Happy Few-Days-Before-Splatfest!

Happy few-days-before-Splatfest! Has anybody had the idea yet to make a chat thread that is to be used only during splatfests all about splatfests? Or maybe a Splatfest debate thread where both teams go head to head and debate which team is better and why? O.O My random ideas of the day --PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 00:51, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

You could do a blog about it. Blogs don't see much use here (that's my fault as much as anyone else's, heh), but this seems like a good topic for one. ๐ŸŒŸ --Bzeep! talk 01:05, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
Cool, although I probably shouldn't make it if it won't get that much attention... --PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 01:11, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
Nooooooo do itttttt
If nothing else, I will provide the attention
U can rely on me, brother
--Bzeep! talk 01:31, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
not that I know how to *cough* make one anyway *cough* --PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 12:21, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

Um... Read the blog, how do I make new pages? I'm totally useless --PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 22:50, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
  1. Go to title you wanna make it)
  2. Create the page, put what you want on it
  3. Sign with squiggles so people know it's yours
  4. u did it
--Bzeep! talk 23:01, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
Done! Please tell me if it's okay... --PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 23:48, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
Ssshhhhh nooooo you did good. Just made the first comment because I have nothing better to do am procrastinating on the things I have to do --Bzeep! talk 00:22, 1 December 2015 (UTC)

What Now?

I've been adding to the ability pages and gear pages... What should I do next? I feel so useless, everyone already knows what to do. :P --PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 12:35, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Hmmm.... --PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 02:20, 26 November 2015 (UTC)
Oh sorry, just saw this now. Well if you can't think of anything to do, it's not like you have to. Just do whatever comes to mind at the moment, yknow. --Bzeep! talk 23:17, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
Should I help fill out the recommended ability section for each weapon? --PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 02:20, 26 November 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, whatever you wanna do. ๐Ÿ˜› --Bzeep! talk 04:18, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

Another Question

So, I normally access Inkipedia from my mobile device or tablet, and I've been having trouble uploading pictures, because I want to put a few on my user page. Does anybody know how to upload photos to the wiki from a device? --PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 21:31, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

Looks like it works the same as desktop, just uploaded Bzeep's userpage thing 6.jpg from an iPod Touch (betcha haven't seen one of those since, like, 2013 ๐Ÿ˜‰). Push the button, it asks for an image, take one or choose from your photo thing, yknow. --Bzeep! talk 22:27, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, so I just took a picture of my Inkling on my very old iPad as I was playing Splatoon, and so I need a URL of some sort? I'm not very good with technology obviously. --PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 22:47, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
Naw just press the thing that says "choose file" and it'll ask for it. --Bzeep! talk 22:56, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
Phew! Finally got it! --PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 23:49, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
๐Ÿ‘ --Bzeep! talk 23:58, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

How Should I Help?

So, I've been looking around Inkipedia at all of the pages. Is there anything I should do to help edit them? Where should I start? PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 15:25, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

Well, the Current projects list always has stuff to do. The easiest (and most visible) are the ones about recommended sections and gear pages. Just look at the examples given, find a page that doesn't meet the standards, and knock yourself out. Uh.. within normal limits, of course. And Maintenance has a bunch of things, too.
Oh and you'd get a lot more visibility for questions and stuff if you post them on the Ink Pump. Cuz even though I incessantly hover around the recent edits, most people.. yknow... probly don't.
except for whatever other patrollers are looking at this
h-hey buddy
--Bzeep! talk 22:27, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
Okay. Getting to work, then! :D --PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 22:48, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
Ayyy I'm pretty sure my edits are horrible. I'm not the best with descriptions. --PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 22:28, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
Aw don't worry about it man. Just follow the policy stuff and do your best, it'll be okay. Even if you do mess up or forget something, somebody'll take care of it. ๐ŸŒผ cough cough thank you azoth --Bzeep! talk 23:13, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
But seriously, are my edits okay? --PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 00:19, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
Yesssss you're fine. If nobody says anything or undoes your stuff, assume you're all good. That's what I do, at least. --Bzeep! talk 00:57, 24 November 2015 (UTC)


Okay, I'm really confused. I don't know how to work anything on the wiki, how this operates, and I'm horrible at Splatoon. I need some serious, serious help and advice.PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 02:49, 21 November 2015 (UTC)Periwinkke

