New layout feedback[edit]

Hi all! After more than five years with the previous layout, the Nookipedia team is excited to announce our new site skin! This current layout is themed around Pocket Camp, but in the coming months we're looking forward to cycling through different variations of the layout depending on the season, the holidays, etc.

We'll be spending the new few days tweaking it and wrapping up any loose ends. If you notice any bugs, glitches, or improvements that can be made to the skin, please let us know below.

If you ever want to visit the old layout, logged in users can do so in their preferences (Appearance -> Nookipedia).

Thanks! -- Nookipedia Staff, 02:32, November 22, 2017 (EST)

Template revamp[edit]

To match the new design of the wiki, I've come up with a new look for various templates (mostly the notice templates). I've tried to make them more clear and consistent in terms of purpose and language, and the accompanying pictures now feature animals that are IMO a little more relevant to what the notice is about. I've also merged some templates into one, such as the various region-exclusive event templates, which can be configured to the desired one with switches.

They could probably do with a bit more tweaking, so any thoughts and feedback would be welcome. PS: Ignore the navbox for now, that one's a WIP. --Dorsal Axe (talk) 07:28, January 26, 2018 (EST)

I don't have any suggestions yet, just wanted to say at first glance, these look great! :D ~SuperHamster Talk 10:41, January 26, 2018 (EST)
Agreed, these look fantastic! Just wanted to add that if you want to make these changes yourself, just ask and we'll lower the protection levels on some of the templates so you can edit them. :) Drago (talk) DragoPicACNL.png 10:49, January 26, 2018 (EST)
Thank you for the kind words. I've made it into a base template and converted them all to use it, so we can quickly and easily create new notices as needed. It will also enable us to easily make global changes. --Dorsal Axe (talk) 06:06, January 28, 2018 (EST)

How to add sheet music and accompanying sound?[edit]

Hello Nookipedia, I have a question concerning adding musical notation. I thought that it might be a good idea to add sheetmusic files with accompanying sound, sort of like the folks over at Pikipedia have for the music in that game. (Example in the link: So, my question is, how could I add something like that to Nookipedia for the music in these games? Is it possible? J.w.zen (talk) 15:15, July 1, 2018 (EDT) J.w.zen

Interesting idea! Do you know if there's official sheet music available out there? If not, were you thinking of transcribing yourself or finding existing transcripts? If its transcribed by third-parties, I'm not sure that would fall under our scope, but I'd like to see what others think. Maybe we could add links to existing transcripts in the "External links" section of song articles. ~SuperHamster Talk 21:22, July 1, 2018 (EDT)
I suppose it could be done by uploading .png files of the sheet music for the motifs. There are a lot of different things that could be done! J.w.zen (talk)J.w.zen

What happened to Bulletin Board forums?

--Weast Weasel (talk) 17:53, August 26, 2018 (EDT)

Welcome back! The forums were largely inactive for the last several years, so we finally shut it down. We've since migrated to our own Discord server, which is much more active and has a nice little community going. Learn more and join at Nookipedia:Discord if you're interested! ~SuperHamster Talk 00:55, August 27, 2018 (EDT)
