A page about beta and scrapped concepts for the Splatoon series

So I was reading something that BamBamOh posted on the talk page of the rumors and leaks section, they were talking about how the scrapped Splatoon 2 weapon, "Bazooka", could be the inkzooka-like weapon in Splatoon 3, and I thought that it would be a good idea to make a page about all the beta concepts and scrapped ideas for the series as a whole. There's a lot to cover, and it would help organize all of the random comments about stuff like this. I wanted to know if y'all liked the idea before I went ahead with it. So what do y'all say? WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 19:09, 3 March 2021 (UTC)

I like the idea, but I don't really have any authority over this. FirewaveAgent 4 official art.png 19:58, 3 March 2021 (UTC)


Never mind, there's already pages for this stuff. WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 22:04, 3 March 2021 (UTC)

Trailer

Should there be a page for the trailer? Just wondering. FirewaveAgent 4 official art.png 20:04, 3 March 2021 (UTC)

Splatoon 3 covers everything about the trailer. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 20:27, 3 March 2021 (UTC)

Got it. FirewaveAgent 4 official art.png 20:38, 3 March 2021 (UTC)

What does the Inkipedia need to work on?

So I've noticed that quite a few pages have had things to do for quite a while, and not many people have really done anything about it. I know, I know, people need to do other things sometimes, and with the recent drop of the Splatoon 3 trailer, everyone's excited and eager to gather as much info about the game as possible. But I couldn't help bringing up the point of what we could do to make sure that people are getting all of the info they need or want. And, bonus question, should we make a poll on this? WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 16:06, 4 March 2021 (UTC)

I agree. that was a poll a couple years ago, and i think i could introduce that again. Squid400 (talk) 17:11, 4 March 2021 (UTC)

Thank you! WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 18:48, 4 March 2021 (UTC)

Also, to kind of 1-up what I said about pages with things to do, we have a ton of pages with a to do list. Taking the fact that some pages have nothing to do yet still have a to do list because nobody's gotten around to remove them into consideration, I estimate that we have roughly 95-115 pages with to do lists. Yeah, we need to work on some things. WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 01:11, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

I think that the most things with to-do are the Octo Expansion pages and Stage quotes. The Octo Expansion Stations have the to-do for images and/or translation. The to-do for stages are the translations for the quotes, and the expressions. I'm very slowly somewhat working on images, so we need someone/somepeople for the translations, and someone/somepeople for expressions, maybe even someone else to help me with images. I hope this helps to narrow it down somehow, and I don't mean to sound bossy in any way. CherryAudino75 (talk) 14:05, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

@User:CherryAudino75 You didn't sound bossy at all! Thanks for telling us exactly what we need to work on, though! I'll see what I can do to help ya out, but I'm mostly working on stuff about Splatoon 3 right now. WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 15:15, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

Weapon of the Day

I was looking at some discussion pages and I saw that someone came up with a weapon of the day idea. Should we go through with it? Timewip2020 (talk) 18:06, 4 March 2021 (UTC)

I don't think that will be necessary. Plus, someone would have to go through a random weapon generator every day. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 18:16, 4 March 2021 (UTC) True.SquidKid14 (talk) 18:24, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

Maybe weapon of the week/weapon category of the month then? FirewaveAgent 4 official art.png 02:55, 14 March 2021 (UTC)

IOTW

Had an idea called inkling of the week, kinda like iotm. Instead of that, i could write a small thing on exeptional inklings helping on inkipedia. i wont be biased, tell me what you think!Squid400 (talk) 18:17, 8 March 2021 (UTC)

I like the idea! I know inkling of the month was a thing, and that seemed pretty cool. Personally, since octolings are now playable, I think it'd be best if we did something like Inkling/Octoling of the week. Plus, I think It'd increase morale among users, inspiring them to go over pages and make the inkipedia the best it can be! WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 20:28, 8 March 2021 (UTC)

