Gameplay videos for Octo Expansion and Return of the Mammalians levels?

I noticed that Splatoon 1 Octo Valley stages have gameplay footage and I was wondering if it should be added to the Octo Expansion and Return of the Mammalians stages too. I just wanted to inquire just in case there was a specific reason that none of them have gameplay. TheYoshiGang (talk) 18:51, 17 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I wondered that too. I asked about it, and Anemoia said,"This might be more suited for Strategy Wiki (walkthroughs are currently being ported there). Unless you mean something completely different." I replied,"Just wondering because some of the Splatoon 1 stages have gameplay videos." They then said,"If you'd like you can help by moving those to the aforementioned wiki. Here on Trig's page is a quick explanation of how it works. You can cut walkthroughs from Inkipedia pages and paste them on the appropriate Strategy pages. If the Inkipedia pages only have gameplay videos and no written walkthroughs, well... you can write them yourself if you feel like it." Stay Fresh!

Thank you, I will try writing some strategies on those pages. I mainly wanted to know because it seemed odd. What about weapon demonstration videos? Are they staying? TheYoshiGang (talk) 16:06, 27 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I hope so. I would make them, but I lack an online membership. Just so you are aware, Inkipedia says that StrategyWiki has pages for Return Of The Mammilians, but they actually don't. The only two that are there were made by me lol. (There is a third incomplete one, that me and Trig worked on.) Just so yknow, you would have a lot of work to do if you wanna complete it. But if you really want to, go right ahead! StrategyWiki does need those pages. Stay Fresh!

That does sound interesting, in a few months I will most likely have more chances to work on Inkipedia, so I could probably work on StrategyWiki too, since I am very passionate about Splatoon. TheYoshiGang (talk) 17:51, 27 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Me too! I am super passionate about the game! You should check out my user page! Stay Fresh NewSquidbeakSplatoon (talk)S3 Tableturf Battle card The Eel Deal - Frye.png 18:07, 27 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Btw, if you wanna add weapon demonstrations,(assuming you can access the lobby) You should probably ask whoever is in charge of weapon demonstrations how to do one, like what to show off, because, if you've seen the S1 and S2 ones, you know that there are a list of things they must show off in a specific order. (Like how in S2, they would view the weapon 360, then shoot in front of them until they have no more ink, then attack the dummy etc.) Now fr, Stay Fresh!

How did the datamines for Drizzle Season 2023 got never taken down?

I didn't want to datamine, but the users added a bit of datamines but never got taken any action. Why did this never happen? Is it good to add content hours before it releases? KPOfficial26 (talk) 01:26, 30 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Simply put, not everything manages to get caught. We have editors who try to keep an eye out but sometimes things still slip through the gaps. In future, if you notice leaked content being documented you are more than welcome to revert and/or add deletion notices as necessary, as well as contact the users breaking policy to inform or remind them of said policy. It's not solely something patrollers and admins are in charge of. Hope this helps! Driftin Soul (talk) 01:45, 30 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Skin is glitched to default Timeless

I accidentally did something that caused the custom Timeless skin to delete on my end. Can you show me how to fix it? KPOfficial26 (talk) 12:49, 3 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I got it back to normal by following the directions on the Timeless page. Thank you for the information. KPOfficial26 (talk) 12:59, 3 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Big Run Bug

I scored 140 in a big run, but got a bronze decoration, has anyone else had this bug? Wind Waker Link.jpg S2 Weapon Main Hero Shot Lv. 3.png (talk) 03:55, 4 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes, Nintendo has acknowledged the bug and is working on fixing it. S3 Badge Nautilus 47 5.pngFancyRatCredits - Inkling Boy Eating Popsicle.png 04:00, 4 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It is a known bug, yes, and there is a patch on the way sometime soon. Driftin Soul (talk) 04:00, 4 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
So I confirmed that many others on Reddit had this problem as well, I’ll contact Big N tomorrow Wind Waker Link.jpg S2 Weapon Main Hero Shot Lv. 3.png (talk) 04:04, 4 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You really don't need to, as me and FancyRat said there has already been an upcoming patch announced by Nintendo. Driftin Soul (talk) 05:19, 4 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I actually added my Reddit comment before yours and Rats loaded in my computer, so I ended up not doing it.
Thanks though Wind Waker Link.jpg S2 Weapon Main Hero Shot Lv. 3.png (talk) 21:56, 4 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Splatfest event categories

