how about we also show Splatoon 1 stages

example: turf war: now: blackbelly skatepark 8:00-12:00 camp triggerfish 8:00-12:00 Later: ancho-v games 12:00-4:00 flounder hieghts 12:00-4:00

Ranked battle: Now: pirahna pit 8:00-12:00 Bluefin Depot 8:00-12:00 later: Port Mackerel 12:00-4:00 Kelp Dome 12:00-4:00 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Vanno (talkcontribs) 15:53, 27 January 2019‎‎ (UTC)

It's no longer possible to show Splatoon 1 stage rotations, since there's no longer a source of real-time rotation data (as Nintendo shut down the original SplatNet service for Splatoon 1 on September 30, 2017). --Kaioora (talk) 19:34, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
What about somebody logging onto Splatoon and writing down the details of the stages? eleven23 (talk) 23:15, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
There is a bot on twitter that uploads Splatoon 1 maps in real time (see @Splatoon1Maps) but I have no idea how it works, and I don't know if it's able to show future rotations. Nonetheless, if someone here wants to contact the owner of the bot and see if we can get something working on the wiki, that may be helpful? ShinyCelesteela (talk) 01:39, 16 February 2019 (UTC)

Real-life references in Octo Expansion levels

You might already have noticed, but the stations in the Octo Expansion have references to real-life toys and other stuff. My idea was to put these references in the trivia section of each station's page, but I don't recognize most by name. I've found a Splatoon fan that named all these references, but unfortunately, they are in Japanese, and I can't understand it. So my question is, can someone read Japanese and give the English name of these references, or does someone recognize them by name? I leave the link to this fan's twitter post below.

Answer: I think you should be able to use Google Translate to either translate the page, or copy-and-paste them to the website. -OctoMan_26 13:45, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

French Inkipedia needs more articles

French Inkipedia has 93 articles, I feel like adding some more, but I don't know French. Is there an English/French person that can help edit the website? eleven23 (talk) 23:10, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

It's up to French speakers to add content to Inkipédia if they desire. This is none of our concern, as we are not French speakers. Heddy (talk) 15:30, 16 February 2019 (UTC)

Notice board problem

Notice problem.gif
It doesn't redirect to the page that marks it as read. I don't have this problem anymore, which is weird. Inkling project paintball font eleven23.png Inkling project paintball font eleven23 talk.png 06:28, 20 February 2019 (UTC)

I had that for a while when I first joined too, it just fixed itself. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Splattersky (talk) 08:21, 20 February 2019 (UTC)

Something new that we could test

We could create a page that is sort of like Ink Pump, but for suggestions, and maybe some unknown trivia. Here are some examples: Suggestion & Trivia. Inkling project paintball font eleven23.png Inkling project paintball font eleven23 talk.png 06:14, 20 February 2019 (UTC)

Do we not mention notable people/players on the wiki?

So while I was out on the internet, I saw this one video about the world's angriest Splatoon 2 Player that goes by the name of, "Putz12" and I'm curious if we cover notable people/players on this wiki. I'm not planning on writing a page about the guy, I'm just curious. AsrielTheInkling (talk) 07:19, 23 February 2019 (UTC)

Bit defunct, but see the Notability Policy.  KA467 🗩 🖿   11:25, 23 February 2019 (UTC)

I don't believe he's on any team. I've only watched one video about him. Putz12 is a Live Streamer on and I don't know about him playing the First Splatoon. I have read the page and I understand. Thanks! AsrielTheInkling (talk) 15:19, 23 February 2019 (UTC)

Weapons ranking

I think it's really good to get multiple opinions when figuring out your weapons, so here's a ranking of them for those who are new to the game (or maybe are just searching for a new weapon). Really informative, worth the read.

Murch & Sean ability tips

I have a few ideas about what to do with the tips (when they come out):

  • We could put each tip in a quote section
  • We could put it in the trivia
  • We could put it in the description, with some words omitted
  • If one of the sentences was 'I like cake and chocolate cake' we could omit 'cake and'.

April Fools...?

