Patroller rights

Hey Inkrid, me and the other Inkipedia staff think your edits are consistently high quality and do not need to be reviewed. Normally, every edit made on the wiki needs to be manually reviewed and approved ("patrolled") by staff. But with your approval, we could give you patroller rights, which would automatically mark your edits as patrolled. Patroller rights also include the rollback feature for quickly reverting vandalism, and the ability to patrol other editors' edits for good faith, but using these features isn't required. Let me know if you're okay with being promoted to the patroller group! Thanks, Heddy (talk) 23:07, 26 January 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sure! I'm honored =) LMK if you need me to help out with the actual patrolling as well -Inkrid (talk) 13:39, 28 January 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Promoted! I've added you to the patroller list table that shows up on the staff page; feel free to add info there if you want. Heddy (talk) 14:49, 28 January 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

IRS Squid buddy

I see you've updated your info in patrollers list to be from Israel. I'm also from Israel! Contact me in discord (shachar700#3810) if you wanna talk where from Israel you are and play sometimes. ShaharSig2.pngShaharSigtalk2.png 12:29, 30 January 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

JP Splatfest Quotes

Hello, regarding the JP Splatfest quotes, both the announcement and results are done, with the expressions that are available in the template (there are still some missing). But I have a problem with quotes beyond row 16 for the "announcement" since the template only supports 16 rows, and I don't know what to do to include those?

Also, I not sure if I have time to do complete translations for those yet, so feel free to translate them. Though, if you're busy, then I would do it later down the line.-Hinamin (talk) 12:35, 12 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Great! I'll take care of adding it / adding the missing translations, no problem. The template currently supports only 16 lines for each character, though there's a few ways to bypass it. Usually what I do is take a line that Pearl says alone which is followed by one Marina says alone and consolidate them into one pair (even though it should be Quote - "-", "-" - Quote). Thanks for all the help! Woohoo we're done! -Inkrid (talk) 12:45, 12 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Help with images from Twitter

Hey Inkrid! Thanks so much for the help with the image upload advice you gave me. I think I've finally got the hang of it! But regarding images from Twitter, when I try to add the suffix ":orig", it won't let me access the picture further, as it seems to hate the suffix orig. Is there a way to bypass this, or this is just a problem with mobile editors? Adamsquid (talk) 03:52, 29 April 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Glad to have been of help. It's probably a problem with your browser - when I do it in Chrome (on desktop), the file is saved with the extension .jpg_orig, but renaming it to have .jpg fixes the problem. I suggest you download a file browser app for your smartphone (or figure out if your mobile browser has a "Save as..." option which would allow you to change the file extension. -Inkrid (talk) 09:01, 29 April 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hi Inkrid,

Please could you help me edit my userpage to get the userbox like yours.

Thanks, Adster1005       17:24, 7 May 2018 (UTC)

Sure, I'll have a look. -Inkrid (talk) 07:57, 8 May 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

How to upload screenshots

The title is pretty self-explanatory, and I really just want to know how to do it, so I can help out a lot more than I already am. Thanks for properly telling me how to upload images from everywhere else though :)

Hi Adamsquid! There are a few ways to upload screenshots from the game. Listed from the one resulting in highest quality to lowest:
  • With a capture card:
    • If you have a capture card, you can use it to upload a full-res, full quality png screenshot by, well, capturing a screenshot
    • If your capture card does not support screenshots, you can also take a still image from a video. If the capture card saves video in a raw (i.e. uncompressed) format, it will be the same quality as the previous option. Otherwise, it will be slightly lower quality.
  • Using the Switch's built-in screenshot button:
    • If your Switch has an SD card you can get the files from the Nintendo/Album folder on the SD card by attaching a card reader (about $1-2 on eBay / AliExpress for a USB one, and most laptops have a built-in reader) to your computer. There is some quality loss since the screenshots are taken in 720p as well as being compressed to jpg format. This is the one I personally use, since I do not own a capture card.
    • If you do not have an SD card, you can share images from your Switch by connecting your Nintendo account to a social media account (typically, Twitter). However, this will compound the already-compressed screenshot with even more compression on Twitter's servers which causes visible graphical artefacts.
Unrelated side note, when you make a post on a talk page, add four tildes (~~~~) at the end to add your signature and writing time, like this ---> Inkrid (talk) 13:23, 20 May 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hope this was helpful!
Thanks a bunch, and I'll make sure to use the four tildes. Things occasionally slip my mind... Adamsquid (talk) 19:35, 20 May 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]


In your recent addition to [Template:Ink]], I noticed that you spelled neutral wrong. When I try to edit it though, it does a template loop. Could that be a problem just for me or for everyone? If it's just me, could you (or someone reading this) correct it? Thank you. Flame(Talk) 03:46, 29 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Would you know how to have images shown by a template depend on the parameters put in?

