    99% sure this email was spam/phishing email but I'd like to know if that website is legit.

    Well it was a website I've never been to before, it offered me a username but no password in the email, and was expecting me to go there and log in... providing the website with one of my passwords. So it isn't too great a stretch to think that it was a phishing email.

    I haven't gotten any email like this. But I have looked at ZeldaClassic.net and it looks pretty nice.
    I'm guessing we were not supposed go to it yet huh?

    Heh, it actually does look pretty nice. Though the black background and Harry Potter-esque font don't exactly scream "Zelda"...
    I thought the random question asked who the final boss of Final Fantasy 1 was. No wonder that registration didn't take!

    Yeah... The font looks pretty out of place. It really needs to be changed where it won't look like a " Harry Potter-esque font", lol.

    Here's a quote of the email:
    Hello franpa,


    You have been added as a User to zeldaclassic by an Administrator.

    This email contains your username and password to log in to http://zeldaclassic.net/

    Username: franpa
    Password:


    Please do not respond to this message as it is automatically generated and is for information purposes only.
    Note the blank password. Oh and the email suffers from a "spf=temperror" causing Hotmail to flag the email as suspicious/place it in Junk.
