Weapon and Ability Icons

What was the consensus about the allowance of Weapon and Ability Icons on certain pages? For the past few months, I have been adding tips for use and countermeasures to various several pages concerning main weapons. As a fellow user and player, I believe that icons can better visually aid players who are looking for tips on which abilities to pair with a certain weapon or which weapons serve as a counter against another weapon.

DaDoc540 (talk) 01:00, 19 January 2020 (UTC)

Here's a link to my Ink Pump proposal, where a consensus was reached. I understand that the icons draw attention to the weapon or ability being discussed, but those topics are not necessarily more important that other topics we discuss in articles, like stages or characters, where we were not placing icons next to each link. So, it would be inappropriate to draw attention to things with those icons. There's a few other reasons mentioned by me and others in that Ink Pump page, like how having the icons makes it difficult to copy article text and more difficult to create articles. Heddy (talk) 02:06, 20 January 2020 (UTC)
On pages for Main Weapons, would tables, one displaying recommended Abilities and another indicating "Strong Against" and "Weak Against", be appropriate locations for Ability and Weapon icons? For example, on the page for the Splattershot Jr., the following could be used as a quick guide for Abilities to use:
Ability Purpose
S2 Ability Ink Saver (Sub).png Ink Saver (Sub) Allows more frequent use of Splat Bombs
S2 Ability Special Charge Up.png Special Charge Up Accelerates "farming" of Ink Armor
Will this be a reasonable use of Icons on Main Weapon Pages?
DaDoc540 (talk) 14:54, 21 January 2020 (UTC)
In the past, nearly every weapon page had a list of recommended abilities, but the lists were removed after there was agreement for opinions to be removed. So I can't endorse recommending abilities because recommended abilities were removed from weapon pages in the past.
Yes, it is reasonable to use icons in a table like that. Heddy (talk) 23:13, 24 January 2020 (UTC)
Yes, every player has his or her own play style with each weapon. Even on sendou.ink, not every top 500 player can agree on the best loadout for each weapon! Some players are rather aggressive with the Splattershot Jr., loading it with Comeback and Quick Respawn! However, some patterns do emerge in which abilities are used the most by players at this level. From these tendencies and advice from various profreshional players, one can deduce which abilities each weapon would benefit the most from.
In the meantime, I will go ahead and add these tables, either along with or within a "Quick Facts" section, possibly in tabular format, as a quick reference for players.

Sounds good! Thanks for expanding the wiki! 👍 Heddy (talk) 03:04, 26 January 2020 (UTC)

Redirect fix on my User Page.

Thank you for fixing the FishFry Visor link on my page! It is great to have supportive people on this wiki! P.J. GT (talk) 18:41, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

I'm happy to help! Heddy (talk) 22:31, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

Sorry...=

I didn't mean to mess up the Inkling page. I was surprised that it let me edit. Thanks for reverting it! I won't do it again.{{SUBST:nostubst|User:InkyBlack/Splatoon 2}} 16:35, 12 June 2020 (UTC)InkyBlack

No need to apologize! Everyone makes mistakes. Heddy (talk) 16:36, 12 June 2020 (UTC)

About the staff page

Is someone editing the status of the staff page? I’ve noticed that all the status things say fully active, although some of the users are more in the partially active-to inactive range. Should someone edit that or are we just ignoring that? FLAME1232S2 Weapon Main Hero Roller Lv. 2.png(Talk) 01:47, 1 July 2020 (UTC)

@FLAME1232 Personally, I haven't bothered updating the status, because I think one week is too short of a time frame to change someone's status. Maybe I'll just change the definitions. 🤔 Heddy (talk) 02:09, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
Alright, that seems reasonable, but some of the admins haven’t edited for awhile. They might just be here patrolling or something though. That wouldn’t surprise me. But yes, changing the definitions might be good. FLAME1232S2 Weapon Main Hero Roller Lv. 2.png(Talk) 13:46, 1 July 2020 (UTC)

Chicken V. Egg 2020

I added the chicken v. Egg 2020 stuff, and it’s ready for the main page. FLAME1232S2 Weapon Main Hero Roller Lv. 2.png(Talk) 12:51, 21 July 2020 (UTC)

@FLAME1232 Woooo! I'm so happy to wake up to Splatfest news! Thanks for updating the Splatfest box for the main page. Heddy (talk) 13:05, 21 July 2020 (UTC)
I can’t wait either! FLAME1232S2 Weapon Main Hero Roller Lv. 2.png(Talk) 13:06, 21 July 2020 (UTC)

Weapons Data

Greetings. I am in the process of creating Competitive-focused pages for each weapon in Splatoon and Splatoon 2, such as this one:

Competitive:Splattershot Jr.

Among the sections I copied from the original page for the weapon was the Data. In my humble opinion, this section is of great importance to profreshional players, especially after a version update. ShaharSig2.pngShaharSigtalk2.png wrote to me that you are responsible for the Data sections for each weapon. I thought that it would be easier for players of all skill levels to follow if the data were in tabular form. Is this possible? If so, is there any way you can help me do this?

