Licensing and vandalism

Please do not remove licensing from files and especially do not vandalise other images. Thanks,

Inkling luke.png Inkling talk.png 15:10, 2 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A reminder of the above. Any image depicting Nintendo's intellectual property needs to be tagged with the fair use template, please do not change this. Heddy (talk) 23:59, 3 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

My files and copyright

My files are in the public domain and can be used for any means without any permission whatsoever unless such permission is required in that country by law. InklingFixer (talk) 22:32, 2 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There is already a public domain template found at [[Template:PD]]. I added it to your images, and I'll be deleting Template:Publicdomain. Inkling luke.png Inkling talk.png 23:30, 2 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey There! Admins changing licensing on my files😡😡😡😡😡 I am so mad!

I shouldn't be blocked right now! Those are user files of mine in the public domain and an admin just changed licensing on them for literally no reason and blocked me! Those are my files and I can chose if they are copyrighted or not! Please unblock me now! --InklingFixer (talk) 04:02, 5 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Someone edited my user page

Heddy somehow bypassed an automated filter and edited my user page! Unacceptable! InklingFixer (talk) 06:33, 5 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There is no filter for editing other user pages. People have agreed to only edit other user pages if it's necessary Fumple (talk) 12:47, 5 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

If I try to edit someone else's user page it will say ERROR: an automated filler is keeping you from editing this its editing someone else's user page --InklingFixer (talk) 16:33, 5 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Admin Request

InklingFixer (talk | contribs | logs) I am a very consistent editor that is very good at spotting fatal errors in articles. InklingFixer (talk) 06:30, 5 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I have made many great edits in the past.


I will fix more errors and add more content.

From what I understand, you've vandalized files on multiple instances and have a very, very loose grasp of copyright laws. Just because you uploaded the files, that doesn't mean they are in the public domain! If they are screenshots from a Nintendo video game, then they are treated by this wiki as fair use. ShinyCelesteela (talk) 11:00, 5 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Same, screenshots from the game are considered copyrighted, even if you took them yourself! Fumple (talk) 12:49, 5 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Not if I release them into the public domain! --InklingFixer (talk) 16:47, 5 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No, that's not how that works. If the file contains anything Nintendo related, for example, if it's a screenshot of something in the Splatoon franchise, that makes it copyrighted. Since Nintendo copyrighted its games, that automatically makes the file copyrighted. You can't just "release them into the public domain" like that. --SundaeSquidS Weapon Main Octobrush.pngTalk 00:54, 6 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

How come my error messages are still in the public domain?--InklingFixer (talk) 16:50, 5 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

^^^ No offense, but I agree with ShinyCelesteela. The staff had warned you several times about your file vandalism and public domain templates, but you ignored them anyway (which is why you are blocked). Also, you are still a fairly new user on here. It isn't that easy to just become an admin the moment you join. And this is kind of off-topic but you got mad at Heddy for editing your user page, but that was because a file on that page was deleted since it was a duplicate of an already existing file. He's an admin. He can do that. --SundaeSquidS Weapon Main Octobrush.pngTalk 12:55, 5 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please unblock me now! I shouldn't be blocked! Those are my images and I decided they are in the public domain and you can't change that! So it's the admins that are vandalizing! --InklingFixer (talk) 16:15, 5 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Created user page

Basically blocked me for nothing.

You basically blocked me for uploading files into the public domain which is allowed.

Fatal anti-copyright error

Could not read above message carefully, this person does not like copyright. Person uploads all files into public domain. Now waiting for block expiration. --InklingFixer (talk) 17:01, 5 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

That isn't. How. Copyright. Works. Yes, you uploaded the images, but as pretty much everyone else has pointed out, they are images of Nintendo's intellectual property. If you don't like copyright, then that's fine, but merely disliking the law doesn't change it. If you upload a screenshot from the Splatoon video game, then it is fair-use. It doesn't matter who uploaded them. ShinyCelesteela (talk) 20:02, 5 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

ShinyCelesteela you don't know tha because your not an admin. --InklingFixer (talk) 05:22, 9 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You dont have to be an admin to know how basic copyright laws work. According to your logic, you're not an admin so you wouldn't know either. If you're just going to keep on arguing and ignoring all of our messages, then fine. You do you. --SundaeSquidS Weapon Main Octobrush.pngTalk 07:39, 9 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I didn't want to get into this conversation when the answer has already been given by others several times, but here we are. Our file upload page explicitly states, and I quote, "Please provide licensing information for the upload from the dropdown menu. If it is a screenshot from Splatoon, the correct choice is Fair Use." The Fair Use box, when selected, states "This file is copyrighted. It will be used in a way that qualifies as fair use under US copyright law."
This is how the law works around screenshots from an existing property, and neither you nor I can change this just because you want to. This is a non-topic by now and I believe it does not justify any further arguments. Thank you. GloverMist (talk) 08:48, 9 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It says US law, but I live in Canada, so what am I supposed to do now? --InklingFixer (talk) 22:50, 9 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Well, this wiki, as far as I can tell, is following the US laws, but doing a little bit of research, even under Canadian copyright laws, images from the Splatoon series and other Nintendo video games would not be considered public domain, as they are copyrighted by Nintendo, and it hasn't been 50 years since publication or the death of the creator. ShinyCelesteela (talk) 23:17, 9 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That's exactly it. To be fair, I live in the UK, but things don't change - you still have to follow how this wiki operates. That's just how it works, sorry. Also, could you add an extra colon at the start of each response, like mine, so it's clear which message you're responding to? Thanks. GloverMist (talk) 11:03, 10 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

