The talk page!

If you need to ask me about anything just type it down here. I would be delighted to help! Jacobearth (talk) 18:23, 8 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

hey Jacoberth. thanks for the little change of my wording on the new Splattershot Nova competitive page. Splattershot Nova and Splattershot Pro have very very similar ranges so I changed the word "less range" to "less accuracy" as Pro is more accurate than it. yw!

When you are trying to reply…

For the inkfest, I know you can't reply, but I found a way. Go to source editor and then put your reply at the bottom of the Topic like this: (not exactly, but the idea. :Sure, I will help with translations Again this is just an example. I do hope this helps.

Hey there! I just have a couple of small questions for you! First off, can I copy a couple of your userboxes/user tags? And I also want to add you to my friends list on Switch, so I won't have to do it later when your Inkfest starts! Thanks, and your Inkfest idea is amazing!   ArivakiVA   (talk) 19:00, 28 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes, of course you can add me on the switch! Also, I would love for you to use my userboxes, after all the whole reason I make them is so that someone else will see/use them! Jacobearth • chit-chat 00:18, 29 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Aw, thanks a lot!   ArivakiVA   (talk) 18:33, 29 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You're welcome! My userboxes are the pride and joy of my user page, so you using them is a great compliment! Jacobearth • chit-chat 19:05, 29 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello and nice to meet you!

Hello! I just wanted to say hi because i am participating in your inkfest and we seem to share quite a few opinions. Its nice to meet you! Cruelty to Salmons (talk) 19:41, 29 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's nice to meet you too! What opinions do we share? Also, I love that you are an activist for Salmonids! Jacobearth • chit-chat 21:39, 29 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hey there! I saw you were participating in the Inkfest so I made some userboxes on my sandbox! Check them out, or make some of your own! Xan 18:55, 30 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

They look amazing! I love the art you made for the second pair! Jacobearth • chit-chat 20:32, 30 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Is it ok if I add an info color to them? They would look like this:
This user fought for team Stringer in the Stringer vs. Splatana Inkfest!
Jacobearth • chit-chat 22:01, 30 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

UGHH I was looking for a color. It looks great! Add it to the sandbox if you want! Xan 23:46, 30 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ok, will do! Jacobearth • chit-chat 23:50, 30 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Also, I'd appreciate some feedback on the art if you could provide some, I promise I'm not fishing for compliment's I want to go into a graphic design field in my life so constuctive criticism would be much appreciated. Hopefully I will try to do some more art in the near future, but we'll see. Xan 00:01, 1 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I need to know what you use to make art before I can give any criticism. Jacobearth • chit-chat 00:03, 1 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ah, makes sense. I used ibis paint X on my mobile apple device. Xan 00:06, 1 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
For more additional information if needed (or any talk page stalkers), I used the fork v spoon splatfest art. Xan 00:19, 1 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh shoot, speaking of talk page stalkers, I'm trying to make a userbox for "This user stalks talk pages!" but I can't seem to figure out a good image for it. Jacobearth • chit-chat 00:29, 1 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Anyways, the only critique I have for your art is that the stringer in the stringers photo looks somewhat out of place. Was there any better brushes you could have used? Jacobearth • chit-chat 00:31, 1 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I mean, to help the stringer look more natural. Jacobearth • chit-chat 00:32, 1 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hm, maybe. I haven't tried using all the tools, I am almost completely new to the app so yeah. I'll look into it though. Thanks so much! Xan 00:34, 1 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hm, that is tricky. I'd need to sleep and get back to you on it - wikipedia uses a leopard or something I think. Xan 00:31, 1 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Alright, anyways, your art is great! Jacobearth • chit-chat 00:33, 1 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey there!

I added a tentative time to the inkfest because so many people were asking. You could edit this if you want, but I think it's what's best with our knowledge of stuff atm. Xan 15:38, 1 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Barnsquids for the inkfest.

