Talk:Bugs

From Nookipedia, the Animal Crossing wiki

Name standardization[edit]

I'm sure everyone is tired of me bringing up things like this... but the wiki is pretty inconsistent with how it refers to bugs/insects. We have the page "Bug" and then the lists of bugs are on Bugs/... (note the plural). "Bugs" redirects to "Bug". And then we have Category:Insect instead of Category:Bug (or Bugs). I vote we stick to one or the other. So we either need to change the category name, or the article name to match the other. Thoughts on this? Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 15:23, July 3, 2016 (EDT)

Funny, I thought it all looked wrong too! I vote to move the article. "Bug" just doesn't sound right. Red (talk) Red Snapper WW Sprite.png 14:16, July 6, 2016 (EDT)
There's still the issue of Category:Insect. Should we rename the category to Bugs? Or change the article name to "Insects"? Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 14:26, July 6, 2016 (EDT)
Hmmm, a tough one. I'd go with renaming the category. Red (talk) Red Snapper WW Sprite.png 12:31, July 7, 2016 (EDT)

Why so many removed?[edit]

In Wild World, why did so many bugs and fish get removed. Removed bugs include the Drone Beetle, Pine Cricket, Purple Butterfly, Mountain Beetle, Common Dragonfly, Crab, Coconut Crab, Hermit Crab, and Spotted Ladybug. Why did they all get removed in Wild World? They should've stayed in my opinion, it would be kinda cool to have crabs in City Folk. Why did they get removed in Wild World? Thanks!--24.150.217.182 08:16, July 1, 2017 (EDT)

This is unconstructive discussion (not related to improving the article). I'd suggest joining the Discord server to talk about this. Drago (talk) DragoPicACNL.png 11:28, July 1, 2017 (EDT)

Spawn Rates[edit]

Thanks to the information provided here: https://wuffs.org/acnh/insects120.html, we can include the actual spawn rates of all the Bugs (or "Net Catchables") in New Horizons. But I don't want to just add that info in to either this page or the individual pages (as I'm sure someone would hate however I did it and simply remove the information rather than clean it up). Any advice/help?JarieSuicune (talk) 19:27, May 9, 2020 (EDT)

My apologies for the slow response. I agree that these spawn rates help give a sense of the relative rarity of each bug, but without seeing the entire table it's hard to understand what is meant by an individual value, especially when some of these values exceed 100, implying they are not a % spawn chance. Perhaps we could develop a qualitative scale (very rare, rare, uncommon... etc.) and the spawn rate is given in addition to this qualitative descriptor, for example: Spawn rate: 5 (very rare). I'd be interested to hear other opinions on this though. Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 22:40, May 18, 2020 (EDT)
I think it might actually be %, because the only exceeding 100 are the crafting materials and the petals were everywhere and are more of a special case. I agree with including the worded rarity as well because that's how the game tells us the numbers. It would make sense to put it in the already existing rarity field in the infobox and critter info template and the game's table.

"Further Information" name change proposal[edit]

Closing discussion in favor of replacing "Further information" to "Real-world information". Most of the bug, fish, sea creature, fossil, and art pages has text replaced. vmario97 (talk) 23:56, September 11, 2020 (EDT)
The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page.

For the bugs and sea creature, could the heading "Further Information" be changed to something like "In The Real World" or something along those lines? I was might make it easier for readers to tell what those sections are saying. Bones aF Villager Icon.png TDCbox.png TDCtalk.png 10:09, September 7, 2020 (EDT)

I would agree on a change. Further Information makes it sound like the sections contain further details about the critters' appearances in AC! Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 11:44, September 7, 2020 (EDT)
Drago, can you go let the rest of the staff know about this discussion to get their opinions? Bones aF Villager Icon.png TDCbox.png TDCtalk.png 13:25, September 7, 2020 (EDT)
Sure, and I'll add it to the active discussions category as well (forgot until now). :) Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 13:32, September 7, 2020 (EDT)
Something like "Real-world information" might work. I agree it should be changed, the current title doesn't make any sense when you think about it. --Shark HHD Icon.png Dorsal Axe (talk) 13:53, September 7, 2020 (EDT)
Support Support per above. vmario97 (talk) 14:01, September 7, 2020 (EDT)
How many users need to support this until we can start changing it? Bones aF Villager Icon.png TDCbox.png TDCtalk.png 15:48, September 7, 2020 (EDT)
Support Support the change to "Real-world information" ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 16:04, September 7, 2020 (EDT)
Support Support the change to "Real-world information". There's no set number of users that need to provide consensus, Thedarkcave. I would reach out to SuperHamster as he's the leader of Project Museum and if he's cool with it then I would say go ahead. Without his input I would wait a day or two and then if there is no objection here then the change can be made. This is a change that would affect quite a few pages which is why it's good to get multiple opinions/wait a little bit. Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 21:22, September 7, 2020 (EDT)
Support Support change to "Real-world information" per above, much clearer on what the section is about. ~SuperHamster Talk 18:01, September 8, 2020 (EDT)
Support Support I've never really thought about how ambiguous that section name actually is. We should apply this change to fish, fossils, and paintings as well. BladeofEvilsBane (talk) 19:25, September 9, 2020 (EDT)
