Deletion of Taxi[edit]

As per consensus of Talk:Taxi, I've moved the text of Taxi to Transportation.

However, I do not know how to delete the original page. Nor do I think I want to, haha..

Could I ask you to look into this?? - Speedy ( Talk - Contributions - Log ) 10:37, June 17, 2023 (EDT)

I redirected the original page to Transportation. Thanks for taking care of this! Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 10:43, June 17, 2023 (EDT)
No problem! Thank YOU for redirecting! :) - Speedy ( Talk - Contributions - Log ) 10:45, June 17, 2023 (EDT)

Can you correct my error?[edit]

I started userboxes for countries that we have uploaded flag images of (such as Belgium, Denmark and Chile) but I accidentally named the Denmark userbox “Chinese”. Is it possible to change the name? Super Mario World Yoshi art.pngSuper Mario World 23:30, July 20, 2023 (EDT)

Nevermind, PanchamBro fixed it Super Mario World Yoshi art.pngSuper Mario World 23:42, July 20, 2023 (EDT)

can you change my name[edit]

Hi can you change my name two froggypotter?? - unsigned comment from Charmander123 (talkcontribs)

I'm very sorry, but I can't unfortunately. It requires a bureaucrat (like most things here :P) to change usernames. Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 10:30, July 26, 2023 (EDT)
Here is the timeline:
  • December 6, 2021: Your first account was named "Nook Gamer 333."
  • January 8, 2022: On Kalina70 and Vivian's talk pages, you requested your account to be renamed to "ToadFan700." Neither party was able to rename you as the renaming tool is reserved to directors and bureaucrats, but Drago noticed the situation, renamed you to "ToadFan700," and notified you that he renamed your account.
  • October 22, 2022: You created a new account called "Animal crossing Fan."
  • December 7, 2022: As "Animal crossing Fan," and on AlexBot2004's talk page, you requested your account to be renamed to "Eevee." AlexBot2004 renamed your account and notified you.
  • April 7, 2023: On AlexBot2004's talk page, you requested that your account name, "Eevee," to be renamed to "April." He renamed you to "April." This was unusually a 4-month period, but he made an allowance, as he had not mentioned the 6-month wait period for the first name change, and notified you of the name change + 6-month wait period for new name changes. Not long later that day, you notified me on my talk page (via an anonymous IP address) that you had lost access to your password to your account named April and asked for advice. But before I had the chance to reply, you created a new account named "Spring."
  • April 8, 2023: Due to the unique circumstances, I asked you on your Spring talk page if you wanted your username at the time, "Spring," to be renamed back to "April," or if you wanted to continue using "Spring" instead. You agreed that you wanted your previous name back, so I renamed you back to "April." At this time, I gave you advice to link your account to your email, so as not to lose access to another Nookipedia account again.
  • April 13, 2023: You lost access to April, notified AlexBot2004 of all of your previous account names, and you created the account named "Charmander123."
  • July 25, 2023: You asked to be renamed to "froggypotter."
Especially since the 6-month wait period has not been reached, there is no way you can be renamed at this point in time. HylianAngel (talk) 18:02, July 27, 2023 (EDT)
Now it passed. But I am not a bureaucrat so I can't rename you. You can ask HylianAnglel though. ACL.png Acnh Player (talk) ACL.png 19:11, May 6, 2024 (EDT)
My comment was meant to highlight that not only was the minimum 6-month wait period not met, the user has repeatedly abused the account-creating system to bypass the renaming request system. Furthermore, the user has again created a new account, this time a month ago. This user cannot request another name change at this point in time, given that again they have essentially renamed their account. HylianAngel (talk) 19:51, May 6, 2024 (EDT)


it's me charmander7 i know my password no email connecton but i think i keep spelling it wrong or i forgot it help - unsigned comment from (talkcontribs)

nevermind Charmander7 (Talk) 14:44, July 29, 2023 (EDT)


You put on my talk page that I can’t take information from Wikipedia or copy with small changes. Now that I’m aware of that, can I delete it? Yoshi155 (Talk) 14:57, August 1, 2023 (EDT)

