Adding music files to infoboxes

Hey, I saw you note that you don't know how to add music files to infoboxes in your Octavio fight page edit summary. If you're interested in learning, it looks like the problem you hit is you typed

"|{{MediaLoader|file=File:S3_DJ_Octavio_Battle.mp3"

instead of:

"|music={{MediaLoader|file=File:S3_DJ_Octavio_Battle.mp3"

the infobox wasn't given a parameter title for the information added, ("music" here), so it couldn't display what you added. Also note I'm omitting the closing brackets for readability.

For future endeavors in adding media files to infoboxes, typing just |music=[[File:Mp3_file_example.mp3]] rather than using the MediaLoader template should work. MediaLoader is used when there are a lot of music files in one page, so it doesn't make people's devices lag. If there's only a couple songs to display on a page, you don't really need it.

Also, Mission/Boss pages typically have a link to the page about the song that plays in them rather than a media player for the song, so it's not necessary to add the media file itself. But thanks for your work on the page! Wonderful job with the quotes Yoshifan52 (talk) 22:27, 12 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you so much for the help! I am gonna go edit and put the file now. KPOfficial26 (talk) 23:12, 12 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Glad I could help! And there's no need, I already caught it ^_^ Yoshifan52 (talk) 01:44, 13 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Great job with the quotes!!

You're doing an awesome job adding the RoTM quotes! I'd love to help out if you need a hand! Just let me know if there's anything specific I can do. S3 Badge Nautilus 47 5.pngFancyRatCredits - Inkling Boy Eating Popsicle.png 22:00, 14 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oh, thank you so much! Unexpectedly, I am much younger than you think I might be, but I get my quotes from when I play my games. I already finished 100% of the story mode, but I look up YouTube videos to try to remember where the Fuzzy Ooze was supposed to be until Agent 3 cleared them up. And yes, you can help if you want. I am up to Level 0109, but I have a project called Project: Dialogue Bot. And yes, someday I might be making a bot account to automatically add quotes when I'm inactive. So, thank you for the compliment! KPOfficial26 (talk) 11:57, 15 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

In-line images

Hi, I undid your edits because you were not following the Manual of Style. It states that in-line images shouldn't be put in paragraphs. Please read about it here: Manual of Style. Thanks! Islar74 (talk) 20:29, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You're right, when I signed up, I didn't read the manual of style. Thank you for the undo and the reminder anyways! KPOfficial26 (talk) 20:43, 2 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sourcing

Hello. I noticed for the source of S3 Mincemeat Tricolor.jpg was listed as 'Unknown'. If you captured the file yourself, use "self" as the source. Otherwise, this file should be deleted if it cannot have proper attribution. Thanks! Trig - 17:57, 12 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

About your edits to the "Names in other languages" sections.

Hello, thank you for your help and contributions! I had to undo/change some of your edits in the "Names in other languages" section of Dark Chocolate vs. Milk Chocolate vs. White Chocolate because there were a couple of things that were off and needed adjusting

For translations, I noticed you talked about using Google Translate. While in some cases, that's not a big deal, translation tools are notorious for being inaccurate, especially when the context is not there. For the Japanese translation, "Chocolate is this, after all!" comes off as a bit too literal of a translation and does not make the same amount of sense for English-speakers. However, I am not learning Japanese, so who am I to say what that really means. In this case, however, I'm going off both what native speakers have translated for the Korean/Chinese versions (since those tend to be closer to the original text) and this blog post about how the word "yappari" is used, specifically the section about emphasizing one's opinion. I feel that in cases where translation tools seem to spout nonsense, it's best to leave the section blank with a {{Translation needed}} template on top for someone else to handle. If you really want to see blank sections filled up, though, I'd recommend looking into DeepL, as that does a better job in translating Japanese, although it's still far from perfect.

Also, there is no need to translate the "vs." in every language, since social media posts from Nintendo themselves tend to use the abbreviation regardless of language. (Examples: Japanese, Traditional Chinese, Dutch, European French).

