Consider what to do with this article[edit]

As of now, this page serves to address Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp crafting, which while something that we should still cover here, has proven to be a bit of a nuisance since there have been moments where me and others have accidentally linked to this page whenever the topic covers Animal Crossing: New Horizons. As of now, there are several things to fix this.

  1. Turn this page into a gameplay mechanic covering how both Pocket Camp and New Horizons crafting works, similar to customization. This would prevent any issues when trying to link to their respective crafting pages. We could also merge DIY to this page too, but I believe that deserve a different discussion.
  2. Turn to a disambiguation page and move Pocket Camp crafting to a new page.
  3. Move DIY to crafting and move Pocket Camp crafting to a new page.
  4. Do nothing

I'd like to know what you all would want to do with this page. -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 15:47, December 1, 2021 (EST)

Of the options you've provided, I'm more inclined to choose #1. I also had the thought that "Crafting" could be a redirect to "DIY" and that the content on this page could be moved to "Crafting (Pocket Camp)" (which I now see is similar to option #3). Not really a fan of option #2, although it does have precedent (see:customization). Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 13:12, December 14, 2021 (EST)
I say keep it as is. "Crafting" is the term used in Pocket Camp and "DIY" in New Horizons. While you could call DIY crafting, I don't think that name is ever used in New Horizons, at least not as the "official" name. It's like how people commonly call the Island Designer Construction Permit "terraforming" when it's never called that at all. (Although that's not even really what terraforming means.) While I prefer it as is, I'd be fine with option 1 too though. Chubby Bub (talk) 23:54, February 15, 2022 (EST)
"DIY" and "Crafting" are often used interchangeably in New Horizons. See here. (if only the damn thing could let me embed an image) -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 00:10, February 16, 2022 (EST)
I am inclined to agree with option 1, as well do what Sunmarsh suggested above. The Messenger(talk) 18:25, February 16, 2022 (EST)

Currency[edit]

Should the Crafting and DIY pages be categorized as currencies? I know it may sound dumb, but considering that it cost materials and sometimes furniture to obtain something. It seemed like both pages should have the category link. 2600:1700:C1B0:2450:E8AF:A2EE:D4EC:8FD5 02:34, October 18, 2022 (EDT)
