Should the weapons image (in the main content box) link to Weapon instead of the category page? Or perhaps the migrate the content of Weapon and redirect to Category:Weapons ?

All the boxes should link to their appropriate articles. - Kjhf (Talk | Contribs) 14:45, 8 June 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Increase Cross-Browser Compatibility

Would it be possible to add the line display: -webkit-flex; to the CSS above where display: flex; is being used in order to increase browser compatibility? Looks great in very modern browsers and that extra line should catch a few more. Squidbina (talk) 04:49, 11 June 2015 (UTC)[reply]

All done. Thanks for the suggestion! – EspyoT 10:37, 11 June 2015 (UTC)[reply]
Sorry about tht! Espyo went ahead and added it for me (Thanks), I'll keep this in mind or the future.Aegis (talk) 10:50, 11 June 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Showing maps in the countdown

We can probably put the maps for regular and ranked that are being played now in the countdown. Example:

Regular Battle Mode: Turf War

Regular Battle Stages: Saltspray Rig and Kelp Dome

Ranked Battle Mode: Tower Control

Ranked Battle Stages: Bluefin Depot and Urchin Underpass

Countdown: 3:20:19

Something like that. It would just be a little add on to the countdown that you could do.

There is no way to do this, without someone having to update it every four hours. Can't guarantee accuracy, so unless automation is possible, I'm against it. Luke (talk) 16:32, 6 July 2015 (UTC)[reply]
I do recall coming across this, which is apparently automated from this. May or may not be practical for this wiki, though. Miles of SmashWiki (talk) 21:48, 6 July 2015 (UTC)[reply]

If anyone can do it, Please add the map rotation. it is so useful! Mr Squid (talk) 02:56, 29 February 2016 (UTC)[reply]


What if we changed the appearance of the Wiki to kind of match the appearance of Inkopolis Plaza during Splatfest? Make it more disco-y? I think it would be a cool thing to do and a good way to signify that Splatfest is going on :P Now dat's a nutty kid. 18:30, 18 July 2015 (UTC)[reply]

...hello? Now dat's a nutty kid. 11:05, 20 July 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Good idea. Mr Squid (talk) 02:57, 29 February 2016 (UTC)[reply]

I think we should bring back Inkling of the Month.(Mploughman (talk) 13:46, 8 March 2018 (UTC))[reply]


Just a little thing, could the Splatfest text on the main page be bracketed so it can lead to the Splatfest page itself? There's no direct link to it despite having information on the Splatfests. Also update the winners of NA and EU's 2nd event please. --CreatorGX (talk) 19:48, 23 July 2015 (UTC)[reply]

I think they're just waiting for Japan's Splatfest to end so the results will be complete. Safyire (talk) 06:24, 24 July 2015 (UTC)[reply]
That seems like a poor idea. NA/EU Splatfests and JP Splatfests are at totally different times. Assuming the schedule is the same, the page would be inaccurate half the time if we didn't update it after the fest itself.
It would be much better if we simply put "Unknown" for the next Splatfests, and make changes as they come. Drsonic1 (talk) 23:08, 26 July 2015 (UTC)[reply]
I made the title link to the Splatfest page and did what Drsonic requested. Thanks for letting us know how to make the wiki better! - ShrimpPin 23:40, 26 July 2015 (UTC)[reply]

The Splatfest timer currently says the NA Splatfest is over, but it's actually splatfest time right now (And for the next ~15 hours)

New content countdown (new weapon(s)/new map)

Like other countdowns, can we add countdowns for new content such as weapons or maps. (new content releases every other Wednesday/Saturday 2:00 UTC) InfiniteMusume (talk) 08:46, 24 July 2015 (UTC)[reply]

I think this is a very good idea! What are others' thoughts? - ShrimpPin 23:41, 26 July 2015 (UTC)[reply]
That would be fine. There's no harm in having as much relevant information on the main page as possible! Drsonic1 (talk) 17:41, 27 July 2015 (UTC)[reply]
Yeah, that's a good idea but it's too late. No new maps or stages coming :( Mr Squid (talk) 02:59, 29 February 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Something strange with the Featured Article...

