Updating the amiibo card template[edit]

In amiibo Festival's Desert Island Escape, every villager has a favourite fruit and special ability, I just thought it might be a good idea if we update the amiibo card template to include this and other information I may have forgotten to mention - ZCJigglypuff

Agreed. I may get around to editing it sometime this month. (Hopefully!) Thanks for the suggestion. :) Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 20:32, January 12, 2016 (EST)

Hey there![edit]

Nice to hear from you! Glad to see you've been productive (or trying to be...) and are going places in the romantic world. Splatoon is hella fun. Good luck with apps and I hope to see you around! ~SuperHamster Talk 21:44, January 12, 2016 (EST)

Sorry for the late reply- thanks! I finished both apps and am waiting to hear back. Crossing my fingers over here. :P Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 18:06, February 11, 2016 (EST)

Hey! Welcome back! I missed you! I was wondering when you'll be active again. Activity has certainly died a bit for me, however, but I still check here from time to time. I hope the the newer Animal Crossing games do get datamined as I've been checking for information on at least Happy Home Designer. I think, actually, our furniture images should use Happy Home Designer's sprites, and I've experimented with Patchwork items, but I appreciate more feedback. Thanks!

Glad you're still around! I checked the Patchwork items and I agree that the HHD sprites look great in the item lists and I would be in support of using them in place of the ACNL items (those come from the online Prima guide, right?). I still think that we should keep the ACNL images (if we have them uploaded) and move them to a gallery section at the bottom, because while the HHD sprites look nice, they aren't 100% accurate representations of what the item looks like in game. They are a bit stylized. I've checked and I *think* all of the sprites have been ripped, I've counted 1,734 furniture sprites in HHD... not sure if that's all the furniture in ACNL though? The main series/themes are there though and those matter the most. Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 18:06, February 11, 2016 (EST)
The New Leaf items are indeed from Prima, and I think Prima has everything. I'm also not sure if that's all the furniture items, but HHD does have the DLC stuff so chances are it has everything. While the sprites are stylized, they still give an accurate impression of what the furniture item looks like, not to mention that they at a consistent width and height unlike the Prima ones, and since they're transparent, they're more versatile, so I'd go for replacing them in general. I also agree moving Prima ones to a gallery just because, well, it doesn't hurt. Mario Signature.png 00:51, February 14, 2016 (EST)
I've uploaded all the images for the furniture series so far, and I see you've already replaced the images in at least one article- thanks for that! I will eventually go back and insert the images appropriately, but for now I'm focusing on editing and uploading them. If you ever have any time the images to the articles your help would be greatly appreciated. Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 16:26, February 15, 2016 (EST)
Fantastic! Now to go in and add those images... that's gonna take a while. Any items in HHD that is absent? I mean, the game doesn't include them for whatever reason? Mario Signature.png 22:22, March 1, 2016 (EST)

Images[edit]

Please don't upload too many images at once, as this floods the recent changes page and clogs up what the admins have to patrol. Thanks.

--MLAATR-Girl22 (talk) 13:36, February 13, 2016 (EST)

yeah!

--Wanda-Wizowski MacPherson (talk) 13:40, February 13, 2016 (EST)

It's poor courtesy to tell an administrator what to do, MLAATR-Girl22. If sunmarsh had been concerned about flooding the recent changes, I'm sure the directors would not have minded giving him temporary "bot" permissions. Also, sunmarsh's edits are automatically patrolled since he is an administrator. Red (talk) Red Snapper (Wild World).gif 13:40, February 13, 2016 (EST)

What about other users recent edits? Their edits might not be auto-patrolled like Sunmarsh because they might not be admins

--Pachisu123 (talk) 13:44, February 13, 2016 (EST)

Yeah, sorry, I understand what she means now. However, it does not mean that posting this comment was a good idea. Red (talk) Red Snapper (Wild World).gif 13:47, February 13, 2016 (EST)
For the record, there is no problem with uploading many images as long as they're constructive. Patrollers can filter the recent changes so that only unpatrolled edits are seen. ~SuperHamster Talk 19:33, February 13, 2016 (EST)
Per, there is absolutely no problem with uploading a lot of good and useable images. Remember, it's just hard work in progress. Mario Signature.png 00:47, February 14, 2016 (EST)
I do appreciate everyone's concern, and as others have already mentioned, as an administrator I'm well aware of what I'm doing, thanks. The images will be used on item pages in place of the ACNL images which will be moved to the gallery section of the page. I planned to post something about this on the Community Fountain to let everyone know what was going on, but I hadn't gotten around to it yet.