Every week is just to frequent. If you want to do this, you have to keep it monthly. EminenceTalk 16:14, 9 March 2021 (UTC)
I would be the one in charge of it, and it would not be voted. i would just look at the recent changes, or fumples edit counter, and see inklings with exeptional help full edits. Squid400 (talk) 16:37, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

Pages for upcoming specials in splatoon 3

I think we should start working on pages for splat3 specials. I'm already working on one for the laser beam thingy. I'll put the page link in this section once the draft is done. WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 20:30, 8 March 2021 (UTC)

I've finished my draft. here it is! Unnamed Laser Beam Special. Let me know what you all think! WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 20:43, 8 March 2021 (UTC)

Hey so I'm new here. So um how do you make new pages? Timewip2020 (talk) 05:43, 10 March 2021 (UTC)
@Timewip2020 Type the name of the article in the search bar, press search, and then follow the red link on the search result page. Heddy (talk) 06:25, 10 March 2021 (UTC)
@Heddy Thanks! I also finished a page for the Unnamed Crab Special! If you all could add that to the Weapons in Splatoon 3 NavBox, that would rock! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Timewip2020 (talkcontribs) 18:11, 10 March 2021

Impersonation

I really feel like either User:SquidKid149 is impersonating User: SquidKid14 or the other way around. I also found a User:SquidKid169 dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 18:10, 9 March 2021 (UTC) I do want to change my username...is that possible? SquidKid14 (talk) 18:27, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

@SquidKid14 to request a change for your username, you can go to Inkipedia:Requests for Rename. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 18:28, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

Octo Expansion Station

We really need to expand on the Octo Expansion stationss. I want all of the Octo Expansion stations to look similar to the Octo Canyon missions. Can someone help with this? Thanks! dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 21:45, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

Confirmed Weapons in Splatoon 3

Should we add checkmarks in Weapon for weapons confirmed to be in Splatoon 3? Such as the .96 gal and the Blaster/Range Blaster? Timewip2020 (talk) 18:55, 10 March 2021 (UTC)

Don't worry! We're already on it! WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 13:52, 11 March 2021 (UTC)

Happy Mar13 day!

I know, I know, it's a bit early, but I'm probably not going to be getting on the Inkipedia on Saturday in celebration (also known as a 7 hour long play session) of Marie! Now onto more serious talk, should we make a section for Mar13 day in the community glossary? It is commonly celebrated by splooners, after all! WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 14:45, 11 March 2021 (UTC)

I like the idea, but I'm not sure if we should put MAR13 in the Community Glossary. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 18:38, 11 March 2021 (UTC)

I think we should. I didn't even know about Mar13, since I joined recently. I know I had to learn the terms "squidbagging" and "squid party" from the glossary. I think other new splooners would like it too. FirewaveAgent 4 official art.png 00:56, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

Gear in S3

I was able to spot some returning gear in the S3 trailer, and I think that this info will be useful in the future. I was able to spot the studio headphones, fake contacts (possibly), camo layered LS, short beanie, Fugu bell hat, B-ball jersey (home), Camo zip hoodie, full moon glasses, Dakro golden tee (possibly), Gold Hi-horses (possibly), N-pacer sweat, baby jelly shirt and tie, swim goggles, golf visor, SV925 circle shades, Black arrowbands (possibly), and the hula pink shirt (possibly). Some of these are assumptions, marked with "possibly", but everything else I'm fairly confident I got correct. I got most of these from the big shot of splatsville, in case you were wondering. Hope these help us out! WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 20:14, 11 March 2021 (UTC)

