Should we have a translation team?

Hello, I was thinking that we should have a translation team for the website, but if there is already a team, then how can I join. Thanks. :). My user name is RessescupsRessescups (talk) 18:37, 5 January 2021 (UTC)

There is no team as such, but if you see any untranslated content on the site then please feel free to translate it. Thanks, Luke26 (talk) 18:46, 5 January 2021 (UTC)
Also, we need to complete the French version of Inkipedia. Since I don't know how to speak French, can someone else translate it? Thanks! dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 19:47, 4 March 2021 (UTC)

How do I get Barnsquids?

Hi. As I was looking at talk pages, I saw these things called Barnsquids and I wanted to know how to award and receive them. Thanks!Ressescups (talk) 16:35, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

You can award them yourself I thinkChessMaster [TALK] 17:05, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

Anyone can give them to others or use them on their own page. See Template:Barnsquids for usage info. In the future please use Ink Pump, as this talk page is meant for talking about the Main Page. Heddy (talk) 18:19, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

weapon of the day

Should we have the "weapon of the day" from just a random generator or from Callie--Ressescups (talk) 20:12, 13 January 2021 (UTC)

That is a good idea, maybe bring it up on the ink pump--Astor Astor.pngWIKI!!! 15:17, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
We should! Sploon2 (talk) 15:42, 19 October 2021 (UTC)

Honestly in my opinion I think That would be a very smart choice. Splatto 17:49, 11 June 2021 (UTC)

-I think we should have 2 weapons of the day, showing callie's choice and the most used weapon for today. Also maybe include most often recommended weapons too Zelda+Splatoon2 (talk) 20:10, 26 November 2021 (UTC)

Stage schedule error issue.

Sometimes when a lot of stage rotations have passed on the Main Page's schedule, when I try to refresh the page to find what stages are next when both say "Previous" on their times, it says "Now" and/or "Next, in Hr.:Min.:Sec." for one frame then changing to "Previous" again. I can fix this by "Purging the page" FYI. I'm just asking if this is a problem for multiple people and can it be fixed outside of page purging? Thanks. P.J. GT (talk) 04:21, 6 February 2021 (UTC)

We're aware of the issue and are looking into it. Apologies for the inconvenience! Luke26 (talk) 13:40, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
The problem should be fixed now, but please report back if it returns. Thanks! Luke26 (talk) 22:30, 6 February 2021 (UTC)

It’s happening again. P.J. GT (talk) 18:50, 12 March 2021 (UTC)


Me and Flame actually started the movement for weapon strategies, so I wanted to thank everyone who participated! Also thanks to whoever mentioned it in the news!

Gear Stores

Should we have the current gear in the Gear Stores? (Shella Fresh, Headspace, Ye Olde Cloth Shoppe) dedf1sh07 (talk) 01:01, 22 February 2021 (UTC)

@dedf1sh07: The gear in stores (other than the SplatNet shop) is different for everyone, so it is not possible to add that to the main page. Heddy (talk) 04:56, 24 February 2021 (UTC)
I didn't know, that but ok. dedf1sh07 (talk) 05:50, 24 February 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, according to the level article, specific levels unlock two-star and three-star gear, so not all players get the same gear due to some players having a low level. On top of the level stuff, I think Nintendo also randomizes the available gear per-person, so even if two players have the same level, they will still not have the same gear in the shops. Heddy (talk) 06:05, 24 February 2021 (UTC)


Had an idea called inkling of the week, kinda like iotm. Instead of that, i could write a small thing on exeptional inklings helping on inkipedia. i wont be biased, tell me what you think!Squid400 (talk) 18:17, 8 March 2021 (UTC)

How would that work? Timewip2020 (talk) 05:30, 10 March 2021 (UTC)
@Timewip2020 The main conversation is here. dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 06:44, 10 March 2021 (UTC)

How can I help add information to Splatoon 3?

Hello, I'm HalfSanitized, and I'm fairly new to the wiki. I am a very big Splatoon fan, and was trying to add Splatoon 3 info to the wiki. I accidentally added unconfirmed information, which was then taken down. I really want to add Splatoon 3 information, but I'm not sure how. Is there anything I can do that will add Splatoon 3 information? Thank you! :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by HalfSanitized (talkcontribs)

@HalfSanitized I think all the available info has been added to the Splatoon 3 page. I suggest keeping an eye out for new information from Nintendo. Heddy (talk) 06:39, 21 March 2021 (UTC)

Does Inkipedia do anything for April Fools Day?

Just wondering. I know other wikis do this, but I don’t see any pranks here. --S2 Icon Li'l Judd.png LIL JUDD INVASION! S2 Icon Li'l Judd.png 21:45, 1 April 2021 (UTC)

Yes. I recently found out that the "Edit by pigeon" is an April Fools because the file has April fools in its name (heres the link:[[1]] ) And I'm pretty sure that User:Fumple Splatoon 2 shirt" when it reality, it was a fraud

From, Yaxops BanterYaxopsMebukia.png 22:44, 1 April 2021 (UTC)

That was close...

Funny how it says on the edit by pigeon thing that people's edits are ruined by bad connections when my bad connection saved me from the rickroll link. Must say, THAT was a close call. WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 20:15, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Can we please remove this?

Can we please remove the "Edit-by-pigeon" joke in the News section? April Fools is over FYI. P.J. GT (talk) 03:54, 16 April 2021 (UTC)

Yeah I agree, April's almost over already lol Timewip2020 (talk) 18:04, 22 April 2021 (UTC)
We have always kept news up until it is replaced by new news. Heddy (talk) 21:50, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

If there is something new announced for Splatoon 3 in the near future (possibly E3), could it replace the April Fools joke? The S3 announcement is more important IMO. P.J. GT (talk) 22:19, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

One new post would bump the NIWA post down, but not replace it. When two new posts are made, then the NIWA post will be gone. I'm happy to add posts for anything new regarding Inkipedia or Splatoon, but I will not arbitrarily replace posts just because someone doesn't like a particular post.

Splatoon 3

On this page will be information about the Splatoon 3 trailers, thus adding further analysis. Feel free to edit this page with more information.

At the begging we see multiple new hairstyles for the female and male inklings, as well new pants options. We also get new eye coloration, as well as multiple coloured eyes. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rizmal (talkcontribs) 04:22, 1 September 2021 (UTC)

Oh my gosh guys have you seen the new trailer for splatoon 3??!!! It's so good!!!!!!!!! ****Stormy — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sploon2 (talkcontribs) 14:04, 24 September 2021‎ (UTC)

Is there a way to make a link to a page with multiple articles to choose from?

I was wondering if there was a way to create a link that would take the user to a page with multiple article links they could choose from. For example, I have recently created the page for Alterna. However, there is also a link for an uncreated page called “Alterna (mode)”. When both articles are active, is there a way I can use a link like this? — Preceding unsigned comment added by HalfSanitized (talkcontribs) 02:27, 25 September 2021 (UTC)

For now, I think we should use the former (without "(mode)"). Exaskliri (talk) 03:39, 25 September 2021 (UTC)
Ok, thanks! HalfSanitized (talk) 18:13, 25 September 2021 (UTC)
