New page idea

So... I´m not sure if this subject merits a new page but here's a suggestion for a new page: You know those boxies that appear sometimes when you follow a link from a news page, or download Octo Expansion? The ones that appear in Inkopolis? The ones Bridgett loves? I looked and I couldn't find any reference to them on the Inkipedia. Do you think we need anything on this? I´m honestly not sure.

--redpanda0310 (talk) 16:31, 26 April 2021 (UTC)

IDK. My opinion is pretty mixed. I think it would be helpful but also its kinda self-explanatory. However it you make it right it could work.  HazeL(WN) Talk Contribs 
Yeah, tbh idke.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Redpanda0310 (talkcontribs)
I don't think there is more than a sentence or two to write about that. So it would be better to add info to an existing article instead of making a new article. Heddy (talk) 00:59, 30 April 2021 (UTC)
Which article though? The Inkopolis one, or the Octo Expansion one? Or am I too late and it's already added? FirewaveAgent 4 official art.png 22:29, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

Expandible Table

So I tried inserting an expandible table with the other titles below the title (I don't know what to call them, it's in Weapon), but when I expand the table, there's a white gap above "Clothing" and "Shoes". Is there a way to fix this? dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 19:33, 27 April 2021 (UTC)

Can you copy the code to your sandbox so we can see what issue you are talking about? Heddy (talk) 02:00, 29 April 2021 (UTC)
I made the page. User:Dedf1sh07/Sandbox I've seen this issue in a lot of user pages and I've been wanting to fix them, but I don't know what the problem is, or how to fix it. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 02:25, 29 April 2021 (UTC)
@Dedf1sh07 The white space on the "List of Pure Gear" line is caused by the colspan you have specified on that line. Change it to colspan="4". Heddy (talk) 00:51, 30 April 2021 (UTC)
Thank you! This was bugging me so much, so I appreciate the help! dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 02:24, 30 April 2021 (UTC)


This page isn't working for me

So I was combing over pages, and I found a few things that I thought were off with the hare vs tortoise page (such as the trivia section being right in the middle of the page). When I tried to edit it, though, the editing page was unresponsive. I continued to wait and try again for about an hour or so (believe it or not), but no dice. May someone please try to edit it and see whether it is unresponsive for them? I'm worried that something may be wrong with the page (or my computer). Thanks! WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 21:26, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

First of all, the trivia section is in the correct space, between the Top 100 and the Quotes. Seconds of all, it's being unresponsive for me, too. I tried purging the cache, but it still wouldn't work. I think the best solution is to just wait it out for a while. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 21:34, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

Oops, forgot about the trivia space... sorry! There's still something I wanna fix on that page though, so I'll wait for a bit and try again later. If the page is still unresponsive in 13 hours or so, then I'll contact an administrator about it. Thanks, f1sh! WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 21:40, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

Yeah,the page is still unresponsive. I'm going to contact an admin now. WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 12:39, 30 April 2021 (UTC)

The page seems to be functioning perfectly fine, I don't see what the issue is. Eminence Chatter 17:41, 30 April 2021 (UTC)
It's when you try to edit the page. When I try to edit the page, it keeps being unresponsive and the page won't load. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 17:47, 30 April 2021 (UTC)
When I try to edit it works fine for me.  HazeL(WN) Talk Contribs 

Quick question...=

Yeah so quick question; Are users like me allowed to nominate people for rights? I have a certain person in mind who I think deserves a promotion. WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 19:48, 30 April 2021 (UTC)

Anybody can nominate anyone for a right, even if you nominate yourself. Just make sure you ask them if they're interested first. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 19:55, 30 April 2021 (UTC)

Are you interested in having rights ;)? WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 19:56, 30 April 2021 (UTC)

I mean, I've made a RfR before, but since nobody voted and I was very inexperienced, I was thinking about making another maybe this summer. I would be very glad to have Patroller rights, though, and I'm fine if you nominate me. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 19:59, 30 April 2021 (UTC)

It's settled then! WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 20:01, 30 April 2021 (UTC)

Just wondering, though. If someone makes an RfR, how long does it have to be until it's approved/declined and archived? dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 20:03, 30 April 2021 (UTC)

I think I saw somewhere says like 2 months ChessMaster [TALK] 20:04, 30 April 2021 (UTC)

No, It's usually 4 weeks, but it can be 2 weeks if there's a general vote. WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 20:05, 30 April 2021 (UTC)

well I was way off that :P ChessMaster [TALK] 21:42, 30 April 2021 (UTC)

Quick question: How do I add photos the my user page? Splatto (talk)

Creating a blog post

So I'm new to this wiki and was thinking about creating a blog for a inkfest. How do I make one? OctoRed (talk) 14:05, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

@OctoRed All you have to do is create this page: User:OctoRed/(INKFEST TITLE HERE) and then put your Inkfest into INK:FEST using the format. If putting the Inkfest into the Inkipedia page is to difficult, I could do it for you. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 16:56, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

Salmon Run for Strategy?

