Inkipedia Newsline

So I had heard about an old scrapped idea Inkipedia Newsline. I thought man me and the guys can bring this back. Is it significant for a page? We will need a lot of help amd support from the admin. --PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 21:17, 7 January 2021 (UTC)

I don't think you need an admin to get it running. I do think stories about Splatoon might be better somewhere else like amino, twitter, facebook, discord or other Splatoon communities. The wiki is mainly for documenting. You can maybe ask other editors if they'd like to contribute to your idea. Shahar (talk) 01:00, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

Gender neutral

On a lot of pages regarding agents and players, there is pronouns used such as she or he. There is no canon genders or species for the player. I was looking at the gear pages and it said "the inkling wears them," when it was S2 gear. Can someone please remind users of this--PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 12:32, 9 January 2021 (UTC)

There's manual of style policy editors need to follow regarding Pronouns and Point of view. If this bothers you, reconstruct the sentence to use a plural subject and use they. Shahar (talk) 17:42, 9 January 2021 (UTC)

Poll adding

I know you probraly dont wanna be dealing with this right now, but i have no idea, (When it is my turn), how to add polls to the main page. Could you give me the code so i could figure out how to? Squid400 (talk) 17:39, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

Go to Main Page/Poll and you can add the poll there, but, at this moment it is protected to administrator only. Hope this helps! Flame(Talk) 21:39, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
when is it my turn? turn for what? adding poll to the main page? we are doing poll proposals and at the beginning of the month, the poll is swapped by the person in-charge (Judd). That role is rotated between the committee. All the details are in the poll selection page. The Main Page/Poll can be edited by auto-confirmed users and above. Shahar (talk) 23:03, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
Sorry to bring this up again, but the Judd thing just disappeared idk when, plus Squid400 next in line while I'm fourth on the list. How should we settle this and where should we mark that down? Yawshi Fan (talk) 12:23, 22 March 2021 (UTC)
I saw Judd thing didn't really work out when Prinz wasn't really aware of it, they re-added themself to the committee and I wasn't going to argue about that. It had too much dependency on a single person to be aware of when and what to do. It has been changed to any active member of the committee can do the tasks when it is time for a poll swap. It is specified in the moderation section of Inkipedia:Poll selection. Shahar (talk) 12:31, 22 March 2021 (UTC)
Ok thanks for clarifying. "An available member" confuses me for some reason :P Mind if I change it to "ANY available member"? Yawshi Fan (talk) 13:35, 22 March 2021 (UTC)
Yeah sure, go ahead! :) Shahar (talk) 13:02, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

A project I'm planning on doing.

After the Mario Splatfest, I'm planning on working on Octo Canyon and Octo Expansion pages that are marked as stubs. Mainly levels and Sectors. On the down side, I won't make walkthrough videos for them because I don't have the time and money for capture-cards, so I'll leave the videos to you Shahar if you plan on them. Just a heads-up! ;) P.J. GT (talk) 00:23, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

Is that a hint? *wink* *wink* ;) Anyone can submit gameplay, I might do that the future if I find the time and effort to do so, But do not count or expect anything. Good luck in the project you're planning on doing and working on Octo Canyon and Octo Expansion. It definitely needs a lot of work and care. Shahar (talk) 14:36, 13 January 2021 (UTC)

How long do requests stay active?

How long do requests stay active before it is archived? I think we need to address this in the RfR page. Some requests, like your's, were active for over a month before you were promoted. Also, SQUIDKID2000's RfR was not archived for two months after it was clear he would not be promoted. I think we need to have a limit on how long a RfR can be active before the request is closed. Eminence Chatter 20:03, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

Typically, we leave them up for a month or so, so everyone can vote or write their opinion. I do think we should address this in the RfR page so there won't be any confusion in the future. Shahar (talk) 20:17, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

Looking at the vandalism

I made this thanks to an article on wikipedia. It is a WIP. User:Prinz the overlord/A close look at vandalism--PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 21:25, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

Thanks but I think we cover all that in the 7 NO's of Inkipedia in Inkipedia:Policy. Shahar (talk) 15:10, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
I am gonna go further and explain why is vandalism so prominent and why do people target others. --PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 15:15, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
Then I suggest bringing it up in Ink Pump to hear the opinion of others about it. I just think it repeats what is already been written in the policies. Shahar (talk) 15:28, 6 February 2021 (UTC)

Patroller

If I ever become paroller do I have to put a flag? I'm not living in germany but it is my home country. Also you know the way theres this user is male/Female userboxes, i made a non binary one. Is that ok--PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 15:20, 6 February 2021 (UTC)

