This page is intended for Inkipedia uses and purposes only. If you aren't here to tell me something directly wiki related, then do not leave anything below. I'm not interested in whatever it is that's not wiki related. This could include literally anything that's not on the wiki, such as personal information of any type, questions about non-wiki topics, or my external pursuits.

Please do not post any Barnsquids or userboxes here. I am not interested.

This page will next be archived at 50 sections. If possible, try to communicate to me through Discord instead.


On a recent edit to File:--user-Mipha--.jpeg, you wrote "booi" which can be considered rude, and definitely qualifies as minor vandalism. I have removed this, but please, try not to let it happen again. If you have an explanation, please, write it below. Flame(Talk) 14:01, 15 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Trig didn't add that, the uploader did. 14:08, 15 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
alright, if you say so. Unfortunately the page was deleted before I could triple check but I believe you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by FLAME1232 (talkcontribs)

Your code

I implemented your "stop the purple links" code correctly, but now red links start as green until I click them. Do you have a solution? Bobby(talk) 13:02, 7 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hrm. Try deleting a:active from the list. Trig - 14:39, 7 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Congratulations on your RfR passing! You've been given patroller rights. I'm sure you're already aware but you now have access to the patrolling tools for reviewing the quality of others' edits, and the rollback tool for reverting vandalism. Use of these tools is optional. Feel free to fill in your details at Template:Patrollerlist, which shows up on the staff page and patroller page.

File deleting

I have a bunch of user files and I want to delete them, but I don't know how to do so. How do I delete them or mark them for someone else to delete? Thanks, Inktoling (talk)

Add the following to files you no longer want: {{Delete|User image no longer wanted}}. An administrator will take over from there. Trig - 22:54, 16 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

My user pages (too many)

Hi. You know how you went on to my page and let me know that I have too many user pages?? I have deleted them so, I am ok? As in "ok" I mean like do i need to delete anything else? Thank you. Splat girl (talk) 11:54, 22 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Quick Question have I put too many user pics? One another thing, I think I may have put too many user pics, so, can I make them say this for my new that I posting today: {{Inkipedia: _______}? even I only using them. Thank you again. Splat girl (talk) 12:00, 22 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Users are permitted five (5) user pages and seven (7) user images. Files like File:Callie1.png and File:S3 Shiver Render.png that are used on User:Splat.girl/Sandbox 5/OC are not considered user images because they are used in other official places on the wiki (such as Callie or Splatoon 3/Gallery). Files like File:Splat.girl's OC Bobble.jpg and File:Splat.girl's OC Squid.jpg are considered user images because you are the only person using them, and they would not appropriately fit into main articles. It appears at present, you still have ten (10) user images. My suggestion if you still want all your characters on a page is to use an image editing software and put the individual characters together—having multiple characters within the same file, instead of individual uploads. Moving pages to the Inkipedia: namespace is not considered appropriate, as Inkipedia: namespace is reserved for official site policies or sponsored events (such as Inkfests). Hope that clarifies it! Trig - 14:10, 22 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
How would I put pics in the same file? Splat girl (talk) 18:38, 23 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You would need to use an external image editing service. Another free possibility is Google Drawings, where you can add multiple images in, resize them as needed, and then export the whole "page" as one PNG file. Trig - 18:46, 23 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Could you do it? It just… seems really hard. Splat girl (talk) 20:00, 1 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A lot of questions

Hi Trig Jegman, my account is Acid from Discord... and I KNOW that i'm not supposed to ask on here because you said you didn't care, and I KNOW that you probably will delete this because why should you not... and I KNOW you said to contact you on Discord, but I can't because the only way I can talk to you is for me to friend you... and why should you accept a friend request from me when you believe i'm under the age, and oh my gosh this looks like a quick easy ban from the Inkipedia as a whole but i'm really annoyed right now so i'm just gonna spill a real big mess because why not.

I am not twelve.

I am not twelve years old and I don't know what I can do to tell you that I am not. I have a birth certificate, I have anything, literally anything... that states i'm not twelve, because I did a little aging, and I gonna turn a little fourteen soon. So unless you divide that by 2, I am not under aged.

