Shouldn't the Zelda Wiki link be called Zeldapedia

Title pretty much sums it up. It's also the only one to not have an icon by the name. I didn't know if there was a reason why it's like this. DaRootBeer1231 (talk) 04:33, 1 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Probably, I think the name only recently changed when they became independent again. Lyichir (talk) 14:15, 1 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Fuzzy Icon

We need the fuzzy ooze icon on the fuzzy ooze page. It's shown in-game Callie's dialog. PS. We need inkwheel pics on it's page. Kensa Octo brush (talk) 05:13, 1 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Is that during the tutorial?
if so i can go and find it later (althought it can probably be datamined/pulled out of the game files)
And ill add the ink wheel images when i have time, thanks for pointing this out! LakePuddleΒ πŸ—©Β πŸ–‰ 16:08, 2 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Adding stages and Polls back

Are we going to bring back stages, polls, Splatnet 3 shop items, etc? I'm new to wikis so I'm not sure how to do this myself. Thoughts? Woomy? (talk) signature signature 23:04, 4 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You are allowed to start them if you'd like, but no one has motivation (especially for polls, Shahar had to pester people constantly to do those). Xandpochondria S3 Badge Toni Kensa 100.png 18:25, 8 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
So how would we go about making a poll? Do we just go to the page, or do we have to do anything before? I would definitely like to make one, but I've never done one so if you could explain it I would be grateful! Stay fresh!

okay so im assuming we ALL know who deadf1sh is. this is about her song, 14- crush. in the song it sounds all happy and cheerful, right? well the song has noises from what im assuming are the octarian army. this might be what she remembers from before getting sanitized because the song right after that, 16- salty, sounds terrifying. it sounds like what you would assume being sanitized would sound like. this might be me coming to conclusions but still.

Hello! I'm sorry to be the one letting you know, but this talk page is for discussing improvements to the main page, such as fixing bugs or issues. Comments or observations like this should be reserved for your sandbox or your user page. This is a very cool theory though, and I love your name! Thank you! ArivakiVA S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png JPTGoldDynamoRoller.png 17:58, 9 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That sounds about right cuz Sanitization's basically like losing ur free will, so Dedf1sh must have gone through a lot of pain. The things that I'm thinking is that all the songs are from different parts of her life. the missing song numbers could of been left out cuz she can't remember what happend then. And that explains why 2 songs are missing after 14# Crush. That was when she got sanatized.
Just sayin' but this should be in your user/sandbox page. Cool theory, tho.Β :) Lil' Octoling (talk) 11:46, 24 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


you know how there was a countdown to the release of Splatoon 3 on the main page? what if we added a countdown to the splatfest part too? that way it'd be easier for people to know when it is without having to worry about all that time zone translation madness.