Yeah the wiki can look complicated and weird at first, but it's really pretty simple. There's just two kinds of pages you need to worry about. The first is the main articles (or "mainspace"), stuff like... White Tee, Moray Towers, jellyfish, yknow. The second is Inkipedia stuff, like user pages, projects, etc. They both work the same, just hit "edit" up at the top to make changes. If you want, there's a bunch of thing to read in Help:Contents and more on MediaWiki, but here's my quick little rundown on how to add good stuff:
  • Always write in third person, no contractions.
  • Keep the aesthetics of a page in mind.
  • Lurk around other people's edits, it'll help you get a good feel for things.
  • Double check your edits! I forget this a lot haha
  • If you're not sure about something, ask about it on the Ink Pump or on the appropriate person's talk page.
Uh... as for not being good at Splatoon, get a real easy weapon and just keep playing Turf War til you feel comfortable with it. For me, that weapon's the Aerospray RG. It gets a bad rap, but it's easy to do well with.
So yeah. ๐Ÿ˜› --Bzeep! talk 04:39, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

Thanks! Looks like I just need to practice more. PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 14:14, 21 November 2015 (UTC)Periwinkle

Periwinkle reminds me of myself from when I was new to this site, back in July. If you need any help, you could come to my talk page and ask me anything that's concerning you. Stay fresh! --Sigma talk 15:08, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
Well, I think I've realized part of my problem. I seem to be splatted more in games than other inklings... My favorite weapon to use is the neo splash-o-matic, and I feel pretty comfortable with it, although I think super jumping into bad places has become a habit of mine. That, or I'm just a really bad player and I'm doomed to never be good at this, lol. But thanks for all of the helpful tips so far- I'll keep practicing and I hope to comtribute to the wiki more! PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 22:26, 21 November 2015 (UTC)Periwinkle
Hey, Periwinkle, if you'd like, I could add a Splatfest section to your page if you give me your teams and Splatfest titles. Oh, also, you could friend me and I could show you a few tips n' tricks in Splatoon. :) --Sigma talk 22:54, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
That sounds great, thanks! I started playing in late august- my first splatfest would've been Autobots vs. Deceptions, but I missed that one, and not by choice. Then I was a Science Champion, Plane Fiend, and finally a Pirate Queen. There should be another Splatfest soon, correct? They happen about once a month, I've noticed... PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 23:04, 21 November 2015 (UTC)Periwinkle
I honestly don't know how I manage to do it- I was splatted five times in my last round of Turf War. Does anybody have any suggestions or useful strategies for a user of a shooter weapon? PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 23:28, 21 November 2015 (UTC)Periwinkle
If you don't feel like you're getting the hang of it, try watching a bunch of gameplay of people who really got it down. I recommend SkyTrax and Relados, cuz they don't talk (thank god). Before I even got the game, I was totally hooked on gameplay videos, so when I finally started playing it wasn't that hard. Uh... here's some stuff I learned that some players seem to not know:
  • When climbing a wall, mash X, you'll go faster.
  • Try to swim as much as possible. the only time you should be walking and not shooting is if you're on a grate.
  • Swim Speed and Ink Recovery are surprisingly helpful. Forget Damage Up unless you're using a Charger. (And you're good at it.)
  • Super Jumping should be used strategically - don't give your enemies a free splat. Unless it's Tower Control, hah.
  • Be crafty. Put subs and specials in pleaces enemies have to go through, hide in little puddles of Ink or on walls for surprise attacks, sneak around enemies when they're making a push, yknow. Furthermore, be a pain in the butt. I've found it's easiest to do with the Custom Splattershot Jr. (or anything else with Disruptors probly, but I like the CSJ).
--Bzeep! talk 00:29, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
I just tried Bzeep's strategy about swimming as much as possible and trying to be crafty- didn't go so well the first time. I guess I have to keep at it a little more. I think I'm having trouble with my burst bombs as well... Although I love the Inkzooka! PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 00:38, 22 November 2015 (UTC)Periwinkle
Also, my current gear- Neo Splash-o-Matic, Special Forces Beret with opening gambit, special duration up, and two quick super jumps, a White Sailor Suit with Ink Saver Main, two special duration ups, and a defense up, and Punk Cherries with bomb sniffer, run speed up, attack up, and special duration up. PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 00:50, 22 November 2015 (UTC)Periwinkle
Hmm... Burst Bombs are better for mobility than anything else imho, like with the E-liter. The Splash is pretty mobile to begin with, so I don't know if the Burst Bombs are really the best sub for it. But yeah, the Inkzooka's super fun. Speaking of which, here's a little tip: you can get a maximum of six shots from the Zooka, so if an enemy uses it, listen for how many times they fire. If it reaches six, you're in the clear after that.
As for your gear, I'd ditch Opening Gambit. The gear that has it is all really cute and it is pretty nice in the first thirty seconds, but for the rest of the battle it's completely useless. And Ink Saver Main's a good all-around ability to have, but I'd replace Bomb Sniffer with something else, too. It does come in handy sometimes, but you're better off practicing noticing bombs and stuff yourself so you can uh... be the Bomb Sniffer.
Some other abilities to consider - for main and sub where applicable - are Special Charge Up (so you can use that Zooka more... or whatever else you got), Ink Resistance Up (it's surprising how much this helps), Cold Blooded (improves stealthiness), Swim Speed Up (nyoom), and Comeback (kinda similar to Opening Gambit, but not as limited and really good in Ranked).
Hope it helps. :B --Bzeep! talk 01:03, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

