Well, this is a little minor, but could potentially throw some off if not reworded; On this page of the site: http://www.zeldadungeon.net/Zelda03-a-link-to-the-past-heart-pieces.php
for heart piece #7, it says "West of the Sanctuary are a few rocks. Pick up the big one and walk down the staircase..."
It would be more accurately worded as "West of the Sanctuary is a pile of rocks. Bash into it with the Pegasus Boots and walk down the staircase..."
You can get this piece of heart before you have the power glove, and you cannot lift piles of rocks ever anyway in the game. They're for bashing into only.

It's like the running dude says: "Anyway, because you have such quick feet, it might be a good idea to run and bash into many things..."

I would however like to applaud the pieces of heart page overall, to whoever made it. The side by side maps are a very handy addition, and every piece of heart has a still of the scene. I like the page very much so.

I like the whole "Other Zelda Games" page idea. I want to get all of the zelda games, and i would love to have even a few paragraphs here at zelda dungeon devoted to each spinoff.

I think your game guides are great, but I have a suggestion for an improvement in the "Biggoron Sword Trading Sequence" guide. The guide advices the player to go through Kakariko village and go up the mountain trail to deliver the Biggoron Eye Drops, however, this route means the player does not have much room for error time-wise.

When doing this quest I chose to ride Epona to Kokiri Village, go into the Lost Woods and enter Goron City (the passage from there to the Death Mountain Crater has to be open, of course) go from there to the Death Mountain Crater, follow the passage to the right, smash the rock on the ledge (if you haven't already, this means you have to have the hammer) jump across to the other ledge and go up the ladder and through the passage to the top of Death Mountain. When I took this route I had a 1 minute and 20 seconds to spare when I delivered the eye drops.

An alternative way to go is to go by the warp pad (using the Hookshot) and take the bean ride to the top of the mountain and go through the passage. Both are immensely time-saving when doing this quest.

For the both of you! Any suggestion for walkthroughs and guides, you can go to our Contact Page and leave a message there. This will guaranteed that the walkthrough and guide writers will get it and fix it. They usually aren't very active on the forums.


Umm, I am not sure if this should go here, but what about a subsection inside the fourm games for RPGs? Considering how many there is, it seems plauable in my eyes.
RPG's do go in the game section. As for a sub section, we can may consider it.


Thanks for all the suggestions!

Would it be possible to put two sub-sections in the Fan Works section?
One sub-section for works in text form such as fan fics, songs, and poems,
the other for works that are drawn, any other kind of picture, and movies or animations

Umm...this is just something I've noticed recently, but when I use Internet Explorer and I go to log in, I don't see the 'Remember Me?' option. And since I can't check the box, it has me having to log back in every few minutes when sitting idle while chatting in the SB. But when I go to Mozilla Firefox and go to log in, I see the 'Remember me?' box there. I don't know why it disappeared for on IE, but it's been that way for at least a day now.

That could be a possibility if you use an Internet Explorer less then version 8. Neverless, I'll get that fixed as soon as possible. Thanks for the notification.

This probably undos all of you hard work, but.... Maybe youguys should remove the REP system. All it does is make people power hungry and use their power negitivly to influence others.
I completely disagree with the statement you have made Ember, you may believe that it makes people power hungry, but I don't see how. Why would having more rep make someone power hungry? Someone with high rep doesn't gain any powers from having high rep, they just gain more bars as they go along. The only thing on the forums here that will cause people to become power hungry is if they gain a position as a mod, and then want to become a super mod just so they can have the power, and to be fair, no mod here is doing that (although Axle wants to become a Super Mod, I understand his reasoning behind doing so, and I agree).

The rep system here also has several uses that you probably have never thought about to. Firstly, there is a reason that is only known by the Hylian Knight's and higher (I won't state the reason either).

