Hi[edit]

Could you rename me to "Baby Luigi"? I lost my password...and my sis already told you about it. Please? -BabyLuigi PiT sprite.pngBaby Luigi(Talk to me?)

Done. Be sure to enter an email into your preferences, in case you do forget your password again :) ~SuperHamster Talk 17:02, July 27, 2014 (EDT)
Thanks. Oh I'm way ahead of you: I made sure I have a valid email and confirmed it :p -BabyLuigi PiT sprite.pngBaby Luigi(Talk to me?)

Questions about undoing edits[edit]

Excuse my newbieness, but is there any difference between undoing an article's most recent edit, editing/saving the penultimate author's edit, and rolling back the edit? I realize that 'undo' will auto-populate the change summary field, is that the only difference? (Haven't tried rollback yet, tbh... does it let you provide a summary?) EDIT: Also, do I still need to mark an edit as patrolled even after I revert it? And (stupid question) should I make sure to patrol all edits that I see that need patrolling? --sunmarsh (talk) 23:02, August 7, 2014 (EDT)

Undo will revert the last edit, while rollback undoes all edits made by the last editor (so potentially several edits). If you undo an edit, you still have to patrol the reverted edit I believe. In regards to patrolling edits you see in need of patrolling, it is swell if you do patrol them, but you do not have to. Hope this helps a little! ~~SuperAlpaca (talk) 23:49, August 7, 2014 (EDT)
Expanding on SA's excellent answer, rolling back an edit is instant, and does not let you provide an edit summary. I typically only use roll backs for obvious vandalism, especially when an editor has made a series of vandalistic edits and I need to quickly revert them all. Otherwise, doing an undo with an edit summary is usually your best bet. Rolling back an edit does mark an edit as patrolled, I believe (unlike undoing, which SA mentioned). ~SuperHamster Talk 00:34, August 8, 2014 (EDT)
Regarding the patrolling, if you do happen to see unpatrolled edits (with the red !) while viewing the recent changes list, it is part of your responsibility as a patroller to check them out and either mark them as patrolled or rollback/undo malicious ones. However, as SA said, you don't have to make it a point to patrol every single edit and you shouldn't go out of your way to look for unpatrolled edits. --Jake 13:32, August 8, 2014 (EDT)

Honoured Member help!![edit]

Hey superhamster, I made 150 legitimate edits to the wiki (not spam, good edits) before 30 days, but it says I am not on the list of Honoured Users. Users. Do you know why?--Marcus (talk) 21:31, October 8, 2014 (EDT)

Hey Marcus - I believe that edits to the userspace no longer count towards the Honored Member count, sorry! This was changed a while back to keep the award focused on edits to articles, files, and other wiki content. I'll review the exact conditions with Jake and will update our page on that soon.
If you take a look at the bottom of Special:HonoredMembers, if will tell you exactly how many edits you have that count towards becoming an Honored Member, along with how many more you need. ~SuperHamster Talk 03:23, October 9, 2014 (EDT)

I checked on the page, it didn't say how many more I needed.--Marcus (talk) 07:55, October 9, 2014 (EDT)

That's 'cause only staff members (patrollers and administrators) can see the count, sorry! And I know for a fact that edits marked as 'minor' don't count either. Red Snapper 11:50, October 9, 2014 (EDT)
Whoop, thanks Red! But yea, we'll try to get an exact list of the edits that do and do not count towards Honored Member status. ~SuperHamster Talk 12:48, October 9, 2014 (EDT)

ItemList template questions[edit]

Hey there Kevin, I wanted to get some feedback on the ItemList template and ask a few questions. First off, the class "collapsible" that is applied to tables and "mw-collapsible" that is applied to divs to make them collapsible has a few annoying features and I was wondering if it's possible to modify the HTML/CSS code for these classes to fix them? The main issue is with the placement of the 'show'/'hide' buttons. In this table the show/hide button is not vertically centered; is it possible to change the vertical alignment of the button? In this table the button appears awkwardly above the header in the table's first column. This is because the button 'takes up' quite a bit of space before it and essentially 'pushes' the text to the line below it. Is there any way we can change this so that the button doesn't take up so much invisible space to its left? It might also be helpful to add just a bit of padding on the button's right side so it doesn't brush up against the side like it does in the navboxes (e.g. Template:Furniture).

