DONT MOVE THIS TO LOOT ANCHOR!

REASON: It contains the location of treasures NOT in loot anchors as well, otherwise I would have put it there. Wind Waker (talk) 18:53, 9 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Just saying, you might wanna tell an admin directly about this, if it's really urgent. Just in case! ArivakiVA S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png JPTGoldDynamoRoller.png 18:54, 9 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Oh, and by the way, I don't think I should add the construction template until it's assured that this won't be moved to loot anchors. ArivakiVA S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png JPTGoldDynamoRoller.png 18:55, 9 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
How do I tell an admin? I’m REALLY new here.
Thanks for the help! Wind Waker (talk) 19:09, 9 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
On the very left of any page, underneath Inkipedia's logo, there are different categories on the site. Under 'Community' there is a page titled 'Staff'. Click on it, then scroll to the category of admins. Click on any admin (I suggest Heddy, he's the quickest to respond to things), and go to their talk page. Click 'create a new topic' then ask away! You're welcome, by the way. :) ArivakiVA S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png JPTGoldDynamoRoller.png 19:28, 9 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Hello, I’ve seen the message now! I still believe that this doesn’t warrant a page of its own, so if it includes collectables that aren’t loot anchors, then the content should at least be split between the loot anchor page and each sector’s page. May be a good compromise, and similar to previous single-player modes. GloverMist (talk) 21:22, 9 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Then I’d have to restart my whole Alterna thing to find out which ones are anchors and which ones aren’t. There’s a lot of stuff in Alterna, so I don’t see why it couldn’t be it’s own page.
Thanks anyway. Wind Waker (talk) 21:26, 9 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I think just moving it to each locations page is the best idea, although a list of loot anchors is a good idea too, i can help get images/screenshots for either project as im currently starting the story mode again to add various types of information to ROTM articles in large, loot anchor/other item spots included (also i think images of the spots from the players point of veiw is a good idea).

I have a lot more pictures already, and am prepared and excited to work on an important project like this, though if you are re-starting story mode, perhaps you can do re-do sector 01 and find out which ones are anchors, and which ones aren’t, then I can do the rest, or we could both work on different sectors. I say we wait till GloverMist responds before we start though. Wind Waker (talk) 16:23, 10 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Why can't we move loot anchor stuff here and add a redirect? Isn't loot 'treasure'? Xandpochondria S3 Badge Toni Kensa 100.png 14:57, 12 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Loot anchors are the actual names of these things. I think the loot anchor page should be expanded and the locations of them that are in this page should be moved over OrderSquid38 Squid.jpeg OrderSquid38 *Chat* 15:48, 12 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Ok that's fine honestly. I'm glad you're actually providing solutions and not uselessly arguing about saving this page or whatever. Xandpochondria S3 Badge Toni Kensa 100.png 16:03, 12 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Y’know, that was a useless comment. Idk why you’ve got a grudge against me, but chill. Wind Waker (talk) 17:42, 12 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
And here’s the deal, when someone is wiking where to find the collectibles, they shouldn’t have to go to the loot anchor page, then look for ANOTHER page to find the non-loot anchor collectibles. You see what I’m saying? They should both be in the same spot I believe. Wind Waker (talk) 17:46, 12 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
First off: I believe you have good intentions, but you are not going about it in the best way - you openly admitted to using the ink pump wrong and are trying to save this page with no reasonable evidence for saving said page. Second: if you want stuff to be in one spot, why don't you want stuff merged? Regards, Xandpochondria S3 Badge Toni Kensa 100.png 17:57, 12 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
1 I did not admit I used ink pump wrong, I said I used it rightly (sorry for confusion).
2 I don’t want it merged with loot anchor because it has collectibles listed that AREN’T contained in loot anchors. Wind Waker (talk) 18:09, 12 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
1) You quoted the text on ink pump saying:
"the Ink Pump serves as a general place for the Inkipedia community to discuss the wiki as a whole, whether it be ideas, proposals, technical issues, or notices”
than said that your little discussion for these pages was fine on there.
2) Check these conflicting statements:
"And here’s the deal, when someone is wiking where to find the collectibles, they shouldn’t have to go to the loot anchor page, then look for ANOTHER page to find the non-loot anchor collectibles. You see what I’m saying? They should both be in the same spot I believe."
"I don’t want it merged with loot anchor because it has collectibles listed that AREN’T contained in loot anchors"

1Those don’t conflict. Some collectibles aren’t anchors, so they shouldn’t go under anchors, and we shouldn’t split them up. SO, we keep them on their own page separate from loot anchor. Plain and simple. Both anchor collectibles and non-anchor collectibles on the same page. So we don’t have non-anchor items on the anchor page, AND we have all items in the same place. Make sense now?
2 My comment on Ink pump goes under the category of “notices” Wind Waker (talk) 19:36, 12 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Btw, when I said “we shouldn’t split them up” I meant we shouldn’t split up anchor items, and non-anchor items. Didn’t want any confusion here. Wind Waker (talk) 19:39, 12 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Uh, not to be that really annoying person, I do mean this in all-due respect, but @Xandpochondria-san, @Wind Waker-san, could the two of you please be a bit more polite? No offense, but you two seem to be acting a bit...critical. Just saying! Sorry! ArivakiVA S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png JPTGoldDynamoRoller.png 21:49, 12 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Question, why’d you put ‘San’ in?
Also, sorry Xan if I came off as rude, I’m just trying to prove my point. Wind Waker (talk) 23:47, 12 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Oh, I'm part Japanese, thus why I put '-san' n! It's supposed to be a polite honorific. :) ArivakiVA S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png JPTGoldDynamoRoller.png 18:34, 13 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Sorry, I meant *in, not *n. My typing sucks today. Anyway, I get that you were just trying to prove a point, I just wanted to make sure you didn't come off as too rude. It happens to me a lot.

Gotchya, thanks for looking out for me Wind Waker (talk) 13:35, 14 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
You're welcome, friend! ArivakiVA S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png JPTGoldDynamoRoller.png 18:44, 14 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Should we change this page for another use?

I've seen the discussion above talking about moving this to loot anchor. And that's fine with me. However, there's something I'd like to mention. When I first searched this page I thought it was about the treasures you get after beating the deep cut bosses. These are really minor things in story mode but I suggest to change this entire page to that topic, if the treasures are important enough to be its own page.

I can change the name, I actually realized that this morning Wind Waker (talk) 17:41, 12 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Perhaps replace treasure with items, or collectibles Wind Waker (talk) 23:48, 12 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I think collectibles is good! ArivakiVA S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png JPTGoldDynamoRoller.png 18:40, 13 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
