[Image:LttP_forestmushroom.gif]] Missed my chance to get a clear image without the mist from Link's inventory!
:*<s>[[Magic Jar]]/Decanter</s>[[Image:LttP_magicjar.gif]][[Image:LttP_magicpotion.gif]]
:Also, some important places are missing images; <s>there's no external shot of [[Link's House]] for example,</s> and the image of [[Hyrule Castle]] is terrible. Other than that, any shots of interesting scenes you can think of would be nice, such as fighting Agahnim (showing his attacks in action), using the Medallions, <s>the Flute-playing boy</s>[[image:LttP_fluteboytree.gif]] etc. Thanks for offering to help out, and I hope that's not too much extra work for you :) {{:User:Adam/sig}} 07:46, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
[[Image:LttP_bigcannonball.png‎|right|thumb]][[Image:LttP_linkhouseoutside.gif|right]] You can check the recent changes list to see a few other images I've added. I've got a whole bunch more that would probably come in handy, I could email you a big batch of'em if you want?<br>--[[User:Rootbeer277|Rootbeer277]] 16:53, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
:Hey, great work so far! If you wanted to email me a batch of them that would be great, it's adam <dot> cox82 <at> ntlworld <dot> com {{:User:Adam/sig}} 22:19, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
== Sacred Realm ==
Hey, I saw that you have locked the Sacred Realm page, and I have been helping to rewrite it. There was no edit war, so I do not understand your reasoning for locking it. Can you please explain or unlock it so we can continue work on it? Also can you please explain why you destroyed all the work that was done to the page?? That took quite some time to put together, and I am trying to help improve it so that it contains good information about the Sacred Realm. I'd like the chance to continue work on it if you wouldn't mind. And for the record, none of the information that was added for it was "irrelevant" to me or obviously anyone else, so can you please explain why you feel it was? The history and legends told of the Sacred Realm were included and were not yet complete. I was not yet done pairing down what I'd written or fully adding everything yet either. So I'd appreciate it if you could either explain your action or please remove the block so I can continue work on the article with anyone else who'd like to help. [[User:Link87|Link87]] 12:29, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
:The concerns which were shared by myself and Dany about the information you added are [[Talk:Sacred_Realm|here]]. The reversion was for the reasons I described, and the protection was a preventative measure against the kind of edit warring I've seen you take part in previously.
:Also, please consider what Matt suggested [[User_talk:Link87#Edits|here]], as you caused an edit conflict while I was trying to reply to you. Also, I'm noticing a disturing tendency of yours to respond confrontationally, using inappropriate language which causes bad feeling and escalates situations. Please try to write in a more civil manner to other users and staff. Thanks {{:User:Adam/sig}} 12:44, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
::Um, excuse me, but you have no grounds to do that unless an actual edit war has taken place in this case. And for the record, Ganondorfdude11 and I were able to work things out afterward, and he agreed he was in the wrong. So unless you have real proof of an edit war in this case, you have no grounds to do what you just did really. I have been more than civil in many cases, if you actually read what was said in that instance, I was the one being called names and insulted for much of the conversation. But then again you weren't around to see it I suppose. So to repeat, I'd like you to explain why you felt it was necessary to lock the page and for its continued lock, or please unlock it so work can be completed on it. I am writing other admins to ask about it as well. Nothing wrong has been done here, and I was not done with the page either. You didn't give me a chance to complete work on it. I just had to stop for the day b/c I had to leave my computer for the evening. And for the record, if I am met with cynicism and offensiveness, I will return it. I only ever use it when one employs it against me. So I don't think that's for you to say, and I don't think you've read every single comment that was made toward me that started those instances either. That is beside the point though. The point is you do not have the authority to block a page just b/c of something that happened in the past and was resolved. That's only if an actual edit war has taken place in this instance, and it hasn't. I don't want to fight with you man, I'd like to get along with you, but even you have to admit that what you did here was a bit unnecessary and that bringing up old conflicts is being a bit biased, considering they have nothing to do with the matter at hand. [[User:Link87|Link87]] 12:50, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
::*Preventative measures are valid, regardless of whether you wish to question my motives.
::*The block will automatically expire in 24 hours.
::*If another admin deems my actions excessive, they will take action.
::*You took the article from 600 up to 2800 words. As I stated, my view is that it's impossible for all of the information added to be valid.