@WoomyMcBoomy If you need screenshots for them, I downloaded the trailer in 1080p so I can put them in if you want. Timewip2020 (talk) 20:20, 11 March 2021 (UTC)
@Timewip2020Before we start putting in pics, let's start by adding info to specific gear pages. After the info is put in, we'll start working on pics. Do ya mind helping me put in info on gear pages that I listed? WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 20:27, 11 March 2021 (UTC)
@WoomyMcBoomy Sure! Timewip2020 (talk) 20:32, 11 March 2021 (UTC)
In Viantastic's video of customization, he states that every single piece of gear is new. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 20:35, 11 March 2021 (UTC)

well then, he must've missed something, because we can clearly see the b-ball jersey (home) worn by the inkling with the pigtail hairstyle, as well as other gear items worn by other inklings and octolings. Sorry if I came off somewhat rude, by the way... WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 20:38, 11 March 2021 (UTC)

You are correct, he stated the the gear in the GAMEPLAY section of the trailer is new, not the gear in the Ville. Timewip2020 (talk) 20:40, 11 March 2021 (UTC)
Then please specify what part of the trailer you saw the gear instead of just saying that it is seen. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 20:43, 11 March 2021 (UTC)
You can see all of these gear items during the pan of Splatsville. WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 20:51, 11 March 2021 (UTC)

By the way WoomyMcBoomy I'm not going to include some images due some being wayyyyyy to blurry to use (Ex. swim goggles) or they are small to add in (Ex. Gold Hi-Horses) also not adding any "assumption" ones as well. Timewip2020 (talk) 21:53, 11 March 2021 (UTC)

k. WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 22:28, 11 March 2021 (UTC)

So, in this photo we can see more returning gear items, such as the knitted hat, safari hat, Annaki yellow cuff, and the snowy down boots, and probably some others is missed too. I'll analyze the photos for more gear items, but these are a few i saw. Can someone please put info on the pages regarding the gear? Also in this photo, the octoling wearing the annaki yellow cuf has the punk hairstyle, so we have that going for us, too.WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 15:05, 12 March 2021 (UTC)

Will we have returning stages in S3?

So I watched a vid of someone talking about all of the stages that they want to return in Splatoon 3, and that got me thinking; Since S3 takes place in the splatlands, which are far away from inkopolis, and the stages in S1 and S2 are in or near inkopolis, will we see any stages from the previous games return? WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 02:34, 14 March 2021 (UTC)

Yes, its been confirmed via the job listing for a previous stage revisor. Timewip2020 (talk) 03:48, 14 March 2021 (UTC)

Well, we don't know for sure if the job was to remake stages from the previous games. Another possibility for this job could be fixing bugs and glitches on stages new to splatoon 3. WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 19:58, 15 March 2021 (UTC)

Are there restrictions on hosting minifests?

So I was lookin at the deets for Chessmaster's minifest, and I kinda wanna host one now! Are there any restrictions regarding user experience or anything similar to that for minifests? WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 22:37, 15 March 2021 (UTC)

There is absolutly none! You can just host one and see it people can join. That's what I did :)ChessMaster [TALK] 00:33, 16 March 2021 (UTC)

Mode Strategies

Should there be some strategy pages for multiplayer modes, such as Turf War, Rainmaker, etc.? I want some strategy guides for new players or competitive players who want to get to Rank X. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 00:14, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

I think that's a great idea! We'll need to list general facts and sense on how to play the mode, and possibly some tips on certain stages regarding that mode. Finally, I can put my splatoon 2 splategy guide to good use! WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 01:16, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

I think this is a great idea, and I'll help how I can, but I mainly use a charger, so that'll be all I can help. FirewaveAgent 4 official art.png 01:35, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

Minifest organization idea

So you know how people make a minifest, and you kinda have to dig around to find them? What if we made a page where we put our minifests, and someone could go to the page, look at a minifest they like, and join it? It would be a lot easier to find the minifests, and more people would join them! What do yall think? (Also, I recently made a minifest! Click here for the deets and how to join) WoomyMcBoomy (talk) 19:22, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

I think thats's a good idea! FirewaveAgent 4 official art.png 22:44, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

I know that I really need to calm down, but it's just so exciting to get to host a minifest! For those who are participating and those who are interested in joining, some more info was added to the minifest page, including a break schedule.

