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)

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=]]

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)
Thanks! ZBroadcast (talk) 4:08, 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)


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)

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)
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)