The title for the Featured Article box is showing up as uh... "aN:aN:aN". I looked at the source for both the main page and the FeaturedArticle template, but I can't tell what's causing it, they both look fine. I don't know if this is happening for anyone else, but just thought I'd bring it up.

Oh yeah, I took a screenshot:

You okay there featuredarticle.png

--Bzeep! talk 12:58, 10 October 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Looks like it's doing the same thing on mobile, too. Anyone else seeing that or am I just, like, losing it or something? 😛 --Bzeep! talk 01:31, 11 October 2015 (UTC)[reply]
I'm seeing it too (in both Firefox and Chrome on Windows 10). --Kaioora (talk) 01:41, 11 October 2015 (UTC)[reply]
It seems that the countdown code from the previous block is leaking into the featured article block. -- Prod (talk) 04:17, 11 October 2015 (UTC)[reply]
Yep, it looks like a missing </p> tag on the bottom countdown was causing it. --Kaioora (talk) 04:51, 11 October 2015 (UTC)[reply]
Ah okay. Cool. --Bzeep! talk 13:06, 11 October 2015 (UTC)[reply]

The girl inkling is blocking some words at the top of the main page. Mr Squid (talk) 04:19, 29 February 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Eh yeah that can happen on smaller screens. :/ It's not the most responsive main page, hopefully we can work on that. --Bzeep! talk 22:22, 1 March 2016 (UTC)[reply]

2.6.0 update information

On the main page, it says that version 2.6.0 introduces Wasabi splattershot, berry splattershot pro and fresh squiffer. However, these are coming in the next update in April. Could somebody fix that, as I can't (only special people can). Mr Squid (talk) 05:20, 9 March 2016 (UTC)[reply]


We should add polls to Inkipedia, like other wikis (and wikias) do. Examples: What is your favourite special (though I already have a blog about it), who is your favourite Splatoon character?, what sort of new updates do you want? Just an idea... (you could put this on the Ink Pump but this is more for the main page). What do you think?

17:52, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

We actually did attempt that a while ago. Then this placement glitch happened and nobody knew what to do about it, so it's... on hold. For two months. Haha --Bzeep! talk 18:22, 17 April 2016 (UTC)[reply]
For way more than two months. ;) 14:56, 25 June 2016 (UTC)
If you have an idea for how to fix it, please feel free to help out! :) --Bzeep! talk 16:18, 25 June 2016 (UTC)[reply]

There was a poll this morning, but the next one's in April, so I think they should be more often. (Mploughman (talk) 13:55, 8 March 2018 (UTC))[reply]

  • Your wish was granted, poll will now be replaced every two weeks. (: ShaharSig2.pngShaharSigtalk2.png 05:06, 9 March 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you for the help ;) Can't wait for next Poll!(Mploughman (talk) 15:45, 18 March 2018 (UTC))[reply]


I think it would be good if the links to the other NIWA wikis could say what the game or series is

(e.g. Super Mario Wiki - Mario) or something like that.

14:56, 25 June 2016 (UTC)

Most if not all are very clear and adding much more text would make it pretty bulky and not nice to look at. :::Luke Talk Contribs::: 15:25, 25 June 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Splatfest has come to an end

Now after the final splatfest I've been thinking about few options to fill up the main page:

  1. Stage schedule to replace splatfest template when prod implements it.
  2. embed twitter of splatoon JP like in bulbapedia snd shorten the featured article from 2 to 1.

I did a first sketch in my Sandbox page if anyone wants to look at that. ShaharSig2.pngShaharSigtalk2.png 23:50, 29 July 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Definite support for the stage schedule, but no for the Twitter; we're an English wiki and barely anyone could read the tweets. :::Luke Talk Contribs::: 02:06, 30 July 2016 (UTC)[reply]
My apologies. It's just that it's hard for me to grasp on the fact that Splatfest is gone. It's a bit sad for me to let it go... --Sigma talk 05:58, 30 July 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Maybe we should add a new thing to our page like the gear or weapon of the day, and we can add gear suggestions for certain modes people are struggling with or if they want to try something new! Marie official artwork.png Aquastarz13 Talk Contribs 18:15, 3 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Ohh, that'd be pretty nifty. Nice idea. Could also link to our very own Syl's weapon demonstration videos. ~SuperHamster Talk 01:29, 5 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Yes that's a great Idea! The only thing is that, I don't even know how to edit the main page and how to add this to the main page! If you want, I can give prefferred Gear sets for any weapon, each day different, please remind me if I do the same gear sets (if this even happens) and add a certain gear or weapon of the day and I'll work with that! :3 This can help the guests to our wiki and maybe you guys playing splatoon!