While I'm at it, I also wanted to get your opinion on collapsible item lists in general. Do you think that it's awkward to have the show/hide button in the first column (like this)? Or do you think it's better above the table with a heading (like this)? And do you think nia.png is appropriate to use if we don't have an image of the item on-hand? Or should we just leave the field blank?

Lastly, I wanted to ask again about Nookipedia's YouTube account and what you wanted me to do in the meantime while Jake is (maybe... hopefully... ;P) looking into a solution for the ACGC video files. Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 17:15, October 18, 2014 (EDT)

Hey Sun! I really wish I could have an answer about editing the table HTML/CSS to accomplish what you want, but that's something I don't have experience with for MediaWiki. I'll have to discuss that with Jake - mind starting a discussion on the Bulletin Board between us? I'll send him a ping to join the discussion once done.
As for the preferred table, I like the latter a lot better. Having the title and the show/hide button on the right side is simpler and cleaner IMO, but that's my two cents.
I'd also support having an image placeholder for missing images, since it looks a bit awkward to have a mix of single- and multiple-line rows.
Aaand finally, I've shot Jake a message about the YouTube account. I'll get back to you on that :) Great work on the tables so far, love them! ~SuperHamster Talk 21:20, October 18, 2014 (EDT)
Sorry it's taken so long, I've added you both to a conversation over on the forums about modifying the CSS/HTML code for those classes. Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 16:52, October 27, 2014 (EDT)
Nice, thanks! I shot Jake a message, hopefully he could take a look into it. ~SuperHamster Talk 17:44, October 27, 2014 (EDT)

Bulletin Board[edit]

I noticed a spam thread posted by a new member on our forums, can you please deal with it? Thank you! Red (talk) Red Snapper (Wild World).gif 12:18, November 10, 2014 (EST)

Done, thank you! Will try to keep out in the near future for more. ~SuperHamster Talk 00:17, November 11, 2014 (EST)
Sure thing. Another one has appeared today. Red (talk) Red Snapper (Wild World).gif 12:03, November 12, 2014 (EST)

Main Page DLC Section Editable?[edit]

Hello, Eric Here! (new to Nookipedia, but enjoying it so far!)

Not a huge deal but I created my account to add to the DLC section on the Main Page for November (Scorpion Lamp) but I can't seem to edit that part. If this was deliberate to prevent vandalism I understand. Also I haven't gotten my confirmation email yet but I can of course wait on that. Thanks! This is an incredible reference tool and I use it just about every time I play New Leaf. Keep up the excellent work. (: - unsigned comment from Silentone13 (talkcontribs) 17:45, 23 November 2014‎ (UTC)

Hey there Eric - welcome to the wiki, and sorry for the late reply! The DLC template is indeed protected, since it's on the Main Page and is shown to nearly all visitors. I've gone ahead and updated the DLC for December, so thanks for the reminder! In the future, feel free to contact me or another staff member if we forget to update it.
As for the confirmation email, be sure to check your spam folder. If it's not there, I do remember a few other instances of editors having problems with confirmation emails, so get back to me if you can't find it and I'll try to see what's going on. Thanks, ~SuperHamster Talk 18:46, November 26, 2014 (EST)
Sorry to butt in, but I've been having trouble for months, and yes, I've checked the spam folder on virtually every attempt (didn't User:Technickal have some trouble with this as well?). So I think we may have a 'technickal' (pardon the pun) problem here that could use some fixing. Drago (talk) Drago PC icon.png 06:27, November 29, 2014 (EST)
Gotcha, thanks for the update - I see we discussed it back in April. I'll get in touch with Jake. Thanks, ~SuperHamster Talk 22:24, November 29, 2014 (EST)

Possible vandalism[edit]

Reverted some edits made by Hashir, I believe they may have been an act of vandalism and not a youngster who didn't know better. I don't know if you want to give them a warning or temporary ban, but I thought I would let you know as I wasn't sure what action to take. Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 12:16, November 30, 2014 (EST)

Thanks for the heads up. I've left a message on their talk page for now - anything more should result in a block. Thanks, ~SuperHamster Talk 13:59, November 30, 2014 (EST)

Hi there - I don't actually play New Leaf right now! ~SuperHamster Talk 22:46, May 22, 2015 (EDT)

Forum topic about IP address range thing[edit]