I feel like we should put a Salmon Run section between Countermeasures and Gear Abilities into Strategy pages because there is no information about Salmon Run on any Strategy page. Since Salmon Run has a variety of weapons, sometimes consisting of very advanced weapons, I want newcomers to have some advice in case this happens. Please tell me your opinions. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 18:42, 3 May 2021 (UTC)

Honestly I feel like that's a good idea. I think it is worth mentioning ChessMaster [TALK] 18:49, 3 May 2021 (UTC)
I agree. I can make a test for it here User:Squid400/Salmon run strat Squid400 (talk) 18:58, 3 May 2021 (UTC)

I agree with making this page! This could also help more experienced players remember strategies they may have had or learn new ones. it could also help me, too. DynamoOcto Expansion chat session 8 image.png 19:18, 3 May 2021 (UTC)

I put some info for Salmon Run onto the Splashdown Competitive page. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 19:25, 3 May 2021 (UTC)

I like that idea! Now, you may not know this about me, but I'm kinda interested in stage layout and design, so maybe we could map out routes and put the images on some salmon run stage pages? WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 19:29, 3 May 2021 (UTC)

Yeah, we need to put in routing into Strategy pages. I'll notify DaDoc and SeeDeeEss about these ideas. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 19:36, 3 May 2021 (UTC)

I like this idea! I also think we should have Competitive pages for Stages & Modes. Like; strategies for Tower Control on Moray Towers, and what are the best routes to push the Rainmaker on each Stage. I'm also on board with Salmon Run strat pages. They could be for Boss Salmonids, Known Occurrences, Tide Levels and Weapon roles. Just giving out my opinions and ideas! P.J. GT (talk) 22:16, 3 May 2021 (UTC)

Good idea! FirewaveAgent 4 official art.png 02:25, 5 May 2021 (UTC)
I forgot to mention about Stage Call-Out names could be added to that Stage’s Competitive page. P.J. GT (talk) 13:14, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

I also think that we should make something like "Mode Strategy" or "Stage Strategy". It would be best if we could combine the two. Maybe put the Mode Strategy into Stage Strategy pages? Please give me your opinions. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 19:46, 19 May 2021 (UTC)

Change?

Did editing change for anybody? The way I can edit changed. Now there's edit and edit source. Im confused ChessMaster [TALK] 00:18, 4 May 2021 (UTC)

VisualEditor and DiscussionTools were added to the wiki. This should make it easier to use talk pages. Notice the [ reply ] button! Heddy (talk) 00:45, 4 May 2021 (UTC)
I like it! It makes editing pages a lot easier now! dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 00:47, 4 May 2021 (UTC)
Eh. Not what I'm used to. But I'll get over it. WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 10:53, 4 May 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, disregard that last comment, I really don't like this new editing. WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 11:05, 4 May 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, I’m a little confused too. What exactly is visual editing? AwildmuskS2 Weapon Main .52 Gal.png(Hablo Español?) 15:31, 4 May 2021 (UTC)
I believe visual editing is when you click "Edit" instead of "Edit Source". I'm not sure, though. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 15:33, 4 May 2021 (UTC)
Ya, whats the difference between edit and edit source? Squid400 (talk) 15:36, 4 May 2021 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure it's like pressing the edit tab on the top of a page. WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 16:37, 4 May 2021 (UTC)
"Edit Source" is basically the same thing as "Edit" before the update, while "Edit" is, well, it's hard to explain but it's like a newer style of editing if you prefer it. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 16:42, 4 May 2021 (UTC)
If you don't like the new way of editing, you can always click on edit source. It allows you to edit the old fashioned way :) ChessMaster [TALK] 16:49, 4 May 2021 (UTC)
In short, "edit source" is the same thing as it always was, as I'm sure you've noticed, while the new standard "edit", the visual editor, allows you to edit a page while immediately being able to see what it would look like on the page without wikicode. I personally still like the classic style, but visual editor is very nice to have too. GloverMist (talk) 17:59, 4 May 2021 (UTC)
It sorta makes me uncomfortable FirewaveAgent 4 official art.png 22:25, 16 May 2021 (UTC)
@Firewave The "edit source" link makes you uncomfortable? You can turn it off at Preferences > Editing > uncheck "Enable the visual editor". This will completely disable Visual Editor, including the "edit source" links. Heddy (talk) 22:31, 16 May 2021 (UTC)
Ok, thank you! FirewaveAgent 4 official art.png 22:33, 16 May 2021 (UTC)
Thank you it worked and I feel a lot better! :D FirewaveAgent 4 official art.png 22:35, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

