Other Minifests that I would like to tell you about

I have a Minifest held January! Checkers vs Chess is the theme. Also User:P.J. GT is holding some of his own. I thought I could get the word out for him! Theme is Emperor vs Valkyrie (Valkyrie is in P.J. GT's Sandbox). Tell him if you'd like to join!ChessMaster [TALK] 17:34, 28 December 2020 (UTC)(Also thanks for participating in my Fest! Even for a little while, I still appreciate it!)

Sorry but thats cancelled.--PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 23:15, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
Mine is still being held by the wayChessMaster [TALK] 01:19, 5 January 2021 (UTC) :)

Something I made for admin

I've been splatting a LOT of spam so i made this -PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 23:15, 4 January 2021 (UTC)

I... don't understand. Heddy (talk) 21:45, 5 January 2021 (UTC)
Don't understand life in general or maths!--PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 06:39, 6 January 2021 (UTC) i understand wikitext

Maybe spammer

People may have gone over this before, but i think AlexD830 may be a spammer. he reacently put totaly false info on the private battle page, P.J. GT helped fix that, and he has done that before.Squid400 (talk) 17:26, 7 January 2021 (UTC)

Spammers are usually robots that insert unsolicited advertisements into pages. Someone who is always adding on-topic information could not possibly be a spammer. If you believe the information they added is false, you should discuss this with them to resolve the misunderstanding. I noticed that someone else added back the information, so there's at least two people who think that information is correct. Heddy (talk) 17:56, 7 January 2021 (UTC)

I reverted that edit because I misunderstood the "Players don't gain points from Private Battles" sentence. I thought that it mentioned both Level-Up XP and a Weapon's lifetime ink coverage don't increase when played in said mode. I've rarely played Private Battles to notice so, sorry for the inconvenience. P.J. GT (talk) 18:11, 7 January 2021 (UTC)

AlexD830 has been on Inkipedia for over a year and has made many constructive edits. Although he posted some misinformation, I do not think he is a spammer. Eminence Chatter 19:01, 7 January 2021 (UTC)

When or if im patroller

Can admin have their email on the user page. I have an Email that is just for a lego account --PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 23:38, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

@Prinz the overlord: Anyone can add an email to Preferences. Then, other people can email you by clicking 'Email this user' on the sidebar. Please do not add your email to your user page unless you are okay with spambots collecting your email. You can keep your email safe by only adding it to Preferences. Heddy (talk) 02:29, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
If you look at my user page, you can see that I added a link to Special:EmailUser/Heddy as one of the ways to contact me; adding it this way protects your email address. Heddy (talk) 02:36, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

Vandal

Please block user L'octaling as he vandalized the Octoleet Goggles page by posting fake information in french.. I reverted his edit though. Eminence Chatter 16:54, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

Ohh vandalism has started over aginn. Ugh...--PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 16:55, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
That is not blatant vandalism, we must assume good faith. I will assume they are lost and were looking for the French wiki. I gave them a warning about this wiki being English-only. Heddy (talk) 18:36, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
Alright. But they were also spreading misinformation so... Eminence Chatter 19:39, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
Hmmm, from Google Translate, it says the goggles can hypnotize. Isn't that how DJ Octavio kept his army under control? And there was Callie's hypno shades too. I think there was a scroll or dialogue or something about that, but I could be wrong. Anyways, adding French is the more obvious problem so that is my primary concern. Heddy (talk) 19:48, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
Eminence, please dont assume genders on top of that. A LOT of people think im a boy--PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 20:14, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
The gender neutral pronoun is 'they'. You can say 'they' if you do not know someone's gender. Heddy (talk) 20:40, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
I perfer they or they, she her or Overlord. Also is it too early to ask to become patroller PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 20:43, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
@Prinz the overlord: patroller is not a privilege or a reward; it is a responsibility. I suggest reading about the responsibilities at Inkipedia:Requests for Rights so you can decide if you are ready for that. Heddy (talk) 23:52, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
thanks your a lifesaver heddy--PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 06:43, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

Sorry :(

I didn't mean to add false info. I thought it said over 60%. Ugh... again so sorry--PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 07:30, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

There is no need to apologize. Everyone makes mistakes and I make them too, especially when I'm getting sleepy. Heddy (talk) 07:40, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

Strategy: Bloblobber Deco

Since you're an admin, I decided I should tell you. I'm trying to make a strategy guide for the Bloblobber Deco, but I don't really know what to put besides the infobox. Can you help edit the page? Competitive:Bloblobber_Deco BambamOh (talk) 03:25, 23 January 2021 (UTC)

Sorry If I'm not what you expected but try adding things that are good to the Bloblobber Deco under a Use section (such as it has good range) but expand on it. Also add things that are bad about it under a countermeasures and expand on it (Such as it has low run speed). Then add abilities that are useful to it(Such as Ink saver (Main)) under a Recommended Ability section and a reason (such as it's good because it can provide more sloshes)ChessMaster [TALK] 03:44, 23 January 2021 (UTC)
Thank you! BambamOh (talk) 03:53, 23 January 2021 (UTC)

