Single player mode tips & strategy

Hi GloverMist, this is PrinceRatio. I've been editing some pages in the last days and I added a few lines of gameplay details on some pages of Octo Expansion missions. I've added, on a little of them (e.g., Labyrinth Station) a weapon tips section. As someone made me notice, this may result a little subjective... I was thinking about creating a category of pages for Strategy and Weapon Tips for the Octo Expansion mode, like the strategy pages for weapons on online modes. What's your opinion about this? Thank you in advance! PrinceRatio (talk) 09:04, 31 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hiya, sorry for not responding to your previous message, I've been busy on holiday. Personally, I like the weapon tips for OE stages being on the page itself as long as it's not too informal, as it could be very helpful - personally, I don't think we need separate pages for strategy for single-player stages. Also, don't worry about using the formatting for weapons that adds its icon next to the text (an "inline icon") as we're moving away from using them on the site. Thanks! GloverMist (talk) 15:48, 31 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hey there, I'm glad you like the idea of the weapon tips and that you think they can be put directly on the pages themselves! I didn't know that weapon icons were not used anymore, I actually adore them and I thought that they would give a nice look to the paragraphs... Do you think I shouldn't put them in my next edits? Anyway, thanks for your opinion, I'll try to add the weapon tips sections whenever I can, keeping the advices as objective and formal as possible. Again, thank you very much! Until next time! PrinceRatio (talk) 19:04, 31 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yeah, we're actually removing existing inline icons from paragraphs, so don't add them from now on if that's alright. By the way, if you want to ask for more advice from the whole community, don't forget to join our Discord! You'll find all of us there. GloverMist (talk) 20:46, 31 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Userpage signatures

So recently I added a section on my userpage asking people to sign my user page with a username and/or a friendly message, and it's starting to spread. I just wanted to ask if this is ok to have on the site and if it's violating any rules or policies. So far it's only me and another user with the name 🐙owen⛥puppy⛥21🐙 that I've seen, so I wanted to consult you just to check before it starts spreading. Hope to see your reply and feedback soon!

I mean, user pages are generally for whatever you want as long as you're OK with it, so I see no reason why not. User talk pages probably shouldn't be used for it but aside from that, sure. GloverMist (talk) 20:45, 5 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
thanks! would you sign as well? now that it's been approved, i'd like to spread the trend so that people can go and know other people on the site, especially ones that aren't in the discord. signed, ~~~~ Goldeη1talkInkipedia Logo Contest 2022 - DedSplat1369 - Icon Proposal 7.png 21:45, 5 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sandboxes?

Hey there, this is PrinceRatio. I'm sorry to bother you, but I'd wanted to ask you some information about these "sandboxes" that a user can create. Since I'm new, I don't know what are they. Can you give me some info? Thank you! PrinceRatio (talk) 10:28, 10 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hiya! Sandboxes are basically just user pages where you can do pretty much anything you want, within reason. Staff members often use them for drafting new pages or major changes, but others like to just use them for little fun projects. Up to you! GloverMist (talk) 12:29, 10 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Notice.

Can you block "Prya" again? They vandalized Avery TSP's user page. P.J. GT(talk)SSBU Inkling Boy.png 21:54, 10 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please block "Nasty Farty Peeyew" and splat the files and pages they made too. P.J. GT(talk)SSBU Inkling Boy.png 02:03, 16 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Weapon class pages

Hello, this is PrinceRatio. I've seen that some pages about the Blaster and Brush classes are about to be made, because in Splatoon 3 they finally became separated weapon types. Today I've contributed to improve the Blaster class page. I wanted to ask you if it's possible to edit the templates for the weapon sets, because Blasters need to be separated from Shooters and Brushes from Rollers, but I don't know how to do it (or if I even have the autorization). Can you help me? Thank you in advance! PrinceRatio (talk) 09:28, 3 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hiya, thanks for your help with the blaster page! You're right, those lists will need some work done on them, so I'll put it to the other staff members as they're better with the data side of things than me. GloverMist (talk) 09:56, 3 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

New Things

I have found a few issues that reared their ugly mugs recently (I've listed them in the Ink Pump). Plus, Nintendo released an interview with Splatoon3's devs, and an image in Part 1 of the interview is "a map of all the major locations in the series"! I would upload it, but some of the words are so small, they get blurry when zoomed in on. P.J. GT(talk)SSBU Inkling Boy.png 16:14, 7 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Something I need to tell you...

Recently, a user by the name "Uh huh-" replied on my talk page, roasting my on my reporting to Shahar, still living with my parents at age 20 and my use of social media, calling me "entitled" based on my religious beliefs and asking people for art, and falsely accusing me of being the "trolls" that were plaguing the wiki. This upset me as he used term "get a life" three times in his list of options on me and demanded that I get blocked. Plus, they stated that they are a "throwaway" account, which is suspicious. I'm reporting this because this is flat-out harassment here. Sincerely, P.J. GT(talk)SSBU Inkling Boy.png 17:13, 19 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'll monitor their activity in future, if any, and see if anything needs to be done. As of now, as an account with only one edit, there's not a lot we can do, unfortunately. GloverMist (talk) 17:37, 19 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
They also made another account in "Uh huh-2" and also about them being a "throwaway" account, they might be a random viewer that saw my user page content and talk history and decided it was a good idea to negatively criticize me, (Which it wasn't). Sincerely, P.J. GT(talk)SSBU Inkling Boy.png 18:42, 19 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
"Uh huh-/Uh huh- 2" just called me "greedy" after asking Milchik on their talk page for some art and complementing their artwork and I changed my mind once they turned it down due to their irl schedule. "Uh huh-/Uh huh- 2" seems only here to negatively criticize me. This is flat-out harassment here, and they need to be blocked! P.J. GT(talk)SSBU Inkling Boy.png 01:46, 21 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You giving people grief (an eye roll emoji) for some art sounds like "flat out harassment". If you want art, get an actual commision from an artist from google or make it yourself. Being honest now tho, I don't think your the vandel (ANYMORE) jfc.
Regards, Uh huh- 2 (talk) 01:55, 21 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Listen. I did the "eye-roll emoji" in agreement to not getting art and NOT to grief them. I was being 1000% polite in that comment. Just PLEASE stop discriminating me! I now know better! P.J. GT(talk)SSBU Inkling Boy.png 02:05, 21 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey uhm..

