To Do's

  • Quite a few articles, i.e. most articles, do not have enough or any sources. This is quickly becoming unacceptable. We encourage members to locate and add sources to these articles. A list of articles in need of sources can be found at: Articles lacking sources. That list is by no means complete. There are countless other articles that need sources.

Pieces of Heart are helpful in the Zelda universe, and they're helpful at Zelda Wiki.org. Here's a useful hint from the archive:

The correct format for adding links to game titles from the Legend of Zelda series is using a piped link to the game's article, but showing the short version of the title and written in italics. For example you'd have to type this:
''[[The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker|The Wind Waker]]''
to display the correct link like this:
The Wind Waker

You might thing that seems like a lot of hard work, and you'd be right! So why not use a nifty shortcut? Templates have been set up enabling you to use the game's abbreviated initials to make the same link, so all you'd need to type in this example is:
{{subst:TWW}}
Once you save the page, this will be automatically replaced with the long-winded link above! You can check the full list of game article links here, grouped under *. Adam [ talk ] 18:30, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

We also have a number of screenshots with large chunks of black around them which need to be cropped down to just the image itself.

You may do so on the image request page.