I need some help..

I dont know how to change of the font if the signing thing and add a image next to it, can someone help? PearlFan23 18:02, 20 March 2021 (UTC)

@PearlFan23 Do you mean a signature? If so, create the following page: User:PearlFan23/sig. Put the following code in your signature page: <span style="font-family:FONT STYLE HERE (optional)">[[User:PearlFan23|<span style="color:COLOR HERE (optional)">YOUR USERNAME HERE (or any other nickname)</span>]][[File:IMAGE NAME HERE (optional)|PIXEL SIZE HERE (max:30px)|link=LINK THAT THE IMAGE LEADS TO (optional)]]</span> When you are done creating the page and your signature, go to the preferences option on the top right of your screen, scroll down to signatures, and in the text box, type {{nosubst|User:PearlFan23/sig}} and click the check box that says "Treat signature as wikitext" and then click save on the bottom. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 18:21, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
This is all optional. If you don't want a fancy signature like some users do, that totally fine! Signatures are just ways to sign comments. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 18:26, 20 March 2021 (UTC)

Like this? PearlFan23 PearlFan23 OC.png 18:42, 20 March 2021 (UTC)

That's great! Nice job creating your own signature! dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 18:55, 20 March 2021 (UTC)

Minifest committee idea

So ya know how other wikis have wiki events, and those events are listed on the main page? I have an idea; What if we listed cool minifest ideas on the main page? Here is an idea of how the process will be like: There will be a page where people can post minifest ideas, and users can go to the page and back up the idea they like the most, and whichever minifest has the most people supporting it will be featured on the main page. There will be only one minifest a month, though. People can still host their own minifests if they want to, as well. It's kinda like poll selection, if ya think about it. I really like minifests, and I would love it if more people participated in them! So what do y'all think? If you don't like the idea, then trust me, I understand why. WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 23:07, 20 March 2021 (UTC)

I think this is a good idea, but wouldn't that be a lot of inkfests? FirewaveAgent 4 official art.png 19:57, 21 March 2021 (UTC)

“ A squid-themed layered shirt” Page?

Hello, I noticed that the shirt recieved in the Splatoon Global Testfire for pre-purchasing the full game does not have a dedicated page. Should we make one? Edit: Here’s the image S Gear Clothing SUP000.png AwildmuskS2 Weapon Main .52 Gal.png(Hablo Español?) 17:45, 22 March 2021 (UTC)

SUP000 is already documented in the Splatoon Global Testfire page. It does not need a dedicated page because it only existed in that demo. Heddy (talk) 11:46, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

Character Infobox Game Proposal

With the varying designs of characters in Splatoon, Splatoon 2, and inevitably Splatoon 3, I think it would be a good idea if the Template:InfoboxCharacter could be reworked to include the "Game" tab much like the Template:InfoboxStage or Template:InfoboxAbility.

Using the Octotrooper as an Example: Game tab for the one from Octo Valley, Game tab for the one from Octo Canyon, and the Sanitized version could simply use the Title tab since that one would just be titled "Sanitized Octotrooper". Does this sound like something that would be convenient for the Wiki? ZBroadcast (talk) 01:31, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

Sounds like a good idea to me!Fancy Squid (talk) 01:53, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

How do I add images?

