How do you add pictures?

I’m new to Inkipedia and I am on mobile, is it possible to add pictures on mobile and if so how?IronPuppy3 (talk) 15:44, 24 June 2020 (UTC)

If you scroll to the bottom of a page, there should be a link that says “desktop” or “mobile view”. If it says “mobile view” there, you are in the right place. If it says “desktop”, click the link and it should bring up a completely different view of the page. On the left is a list of links, and the third from the bottom will say “upload file”. Click the link and it will bring you to a new page. There should be “choose file” button, click that and it should bring up your photos, (or whatever you use if you use an android or something) after that it’s relatively self explanatory. If you need anything else (or if this is too long) just contact me again. I’m still here unless I am not, FLAME1232S2 Weapon Main Hero Roller Lv. 2.png(Talk) 20:17, 24 June 2020 (UTC)

Thank you! IronPuppy3 (talk) 13:20, 25 June 2020 (UTC)

Questions about Agents&The main page news

Why do people make agt 3 not a teen agt 4 is 18 and should be the not childish one and agt 8 should be looking around and stuff (Mipha (talk) 22:50, 28 July 2020 (UTC)) Mipha

You should add that callie and marie costumes are beaung added to super smash bros ultimate on the main page (Mipha (talk) 22:57, 28 July 2020 (UTC)) Mipha
How and where is agent 3 childish? Is this just manga and stuff or fanfic or did I just miss a huge part of the story? (Actually, it can be debated wether agent 3 is 18 or not. It is possible that Marie’s comment is just another whopping fourth wall breaker) And also I think that that might have been added at some point, but it’s been a month. FLAME1232S2 Weapon Main Hero Roller Lv. 2.png(Talk) 23:52, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

YouTube has it (Mipha (talk)) Mipha Also how do i add pages (Mipha (talk)) Mipha

Can't access top right menu

I can't access the drop down menus on my user name on the top right of the page! Is there a problem? Does anyone else have this problem? P.J. GT (talk) 17:58, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

What exactly do you mean by drop down menus? If you're talking about the alerts and notices icons I can still access those. I don't know what other drop down menus you could be talking about. Inkling luke.png Inkling talk.png 20:29, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
I think he is talking about the mobile view drop down menu when you click on your user name. If that is what he is speaking of, then I am having this problem too. FLAME1232S2 Weapon Main Hero Roller Lv. 2.png(Talk) 20:32, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
Right! I tested on Safari on my phone and it worked fine but when I switched to mobile view on my computer it didn't. Will pass on to Prod to see what's up. The wiki just upgraded to a new version so hiccups are expected. Thanks! Inkling luke.png Inkling talk.png 20:42, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

Yes, it is Flame. PS: Just to let you know, the web browser I use is Google Chrome. P.J. GT (talk) 21:11, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

Still can't access Alerts and notices! P.J. GT (talk) 21:42, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

Everything should at least partially work now. You may have to wait a couple minutes for the fix to start working. Fumple (talk) 22:27, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

A number of weapons are not included in the Splatoon 2 graphs on the Ink Saver (Main) Page.

link to the page here. The weapons not included on the ink consumption graphs are:

On the "Shooters" graph: Squeezer, Glooga Dualies

On the "Slosher/Brella/Blaster" graph: Explosher, Bloblobber

On the "Chargers/Splatlings" graph: Nautilus 47

Will somebody with the know-how please get on this? Thank you.

AilingSword75 (talk) 09:15, 9 July 2020 (UTC)

Okay, I'll make some new graphs when I can. Heddy (talk) 05:17, 10 July 2020 (UTC)

Policy change: notability of people

Notability is now defined for real people! The notability policy now determines which people can have their own Inkipedia article. Please comment if you have any ideas for improving this policy. Heddy (talk) 05:18, 5 August 2020 (UTC)

Infobox Colors help!

I'm struggling with finding new Infobox colors. Can someone please show me a template and a list of all the colors? Thanks. P.J. GT (talk) 18:41, 6 August 2020 (UTC)

Famitsu Guide Renders

Splatoon 2 Shielded Octotrooper variant.png
S2 3D art Snatcher.png

Any chance that someone happened to have the Guidebook that these renders originate from? Was wondering if there were any left. ZBroadcast (talk) 15:02, 11 August 2020 (UTC)

Should there be a page for Rider?

So I was looking for ways to help the wiki, and saw that there was no Rider page (Manga). I looked at it’s history and saw it was deleted a while ago, I have the first volume of the Manga and I think I could maybe help?Sliverslider (talk) 23:45, 17 August 2020 (UTC)

If Rider is one of the main characters then I don't see why not. you can create a draft, and move it to the main article space once it's ready. Create your draft at User:YourUsername/Draft (you can replace "Draft" with a different name). ShaharSig2.pngShaharSigtalk2.png 21:30, 18 August 2020 (UTC)
I see that Rider is already covered on the list of Splatoon manga characters. Is Rider significant enough to have his own article? Is there enough content to write paragraphs about his personality, beliefs, appearance, behavior, history, character development, etc.? Heddy (talk) 01:20, 19 August 2020 (UTC)

Hey veemos

Strategy pages - ability loadouts

Me and a few others have noticed hostility and unnecessary conflict over recommended abilities on the strategy pages.

