INK:TALK

The primary purpose of talk pages on Inkipedia are to discuss the wiki's content and improve it based on those discussions. The following are guidelines to use talk pages constructively. If you would like to start a discussion not already mentioned on the talk page, click the + button at the top of the talk page.

Mainspace articles' talk pages

Discussions on the talk pages of mainspace articles are to focus on improving the content of the page, not discuss the page's subject. For example, this would be acceptable:

  I think that we should move Sheldon's quote to the top of the page. -User A
       The quote is a bit too long to fit in comfortably IMO. -User B


Whereas this would not be:

  Ugh! These shoes look ugly as heck! -User C

An exception to this rule is analysis of the subject that can be used in the article. This should not turn into an argument over the subject, merely a discussion of what reflects consensus. Repeated creation of off-topic discussions is punishable with a short ban.

User talk pages

User talk pages should generally be used to discuss the user's edits and communicate your opinions on them. However, make sure to avoid using what could be considered personal attacks towards the user.

Some deviation is allowed from these discussions (such as inviting the user to play a Splatoon match with you). However, these discussions can be kept to a minimum so as not to drown out constructive criticism.

Discord and blogs

The Discord discussion and blogs are intended for more general discussion. Therefore, very few restrictions on topics of discussion exist in these areas as long as they do not violate other policies.