::*Please use the 24 hours to cool off and consider the situation from other viewpoints. None of the information is gone (or "destroyed") and can be seletively restored if agreed by consensus. {{:User:Adam/sig}} 13:00, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
:::"Preventitive measures" are not valid if they are not warranted. And keep this in mind: "Contrary to popular belief, being an Admin does not grant you much more power than what is given as a normal member." You cannot lock a page simply b/c you don't like the person that's rewriting it, especially when they've made attempts to negotiate with you. I am perfectly "cool" right now, and I wanted to complete work on the article and even agreed with what Dany was saying, but you didn't give me a chance to finish work on it. I would like to resolve this with you yourself and to have you remove the block so we can continue work on it today rather than tomorrow. I only have so much time each day that I can work on articles here. And none of the reasons you listed above are valid. If I remember correctly, the only justification for locking a page is when there is an edit war over the page or there is damage being done to it, neither of which holds in this case. I don't want to throw any accusations of abuse of powers here, b/c I believe you also want to improve the wiki to the best of standards, but what you did here does not have any grounds for this action nor does it really seem legal under these circumstances. Merely b/c I am the one doing the rewrite does not justify you locking the page b/c you've had arguments with me in the past. I'd like to put that behind us, but if anyone's keeping that from being under the bridge here it's you. I'd like to forgive and forget myself. Just b/c the size of the article increased doesn't mean I was done with it either. You didn't give me a chance to pare it down, which is something I do usually when I'm done adding everything I had in mind, and I didn't even get to do that. You also didn't give me a chance to even respond to the comments on the talk page for the article either, and there is no evidence of any edit war. So I will once again ask that you please unlock the page, for the good of the article. If not, then I am content with asking other admins to do it. But it would be nice and a gesture of good will on your part to do it yourself. If you do not respond to such an overture simply b/c you know you made a blunder in doing what you did, that does not show your actions were in good faith. We all make mistakes and I hold nothing against you at all, but I think many would agree that you were wrong to do what you did, considering you took action without any real justification to support it and gave no opportunity for response, especially given that I agreed with what Dany was saying. This seems more to be a personal vendetta on your part, and as I said I would like to put our past arguments (some of which were started by both you and myself equally) behind us and work together. But if you fail to respond positively to this, I think you only prove my point that the one with the problem here is you. If we could move beyond that and you kindly step out of the way of progress for the page, then we could move forward and collaborate together to make it better. [[User:Link87|Link87]] 13:08, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
::::Thought I'd reply here, as these comments are relevant to the situation rather than the article itself. While I regret that you feel that my actions were unfair or unjustified, I hope you appreciate that that I didn't take any action directly against you, but merely took the steps I saw as necessary to safeguard this particular article. Perhaps my haste in using the default protection reason rather than writing a full explanation, and the lack of any other protection duration than 1 hour or 1 day (now fixed), prevented you from seeing my actual intentions. In any case, I'm pleased that this resulted in what I'd hoped for, namely a productive discussion on the talk page followed by a more considered and constructive approach towards expanding and improving the article.
::::It's often difficult to see one's own edits in an impartial and objective light, which can make the reactions of others seem unreasonable to you, whereas an onlooker with no vested interest may not share that view. Perspective can be difficult to achieve and maintain for all of us. Unfortunately, edits which contain both positive and negative elements always present a dilemma to admins; do we remove them (partially or fully)? Edit or alter them? Flag them for future improvement? The conundrum is compounded when the edits in question are such large and sweeping changes.
::::Anyway, editing theory aside I hope that this episode has been something which we can both learn from, as I have no desire to witness or be drawn into further unnecessary and counter-productive conflict in future. {{:User:Adam/sig}} 19:30, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
:::::I understand where you are coming from man, and no harm done at all. I am glad you were willing to explain your action though, and I understand your position as an admin can present difficult situations at times, b/c we have no way of verbally talking to each other and we are not all always able to be on when other are. For example, it appears you are from England (wondeful country, I have my family's roots there and would love to one day visit Wales to see where my family originated from) and I am from the United States (Illinois is my home, but I'm in Florida for the summer). So our time zone differences can seem to be a source of confusion at times too since perhaps I am able to be on when you aren't or vice versa. But really though Adam, I would like to work with you and befriend you as we go forward and work together on these. And don't be afraid to just ask me if you feel there's been a miscommunication. I will gladly respond in a friendly manner if you just ask me, and I will do the same as well. I look forward to working with you as we go forward, and together we can help not only ourselves but others avoid episodes of confusion as we've both witnessed. Thanks again for understanding and coming back to the table.
:::::On another note, take a look at the [[Sacred Realm]] article now. I'd like to have your input on the [[Talk:Sacred Realm|talk page]] and any suggestions you may have for improvements to its present form. Also your input would be appreciated on the proposed merging of the [[Dark World]] article with the [[Sacred Realm]]. [[User:Link87|Link87]] 20:19, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
== Hello ==
Time for some random editbinging where I change things that say "you" :D - [[User:Cody|Cody]] 08:35, 13 June 2009 (UTC)
== What is Zeldapedia? ==
ummm what is zeldapedia and is this wiki better than it? im new and kinda want to know whitch one is better? [[User:The-Gman!]]
