Weapon Demonstration Videos for Splatoon 3

Are we allowed to make short 30-second clips on switch demonstrating each weapon in the game and what it can do? If so, I'd like to make some to contribute! Just wanted to make sure it was ok first. HalfSanitized (talk) 16:03, 4 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

We actually used to do this for S2 and S1 and those were youtube videos created by either an inkipedia user or the inkipedia youtube channel. I think it will be fine to make videos for demonstrating the weapon, but it will probably have to be longer than 30 seconds.

Oh, fair enough. I'll see if I can make some short ones. The ones I'm talking about though wouldn't be like a step to step guide, but more of just a sneak peek at what the weapon does HalfSanitized (talk) 17:36, 4 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Inkipedia es and fr

Why is there no mention of Inkipedia es or fr on the main page at all? Freddie (talk) 19:40, 4 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes there is, in the sidebar. They're below the “In other languages” OrderSquid38 New Squid.jpg OrderSquid38 *Chat* 21:13, 4 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The sidebar does not exist in mobile Freddie (talk) 07:46, 5 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Idk what device you're on but it works for me OrderSquid38 New Squid.jpg OrderSquid38 *Chat* 12:10, 5 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, It might depend on what device you're using because I can also see the other languages options DJ Opaltavio (talk) 17:32, 5 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
On an iPhone no sidebar at all for some reason Freddie (talk) 18:30, 5 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
To access the sidebar on iPhone and other mobile device, you have to press the hamburger button in the top left corner. Note that the "in other languages" menu is not part of the sidebar on mobile. To access "in other languages" on mobile, look for the button at the top right of the page; the button has the letter A and a Chinese-looking letter.

Should we make a countdown

This was talked about in an old discussion page but I think now that we have special fests we should add a countdown to things like big run and challenges and splatfests FryedSoda (talk) 17:38, 13 September 2023 (UTC) FryedSoda (talk) 17:28, 13 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@FryedSoda Hey! I was wondering if you could elaborate a bit more on your point so we could implement your idea on the main page. Thanks! Xando talk 12:16, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
We have countdowns for Splatfests... I think so. Ma-Ran-rieS3 Icon Marie.png 13:03, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
We used to have a countdown for Splatfests, but it was removed to make the Main Page less cluttered. Perhaps a countdown could be implemented into the schedule templates for events. EminenceTalk 13:10, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Am I missing something? We do for Big Run Alert and Splatfest Schedule. There's not an active countdown clock of like, the seconds ticking down because generally speaking that is expensive to pull off and MediaWiki doesn't have a lot of good options when it comes to live counter sorts of things. Given how advanced the main page already is, I would be extremely hesitant to add more to that equation. Trig - 13:12, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yeah, that's a factor too. EminenceTalk 13:14, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
yeah that was what i was saying, maybe we could do it for 1 hour before the event so its easier to make FryedSoda (talk) 13:47, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
and it would be on the fest page FryedSoda (talk) 13:47, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
not the main page, i agree that that would be too much on the main FryedSoda (talk) 13:51, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
? A timer on the Splatfest page aswell? Ma-Ran-rieS3 Icon Marie.png 14:41, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
not aswell, just on the fest page FryedSoda (talk) 17:34, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
So, what i'm picking up from this, you said you wanted a timer specifically just for the Splatfest page... no timer on the Main Page? Or do you want a timer on the Splatfest page, similar to the Main Page Splatfest timer, alongside the Main Page timer? Ma-Ran-rieS3 Icon Marie.png 18:13, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
yes, just for the splatfest page FryedSoda (talk) 18:44, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
sorry if i'm being a bit confusing FryedSoda (talk) 17:38, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Splatoon Stages

We have the stages for S2 and S3 on the main page but not for S1... Should we add a Main Page/S1? I would personally like it but would not be able to run it.

Okay I just learned that the pages use SplatNet to access the current stages so doing that now is probably not feasible. However, does anybody know of a way (other than it being manually updated which obviously wouldn't work)? Cuttlfish59 (talk) 19:20, 24 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oatmealdome's JelonzoBot has upcoming and current Splatoon 1 rotations, but I'm not sure if anyone is interested in implementing that. XarrotD (talk) 03:28, 25 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Should we ask him? Cuttlfish59 (talk) 17:26, 25 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