I talked to Xan about this, but I want your opinion on this, as you are (co) host of the Splatfest. Would these be good Barnsquids photos. Stringers v Splatanas. ℂ𝕙𝕣𝕠𝕞𝕖 𝕎𝕠𝕝𝕗 (🎙) 16:57, 4 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello! I see that you are active on Inkepedia a lot, so I wanted to invite you to vote and/or participate in my inkfest! I plan for it to happen in late January (very tentative), but I just wanted to make people aware! Thanks, Xan 23:11, 18 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for asking! I would love to participate! I would like to ask, what is the context of the theme? Like, hot or cold weather, hot or cold food, or just hot or cold in general? Jacobearth • chit-chat 16:38, 19 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

S Rank???

Hi, Jacobearth! I need some tips... to become the fabled S rank! As of now I am B rank(almost B+!), but all the points I can manage in a series is, like, 85. Given that I need 70 to start a series, it's very slow going... I'm especially bad at Clam Blitz, Splat Zones is my specialty. All in all, can I get some tips? Thanks! Ink Me Up! 12:32, 20 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wow… I've never heard about S rank as "fabled", but I'll take that as a compliment! For tips, the weapons you use are perfectly fine in the current meta, so you don't have to change those. The gear you've chosen for the weapons is… questionable, but alright in my eyes (I rather like your hero shot replica gear!). As for play style tips, when you're using the Forge Pro, make sure you ink the ground a lot so you can use a lot of booyah bombs (which are VERY good). For the inkbrush, make sure you utilize the rolling mode so that you can close the gap between you and your opponents! And finally, for the Hero shot, the Trizooka is a very unreliable special, but can be very good if you use it correctly! Do NOT use it as a panic button, instead, use it to splat far away enemies! Use it only when you feel confident that you can splat someone. Hope this helps! Jacobearth • chit-chat 18:16, 21 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Uh, sorry to butt in, but just letting ya know, regarding Booyah bombs, don't use those as a panic button either, as you could still have the armor from the Booyah Bomb broken, especially if you're surrounded. It's happened to me before, so I just wanted to share! And it's easier to fire a Booyah Bomb if you don't have your view blocked. And don't use them on someone directly below you. Hope this helps, I guess!   ArivakiVA   (talk) 18:29, 21 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks! Few more questions, though. What does gear have to do with battling besides abilities(btw, I have sub defense as my main for a hat, with ninja squid for clothing, and stealth jump for shoes)? I also never use my other fits for battle, I always use my main fit. I also am using the Tentek Splattershot more, because a) the fire rate is better and b) it has a better special in my opinion because I feel I have more mobility with it and I can use it three times over the one Booyah Bomb(yes, Booyah Bomb is bigger, but aren't the Inkstrikes kind of like mini-Booyah Bombs?). Again, thank for the tips! Ink Me Up! 19:08, 21 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Abilities are really the only thing that matters for gear. Also, for the Ttek, you should consider using Special Power Up, Intensify Action Up, Run Speed Up, Sub Power Up, and Ink Saver (Sub). Jacobearth • chit-chat 19:38, 21 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Also, I would recommend watching Splatubers such as ProChara, Squid School, and ThatSrb2DUDE (otherwise known as DUDE) for more tips! Jacobearth • chit-chat 19:41, 21 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
'K, thanks! I'll be sure to go watch their channels and use those abilities if I can. Ink Me Up! 20:24, 21 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sup, Jacobearth! I have a question, can you make a userbox that says 'this user needs therapy because of Cohozuna waves'? Just wanted to ask. Happy splatting! Arivaki-Kun (banter) 18:06, 8 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Alright! I'll probably put that on my user page as well tbh. Jacobearth • chit-chat 18:10, 8 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks! I think everyone's had at least one horrible Cohozuna wave. Arivaki-Kun (banter) 18:33, 8 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yeah, it's kinda crazy! Also, I can't wait for ya to get on a comp team! You certainly have the skill lol. And hey, what if we faced each other? Jacobearth • chit-chat 03:34, 22 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Bruh, that would be awesome! And you really think I have the skill? That's a great compliment, thanks a ton! Again, good luck! And if I do ever make a comp team, I hope I'll battle you. ;) Arivaki-Kun (banter) 21:39, 28 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Splatoon tournament!

