Adding the missing songs of C-Side

There are at least 2 more songs that have not been added to the wiki. Any ideas? ChromeWolf (talk) 13:22, 14 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]

If @GX 64 has any information, I will be more than happy to help ChromeWolf (talk) 13:23, 14 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I think the reason that they haven't been added yet is that they don't have names, although some songs have been added that don't have names, such as Chaos Carnival. I am thinking that maybe the part about them in the C-Side page could be extended to include more information. I don't know if the files for them exist yet on Inkipedia. I will check tomorrow. GX 64 Splatoon 2 - Green Inkling Squid icon.png (talk) 13:46, 14 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Alright, thank you @GX 64. I'll look into it ChromeWolf (talk) 14:55, 14 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thinking we should come up with a name?
Nintendo I do hope your reading this. Chrome Wolf (talk) 14:36, 23 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Well, there's also the other unnamed Front Roe song, we should also think about adding that one. Octoling E s3 (talk) 23:06, 24 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Curent stages and stuff

for s2 on the front page we had the current stages snet2 shop and salmon run just wondering if we are adding that back for s3 Particle Zero (talk) 13:23, 14 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I have a feeling those have been added ChromeWolf (talk) 13:24, 14 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Apparently the stages from the previous Splatoon game are already in the lists, not in the Splatoon 3 because they are already in two games, and I believe they just don’t want isn’t to be shown twice. The same goes for Salmon Run NEXT WAVE music.
Foes this answer your question, @The octoling girl? Chrome Wolf (talk) 14:49, 23 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]

If so, could you tell us where that is? Please and thank you. the octoling girl 00:01, 21 October 2022 (UTC)
The SplatNet2 info was hidden on the Main Page to prevent confusion from Splatoon 3 players. If anyone wants to step up and create a Splatoon 3 equivalent for the wiki, they are more than welcome to create it! Heddy (talk) 22:15, 17 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Oh I thought that was something that was a work in progress or going to be added by the admins sometime, because I think a tweet said something about a new main page. Its nice to have some clarity on that. Cruelty to Salmons (talk) 19:01, 19 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Shiver's gender

Should we remove the article about Shiver's gender, since it's been confirmed? I'm just wondering, because I don't really feel like it's necessary anymore. ArivakiVA (talk) 16:45, 14 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]

There's an entire article about that? What page are you referring to? Heddy (talk) 22:09, 17 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Oh, oops. I'm dumb. wrong term, sorry! I meant a section, not an article. So sorry! ArivakiVA (talk) 17:14, 18 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
It's a section on her character page, I just used the wrong term. Sorry Heddy! I'm just new around here, haha... ArivakiVA (talk) 17:19, 18 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Been there, done that. Chrome Wolf (talk) 14:51, 23 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@ArivakiVA Next time you can just link to it like Shiver#Gender by using the wiki code [[Shiver#Gender]], so that we know what you're talking about.
Since this topic does not impact the entire wiki, you should discuss this at Talk:Shiver. There is already plenty of discussion there, just add a new topic specifically about your desired changes to the article. In general, information should not be removed from a wiki unless it is inaccurate or out-of-scope, so you need to have a good reason to remove content, and the majority of editors need to agree with you. So, go to Talk:Shiver to start that discussion. Heddy (talk) 15:10, 23 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you! I was just wondering. ArivakiVA (talk) 23:23, 23 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]

How do you create a page?