Adalent (talk) 00:19, 11 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

While having a one-time zone countdown would be nice, there are so many different time zones and many people in different countries that having a single countdown would not work. Having "time zone translation madness" isn't the right way to put it since many people view Inkipedia from all around the globe, and therefore it would be necessary for everyone to have their time zone added. For example, say that for me it is 1:00 am and for you it is 3:00 pm. This means we are in different days and our countdown would not be the same. That's why time zones are so imperative to a countdown. One would simply not be sufficient. Sorry, I hope this helped! Have a nice day!
Frye 2D.pngClarinet.octo Marina 2D.png (talk)Marie official artwork.png 00:33, 11 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Also what do you mean by one Splatfest countdown? Viewing of the time can be seen when you go to the kiosk for your team. We did have a Splatfest countdown, but there were many time zones. Sorry about the repetitive responses!
Frye 2D.pngClarinet.octo Marina 2D.png (talk)Marie official artwork.png 00:35, 11 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Let's say we'd do one, it would be in the one time zone that all wikis use: UTC. The same thing was with the Splatoon 3 countdown- it used utc. If a person so desperately needs to know when a splatfest is, then they could look up the utc to their time zone, because they are online if they're even on the site. Xandpochondria S3 Badge Toni Kensa 100.png 00:53, 11 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That's a more clear summary of what I was trying to say. Thank you for clearing that part up! I think bringing back the Splatfest countdown would be a great idea! I have no experience with anything like that so someone with experience would most likely have a good shot at it. I still wouldn't want to put pressure on anyone to do it.
Frye 2D.pngClarinet.octo Marina 2D.png (talk)Marie official artwork.png 01:50, 11 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
But all regions are having the splatfest simultaneously, you'd only need one countdown timer
Adalent (talk) 03:54, 11 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm not sure that's true, though. My Splatfest time started two hours after the clock on the page. I'm sure we can just keep the Splatfest countdown as the date. I agree we should just wait and see.
Frye 2D.pngClarinet.octo Marina 2D.png (talk)Marie official artwork.png 18:54, 12 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
We wouldn't need a time zone, for example, the timer says "5 hours and 30 minutes left" that's not specific to any zone, but is universal to all. Wind Waker (talk) 17:57, 11 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
And that's even if anyone is gonna check it. I'm not convinced we need a countdown. Xandpochondria S3 Badge Toni Kensa 100.png 18:35, 11 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'd check it. I hate having to figure out when it is in my time zone, and apparently I'm not the only one. Wind Waker (talk) 20:18, 11 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
lets maybe wait until next splatfest to set it up though, seeing as this one starts in 2 hours

Image problems

I am putting this here 'Cause I don't know where else to put it.

This is a problem. I'm am trying to get images to my Third Sandbox. Link:User:Splat.girl/Sandbox 3.If the problem that I'm having works here then that's a big problem cause when I do it on my Sandbox 3 it does not work. I can show an example here: I will be trying a pic of evil Callie and this is what happens: S2 evil callie.jpg. That's the code for it but when I put it my Sandbox (3) it only shows the code not the pic. Thank you. ~~Splat.girl~~ Splat.girl (talk) 13:42, 13 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello! Do you put [[File:S2 evil Callie.jpg]] Or do you leave the file part out? Putting it like how I showed would be the way it will come up. Can you describe the problem a little more? Also not sure if this is the right place to put this. Maybe the Inkipedia talk:Ink Pump.

First, that isn't really what the wiki is about. It has to do with more of with in-game things and not people who play that game. There was a more fleshed-out response from an admin that was on here but I'm not sure where.

"We have 2,803 articles since 24 May 2015 and you can help by editing them!"

Although the sentance above looks gramatically correct, I don't think it's the best mainpage subtitle possible. I propose something along the lines of

"Thank you for contributing towards our 2,803 articles since May 24, 2015!"

Thoughts? -Xan S2 Brand Toni Kensa.png S3 Splatfest Icon Spicy.png 02:11, 18 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Good idea!! I think something like "We have created 2,807 articles since May 24 2015, and you can help contribute to them!" sounds better.

Do you mean that we make this page (or a copy) in a Japanese version? It does seem fitting as Nintendo is more or less a Japan originated franchise, but making that would most likely be a lot bigger than a few people knowing basic Japanese. Maybe this would be a good idea to utilize your Sandbox? I would love to help out with this idea if it does ever become a reality.

Salmon run: next wave schedule bug (within Main Page/S3) - does not show Big Runs, might break during the Big Run

(yes, I know, Main Page/Big Run does show the upcoming Big Run so this is a bit of a moot point, but documenting this bug anyway in case it causes issues during the Big Run) Anyway, as mentioned in the title, the automated Salmon Run: Next Wave schedule thing within Main Page/S3 does not appear to show Big Runs. It shows the current rotation, and the rotation that'll be up after the Big Run, but not the Big Run.

Seeing as that element in that page is an <splatoon3salmon /> element, and idk where the source code for it actually is so I can't take a look around it for myself, it might be worth taking a look at it to fix the bug if you do know where the code for it actually is.
