Inkable Stage Area Editing

It's been driving me nuts that we're a month past the launch of splatoon 2 and the Total BP section of every map is still empty. I created this account to help out and make those calculations and edits myself but I can't figure out how to code that. I checked the code of some splatoon 1 maps to try to figure it out, but the Total BP section doesn't seem to appear in the code for that. How do I make these edits? Please note that I know next to nothing about programming. (JessikaSho (talk) 05:10, 28 August 2017 (UTC))[reply]

Calculations Have Been Made

Hi there Slate, I went ahead and made the area calculations for the splatoon 2 maps with a large portion of the data being from youtube playthroughs as well as a few of my own matches. A couple things to note. The average map size is a decent amount larger at the launch of Splatoon 2 than it was at the launch of the first game. Only one map is under 2000p. Moray Towers and Port Mackerel are much larger than they were in the first game, each growing by over 400 inkable turf. Also at the time the Manta Maria was released, Sturgeon Shipyard seems to have grown by about 37p. Youtube let's plays from before Aug 26 have the Shipyard map hovering around 2355p whereas current playthroughs and my personal matches chart it at 2392p. I'm guessing this is because Manta Maria's area is nearly the same as the original area of Sturgeon Shipyard. I'd assume the change they made was making the drawbridges count for turf regardless of whether they are up or down. Finally, because Shifty Station is supposed to change each splatfest, I'm holding off on that one till after the Flight vs Invisibility splatfest so we have at least 2 instances of that map. Here's a link to the excel document on google drive. If you download it, you can see my formulas. And now, here's my list.

Rank 1: Inkblot Art Academy: 2463p

Rank 2: Port Mackerel: 2457p

Rank 3: Sturgeon Shipyard: 2392p

Rank 4: Manta Maria: 2357p

Rank 5: The Reef: 2328p

Rank 6: Humpback Pump Track: 2248p

Rank 7: Moray Towers: 2225p

Rank 8: Starfish Mainstage: 2134p

Rank 9: Musselforge Fitness: 1965p

Accidentally Uploaded The Wrong File

Hi, I just recently started editing, and I was trying to upload a file. It seems as though I clicked the wrong image and I can't figure out how to delete the file. (CheetoCheeto (talk) 03:11, 17 January 2018 (UTC))[reply]

How do I become an administrator

Hi Slate, I am tired of other users repeatedly changing or removing my contributions, even when they are true. I want to become an administrator. How do I do it? User:JoshieM818JoshieM818 (talk) 14:52, 25 August 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Joshie, you can apply to become an administrator at Inkipedia:Requests for Rights. However I must warn you that Inkipedia, along with other wikis, are free to edit by the community. Edits made to it are not "owned" by the editor -- you can request others do not own your userpage but articles are fair game to improve upon. Therefore if others feel that your addition is not necessary or improving the article, then it can be reverted. For example, your recent change to the Squash Headband simply said you yourself did not know what "squash" is. This isn't improving the wiki. Administrators have a responsibility of being impartial in resolving editors' points of views and maintaining a high standard for the wiki. Slate Talk Contribs 21:32, 25 August 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Speaking of this, I filed a request to be an admin here. ~~Carrietta "Carrie" White~~ (talk to me here) 23:11, 22 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Splatoon 3

A lot of people have ideas for Splatoon 3 and we need a talk page for people to discuss their ideas and other people can come on and read the theories. Plus, I am pretty sure some people from Nintendo are on the wiki and it could be a kind of “hint-hint” to them. 🦑Zombietoon🦑 14:27, 15 February 2020 (UTC)

I need some support to become a patroller so if ya want you can support or oppose me here


Just wondering, how do I make my user page a bubble just like yours? I think it would be an ok touch. SplatFan09 (SplatTalk) 16:42, 30 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