Info

Just to let you guys know, this is my second account for my phone. I will link to it as soon as I get my computer. DynamoTheSecond (talk) 18:43, 4 May 2021 (UTC)

What is this second account going to be used for? Unless you have a very good reason for making a second account, it will most likely be banned. Thanks! Eminence Chatter 19:39, 4 May 2021 (UTC)

I forgot my password of my main account, and this one is for my phone so I can still edit. DynamoTheSecond (talk) 19:58, 4 May 2021 (UTC)

You should NOT use one account for a computer and a separate one for your phone. You should choose one account and use it everywhere. I left a message on your talk page suggesting that you recover your password. Heddy (talk) 22:08, 5 May 2021 (UTC)

profile picture

I was wondering how to add a profile picture — Preceding unsigned comment added by Octo girl (talkcontribs) 18:06, 6 May 2021

Try looking at other users userpages for help. Eminence Chatter 18:10, 6 May 2021 (UTC)

@User:Octo girl Do you mean a Mebuika icon, or a signature? I can help you with either if you need it! DynamoOcto Expansion chat session 8 image.png 19:29, 6 May 2021 (UTC)

please send me a link to a Mebuika maker because I do not understand Japanese and I can't find one in English Octo girl (talk) 00:44, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

yeah I do need help with it Octo girl (talk) 01:28, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

Oh, ok. What part of it do you need help with? Do you need help with uploading the file, or do you want the mebuika link? DynamoOcto Expansion chat session 8 image.png 10:49, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

uploading the file Octo girl (talk) 11:34, 7 May 2021 (UTC)
Oh yeah! You should scroll up. At the top of the page (any page) you'll see an area of the left side of your screen. Scroll down just a little to see the whole thing. Once you see the [tool] bar look at the section in it. Its the third one from the top! In case you can't find it here is a link. Upload. Make sure you have the image as a file! If you didn't or you don't know how just go to the mebuika and right-click the image. (or use two fingers and hold if your on a mobile device) Once you do that you will see a bar that says save to device. Go ahead and head to the upload page and do choose file! Its self explanatory from there :D (I'm sorry that its so wordy I love typing and I typed this in like 2 minutes) :D good luck! /ꚍꚕ℮Ꮟ℮⍺Ꭶꚍ\/:Tαℓк:\ 12:46, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

New Page Idea

So I was thinking and I thought of a new page idea. A page about the Ink Refill Items in Octo Expansion. It could be like the other Mechanics pages but about the Ink Refill. I think it could be useful but I want some opinions about it. I wouldn't want to create a page that is useless. :) ChessMaster [TALK] 02:04, 8 May 2021 (UTC)

But won't that page have like a page size of 1,000 bytes or something? I feel like it would be really small, but I guess we could try it. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 02:11, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
I'm not sure about the page size. I'll try a draft and see how it looks. ChessMaster [TALK] 02:14, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
Does it have an official name (whatever in-game characters call it, if they ever talk about it)? The ink tank refills are specific to Octo Expansion, so I suggest adding it to the Octo Expansion article. Use the format of the Equipment section of the Octo Canyon article. If you believe you can write enough to create an article dedicated to the ink refill item, then go ahead, but I recommend adding to the Octo Expansion article first. It might also be worth mentioning In the ink tank article, and station articles where the refills are present, if not already mentioned in these articles. Heddy (talk) 04:59, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
It's already mentioned in the Ink Tank article, and it's called the "Ink Refill" item, according to that page. Still, I think we should use it as a conjecture. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 05:53, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
Alright so I'm working on the page. It'll be a draft in my userpage. I just need a picture of an Ink Refill item. If anyone can find one, it would be awesome! ChessMaster [TALK] 14:20, 8 May 2021 (UTC)

test page

I think we should have a page for testing templates and talk about ideas for new templates so people who are new to editing and can get good ideas on how to use different templates --Octo girl (talk) 13:58, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