Red snapper says there's a forum topic about IP ranges and stuff like that but the thread is in the staff discussion child board so I can't view it. Are you able to move it out of the child board(Mario said I could ask you about it)

--50.136.149.237 17:58, May 31, 2015 (EDT)

If everyone is fine with it, we'll move it. I'll get back to you if so :) Thanks, ~SuperHamster Talk 21:41, May 31, 2015 (EDT)
With everyone's permission, the thread has been moved here. Thanks, ~SuperHamster Talk 21:12, June 1, 2015 (EDT)

Re:Bureaucrat[edit]

Yes! I'd be more than happy to receive another promotion. Thanks! We need bureaucrats around here anyway! I'm honored to know that I'm trusted enough here to be recommended to be among the highest ranks in Nookipedia! Again, thanks! Mario Signature.png 00:15, June 1, 2015 (EDT)

Great, thanks Mario! I've put up your nomination. ~SuperHamster Talk 17:09, June 1, 2015 (EDT)

Thanks so much for the award! :) -BabyLuigi PiT sprite.pngBaby Luigi(Talk to me?) 16:16, June 4, 2015 (EDT)

Vacation template[edit]

Do you think Nookipedia should have a vacation template? It would be helpful if we had a template so the community would know if a certain user wasn't going to be editing for some time. Just a thought, since I'm planning on using it soon (although last time I just created my own and built it into my talk page :P) Red (talk) Red Snapper (Wild World).gif 12:53, June 16, 2015 (EDT)

Yea, definitely! Feel free to make one, or I can try my hand at it when I get off work tonight. Took my lunch break for this E3 presentation. A good thing I did ;P ~SuperHamster Talk 12:56, June 16, 2015 (EDT)
I've created one, but since I'm not an expert in template creation, it's not 100% complete. The image could be shifted farther to the right, but I don't know how this is done. Red (talk) Red Snapper (Wild World).gif 13:27, June 16, 2015 (EDT)
I'll take a look later tonight. Thanks! ~SuperHamster Talk 13:30, June 16, 2015 (EDT)
@Red, wheres the template? - HomerJC (talk) 17:50, July 25, 2015 (EDT)

Amiibo Festival Page Shortcut[edit]

Hey SH, do we happen to have a page shortcut for Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival like we do for {{NL}}? ~PoizonMushro0mPoizonMush Sig.png 20:37, August 2, 2015 (EDT)

Yes, it's {{AMF}}. --Jake 20:44, August 2, 2015 (EDT)
Thank you! ~PoizonMushro0mPoizonMush Sig.png 21:36, August 2, 2015 (EDT)

Question[edit]

I have a curious question for you, SuperHamster. Are your edits to file pages with an edit summary of 'Adding and/or correcting licensing information (Game Screenshot)' automated? Red (talk) Red Snapper (Wild World).gif 15:24, August 3, 2015 (EDT)

Yes, actually! When I first joined Nookipedia, one of the first things I did was tag images with licensing tags. At some point, SuperAlpaca was shocked to find out my tagging wasn't automated, as there were hundreds upon hundreds of images to tag...so I found a script from Wikipedia and brought it here at User:SuperHamster/vector.js. This script adds a button to the left of my username that, when clicked, replaces all the content of the page you are on with the 'game screenshot' licensing tag. If you do ever want to use it or modify it, feel free :) ~SuperHamster Talk 19:58, August 3, 2015 (EDT)
Aw, does that mean it only works on the Vector skin? I don't want to lose the seasonal colours of the default skin just for this tool... Red (talk) Red Snapper (Wild World).gif 05:43, August 6, 2015 (EDT)
I imagine it should work with other skins, though I'm not entirely sure and it's been forever since I messed with it. I'd try it out! ~SuperHamster Talk 23:08, August 6, 2015 (EDT)

Uploading a replacement image with a different MIME type[edit]

I'm trying to replace the current image of Flurry we have on file and the new image is .png while the previous image is .JPG. When I try to replace the old image I can't because their file types differ. I don't want to convert the .png to .JPG as we lose the transparent background in the process. What is the best way to deal with this? Sunmarshsignature.png (talk) 16:57, August 21, 2015 (EDT)

Hey Sunmarsh - I'd upload the file under a new name (name.png), replace all the .jpg images with the .png, and then delete the .jpg. This is all assuming they're the same image. ~SuperHamster Talk 23:12, August 21, 2015 (EDT)

