FAQ[edit | edit source]

Why is Zelda Wiki moving to Gamepedia?
Gamepedia, owned by Curse Media, is the largest collection of gaming-related wikis on the web. Being part of Gamepedia will help Zelda Wiki provide the best tools and support to our users, as well as the best possible experience from a hosting perspective.


How will the move process affect the wiki?
Starting around 10:30am EST/7:30am PST on March 8th, the original Zelda Wiki will be put into read-only mode. Once the database has been fully transferred to the new site at http://zelda.gamepedia.com, users will be redirected. This process is expected to take 4-5 hours, during which time all information will be accessible, but no edits can be made to the wiki.


What will happen to my Zelda Wiki account?
You Zelda Wiki account will no longer be able to be used to log into the wiki. You will need to register a new account through Gamepedia in order to log into the wiki after the move is complete.


How can I claim my old edits from before the move?
Gamepedia staff will be helping to connect old edit histories with new accounts. Once you have registered a new account through Gamepedia, you can use this form to submit your two account names to be merged. Merge requests will be processed on a weekly basis until the end of March. After that date, you will need to visit Gamepedia Support and submit a ticket including your old Zeldawiki.org username and your new Curse/Gamepedia username. Your account does not need to be merged to continue editing. Your old edits simply will not yet be "credited" to the proper account.


My old username isn't available!
Our team is happy to explore re-naming Curse accounts where possible. Please visit Gamepedia Support and submit a ticket including your current username and your desired username. Please note, we cannot guarantee the availability of any usernames. Please submit a request only after merging your old edits from Zeldawiki.org.