I noticed a lot of Splatfest event pages were uncategorized so I was moving a bunch of them to Category:Splatfest events when another user (thanks Randomnamehere :D) brought up a good point - should they instead be categorized under the subcategories Category:Splatoon Splatfest events, Category:Splatoon 2 Splatfest events, and Category:Splatoon 3 Splatfest events? This is how Category:Splatfest Top 100 listings organizes its articles which I agree makes more sense rather than throwing them all onto the same category page. Not sure if mods have access to mass-editing tools to automatically tag them which might be easier than doing it manually. Lucs100 (talk) 16:50, 4 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I also think it makes more sense to use the subcategories. I have also noticed that some Splatfest pages are in both Category:Splatfest events and the subcategory. I think this is unnecessary, they should be removed from Category:Splatfest events, since they are already in the subcategory.  GX_64 (talk)  01:02, 5 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
A lot of pages are in the main categories rather than the respective sub categories. But, that's not how they're supposed to be sorted as far as i'm aware. Ma-Ran-rieS3 Icon Marie.png 15:13, 5 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Regarding School Cardigan's gender (referred gender)

Is it safe to simply use 'they/them' pronouns for School Cardigan? Or should we use 'he/him' or 'she/her'? How should the team be referred to?

I posted this on Talk:List of Splatoon manga characters but it was ignored so I re-posted it here. Ma-Ran-rieS3 Icon Marie.png 16:16, 8 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

just use they/them Sol (talk) 17:38, 10 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Many music files have errors

about the music files , about half of them come up with errors. Any guidelines on how I might be able to fix this? Thx Sol (talk) 17:36, 10 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

If you are on an Apple device, it's because Apple doesn't support OGG Arceusgjengen (talk) 17:40, 10 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I noticed in the source some of the files are mp3s instead of OGG - would it be feasible to convert all the OGGs to Mp3s? I don't mind doing it if anyone knows how I can change the files over, im happy to re-record etc. I mean, a lot of people use Apple devices, so it might be a beneficial change Sol (talk) 17:43, 10 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think there was talk of shortening all music files and turning them to .mp3 format for copyright reasons. I can look into this if you're interested. (If you're on the Inkipedia Discord server, it might make things easier, although this isn't required.) AnemoiaTalk! 18:26, 10 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I really hope we don’t have to shorten them, cuz this is how I listen to Sploon music at school, cuz SoundCloud is blocked. (Can’t use YouTube) I don’t know why we have to shorten them, Nintendo hasn’t seemed to care, but Nintendo can be L sometimes and take it down. Don’t know how they would take it down or how they would sue us but I’m not trying to find out fr. I wonder if there is some way around this… whatever tho. Stay Fresh! NewSquidbeakSplatoon (talk)S3 Tableturf Battle card The Eel Deal - Frye.png 18:36, 10 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I don't think we have to shorten them. I'd still like to convert them to mp3 though. Sol (talk) 18:45, 10 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh really!!! That would explain why most of the music says error for me too ;-; only a few won’t, I never knew why but now I do! Thanks for clearing that up! NewSquidbeakSplatoon (talk)S3 Tableturf Battle card The Eel Deal - Frye.png 18:11, 10 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok I've successfully converted over the first entry in the music page, boot screen, to mp3. It should work now and is 1 minute long. Looks like it will be a long process but at least I know how to do it. Go and check out for yourself if you want. Sol (talk) 18:55, 10 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok! Thanks a lot! I know this will take a long time, so thanks for volunteering! NewSquidbeakSplatoon (talk)S3 Tableturf Battle card The Eel Deal - Frye.png 11:53, 11 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I actually had a question... how do you get to the page for the file? I see the music file, but I can't get to the page, where I can replace it, view it, and just do stuff with it. Could you tell me how to get there? Stay Fresh! NewSquidbeakSplatoon (talk)S3 Tableturf Battle card The Eel Deal - Frye.png 13:03, 11 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
