Separate article for New Horizons?[edit]

Clear consensus to have a separate page for New Horizons. However, there's still no consensus for the naming, so I have started a new section for that below. Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 13:44, February 9, 2021 (EST)

Should we consider giving the New Horizons version an article of its own? There's quite a few differences between Nook's Cranny in New Horizons and 'older' Nook's Cranny, and easily enough content to warrant its own article. Also, the upgraded NC in New Horizons is completely different in appearance, both outside and inside. Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 13:48, September 25, 2020 (EDT)

Neutral Neutral I think the page is fine right now, but I agree that if all the necessary content was included there that each game's iteration of Nook's Cranny might need its own page. I think it'd be nice to keep a short description on this page and link to the primary page using {{Main}} though. Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 12:34, September 29, 2020 (EDT)
Support Support Agreed that the page is reaching is limits, and taking it to its full potential for each game would definitely require separate pages. I like Sunmarsh's idea: Keep this central Nook's Cranny article that gives a brief overview per-game, and splits into separate per-game articles linked to via {{Main}}. ~SuperHamster Talk 23:46, October 1, 2020 (EDT)
Support Support per above. I think a split like Nook's Cranny (Tom Nook) and Nook's Cranny (Nooklings) would be sufficient enough though, rather than by each game. --Shark HHD Icon.png Dorsal Axe (talk) 04:05, November 29, 2020 (EST)
Support Support, although would think of using Nook's Cranny to refer to the current style while Nook's Cranny (Tom Nook) to refer to the shop prior to NH. Lucky Clover NL Icon.pngDecomposer 07:42, January 13, 2021 (EST)
Support Support splitting off only the New Horizons section into its own page. As for the names, I think they could either be Nook's Cranny (Tom Nook) and Nook's Cranny (Nooklings), or Nook's Cranny and Nook's Cranny (New Horizons). ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 09:46, January 13, 2021 (EST)
Commenting on article name suggestion. It is likely that users will be coming to the wiki page for current information on Nook's Cranny, hence I suggested Nook's Cranny to refer to the current NH shop run by the Nooklings, with another article referring to the pre-NL shop run by Tom Nook. Nevertheless, after 4 months and 4 Support votes, it seems that we ought to split this article soon. Lucky Clover NL Icon.pngDecomposer 23:47, January 13, 2021 (EST)
Support Support If all the necessary content was included, separate articles for the Nook's Cranny run by Tom Nook and the Nook's Cranny run by Timmy and Tommy would make a lot of sense. I am leaning toward Sunmarsh's suggestion: Keep this article but make it more of a brief overview of both iterations, with links to their respective articles provided via {{Main}}. BladeofEvilsBane (talk) 00:35, January 14, 2021 (EST)
Support Support per above. vmario97 (talk) 16:02, January 25, 2021 (EST)

Naming[edit]

After glossing over the results of this discussion, option 1 has received the most consensus among the other options. As per sunmarsh, this current page will be a redirect to serve Nook's Cranny (Nooklings) for search term purposes. Page split will be done momentarily. -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 22:07, September 6, 2021 (EDT)

So we've clearly agreed to create a separate page for New Horizons Nook's Cranny, but what should it be called, and which page should be the 'main' Nook's Cranny article? These are my four preferred options:

I'm leaning towards option 2 as I think most readers will come here for New Horizons info, but what are your thoughts? Post below! Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 13:44, February 9, 2021 (EST)

I think Option 1 or 3 are good; I'm not sure which of the two I'm leaning toward yet. I'm not a fan of Option 2 since it acts as if the Tom Nook store is not the original, and I don't think the NH store would beat the Tom Nook one as the primary topic for the term "Nook's Cranny", since the original appeared in more games and serves as the inspiration for the new one; plus, there will come a time when a new game comes out, and if the NH Nook's Cranny isn't in that game, then it wouldn't make sense to have the main article focus on that. If we want to give both stores equal weight, then Option 1 would be best, and if we want to give Tom Nook's store more weight since it's the original, then Option 3 would be best. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 14:21, February 9, 2021 (EST)
Leaning towards 2. Note that we moved Carmen (rabbit) to Carmen before (see Talk:Carmen) because people who talk about Carmen would usually refer to the rabbit villager. Similarly, talking about "Nook's Cranny" these days would usually refer to the store owned by the Nooklings and not the one owned by Tom Nook in a game released more than a decade ago.

Addendum: Note that this will lead to a weird situation where the upgrade to Nook's Cranny (Tom Nook) would be called Nook 'n' Go, that is, without a (Tom Nook) modifier, unless on the off chance that such will be the same name for the upgrade for the current Nook's Cranny, such that that page will be moved to Nook 'n' Go (Tom Nook).

Per Decomposer and Drago on 2. -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 19:21, February 11, 2021 (EST)

I don't mean to be contrarian, but I think that similar to our item pages, each iteration of the shop should get it's own page (e.g. "Nook's Cranny (Animal Crossing)" "Nook's Cranny (Wild World)" etc.). On that shop page we could create a custom infobox to display information about each shop (how many of each type of item it sells, how to upgrade it, who works there, and its hours). On each shop page we could also include detailed information/lists about the items it sells, their price and their group (A, B, C). We could also include seasonal information explaining how and when certain items appear. As for what remains on this page, I think the Fish page might be a good example page. Maybe we can create a table that shows different types of items for sale (Carpet, Wallpaper, Clothing, Furniture, Stationery) along the Y-axis (left side) and the games running sequentially across the top, so readers can see how the types and numbers of items sold at the shop changed across games.

Might have to disagree with this, as the various iterations of this shop, save New Horizons's, aren't just distinct enough to have their separate page. Instead of separate infoboxes, maybe templates such as used in Calm Painting to show information in the different titles would suffice. Lucky Clover NL Icon.pngDecomposer 03:25, March 14, 2021 (EDT)

My vote would be Option 1. I'm in agreement with AlexBot2004 that it doesn't make sense to have the NH version be the "main" article since it's only in one game. An even split is the only solution that makes sense to me, and as a bonus would be totally future-proof. --Shark HHD Icon.png Dorsal Axe (talk) 17:12, April 22, 2021 (EDT)

I agree with 1. RosieCat (talk) 18:51, June 8, 2021 (EDT)

I think 3 is best. Alfonso the Alligator (talk) 13:55, July 25, 2021 (EDT)

I think Option 1 is good. Kalina (talk)Large Snowflake NH Inv Icon.png 13:20, August 29, 2021 (CET)

I like options 1 and 3, with a slight preference towards option 3. I do not like option 2, per the reasons outlined by AlexBot2004. --Jake (talk) 20:42, August 29, 2021 (EDT)

I didn't realize that there is another article called Tom Nook's store, and that this is the article for the first iteration of that store, and so please ignore my previous comment. I vote for option 2. Our policy has been to follow the naming conventions of the latest mainline Animal Crossing game when determining proper article titles, and so this should be no exception. If "Nook's Cranny (Nooklings)" or "Nook's Cranny (New Horizons)" is chosen, I think that that "Nook's Cranny" should be a redirect to the NH page as readers will most likely be looking for New Horizons information when using that search term.