Time to hit the shops, then! Thanks so much for the advice! I'd do anything to improve that Inkzooka. :) PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 01:12, 22 November 2015 (UTC)Periwinkle

Aw you're welcome! Hopefully you'll find some stuff that works for you. โœจ --Bzeep! talk 01:21, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
Here's what I came up with- I added slots to my rodeo shirt, which has quick super jump and will earn me some ink saver abilities in the future. My punk whites have special charge up, run speed up, special saver, and quick super jump, and I just ordered the Octoglasses from Spyke. That should have last-ditch effort and some special related abilities. PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 01:25, 22 November 2015 (UTC)Periwinkle
Kay, lemme know if they help you out. --Bzeep! talk 01:30, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
Also, if the Neo Splash doesn't have the best sub setup, what weapon should I take? I'm terrible with anything besides a shooter or brush, and I really enjoy the Inkzooka... PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 01:32, 22 November 2015 (UTC)Periwinkle
Hrm... well, that was just my opinion, some people can really rock the Burst Bombs. But if you're having trouble with em and can stand to give up the Inkzooka, I'd say try the regular Splash. You might find the Suction Bombs easier, and Bomb Rush is pretty dang fun sometimes. If you still want an Inkzooka though, give the Tentatek Splattershot a go. Or the Aerospray MG. Or the Forge Splattershot Pro. Whichever one you like best. --Bzeep! talk 01:40, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
I really like the Zooka... I think I'm going to give the Forge Pro a go. I feel like those point sensors could come in handy. The range is far and the fire rate is a little slower than I'm used to, but it has decent accuracy and the point sensors. Let's try a turf war and see how it goes. :) PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 01:46, 22 November 2015 (UTC)Periwinkle
Nope. That didn't go to well. Lol, time to give the MG a try. :) PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 01:52, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
Love the Aerospray MG! It's got the Zooka, and the seekers are so much fun- they'll come in handy during ranked. Also, I just got a special saver on my rodeo shirt! :D PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 02:00, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
Oh good! You feel like you're gettin the hang of things? --Bzeep! talk 02:57, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
Slowly but surely. The gear is helping. :) PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 12:33, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘ --Bzeep! talk 12:39, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
Well, my ranked battle skill is better, but still not as good as it should be. PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 15:22, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the help! PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 20:37, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
Aw you're welcome! I try. :y --Bzeep! talk 20:41, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

Splatoon Advice

Hey, I saw that you asked for advice a while ago, and that you were being splatted more than the other Inklings on your team. Well, I'm here to tell you that that means absolutely nothing! :) I've had Splatoon since literally day one, and I nearly always get the worst K/D ratio out of my whole team- but that doesn't stop me from contributing! I can't think of the last time I didn't ink the most turf in Turf Wars out of everyone in the entire match, and that had nothing to do with how many times I died.