I need help with importing an image from my photos. I am on an ipad. Can you let me know how to upload helpful pictures? DarkderpPRO (talk) 15:01, 24 March 2021 (UTC)

@DarkderpPRO To upload images, go to the left menu bar of Inkipedia and click "Upload file" under "Tools". From there, it's pretty much self-explanatory. If you want to use a file in a page, you can either use the images option on the left part of the menu bar when editing, or you can use the following code: [[File:FILE NAME HERE]] dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 15:33, 24 March 2021 (UTC)

Adding Images

I was wondering if there is a way to upload a screenshot directly from the Nintendo Switch?--YOLO2020 (talk) 15:46, 24 March 2021 (UTC)

Unfortunately no, the Switch screenshot will need to be imported to the photos app or files by uploading it to Twitter or Facebook and saving the image from there, QR Code, or putting it on a Micro SD Card. ZBroadcast (talk) 17:06, 24 March 2021 (UTC)

Automatic Gender Template

Can I use {{gender:{{ROOTPAGENAME}}|he|she|they}} for gender specific userboxes, like Template:Birthday Exaskliri (talk) 15:44, 25 March 2021 (UTC)

If you don't understand how it works see {{ROOTPAGENAME}} and {{gender:Username|male text|female text|text for unspecified}} on this Mediawiki page. Exaskliri (talk) 15:47, 25 March 2021 (UTC)

Another of the same account?

I saw that there was a User:Octy1234. I've seen the block log and I noticed that there was a User:Octolingboy1234 and a User:Octolinggirl1234 or something like that. The names are very similar and I feel like these users are the same person. Can someone (preferably a patroller or admin) watch this user? dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 20:23, 25 March 2021 (UTC)

Categorizing images

On the French Pokémon wiki Poképédia (and actually on Bulbapedia as well, I've just checked), there's a way of categorizing images that I personally find quite useful. If you look at e.g this image from Poképédia or the same one from Bulbapedia, they have categories for every single character or Pokémon that appears on the image. Poképédia actually only has these for Pokémon, but they have some sub-categories for the anime or TCG pictures.
Both of these things mean that it's very easy to find all the images on the wiki with a certain character/Pokémon on them, even those that aren't on their Gallery page. I know it's a lot of work, but I think it would be nice if we managed to do it here as well. To what extent we decide things to be important enough to be identified is to be discussed, I suppose; I don't think it'd be very useful to categorize every single weapon or gear, for example.
I'm suggesting this because one time I wanted to find a specific image of Pearl that I was pretty sure was on the wiki, but I wasn't sure where exactly. It was actually one of her dialogue portraits, but I didn't know they were called that, and since they weren't on her Gallery and an "all Pearl images" category didn't exist, I didn't find it and gave up at that time. I know I could've looked a bit further, like on the Splatfest pages, but I still feel like this would be a good idea to implement.
  #6-Frisk   S Ability Bomb Sniffer.pngS2 Weapon Special Booyah Bomb.png  09:45, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

There used to be categories like Category:Pearl and Category:Marina but Skua requested for those categories to be deleted. So there must have been some disagreement over the necessity of that type of category; perhaps you could ask Skua why they did not want those categories? Maybe it seemed like too much effort to maintain. As long as you are willing to put in the effort to create the category, I personally don't see any problem. Heddy (talk) 22:10, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
As per the discussion there was about this on the Discord, I'll be adding the dialogue portraits to the galleries shortly.

Hypsnoshades

Heya it's Carrie! So, I've been thinking. Could there be a Hyposhades page, would that be relavent, etc. I think it might work but I want to hear what other people think. ~~Carrietta "Carrie" White~~ (talk to me here) 19:11, 29 March 2021 (UTC)

Sounds like it could be a pretty good idea to me, just that there isn’t much information surrounding them, other than they appear in one mission and can brainwash people. If we could find extra info, though, it might work. GloverMist (talk) 20:07, 29 March 2021 (UTC)

Octolings in Inkipedia?

