Octarian Domes

Should we add a page on the Octarian Domes? I'm not sure whether or not it would be needed other than giving descriptions to the different variants in Splatoon 2 and the Octo Expansion. Any ideas? ZBroadcast (talk) 9:05 9 September, 2018

yeah we should make one with 3 sections one for octo valley one for octo canyon and one for shifty station. I can write the page but i don't know how to add images<span style="font-family:Splatoon2>[[User:Zombietoon|Zombietoon]]([[Usertalk:Zombietoon|Zombietoon]])</span> (talk) 12:45, 11 January 2020 (UTC)

I'm thinking.... why not just add the page (i'm agreeing with Zombietoon here) and change shifty station to deepsea metro (octo expansion)? It would be a little easier if we did that. ToadLover9001 (talk) 21:28, 27 May 2020 (UTC)ToadLover9001

how to...?

um im kinda jealous about how everybody has a, like special color to their username. I don't know how can someone plz tell meCallieplayz279 (talk) 21:13, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

If you mean the green color, all you have to do is create your userpage! Just click your nick, click create and type anything you want! FunPL (talk) 05:50, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

How do u change the font of my username can someone tell me?Calamarie (talk) 15:14, 25 October 2019 (UTC)

Sorry for the late reply, you can do that by changing your signature in preferences (New signature field)

You can use this template:

<span style="font-family:Splatoon">[[User:YourUsername|YourUsername]] ([[User talk:YourUsername|YourUsername]])</span>

YourUsername (YourUsername)

<span style="font-family:Splatoon2">[[User:YourUsername|YourUsername]] ([[User talk:YourUsername|YourUsername]])</span>

YourUsername (YourUsername)

Just change YourUsername to Calamarie and make sure to check the box that says Treat signature as wikitext (without an automatic link) FunPL (talk) 15:08, 30 October 2019 (UTC)

When I try to paste a very long string in to the signature field, it doesn’t get the whole string in, I’m trying to paste the following:
[[File:Stop x nuvola.png|25px|link=]] [[User:InklingFixer|<span style="color:deeppink;text-shadow:purple 0px 0px 3px">InklingFixer</span>]] [[User talk:InklingFixer|<span style="color:limegreen;text-shadow:green 0px 0px 3px;font-size:12pt"><sup>talk</sup></span>]] [[File:Stop x nuvola.png|25px|link=]]
Stop x nuvola.png InklingFixer talk Stop x nuvola.png
How do people get such long strings without this problem?—Stop x nuvola.png Inkling Fixer (talk) Stop x nuvola.png 04:01, 6 December 2019 (UTC)
If the string of characters has a bug where it won’t all get in to the text box, create a user template with the name: User:YourUsername/Sig. Replace “YourUsername” with your username. Paste the signature into the user template and then go to preferences and change your signature to the following: {{User:YourUsername/Sig}}. Check out User:InklingPro/Sig for an example.

Video Upload Help

On the Modes page, there is a section that I made myself that features 2 videos of unused modes explanations. Unfortunately, one of the videos has been removed from Youtube, and the only other suitable one is from the same content maker as the other video, and Inkipedia dosen't seem to like it when I put 2 videos by the same maker onto 1 page (one video gets removed). Can anyone help? --S2 Icon Inkling Squid Green.png Splatana talk contribs S2 Icon Inkling Squid Pink.png 17:50, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

What do you mean that the video gets removed? Can you create an example page showing it? FunPL (talk) 15:08, 30 October 2019 (UTC)
Dosen't matter, the issue fixed itself. Sorry!--S2 Icon Inkling Squid Green.png Splatana talk contribs S2 Icon Inkling Squid Pink.png 12:22, 6 November 2019 (UTC)

New licenses

I’ve added a new CC-BY-NC-3.0 license to Inkipedia. But the license doesn’t appear on the upload file page. Could an administrator add the license to the upload file page? InklingPRO Error (pro talk) 23:31, 22 December 2019 (UTC)

Splatoon 2 Mission Icons

Does anyone know how to rip the Splatoon 2 Octo Canyon Level Icons? I'm not exactly capable at ripping sprites or models from games but was wondering if someone else could? ZBroadcast (talk) 7:54, 27 December 2019 (UTC)

If you mean mem cakes, go here
If you mean level number icons, I'm 99% sure that those aren't images and are simple text with styling in the layout. I'll check soon how it looks like in the game files.