RE: Hey thanks![edit]

Hey, no problem man. Glad to be of service to you. :)

Pokebub (talk) 21:30, September 9, 2015 (EDT)

question[edit]

Hey, is it possible to get my user account renamed? I made this account quite a while back and dont really like the name; if not, thats fine too. ~ Toad'ShyGuy (talk) 15:08, September 12, 2015 (EDT)

Hey there - it is! Just let me know what username you'd like. Your old userpage and user talk page will redirect to your new username. ~SuperHamster Talk 15:50, September 12, 2015 (EDT)
it might sound a little weird, but since I use this name on other places too and have been doing so for a while, can you rename me to Qyzxf ~ Toad'ShyGuy (talk) 09:58, September 14, 2015 (EDT)
Done. --Jake 13:38, September 14, 2015 (EDT)
Thanks for tackling this Jake :) ~SuperHamster Talk 13:49, September 14, 2015 (EDT)

Bulletin Board problems[edit]

Hello. I've noticed two small problems on the bulletin boards. The 'Recent Status Updates' box is not functioning correctly for me. It shows out of date status updates (from Nov 4, 2014 to Jan 5, 2015) rather than the actual latest ones. Also, I can't start conversations, hence why I'm posting these issues here.

Do you know what is wrong? Red (snappity snap snap!) Red Snapper (Wild World).gif 11:04, September 13, 2015 (EDT)

It wouldn't let me reply there, so I'll reply here. It definitely has something to do with moving TBB to a new server/database a few days ago, but I'm not currently aware of the exact issue. I'm going to have to do some investigation still to find out what exactly is going on. --Jake 15:49, September 13, 2015 (EDT)
For the record, I've received messages on the Bulletin Board from both of you. It might be saying that the message failed to send, but it gets sent anyway? ~SuperHamster Talk 16:05, September 13, 2015 (EDT)
Ok, it turns out the posting problem was actually because of the email setup. I've fixed this, so posting should be working as usual. I'm still working on the recent status updates issue. --Jake 19:26, September 13, 2015 (EDT)

Username change[edit]

Yes, I want my username to be rather "Heidy Isabel" than "Heidy.isabel". Thanks Heidy.isabel (talk) 19:11, September 20, 2015 (EDT)

Done! Your old userpage now redirects to your new one. ~SuperHamster Talk 20:39, September 20, 2015 (EDT)

Thanks a bunch! Heidy.isabel (talk) 01:22, September 21, 2015 (EDT)

Bulletin boards[edit]

Some new accounts on the bulletin boards are posting gay porn threads. Please fix ASAP! Red (snappity snap snap!) Red Snapper (Wild World).gif 11:48, September 28, 2015 (EDT)

Took care of that this morning - thank you for the heads up! Interestingly those accounts were created back in 2014... ~SuperHamster Talk 16:57, September 28, 2015 (EDT)

Can you change names of a file?[edit]

So recently, I uploaded a bunch of files of amiibo cards. I listed them as being North American. However, I've just learned that they are actually from Europe. Is therea way you can changed the name and summary of a file? Thanks.

Heidy Isabel November 10, 2015, 05:01 (EDT)

Hey Heidy - yes! Admins and above can move files. It seems like a fair tool to give to Patrollers, however, so I will bring up with Jake the idea of granting Patrollers the ability to move files too. Otherwise, I can take care of moving them. Thanks! ~SuperHamster Talk 00:30, November 10, 2015 (EST)
Correct me if I'm wrong, but can't Patrollers move files? Trainiax has moved some files after all, and he's a patroller. Mario Signature.png 00:40, November 10, 2015 (EST)
But what about the summary? Is it possible to change that? Heidy Isabel 00:45, November 10, 2015 (EDT)
Mario - you got me! I saw that admins had the movefile right, without realizing that all users actually do. Thanks for the correction.
Heidy - you can go ahead and move files using the "move" link at the top of the file page. Summaries can be changed by editing the file page like you would any article. ~SuperHamster Talk 00:50, November 10, 2015 (EST)
If you already linked the files, make sure after you're done moving, you delete the file redirects. Or, you can move files without leaving a file redirect behind, but make sure you update the image links or else the images won't show up in their respective pages. Mario Signature.png 01:13, November 10, 2015 (EST)
I think I've got it to work now. I'll check tomorrow. Thanks for both of help! Heidy Isabel 01:36, November 10, 2015 (EDT)
No problem. Moving files isn't hard. Remember, delete the file redirects once you're done updating the links. Mario Signature.png 01:49, November 10, 2015 (EST)