DaDoc540 (talk) 20:00, 13 August 2020 (UTC)

@DaDoc540 It would be easiest if you make a table template for the data. That way, you wouldn't have to do any manual work on pages. Are you familiar with wiki templates? Take a look at Template:Charger data for example, you could create a new template based on that, just with a table instead of sentences. You might also want to look at how SmashWiki does table templates. Heddy (talk) 03:26, 14 August 2020 (UTC)

InklingFixer User Page

The User InklingFixer has The Inkipedia’s Main Page in his/her user page and I don’t know if it’s correct to have it, can you check it please?, I only want to help, Thanks! Splatoon635 (talk) 14:41, 2 September 2020 (UTC)

@Splatoon635 That's a strange thing to have on his user page! But it's okay, as long as they're not breaking any of Inkipedia's rules. Heddy (talk) 05:46, 3 September 2020 (UTC)

That's because InklingFixer is blocked FYI. P.J. GT (talk) 13:11, 3 September 2020 (UTC)

Potential vandal.

This new user: "OwenMinor26" seems suspicious. Could be a possible vandal. Can you block them? P.J. GT (talk) 01:41, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

Yeah, that user name is suspiciously similar to other blocked user names. But I don't want to block unless a rule is broken. Heddy (talk) 02:03, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

Porn image.

There is still a porn image from the recent vandal depicting Daisy. Can you delete it? P.J. GT (talk) 20:59, 10 September 2020 (UTC)

HELP

User Oscahienfan posted my full name on his talk page so can you please delete the history and block him. He has my full name as his username too so could you please help me? Thanks! Eminence S2 Brand Takoroka.png (Chatter) 17:16, 1 October 2020 (UTC)

P.S. I think he regrets it.

Okay, the page is deleted. The account will be renamed. Heddy (talk) 21:05, 1 October 2020 (UTC)

Splatfest

I am going to rename Super Mushroom vs. Super Star to Super Mushroom vs. Super Star (2021) for consistency. Eminence S2 Brand Takoroka.png (Chatter) 00:23, 2 October 2020 (UTC)

I reverted your move because there is no reason for the "2021" at the end. I'm just reminding you to ask an admin first, OK? P.J. GT (talk) 00:37, 2 October 2020 (UTC)

But every other splatfest page has the year at the end. Eminence S2 Brand Takoroka.png (Chatter) 01:14, 2 October 2020 (UTC)
We only use parenthesis when there are two or more articles with the same name. You can look at the Splatfest events category to easily see which ones have parenthesis. Heddy (talk) 02:18, 2 October 2020 (UTC)
Oh alright sorry. Eminence S2 Brand Takoroka.png (Chatter) 12:46, 2 October 2020 (UTC)

Admin notice

I have an idea for a notice to be placed on every admin’s user page!

Judd S2.png This user is an admin!

Please respect this user, because they have worked very hard to get where they are. As a reward, they have special powers.
Read about them here.

Like it?
Octoseeker close up 3.jpeg エスクヰト・美奈(FemaleUser.png) 05:17, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

Every person should be treated in a respectful manner. Admins have a strong say about matters but they are people too and can make mistakes. I don't think a notice about the difference between certain functions the admins can do is very welcoming. ShaharSig2.pngShaharSigtalk2.png 07:22, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
I agree with Shahar. Everyone should be respected equally. I don't see admin rights as a reward, they are just tools given to users to aid the wiki. Heddy (talk) 13:42, 15 October 2020 (UTC)

Strange Agent 3 trivia.

The user: “Atr” put some strange trivia on the Agent 3 page stating they are a DJ in the Octo Expansion (via the S2 Art book). I didn’t believe it, so I undid their edit, FYI. Could you look this up? Thanks. P.J. GT (talk) 14:05, 15 October 2020 (UTC)

I skimmed through the Splatoon 2 art book and couldn't find that. They should add a citation with a page number. Heddy (talk) 00:28, 16 October 2020 (UTC)

Thanks! The S2 art book articles are in desperate need of new info JSYK (Just So You Know). Could this be a current project? P.J. GT (talk) 00:40, 16 October 2020 (UTC)

Anything that needs work now or in the future can be on the current projects page. It would be helpful if you leave a message on the art book talk page saying what info is needed. Heddy (talk) 15:03, 16 October 2020 (UTC)

Blocking minor vandalism

I saw that you blocked the User:D after a single edit without any warnings or notice. INK:BLOCK policy indicates that instant block would only occur in rare cases that are more clear about their intention. I'm sure that if they had time to reply or repeat their intentions, it would've been a clearer case. Thanks. ShaharSig2.pngShaharSigtalk2.png 10:22, 13 November 2020 (UTC)

That's clearly vandalism. No warning necessary. Heddy (talk) 14:32, 13 November 2020 (UTC)

New vandal!

This user: “Splatoon2forever” is vandalizing. Can you block them? P.J. GT (talk) 15:09, 13 November 2020 (UTC)

Blog

How do I make a blog with OctoKing,it is going to be about the manga and maybe if sploon characters joined the wiki--Prinz The Overlord 21:55, 20 November 2020 (UTC)

@Prinz The Overlord You can make a page in blog space by starting the page title with Blog:. I hope this helps! Heddy (talk) 02:58, 21 November 2020 (UTC)

Im confused --Prinz The Overlord 10:09, 21 November 2020 (UTC)

About what? Heddy (talk) 13:50, 21 November 2020 (UTC)

Making the blog,I am kinda flustered on this wiki-Appaerently i intimidated a user :( i didnt know what i was doing was wrong.--Prinz The Overlord 14:35, 21 November 2020 (UTC)

Just take it step by step. First look at the other blog pages if you need inspiration. Then enter a page like "Blog:BlogName" in the search bar and follow the link to create the page. Then write whatever you want there! Heddy (talk) 15:13, 21 November 2020 (UTC)