Unless, if your issue is that I am 13, please state so, because from what i've heard, you have to be at least 13 years old. The COPPA law, states that you have to be 13, Discord, states that you have to be 13, and oh my god I am sweating right now I honestly dont know what ever source you went on told you I was twelve because I aint. Did I mention I was sweating?

Idk what else I need to give you for you to believe me, because truthfully, i'm a little sweaty and a little 14 year old... the thing you went off of is outdated, if it's my email, which I don't know why it would, my email is also outdated, because I've never bothered to update it. So now, i'm going to sit here, and wait for a response (please do), and in conclusion, i'm not twelve.

Also the math questions were for fun; I know how to do Circle Area when the circumference is 18 and PI is 3.14, and I'm pretty sure if I were to ask 12 me that same math question i'd throw a fit because at 12 years old I did not do shapes.

Also, I think the Discord should have an appeal page, there's literally no one to talk to... and if there is, i'm very willing to use this as my appeal.

Sincerely, Hated 22:06, 30 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Isn't pulling assets from Splatnet 3 also violating the policy?

Based on your recent comment on my talk page, you mentioned that I added an image to this page that has not been officially given by Nintendo, and violated the INK:LEAK policy. Although this is true in some ways, there were other cases similar to this, but weren't taken down or even had the user warned. Nintendo has never publicly released assets like this one through any social media post or website. Which means that users had to find an alternative way to retrieve them, which happened to be using reverse-engineering to allow a browser version of Splatnet 3 to run, and pulling assets from there. Doesn't that technically violate this policy? If it doesn't, then I'm assuming what I did wasn't really breaking any rules. Please reply to this and tell me what you think. I'm a bit confused right now. -N1ntendo- (talk) 21:11, 22 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey -N1ntendo-, this is a topic I've been discussing with the rest of staff lately so I hope you don't mind me filling in for Trig here. This is a matter of datamines regarding already-revealed content versus datamines regarding upcoming content; our leaks policy currently states that uploading datamined upcoming content (eg. assets for July's events) is not allowed unless a source is attributed to it, which would typically be a Tweet made by a reputable dataminer or such. Direct uploads of upcoming unrevealed assets by editors that they datamined themselves is not allowed.
In your case, you uploaded the Tricolor icon asset that is both unrevealed on social media and currently inaccessible in-game. Once it becomes accessible in-game, you would be free to re-upload the file.
That specific Team Power icon asset had been revealed and subsequently made accessible to users via the Splatnet 3 app on the day the Splatfest Sneak Peek began; the Sneak Peek began at 28 April 08:00 UTC, and that file was uploaded at 28 April 17:48 UTC, so it would not count as an instance of leaking upcoming content. Additionally, we do not take issue with datamining as a whole, it's a matter of whether or not the associated content as been officially revealed or not. Yoshifan52 (talk) 21:53, 22 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It probably needs better clarified in policy, but yes, the above. We know that its something companies would do as has happened with the Cease and Desist issued to Pikipedia for a similar circumstance. Better be safe than sorry—we can wait a week to add it back. Trig - 23:43, 22 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

About my Sandbox pages

So, every since the wiki-notification about the limitation policy on user content deadline started popping up again recently, I was wondering and would like a reminder; Will my Sandbox pages be safe from being deleted upon the deadline's arrival? Because if they get planned on being deleted, I plan on copying (plus modifying/proofing) their contents onto a Google Doc in preparation to add it to the Fanon wiki in the future. I'm just asking for some closure on what's gonna happen this September. Sincerely, P.J. GT(talk) 22:38, 22 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Inkipedia users are permitted up to five user subpages. per the policy. Pages that do count for user content are your fanfictions/characters/personal accomplishments; Anything that is meant for YOU and not to later be integrated onto Inkipedia's main spaces. Pages such as drafts, feature testing, or development of new features do not count for this limit. The sooner you can make appropriate changes, the better as it reduces the work I and the rest of staff will need to take when September hits. Thanks for reaching out. Trig - 23:40, 22 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
So are you saying I should move my Sandboxes' content needs to be moved? (Sorry if you take this as me being dumb). I also plan on re-merging and minimalizing some of my personal stats page back and request its deletion once done P.J. GT(talk) 23:54, 22 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

SRL Twitter?