Sorry, I meant like this but the ones for Splatoon 2. Each Octo Canyon level has these. Again sorry about the confusion. 😖 ZBroadcast (talk) 2:43, 27 December 2019 (UTC)
Ah, woops. It's not your fault, I don't know why I assumed that you meant Octo Expansion. Here are the files: External On wiki. Freshly ripped FunPL (talk) 11:09, 28 December 2019 (UTC)

So, on the Salmon Run page it mentions that during random rare rotations: "special music plays". I'm wondering, which track is this special music? If it's not a track in Squidbeats 2, then we should at least have an audio file of it. S2 Icon Inkling Squid Green.png Splatana talk contribs S2 Icon Inkling Squid Pink.png 10:03, 13 January 2020 (UTC)

Playing a Random Rare rotation the other day, it appears to just be Frantic Aspic. I'll modify that statement accordingly. ShinyCelesteela (talk) 11:26, 13 January 2020 (UTC)

Mushroom Mountain vs. Bamboo Shoot Village Splatfest Names

There is an official source (The Art of Splatoon 2) that names at least the Splatoon version of this Splatfest with the products' Western names, as "Chocorooms vs. Chococones". Is this enough to warrant the renaming of these fests on the wiki? -DJParticle (talk) 10:56, 22 January 2020 (UTC)

If it is an official source then yeah I guess so


I don't know what they are, I don't know how to earn them, and even if I did, I don't know how to put them on my page. Can someone help me? Zombietoon (talk) 12:32, 26 January 2020 (UTC)

Barnsquids were awards that were given to editors and could be displayed on their user page. Barnsquids as an award have been discontinued, but you can still add them to your user page. Just go to this page and follow the instructions. S2 Icon Inkling Squid Green.png Splatana talk contribs S2 Icon Inkling Squid Pink.png 08:41, 27 January 2020 (UTC)

Can somebody make a barnsquid for team Ketchup and one for team Mayo? redpanda0310 (talk) 16:35, 7 May 2020 (UTC)

Inkipedia Newsline

So I was flicking through the old Ink Pump archives and found a post about something called "Inkipedia Newsline". It seemed to have been broadly accepted by everyone as a good idea, but was never implemented. So, now that the wiki is settling down and waiting for Splatoon 3, could we add it? ( The original post about it is on the 7th Ink Pump archive page and is called "Inkipedia World") S2 Icon Inkling Squid Green.png Splatana talk contribs S2 Icon Inkling Squid Pink.png 08:53, 27 January 2020 (UTC)

Personally, I think this would be an excellent idea that I would be more than willing to contribute to. The issue would be getting a full team of people to do the same every month, and getting a big enough readership to make it worthwhile... GloverMist (talk) 12:17, 27 January 2020 (UTC)
Same goes for me as GloverMist. I'd love using this as an opportunity to flex my creative writing skills, and also I think it could be a good way to hold wiki-wide events (Inkipedia Splatfests, anyone?) but it really is just a matter of getting enough people on-board to actually make this happen, and from experience, Inkipedia isn't the most active wiki. But if enough people are up for it, then count me on board for sure! ShinyCelesteela (talk) 21:54, 28 January 2020 (UTC)
We could put up a project on the project page for staff recruitment and put an article in the news section of the home page, though I'll need to get permission for both ideas.S2 Icon Inkling Squid Green.png Splatana talk contribs S2 Icon Inkling Squid Pink.png 09:06, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
I think that's an inkredible idea! Honestly wouldn't mind making comics on it if possible. 😉 ZBroadcast (talk) 19:32, 10 February 2020 (UTC)

Yeah, i think making a recruit page is the way to go. Just be sure to make it a Special page.