Hi! I am trying to host a tournament but I need a lot of help and I saw that you were working on the tournament project and would prob know a bit about them, also saw that you have a com team if you would like to join it (it would be the first team to join xD) Ratch 15:53, 30 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Unfortunately no, my comp team will not participate, however, I would LOVE to participate with friends here on the wiki! Jacobearth • chit-chat 21:21, 30 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
ok, if you could find 3 other people to play for a team, and this is a public thing so if you know any other comp team that want join pleas tell them or if you just know anyone who would want to Ratch 22:51, 30 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi @Jacobearth-san! Is it okay if I team up with you for the tournament? Arivaki-Kun (banter) 17:52, 31 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If he doesn't want to @ArivakiVA, i'd be willing to join, but we could also do all three of us as well. If so, we would need a fourth. -Xando (ping) 17:56, 31 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Also clarinet.octo might wanna join, if they do all 4 of you can be in a team, you just need a name for it tho Ratch 18:08, 31 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Id be down with that! What if we called our team "frostbite"? Jacobearth • chit-chat 21:28, 31 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Any particular reason for that or just for fun? I'd be down for anything, really. -Xando (ping) 12:40, 1 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
just for fun rn, but i want to try to get some real comp team in, and if I can I will add a prize Ratch 15:24, 1 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I was asking Jacobreath, but that's good to know I suppose. (But if there's a comp team in, does anyone else really stand a chance (for a prize)? -Xando (ping) 18:38, 1 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh I was thinking that this would just be an on-wiki thing lol. Jacobearth • chit-chat 19:59, 1 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Honestly I don't think the entire wiki would play xD and we need a lot of people Ratch 20:27, 1 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
True point. Also, @Jacobearth-san, @Xando-san, do you guys have any name ideas? I could think up a few in my spare time. And having Clarinet.octo with us would be pretty cool! Arivaki-Kun (banter) 21:30, 1 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ratch-san, the thing is, if we get comp teams in the tournament, it might not be entirely fair to non-comp or less skilled players who are just in this for fun. Just a thought. Arivaki-Kun (banter) 21:37, 1 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have a couple name ideas, being "DERANGED" since I don't think anyone here mains a long-ranged weapon lol. It sounds cool as well! Jacobearth • chit-chat 21:46, 1 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oof I meant to say one name idea lol. Oh well! Jacobearth • chit-chat 21:47, 1 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Jacob, I main explosher. Also, I think frostbite is a fine name, but if a better one pops into my head I'll recommend it. Another thing: maybe we could open it up to wiki editors first, then if the slots aren't filled then open it up to the public. How many teams are in this tournament anyways? 16? And will there be a loser bracket? (It wouldn't let me edit the tournament's talk page :') -Xando (ping) 21:59, 1 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ya the talk pages on like every /user page is glitched, but I want to do as many people as I can. @ArivakiVA I will prob do a fun one, the an comp one with a prize Ratch 22:14, 1 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I thought that maybe a space themed name would be nice for a team, but that's just cuz I like space. DERANGED is cool, but does a Squiffer count as long range? And @Ratch-san, a fun one and a comp one is a great idea! (I'd probably try my luck in both tournaments tbh.) Arivaki-Kun (banter) 17:51, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Deepspace Frostbite sounds pretty cool, but we can shorten it to one of the words for casually talking. -Xando (ping) 18:03, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
ok, fyi I found out about a tournament the 4th ( im going to try to watch the stream but registration is still open rn Ratch 18:09, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ooh, Deepspace Frostbite is cool! We could shorten it to 'DS (username)' or something! Arivaki-Kun (banter) 19:18, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sounds good. I suppose it would be good to change our in-game username. -Xando (ping) 21:46, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

If the battles are taking place in private mode then you can set up a nickname. A message should pop up when you join the room asking if you want to have a nickname.