The final few uses are linked. The rep system helps to tell a member whether their posting is on track or if it is rather lacklustre. If you take a look at all the members who have high rep, you'd probably notice and agree that they are some of the best posters on the forum (I'm not kissing my own behind here by the way). Especially when you see the likes of MrMosley, Zeruda, Shadsie, Ver-go-a-go-go, ChargeWithSword and many others, who are all excellent posters. Then you go to the lower end and you will see the members that all usually have the lacklustre posts around the forums. So by giving good rep, we encourage members to keep up the good posting. Whereas by giving bad rep, we are telling someone that they need to improve their posting, as it's not very good quality. Thus, by using the rep system, we are improving the forums little by little. If you want an example, Master Kokiri is one. He used to be considered a little bit spammy by some members around the forums. However, he's now a great poster and I enjoy talking to him in the shoutbox.

Personally, I want to see some changes in the Forum games section. In my opinion, a Forum Games section on a Zelda site (no matter how unrelated to the rest of the forum it is meant to be) should at least have a majority of it's threads revolve around or be linked to, in some way or another, the Legend of Zelda series. I'm sure that last time I checked through most of the threads, that a majority of them are just random threads with no connections to Zelda at all. I don't mind the fact that some theads aren't, because some are extremely good games and wouldn't work when you involved Zelda in the mix that well, such a Mafia or some of the RPG's around there.

I just think that it's quite sad that a Legend of Zelda forum has a 6th of it's post come from threads that are totally unrelated to Zelda, and that it's the second biggest forum section on the site, only beaten by the World of Zelda section, which predates the Forum Games by almost 9 years (I think anyway) and is only just larger than it.

I'd just like to see the Forum Games section become more Zelda based and have at least a majority of the threads in there related to Zelda. I just think that too many members come to the site just for the forum games, as there are several that have participated in the Forum Games section hugely, but have so little to do with the rest of the forum. I'd like to see that change.

I'd like to see the Forum Games section removed. They have some different rules from the other forums, but they are very rarely enforced. And I've had arguements about it with some of the other moderators in Skype, but none of them actually moderate the forum and can't really talk. I've seen members break almost all the rules there and the other moderators say "Aww, they're fine" and they break the rule over and over and over. There are some members that have their recent posts page filled 3 or 4 pages down with just forum games. It really encourages members to not post outside there and when they do, they tend to be very bad posts as they get used to the lenient posting in the forum games section and do so outside of the forum games.

If we don't remove the forum games section, I'd at least like it more heavily moderated, or more moderators posted. On such a horrible and embarrassing part of our forums, only one moderator isn't close to enough.

The Forum Games section is very popular and I don't think that just based on its content it should be removed. It is a sub-forum, so its not even out in the open for everyone to notice so easily. It is also a place where not just regular members go to post, but I have seen many times that even our forum staff post in there. With that said, I don't think its necessary at all to remove something from the forums that the majority of the people here enjoy. The fact that the section doesn't attribute to user post counts is also a big reason that its not as harmful as people seem to think. This is why the section is also not heavily moderated. Unless someone is posting porn in there or something inappropriate, then there's basically no rules broken. Since each thread would act as its own game, it would have its own rules and if the thread abides by the most basic of forum rules then its fine with me. Any problems within the section can be reported as posts or whatever if the situation is bad enough.

I do think that possibly regulating the Forum Games section's use though might be a good idea. Though I support that some people use the section a lot, I do not support that some people only come here for it. I'll try to come up with a way to maybe limit its access to certain users so that posting elsewhere will be encouraged. But that will come in time.

I definitely agree with this. Most other forums keep Lit and Visuals in seperate sub forums under fan works and it keeps things very nice and organized. It works quite well on other forums, and what with the large amount of fanfiction here, I think it would be a good to implement it.

In addition, ZD is a little unique in this department, as we have a lot of "member insert" threads and a lot of threads that are "sign ups" or conceptual preparations for a work. I think threads such as those should also get a sub section (maybe entitled "Sign Ups and Collaborations") simply because they aren't for the purpose of posting work; they're prepping for a work that hasn't actually materialized yet.

That should be fixed. If it doesn't look right or if you have problems. Please give inform us! Thanks for informing us of that little problem!
