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.
Animal Crossing Wiki
On July 12, 2010, Animal Crossing Wiki was setup. It was originally run by 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, 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 19th, 2010.
Animal Crossing City
Founded in August 2005, Animal Crossing City was created on Wikia. Shortly after its fifth year anniversary, Wikia make 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. This update was completed in time for new year and launched to the public on 1/1/11.
