The animal crossing twitter that is run by Isabelle is a great source for information on small details and pictures it can be found on twitter and at the bottom of the official animal crossing site

Enjoy ^-^

Guys, we need to edit our pages more. We haven't edited our pages in about a month come on, step up your game guys! Btbrid01 10:45, 6 Juney 2013 (EDT)


Starting Tomorrow, New Leaf will be released for USA. So, tomorrow everyone start making new NL articles! Pokebub 00:23, 9 June 2013 (EDT)

Needed Art Pages

We need pages for the two new paintings from Animal Crossing: New Leaf They are Wild Painting and Good Painting also are we going to make a sculptures category to host the new art group?

FINALLY... I added a chart on how to tell the fakes in Animal Crossing: New Leaf Here if you guys want to make the headers of it yellow like the other charts go right ahead!


Grekox 11:59, 18 June 2013 (EDT)

I can create those pages later tonight when I get the chance, unless someone gets to them before me - a sculpture category sounds good, too.
And nice work! I can format that later, too. Thanks for the heads up, ~SuperHamster Talk 13:13, 18 June 2013 (EDT)

IGN&Thonky Guide

I'm not a big fan of IGN and I never saw this Thonky site before but they both have pretty good guides with info needed on pages like Badges IGN Wikis - AC:NL Guide Thonky - AC:NL Guide - unsigned comment from Grekox (talkcontribs)

Personality "more" template

Since the same blurb appears on every villager page, I figured why not make it a template? Here you can see it in action. Good idea? Bad idea? — imjon (talk) 14:43, 7 July 2013 (EDT)

I always felt something needed to be done about it, and am glad something is finally in use. Super (duh...)AlpacaDoggie Mask.gif 16:03, 7 July 2013 (EDT)

Public Works Project Category

Me and SuperHamster we're talking about how people are gonna be more likely to look for a public works project like illuminated heart under a public works category then locations so now if we could put any things that are public works projects under the category that would be great! Grekox 12:40, 13 July 2013 (EDT)

Edit: Also if you could use this new template that adds a price and size section to the building infobox! Grekox 13:11, 13 July 2013 (EDT)

FlashMP3 extension

Not sure of a better place to bring this up, but could the FlashMP3 extension be installed? Someone's already used it on some of the song pages, and the mp3 files are sitting waiting to be enjoyed. — imjon (talk) 14:49, 18 July 2013 (EDT)

We did have some sort of mp3 extension at some point, but it has since been broken as far as I know, which is why we've started migrating to embedding Youtube music videos instead...if this extension will work, though, that'd be great! Want to let Jake know and see what he can do? He does all the fancy-shmancy server things. ~SuperHamster Talk 14:54, 18 July 2013 (EDT)


I think this Wiki is great. It is terrific ! It could be even better if it could be made multilingual like Wikipedia is. I'm proposing we start with adding French version of Nookipedia with links between corresponding articles - just like in Wikipedia. --Ocre 01:51, 28 August 2013 (EDT)

It's a great idea - I don't think it would be feasible, though. I'm not 100% sure, but I believe the subject has been brought up in the past. One of the biggest problems would be the lack of editors. We'd need a pretty large team of devoted French speakers to translate articles. More importantly, we'd also need active French-speaking staff members to help monitor a French wiki. English Nookipedia is currently doing great in terms of activity, but even we are quite a bit away from completely covering New Leaf. Beyond that, in periods of low activity, activity is pretty dang low - and would be even more so on alternative language wikis. That's my two-cents, though. It would be interesting to see what would happen if we started a French or Spanish wiki. ~SuperHamster Talk 14:02, 28 August 2013 (EDT)
I'm not against it either. I would be more lenient on doing a Spanish Nookipedia since I know the Spanish names for several articles. I am somewhat experienced with the Spanish language. Let me know what you guys think. --Wookiee123 15:56, 28 August 2013 (EDT)
I'm from Montréal, Québec. French is my first language. I have about 10 000 visits on my site per months right now. It sure isn't what Nookipedia is receiving, but some of that traffic could be funelled into a Nookipédia (in French). I was looking at having an encyclopedia of some sort as such are lacking right now in French. I think both sites could feed into one another...--Ocre (talk) 18:27, 28 August 2013 (EDT)
I'm not against this idea either, and like Wookie123, I have some experience with Spanish. Before we create any additional wikis though, we need to ensure that there will be users to support it. Another site I run, Wikisimpsons, has several subwikis in other languages and none of them are particularly active. If we are to create Spanish or French versions of Nookipedia, we will need the support of a decent number of users (5-10 ideally) who are comfortable with that language and willing to dedicate time to start the project. It will also require some work from our English contributors to set up the interlanguage links between articles. If you can come up with the user support for either a Spanish or French Nookipedia, I'd happily set aside some time to get the site up and running. --Jake 21:04, 28 August 2013 (EDT)
I get that you want to be sure of a base number of users for each Wiki before putting work behind an interlingual wiki but finding users beforehand might be hard enough. "Build it and they will come" as goes the expression. But I totally understand you and I posted a blog post about recruiting future users of a French Nookipédia here : --Ocre (talk) 00:36, August 29, 2013 (EDT)
Out of concern for the number of contributors on these wikis, I would be able to contribute without being able to speak these languages completely or fluently. For example, I can create Lists of villagers for each game on each wiki and fill in infoboxes for several of the character articles. I would not be able to put the main content in most of the articles, however. You guys can count me in as a contributor on each wiki. --Wookiee123 (talk) 01:14, August 29, 2013 (EDT)
One of my reader just posted a comment saying she would be interested in participating at the construction of a Nookipédia FR.--Ocre (talk) 23:35, August 31, 2013 (EDT)