Again, thank you for helping fill out that section of the article. Just keep this in mind when editing in the future! StarAdamStar (talk) 06:33, 13 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Autopatrolled status

Hey KPOfficial26, I added you to the autopatrol group. This means that staff will no longer be required to review your edits. There are no other changes. Users are generally placed in this group when they are active, experienced, and extremely unlikely to breach Inkipedia policy. Let me know if you have any questions, and have fun editing! Heddy (talk) 01:55, 16 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you! I am so glad that I can finally have the right to edit without admins reviewing edits. I might set up the next April Fools' Day joke for Inkipedia. Maybe there'll be a scavenger hunt where we could be able to try to find Agent 8 to get an early copy of Side Order. How about that? KPOfficial26 (talk) 02:30, 16 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Usage of Google Translate

Hey, it looks like in this edit you removed a translation done by a user experienced in translating from Japanese in favor of a machine translation. Recently we've been trying to limit the amount of machine translations added to articles in favor of human translations, given the amount of experienced translators of many different languages that are active on the wiki. I doubt you were aware of this situation, nor the fact you were removing a more accurate translation, but try to not do this again. Thanks! Yoshifan52 (talk) 19:09, 23 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Come Back to Inkipedia Newsline!

I'm sorry about the surprising move! I wasn't expecting it either! Please come back! Here's the new link: [[User:Octopedia/Inkipedia Newsline:Main Page]]

Fake Contacts images removal

Hello there. I saw that you added promo pics to the Fake Contacts page. I removed them due to being non-notable, as we would bloat the page with pics of bareheaded Inkling/Octolings otherwise. It was discussed on Inkipedia Discord here.

You might did not notice it earlier, but there's an editor note:

Due to the nature of the item, only put equipment menu screens (one per game) displaying the player character wearing the Fake Contacts. 

Regards,

Exaskliri (they/them) (talk | contribs) 16:30, 6 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm sorry, I thought we can add images. I'll be more careful next time. KPOfficial26 (talk) 18:11, 6 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hello! Would it be alright if I added a screenshot of what they look like as a locker item to the gallery? They have their own case that isn't seen anywhere else. S3 Badge Nautilus 47 5.pngFancyRatCredits - Inkling Boy Eating Popsicle.png 18:20, 6 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think so... KPOfficial26 (talk) 18:30, 6 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It's a locker item? If so, yeah, it's notable and the pic of it may be added. — Exaskliri (they/them) (talk | contribs) 20:33, 6 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please do not remove

In this edit you removed the hidden explainer telling that the regions of that language share the same name. Could you please refrain from removing them? Without that explainer, people might wonder if that language hasn't been added.

I also have to asked why you changed the translation I left. Yours seems highly machine-translated. So I have to ask; are you using machine-translation? If you do, please leave the translating to people that speak the language because machine translation doesn't (always) leave the desired translation. Islar74 (talk) 14:53, 31 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Okay, I'll stop machine-translating for now by your request. Instead, I'll add "Pending from translator". Is that okay for you? KPOfficial26 (talk) 14:58, 31 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If something has not been translated, leave it blank. Someone will eventually get around to it, no need for anything else. Machine translations are not acceptable and should never be used. EminenceTalk 17:58, 31 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Additionally, could you please revert any translations you made using machine translations? Thanks! EminenceTalk 17:58, 31 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I don't remember which translations I've done in the past, but the most recent I've done is the See-an-Enemy HUD. KPOfficial26 (talk) 18:19, 31 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You could go through your contributions and check out your edits. If any of the edit summaries mention translations then you probably should revert them. Hope this helps! Odd S2 Splatfest Icon McNuggets.png (Talk) 18:49, 31 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Misic Files needing updating

Hey, is it possible for you to find and upload the proper in-game versions of City of Color (2023) and Tomorrow's Nostalgia Today like you did with the new Sizzle Season music? (As those song's current versions are just ripped from their respective YouTube videos.) P.J. GT(talk)SSBU Inkling Boy.png 00:50, 3 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I will try, but I don't know where to rip the music files in-game. In fact, I am not a dataminer at all. Instead, Leanny on GitHub actually datamines it and I just get the files from there. Maybe try to get in touch with him to add music files to his datamine? KPOfficial26 (talk) 00:56, 3 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh. I thought you could find the ripped files from YouTube like, I "think" you did with the new Lobby music from Sizzle Season. Apologies if you take this as me being lazy. P.J. GT(talk)SSBU Inkling Boy.png 01:06, 3 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok, I recently asked LeanYoshi to update the database with music. I hope I can reach out to him. KPOfficial26 (talk) 11:08, 3 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please do not add leaked information regarding upcoming features

