==History==
 
==History==
Nookipedia was originally two separate wikis. Animal Crossing City, which was a Wikia hosted wiki, decided to merge with the independent Animal Crossing Wiki. On November 19, 2010, it joined the [[Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance]]. On December 31, 2010, Animal Crossing Wiki was renamed to Nookipedia. Since then Nookipedia has been growing and expanding preparing for the next Animal Crossing game.

===Animal Crossing Wiki (2010)===

On July 12, 2010, Animal Crossing Wiki was set up. It was originally run by [[User:Leem01|Leem01]], a moderator on the (now defunct) animalcrossingforums.net. Although the wiki received an affiliation with NIWA and obtained a few edits, a database problem caused the wiki to shut down without any backups created.

Nookipedia owes its history to [[Animal Crossing City]], originally hosted on Fandom (named Wikia at the time). Founded in August 2005, Animal Crossing City was created on Fandom by user [https://animalcrossing.fandom.com/wiki/User:Aeryka Aeryka]. Shortly after its fifth anniversary, Fandom opted for a mandatory implementation of a new skin, 'Oasis'. The change was controversial and caused many wikis to move off the site, including Animal Crossing City.  
On July 12, 2010, Animal Crossing Wiki was setup. It was originally run by [[User:Leem01|a user]] on the (now defunct) animalcrossingforums.net. It affiliated with NIWA and received quite a few edits before a database problem without any backup caused it to close. It then re-opened on October 23rd 2010, separate from the original site. Later that year, it merged with the ex-Wikia Animal Crossing City. Animal Crossing Wiki joined NIWA shortly after on November 19, 2010.

Around the same time, Animal Crossing Wiki was relaunched under [[User:Jake|Jake]] on October 23, 2010 and separate from the original wiki created from July 2010. Their intention was to gradually obtain an membership in the {{Comm|Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance}}. By November, staff members from Animal Crossing City, who had previously tried ShoutWiki for their move away from Fandom, opted to ask Jake to help merge their wiki databases from Animal Crossing City with that of Animal Crossing Wiki. Later that year, the merger with Animal Crossing City completed, and on November 19, 2010, Animal Crossing Wiki joined NIWA.
Founded in August 2005, Animal Crossing City was created on Wikia. Shortly after its fifth anniversary, Wikia made a new skin, 'Oasis', mandatory. Many wikis left Wikia, including Animal Crossing City. Originally going to move to ShoutWiki, which did happen for a short while, Animal Crossing City later decided to merge with Animal Crossing Wiki to form the wiki we have today.
 
  
===Nookipedia Name Change===
 
 
At the end of 2010, the staff agreed on a name change to Nookipedia (from Animal Crossing Wiki), to give the wiki a distinct and memorable name, as well as a new site skin. This update was completed in time for new year and launched to the public on January 1, 2011.

History

Animal Crossing Wiki (2010)

On July 12, 2010, Animal Crossing Wiki was set up. It was originally run by Leem01, a moderator on the (now defunct) animalcrossingforums.net. Although the wiki received an affiliation with NIWA and obtained a few edits, a database problem caused the wiki to shut down without any backups created.

Nookipedia (2010–present)

Nookipedia owes its history to Animal Crossing City, originally hosted on Fandom (named Wikia at the time). Founded in August 2005, Animal Crossing City was created on Fandom by user Aeryka. Shortly after its fifth anniversary, Fandom opted for a mandatory implementation of a new skin, 'Oasis'. The change was controversial and caused many wikis to move off the site, including Animal Crossing City.

Around the same time, Animal Crossing Wiki was relaunched under Jake on October 23, 2010 and separate from the original wiki created from July 2010. Their intention was to gradually obtain an membership in the Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance. By November, staff members from Animal Crossing City, who had previously tried ShoutWiki for their move away from Fandom, opted to ask Jake to help merge their wiki databases from Animal Crossing City with that of Animal Crossing Wiki. Later that year, the merger with Animal Crossing City completed, and on November 19, 2010, Animal Crossing Wiki joined NIWA.

At the end of 2010, the staff agreed on a name change to Nookipedia (from Animal Crossing Wiki), to give the wiki a distinct and memorable name, as well as a new site skin. This update was completed in time for new year and launched to the public on January 1, 2011.

The wiki has since overseen the rise in popularity of the Animal Crossing series from the likes of Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the latter of which resulted in Nookipedia taking on a prominent role in the ACNH Spreadsheet Community. In mid-2020, the wiki initiated the implementation of the MediaWiki extension Cargo, allowing for databases of various aspects of the Animal Crossing series, such as items and villagers. On October 7, 2020, Nookipedia created ACNH.Directory, an open-source directory of fan sites, communities, and resources for Animal Crossing: New Horizons.[1]
