As you can see on the Recent Changes, there's some annoying vandals just blanking pages and creating pointless ones. We should do something about this. --Safyire (talk) 23:38, May 28, 2015 (EDT)

Wookiee's got the latest one covered. Sorry I couldn't help, but unfortunately I cannot be online 24/7. As for the problem as a whole, there's not much that can be done. We can't even place a range block on the vandals, since they are all coming from completely different IP ranges. Might bring up a discussion on the forums to see if we should disable IP editing again. Red (talk) Red Snapper WW.png 11:47, May 29, 2015 (EDT)

If you disable IP editing, will it be permanent or not?

-- 13:48, May 29, 2015 (EDT)

Nope, it will only be temporary, to allow the vandal(s) to move on. It looks like this will be implemented soon as well, especially if the vandal returns yet again. I'd suggest that you create an account to edit to avoid any problems. Your contributions have not gone unnoticed. :) Red (talk) Red Snapper WW.png 05:30, May 30, 2015 (EDT)

Some pointers on converting the CF bug table

Hey Red, I see you're working on updating the CF table- thanks a lot! You mentioned having trouble getting the months to display right- here's how that part of the template works: All text entered in that column is automatically made small and grey. What you need to do is enter the month abbreviations "J F M A M J J A S O N D" and then change the color and bold the months where the bug appears. Let's say that there is a bug that is found in April and July through September. Here's the code you'd use to show that:

J F M {{Colorshow|32B311|'''A'''}} M J {{Colorshow|32B311|'''J A S'''}} O N D

which would look like this in the table: J F M A M J J A S O N D.

You may have noticed that I used a different code in the fish tables...

J F M <font color{{=}}"#32B311">'''A'''</font> M <font color{{=}}"#32B311">'''J J A S'''</font> O N D

This is because I hadn't yet realized that Template:Colorshow does the same thing. Using the template is easier, IMO, but you can use whichever format makes life easier for you.

I also wanted to give you a few tips for converting the table. Because the new template format is very similar to the original layout of the table input, just without a lot of the cell-specific CSS code, using a series of find and replace commands will make short work of the conversion process. I use an add-on called Find and Replace for Firefox and it works great. You should be able to find something similar if you use a common web browser. To convert that table you're working on, here's what I would do.

  1. Replace all instances of "| style="border: 1px solid #DAEDD3;" |" with "| ". (This gives us an extra space in some cases, which we remove in the next step.)
  2. Replace all instances of "|  <small>" with "| <small>"
  3. Replace all instances of "| bgcolor="#C8E1B0" style="border: 0px solid #DAEDD3;" |[[" with "| [["
  4. Manually replace the "|-" at the start of the list with "{{TableContent".
  5. Replace all remaining instances of "|-" with

And you're basically done. Let me know if you have any questions about the conversion process or anything template related. Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 10:50, August 3, 2015 (EDT)


I discourage contacting any obvious vandals since they desire attention. If another user causes such disruptive edits again, a quick perma block does the trick. Mario Signature.png 20:57, August 24, 2015 (EDT)

I suspect they were the same vandals with the same kind of "n00bs got rekt" "scrubz" and other similar incoherent content, but their I.P.s share different strings. Either way, they have nary a single not-even-barely constructive edit out of all 5-10 edits they've made, so they get a block. Mario Signature.png 13:45, August 26, 2015 (EDT)

Heavy Vandalism

I got an email stating that someone changed a page I was watching. It turned out to be vandalism. From the recent changes page, you can see that JohnCenaFan7 and Chadderbox have been heavily vandalizing the Wiki. Please ban or warn them as they are disruptive.

Thanks, Pokebub (talk) 19:26, September 9, 2015 (EDT)


How do you create subpages?