:Zeldapedia is a wiki hosted by [[wikipedia:Wikia|Wikia]]. You can find more information [[Zeldapedia|here]], including a link to the site so you can check it out for yourself. With regard to which is "better", that's a very subjective question and not one that I can give you an answer to. My personal opinion would naturally be in favour of Zelda Wiki.org (that's why I'm here after all!), but you'll need to make your own mind up on which you prefer. My recommendation would be that you create an account there also, edit a little at both sites and get an idea of which feels best to you. {{:User:Adam/sig}} 11:47, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
== Ordon Village Work Deleted!? ==
Hey, I was looking through Recent Changes and I saw you deleted all my work on those pages. I'm a little upset of this because I put a lot of time into that, and I was wondering why you did that. Could you please reply? (Preferably on this page). {{:User:ShellShocker/sig}} 05:58, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
:With the recent removal of OV as a Mastermind site, it doesn't seem appropriate for the site to have a dedicated category here any more. That has historically only been available to Mastermind sites, hence why I removed the category for HTLOZ also. The rank template and its subpages are a slightly different matter, however I believe that the same principle of it being a "Mastermind-only" feature applies (see the current Rank templates [[:Category:Navigation Templates|here]]).
:I had already sought the other staff's opinions on the removal of the category, the response to which was unanimously in favour of removal. I've let everyone on staff know exactly what I've removed and why, in case there is some legitimate argument for any of it to remain. I recongise and appreciate that you've put a lot of effort into creating those pages, so I can understand why you're upset. But I hope you'll understand why, based on the current status of OV, it wasn't appropriate for it to remain. Also, should a policy allowing external sites this privilege be approved by the staff, any pages deemed appropriate can be restored to their previous state. {{:User:Adam/sig}} 06:11, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
:: Ah, I see. Well, I guess the makes sense then. Plus, like you said, you've told the other staffers here, and it makes sense to me now. Sorry for being a little bit angry there, I was just a little upset because I put some time in them. I'm fine now though. Though, since OV is somewhat down as of today, I'm not sure when it is coming back online, since Alexander has left, though he says he was still paying. Anyway, thanks for explaining this all to me in a nice manner, it's appreciated that you also replied fast. Again, thanks for telling me. I just have some questions: If Ordon Village is brought back as a Mastermind, could I bring those pages back, and my second question: After a page has been deleted, can you bring it back as it was before it was deleted (in case OV comes back online and a mastermind)? Hope you can reply. :) {{:User:ShellShocker/sig}} 06:23, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
:::Restoring deleted pages is actually very simple, but can only be performed by admins. Basically, any admin can view a deleted page's revisions in much the same way as an active page's history. They are also able to restore revisions or the entire page, so yes it is possible and very easy to restore deleted content. In fact, the term "deleted" is a little misleading, since it's not actually possible to deleted ''anything'' (pages, images, user accounts...) from the wiki's database. Information is simply made unavailable through the wiki interface, but remains stored on the server. Does that make sense? So yeah, if OV were to return as a Mastermind in future those Rank pages could and would be restored. Oh, and no worries about getting worked up, it's completely understandable and it's not like you were rude about it :)
:::Also, from what I've heard of OV's current status, it would seem that it's in the process of being transferred to new hosting under [[User:Swiftblade|Swiftblade's]] management (control having been handed over to him by Alexander). I'd expect to see the site back up fairly soon, but I couldn't say when. I guess Swiftblade would be able to provide more detail on that, his email address is on his userpage. {{:User:Adam/sig}} 08:14, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
== Tingle's Love Balloon Trip ==
Hello, why did you put a merge tag at each of the three articles on characters from ''Tingle's Love Balloon Trip''? Okay, they are just stubs now, but I have seen even shorter [[:Category:Stubs|stubs]] ([[Grand Fairy|example]]). Or because the game is not released yet? It's less than two weeks ahead, though. --[[User:Grandy02|Grandy02]] 16:09, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
:Hi, I added my reasoning [[Talk:Characters in Color Changing Tingle's Love Balloon Trip|here]]. I'd appreciate any input you may have on it. {{:User:Adam/sig}} 16:44, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
== Thought You Might Know ==
How do you put pictures on your page? Like the Zelda Wii art. That stuff. [[User:Mantandzelink|Mantandzelink]] 16:31, 2 August 2009 (UTC)Mantandzelink
:I'm assuming you want to add them to your user page? Anyway, the procedure is the same for all pages. To add individual images, follow [[Help:Images#Step_Three:_Adding_Images_to_a_Page|this]] (step 3 only, if you're using images already available at the wiki). Otherwise to add a gallery of multiple files, use the following code:

== Wanted to check with you first ==
The history in the [[Eyeball Monster]] page says you redirected it to EyePlant. Is this another issue with the Prima Guide having a different name than the official Nintendo one? I know it made mistakes with at least a few entries. Heroofstuff brought it up and I checked my guide; saw the same thing. {{:User:Axiomist/sig}} 04:01, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
:Nope, I have no information whatsoever on the name. Basically, Eye Plant was first to be created, then Eyeball Monster was created at the start of this year. It was a stub duplicating the info in Eye Plant, so in the absence of any official source for the name back then I simply redirected the new stub to the already established and more generically-named page. Do with it as you will :) {{:User:Adam/sig}} 05:58, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
== Shutting Down my account ==
Seeing as I dont come on here anymore I was wondering if it would be possible to deactivate my account (forever)
All the best --[[User:Zanramon|Zanramon]] 12:40, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
:I can disable your account, as long you're certain you don't want to use it again (it's not reversible once done). Did you want we to do that for you? {{:User:Adam/sig}} 12:59, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
