Notes on list of furniture[edit]

Hey. I've seen your edits on Stereo, and I have to give you some thanks on improving it, although admittedly a lot of work is left to be done. With regards to that, I'll give you a few pointers on how you could improve the page a lot further:

With all of that being said, I wish you luck with your stay here on Nookipedia! Lucky Clover NL Icon.pngDecomposer 03:48, February 23, 2020 (EST)

Categorizing[edit]

Hi, good luck with categorizing all images. I woke up today and went to check if any new houses are uploaded to add them to my table and there's so much categorizing going on :'D There are a few images where I don't necessarily agree with you - like, the star fragment; the images are storage icons. If I were to look for them, my first though wouldn't be to go to model renders, I'd expect, like, 3d renders there. I'd go sprites or whereever the storage icons are. But that's just me, it's important to make a start so the rest can follow. And thank you for categorizing the houses, too. :3 PaviinkaPapa Bear WW.png(Message me!) 01:11, April 29, 2020 (EDT)

As for the storage icons, they seem to be 3D renders of the items (especially if you compare them to the icons), but I completely understand why they might make more sense in sprites for ease of navigation. I'll probably make a talk page in the morning (it's midnight where I am) to gather more opinions. Anyway, thanks for the kind words! :) AlexBot2004 (talk) 01:22, April 29, 2020 (EDT)
When did you go to bed? I hope you had enough sleep! I was thinking, are you keeping track of the categories as you categorize? I had categorizing further back on my to do list, and I wanted to create some sort of map that would be more user friendly than Special:Categories or the outline we have in Community Fountain. I was thinking it would be neat to have a page with maybe collabsable outline for all the categories... 🤔 But the design can be figured out later, right, haha. PaviinkaPapa Bear WW.png(Message me!) 12:46, April 29, 2020 (EDT)
I do think having a more user friendly design is definitely a must, but for now my main focus is just getting everything categorized. If you have any ideas, feel free to implement them though! AlexBot2004 (talk) 14:07, April 29, 2020 (EDT)
The storage icons category made me very happy today 😂😂 PaviinkaPapa Bear WW.png(Message me!) 03:10, May 3, 2020 (EDT)

Staff?[edit]

Just wondering, do you have any interest in becoming part of the Nookipedia staff? You've been a great, active contributor and I think you're ready for more tools. Obviously not mandatory or anything, but I'd be happy to nominate you for the patroller position if you're interested. Either way, thanks for all your work so far! Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 12:30, May 3, 2020 (EDT)

Wow, that would be amazing! I gladly accept! Thank you so much! ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 12:36, May 3, 2020 (EDT)
I know you've seen it already, but you're now a Patroller! Congrats! We'll try and get you added as staff on Discord as soon as possible also! Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 11:38, May 10, 2020 (EDT)

PG Exterior[edit]

Hi there. I saw that you cropped the island exterior. I cropped all the Animal Crossing exteriors to the smallest possible size that wouldn't get stretched out - so they're all 366x440 as the biggest house is 440 tall and the template is set to 366. But I guess it's not that big of a stretch. Do you want me to crop the rest? PaviinkaPapa Bear WW.png(Message me!) 01:17, May 13, 2020 (EDT)

Oh, I wasn't aware there was a standard. Looking at the rest of the exteriors, I feel like they're fine how they are. I only cropped the island one because it had a lot of empty space at the top, but for now I'll revert it so it's consistent with the others and doesn't get stretched out. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 15:44, May 13, 2020 (EDT)

Admin?[edit]

Just wondering if you fancied a shot at becoming an administrator? You've done a really great job as a Patroller and I'm sure you'd be no different if you were an admin. I'd certainly be delighted to nominate you! As I've said before, it's not compulsory or anything, but I do think you should consider it! Thanks. :) Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 14:14, July 25, 2020 (EDT)

That sounds great, I gladly accept your nomination! Thank you for your support! :] ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 14:51, July 25, 2020 (EDT)
And you're now an admin; congratulations! As usual, you can ask one of us if you have questions! :) Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 13:29, August 2, 2020 (EDT)

Japanese-exclusive furniture[edit]

Hi, I'm just wondering how you got all of those Japanese-exclusive items from the OG Animal Crossing games.

I'm asking this because I would like to know what the full catalog in the Japanese games is like for a project I'm working on (specifically, the shirts). TurtleCrossing (talk) 03:08, August 18, 2020 (EDT)

For the Japanese-exclusive images, I took screenshots from the catalog in Dolphin, then cropped them. As for the full catalog, a few other editors and I have been working behind the scenes on a spreadsheet project for all the original Animal Crossing games that documents all items and more, similar to the ACNH Spreadsheet. It's not quite ready to go, but soon enough we'll use it to generate item lists and pages here on the wiki. Thank you for your interest! ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 13:31, August 18, 2020 (EDT)

Quick Question[edit]

Hey, I was just wondering how you were able to create a navigation thing on your page. I'm trying to figure this out, in case if some users want to see some things I did. AnimalCrossingFan24 (talk) 15:39, September 11, 2020 (EDT)

I have a separate page (User:AlexBot2004/Nav) that I transclude at the top of all of my user pages. It just consists of <center></center> with links inside separated by bullet points (). Hope this helps! ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 15:49, September 11, 2020 (EDT)
Hmm, sounds kinda tough but I'll figure it out eventually, appreciate answering though! AnimalCrossingFan24 (talk) 21:07, September 12, 2020 (EDT)

Update K.K. NH Character Icon.png[edit]

Yes, It’s me, The Infinite Frog, BendyGamer338. I have been begging you multiple times to duplicate the DJ K.K. NH Character Icon and tweak the image so that way it shows that it doesn't look like the one from Pocket Camp. Or, maybe you can crop the icon from a social media profile. Thanks! ~bendygamer (talk) 20:49, September 24, 2020 (EDT)

