"14-year-olds-trying-to-phrase-things-informatively-and-professionally" writing style that pervades the lower tier of fan wikis
My favourite quirk of that writing style in how videogame wikis always refer to the player character as "you" as if writing a walkthrough. It's so adorable!

I like Zelda Wiki however. Looks nice and has lots of high quality images. It uses footnotes and is fairly complete. I have no idea what the community is like but as a encyclopedia I'd say its pretty good.

I usually find Zelda Wiki to be a bit more comprehensive that Zeldapedia, but I will use either, and, if it's a topic I'm interested in, I'll look at them both just to get a more rounded viewpoint.

Anyways, I checked out more of Zelda Wiki and it does seem to be more well-phrased so I'll just to stick using that from now on. It'd be nice if they developed a mobile version of the site, though. Then I could browse Zelda facts on the go.

What I mean is the navigation on both of the wikis is horrible, its sometimes hard to find what you're looking for.
I think zelda wiki has much better navigation, specaily on the homepage.
This is not the fault of the writers of the wikis, its the wiki system itself, its hard to find stuff on it, even though it has a lot of information.