I personally think this page could be improved by adding octolings to it. Sure, there's plenty of inklings, but I think octolings would improve this website! Lots of fans believe that octolings are being controlled by the DJ, I think so too. What do you think?

just wondering how to make myself an edit count page

So, I don't mean a redirect to my contributions page, but rather those total edit count pages with categories for each namespace. Being sort of lazy, if I wanted to give myself a true barnsquid that meets both the criteria and the description on the barnsquid, I'd need to sort through my contributions page, sort it to mainspace edits and count every. Single. Edit. It could be very time-consuming depending on the barnsquid and how many edits required for it. Most of my edits may come from non-mainspace pages, that is true, however, since Splatoon 3 has been announced, I may get the chance to make more edits, and as such, if I make quite a lot more edits, and I might do just that when the game releases, I'd most likely give myself a barnsquid for the effort. If I had to look through my contributions page and count all my mainspace edits, it might take around an hour, give or take half, or a few minutes, depends on how many edits I made. -MemianneS2 Weapon Main Hero Blaster Lv. 2.pngBLASTERS FOR LIFE WOO 22:13, 30 March 2021 (UTC)

@Octokid?IDKilikeittho See this guide. Heddy (talk) 00:19, 31 March 2021 (UTC)
Also, you can quickly check how many mainspace edits you've made using Fumple's edit counter. Hope it helps! EminenceTalk 00:20, 31 March 2021 (UTC)

Question from Yaxops YaxopsMebukia.png (Don't worry User:Heddy its about the wiki)

So I was thinking I would make an inkfest Hamburger vs. Cheeseburger on May 28 (national hamburger day) but there are inkfest's already later (like how some are on 2022) is it okay if I fit that inkfest before some (Its fine if I can't I haven't made the page yet)

Thanks! Yaxops YaxopsMebukia.png

I'm not Heddy but I'm pretty sure the inkfests are just ordered by date, there's no restriction of them being actually in that order. You can organise inkfests whenever. Also cool idea :D Yawshi Fan (talk) 13:24, 31 March 2021 (UTC)
Oh I just mentioned User:Heddy because I wrote something on here but it was something for discord so he removed it. Thanks for the info! I'll let you join when I finish making the page!

Ok, thanks! DynamoOcto Expansion chat session 8 image.png 22:34, 31 March 2021 (UTC)

@Dynamo You can make a sandbox page by using a slash after User:Dynamo like User:Dynamo/Sandbox. You can just follow that link to make the page if you want. Heddy (talk) 01:59, 1 April 2021 (UTC)

Quick Q

Hi I was just wondering how I could make my own barnsquid for my Cheeseburger vs Hamburger inkfest because User:ChessMaster has barnsquids for his inkfests.

Thank you in advance, Yaxops BanterYaxopsMebukia.png

Too similar site colors

These are the current site colors we have:

The site colors of Splatoon and Splatoon 3 might be too similar. I suggest maybe changing the sitecolor of Splatoon 3 to dark purple or change the sitecolor of the first game to Orange or Dark Blue. What do you think? I'm saying this from the point of view of someone who doesn't have any color-blind but they might look the same for someone who can't differentiate between the two tones.

@Shahar (talk) I agree that we should change it to dark orange. I think this would help users who are colorblind (which hits close to home)! Love the suggestion! Yaxops BanterYaxopsMebukia.png 22:35, 2 April 2021 (UTC)

I’m not colorblind, but I agree too. I think a game’s site color should match that game’s main mascot character. Examples being; the Orange Inkling Girl in Splatoon 1, the Pink Inkling Girl in Splatoon 2, Agent 8 from the Octo Expansion and the Yellow Inkling Girl in Splatoon 3. S1’s shouldn’t be a color from it’s title logo IMO. P.J. GT (talk) 22:49, 2 April 2021 (UTC)

I also agree that we should change it. Im not color blind (I think) but 1 and 3 seem TOO similar. Maybe Orange would workChessMaster [TALK] 22:57, 2 April 2021 (UTC)

I think to change it would be for the better.Fancy Squid (talk) 02:34, 3 April 2021 (UTC)

It's too early to talk about this. When Splatoon 3 comes out, it will become clear what color best represents it. Also, there is no need for someone to be able to differentiate between the tones, because they are only used for style. Heddy (talk) 12:59, 3 April 2021 (UTC)
