:: Other Important Information ::
As you make your way around the forums, you may notice some members with other banners which haven't been mentioned above. While some may be custom made and put into their CR, these are the other official banners.
Community Coordinators are members who are currently involved the organization and running of community based projects such as
. These members only hold this banner as long as they are involved in the project, it is a temporary status.
B.A. Council members are in charge of character approval and other various tasks in the Battle Arena area
Patrons are members that have generously given money to support
Zelda Wiki.org Contributors are members that have made a significant contribution (1,000+ edits) to the ZeldaWiki.
Retired staff are members who have served as staff in the past, and we thank them for all their hard work!
Many new members have a hard time finding their way arounf the forums, using the forums, and/or getting to know the rules. With that in mind the adoption system was created. It allows older, more experienced members to guide new members through these things.
If you feel you're having a hard time with the forums, go to
the Adoption Lodge
and follow the instructions in the opening post.
Once you become more experienced and have met some certain requirements, you too can become an adopter and help out new members. For more information see the OP of the Lodge.
(commonly refered to as the BA) is where RPG-style battles take place.
In order to participate in the Battle Arena, you must submit a character in the
Characters and Resources
forum, where it will be (dis)approved by one of the BA council. When submitting a character, be sure to follow the
character information format
. In addition, if you want to participate on story-driven roleplaying, seek the
Virtual Character Reality

If you want a more laid-back place for the discussion of stuff,

can be found here
. Please keep in mind that the topic is rarely Zelda.
Some boards around
are not visible to everyone. These are known as restricted boards.
These boards become accessible to certain user groups. For example, being in a clan will allow you to see that clan's board.
Generally speaking, if you have access to one af these boards, it should be considered confidential. They are restricted for a reason, so that not everyone can see and read them.
Some members joke about a random board that becomes visible now and then. There's no such board so don't waste your time looking for it.
Rules and Guidelines
forums have a set of rules and regulations which members must follow. Failure to do so will result in warnings and infractions, which in turn can lead to a ban.
The rules are enforced by moderators. This does not mean they are
the rules though. If you have a problem with a moderator's action, or think that soemthing they did was unfair, you are welcome to bring it up with them, or another mod in private. However, do it in a polite and respectful manner. Just because you disagree with them does not mean you are right, or the decision will be changed.
The rules can be found
, or under the "Information" tab on the menu bar at the top of the page.
Remember that the rules are up to the interpritation of the mods. Not every mod in every section will interprit them the same way. You will have to get a feel for each mod's, and section's style because they will all have different standards.
