From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki

Pikan is a Javascript script I made for Pikipedia, now ported to Inkipedia. The name is short for "Pikipedia analyzer", and it creates a new button on the editing interface that, when pressed, runs an analyzer that reports problems with the page. For more information, see here; the analyzer works the same way here as it does on Pikipedia, except it checks different things, listed below. The core of the analyzer is hosted on Pikipedia, and it's checking a list of rules hosted on Inkipedia, here.



  • Finds any instance of "Wikia".
  • Finds incorrect spellings of "GamePad" and "Nunchuk".


  • Warns about game names that are not italicized.
  • Finds "Splatoon" with a lowercase s.
  • Finds a species name (Inkling, Octoling, etc.) with a lowercase initial letter.
  • Finds buttons being written with text instead of with {{button}}.


  • Finds mentions of "you" outside of guides.
  • Finds tampering of fonts, <p> tags, and black font color in CSS, which are a sign of Wikia visual editor leftovers.
  • Finds gendered nouns, which could be replaced with "they" or "it".
  • Finds "(NA)", "(EUOC)", etc., and recommends using Template:NA, Template:EUOC, and Template:NAEUOC instead.


  • Finds double empty lines.
  • Finds redundant "Template:" prefixes when calling templates.
  • Finds "Image:" and suggests "File:".

  • Finds trailing spaces.
  • Finds double spaces.
  • Finds file names with underscores, where spaces work better.
  • Finds page links with underscores, where spaces work better.
  • Finds links in the format [[A|A]] and suggests [[A]].
  • Finds links in the format [[A|AB]] and suggests [[A]]B.