City Folk bugs page[edit]

Hi, I hope you enjoyed your break. Could you please take a look at Bugs/Animal Crossing: City Folk for me? I just completed the page, but the template needs a few corrections (the red links at the top, and also the 'Locations' parameter has pale text which is barely readable). Thanks! Red (talk) Red Snapper (Wild World).gif 12:58, April 12, 2016 (EDT)

I'll get to work on it straight away. Thanks for the head's up. :) Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 17:38, April 12, 2016 (EDT)
Alright, I've made the necessary changes. The Locations column had gray text because it used to be the Months column, which needs that text color because the months are abbreviated by their first letter and those in which the bug appears are highlighted green and the rest are left gray. The gray is automatically applied to that column, but the highlighting needs to be done by hand. I edited the page to correct that. The reason the links don't work is because the gamelink parameter is currently coded to only work properly with ACNL tables. Once I recode it to work with other games I will restore it on that page. Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 20:15, April 12, 2016 (EDT)
Thanks for all your hard work in correcting it! Red (talk) Red Snapper (Wild World).gif 07:22, April 13, 2016 (EDT)

Template:User Edit[edit]

Happened to just find out that you were able to finally figure out that dreaded "Template:User Edit" I was working on before I left staff. I wanted to thank you even more than that automated thanking option and congratulate you personally! I felt very incomplete having that project on hold due to my inexperience in that level of wiki editing and I am very glad you were able to get it working where I could not. Thank you very much! ~PoizonMushro0mPoizonMush Sig.png 23:07, April 23, 2016 (EDT)

You're very welcome, glad to help! :D Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 09:13, April 25, 2016 (EDT)

Mobile app[edit]

Was about to start the mobile app article, and I realized you already got it covered! Just wanted to say great work - it's a lot more in-depth than I could have imagined. ~SuperHamster Talk 18:42, April 27, 2016 (EDT) P.S. Pushed the article out to our social media. ~SuperHamster Talk 18:44, April 27, 2016 (EDT)

You're very welcome- wanted to start the page off right. :D P.S. That's awesome, thanks! Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 18:46, April 27, 2016 (EDT)

Revive Project Museum?[edit]

With me and you doing a lot of editing on fish and bug pages recently, I wonder if now may be the time to consider reviving Project Museum/FishBuggyPedia (which has been dead since 2013)? There's still a lot of work to be done in this area, especially on bug articles. Barren sections need info adding to them, fish lists need to be completed, and of course there's the revamps of the Fish and Bug pages that you're carrying out. It's only a suggestion, but if you're interested, one or both of us could consider starting the project back up again. Thanks for your time! Red (talk) Red Snapper (Wild World).gif 12:41, June 24, 2016 (EDT)

I agree that the pages need to be revisited- some of them don't even have images on them. I don't think I have the time to devote to spearheading another project myself, but if you'd like to start it I'll help you in whatever ways I can. Smily.png I plan to finish the Fish page at the very least, so you'll have something to go on for the other pages. Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 15:19, June 24, 2016 (EDT)

Template Help[edit]

Hey Sunmarsh! I've been attempting to make a villager template for Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival, in particular, the Desert Island Escape mode, as it is the only mode that has attributes for each character that isn't already shown on each characters amiibo card. ( For example in "amiibo Card Battle", while each character has attributes, these attributes are already on the cards [dice value and star-sign]). Unfortunately, template making isn't really something I know how to do, so I thought I'd ask if you would be able to do the job. What I've done is in my sandbox. It doesn't look too amazing, and there needs to be room for when we can find good quality sprites of the attributes icons from the game, but hopefully it is enough for you to understand what needs to be in it. Thanks a bunch! :D ZCJigglypuff(Talk) 07:34, August 15, 2016 (EDT)

Hey there ZCJigglypuff (TalkContributions), I know you've mentioned this before and I apologize for not working on it until now. As I may have mentioned before, I think information for Desert Island Escape is best placed on that game's page, rather than added as an additional template tagged onto each villager's article page. For that reason, I've created a table on the Desert Island Escape page where this information can be documented. If you have any questions about the table, or suggestions for improvement, let me know. Information for the first 100 AC amiibo cards (+ a guide to Desert Island Escape) can be found here.
Wow, the table looks really good! I think everything looks really nice and it perfectly demonstrates everything. The only thing I think could be added is a spot on the table for each villagers icon from the game ( Like the Gabi icon from my Sandbox) I'll upload the ones I got of Goldie, Rosie, Stitches and Eugene as soon as I get home, so you can see if you think they would fit into the table well or not . Thanks again! ZCJigglypuff(Talk) 17:44, August 15, 2016 (EDT)

Do you know what my username means?[edit]

--Beethoven Freak (talk) 14:49, December 25, 2016 (EST)

I assume you like Beethoven? Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 19:44, December 25, 2016 (EST)

My username makes sense[edit]

Because i think i have a lot in common with beethoven in personality, hair(sometimes), etc. even as a little kid before i knew much about beethoven. --Beethoven Freak (talk) 18:57, December 26, 2016 (EST)

Sounds cool, I don't know much about Beethoven but I do admire his work. :) Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 20:24, December 26, 2016 (EST)

Re: Lava Lamp Refurbish subpage[edit]

There is some discussion on the refurbishing subpage of Lava Lamp Set. There is a small consensus for deletion, which includes me, but I'm holding out to check your thoughts, since you were the one who made the move. Thanks! Mario Signature.png 01:37, January 12, 2017 (EST)

Tarantulas[edit]

I don't know if I am in the right place, if not please forgive me and correct me. I am CAK491. I need help to catching a tarantula. I have caughten 3 scorpions, but no tarantulas, and where/when do you find a giant snakehead? - unsigned comment from CAK491 (talkcontribs)

We have a few people over on our Discord who would be willing to help you on that, CAK491, if you're interested... ;) ~PoizonMushro0mPoizonMush Sig.png 01:04, August 18, 2017 (EDT)
