Staff at Zelda Informer has come and gone, but through the years, this site has seen a myriad of intelligent and creative contributors. Minds from all around the world came together to form what you see here today, and while the site has expanded well beyond its original state from the early days of its creators, some of their souls still stalk Zelda Informer’s murky depths. It is said that at night you can still hear them touch themselves while playing Majora’s Mask.

Nathanial made his way to Zelda Informer in 2008 upon the merger with his site, AbsoluteZelda. Since then, he has taken on the role of the webmaster, and has pushed the site to the new heights that it has reached today, albeit not without what some would call “moments of controversy.”
As the mind behind the “Zelda Informer Plus” model, our current “Zelda + Nintendo” approach, he has brought many ideas to the table in terms of Zelda Informer’s expansion as a fansite, as well as posting news, editorials, and thinking about the site’s future direction.

“Ain’t got nuthin’ to lose but them goddamn Bourgeoisie Blues…”
Dennis is the mysterious founding staff member, always lurking around the in shadows, never really seen or noticed. But we would certainly notice if he stopped working.
Dennis handles the server, as well as the programming and site hosting work—to put it simply, all of the fun stuff that makes the rest of the staff jealous. When he posts on the main site, you know something big is happening.

“You may now kiss the ring”
Alongside Dennis, Damir is one of the two surviving staff members from the very early days of Zelda Informer. He started off as a writer for the Bombers team, his application to which originally lead him to Dennis and Phil—two of the site’s founding members—and the rest is history.
Unlike most staff members, his role greatly changed over the years. Damir has gone from posting news, to graphic work, all the way to back-end site maintenance. His activity is in constant flux due to real-life issues, but he is a reliable and ever-present asset in times of dire need.