Request (2)[edit]

Could you please hide this revision? [1] Thank you! Red (snappity snap snap!) 20px 14:45, November 19, 2015 (EST)

Done, thank you. ~SuperHamster Talk 14:46, November 19, 2015 (EST)
I'm very suspicious that a new account ('Ultramayor') is a sockpuppet of blocked user Zack; he's made an identical bad edit. Could you please check? Red (snappity snap snap!) 20px 15:20, November 19, 2015 (EST)
Confirmed sock - blocked the sock account indefinitely as a result. Thanks! ~SuperHamster Talk 15:25, November 19, 2015 (EST)
So should Zack's ban be extended then? What do you think? Red (snappity snap snap!) 20px 15:28, November 19, 2015 (EST)
I think it's a good idea. Use your best judgement :) ~SuperHamster Talk 15:29, November 19, 2015 (EST)
On second thoughts, it's not worth it, since this guy is autoblocked now anyway for 24 hours thanks to my initial block on Ultramayor. If any more socks are created though, the ban can definitely be extended. Red (snappity snap snap!) 20px 15:35, November 19, 2015 (EST)

Uhh, what?[edit]

  • I found this on my disk...

Hey there - where did you get the file from? What folder did you find it in? ~SuperHamster Talk 23:59, November 30, 2015 (EST)
It was in C:/, and I got it from a download that said it was "Firefox 1.0 download". - Xander503 (talk) (contribs) 00:26, December 1, 2015 (EST)
Hmm...how old is your computer? What operating system and browser are you using? I believe in some older systems, files over 2 gigabytes in size would give you a negative size. ~SuperHamster Talk 00:32, December 1, 2015 (EST)
Windows 7, firefox, HP Pavilion g7. - Xander503 (talk) (contribs) 00:34, December 1, 2015 (EST)
Interesting. And the download was completed when you looked at the file? ~SuperHamster Talk 00:47, December 1, 2015 (EST)
Yes. - Xander503 (talk) (contribs) 00:48, December 1, 2015 (EST)
Where'd you try to download Firefox 1.0 from? ~SuperHamster Talk 00:53, December 1, 2015 (EST)
I dont remember. - Xander503 (talk) (contribs) 00:56, December 1, 2015 (EST)

Hey, some help?[edit]

Who is HomerJC? He seems like a bad person. - unsigned comment from Xander503 (talkcontribs)

He's not bad, but I honestly have to say that he's an underage user who isn't quite ready or have the responsibility to be a constructive user, but that attitude can always change. Mario Signature.png 20:36, December 2, 2015 (EST)

Image names[edit]

How do I think of a good image name?

--Pachisu123 (talk) 21:12, December 22, 2015 (EST)

Try to come up with a short description of the image. For example, for File:Animal Crossing 382.JPG, you might name the file "Hobb's House NL.jpg". For File:HNI 0099.JPG, you might name it "Cobb Conversation NL.jpg". Hope this helps. ~SuperHamster Talk 21:16, December 22, 2015 (EST)

RE: Official Contests article[edit]

Just finished up the article. Feel free to share it. Thanks, by the way! - Pokebub (talk) 01:12, January 3, 2016 (EST)

Sorry for the delay. Post is scheduled to go up tomorrow - nice work! ~SuperHamster Talk 23:26, January 11, 2016 (EST)

Edit History[edit]

Could you please block some revisions caused by the recent vandalism, especially the ones on my userpage. Thanks. Heidy Isabel 23:14, January 11, 2016 (EST)

Done! Thanks for tackling vandalism (again). ~SuperHamster Talk 23:22, January 11, 2016 (EST)

Question (2)[edit]

How do you know that an IP address is an open proxy? Red (talk) Red Snapper (Wild World).gif 13:20, February 16, 2016 (EST)

I did say proxy, but I think the more accurate term is VPN. I used a geolocator tool (such as this one) to find the IP's ISP. The particular IP I blocked has DigitalOcean as an ISP. DigitalOcean is a server host, which led me to believe that the server was being used as a VPN. I'm not 100% sure of my analysis, and I could be wrong, but regardless the IP did show multiple users that have vandalized from it which is what led to my block. ~SuperHamster Talk 23:07, February 16, 2016 (EST)

Rename Request[edit]

I have a rename request for you (it wasn't letting me start conversations on the forums). "Pencil dick", who I blocked for having an unacceptable username, wishes to be re-named to "Alexboy125".