Age limit

Is there an age limit for the bulletin board forums? --Pachisu123 (talk) 15:31, October 21, 2015 (EDT)

I believe as long as you are over 12, you should be fine. 2607:FB90:516:3A6C:38F3:BE34:2889:1EA0 15:32, October 22, 2015 (EDT)
There really isn't an enforced age limit. Age isn't as important as overall conduct. Mario Signature.png 16:34, October 22, 2015 (EDT)

Signature Problem

Can you please tell me how to do a font for your signature? I´ve tried everything I can think of but it still doesn work. (I know you have to go to your preferences, but I still can have a font).

Heidy Isabel (talk) 12:41, October 23, 2015 (EDT)

I've got it to work on my signature page but whenever i acutally try to sign it, this happens: User:Heidy Isabel|<span style="font-family:Verdana;color:hotpink">Heidy</span>]] [[User talk:Heidy Isabel|<span style="font-family:Verdana;color:green">Isabel</span> (talk) 18:40, October 23, 2015 (EDT)

I.P. spam

It's clear from this user's edits that it's just vandalizing the page. Just block it immediately next time you encounter a user like this rather than giving it an informal warning. Warnings on edit wars are reserved for two or more otherwise good-faith users who disagree but inappropriately handle it. Thanks. Mario Signature.png 22:54, November 23, 2015 (EST)

Help me!!

How do I customize the Reddit userbox so it can link to my Reddit profile?

--Love4Lottie (talk) 15:04, January 29, 2016 (EST)


I thouht that only mainspace and policy page talk pages didn't allow nonconstructive messages. The image that Miku and tonfan posted messages on was not animal crossing related and is my image so people should be able to post opinions on there because i made the image. Right? Or does nookipedia policy overrule it? --Pachisu123 (talk) 13:29, February 23, 2016 (EST)

Fans of Isabelle Talk Pages

Hey Red, I recieved notifications that you have restored the talk pages pertaining to the Fans of Isabelle wiki group I created. I am curious as to why the talk pages have been restored, but not the main page. I know it might have been discussed in the staff board of the forums, but I just wanna know since I am the one who created the pages and I feel like I might have done something that I shouldn't have. Thanks! :) ~PoizonMushro0mPoizonMush Sig.png 19:02, February 23, 2016 (EST)

Animal Crossing's 15th Anniversary

Hey Red, I just thought it might be a good idea to put in the news section about the anniversary and maybe some other stuff to celebrate. Thanks :) 20:35, April 16, 2016 (EDT)ZCJigglypuff (talk)

A award.

Your edits on the Mainspace are excellent! Congratulations!! Princess Peach [[Image:Bulborb Buffet.jpg|40px]] (talk) 12:08, April 30, 2016 (EDT)

Note: im still TabuuandRover for now Princess Peach [[Image:Bulborb Buffet.jpg|40px]] (talk) 12:08, April 30, 2016 (EDT)

Thanks much! :) (But since I feel like grumbling, I will advise you to fix the image in your signature). Red (talk) Red Snapper WW.png 13:18, April 30, 2016 (EDT)

Well, see my template: Template:TabuuandRover/sig. It's weird, on the template it shows my signature correctly, but on talk pages it doesn't look right... Princess Peach [[Image:Bulborb Buffet.jpg|40px]] (talk) 18:08, April 30, 2016 (EDT)

Maybe you could change 'image' to 'file'? Also, it'd be better if the signature page was in userspace because the Template namespace is mainly for templates used in articles or other non-user related pages. Red (talk) Red Snapper WW.png 12:45, May 1, 2016 (EDT)

my User Page.

I think my User Page should be moved only by an administrator, It happened on Wikipedia where I have an account and accidentally moved it and I don't want a repeat, here's the link to my history of my Wikipedia User Page: And please make it where only administrators can move it. Thanks! Mario und Prinzessin Peach.jpg Princess Peach Bulborb Buffet.jpg 21:14, May 7, 2016 (EDT)

I've done this for you. Red (talk) Red Snapper WW.png 11:08, May 8, 2016 (EDT)

Idea for a new userbox not responded to.

I have left an idea for a Userbox, but it hasn't been responded to. For a quick access click on this link: Thanks!