If I leave the page alone for too long, a GIF plays in the background for a few seconds. Is this an April Fool's prank, or is someone messing around? A Random Pencil (talk) 17:53, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

Judd's just excited for April Fools, that's all.  KA467 🗩 🖿   18:45, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

Spoiler alert on main page

I have a recollection that I asked this somewhere before, but since we are no longer adding spoiler alerts on every page, I think it would be decent to have a general disclaimer on the main page, so that users are warned. I know we have the spoiler policy bit, but that's pretty hard to get to, so I think a reminder on the main page would be helpful. Splattersky (talk) 23:45, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

Incorrect Splatfest Info

The main page says that the Splatfest is over, but the game says that it will be going on for another day. Can somebody please fix this? Warriorking98 (talk)

It doesn't say it's over on the main page for me, it just says "Now - (end time)". Maybe it's a glitch on your end? Splattersky (talk) 03:38, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
It doesn't have a way to set it for 48 hours and I'm not sure how to fix that. It should currently appear correctly, but only because we are within 24 hours of the end time. Heddy (talk) 10:02, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

Editing the main page

Just to be clear, anyone is welcome to make reasonable updates and additions to the news and Splatfest modules that show up on the main page. The locks in place before were only in place due to a spike in vandalism a long time ago, and those locks have been removed. Heddy (talk) 22:41, 13 May 2019 (UTC)


OMG YOU HAVE THE NOW OR NEVER FOR FINAL FEST NOW!!!! TAKE IT OFF TAKE IT OFF TAKE IT OOOOOOFFFFF!!!! (that was off not oof lol) Splatgoddess288 (talk) 13:22, 7 July 2019 (UTC)Splatgoddess288

This wiki's not a spoiler-free zone, so it'll probably be staying - see Inkipedia:Spoiler policy for more info. --Kaioora (talk) 19:57, 7 July 2019 (UTC)

Small change

Shouldn't the "SplatNet 2" icon on the main page use the actual SplatNet 2 icon for Annie instead of the icon from the Gamepad? ShinyCelesteela (talk) 10:05, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

Sorry for the late reply, but I've changed this now! Good shout, thanks for mentioning it. GloverMist (talk) 15:43, 30 July 2019 (UTC)

New poll

Ya need a 'which band is better: Squid Sisters or Off the Hook poll here. IDK how to make 'em, so don't ask me to do it. Sanei Inkling Squid pink plush.jpg SquiddyGirlSanei Inkling Squid pink plush.jpgTalk 20:14, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

There's a "suggest a poll link" right below the poll, use that instead, and User:Eleven23 is the one that adds the polls. Besides, although not exactly the same, Callie vs. Marie vs. Pearl vs. Marina was one of the first polls added after polls were brought back, and even the current poll is a very similar premise too.  KA467 🗩 🖿   20:39, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

Who updates the news feed?

I don't know, and I want to know because I want to add news too! -Agent 13 of the New Squidbeak Splatoon SSBU Octoling Octopus Spirit.png 16:26, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

I want to translate the content of this wiki into Spanish!

Hi! I'm Mikolapizero and I'm a native spanish speaker. I saw that Inkipedia has her own site in French, and I'm wondering If I can do the same, but in spanish. I'm not a master at english, but I can translate a lot of text from english to my language. How I do that? I can? Thanks! - Mikolapizero (talk) 20:17, 23 July 2019 (UTC)

There must be significant interest in a Spanish language wiki before one could be set up. I suggest making the translated pages in your userspace first, and then maybe a Spanish wiki can be set up if there's interest. To create a userspace page, you would create a page like "User:Mikolapizero/Page title" for each page you are translating. Heddy (talk) 21:36, 23 July 2019 (UTC)

Should we remove the Splatfest section?

Since there's no more Splatfests happening in Splatoon 2, there's no reason to have the Splatfest section there anymore.

I think we should. I mean, I don't see any reason for it to stay on the page, at least not until Splatoon 3 is confirmed (if it even will be confirmed) and all of that kind of stuff is needed again. --SundaeSquidS Weapon Main Octobrush.pngTalk 09:14, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
I agree with the removal of the Splatfest widget, I think appropriate date for the removal should be two months after the results of the final fest: 21 August 2019. ShaharSig2.pngShaharSigtalk2.png 13:58, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
Yep, sounds like a plan to me! GloverMist (talk) 15:45, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
Done! ShaharSig2.pngShaharSigtalk2.png 11:44, 21 August 2019 (UTC)
Did you remove it? It still appears on my page...Callieplayz279 (talk) 19:16, 15 September 2019 (UTC)callieplayz279Callieplayz279 (talk) 19:16, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
The Splatfest widget has been removed from the Main Page, yes. What do you see displayed? As a side note, if you want to sign your name on talk pages, simply end with four ~ symbols in a row and nothing else, and it should appear like mine! GloverMist (talk) 19:57, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
Sorry about that. I'm new to this! The splafest thingy appears with the Off The Hook Splatfests sign, and nothing else. Thank you for actually answering my question, too!Callieplayz279 (talk) 22:20, 15 September 2019 (UTC)callieplayz279

pictures please

I kinda feel like there should be more pics for agent 3. Not to be mean or anything, but I feel like they are one of the important characters. Callieplayz279 (talk) 19:02, 15 September 2019 (UTC)callieplayz278Callieplayz279 (talk) 19:02, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
