Hello! Welcome to my talk page! Feel free to post any questions or pics for the Your pictures section of my user page. If i know the answer to your question, i will answer.

Welcome to Nookipedia, John!

We're glad that you've chosen to create an account! You are now able to edit pages, join discussions, and expand the community-driven Animal Crossing encyclopedia.

If you haven't yet, you're also invited to join us at our Discord icon Discord server, where you'll find other Animal Crossing fans and wiki editors.

Before you jump into editing, here are some helpful things to keep in mind:

  • Read our wiki's editing, general use, and privacy policies.
  • Create your user page! Your user page is your own personal space to put anything you want.
  • Make effective edits. Preview them before you save to make sure they're perfect the first time around.
  • Use talk pages to resolve editing disputes. Don't 'edit war', or constantly re-edit/undo the same thing on a page.
  • If you have a question about something, be proactive. Ask for help. The staff won't bite.
  • Sign all talk page posts with four tildes (~~~~). This will turn into your name and the time you wrote the comment.
  • For more handy links and tutorials, please see the help pages.

If you're looking for some place to start, why not check out the Community Fountain? Here you will find current events and things to do.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask a wiki staff member, or at the Community Fountain talk page. We're always happy to help! Have a great time! -- Nookipedia Staff

Hello, welcome to Nookipedia! However, all your edits so far have been unconstructive, and continuing in this manner may lead to an Administrator placing a temporary block on your account. Please read our policy page to learn what is and isn't allowed. Thanks, Red Snapper 13:20, July 26, 2014 (EDT)

Your recent edits[edit]

The next time you create needlessly short, unconstructive pages or remove content placed on this talk page, I am afraid you may be reported to someone higher than me and face a far longer block than the 2-week one imposed a short while ago. Take care, Red Snapper 13:36, October 8, 2014 (EDT)


Becoming an admin (or other staff member) is not an easy task, and users should not put becoming an admin above helping the wiki on their list of priorities, but if you are interested, the general guidelines are here. Basically, edit constructively for a few months, become a trustworthy user, and then place your application on Nookipedia:Staff/Apply, following the instructions on the page. Other staff members then vote 'Support', 'Oppose' or whatever, and after a week, a bureaucrat or director will close the discussion and if the application was successful, promote you.

Re:A question from me[edit]

Yes, any user can upload personal images like the ones you have just uploaded for use on your user page. Ideally, it's wise to seek permission from a bureaucrat to possess more than five personal images at once, however. Drago (talk) Drago PC icon.png 12:08, February 20, 2015 (EST)

Just a heads-up; if you place personal images in any article about the Animal Crossing series they will be removed. Thank you for your co-operation. Drago (talk) Drago PC icon.png 13:11, February 21, 2015 (EST)

RE:My page is mine[edit]

Because placing the template on your user page could confuse others into thinking your user page is a 'proposed or future policy', even though it's clearly not. Drago (talk) Drago PC icon.png 12:58, February 25, 2015 (EST)

The main page[edit]

Yes, this is fine, as long as you don't start spamming it around the entire wiki. Drago (talk) Drago PC icon.png 14:10, March 1, 2015 (EST)

Personal Images[edit]

John, please be advised that you must add the {{personal_upload}} licensing tag to any upload you submit that will not be used in an encyclopedic article. All of your current uploads fall under this category and should be updated to include this tag. Additionally, several of your images are unused and will be deleted if they are not incorporated into your personal page within a reasonable time frame. I would suggest reviewing the upload policy before uploading any further images to ensure you are following site policy. Thanks! --Jake 21:12, March 2, 2015 (EST)

Personal Images (Response)[edit]

All images that you upload to our site must have a license associated with it, and must be used somewhere on the site. The files you have uploaded are all for personal use, so you need to go to each of them and edit the page to add the {{personal_upload}} tag (just copy and paste it in) and add them somewhere on your user page. Additionally, the policy I linked to above specifies that you may only have five personal uploads and you already have eight, so please do not upload any additional personal files or they may be deleted. --Jake 22:13, March 5, 2015 (EST)

Personal images again[edit]

I'm sorry, but you can't keep ignoring policy by uploading even more personal images when you're already above the limit, especially since most of them are unused. I'm afraid some random unused ones will now be deleted. Drago (talk) Drago PC icon.png 12:56, March 7, 2015 (EST)


What do you want to talk about? I'm not terribly active around here, but if you have anything to say, then shoot. Mario Signature.png 14:37, March 7, 2015 (EST)

I don't use Miiverse, but the Nintendo ID is LeftyGreenMario with Mii name as L.G. Mario. I happen to go by the same name in MarioWiki, and I'm fairly active over there. :) Mario Signature.png 19:03, March 10, 2015 (EDT)

Creating pages[edit]

Please don't create irrelevant pages, much less pages that advertise games. If you think Atari breakout is relevant to Nookipedia's goals, then let me know. But please don't create pages linking toward random websites, thanks; some people might find it as spam. Mario Signature.png 13:53, March 13, 2015 (EDT)


I haven't played a game with you, have I? Have I? I didn't think I had... Drago (talk) Drago PC icon.png 12:33, March 17, 2015 (EDT)

I don't understand what you are talking about... Drago (talk) Drago PC icon.png 12:37, March 27, 2015 (EDT)