Sorry, I'm really new here, so I have no idea how most of this stuff works, but how do you create a page? Sorry about this...but thanks. ArivakiVA (talk) 18:14, 14 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Thats actually a good question, i dont know the official way to do it, but if you put whatever the name you want your page to have in the search bar and search it, there should be a pop up that say "create the page "(whatever you searched)" on this wiki!" with a red link to create the page.
I highly doubt thats the only way to do it tho. (btw if someone can tell me how to create categories please do) Lake (talk) 19:45, 14 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
That is one way to do it. Another is to (when on a page) use WhatLinksHere to type in the page you want to create. This can be done with categories as well, just by entering Category: to the start of the name. An alternate way is by having a broken link (in red) on a page, and then clicking said page to make the page. There is no so called "Create Page" page, though. Trig - 19:58, 14 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
You can also create new pages like this https://splatoonwiki.org/wiki/Newpage. Replace Newpage with the page title, and it will say: "There is currently no text in this page. You can search for this page title in other pages, search the related logs, or create this page." click "create this page" you're now creating a new page! Greasy Hot Dog (talk) 16:53, 17 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I really wouldn't create pages unless you know a lot about the subject, but I usually add in missing information, just to help out. ChromeWolf (talk) 12:19, 17 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Splatoon 3 Inkfests?

I saw that some events named “Inkfests” were made time ago by the Inkipedia community but that there are none in a long time, and Idk I think its good to try to start again with these custom splatfes-like events now with Splatoon 3, even if there are Splatfest ocurring, maybe a way to enjoy being part of the Inkipedia Community? Idk it will be something we should think together, don’t ya think?

Platelet✨(talk👌🏻) 23:30, 16 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I think it would be a great idea to start doing the Inkfests again. It would be a great way to make friends across the wiki. They aren’t to hard to do at all. Having three teams might be a challenge though. :) S3 art 3D Inkling splat.pngOddlildude (chat)S3 Inkling E-liter Scope Render.png 00:38, 17 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Ok @Oddlildude and @Platelet, should we make a page and throw out ideas, or is that something we should do on the discord? I'm not allowed to have discord :( , but maybe someone could throw it out there? People could maybe come up with ideas on discord, vote for it, and then announce it on the wiki tab. And maybe we could have multiple games going on at once, run by different people on the admin/ patroller team. I definitely think we could organize something though! DFTBA, Xandpochondria (talk) 14:37, 17 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • then announce it on the wiki tab* I meant the news tab, whoops! Sorry! Xandpochondria (talk) 14:38, 17 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I agree, I am new here and would love to start including myself into thing like this. Anyone have any suggestions??? ;) Octoling E s3 (talk) 00:36, 22 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
If you are thinking about that, could we maybe have a Halloween Inkfest? the octoling girl 00:06, 21 October 2022 (UTC)
I was actually thinking about hosting my own Inkfest! Currently I just need to make a rules page for it. I'll add the link to the page once I'm finished if you want to join! ArivakiVA (talk) 17:52, 17 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Okey dokey, here's the link, sorry about the name of the page though. Still need to fix it. Fest is called Chocolate vs. Vanilla! User:ArivakiVA/Chocolate vs. Vanilla ArivakiVA (talk) 18:37, 17 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Xandpochondria I think if we’re able to make a page for it on the wiki due to some not having discord. Of course the page would need to be marked with the UNOFFICIAL category. S3 art 3D Inkling splat.pngOddlildude (chat)S3 Inkling E-liter Scope Render.png 19:12, 17 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Hi there, I have moved your Inkfest page to User:ArivakiVA/Chocolate vs. Vanilla. Pages for Inkfests should be made in the userspace, not in the mainspace. Thanks! EminenceTalk 19:19, 17 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Also, if you have any other questions about Inkfests, feel free to contact me or another Inkipedia staff member. EminenceTalk 19:22, 17 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Inkfest, anyone? Chocolate vs. Vanilla

Hosting an Inkfest for the first time! I thought this through for a while and finally decided to do it! Here's the link to the page if you want to join/see the rules! Hope I at least get 5 people... :,) Oh, yeah, so sorry for having said I was doing this 3 different times, or something...I just need as many players as I can get.