If you ever become a patroller, you don't have to put a flag, it's optional. But it would be nice to see everyone unified with flags. About the userboxes, I think people mistake gender and sexuality so in my honest opinion, male/female are alright. If you want, you can create custom userboxes and put them directly into your user page. Shahar (talk) 15:28, 6 February 2021 (UTC)

League

Hey Shahar! Did I see you at league yesterday? Sorry if I'm interrupting you but I just wanted to say I saw you! ChessMaster [TALK] 15:33, 6 February 2021 (UTC)

Yeah we played together on the same team in League yesterday and we won. I booyah'd at the start to show that I recognized the names. Great match. Their Nautilus was scary. Shahar (talk) 15:39, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
Hey guys wanna do league --PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 15:56, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
Sorry Prinz but I can't I'll ask you later to do some turf wars as I can't now. Also Shahar before that match I had been with that Nautilus. I think we won but he was just as scary as that match. If not more!ChessMaster [TALK] 16:12, 6 February 2021 (UTC)

Octoling_girl1234, octoling_boy1234, and Hello234

The new users Octoling_girl1234, Octoling_boy1234, and Hello234 all seem similar enough to possibly be bots or multiple accounts by the same user. Could you check on this please? It just seems suspicious. Flame(Talk) 15:16, 10 February 2021 (UTC)

Yeah, this is really suspicious. Eminence Chatter 15:34, 10 February 2021 (UTC)
Bureaucrats can do IP lookup, it does look suspicious so I'll let one of them know. Shahar (talk) 15:46, 10 February 2021 (UTC)
I know you probraly dont wanta be bothered, but there is a Mr. Squid acount that was just created, and that is VERY similar to User:Mr Squid. It may or may not be a vandal, but thought you should look into it. --Squid400Name.pngTalk2.png 16:55, 10 February 2021 (UTC)
We need to assume goodwill until they do something bad. Not everybody who has a name similar to another user is a spammer. Eminence Chatter 17:49, 10 February 2021 (UTC)
Agree with Eminence. We should assume good faith. There is no evidence of abusing multiple accounts. Having the same IP does not equal abuse, as they haven't done anything harmful on the wiki. For all we know, they may have just wanted a different username or to make an account for a family member. Heddy (talk) 05:10, 11 February 2021 (UTC)
Prinz the pooperlord was my younger bro. We have the same IP address.PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 07:28, 11 February 2021 (UTC)
Inkipedia has a very high standard to maintain, and spammy accounts do not reflect this standard. I unblocked the first user out of the three in case they decide to give contribution to our wiki. Shahar (talk) 17:48, 11 February 2021 (UTC)

Looks like Hello234 is back with the acount name agnets4,8,3, By the looks of it they probably what to rollplay.Fancy squid<:= (talk) 21:25, 17 February 2021 (UTC)

Redirects.

I have been moving some pages, but i was wondering, how do I not leave a redirect, as i think it is a hassle for you to remove. --Squid400Name.pngTalk2.png 16:51, 11 February 2021 (UTC)

When you move, uncheck the box of "Leave redirect behind" that is below Reason. That way it will move without leaving a redirect. Shahar (talk) 17:26, 11 February 2021 (UTC)
Ok, thank you!! Squid400Name.pngTalk2.png 17:40, 11 February 2021 (UTC)
No problem. Just make sure when you upload the image that its name is accurate and descriptive. For example: S2 Weapon Splat Roller promotional artwork. :) Shahar (talk) 17:48, 11 February 2021 (UTC)

Todays direct

Should S3 be a page. Im so HAPPY!--PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 22:52, 17 February 2021 (UTC)

Of course there is a page for the new entry of the series. :) Shahar (talk) 08:38, 18 February 2021 (UTC)

YOU GOTTA SEE THIS!!!!

