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]

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

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! LakePuddle 🗩 🖉 16:08, 2 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I cannot co firm the fuzzy ooze icon is in Callie’s dialogue. Can you elaborate? Dabbing-ChromeWolf.jpg Chrome Wolf S3 Big Man Render.png (🎙, 🗂). 12:41, 11 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Discuss this on the fuzzy ooze page. The main page discusssion is not the right place for this. Cruelty to Salmons (talk) 15:57, 16 November 2022 (UTC)[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]

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]
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!

Your're going to have to ask @Shahar about that. Xandpochondria S3 Badge Toni Kensa 100.png 22:55, 8 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Ok I will. Thanks a bunch!

I HAVE A THEORY

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.

This isn't what this page is for. DaRootBeer1231 (talk) 17:58, 9 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
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!

Countdown

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]

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]
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]
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]
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]
But all regions are having the splatfest simultaneously, you'd only need one countdown timer
Adalent (talk) 03:54, 11 November 2022 (UTC)[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]
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]
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]
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]
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]

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.

The Ink pump is the best place to discuss this, as this talk page is mainly focused on the Main Page Dabbing-ChromeWolf.jpg Chrome Wolf S3 Big Man Render.png (🎙, 🗂). 18:59, 13 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
If I am wrong, forgive me Dabbing-ChromeWolf.jpg Chrome Wolf S3 Big Man Render.png (🎙, 🗂). 19:04, 13 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Your right. This is not the right place to put my problem but little bit ago I saw that the pic was in a gallery. So I added the "File" part to it and then It worked. Splat.girl (talk) 22:12, 13 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I’m glad it’s resolved!

The main page discussion is not for announcing news or general site discussions. It is for discussing improvements to the main page itself. If you want to discuss this subject, use the ink pump. Cruelty to Salmons (talk) 16:51, 14 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Unless it’s something that should be put on the main page. …Which I was. Wind Waker (talk) 11:24, 17 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

The news is weird

So the nes on the main page has announcements for the splatoon 3 direct and amino trailer… BUT NOT AN ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE RELEASE OF SPLATOON 3?!? This is a serious oversight that MUST BE FIXED ASAP. Cruelty to Salmons (talk) 16:02, 14 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

The release of Splatoon 3 was months ago, I agree that they should have put it on the page back then, but now that is in the past. BesnhasthefunS3 Badge Trizooka 30.png 16:05, 14 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Pretty sure they did, but I could be wrong. :)
Frye 2D.pngClarinet.octo Marina 2D.png (talk)Marie official artwork.png 18:35, 14 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
They did but the news is only three items long so stuff gets pushed back. Xan S3 Badge Toni Kensa 100.png 18:41, 14 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
They have an announcement for the direct on there which was before the release of splatoon 3, meaning if they had announced it it would be on there. Cruelty to Salmons (talk) 16:00, 16 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
The news now tells stuff now, not in the past. Dabbing-ChromeWolf.jpg Chrome Wolf ChromeWolf logo.jpg (🎙, 🗂). 00:58, 16 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Creators

maybe we could add a section for content creators? like ProChara and others? Bulbasaur24 (talk) 13:59, 17 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]

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. Second, the Ink Pump is more of a place to put this, than here, as this is the spot to improve the main page. Xan S3 Badge Toni Kensa 100.png 14:06, 17 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
oh ok thank u much Bulbasaur24 (talk) 16:06, 17 November 2022 (UTC)[reply]