I already undid the edits you made that took information from Wikipedia, so you don't need to worry about having to remove it yourself. Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 05:21, August 2, 2023 (EDT)
Sorry for replying so late and not being specific, but I meant the notice on my talk page. Also, can you delete the two webp images I uploaded? There’s a barred knifejaw catch webp image and a squid catch one. Yoshi155 (Talk) 14:39, August 11, 2023 (EDT)
Sadly, the policy states that other users' messages can't be removed (with the exception of vandalism or personal attacks). I'll remove those images if you want, but it might be better to convert them to a higher quality file type. PNG is the preferred format, but webp is discouraged (but not prohibited completely). Hope this helps! Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 12:12, August 12, 2023 (EDT)
I don’t think I have a higher quality version of the pictures, so I think it would be better if you removed them.Yoshi155 (Talk) 16:15, August 12, 2023 (EDT)
Alright, I've removed them. Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 10:50, August 13, 2023 (EDT)


So since I lost acsess to Charmander7 account, I made this one. I punched in the first name I thought of. Hypothetically, could I ask someone to change my name to something else? Just because this name isn't really what I want SunsetBay 10:17, August 17, 2023 (EDT)

You could ask a bureaucrat, but it might be rejected because your old account was renamed on April 15, 2023. You can only have one rename every six months. Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 10:40, August 17, 2023 (EDT)

hi can you do me a favor??[edit]

please can you block Mickeyminniegoofydonald because of his user page i looks like cranston the blocked user. FroggyPotter (talk)

We're considering blocking all of Cranston's suspected sockpuppets, but I'm waiting for admin consensus. Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 11:30, August 18, 2023 (EDT)
Ty can you join me club??? FroggyPotter (talk)

Database error?[edit]

Hi Drago, while I was browsing on the villagers' page quite recently, for some reason I caught the Database Error notice when loading Twiggy's page (even though refreshing the page gets rid of the message). Is this error just a minor bug with nothing to worry about, or is it something else? Starry Windy 12:35, August 18, 2023 (EDT)

I'm not seeing that error at the moment, but I think I have seen it before. As it's a technical issue, I'd recommend asking Jake! Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 14:42, August 19, 2023 (EDT)

RE:Cranston's account[edit]

It was my sister apparently for a "prank" but I got blocked for no reason. SunsetBay 13:21, August 23, 2023 (EDT)

Low quality images[edit]

I uploaded 3 png images, but the pages have notices that say they’re blurry. I do have higher quality versions but they’re jpgs, so it won’t let me upload them as new versions of the files. What should I do? Yoshi155 (Talk) SMW Yoshi Egg Sprite.png 14:44, August 24, 2023 (EDT)

If that's the case you'll probably have to upload the new ones separately, unfortunately. If you like, you can tag the low-quality ones for deletion afterwards and we'll take care of it! Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 10:22, August 25, 2023 (EDT)
How do I tag a page for deletion? Also, unrelated, but I deleted my Welcome on my talk page when I got it because I didn’t know it counted as a user talk message, so I don’t know what to do about this either. Yoshi155 (Talk) SMW Yoshi Egg Sprite.png 20:31, August 25, 2023 (EDT)
You can tag a page for deletion with Template:Delete. There's full details on how to use the template if you use the link in my previous sentence; hope this helps! Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 14:03, August 26, 2023 (EDT)

"Names in other languages" translations[edit]

Hey Drago, I want to ask, if let's say translations on all languages lead to the same meaning, for example, the K.K. Slider song "I Love You", or any villager species like the birds, is it okay to retain those meanings in "Names in other languages", or should it be removed? Thanks in advance. Starry Windy 12:11, August 27, 2023 (EDT)

Sorry for the last reply (I'm not an expert on this subject). I agree that it seems odd that all those languages have the same meaning. You may want a second opinion, but I'm leaning towards removing those meanings. Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 12:21, August 28, 2023 (EDT)
All translations should remain even if it's redundant. A hyphen indicates that the original foreign name does not have a translation, or in the case of given names, that it does not have a meaning associated with it. HylianAngel (talk) 14:14, August 28, 2023 (EDT)
Okay, thanks for all of your advice, Drago and HylianAngel :) Starry Windy 23:49, August 28, 2023 (EDT)


hi how so you become a member of staff?? - unsigned comment from FroggyPotter (talkcontribs)