I noticed that you said "North America time", but there are at least 4 different time zones in North America. You should probably say which one. Heddy (talk) 22:27, 17 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Oop, sorry. I forgot about that. I think it's the PDT time zone? (Thanks for telling me!) ArivakiVA (talk) 17:00, 18 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]

where to tell meta and combos

where to put this it's burst bomb combo with level one fizzy indirect or direct and a direct slosh from a curtain meta dominating weapon that may or may not already shoots thru walls this makes it more op FuN StAmPmOmEnT (talk) 19:33, 17 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I don't know whether it's necessary to add combos...maybe if you really want to you should put them in your user sandbox. I just don't think they should be added to an actual page...maybe ask someone on staff? They'll probably know. ArivakiVA (talk) 19:57, 17 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Saturating and deluminating the color to the same level as the in-game Ink color while maintaining the same hue helps with legibility somewhat, but there has to be a better solution.

Primarily-white weapon icons do not show up well against infoboxes with the current site color.

Maybe a dark outline around the icon. I don’t really like the suggested color. Besnhasthefun (talk) 13:18, 18 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Bringing this back up: Since Splatoon 3 has badges, we can use the badge icon in place of the current ones. The badge icons are far more legible in our use context. Makendo (talk) 11:40, 17 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Gear tabs

Currently, the tabs at the bottom of pages relating to headgear, clothing, and shoes are organized by amount of stars. This makes sense in the first two Splatoon games because the amount of stars can be changed, but in Splatoon 3, they can be increased, making the organization unhelpful. I think that we should change how they are organized. Besnhasthefun (talk) 11:37, 19 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]

That was my doing after a discussion with the Discord server, bearing in mind that the gear is listed in order of default stars, so in my opinion, the boxes are still useful for that. But we can consider it! GloverMist (talk) 17:06, 19 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I find this request/suggestion useful, however I do agree with @GloverMist on this one. Chrome Wolf (talk) 15:10, 23 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Rating

Considering how hard After Alterna is, do you think we should add a difficulty rating? Chrome Wolf🐺 (🎙). 02:14, 29 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Well I guess that’s a good idea, but because of all the skill differences and blah blah blah, maybe we shouldn’t, and with different weapons too. Also I’m pretty sure you were meant to post that in the Alterna page. Welp that’s my thoughts. Glitch♩ink (talk) 08:02, 29 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I was thinking of all of the hero mode (including Octo expansion) levels have a rating from 1 to 5 stars. Chrome Wolf🐺 (🎙|20px, 🗂). 13:25, 29 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I love the idea, however difficulty is generally an opinion. Like I know some people who struggled with the OE Octo Oven but I beat it first try.

Should we Have a Page for all Splatoon Lore and/or fan Speculations and Predictions?

So that all lore could be recorded in one spot so that you can see what events connect to each other. Wind Waker (talk) 14:46, 29 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I don’t think that’s a good idea. This wiki is about Splatoon facts, and very little lore. Fan speculation isn’t really necessary. OrderSquid38 Squid.jpeg OrderSquid38 *Chat* 15:07, 29 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Agreed, unless lore counts as Easter eggs.
Do they count? Chrome Wolf🐺 (🎙, 🗂). 15:13, 29 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
No, lore is a separate thing made mostly by fans OrderSquid38 Squid.jpeg OrderSquid38 *Chat* 15:24, 29 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
We’ll maybe not fan speculations then and just the actual story, instead of searching through tons of pages to find out about all the events and how they connect. Wind Waker (talk) 17:37, 29 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Actually, I dont think its a good idea to have a page about lore because its not “official”, the pages that covers that functions are the Sandbox and maybe the Blogs. You can make a page named “User:Wind Waker/Splatoon Lore” or something like that, that page would be completely yours and there you are able to add everything you want (at least everything that respects the Inkipedia Policy). Platelet✨(talk👌🏻) 21:01, 29 October 2022 (UTC)[reply]
From what i've experienced, lore is more facts and not fan-made or anything. Maybe the term is used wrong, but I've used the word lore for canon.