I think that is a really good idea and I am on board. If you make a symbol I might be able to create a barn squid. £|_@|\/|€1232 (talk) 13:46, 11 February 2020 (UTC)

So I was just wondering if anyone happens to have a render of a MALE AGENT 8. There seems to be a female Agent 8 ( my preferred version of agent 8 ) on this wiki, I checked the Fandom wiki...... OH! & google images......(sigh) thanks for reading

   -Ashton DrummondAshtonCorp06 (talk) 09:49, 27 February 2020 (UTC)

Define “render”. £|_@|\/|1232S2 Weapon Main Hero Roller Lv. 2.png(Talk) 14:18, 27 February 2020 (UTC)

The only official renders of Male Agent 8 would be the ones of both him and the female Agent 8. No stand-alones unfortunately. ZBroadcast (talk) 20:59, 29 February 2020 (UTC)

Golden Barnsquid Award

Editors here who are also on Nookipedia know that the golden leaf award is an award users give to other users to show recognition and respect, right? Why don’t we do something like that and call it the golden barnsquid award? Just an idea. Tell me what you think about that and why. £|_@|\/|1232S2 Weapon Main Hero Roller Lv. 2.png(Talk) 16:40, 9 March 2020 (UTC)

Barnsquids were discontinued a long time ago due to a lack of interest. I don't think this will change if we bring in a new barnsquid award.--S2 Icon Inkling Squid Green.png Splatana talk contribs S2 Icon Inkling Squid Pink.png 09:44, 17 March 2020 (UTC)

Aaaaah well. Ok! £|_@|\/|1232S2 Weapon Main Hero Roller Lv. 2.png(Talk) 12:49, 17 March 2020 (UTC)

I already made the changes to the widget...we just need to re-add it to the main page. -DJParticle (talk) 03:32, 22 April 2020 (UTC)

is this how you add a discussion comment?

i'm new and i have no idea how to add a comment in a discussion. Black hole (talk) 18:43, 1 May 2020 (UTC)

Yes, this is how you would add a discussion on a talk page. Thanks for the inquiry! JoeRunner (talk) 18:49, 1 May 2020 (UTC)

I think that a lot of the content we currently have on musicians can be streamlined.

  • Merge musicians into a single page, or more likely have pages by role/instrument.
    • The likes of Hiroaki Takeuchi for example don't have enough relevant information to warrant a full page. I'd say even the more major vocalists like Mari Kikuma don't either. The list of songs on her page are just ones her character sings in which can be easily gathered.
      • The gallery on Mari's page has a bunch of images that aren't relevant either. I'd arguably say that only the recording ones are ones we'd keep.
  • Have all images of musicians in a singular musicians category, which will also have the aforementioned merged pages in it. The current system of having a category for every instrument seems unnecessary to me.

Please share any opinions you have on the matter so we can hopefully come to a good system.

Thanks, Inkling luke.png Inkling talk.png 15:26, 3 May 2020 (UTC)

Couldn't agree more, to be honest! Putting images and categories and pages all over the place seems a bit much, no matter how much it is worthwhile. I especially agree with merging individual pages into ones per role, though maybe keeping separate pages for major voice actors? GloverMist (talk) 16:10, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, I guess if anyone is worthy of a page it'd be the VAs for the Squid Sisters and Off the Hook since they do a lot of talking and singing. Inkling luke.png Inkling talk.png 16:13, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
That would make sense as well since people aren't going to be searching for the name of the Chirpy Chips vocalist for example, but they might search for ones for Off the Hook or the Squid Sisters.

I'm glad I've already been seeing some cleaning up being done around here with regard to artists. I've always felt weirded out how their personal pictures have been used but didn't really feel like it was my place to actively exclude them (and honestly part of the reason why I've been making individual pages for the concerts is because of how the musician galleries made me realize how bloaty the live performances page had gotten). StarAdamStar (talk) 09:11, 5 May 2020 (UTC)


So. I noticed that there is barely anything on the wiki about Arowana Castle. It is referenced by Sunken Scrolls & Captain Cuttlefish, but no page for it? I would like something on Arowana Castle please. Note: There is nothing on the wiki about Arowana Castle except minor references.

redpanda0310 (talk) 15:22, 7 May 2020 (UTC) redpanda0310 (talk) 15:30, 7 May 2020 (UTC)

It is only mentioned once in the story, and even then very vaguely, so all we have to go on is fanfiction, which is, according to the policy, not allowed in main space, so we are gonna have to wait ahwhile. £|_@|\/|1232S2 Weapon Main Hero Roller Lv. 2.png(Talk) 16:11, 7 May 2020 (UTC)

Ok then. No salt here. redpanda0310 (talk) 16:19, 7 May 2020 (UTC)

Project Splatoon 3?