Killing people is pretty tough in this game, and it takes a lot of practice to get pretty good at it. I like to find places where I can splat people and then slip behind cover really quickly, and my go-to weapon for Ranked is the Tentatek Splattershot. So no worries if you can't splat many people- you're probably doing more than the other people on your team anyway! And whenever I die, I like to make my death as tough for my opponent as possible. If I realize I can't win this battle, I swim away away from the main fight. The enemy will almost always chase you until they've successfully splatted you, and by doing that, you've kept them out of the actual game for a good ten seconds! Hopefully a bit of this will help you out. Feel free to ask me if you need anything else!

-ShrimpPinsig.pngSquidIcon.pngShrimpPinTalk.png 02:30, 9 December 2015 (UTC)

Thanks! I'm at a B- (91) rank right now, that's better than I've ever been! :D --PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 12:43, 9 December 2015 (UTC)

RE: Hello!

I'd love to help you out with the Naughty vs. Nice blog! What were your ideas for it? --Sigma talk 01:07, 12 December 2015 (UTC)

Well, since it's a Squidmas-themed event, probably some holiday events. I still want the Pep Rally and Team Debate, But other than that, I was thinking of maybe a little Squidmas game where everyone leaves a secret suprise or present ot quote on the talk page and you don't know what you'll get! It needs some work, but I think we can figure it out. :P --PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 01:25, 12 December 2015 (UTC)

I like that idea!

Here's how I think it should work:

Day 1 (Starting Monday): Team Choosing!
Day 2: Team Debate!
Day 3: Pep Rally!
Day 4: Start of Squidmas Game! (Everyone leaves their present/comment/quote on the talk page)
Day 5: Day Before Splatfest Advice + The Unveiling of the Present/Comment/Quote from the Squidmas Game!

These are just ideas, so feel free to pitch in if you don't like something/want to change it. --Sigma talk 01:46, 12 December 2015 (UTC)

Yeah! Although I think we can do the team choosing on Saturday and Sunday, and maybe add one more event in. I really wanted to do You Know You Love Splatfest, because the first time I used it was for the EUOC blog and that never took off. So, if we add that in, then I think it should. Look like...
Day 1 (Saturday/Sunday): Team Choosimg!
Day 2: Team Debate!
Day 3: Pep Rally!
Day 4: You Know You Love Splatfest...
Day 5; Squidmas Game!
Day 6: (day before!) Unveiling of Squidmas presents, and Advice/Preperation!
I also think we should, fully develop the Squidmas game before the blog is created. I was thinking it would work something like this...
Inkling 1: Here's my present! (Insert description of present wrapping here!)
Inkling 2: I accept your present, Inkling One!
So, then Inkling One would reveal what the present was to Inkling Two on the unveiling day. It can be a quote or something to place on the receiver's userpage or something like that. Any other opinions? --PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 02:44, 12 December 2015 (UTC)
And hey, when is that Splatfest anyway? I got the Zink Mini Splatling this morning, but no pledge box... --PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 15:04, 12 December 2015 (UTC)
I like that idea for the blog! Also, I have no idea where the Splatfest is. --Sigma talk 17:02, 12 December 2015 (UTC)
Yay! So do you want to make it? Or should I.... You should, I'm going to be fairly busy today. :P --PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 17:30, 12 December 2015 (UTC)
You can count on me. :) --Sigma talk 17:57, 12 December 2015 (UTC)
There ya go! The blog is up and ready. --Sigma talk 18:34, 12 December 2015 (UTC)


Sorry. I thought anyone could make a blog about Splatfest, if you want me to take it down I will. --Adster1005 (talk) 08:34, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

No problem at all! I'm actually fairly inactive lately because of IRL things, so I'd be happy if you and Sigma took over the job. --PeriwinklePanther32 (talk) 13:00, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
Noo don't worry about it dude! Anyone can make any blog they want (as long as it's within the wiki's guidelines, of course). --Bzeep! talk 17:11, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

I'm great! Ever since there was that long gap inbetween Splatfests a few months ago, I haven't been as active as I used to be, but I'm just glad to see that you're back. Team Fancy all the way, am I right? --Sigma talk 23:28, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, why would you want to go to a costume party? It's probably awkward, plus there could be... *shudder* furries there. Or even worse, bronies. I'm sorry you had to picture that. I'm going to stop talking about these monsters before my gag-reflex kicks in. --Sigma talk 23:59, 14 May 2016 (UTC)