If your trying to figure out how to send photos from switch, go to your photos, then to your selected photo, then “send to Smartphone”, then you will get two QR codes, the first one is to connect to switch Wi-Fi (I believe), and the second goes to the link containing your photo/recording.

Inkling Language (Alterna Edition)

Seeing as how we have the Alterna script done, I'd like to say I think I made a discovery, but I don't have a full grip on what it says. So there's a sign in the end sequence of the main story, one of those little areas reminiscent of Octo Expansion's weapon select area (ah who am I kidding that whole campaign is based off of OE). It's the sign that looks like a warning, with a graphic of a person on it. It says some gibberish, but then it says "I wunt you fyr fluwh to moom". I'm assuming it says something like "I want you for fly to moon" but I don't really know. I would use an image but I don't have a capture card to show. I'm going to replay the end sequence to find some more stuff. Happy Splatoween btw! Rozelia The Octo06 (talk) 00:50, 1 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Using Pronouns instead of Genders

Hello all! I was reading through old talk/discussion pages when I came across Shiver's. (https://splatoonwiki.org/wiki/Talk:Shiver) @Slate had the idea to use pronouns instead of gender. Although there aren't characters that use pronouns other than their specified gender, it would be helpful in the future for if, or hopefully when there are characters who have pronouns other than he or she. Please, respond with your thoughts! Xandpochondria S3 Badge Toni Kensa 100.png 00:13, 4 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

It seems a bit less formal for a wiki, in my opinion. I mean, it's okay, but only if characters with other pronouns show up. That's just my opinion though. ArivakiVA S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png JPTGoldDynamoRoller.png 16:48, 4 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I say, no. It’s hard for that not to come across rude, because I don’t mean to be rude. Wind Waker (talk) 17:31, 4 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I don’t believe that would be necessary. Pronounced are preferences on how people want to be called, but I doubt it is needed on fictional characters. Dabbing-ChromeWolf.jpg Chrome Wolf S3 Big Man Render.png (🎙, 🗂). 16:14, 5 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Ok. I never really thought through what it would look like, just had the idea. Thanks for the constructive feedback! Xandpochondria S3 Badge Toni Kensa 100.png 21:45, 6 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Has it Been Confirmed who the “Prophet” was in the Alternea Logs?

I got no clue. Wind Waker (talk) 21:01, 4 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I don't think so. Should I check? ArivakiVA S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png JPTGoldDynamoRoller.png 21:15, 4 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Check where? It’s not in the wiki, but I dunno if Big N said anything Wind Waker (talk) 21:54, 4 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
No it has not been confirmed so far Dabbing-ChromeWolf.jpg Chrome Wolf S3 Big Man Render.png (🎙, 🗂). 16:15, 5 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I meant checking in-game, in case you wanted to know. I'll check today. ArivakiVA S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png JPTGoldDynamoRoller.png 18:04, 5 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Ya, I’ve gotten all the logs already, I just didn’t know if it was like a Tartar situation where they didn’t tell who the “professor “ was ingame, but announced later that it was Judd’s owner kinda thing. Wind Waker (talk) 12:38, 7 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
After doing some research on it, (cuz I can’t seem to beat After Alterna), still has not been confirmed in any of the logs, including log.exe. Dabbing-ChromeWolf.jpg Chrome Wolf S3 Big Man Render.png (🎙, 🗂). 14:34, 6 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

New template?