How come I can release error messages into the public domain? --InklingFixer (talk) 20:15, 5 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Because from what I understand, those error messages on your user page aren't screenshots from a copyrighted Nintendo game like your other files were. In fact, I don't even know where those error messages were taken from, so I honestly don't know if they're copyrighted or not. --SundaeSquidS Weapon Main Octobrush.pngTalk 01:00, 6 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The error messages are my own work so they are not copyrighted. When I am unblocked I'll delete the Inklings section from my user page because I want all my files in the public domain. --InklingFixer (talk) 22:33, 6 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please stop forgeting

Please stop forgetting to put ~~~~ everytime you respond to something, it helps everyone. Fumple (talk) 16:36, 5 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

At least my error messages were able to defend themselves

Good job error messages for staying in the public domain. --InklingFixer (talk) 18:18, 5 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Names in other languages

Please don't add or change translations unless you can fluently read and write in the language. Google translate or other machine translation is not acceptable. Thanks! Heddy (talk) 05:00, 21 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Meanings in other languages

What translating machine do you use to get the translations if Google Translate is not acceptable? --InklingFixer (talk) 03:17, 22 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

None, we ask community members who speak that language to translate them so we don't have any errors as Google Translate is known for wrong translations. FunPL#0529 (talk) 04:35, 22 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

But if Japanese インク means ink and Japanese リング means ring then インクリング means ink ring. --InklingFixer (talk) 04:48, 22 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ask them what ink ring is in Japanese --InklingFixer (talk) 04:50, 22 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

E-liter 4K

A'ight so two things:

  1. It's spelled "E-liter 4K" in-game. It doesn't matter if it's a misspelling, if that's the name of the weapon, it's the name of the weapon.
  2. But it's not even a misspelling! In the United States, the "liter" spelling, with the r after the e, is generally more commonly used, and Splatoon 2 simply follows suit.

ShinyCelesteela (talk) 18:28, 1 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

+ From me, if an admin made an edit it is most likely correct. If you don't know if a person is an admin just go to Special:UserRights. FunPL#0529 (talk) 18:31, 1 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Manga issues

Hi there. Just wanted to let you know that your beliefs over the creation and licensing of the Splatoon manga are, unfortunately, incorrect and your insistence on implementing this is currently having a detrimental effect on the wiki. The manga is produced by a third party with explicit permission and official licensing from Nintendo - they're the same company who has published several Nintendo-related manga and books in the past. Indeed, even local Nintendo accounts have covered it, as seen here, for example. Additionally, as I stated on my talk page, there are no errors in the reading orientation of the manga, especially in the native Japanese-language version.

In short, if a member of staff such as me reverts one of your edits for reasons such as these, please don't change it back without bringing it up in talk first. It just helps prevent potential edit wars. I hope you bear these facts in mind for the future! GloverMist (talk) 22:43, 5 December 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You don't get it, the video you listed shows Nintendo getting brainwashed by the manga thinking it's a wonderful thing when in reality, it violates Nintendo's trademarks. Oh, and the CoroCoro gear in the first Splatoon game was created to violate CoroCoro's trademarks because Nintendo's trademarks got violated by CoroCoro. --InklingFixer (talk) 01:13, 6 December 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Custom signatures

How do you create custom username signatures such as " GloverMist (talk)"? --InklingFixer (talk) 00:37, 6 December 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Plural for "manga"

I've noticed an error with the plural of the word "manga" in your talk page. The plural of manga is "mangas" not "manga". --InklingFixer (talk) 00:43, 6 December 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Error categories and more

I removed your error categories since they serve no purpose on the wiki.

I also ask that you stop stating that the manga is unofficial, because it's not and you've been given evidence of that.

Thanks, Inkling luke.png Inkling talk.png 22:37, 8 December 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This site here says the following:
The unofficial Splatoon manga that's been serialized in Japan's Corocoro Comic magazine since 2015 is getting an official English-language release later this year, publisher Viz Media confirmed today. The all-ages comic based on the original Wii U game focuses on four Inklings caught up in the Splatoon Turf War.

That's... not what the source says though. In fact, it explicitly says the opposite - that the manga is official. Not that there was ever any question about it anyway. Please stop trying to argue this now. GloverMist (talk) 18:22, 9 December 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

CoroCoro error

Stop x nuvola.png

Did you know that CoroCoro has violated many of Nintendo's trademarks? Here's a quote from Nintendo's website:

CoroCoro has violated many of our trademarks over the past and therefore we're planning on suing CoroCoro on the damages that CoroCoro has done.

Why am I blocked?

For some reason, GuyPerfect blocked me for the following reason:

Destructive behavior, spreading of misinformation, ignores warnings and reprimands, general nuisance
— Block message when I try to edit Inkipedia

But I wasn't doing any of the things mentioned above, and the block was unexpected because GuyPerfect didn't leave a message on my talk page about the block. Plus, I've made huge contributions to lobby.

  • Block ID is #1400
  • Expiration of block: infinite

Ok, I really didn't want to get into this, and InklingFixer does ignore the copyright warnings, but if I could see what InklingFixer wrote on what page, maybe we could work this out?? Maybe. Splatfan09 (SplatTalk) 22:04, 17 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
And, How were they being destructive and spreading of misinformation? I don't see that anywhere. Splatfan09 (SplatTalk) 05:06, 18 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If I see the date of the discution, InklingFixer was being Destructive in 2019, if Im correct, he is currently blocked and his editions was reverted, so, InklingFixer cant do anything, so this discution was finished along time ago, so I think its resolved now :) --Splatoon635