I know that it was done in Template:Cost, and I've been trying to do the same for Template:TableturfDeck, to display the card icons beside each card's pattern. However, when I tried the following code, the images wouldn't load in, leaving normal text where they should be. Would you know what to do, or was it not you who added the image-parameter functionality to Template:Cost?

Note: This was adapted from code written by User:Gomtuu.

Lapsem (talk) 20:47, 25 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I think it's a peculiarity with the order things are evaluated when images, tables, and templates are mixed together in MediaWiki. Template:Cost was created before my latest edits of it, but I don't think it's quite the same situation here.
Anyway, I tried messing around with things (e.g. adding the images inside Template:TableturfCardShape and previewing your template's page with it) and it seems the hiccup comes from the fact that you're using unnamed parameters. It seems to have worked if I changed it to look like this:

{| class="wikitable sitecolor-s3" style="text-align:center"
|- {{#if: {{{name|}}} | | style="display:none;"}}
! colspan="3" |{{{name|}}}
| style="width: 33%;" |[[File:S3 Tableturf Battle card {{{card1|}}}.png|64px]] {{TableturfCardShape|{{{card1|}}}}}{{{card1|}}}
| style="width: 33%;" |[[File:S3 Tableturf Battle card {{{card2|}}}.png|64px]] {{TableturfCardShape|{{{card2|}}}}}{{{card2|}}}
| style="width: 33%;" |[[File:S3 Tableturf Battle card {{{card3|}}}.png|64px]] {{TableturfCardShape|{{{card3|}}}}}{{{card3|}}}
|[[File:S3 Tableturf Battle card {{{card4|}}}.png|64px]] {{TableturfCardShape|{{{card4|}}}}}{{{card4|}}}
|[[File:S3 Tableturf Battle card {{{card5|}}}.png|64px]] {{TableturfCardShape|{{{card5|}}}}}{{{card5|}}}

|[[File:S3 Tableturf Battle card {{{card15|}}}.png|64px]] {{TableturfCardShape|{{{card15|}}}}}{{{card15|}}}
Of course, that is far less nice and useable, so you might want to chain templates, i.e. make Template:TableturfCardShapeEx containing the current template's code but with named parameters, then have Template:TableturfCardShape simply invoke the Ex version with |card1={{{1|}}} etc. Inkrid (talk) 01:22, 26 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I haven't tested this idea, but it may be that the reason why named parameters fix the problem is because whitespace is stripped from named parameters. Template:TableturfDeck uses anonymous parameters, so the newlines that follow each card name are probably being included in the image filenames. One way to test this would be to invoke Lapsem's version of the template with all the card names on one line, separated only by pipe characters.
If that works, it might be possible to avoid named parameters by stripping whitespace with Template:Trim. Gomtuu (talk) 17:33, 26 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I am attempting to follow in your footsteps and create a specific {{Infobox/Mission}} template for Return of the Mammalians. With the aid of discord user sunmarsh, I have been able to get User:Untitled Goose/Sandbox/InfoboxRotM into its current form, but I leave it to you to correctly style it the rest of the way and implement it in mainspace - provided some additional images, such as the "None" logo from S3 and a banner for "Try this!", as well as an icon for the unupgraded Hero Shot. Once this is done, I should be able to fill it out for each relevant mission with relative ease. Just a silly little goose ^.^ (talk | contribs) 06:09, 29 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Machine translations

Hey Inkrid! I noticed you were adding translations for a lot of different languages on the Shipshape Cargo Co. page. Please do not add translations for languages unless you are a fluent speaker and reader in that language. Machine translations (Google Translate, etc.) are not allowed on the wiki. Thank you! SplatunieTalkS3 Badge Heavy Edit Splatling 5.png 20:24, 17 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sorry, I missed this message - what specific translations were problematic? At most, I use a dictionary for a word or two I don't know in a few of the European languages, I never directly use a machine translator and just copy and paste it.
Personally I'm completely fluent in French and Japanese; and I have a conversational-level knowledge of Italian, Spanish and German. At worst, if I put in a translation that's not 100% accurate or misses some sort of pun, a more fluent editor can come in and fix it later. This is sometimes the case with my Dutch and Spanish edits - better to have SOME translation in the mean time than none at all IMO. Inkrid (talk) 11:12, 31 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I was talking about this edit in specific because I am a fluent in Spanish and the translation was wrong. I used Google Translate to see if what you put showed up and it did, so I assumed you machine translated the other languages. But please only translate languages you are fluent in, it's best to leave it blank for fluent speakers to translate them. Thanks!