Should we create a template for a salmon run infobox? I mean, we already have one for Splatoon 3 and the Octo expansion. Jacobearth (talk) S3 Weapon Main L-3 Nozzlenose Flat.png S3 Weapon Main Classic Squiffer Flat.png 23:16, 6 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

We could! I'll try to if everyone agrees (and if I can find out how). I don't think it should take too long. ArivakiVA S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png JPTGoldDynamoRoller.png 19:03, 7 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks! That would make things a lot easier in the future when more Salmon Run content is released (i.e, new stages, Big Run, etc.). Jacobearth (talk) S3 Weapon Main L-3 Nozzlenose Flat.png S3 Weapon Main Classic Squiffer Flat.png 21:52, 7 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Ok, I'll just let you know now, it'll probably take a week or two...but I also have a really dumb question that I probably should've asked before accepting the job, what exactly do you mean by a Salmon Run infobox? Like, how is it different from any other infobox? Just asking, I'll probably be able to figure it out though. Thanks for the suggestion though! ArivakiVA S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png JPTGoldDynamoRoller.png 18:01, 8 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
You know how Splatoon 3 infoboxes all share the same color, right. Well I think that we should create a template/new color infoboxes universally so that all salmon run pages will have the same color instead of just sharing their color with the Splatoon 3 infobox templates. Jacobearth (talk) S3 Weapon Main L-3 Nozzlenose Flat.png S3 Weapon Main Classic Squiffer Flat.png 19:24, 8 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Oh, alright! Thank you for elaborating, and I'll make the template as soon as I can. (And I'll let you know when I'm finished!) ArivakiVA S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png JPTGoldDynamoRoller.png 19:38, 8 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you so much! Jacobearth (talk) S3 Weapon Main L-3 Nozzlenose Flat.png S3 Weapon Main Classic Squiffer Flat.png 23:04, 8 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Wait real quick, I think that there is not a necessary specific template for each color of infobox, instead there is site colors. I.E, there is an S3 site color for Splatoon 3. I could probably talk to an admin about adding a salmon run site color. Thank you for trying to help though!

This isn't a wiki-wide thing. If it affected the entire wiki or a whole lot of pages, then I feel that would be fine, but not two pages that need merged. Xandpochondria S3 Badge Toni Kensa 100.png 18:36, 11 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Doesn’t this go under the category “notices”? Wind Waker (talk) 18:12, 12 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
This would not be a notice suitable for this page. The statement at the top of the page is not meant to be understood as "to discuss the wiki as a whole... or post any notice I wish"; it's meant to be understood as "to discuss the wiki as a whole... including things such as notices that impact the wiki as a whole".
Furthermore, it's important for page move discussions to be under the applicable page, so that if someone reading an article wants to research why it was or was not moved, they can find that discussion on that article's talk page where they expect to find it.

Killer Wail 5.1 Card

I noticed that the Killer Wail 5.1 card was incorrect(see Tableturf Battle trivia for full details), so I put that into the trivia section. Is that ok? Thank you! Ink Me Up! (talk) 15:46, 14 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Seems fine! The subject itself counts as trivia. ArivakiVA S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png JPTGoldDynamoRoller.png 18:43, 14 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I do not think it is related trivia-wise.
I took a look at it, then at the list of cards, it has no problems, the illustrations are in the correct slots.
I don’t know if this has something to do with on your end, or if your just seeing things, but it may gut be been fixed. Dabbing-ChromeWolf.jpg Chrome Wolf S3 Big Man Render.png (🎙, 🗂). 20:55, 14 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
No, I mean the card art was wrong. The card is in the correct place, I was just wondering if it counted as trivia. Ink Me Up! (talk) 22:16, 14 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
What I mean is, the original card art was wrong. You have it archived and the illustrations are in the right places, but the original card art, the one the developers made, is incorrect. The Sloshing Machine's special is the Booyah Bomb, not the Killer Wail 5.1. I'm sorry if I made some confusion. Ink Me Up! (talk) 22:25, 14 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

The sloshing machine’s actual tableturf battle card’s in-game art features the killer wail 5.1like how it is in promotional before-release images, even though the sloshing machine’s special weapon is actually booyah bomb .

This is a known issue. It impacts all pages with a "/" in the title, such as "User:Chrome Wolf/Sandbox". The webmaster is researching possible fixes, but don't expect a fix soon.

For now, please use the source editor for all pages with a "/" in the title.