What do you mean by making it a bubble? Slate Talk Contribs 09:01, 31 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
There's some sort of border around all the text on your page. Splatfan09 (SplatTalk) 16:45, 31 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Oh, im sorry but I put talk page instead of user page Splatfan09 (SplatTalk) 16:46, 31 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Oh! You can style tables with CSS, have a look at the source, where the table is defined with style="background-color:#DCDCDC; border:thick #EE8844 outset; text-align:center; font-size:14pt; color:#EE8844; border-radius:1em;" and some inline-CSS tutorials :) Slate Talk Contribs 14:49, 1 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks a lot! Sorry for the late response. Splatfan09 (SplatTalk) 00:06, 6 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Slate, I'm bureaucrat from Spanish Splatoon Wiki in FANDOM, can I talk with Staff for some questions in a social media or in a private session in Discord? Thanks! A22ProGamer (talk) 10:03, 11 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Sure, please join us on the wiki's Discord (direct) or @splatoonwiki on Twitter. Slate Talk Contribs 15:15, 11 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Regarding your Comment on Logo Proposal 14

Greetings, Slate. I would have used the reply function on the original comment, though it's currently giving me an error message. The graffiti in the logos are recreations based on various Splatoon 3 promotional materials. None of them are vector files from Nintendo, as they don't release them to the public. At most they release the occasional raster file on websites and such. In short, all of the vector images were created by me, not Nintendo. If I'm misunderstanding the comment feel free to correct me. Mr. Hinoshin (talk) 16:57, 9 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I'll respond on the comments page so it's more open Slate Talk Contribs 13:13, 10 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

About a user

Apologies if this is something that's already been mentioned, especially if this is the wrong place for it/out of line for me to say, I'm new to the wiki and to wiki editing in general. I'm not calling for them to be banned or anything drastic like that, but the user Spring Sparkle Princess has been repeatedly making edits on the Shiver and Frye pages re-adding statements that have already been reverted several times. It's hard to say whether or not this is necessarily being done in bad faith, but just putting their own edits back up over and over without engaging in any conversation about it (ESPECIALLY on Shiver's page, what with it being protected and a note recently being added to the page source to avoid editing the "Gender" section without first discussing the change on the Talk page) feels like it's bordering on disruptive, at least to me. Once again, really sorry if this is not the place for this, I'm not trying to go out of my way to cause trouble for the sake of it, I just figured it was worth bringing up to someone. And if there's anything I could be doing that would be helpful elsewhere on the wiki, please let me know, I'd just like to help this place be as good as it can be if I'm able. Thank you. :> (Also sorry if I created this topic incorrectly, I just clicked the "Add topic" button at the top, is that right? Again, new to wiki editing) - SocialFrog (talk) 07:22, 20 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Noted, thank you for calling it out. You're doing good! We discuss a lot on the Discord server especially around Shiver. For things to do, please have a browse of Inkipedia:Maintenance or User:Slate/Splatoon 3 direct for S3 content specific pages that probably need updating.

Sorry for bothering you more about signatures, but my signature just is replaced as {{SUBST:nosubst|User:Octohachi/Sig}} (talk) 21:56, 22 August 2022 (UTC). I can’t figure put how to change it so that the SUBST stays out. (Even when I delete it in preferences it just comes back)     Octohachi S3 Weapon Special Triple Inkstrike.pngS2 Salmon Run boss Griller.pngS2 Icon Golden Egg.png [reply]

Make sure the "custom signature" or "Treat signature as wikitext (without an automatic link)" box is checked Slate Talk Contribs 22:19, 22 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks so much! When it said it in INK:SIG it just said custom signature box so I was confused. Now I think it looks good.    Octohachi S2 Weapon Sub Curling Bomb.pngS2 Mem Cake Steel Eel.pngS2 Icon Golden Egg.png 23:09, 22 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Main page Twitter

The twitter section on the main page only goes partway down, at least for me. I’m assuming only bereaucrats (and maybe admins) can edit that.     Octohachi S3 Weapon Special Triple Inkstrike.pngS2 Salmon Run boss Griller.pngS2 Icon Golden Egg.png 15:13, 26 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