To eliminate conflict and better serve readers, I propose that we stop recommending individual abilities and instead have a short list of ability loadouts from Top 500 players and tournament-winning players, each with a citation to support its inclusion on the page. Heddy (talk) 23:01, 3 September 2020 (UTC)

I've written a new format on the Splattershot Jr. strategy page. The idea is that ALL abilities can be added there, not just a few. If some abilities are more optimal than others, it can be written in that section why they are better, with details on strategy and effectiveness in combination with the weapon. This way, there should not be fighting over what abilities are listed, as we can simply list all of them if editors desire. Heddy (talk) 19:01, 9 September 2020 (UTC)

Someone have and idea for stop this? Splatoon635 (talk) 18:52, 8 September 2020 (UTC)

Octo canyon

I have been noticing that most of the octo canyon areas/levels are incomplete. I was wondering if anyone could work on that. Thanks SQUIDKID2000 (talk) 17:16, 14 September 2020 (UTC)

User MoogicalShep is currently working on this. xmplr S2 Brand Takoroka.png (tlkr) 17:33, 14 September 2020 (UTC)

Trivia policy proposal

I've written a policy proposal, mostly copied from KHWiki. See Inkipedia:Trivia policy. Hopefully it can serve as a useful guideline for what qualifies as trivia, and how to keep facts more organized. Please leave any feedback on the trivia policy talk page!

Goodbye Inkipedia...

Goodbye everyone, im going from Inkipedia, I'm not have a reason for being here, all the users revert my edits without say me first, i only want to help and the users doesn't see that, so im going. Splat635 14:40, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

It can be frustrating to have your changes reverted, but that is the nature of wikis. Inkipedia is a collaborative effort where editors are expected to boldly make changes without asking permission first. When someone reverts your edit, they will leave a reason in the edit summary. Heddy (talk) 17:04, 12 October 2020 (UTC)
Don't get so worked up because of one revision. Eminence S2 Brand Takoroka.png (Chatter) 18:00, 12 October 2020 (UTC)
Try to accept criticism even if it doesn't align with your point of view. ShaharSig2.pngShaharSigtalk2.png 18:20, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

Yeah, maybe ask them why they removed your changes on their talk pages [[User: Octo1Octo1]] (Octo1)

Help on notifications

Hi! I just joined the wiki a couple days ago. There's this one notification which welcomes you to the wiki, it just doesn't get marked read. I've even tried going to my desktop from my usual mobile, and it's really bugging me. Can someone please give a hand? Yawshi Fan (talk) 13:33, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

I will tell you how to stop that on your talk page SquidKid2000 :P(Talk) (talk) 17:10, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
Now it's even better, with another stubborn message, celebrating my 10th edit. Probably not just the welcome message.
And no SQUIDKID2000, it did not work.

Yawshi Fan (talk) 23:12, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

K, sorry bout that. SquidKid2000-_-||(Talking) (talk) 17:19, 23 October 2020 (UTC)

Can manga characters have their own page?

So I looked at one of the surveys on the theme of improvements and the winner was characters.sorry if this is short.(ps ill do Gloves and Prince:) )

Thanks in advance Prinz is best boi (talk) 17:50, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

Yes, any official topic in the Splatoon universe can have an article. Manga characters are listed at list of Splatoon manga characters, and some of the notable characters have their own article. Heddy (talk) 23:44, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

Should we help the reader with Inner Agent 3?

Should we add strategies on how to beat the phases of Inner Agent 3 with the description? The reader might not be able to find a way to defeat Inner Agent 3 themselves, and they might not be able to watch YouTube to get advice. It was super hard to do it all myself and make strategies of my own to defeat him. I just got the Golden Toothpick last Sunday, and I worked more than a month on it. (inkluding weekdays) The reader might not have that much time though. Also, I can help if its a yes! :D User:Octo1 Talk Octo1Octo1 (talk) 17:35, 22 October 2020 (UTC)

I agree, and it's not just Inner Agent 3, a lot of pages with in game tips and advice have them in more hidden spots. Careless readers may miss them very easily. I think these tips should be put in more obvious places, and possibly refer them to sections in the main section. You can see what I did in the Flyfish page. I know I don't have much authority as I have just joined the wiki, but I really think this would be great for a change. Yawshi Fan (talk) 05:04, 24 October 2020 (UTC)
It looks like there's already a few tips there. If you see room for improvement, be bold and make some edits! Heddy (talk) 23:41, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

Is this a quality article

So on the lego fandom wiki they have these badges to denote the quality of a page (example,1 is a stub with poor grammar,no images,and next to no text,while a five is a perfect article,) Can we do this??? Prinz is best boi (talk) 10:36, 23 October 2020 (UTC)

Yeah, ratings seems nice as it allows us to focus on less developed pages. However a lot of effort has to be put into this tho. Yawshi Fan (talk) 05:06, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

Just put 1 for every octo canyon phase XD Prinz is best boi (talk) 10:56, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

Ratings systems make sense for large projects like Brickipedia and Wikipedia, because they have many articles and many contributors. It would be a lot of work just to set up the criteria and rate the articles.

Currently, we use tags like {{stub}} and {{todo}} and others to keep track of what needs improvements. Before considering using a rating system, I suggest that you use our maintenance tags. After all, why consider changing Inkipedia if you have not attempted to use the system we already have in place? Heddy (talk) 23:56, 24 October 2020 (UTC)