While it is odd the K.K.'s icon has shading while DJ KK's doesn't, the image should not be edited from the original, as fan-made images are not allowed on the wiki. That's how the icon looks in-game and the file was ripped directly from the game, and that is how it will stay here unless Nintendo changes it themselves. Sorry if that's a disappointment. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 21:18, September 24, 2020 (EDT)
The icon without shades is also from the game, hence the shadow. This can be seen when requesting a song to K.K. Slider. ~bendygamer (talk) 21:52, September 28, 2020 (EDT)
I've uploaded the file you're referring to, however it will not replace the existing icon; the existing one will stay in use as it is for consistency with other character icons. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 22:33, September 28, 2020 (EDT)

Initial House Pictures (New Horizons)[edit]

I checked the contribution history of the uploaders of Initial_House_Jock_NH.jpg, Initial House Normal NH.jpg, etc., and the original uploaders are the actual owners of those images. All of User:Mewprchrt's contributions have a female character with a ponytail, green almond-shaped eyes, and she does not have evidence of stealing any of her screenshots. User:Ocre actually has Agnes and Ozzie as starter villagers in their various towns, so those screenshots actually belong to them. The other uploaders are new accounts that were created solely to upload a singular image of a villager from their town, and it doesn't look like these images are anywhere else on the internet. So the source parameter doesn't need to be blanked out for them since we know they are the original owners. HylianAngel (talk) 20:15, October 15, 2020 (EDT)

Ah I see, thanks for letting me know! I've reverted all of those edits. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 09:58, October 16, 2020 (EDT)

Wild World and City Folk Villager Houses[edit]

Hey, I just wanted to ask for more info about standardizing the Wild World and City Folk furniture lists. Nearly all Wild World and City Folk houses have identical furniture items, furniture layouts, wallpaper, flooring, and music, but you've been differentiating Wild World from City Folk. (There are some screenshots of differing Wild World and City Folk houses floating about, but usually the houses are different because the villagers will eventually rearrange the furniture layout of their whole house.) Is there a reason why Wild World and City Folk shouldn't be combined, like how the Animal Crossing and Doubutsu no Mori e+ houses are combined in cases when those are identical? I feel like optimally WW and CF should be combined, featuring the City Folk furniture if possible, and then only displaying Wild World separately in cases where the houses are actually different. Also this page seems to suggest that having the Wild World and City Folk house headers combined is ideal, though of course there are some other headers conventions in that link that aren't currently being used in the actual wiki. Just want to know what the correct format is before doing more similar edits. Thank you for your time! HylianAngel (talk) 18:01, October 30, 2020 (EDT)

While many Wild World and City Folk villager houses are similar, they do differ (an example can be seen here and here).Also, even if the furniture is the same in some, different layouts are worth documenting. This, paired with the fact that Wild World and City Folk are completely separate games, unlike Animal Crossing and Doubutsu no Mori e+ (e+ is more of an expansion), is why they are separated. As for Project Villager, it unfortunately is a bit outdated, and some of the guidelines have changed over time. The decision to keep WW and CF separate, along with a couple other changes (like noting duplicate items), was agreed upon by the staff and editors in the Discord server, though it never made its way to Project Villager. I'll make sure to update the project page to reflect the current standards and guidelines. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 18:17, October 30, 2020 (EDT)
I would agree if it was just similar house layouts. But the layouts are actually identical. They start rearranging their house layouts after day 1 of being in the town. I can't find any actual images of a brand-new Wild World Bob, but you can compare with brand-new Wild World playthroughs/speedruns and see that the house layouts and furniture are identical during Day 1 for villagers, and later they start randomly rearranging the furniture. Some of the Wild World images on here are outdated and show what the house looks like after they start rearranging furniture. Unless you're 100% sure that that particular Wild World Bob is brand-new. HylianAngel (talk) 18:38, October 30, 2020 (EDT)

Rolf's WW House[edit]

Can you restore Rolf's previous WW house? The current .png doesn't have the correct furniture but the .jpg did. HylianAngel (talk) 17:17, November 23, 2020 (EST)

Done, thanks for pointing it out! ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 17:22, November 23, 2020 (EST)
Thank you! HylianAngel (talk) 17:24, November 23, 2020 (EST)

Benedict HHD[edit]

I'm not sure how accurate the information on the HHD wiki is, but this page implies that Benedict's HHD music is "My Place" instead of "I Love You." Sometimes characters have HHD music that's different from the mainline games, to fit a particular room theme. HylianAngel (talk) 20:58, November 24, 2020 (EST)

I'm not 100% sure what the song actually is, but I don't think we should source our information from other wikis (especially Fandom) if it conflicts with our existing info, since either one could be right, and we generally tend to be more accurate. Plus, the fact that the editor just changed it with no edit summary led me to believe it was inaccurate (changing minor info seemingly innocently without explanation is a common thing done by vandals here). It could very well have been "My Place", but given the lack of info from the editor, I would leave it as is for now. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 21:16, November 24, 2020 (EST)
We'd have to ask User:LoneShadowStar if he based the information from the existing song entries or if he actually learned this info from Happy Home Designer-related info since he added that info at this date. And I totally understand that it's questionable which wiki is accurate, but the person who added that music info to the Happy Home Designer Fandom wiki has made many useful quality edits to that wiki and it seems like they most likely own the game. I just want the info on this wiki to be accurate, regardless of how the information was obtained. HylianAngel (talk) 21:38, November 24, 2020 (EST)
I dug out my copy of HHD, so I'll start fixing up some of those HHD sections. HylianAngel (talk) 00:27, November 25, 2020 (EST)
Very nice, thanks! ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 01:57, November 25, 2020 (EST)
