Hi! I realized I never set up one of these, so... here's one! Please let me know here if you have any suggestions for changes I've made on the wiki, and I'll be sure to make some changes! I love helping out, and I want to make sure my edits are nothing but the best. Thank you :] Carbonroller (talk) 15:36, 28 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello! I would like to make a suggestion to the main page. It would be neat to have the inkpedia pool on the main page

Hi there!!! Sorry for the late reply. We will look into adding the pool code somewhere more accessible and making it more clear, but we'd rather not have it on the main page. Sorry about that!

Autopatrolled status

Hey FancyRat, I added you to the autopatrol group. This means that staff will no longer be required to review your edits. There are no other changes. Users are generally placed in this group when they are active, experienced, and extremely unlikely to breach Inkipedia policy. Let me know if you have any questions, and have fun editing! Heddy (talk) 03:28, 26 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wowee, thank you so much!!! It is truly an honor. I am thrilled to be part of the autopatrol group! S3 Badge Nautilus 47 5.pngFancyRatCredits - Inkling Boy Eating Popsicle.png 14:25, 26 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Deleting images

Hey there! I've saw your message and I wanted to delete the photos, but guess what? I don't know how to do it hahaha... Sorry to bother, but can you help me? Thanks in advance! Paradoxe-Nana (talk) 17:48, 3 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

To delete files, put the deletion template on your files. An admin will delete them for you. EminenceTalk 17:50, 3 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you so much! Gonna do it right now. Paradoxe-Nana (talk) 17:51, 3 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Congratulations on receiving patroller rights!

Congratulations on receiving patroller rights! You will now have:

  • Exclamation points on the recent changes page, next to each un-reviewed edit.
  • A [mark as reviewed] button on diff pages. Click it after you have reviewed an edit, so that other staff members know that all necessary review and action has been completed for that edit.
  • A rollback button on the recent changes page. It instantly reverts multiple edits to a page. This should only be used for reverting vandalism and spam, because it doesn't have the option of leaving an edit summary.
    • You can add a confirmation prompt to this button (to prevent accidental clicks) at: Special:Preferences > Appearance > Show a confirmation prompt when clicking on a rollback link

You may add your details to the staff list.

If you have not already, join us in Discord, where you will get access to the staff channel. This is the best way to get help from admins and chat about ideas.

Let me know if you have any questions. Please make good use of your new tools, and have fun editing! Heddy (talk) 08:36, 13 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you so much, Heddy! I really appreciate it! :] S3 Badge Nautilus 47 5.pngFancyRatCredits - Inkling Boy Eating Popsicle.png 23:15, 14 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Proper use of rollback

I see that you have used rollback on the Drizzle Season 2023 article. However, as stated in my "congrats on patroller rights" message on your talk page, rollback should not be used to reverse good-faith edits in situations where an explanatory edit summary would normally be expected.

Rollback should only be used to revert spam and vandalism, as no edit summary is expected.

In a situation where you need to revert multiple good-faith edits, you should go to the history page, then click the timestamp of the last good revision, then press edit, then add an edit summary, then save; these steps will revert to the selected revision while allowing you to provide the expected edit summary, explaining why you are reverting the edits.

If you accidentally clicked the rollback button, there is a way to add a confirmation step by changing a user preference. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for your efforts in patrolling and contributing to the wiki! Heddy (talk) 00:30, 19 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I am very sorry about that, Heddy!! I will definitely do that in the future. Thank you so much for taking the time to let me know (again)! It truly means a lot to me. I will continue to do my best and improve my skills as a patroller for the wiki! :] S3 Badge Nautilus 47 5.pngFancyRatCredits - Inkling Boy Eating Popsicle.png 01:08, 19 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

New User Info: Files

Hey Bru, how ya doin. I was wondering if you could write a little something for my new user information page, as you upload files quite frequently and are somewhat knowledgeable on the subject. It's only some tips and tricks, and if you're up for it, go right ahead! The link is here, and you can just add it in. Of course, if for some reason you don't want to/ can't/ think someone else can do it better, you know where to find me! Thanks, Xando talk 12:31, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oh neat! Sure thing!!! I'll try and see what I can come up with later today :] Thanks for reaching out to me about this! S3 Badge Nautilus 47 5.pngFancyRatCredits - Inkling Boy Eating Popsicle.png 15:24, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

So about the message you sent about editing my user page's image section for me...

You can, I'm new when it comes to editing so I don't know what 90% of things even do so you can do it for me because idk how to do most stuff Goobert | talk

here's my son

Hi there! I made some changes to the gallery section, so it has a heading and matches the type of gallery section we use on articles. You can add extra equal signs to make the heading size different if you'd like. I also want to mention that some of the information you've added about yourself can be considered identifying features, so I'd suggest removing some things to not just comply with the personal information policy but to also help keep you safe. :] S3 Badge Nautilus 47 5.pngFancyRatCredits - Inkling Boy Eating Popsicle.png 18:01, 20 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Just saying hi

Hi bru! I don't have any questions, I came mostly to say hi. Just a few minutes ago I was in your turf war... I was the player with the name †˚Echo˚✩. that you splatted a lot 😭 R.I.P. me lol. I was wondering, can I add you as a friend on the switch? I wasn't sure if you accept new switch friends, or would like to be asked first, or just no. SplatoonQueen (talk) 19:21, 18 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi there!! Sorry for the late reply! First I want to say you and your team put up a good fight, and good game! Second, friend requests are totally fine with me :] I don't have a huge amount of people on my friend list, so there's no pressure when it comes to who gets added.

Confusion on user page

I just recently created an Inkipedia account and when I visit other user pages I see all the photos, info, and just customization and I'm not sure how to do that. Do you have any tips? EruditeEllipsis (talk) 22:02, 16 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi there!!! If you click the source editor icon on my userpage, you can see all the code I used. At the bottom of the page it shows the templates used on the page, too. You can either copy code directly from the page and modify it on your userpage, or you can view the template pages and customize them from there.

I have been using my phone when using Inkipedia so I have no idea how to do much coding. Should I watch some videos to understand it better? EruditeEllipsis (talk) 00:13, 17 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Don't worry! I also edit the wiki on my phone a lot. You really don't need to know much coding at all to do it. It's definitely a lot less complicated than it looks. For example, for the fan infoboxes, you can just visit the Template:Fan page and it will show you exactly what to put. Just copy and paste the syntax and replace "<The thing you like>" with one of the available options listed.