Full requirements and advice are here, but I'd recommend gaining more experience with editing (and our policies, since part of being a staff member is enforcing them) before applying. Hope this helps! Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 12:52, September 4, 2023 (EDT)
ok i read the policies but when it says Use of the second person ('you' or 'we') is discouraged, and any instances of this in an article should be replaced with 'the player' or the pronoun 'they' what dose it mean (sorry for using copy and paste).FroggyPotter (talk) 13:13, September 4, 2023 (EDT)
read the policy yesterday and today and i edited purple ceckerfly FroggyPotter (talk) 13:11, September 5, 2023 (EDT)
Re second person: this is hard to explain, but it basically means that the text is speaking directly to the reader. Second-person writing often includes words such as 'you', 'your' and 'we', which is why we often talk about not including 'you's in articles. Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 13:17, September 5, 2023 (EDT)
ah! thnx FroggyPotter (talk) 13:31, September 5, 2023 (EDT)

about edit to betta page[edit]

some people can misspell "Beta" to "Betta". So them may get confused. Yes.there's not so many people confused but some can get. - unsigned comment from SysDataSoft (talkcontribs)

I would agree, but we don't actually have a page called 'Beta' on Nookipedia. It redirects to Prerelease and unused content. Sorry for the late reply! Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 10:45, November 20, 2023 (EST)


Can you help me make a way for my talk button to directly link to my talk page? Thanks! KittyCupcake (talk) 13:35, December 23, 2023 (EST)

tasks maybe[edit]

Can you steer me to pages that need work or that need creating so I can maybe become a staff member please KittyCupcake (talk) 19:37, December 23, 2023 (EST)

Nookipedia:Maintenance is worth a look! Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 10:26, December 24, 2023 (EST)

Hi it’s SunsetBay[edit]

Hi I know my password but it is not working and I don’t connect my email because my parents don’t like it when I do that and I need help 15:13, March 13, 2024 (EDT)

so umm I thought I would just make a new account and then I noticed I const connect my email because I am under 13 anyway I made it my iPad password so I can’t forget! Because I enter that nearly every day. Raven Star (talk) 15:22, March 13, 2024 (EDT)
Hi me again I managed to find my password saved in my computer. I was on my iPhone when I was trying to make it work the other day.

About becoming staff[edit]

So, lately, I have considered becoming a staff on Nookipedia. I am trying to meet the criteria so I can apply. Just for reference, how many edits did you have when you applied for staff?Acnh Player (talk) 20:08, March 25, 2024 (EDT)

It was only a few hundred if I recall correctly, but this was 10 years ago when Nookipedia had less active editors, and was therefore in need of new staff. I wouldn't recommend posting an application as soon as you meet the criteria, since those requirements are merely there to stop new editors applying straight after making an account. Also, keep in mind that some of your edits have had to be reverted so I'm not sure an application would succeed in the short term. I'd recommend gaining a lot more experience on Nookipedia; there's no need to rush! Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 12:00, March 26, 2024 (EDT)


You said my signature does not link to my talk page or whatsoever. What's that? Acnh Player (talk) 12:42, March 26, 2024 (EDT)

Actually, it does contain a link. I was incorrectly looking at User:Acnh Player/sig (which didn't contain a link at the time). Sorry about that! Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 14:02, March 28, 2024 (EDT)


Hi Drago! I have a question on the wiki. First, how do I reply to comments? I saw your comment yesterday and wanted to reply, but I didn't know how to reply to you directly. Thank you!-Xtream- (talk) 08:55, April 7, 2024 (EDT)

You can simply click the 'edit' button at the top of that section, and then add your reply directly from there. Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 11:02, April 7, 2024 (EDT)
Thank you so much Drago!-Xtream- (talk) 11:04, April 7, 2024 (EDT)
Also, if you type the colon (:) it indents your comment.
types in
If you use two colons (::) you get a bigger indent. So basically if the comment above has two colons (::) then you type in three colons. (:::). If the previous comment has no colons, you type in one. You type in one more colon than the previous comment. Hope my advice helped! ACL.png Acnh Player (talk) ACL.png 11:21, April 7, 2024 (EDT)