Should we also do an archive of SRL's Twitter posts like we did with the ones from the Tumbler days, too? P.J. GT(talk) 14:41, 3 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

That is effectively what we are already doing, as the goal is to save SRL+other resources. That said, there may be some things where we capture the SRL from tumblr, but not the identical message posted to twitter; I am more concerned about archiving everything we already actively *have* and *use* before trying to add *more* from something like SRL twitter. That could be an end goal project, but lets focus on minimizing this list first. Trig - 15:09, 3 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, I think I might want to be a patroller.

Hi Trig Jegman. I'm not sure if you know, but you're an inspiration for the whole site. You do a lot of amazing things when it comes to keeping the site well and organized. I think that I may want to become a patroller, like you did. I'm not gonna apply now, because I have a long way togo before I'm anything like you. So imma work hard and try to make the site better before I apply. Stay Fresh! NewSquidbeakSplatoon (talk) 13:01, 30 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Trig - 03:52, 13 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Also I was wondering how to make your name tag special. Some people have different fonts, colors, and even images! I wanna know how. NewSquidbeakSplatoon (talk) 13:16, 30 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi there! Please have a read of our Signatures Policy which contains a set of instructions for creating a custom signature. You might want inspiration from others' signatures which will likely be in their own /sig subpage. For Trig, their color is because they are a wiki admin and affiliate rather than having a custom signature. Good luck and reach out again on a talkpage or Discord if you need more assistance :) Slate Talk Contribs 16:07, 30 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


[[Template:Unrelated]] was recently deleted however I believe that this is a mistake

I created this page to put on files such as the File:User Random Squid Girl the invader.jpg and Inkipedia:Barnsquids

in your deletion you explained that it was the same as Template:Real however these are not irl

Please Reconsider the deletion

For files, the written file description and file typing categories (being registered as meta types) should be more than sufficient to understand that they are not directly related to Splatoon proper, as well as generally just broad observation. If deemed necessary, expand on the file description. Trig Jegman - 01:36, 29 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
aright, going to write a more detailed description
The "Unrelated" template is used to indicate that a given topic or subject is not associated with Splatoon. This template serves as a visual cue for readers and editors, highlighting the absence of a connection between the content discussed and the specified placeholder.
(thank chatgpt) (\*\) (talk) 01:41, 29 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Is a template like that really necessary though? One of your examples is a user image used on the user's page and nowhere else, and the other is an "Inkipedia:" page, not a regular mainspace article. Neither of those would require some sort of notice. I think it's already clear enough they're not directly related to the series. FancyRat 01:52, 29 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
And as was described before, for files it can be explicitly stated within the file description that it is a user image (if the meta type of "user image" and the category description was not distinct enough). These are things that could be very easily derived with a written description. The use of notice templates should, generally speaking, be kept as minimal as possible as they are intended to be temporary or as non-intrusive as possible.

Till Depth Do Us Part File

I'm pretty sure that it's corrupt. Whenever I download and open it, my media player crashes. Whenever I try to right click it in file explorer, file explorer crashes. Could you re-upload it? Cuttlfish59 (talk) 16:59, 15 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I have no clue what file you're talking about. I presume [[:File:Till Depth Do Us Part.oga]]? I have no issues playing it through Inkipedia or through audio programs (Ocenaudio; VLC). Apple devices in particular do not work well with oga so I would suggest converting it if that is the platform you are using. Trig - 17:18, 15 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Weird. I have a Windows 11. I converted it to an mp3, and it still doesn't work. Maybe it's just a problem with my computer. I'll see if I can find the reason. Cuttlfish59 (talk) 17:51, 16 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey, about the notification board