Hey KPOfficial26, I've had to revert this edit of yours; please only add datamined information after the related content has been officially released in-game, and only if you have a reliable associated source. Thanks! Yoshifan52 (talk) 20:35, 3 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Update on this: I've discussed with staff on the matter, and you would be in the clear to re-add the datamined Challenges information if you were to include reliable sources. If you've obtained this data yourself or through individuals that don't make public posts on the matter then I'm afraid it will have to stay removed from the page until the equivalent official reveals (in-game or otherwise).

Low-res images from Twitter

Small heads up, I noticed that some of the images you upload from Twitter (here & here) aren't full-resolution. If you want to get full-resolution images from Twitter, make sure to open the image in a new tab (url should start with https://pbs.twimg.com/media/) and change the ?format=jpg&name=___ at the end of the url from anything like name=900x900 or name=large to ?format=jpg&name=orig. Thanks! Cackle Cackle Team Aliens head icon.png (talk) 01:38, 26 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Main Page Eggstra Work Template Edit

Hi there, I reverted one of your edits to the Main Page/Eggstra Work template. A staff member already had to undo an identical edit once, so please do not add the specials again until the event starts. Datamined content like this should not be added to the main page. Thanks!

Eye Customization Images

Hello, I noticed you uploaded a bunch of transparent versions of the eye customization options for S3. I'm just wondering, where did you get the images from? And do you know if they were edited at all? S3 Badge Nautilus 47 5.pngFancyRatCredits - Inkling Boy Eating Popsicle.png 21:29, 30 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

These uploads have all been reverted due to signs of image editing and uncertainty about the origins of the images. EminenceTalk 21:38, 30 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That's an in-game sprite. Maybe if it's real we could call over the uploader of the transparent skin tone images? KPOfficial26 (talk) 22:48, 30 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm going to discuss with Adalent right now. Hopefully he still is online. KPOfficial26 (talk) 22:51, 30 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The images you uploaded were not only transparent, but also showed clear signs of image editing and cutting. Neither of these are allowed on the wiki per the image policy. EminenceTalk 23:25, 30 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If you don't see, go to this link: Flexlion Save Editor
Press the Player Settings button, then scroll down for Eye color. I directly copied from there. KPOfficial26 (talk) 00:49, 1 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Those images are clearly modified and are different from what is displayed in-game. Thus, they are unfit to be added to the wiki. Please do not add images to the wiki unless you are 100% confident that they are not modified from official content. EminenceTalk 01:03, 1 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If you are right, then how do the skin tones icon images don't get reverted?! KPOfficial26 (talk) 01:05, 1 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm waiting on confirmation from Adalent. EminenceTalk 01:21, 1 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Removing translations

Hey KPOfficial26. In this edit, you removed/modified all Russian translations on this page. These translations were added by a trusted editor who is fluent in the Russian language. I have re-added those translations, but continuing this edited behavior may result in a block. Thanks! EminenceTalk 13:19, 7 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi there, wondering about the deletion

I noticed that you marked my version of the Painbrush Nouveau promo for deletion. I was wondering why, because mine seemed completely fine. The video quality was good, and it wasn't too big to handle. I noticed that as you requested deletion on mine, you made your own with a different name, and they seem the exact same. Didn't make sense to me personally because mine was made first; you can check, and I really wanted my help to be like, there. (Even if it was really small). Just wanted to know, Stay Fresh!

A similar copy had been uploaded before you uploaded yours. It had the correct name, and many others stayed up on the wiki. I know it is the same thing, but I had uploaded your version on the original file. Don't worry, just use next time something that start with "File:S3 <Weapon> model rotating.mp4".