List of Weapon Strategy pages

@Eminence and I were wondering if my draft of the List of weapon strat pages was ready to be added to the main space. Thank you!Squid400Name.pngTalk2.png 17:10, 25 January 2021 (UTC)

I'm not Heddy but just chiming in that that page doesn't serve much purpose since we already have the navbox and Category:Weapon strategy. I can see the merit of it as a checklist page for the people creating the articles but don't think it does much in the mainspace that isn't already done. Luke26 (talk) 17:53, 25 January 2021 (UTC)
@Squid400 A page creation status checklist is only useful to editors. To create a better replacement for Category:Weapon strategy, think about what a reader would like to see. I have suggestions: it could have a summary of key info from each weapon article (such as role or strengths/weaknesses), and the icon for each weapon. Look at this article for inspiration; see how it provides a broad overview and helps the reader find what they're looking for. Heddy (talk) 18:46, 25 January 2021 (UTC)
Ok, thank you so much for that. Squid400Name.pngTalk2.png 18:50, 25 January 2021 (UTC)
Also, how could i make a template for that? Squid400Name.pngTalk2.png 18:53, 25 January 2021 (UTC) Im thinking about something like the weapon page
@Squid400 You could look at the shooter table as an example, or you could do any format you think of. I recommend deciding on a format to use before thinking of making a template. Templates are generally used to have the same content appear on multiple pages, so you might not need to create a template. Heddy (talk) 19:51, 25 January 2021 (UTC)

Autopatroller

I noticed you changed me to Autopatrolled User. Thanks for that! But what does that mean?ChessMaster [TALK] 20:22, 28 January 2021 (UTC)

Patrollers patrol other users edits to check for spam and inaccurate info. Trusted editors who make large amounts of edits are often Autopatrolled to reduce the amount of unpatrolled edits. Hope it helps! Eminence Chatter 21:07, 28 January 2021 (UTC)
Ok thanks @Eminence!ChessMaster [TALK] 21:27, 28 January 2021 (UTC)
@ChessMaster Here's a page with info: Inkipedia:Autopatrol. Heddy (talk) 22:32, 28 January 2021 (UTC)

Stage icons

Sorry about that Heddy. I should have checked to make sure that they where really screenshots. I see now that they where taken from the SplatNet site. Eminence Chatter 23:05, 28 January 2021 (UTC)

No problem, just be careful. Heddy (talk) 23:57, 28 January 2021 (UTC)

About being off

I had small inconsistent edits for a few days, and was off for about three. I have a valid reason. Me and my friend were hanging about near our local corner shop when this cyclist crashed into him, there was a lot of blood and pain, and I couldn't bring myself to do anything. Is there a punishment for not being on often PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 19:36, 31 January 2021 (UTC)

No! Even Patrollers and Admins only need to edit at least once a week. Eminence Chatter 22:20, 31 January 2021 (UTC)
Thanks, that's good to know also WELL DONE on nearly getting patroller status. :) --PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 22:50, 31 January 2021 (UTC)
@Prinz the overlord: I am sorry to hear about what happened to your friend. Real life should always take priority over wiki stuff. There is no punishment; autopatrol is not a reward and does not have any perks, so not being on it is not a punishment. Just have fun editing, as often as you want! 😀 Heddy (talk) 23:03, 31 January 2021 (UTC)
Heddy you might be happy to hear. I am cross NIWA. This place inspired me so much! --PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 23:10, 31 January 2021 (UTC)
Thanks Heddy! --PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 01:25, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

Patroller

Eminence was on for a month or something longer than me, so if i make A LOT of mainspace edits and request in say, May. Would you vote--PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 01:38, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

I think the best patrollers are people with good judgement and a friendly attitude, and plenty of wiki experience. If you improve articles, show good judgement and experience, and help other editors with editing and using the wiki, I will be happy to vote for you. Heddy (talk) 18:39, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

Spam

User:LeilaniMaple23 is a spammer, can you block them. There hasn't been a few in a while.--PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 19:33, 2 February 2021 (UTC)

I know im butting in, but honestly, were is the evidence. all she said is that she likes singing and machining (whatever that is) --Squid400Name.pngTalk2.png 19:35, 2 February 2021 (UTC):It is a similar format. Also thanks Heddy for blocking the pooperlord --PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 19:36, 2 February 2021 (UTC)

A) spam names have a similar format usually, such as (Using a name) DaniSmith97. B) They usually put age and hobby. C) it sounds weird--PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 19:38, 2 February 2021 (UTC) P.s What IS MACHINING?!

