Meh. Just feels a little weird to me.

The First one I linked has a more "professional" feel.

Lots of game series have two wikis. Tekken has two of them for example.

KingMarth64's is better.

I don't know which one he's involved with though (maybe both?).

First link is better, since it provides more info.

Probably for the same reason there are two Zelda wikis.

I use SF :|
But yeah, I think Touhou has two main ones. Mtg also has two. If I really need to decide which one to use consistently, I'll just pull the page on an identical subject and see which one has better content.

I'd say the opposite was true...

I'm not directly involved in either wiki, but AFAIK FE Wiki (without the "a") was started because they wanted to create a wiki that's independent from the Wikia organisation.

...And as other people have mentioned, it's not too weird to have more than one wiki and/or site. Competition and variety is always nice : P

Differing opinions on the proper ordering of the Zelda timeline?

I agree that the first link has more detail, and it does seem more professional in my opinion. I guess someone must have felt the need to make a new one.
Although I don't see why they would need to, seeing as the first one is great.