I can help! Crazy Redd (talk)

Hey Jake, no rush at all or anything, but what's the current status of the French/Spanish wikis? --Wookiee123 (talk) 20:39, September 3, 2013 (EDT)
I'm not even sure it's happening at all... --Ocre (talk) 19:39, September 24, 2013 (EDT)
Huh, me neither. Activity is quite slow here. Mario Sigpic.png MarioTalk to-a me! 21:17, September 26, 2013 (EDT)
Too bad then :( I had 3 regulars that were interested. Especially when you consider that all the work concerning finding and writing the French names of the characters (that are in New Leaf) is mostly done. Moreover I do not think these opportunities present itself that often.--Ocre (talk) 10:39, October 2, 2013 (EDT)
You can always write some articles in French and put them in a usersubpage so when progress does occur, you already have some pages to jumpstart it. Mario Sigpic.png MarioTalk to-a me! 14:24, October 4, 2013 (EDT)
Good idea. But if I do spend time working on it, I don't want it to be in vain... So if it's under work, then yes I will start right away but not before we have confirmation :) --Ocre (talk) 18:22, October 4, 2013 (EDT) That would be awesome! Can I help with the Italian version of the wiki?--Marcus (talk) 10:13, October 1, 2014 (EDT)

Hey! im french and i talk french and spanish! i could help! SuperCofee ᴛᴀʟᴋ ᴛᴏ ᴍᴇ ᴘʟᴇᴀsᴇ (talk) 13:34, May 9, 2015 (EDT)


would someone PLEASE fixe the online userrs page??????!!?!?!!!!!!? Crazy Redd (talk) 17:13, September 3, 2013 (EDT)

Calm down - no need for all the excitement. What's wrong with the page, exactly? Appears to be working fine for me. ~SuperHamster Talk 18:18, September 3, 2013 (EDT)

Music pages

By the time of this writing, all the pages pertaining to in-game music use an embedded Youtube link. I think it's a better idea if we upload OGG files instead. Not only does it lower loading time of the page, it also looks cleaner since you can put these files in the music infobox. That requires some work, obviously, but anyone can obtain OGG files by putting the music in Audacity (a free, open source music editor) and then exporting it as OGG. I wonder who else thinks that using OGG files instead of embedded Youtube videos is a good idea. Mario Sigpic.png MarioPlus, the .mp3 format is broken here, which only reinforces my point. Can I have some mushrooms now? 19:41, September 19, 2013 (EDT)

Here, I uploaded OGG files and replaced the embedded videos in 1 A.M., Agent K.K., Bubblegum K.K., Aloha K.K., and some others. How does it look? Mario Sigpic.png MarioTalk to-a me! 21:01, September 19, 2013 (EDT)

Template:JapanEvent and Template:KoreaEvent

If any of you are reading this... First off hello. Two, I created two new templates for use with events that are version exclusive to Japan or Korea so if you create articles one of them could you please place this at the top of the page. Thanks, Grekox (talk) 13:15, October 24, 2013 (EDT)

I've read this, and I'm wondering if we do this already to events that are exclusive to the USA and Europe. If not, we have to create templates related to these for consistency. Mario Sigpic.png MarioTalk to-a me! 14:37, October 24, 2013 (EDT)