Once again, the weapon tables

So, i took what someone, dont remember who, to heart about the weapon tables. I think i have made it so readers would enjoy it. if you can, look into it here. Thx a lot for you time. Squid400Name.pngTalk2.png 17:45, 3 February 2021 (UTC)

@Squid400: I advise to use standard table styles such as class="wikitable sitecolor-generic" instead of a custom one. Heddy (talk) 04:03, 4 February 2021 (UTC)
Ok, i was just expirementing with the colors. Squid400Name.pngTalk2.png 16:28, 4 February 2021 (UTC)

Demotion?

Hi Heddy, I just wanted to bring it to your attention that WayslideCool has not patrolled a single edit since July 21, 2020. During this time period they have also only made seven edits. I don't have anything against WayslideCool I just wanted to bring this to an admins attention.

Also, the status bar on the RightsList is based on edits, but perhaps the bar should be based on how much the user uses the tools. Because a user shouldn't be a patroller or admin if they don't use the tools these roles provide them. Just wondering, Eminence Chatter 17:15, 22 February 2021 (UTC)

According to the demotion policy, not using rights is a valid reason for demotion. That is a long period of time to go without patrolling, so I decided to change them to autopatrolled. The rights list status is mainly there to help people decide who is the best person to contact for help. Heddy (talk) 20:03, 22 February 2021 (UTC)
Ok Thanks! Eminence Chatter 21:52, 22 February 2021 (UTC)


A request

Hey Heddy, click here. I have a request. If not admin, then like distinguished inklin with custom barnsquid or something. My dream is to make this the best splatoon wiki ever!! Way better than FANDOM!! ~~Carrietta "Carrie" White~~ (talk to me here) 23:09, 22 February 2021 (UTC)

@Carrie That's a wonderful dream! I also want this wiki to be the 'wikipedia of inkopolis'. But are you sure you need to be admin? Admin tools are just for deleting and protecting pages and blocking users. It is possible to improve the wiki without being an admin. In fact, the users who have contributed the most are not admins.
Usually no one goes straight to admin, they get plenty of experience in multiple areas of the wiki, then become patroller, then become admin. If you want to request rights, you can do so at Requests for Rights, where everyone would vote and provide feedback. Heddy (talk) 23:34, 22 February 2021 (UTC)

Oh, I'm sure. Like maybe patroller or whatever because I basically do patrol for spelling errors n stuff. Go to my talk, if you made your decision. With WOOMIES, ~~Carrietta "Carrie" White~~ (talk to me here) 00:24, 23 February 2021 (UTC) P. S. here is official admin request: Inkipedia:Requests for Rights/Archives/Carrie

I don't know if User:ZenaidaEger51 is a bot, but they seem really suspicious. I think they are likely a spammer. Can you please block them? dedf1sh07[talk]S2 Gear Headgear Golden Toothpick.png 01:42, 3 March 2021 (UTC)

Dear,Heddy

Sorry I forgot that it was discussion for the wiki I'm terribly sorry!

Thanks, Yaxops YaxopsMebukia.png

No need to apologize, just be aware of the notice at the top of the Ink Pump page, which reminds us of the purpose of Ink Pump. Have fun editing! Heddy (talk) 00:14, 31 March 2021 (UTC)

Thanks!

Thank you for getting use out of the file I marked for deletion! I appreciate it! Yaxops BanterYaxopsMebukia.png 14:42, 5 April 2021 (UTC)

Suspicious user

There is a new user, OCTOd2, that is suspiciously similar to @User:OCTOD2. The user page is almost exactly the same, and they have a very similar name. it could just be that OCTOD2 forgot their password, but.... thought you should know. Squid400 (talk) 15:51, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

Thanks. I left them a message to inform them of the multiple account policy. Heddy (talk) 12:19, 21 April 2021 (UTC)

Your recent change to the Inkfest page.

I found out that the dates for some upcoming Minifests were made inaccurate from your recent edit to the Inkfest page. So I fixed them. You may have made a mistake. No hard feelings! : ) P.J. GT (talk) 12:44, 24 April 2021 (UTC)

Thanks! Heddy (talk) 19:31, 24 April 2021 (UTC)

Deletion

Can you please splat the file File:Concede? Thanks! YaxopsMebukia.pngYaxops Banter contribs

Files that are in use shouldn't be deleted. That file was used on a talk page, so it should not be deleted. Heddy (talk) 22:42, 28 April 2021 (UTC)

Marking image uploads as patrolled

The only thing that wasnt patrolled at the time of writing was an image which i couldnt mark as patrolled. How can i mark images as patrolled? Thank you Squid400 (talk) 14:45, 6 May 2021 (UTC)

To mark an image as patrolled, go to the image page. Underneath the summary, on the right side of the page, there is a link that says "mark image as patrolled." Click on that to mark the image as patrolled. Hope it helps! Eminence Chatter 15:52, 6 May 2021 (UTC)
Alternatively, you can use PatrolTool and select File as the namespace. Heddy (talk) 19:15, 6 May 2021 (UTC)