Today's Nintendo Direct just announced SPLATOON 3 for 2022! I AM SOO PUMPED!!!! IT LOOKS SICK N' FRESH!! P.J. GT (talk) 22:53, 17 February 2021 (UTC)

Baby salmon boi--PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 22:59, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
I know, It's very exciting. We've got a lot to analyze and add to the wiki. Shahar (talk) 08:38, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
I cant wait for the supposed Inkzooka and CUSTOMISATION! Ive even made a new OC. Jonathon, hes similar to an idol but is more rock god. His name's a pun on Thon, aka Tuna and the given name Jonathan.--PrinzTheKazooOverlord Prinz.pngWIKI!!! 13:22, 18 February 2021 (UTC)

Deleting Files

Hi Shahar, there are several files I need you to delete. Can you please do this? Thanks! Eminence Chatter 19:27, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

(not Shahar, apologies!) If you tag them with {{delete|<reason>}} an admin will delete them, as long as there's reason to do so! Luke26 (talk) 19:36, 19 February 2021 (UTC)
I have tagged them, just I'm alerting Shahar because it's a bit urgent. Eminence Chatter 19:40, 19 February 2021 (UTC)
I see Luke has already taken care of it. Thank you Luke! I don't think it's urgent to delete unused images if they are not breaking any policy. Someone will get to them eventually. Shahar (talk) 15:23, 20 February 2021 (UTC)

Category:Support

If possible, can you unban this page from being created? I'm trying to make categories for each of the weapon roles, but I cannot create "Category:Support". Thanks! dedf1sh07 (talk) 02:52, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

@dedf1sh07: Done. You can create the page now. Heddy (talk) 03:47, 24 February 2021 (UTC)
Thank you @heddy. Shahar (talk) 19:37, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

Userboxes

I was wondering why some of my userboxes have big spaces underneath them? I can't seem to fix it.YOLO2020 (talk) 14:34, 16 March 2021 (UTC)

Try to maybe look how other editors did it? I put them all in a table format so they are bunched together on the same line. There are other editors who put more userboxes than me so check how they did it and see how they arranged them. Shahar (talk) 19:37, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

Weapons Navbox, Infoboxes for Sub and Special Weapons in Strategy pages

Recently, I have been adding Strategy pages for individual Sub and Special weapons. Is it possible to edit the Weapons Navbox that appears on the bottom of these pages to provide navigation links to each of the Sub and Special weapon Strategy pages?

Also, while I have been using the Weapon Strategy Infobox in the Sub and Special weapons' Strategy pages, I realized that they will likely need a different type of Infobox, particularly utility Subs and non-damaging Specials, such as Ink Armor. These infoboxes have to be different from those used in the regular Sub and Special weapons' pages since Strengths and Weaknesses will be presented. DaDoc540 (talk) 18:00, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

I've added the sub & special to the navbox. About the infobox, let me know which parameters you'd like to be added. The parameters are optional so you can have infobox without Strengths and Weaknesses. Shahar (talk) 19:37, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

Main Power Up effects in Weapon pages.

I have been wondering, could we add the effects of MPU to that weapon page’s infobox? A perfect example would be the Splattershot Pro with its damage increase and how much AP needed to reach it. This could be easier than looking up said Ability. Just giving an idea! : ) P.J. GT (talk) 18:15, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

Hi P.J. GT, There was a in discussion in [discord] about it. You could bring it up in Ink_Pump to see what others think about it. From my point of view, I think if we put a certain ability in the infobox that it might imply that it has more value than other abilities even if it has a unique effect on a certain weapon. I think sub power up and special power up are also abilities that could be pointed out in the data section and not the infobox. Shahar (talk) 19:37, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

Issue with a file.

Ever since the two changes to the S2 character relationship chart image, the image itself isn't being shown on it's page in desktop view. Can you fix it? P.J. GT (talk) 18:14, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

It shows up on my end. (Tried both Desktop and Mobile view on Vector and Timeless skins). Have you tried to update your browser's cache? For me it shows the error thumbnail for the old revision. Shahar (talk) 18:47, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

I don’t get the meaning of “Vector & Timeless Skins” and how do you find them along with updating my browser’s cashe? I mainly use Google Chrome as my browser. Can you help? P.J. GT (talk) 19:59, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

Hey, i know i'm butting in, but on chrome, vector and timeless skins are in preferences for viewing, and i believe updating the cache is either updating your computer or going to the More button at the top of the page, and pressing Clear Cache. Squid400 (talk) 20:03, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

Nothing else is working for me. Can a new version be uploaded to resolve this issue? P.J. GT (talk) 20:43, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

I still don't know what "updating browser cache" is. Also, why don't I have the "Undo edit" option in mobile view while its only available in desktop view? Also I mainly use a Samsung Tablet for browsing, not my parent's computer due to an "incident" back in 2019. 😓 P.J. GT (talk) 20:55, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

There are instructions here on how to update browser's cache. I'll ask the other staff if they have a different solution. Shahar (talk) 21:35, 23 March 2021 (UTC)
Prod is going to try and fix it now. Shahar (talk) 23:40, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

Pages

How do you create a brand-new page?--YOLO2020 (talk) 14:52, 25 March 2021 (UTC)

Search the name of the page you want to create and click on the red link. Hope it helps! Eminence Chatter 14:54, 25 March 2021 (UTC)
You can also enter the URL of the page you want to create. Shahar (talk) 18:04, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

Turf War

Sorry about that, I didn't realize that Turf War had been confirmed... Eminence Chatter 19:12, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

It's all good, it happens. I accidentally didn't check the reference link in Murch's line about them working for Spyke. Shahar (talk) 21:56, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

Question?