Are we gonna talk about Project Splatoon 3? It's not canon but it is still big in Splatoon media right now. Could we make, like, a speculation article or something? If anybody wants to look at Project Splatoon 3 the link is here. Just askin. redpanda0310 (talk) 16:25, 7 May 2020 (UTC)

Maybe a blog? £|_@|\/|1232S2 Weapon Main Hero Roller Lv. 2.png(Talk) 16:36, 7 May 2020 (UTC)

If we do, it shouldn’t go on the mainspace, as it’s fan content. Even if it is extremely impressive. GloverMist (talk) 16:41, 7 May 2020 (UTC)
I agree. £|_@|\/|1232S2 Weapon Main Hero Roller Lv. 2.png(Talk) 17:53, 7 May 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, definitely not on the mainspace... Maybe we could have a whole new "Community" article about it? redpanda0310 (talk) 22:06, 7 May 2020 (UTC)
If you want, you can create an article collaboratively with other Inkipedia users, in the blogspace (any page title beginning with Blog:). You could feature your article on Inkipedia:Blogs. Blogspace hasn't been used in a while, but everyone is free to use it. Heddy (talk) 05:36, 13 May 2020 (UTC)
yea, ima do that. may I add it as a Project on the Current Projects page? redpanda0310 (talk) 19:05, 13 May 2020 (UTC)
Current projects is only for mainspace projects. For blogspace, you can add a link under the "recent blog posts" on Inkipedia:Blogs. Heddy (talk) 19:46, 13 May 2020 (UTC)
Ok. Thanks for clarification.

redpanda0310 (talk) 10:50, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

BTW, I am not good at adding files but I want to put the full Project Splatoon 3 on Inkpedia, and I have all the files downloaded in a Zip archive (cuz the whole thing was too much to store on my internal hard-drive). Can I send you the Zip and you do the importing and stuff?

Thanks, redpanda0310 (talk) 13:34, 15 May 2020 (UTC)

I thought you just wanted to write an article about it? You should just link to their website. Re-posting all of an artist's content here is totally unnecessary. Heddy (talk) 13:51, 15 May 2020 (UTC)

Ok, I just thought it would be helpful to store it internally... Thoughts? redpanda0310 (talk) 18:52, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

Yeah! purpose

As I have never posted using either Splatoons Miiverse function or Splatoon 2s mailbox, I never got Yeah!'s. What do they do to the author of the post? Buffs, coin or something? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Redpanda0310 (talkcontribs) 16:30, 7 May 2020 (UTC)

Way back in the day on Miiverse, yeahs essentially just acted as likes on other social media. They do the same thing in Splatoon! Just for kudos and don’t do anything, essentially. GloverMist (talk) 16:41, 7 May 2020 (UTC)
Wait, so "Yeah!"'s existed separate from Splatoon in Miiverse @ that point? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Redpanda0310 (talkcontribs) 22:10, 7 May 2020 (UTC)
That’s right. Miiverse was invented around the time the Wii U came out in 2012 and Splatoon picked up on it when it came out in 2015! Miiverse, of course, closed in 2017, so Splatoon 2 is the last remnant of a similar system. But in a different way, of course. (Also, I’ve added your signatures on for you. Remember to do that in future!) GloverMist (talk) 21:45, 10 May 2020 (UTC)


Hello! I joined today, because this is a really cool website. But, ( there’s always a but ) I have a few suggestions. I have no idea how to add them, so guidance would be helpful. 1. Maybe you could add a background. Staring at white gets pretty boring. The stardew valley wiki has one. Maybe the Splatoon 2 loading screen? 2. You could make each article section thingy a drop down, so you can skim the sections. (Also in stardew valley wiki) 3. I don’t know if you can, but I can’t see any pictures. I don’t know what that’s about. And what’s the four tildes thing about? Artisan FoxX (talk) 21:57, 9 May 2020 (UTC)

Hello there! Nice to meet you and welcome to the wiki! Thanks for the ideas. We’d have to see about backgrounds, they may interfere with the current layout. I’d like to see what others think, though! As for dropdowns, that may be helpful, but it appears that Stardew Valley Wiki only has them on mobile view. Pictures are still loading correctly here, so I’m not sure about that. May be an issue on your side.
As for the tildes, they just automatically add your signature to pages, and looks like you’ve done it correctly already! If you have any questions, feel free to ask. GloverMist (talk) 22:15, 9 May 2020 (UTC)