So like, remember this? Well, it's been 17 days, and I feel like our current notification board has fulfilled its purpose, and we can replace it with mine, the one about how Splatoon is spontaneously combusting soon and we need strategy pages, ASAP. I assume we need a page to link it to, so we can make it right now. Here's the link. Stay Fresh, and have a ridiculously awesome day! NewSquidbeakSplatoon (talk) 16:09, 17 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I highly suggest keeping things like these drafts until they have at least the bare minimum of information. Additionally, the game is Splatoon and not Splatoon 1, so I took the liberty of moving your page. Anemoia [Talk!] 16:18, 17 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The page is ready

Hi Trig! How have you been? At this point, I know you're aware, we have exactly 34 before Splatoon's online service gets destroyed. I've worked on the page, and I have completed it. it is ready to be pasted on the notification board, and I am asking if you will. But before you would, could you please proof read it? I want to make sure it is good and helpful for the wiki before it gets posted out for others to see. You can look over it here. If there is anything you dislike, or think should be edited, feel free to edit it, and let me know what you changed. Please and thank you in advance. Please try to get this out ASAP, because Splatoon is on borrowed time.

Your passion and dedication is more than welcome but I have to make some notes. Instead of doing a Main Page article, projects like these are supposed to go to userspace (which's has been made at this point of writing). Furthermore, instead of consulting one user only, it would be better to inform the whole community (best case through our Discord or Ink-Pump). Trig for example is an editor less to not focussed on in-game content, which makes them not the best to consult about projects like these. And while with good intent it would be more than appreciated/advised that you remove Trig from the example on who to @. It is true that they are staff and ready to help others but making them the example of staff to turn to can lead to the confusion of others, that Trig is the first to contact on the matter, which is like mentioned above not the case.   Perfectionist   (talk) 09:25, 6 March 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Aw, thanks! It means a lot to me! I really love this website. About your notes, I understand if it should be user space, I wasn't sure because I've never worked with this before. So thanks for letting me know! And I know its not best to consult one member, I just wasn't sure who, so Trig and Ox popped up in my head aside from you, because you three are always active and helping! (^◡^) I also don't have access to Discord, my bad. I wasn't really sure what Trig specialized in. but know I know! Also I will remove Trig from the @, thanks for letting me know! Thanks for all the feedback from Perfectionist! I'll take this into work if I do something like this later, and I probably will put it out on the Ink Pump after going through your revisions, so once again, thanks for reading it over.

my IP address is wrong im from Italy not the uk :(

hiya my IP address is incorrect im from Italy i have no clue what happened i think someone hacked into my laptop and changed its IP address im worried :( please help me Rūba (talk) 17:11, 20 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

That's...not how IP addresses work, and not something I can control. Don't know what to tell you. IP addresses do change over time, so it might be random luck? Trig - 17:17, 20 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The staff had sufficient reason to believe that user was abusing multiple accounts per the the Inkipedia:Policy/Multiple accounts, due to shared behavior, linguistics, and a few other reasons when compared to other users. Trig - 17:55, 20 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
there has also been a hacker recently trying to use our IP adress to get us banned from the inkipedia and ik my boyfriend has done nothing wrong recently Rūba (talk) 17:58, 20 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
and making multiple acc's under our IP adress as we usually travel alot Rūba (talk) 18:00, 20 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Your reasoning makes no sense, as you can still edit on the same account even while traveling. Either way, making multiple accounts unless absolutely necessary is prohibited, so that's no excuse. OrderSquid38 [Talk] 20:03, 20 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
but im telling the truth theres a hacker using our IP address and changing into a Different country Rūba (talk) 20:31, 20 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Like Trig said, that's not how ip addresses work. OrderSquid38 [Talk] 22:22, 20 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
IP address locations are not precise. For a while mine said I lived 3 entire US states away from where I am. This is normal and nothing to worry about. IP addresses are distributed by your ISP and will change if you connect to a different network.
Someone else making more accounts under your IP is impossible unless either your home network or your computer itself have been compromised, in which case you have much bigger problems than Inkipedia accounts. Sourguppyworm (talk) 22:49, 20 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