Can you have more than one InfoboxGobbler (The merging of multiple Infoboxes)? Because I don't want my Game stats Infoboxes merged with my Game Avatar Infobox(s). Can you help? Thanks. P.J. GT (talk) 20:51, 1 April 2021 (UTC)

You might wanna ask GuyPerfect as they are the one who created the template. Currently InfoboxGobbler merges all infoboxes and takes them to the top of the page. If I had to guess, it is set to be only one. Shahar (talk) 18:04, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

Files

How do you crop an image?--YOLO2020S2 icon Agent 3.png 17:41, 4 April 2021 (UTC)

There's a ton of editing software or online websites you can do this with. Just googling "crop image online" or "crop image [mac/windows/whatever you use]" should give you plenty of results :)  ♥ #6-Frisk   S Ability Bomb Sniffer.pngS2 Weapon Special Booyah Bomb.png  18:02, 4 April 2021 (UTC)
So I used a site, but when I upload it to Inkipedia, It squishes the entire image, not cropping it.--YOLO2020S2 icon Agent 3.png 18:28, 4 April 2021 (UTC)
If you mean this file, it looks fine to me?  ♥ #6-Frisk   S Ability Bomb Sniffer.pngS2 Weapon Special Booyah Bomb.png  18:42, 4 April 2021 (UTC)
As Frisk was kind enough to say, there are many tools that can crop images, I suggest Photoshop or Paint.net. Just look up online on how to in the said tools. Shahar (talk) 18:04, 7 April 2021 (UTC)
Thanks, I fixed the image :)--YOLO2020S2 icon Agent 3.png 19:48, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

New page idea. Can I go through with it?

So recently, I had the idea of making a new community page for discussing theories and lore. I know we have a discord for that, but I feel like that the page will stop false info from getting on to other pages, as well as being a place for people who dont have discord to discuss this kinda stuff. I made a discussion about it on the ink pump, so please go check that out. I even made one of those template box things for it (you know, like the future one). I just wanted to get the OK from an admin before I made the page. Go check out the discussion on the ink pump, under "New community page idea", please! Thank you! WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 11:03, 21 April 2021 (UTC)

We have rumors and leaks page and its talk page, I'm personally against spreading rumors that are not confirmed or don't have a base. You could open a page in the blog namespace starting with Blog:PAGENAME for bigger discussions. I suggest keeping it to the minimum as to not draw work from the actual wiki. (For more, see INK:TALK and INK:RUMOR) Shahar (talk) 14:46, 21 April 2021 (UTC)

Got it. Thanks for the feedback! I'll refrain from creating the page. WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 14:54, 21 April 2021 (UTC)

As you probably know, Timewip2020 suggested making a page specifically for lore, as to organize all of the loose lore bits in trivia facts and other pages. I know that we have the Sunken Scroll page, but that still doesn't discuss all of the lore. I think it's a good idea, but since this page is likely going to be a key part of this wiki, and frequently edited and visited, I wanted to get the OK on that, too. Sorry to bug you so much, by the way. WoomyMcBoomyWoomy.png 15:05, 21 April 2021 (UTC)

Admins don't have a better say in wiki matters than other users. Personally, I'd like to see a sketch first of how the lore page would look like if Timewip2020 has a direction of where it's going. They could make a page in userspace USERNAME/SANDBOX. That kind of page would need to have a lot of references and sources so there won't be any misinformation in there.

Octo Canyon walkthrough vids.

A few days ago I saw you made a page for Octo Canyon walkthroughs that you did. I was wondering, are you gonna put them on their respective pages soon? Just asking! : ) P.J. GT (talk) 16:49, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

I'd love to. I recently saw that the format of some videos in the Octo Valley missions is not consistent so I thought to discuss first on where it should be placed. I should probably ask in Ink Pump since I've got no response on Discord. I'd appreciate any help with putting them on their respective pages. Shahar (talk) 17:24, 10 May 2021 (UTC)