could you tell me how to input your Splatoon charater in your user page? Oppochrome (talk) 15:52, 9 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

About Shiver Gender

Your justification is the reason I removed it in the first place. It was a huge discussion at the time. It's no longer relevant, and the information was always inaccurate. The discussion is still chronicled in Shiver's discussion page. There's no reason for it to be on the main page as well at this point. Do you have any other justification for keeping the gender section? Multiple people are in favor of getting rid of it. If we could put it to a bigger vote I would be up for it. Savoir (talk) 00:37, 25 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I would be in favour of a bigger vote, since an administrator explicitly said it was not yet to be removed. RammyRamRamRam (talk) 01:28, 25 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'd like to continue this conversation in Talk:Shiver#Can we just erase the Gender section? or a new section of the same talk page where it's relevant. Go with what Heddy said. RammyRamRamRam (talk) 02:07, 25 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
A vote seems inappropriate, because everyone already agrees that inaccurate facts must be removed. Please correct or remove the inaccurate facts, instead of removing the entire section. Also, you should finish the discussion at Talk:Shiver#Shiver's Gender In Retrospect, since a user responded with a draft suggesting to improve the section.

Account change

Hey there, this is Paradoxe-Nana. I just created this new account because I lost my old one's password and couldn't change it (I was PrinceRatio, the one of the weapons tips for Octo Exp., you remember?). I wanted to know if it was possible to delete the previous user page, or necessary according to some wiki policy. Sorry to disturb you and thanks in advance!

About the mangas Splatoon and Splatoon: Bankara!

Seeing as Sankicki wrote both and they continue on to each other I think we should merge the pages.

the main characters (being Team Blue) are carried over and it's set in the same universe.

I mean, doesn't this

Goggles is a main character in Splatoon and Splatoon: Bankara!

friends and relationships

Team Blue + all other splat manga cast (Splatoon)

Team Blue, Tri-sunglasses-kun, Mitsuami (Splatoon: Bankara!)

look clunkier than

Hello!

I recently added a reference/citation to the page Octoling Rendezvous, and I noticed you edited it in some way afterwards, which is this:

<ref> [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEhyMd0zBok {{YT}} Octoling Renvezdoes<sup>[sic<nowiki>]

I'm a little confused on what some of the stuff you put in there means. I can guess that {{YT}} adds the YouTube logo to the reference, and I know that sup means superscript, but what is the point of "sic" and adding the <nowiki>, and putting it in superscript? - S3 Badge Splatana Stamper 5.png splat.dualies S3 Badge Zipcaster 1200.png ( talk ) 23:13, 19 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hiya! Good question. In short, the [sic] tag is used to indicate an intentional mistake in copied text. I used it because the video title misspells "Rendezvous" and I wanted to show that it was a mistake on the video uploader's part, not yours. The nowiki tag was only needed because the square brackets would otherwise confuse the ref template! Hope this answers your questions! GloverMist (talk) 06:26, 20 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Okay, thanks for replying! -

Ages of people

I found a template for adding ages to people pages (so we don't have to edit every year). <includeonly>{{#expr:({{{4|{{CURRENTYEAR}}}}})-({{{1}}})-(({{{5|{{CURRENTMONTH}}}}})<({{{2}}})or({{{5|{{CURRENTMONTH}}}}})=({{{2}}})and({{{6|{{CURRENTDAY}}}}})<({{{3}}}))}}</includeonly><noinclude> An example of this is here.

Good find! If you can implement it yourself, then feel free to go ahead with it! As for the image in your sig, you just need to change the "jpeg" to "jpg" and it should fix itself. GloverMist (talk) 20:13, 5 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I tried to add it, but I got an error. I'm not very good at wikicode, so please help. It's at Template:Age.
Thanks,
エスクヰト・美奈(FemaleUser.png) 18:19, 2 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hey there. Just so you know, the template works fine. The error message appears on the template page because there are no parameters inputted there. It works correctly when implemented. EminenceTalk 18:47, 2 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for your help in implementing this, both of you! It'll be a great help, I'm sure.
PS, if you want to fix your sig, OctoseekerStrings, you'll need to change the image file to "File:Octoseeker close up 3.jpg" instead as the file name was changed. Hope this helps! GloverMist (talk) 20:13, 2 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Strategy/Tactics on Salmon Run stages

Hello there! Sorry to bother, but I had a proposal and I needeed an admin's point of view. I was thinking that the Salmon Run stages' pages could have a strategy/tips section, like the ones I've started doing with Octo Expension stages (with my previous account, PrinceRatio). What do you think? Is it something that can be done or is it useless? Let me know! Thanks again. Paradoxe-Nana (talk) 16:36, 3 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I see no reason why not! If you can do it to a good standard, then feel free to be bold and go for it! GloverMist (talk) 15:01, 4 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