This may be a good idea. although i think ideas like this have been rejected before Squid400 (talk) 15:25, 10 May 2021 (UTC)
We have clear instructions on how to use templates in their respective places, and if new editors have trouble using them they can ask their questions here in the Ink Pump. I do think that this may be an okay idea, but we have other sources to use for help. DynamoOcto Expansion chat session 8 image.png 20:25, 10 May 2021 (UTC)
You should create template test pages in your user space. Like [[User:Octo girl/TemplateName]]. Then, the template can be used on other pages with {{User:Octo girl/TemplateName}}.
People new to template editing can read the template help page, and ask questions here in Ink Pump. Heddy (talk) 22:46, 16 May 2021 (UTC)
thanks Octo Girl[talk]Mebuika.png 15:30, 25 May 2021 (UTC)

Idea for main page

So I was thinkin' that we should add on Inkipedia:Inkfest widget to the main page but I wanted to know you guys opinions on it.  HazeL(WN) Talk Contribs 

We should probably keep it in community for now.Fancy Squid (talk) 14:41, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

I agree. The main page is mainly for stuff that is about Splatoon itself, and not the things that us Inkipedia users do in it. DynamoOcto Expansion chat session 8 image.png 20:04, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

Category:Redirect

As you may or may not know, I have created a category for redirect pages. Before I continue to put in pages into that category, I want to make sure you guys approve of it. Please tell me if I should delete it or not. Also, if it gets approved, if you want, you could help me put in all redirects into that page. Here is the code: [[Category:Redirect]] Thanks! dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 02:21, 15 May 2021 (UTC)

I do think it might be useful, but I'm not really authorized to give the go-ahead... FirewaveAgent 4 official art.png 22:23, 16 May 2021 (UTC)
Please use Special:ListRedirects. Categories are not needed for this. Heddy (talk) 22:49, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

Project I wanna tackle...

I was looking at Template:Foreignname and I noticed that there were a LOT of languages that haven't been used and I want to go with NOE Portuguese because my friend can speak NOE Portuguese and he wanted to help with tackling this project. We are doing it by phases and the 1st phase is S2 weapons. I will add this to the Inkipedia:Current projects page of Inkipedia if it goes through. Thanks for the attention. I would love if you could help.  HazeL(WN) Talk Contribs  12:13, 4 June 2021 (UTC)

Sure, anyone is welcome to add projects there. Is NOE Portuguese a language the game has been officially translated to? If yes, then there is no problem. Heddy (talk) 02:01, 20 July 2021 (UTC)

About the staff of Splatoon pages...

I noticed that the Infoboxes in the pages for the staff of the Nintendo/Splatoon series has a white gap on it. Since a gobbler won't be necessary in these pages, should I just move the real and/or construction tags? Just want to make sure so 40 edits don't get reverted consecutively. dedf1sh07[talk] 00:25, 5 June 2021 (UTC)

My password.

I was typing in my password for my account User:Yaxops. It said it was correct on chrome but it wouldn't log me in. Is there anything I did wrong? SirYaxops (talk) 13:29, 7 June 2021 (UTC) Nvm I got it! ^_^  HazeL(WN) Talk Contribs  14:13, 7 June 2021 (UTC)

Appearance section for weapons

Obviously, each weapon has a unique appearance that helps players tell them apart from one another. As some of you may know, I'm very big on accurate appearance descriptions, as a good chunk of my edits come from editing the appearance section on gear articles. I think we should make appearance sections for all kinds of weapons, as the only appearance info we have listed on weapon pages is in the trivia section, and some don't have any description for appearance (or even a trivia section) at all. Before I go ahead with the idea, I would like to have some consent from others (along with a helping hand or two). So, what do y'all think? WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 17:15, 18 July 2021 (UTC)

I think it's a good idea and I'm pretty sure that in some weapons, it is describing the appearance of it. The appearance section could be the first section of the weapon page (Such as above Splatoon info). ChessMaster [TALK] 17:27, 18 July 2021 (UTC)
I'm not so sure if the appearance should come first, since it's not the main point (as in the part most users look at first) of the article. I think a good place for it to go would be right under the data subsection. I'll make an example page on my userspace. Feel free to check it out once I'm done. WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 23:08, 19 July 2021 (UTC)
I don't expect appearance to change much between games. So I think using the same format as gear articles (a single appearance section, at the top of the article) would make the most sense. Heddy (talk) 01:58, 20 July 2021 (UTC)
What about weapons with multiple different appearances, like the splattershot? I feel that on some weapon pages, multiple appearance sections will be neccesary, but most should have just one, like you said. WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 18:10, 20 July 2021 (UTC)
So here's the example page I was talking about. Check it out and tell me what you think. Just click here! WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 18:22, 20 July 2021 (UTC)
Looks good to me. Heddy (talk) 14:20, 23 July 2021 (UTC)