I don't have access to that account anymore[edit]

So you can delete it. --Brianna Pachisu (talk) 10:51, April 12, 2024 (EDT)

Alright, thanks for letting me know! I can't delete it, but I could block it from editing. I'll go and change your username on the staff pages too! Again, thanks! Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 10:55, April 12, 2024 (EDT)

Why can't you delete my old talk page?[edit]

What is the reason, since there is nothing really important there that needs to be kept? --Brianna Pachisu (talk) 10:52, April 12, 2024 (EDT)

It's just what Nookipedia:Policy says about removing messages: Do not remove other users' messages, except in clear cases of vandalism, personal attacks, being off-topic, or maintenance (removing duplicate messages, moving to correct talk page, etc.). The messages on your page are not all off-topic. Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 10:55, April 12, 2024 (EDT)

Um... So... I wanna be staff?[edit]

So, I was editing today, but I suddenly realized that I met the criteria for applying for staff. So, if I apply, are you likely to support if I will make a lot of constructive edits from now? ACL.png Acnh Player (talk) ACL.png 15:35, April 13, 2024 (EDT)

Um... so...[edit]

I applied for patroller. Can you please leave a positive vote? Nookipedia:Staff/Apply ACL.png Acnh Player (talk) ACL.png 22:48, April 13, 2024 (EDT)

hi it is me froggypotter[edit]

I forgot my password to my old account can u pls delete it for me Ty Lexy (talk) 15:01, April 14, 2024 (EDT)

Hi! I may have mentioned it before, but accounts unfortunately can't be deleted, only blocked from editing. But I have concern over the number of times you and your sister have made new accounts because of forgotten passwords, and it's becoming almost impossible to keep track of both of your records. Are you absolutely sure you can't still access the old account? Thanks, Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 10:44, April 15, 2024 (EDT)
Sorry I keep forgetting them mostly bc I have a bad memory bc of adhd - unsigned comment from Lexy (talkcontribs)
Alright, thanks for your reply, and sorry to hear that! As I said, I can block your old account if you like, but I don't know if it will help. Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 13:40, April 15, 2024 (EDT)
Yes pls block it and can we be friends?? - unsigned comment from Lexy (talkcontribs)
Thanks! I've blocked the account, and this won't affect your current account. I appreciate the kind offer of a friendship request but I'd prefer to decline. Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 13:50, April 15, 2024 (EDT)
Why😭😭😭 - unsigned comment from Lexy (talkcontribs)


Should we start an anti-vandalism project? Every other day the wiki gets vandalized. ACL.png Acnh Player (talk) ACL.png 12:25, May 26, 2024 (EDT)

I appreciate the suggestion, but I don't think it's necessary, and I still believe our current method of dealing with vandalism is working well. If we truly wanted a vandalism-free wiki, we could introduce the moderation system that some other NIWA wikis have, but it's been rejected by staff once already. I don't think we need to go further unless the level of vandalism gets truly unbearable. Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 12:51, May 26, 2024 (EDT)

Error on WW fish list[edit]

I changed the blue marlin months to Jul-sep from jun-sep. However, you reverted them back and said not to undo the "cargo conversion." I have no idea what that is but the months are still wrong. The reason i undid the "cargo" is because i couldnt edit the months. - unsigned comment from (talkcontribs)

Cargo is a database that pulls information from other pages. The data is defined on each individual fish's page and stored in Cargo, and the list page queries the Cargo database to automatically generate a table. To correct the list, you need to edit the page where the data is defined (in this case, the Wild World section of the blue marlin page); the table on the list page will then be automatically updated. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 22:55, June 7, 2024 (EDT)
OK, thanks for that information. The blue marlin page is updated.Resetti456 (talk) 16:11, June 8, 2024 (EDT)
Thank you for pointing this error out! Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 10:41, June 9, 2024 (EDT)

How would this block template sound?[edit]

How can we improve it given you made a draft? Super Mario World Yoshi art.pngSuper Mario World 19:32, July 3, 2024 (EDT)

Feel free to propose it, although I'm starting to have reservations about whether the template needs to be changed at all. I may withdraw my own suggestion. Thanks for understanding! Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 11:21, July 4, 2024 (EDT)