New Update

Recently I saw at Quickstart about some new content and it said:

  • Different Modes
  • Amiibo Features
  • 14 New Maps
  • More Weapon types to master
  • Play with friends
  • & More

--Major Agent 3 Guy (talk) 14:26, 20 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Can only see one out of two stages

For Regular and ranked,I can only see one of the stages,the other one is blocked ----Jedi Master

For all three times? Blocked by what? What browser are you using? Slate Talk Contribs 14:38, 23 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]

US Inkling open @ E3 2017

"World championship The final team introduction is Deadbeat, the US delegate, the host country. The champion of the American online convention "Splatoon US Inkling Open". Because they never played together only online, they say they have never met each other. I'm looking forward to the day of the tournament, what kind of the rapists are."

This is from the splatoon JP twitter on Deadbeat, I don't know if they were just being to the US, or it was a google translate fail.

Global Splatfest Error on main page

Despite the results being combined, each region has its own start and end times: NA/OC: 11p Fri-11p Sat ET JPN: 1a Sat-1a Sun ET EU: 7a Sat-7a Sun ET

Weapons Sub Categories

Should we divide the weapon categories even more on the navbox? I mean instead of lumping Rollers and Brushes in the same Roller category, divide them into Rollers and Brushes. Same for normal Shooters, Blasters, and Burster (L-3, H-3, Squeezer. Category name debatable). Cause ingame, they do divide them when listing them out in testing range. Thinker224 (talk) 17:27, 17 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]

This has been discussed and we decided against doing that. Inkling luke.png Inkling talk.png 20:27, 17 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Pulp / No Pulp Splatfest Date

Main page says July 23, but it starts June 22. Should correct it. // Mochah (talk) 03:05, 18 June 2018 (UTC)[reply]

The time is automatically converted to your time zone. The Splatfest does start on June 23 in some time zones. Heddy (talk) 03:16, 18 June 2018 (UTC)[reply]
But it said JULY 23, not JUNE. :p Thanks for fixing! // Mochah (talk) 05:01, 18 June 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Featured Article

I am wondering whether or not we could bring back a Featured article section on the main page because Wikipedia as well as most other fan made wikis have a Featured article section on their main page. Let me know what you guys think. Warriorking98 (talk)

The news section is effectively the featured article section. The old process (see Inkipedia:Featured content) required voting and discussion and did not allow for the featured section to be freely updated by anyone, so the section ended up never getting updated. The new Featured page (see Main Page/Featured) allows any Inkipedia editor to update it with the latest news, featuring articles in the process by linking to them. Heddy (talk) 02:25, 21 June 2018 (UTC)[reply]
So THAT'S what happened to the featured section and the polls! I was wondering what happened to them. Inkling project paintball font eleven23.png Inkling project paintball font eleven23 talk.png 08:35, 20 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Rare Rotation 10/08

The game says for 10th August it's not a rare rotation. Why do we have it down as one? Adster1005       08:47, 10 August 2018 (UTC)

There's an issue with the script that outputs the SR rotations. We're aware of the issue and are waiting on the fix to be implemented. Inkling luke.png Inkling talk.png 22:09, 10 August 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Suggestion Regarding Weapon Articles

I'm aware that many articles have Weapon Demonstration videos, but picking up the H-3 Nozzlenose D was still difficult. My point is: I wonder if we could possibly find some gameplay videos (i.e, real matches) to post on the weapons articles? 5p1k3 (talk) 12:04, 31 October 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Also, I propose that short and concise descriptions of how to use main/sub/special weapons be added. If someone has thought of this already, I haven't seen it. 5p1k3 (talk) 12:46, 31 October 2018 (UTC)[reply]
