Staff

Legends of Zelda was founded by davogones, and Zelda Legends was founded by Khuffie. For years, both of us were able to run the site by ourselves. But recently, being swamped with schoolwork and such, we've had less time to run the site. So, we have decided to start accepting official staff members.

The current staff members are listed below. If you need to contact us, make sure you review the information below and contact the right person. This will allow us to help you faster. If you're not sure who to contact, go to the Contact page.

If you are interested in joining the staff, please understand that we're accepting people on a very limited basis right now. We are looking for people that we've known for a long time and trust. A staff member should be a hard worker, enthusiastic about Zelda, and have good judgement. It is not necessary to know anything about HTML, design, or programming, although these help a great deal. If you are interested in joining, please contact Veteran.

Real Name: Deb

Former Responsibilities: Yar! I be in charge of the mighty Links to this here site....send me a good treasure hunt or ye be walking the plank! Yarrrr....
About: Lets put it this way - I'm older than alot of people on this site. (Ok so I'm 25 - big deal). I've been a Zelda fan since the first Zelda came out (and I'm not talking about closets here). I'm very outspoken, open-minded, friendly and I like meeting new people. I love making people laugh, I enjoy making others smile. I have a stuffed animal armadillo (not real!) from Dallas, TX where I attend A-Kon; a 3 day convention for all things anime and more. I love to Travel. I've travelled all over North America I love Louisiana. It's so lush and pretty and hot. I love it. I've got really great friends down there. I love the Muppets. Kermit is my favorite for reasons being that he wants everyone to have a little spotlight for them - not just him. And it's cool to be different.

Former Responsibilities: Corresponding with the emulation page. General Maintance. Random updates/edits Being funny:-p
About: I have an AS in Computing, Electronics, and Networking Technologies and am currently working on a BA in Systems Administration. I am working as a tech at a computer store. My interest in computers is what helped me get involved in creating my own Zelda site, which eventually died, and I was offered a position here. My first experience with Zelda was Link's Awakening, which was the first Zelda game I owned. I played A Link to the Past at a friends house. I have at the very least played all the official Games, but have not yet completed all of them

About: I'm a 16 year old high school student that plays video games, guitar, listens to music, and tries to keep the Fan Art gallery from running amuck.

About: Mountain guy is turning into a graphic designer. Right now I'm just a student who gets the rare commission, but I do get the rare job. I do a lot of open source work and design (probably the reason I'm so poor).

Real Name: Sarah Schowengerdt

Former Responsibilities: Fan Fiction, Ongoing Stories, Lexicon, Bestiary
About: I'm a junior in high school in Kansas, (a blank slate for all sorts of imaginings!). I'm known for my art, and am at the moment doing a Zelda fancomic called Project Nayru ( lozpngf.smackjeeves.com ). I enjoy acting and have been known to whip out my many strange voices by reading the subtitles in Zelda games. Good times. ^^ When I graduate, I'm thinking of going to study animation or comics for a couple years, and perhaps having a side job as a historical reinactor. XD Nah, I don't know yet. ^^;;

About: Achitka is a loon...but that's okay it's one of her more endearing qualities. She is sleepy and needs her nap, but that hasn't worked out in a while so she's a bit cranky. She lives on pocky and Dunkin Donuts coffee - cause it's better than starbucks...long live the arabica bean!
The Missing Link
Guest Contributor
Real Name: Dave
Location: New Hyrule, Washington
Former Responsibilities: Making random articles, editorials, and the occasional timeline controversy!
About: I first joined the Zelda community in late 2000, took over The Grand Adventures in mid-2001, started up ZeldaBlog in late 2005, and began the Annual Zelda Puzzle Challenge in 2007. But as for the side of TML that most people don't see? I was born in 1980 in the great state of Ohio where I grew up for most of my life. I used to play xylophone in the band, used to speak Spanish, and have visited seven countries outside the US. Having been a geek and a nerd most of my life, I eventually graduated in 2005 with an MS in Computer Science and BS in Computational Mathematics. I now work for a well-known gaming company (sorry, folks, not Nintendo) as a programmer. However, more than anything, I actually enjoy writing fanfiction, playing games, chatting with other geeky friends, and learning Japanese.

Melora
Guest Contributor
Real Name: Melora works well enough
Location: Oregon, USA
Former Responsibilities: Adding official art and goodies.
About: I love to draw, even though I find it frustrating. I also love to take in, or at least provide help for, animals of all sorts- and when I'm not doing either of those things, I'm usually playing games or lurking around my internet haunts. I was born in 1979 in Arkansas (of all places.) Since I was always a gamer it's no surprise that I got hooked on the original Legend of Zelda. Link to the Past is my favorite game of the series though, and when I got the strategy guide for it, I fell in love with the art. But... I lost the guide when I was young, and later when I went looking on the web for the art that was in it, I started to realize that there was a lack of sites for the original 4 games. So I started my own site, History of Hyrule, and joined the community. I made a lot of great friends, but eventually had to take my site down due to my health. That brings us up-to-date: Now I just want to hang out and help out where I can!
Jumbie
Japanese translator
Real Name:
Location:
Former Responsibilities: I'll create language comparisons (Japanese-English) for the in-game texts of TP, OoT, and FSA. Others may follow.
About: I'm a student of Spanish and English. As for Zelda, I'm of the ALttP/OoT generation. I wasn't aware of the community until 2005 when I sought help in a FAQ and by chance noticed the timelining business. Since then, I educated myself through this site to become a timeline theorist. Recently I discovered that I'm able to make sense of Japanese, so I put that to use by starting a translation of TP's Japanese version, inspired by the existing comparisons on ZL.

About: I have been a member of various Zelda communities since 2003, starting with ZeldaUniverse, then ZeldaLegends, and now also ZeldaInformer.