Before I go on a 2 week break.

Before I go on a 2 week break, I have withdrawn for my application for patroller.The reason is to avoid Personal Attacks on an old friend of mine. Thanks! Mario und Prinzessin Peach.jpg Princess Peach Bulborb Buffet.jpg 13:51, May 12, 2016 (EDT)

Oh? Mario Signature.png 13:57, May 12, 2016 (EDT)

Okay my humor came out I wasn't going to take a break after all! Mario und Prinzessin Peach.jpg Princess Peach Bulborb Buffet.jpg 14:06, May 12, 2016 (EDT)

Please be careful. You've started making some unconstructive comments, especially the ones in this section. You need to work on this if you want to be staff in future. Red (talk) Red Snapper WW.png 15:18, May 12, 2016 (EDT)

It's about time!

It's about time for you to be a bureaucrat! Mario und Prinzessin Peach.jpg Princess Peach Bulborb Buffet.jpg 21:00, May 12, 2016 (EDT)

Oh, are you saying that you want to nominate me to be a 'crat? Well actually, I don't think I'm ready yet, and I'll decide on my own when I believe I am. Thanks! Red (talk) Red Snapper WW.png 12:40, May 13, 2016 (EDT)

Two categories to be upgraded from Semi Protection to create

I think that Category:Butts‏‎, and the other one that makes me sick to my stomach that I don't want to say, needs to be [Create=only allow syops] It's gross and inappropriate for younger users. Thanks in advance! Mario und Prinzessin Peach.jpg Princess Peach Bulborb Buffet.jpg 23:45, May 16, 2016 (EDT)

I think the current protection level is sufficient since it hasn't been recreated in over 2 years. We generally try to use sysop protection sparingly and not preemptively. --Jake 00:50, May 17, 2016 (EDT)


On the Forums, I need it comfirmed my an admin there, I don't know if you are one. My original was the same as my username, but with a nonsense email, I created a new one with an email that I created yesterday, that one is Dr. Greg Forbes. So if you are an admin there please comfirm it, I usually have emails instantly, so can you do it? Thanks! Mario und Prinzessin Peach.jpg Princess Peach Bulborb Buffet.jpg 20:25, May 25, 2016 (EDT)

Hey there. The Forums are currently set so that all accounts have to be approved, to prevent spam attacks. I've gone ahead and approved your account. ~SuperHamster Talk 22:55, May 25, 2016 (EDT)

Edits made to your pages

My apologies for editing your personal pages- when I moved the Red Snapper image it broke all your stuff, and I felt that as I was the one who originated the change that it would be a courtesy to fix it on your pages. I hope you don't mind. ^^; - unsigned comment from sunmarsh (talkcontribs)

Yeah, thanks for fixing those. I'd have noticed sooner or later anyway. :P Red (talk) Red Snapper WW.png 11:39, June 17, 2016 (EDT)

-small templates

I noticed the templates you made to add <small> code to Animal Crossing title abbreviation links, and as a test, I have edited Template:NL to allow for this (e.g. {{NL|sm|shortest}}NL). If this is satisfactory I can add the functionality to the rest of the link templates. Just let me know. Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 18:08, August 21, 2016 (EDT)

Thanks, and please do add the functionality. Eventually, I'll make the changes to the articles I used the 'small' templates on and then they can be deleted. :) Red (talk) Red Snapper WW.png 10:54, August 22, 2016 (EDT)

New NL villagers

Hey there, I've found some of the amiibo cards for the new NL update, here. As an admin, do you think they already require pages, since we have pictures and names for them? I'm still looking if I can find any others. Qyzxf (talk) 07:49, September 3, 2016 (EDT)


Hey again, I've uploaded a large amount of DnMe+ character images but I had to upload them separately from the original files because most of them were different file formats. Is there some kind of text replacement bot that the admins can use to replace every old image with the new ones? It'd be more convenient than having to edit every page :P - Qyzxf (talk) 12:40, September 4, 2016 (EDT)
