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)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]

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)Reply[reply]

We could change it to "PAL" Mockypocky (talk) 13:09, 28 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think Europe would be best, as the UK no longer uses PAL either Ezee03 (talk) 17:35, 28 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]
i agree we should use europe most wiki use this β€”Preceding unsigned comment added by JackZone88 01:40, 6 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
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)Reply[reply]

Fandom Fork

An unmerger!? Zeldapedia is back? Well it was always a better name I must confess. What lead to it (if I must confess the original merge always perturbed me just a bit, but I had already decided to leave by then and didn't want to butt in)? First think you'll need to do is ditch this blue colour scheme and go back to the gold green classic. And if you're taking input from an old guard like me, I'd really prefer if pages were formatted by release order rather than that silly timeline nonsense. This isn't an internal chronicle, it's an encyclopedia of the games as games. Better to find information by the order in which it was actually created in. At least that's my opinion. I don't have any real intention to contribute, but am I able to get my old account back? I tried logging in with my original credentials and it didn't take.

This isn't an image board or a Facebook thread so there's no need to bump. We're working on make sure all edits are accounted for so rest assured that we'll get to it. There's a guide for reclaiming your account, our articles are already in release order, and we're exploring the option to add themes but you should be able to create your own custom CSS for yourself if you want something specific. Many of us have used this blue for over a decade so we're not likely to outright ditch it. TriforceTony (talk) 17:13, 23 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hmm. I've followed the guidlines, but no success. It generated a username and password, which I've saved, but login just fails saying incorrect user name or password. I've tried both ways, having the @login on both the username and the password. Old Oni (talk) 06:23, 24 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If you are trying to merge your account from the Zeldapedia Archive, it won't work. This is only for accounts on Zelda Wiki, and if you haven't made any edits to that wiki then it won't let you migrate your account because there is nothing to migrate. Zeldapedia hasn't been reopened and is still an archive on it's old URL on Fandom. However, if the migration isn't working because of a different problem, I could help you with migrating your account if you join our Discord server. If you're not able to join the Discord, then you many post a message here describing your problem and I can help you further.
Also, this is a temporary name, we're planning on renaming back to Zelda Wiki once we get some things figured out with Fandom. We won't be ditching the blue color scheme anytime soon, but the only thing that is planned on being changed from the original Zelda Wiki is our logo. Currently we're using a prototype, but a new design will be coming in the future. β€” 𝐌𝐚𝐠𝐒𝐜𝐌𝐚𝐬𝐨𝐧𝟏𝟎𝟎𝟎 (𝐭𝐚π₯𝐀) 04:13, 25 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


At the bottom of the page where it shows the other wikis within NIWA, i don't see Wikirby, the kirby series wiki. can someone add it? Eligames2009 (talk) 00:02, 22 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

WiKirby is there, third from the last. I'll admit the Warp Star isn't super visually indicative of Kirby, though - maybe it should be swapped out for File:WKlogo.png in the NIWA Navigation template. – JumbledLimes (talk/contribs) 00:54, 22 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

On This Day...

I'm confused about the "on this day" section. Is it supposed to tell you what happened on this exact day this year, or is it telling you what happened on previous April 21sts?? And if the first explanation is true, then why is it always empty, even on important days? SuperBowser64 (talk) 17:18, 21 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Your second explanation is correct. It usually says something like "On this day, 12 years ago..." for example. If there's any important dates in the past that haven't been filled in, it's probably because they haven't been added to Data:On This Day yet. β€” 𝐌𝐚𝐠𝐒𝐜𝐌𝐚𝐬𝐨𝐧𝟏𝟎𝟎𝟎 (𝐭𝐚π₯𝐀) 21:13, 21 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