Could you please do this? Thanks! Red (talk) Red Snapper (Wild World).gif 11:30, February 22, 2016 (EST)

Done, thank you! ~SuperHamster Talk 18:49, February 22, 2016 (EST)

Wikipedia[edit]

Did you know I made a wikipedia account?

--Pachisu123 (talk) 21:41, March 2, 2016 (EST)

Awesome! Glad to see it :) I've left you a welcome message there. If you ever need help or have questions, just let me know. ~SuperHamster Talk 21:42, March 2, 2016 (EST)

Actually I forgot the password to my old account, so my new account on Wikipedia is Pachisu124

--Pachisu123 (talk) 21:50, March 2, 2016 (EST)

Aha, oops! I definitely recommend linking an email to your account so that you can retrieve your password in the future. ~SuperHamster Talk 22:02, March 2, 2016 (EST)

Can I have another Personal Image?[edit]

Can I have another Personal Image? Just 1. Mario und Prinzessin Peach.jpg Princess Peach Bulborb Buffet.jpg 16:33, June 6, 2016 (EDT)

If you are full in the personal image limit, you'll have to mark one of your existing personal image for deletion. Otherwise, use an external host such as imgur. Mario Signature.png 19:07, June 6, 2016 (EDT)

I don't know why SNES a.k.a XXSuperXXNintendoXx has way more personal images, he probably did the same thing. (not deleting images.) Mario und Prinzessin Peach.jpg Princess Peach Bulborb Buffet.jpg 21:54, June 6, 2016 (EDT)

Fair point - and the policy does state that you can ask a bureaucrats (or above) for permission, which you have done. I appreciate you asking, so feel free to upload up to another 5 images. If you do find that you don't want any of your images anymore, please mark them for deletion. Thanks, ~SuperHamster Talk 00:00, June 7, 2016 (EDT)

Quick Questions[edit]

Hey Superhamster! I just had two things I needed help with: First one is a bit stupid on my behalf, but how do I mark edits done by other users as patrolled? I can see the red exclamation marks in the Recent Changes, and I have clicked on the specific edits to see if anything is there, but I couldn't see anything along the lines of "patrol edit". Second thing is, I decided that now that I'm a member of staff, I should have a more proper signature, and I have looked on the pages involving signatures, but I'm totally stumped. In case it helps, I want it to be my username all in a light pink colour. Thanks for your help! ZCJigglypuff (talk) 02:39, August 3, 2016 (EDT)

Hey there! Not a dumb question at all.
  • To mark an edit as patrolled, look at the edit difference. A link ("[Mark as patrolled]") should appear on the right side beneath the edit's header (starting with "Revision as of...").
  • To modify your signature, first head to Special:Preferences and check the box that says "Treat signature as wikitext". Prettying up your signature takes a bit of HTML/CSS knowledge. If you'd like to change the color of text, you can use the span tag. Check out the following code you can use:
[[User:ZCJigglypuff|<span style="color:#F781F3;">ZCJigglypuff</span>]]([[User talk:ZCJigglypuff|Talk]])
That code will produce this: ZCJigglypuff (Talk)
#F781F3 is the HTML color code for the shade of pink I selected. You're free to change it to whatever color you want; you can use an HTML color table (like this one) to find the codes for different colors. You can also use wikimarkup and other HTML tags to do things like bold your name, italicize it, etc.
Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any more questions. ~SuperHamster Talk 11:47, August 3, 2016 (EDT)

Thanks! Sorry about the late reply, I've been a bit busy irl, I've been marking edits as patrolled now and I'm going to make my signature ASAP. Thanks again! ZCJigglypuff (talk) 03:35, August 6, 2016 (EDT)

Dorsal Axe[edit]

Because he's active again can we restore his patroller status, he was a fm. patroller. Mario und Prinzessin Peach.jpg Princess Peach Bulborb Buffet.jpg 20:47, August 8, 2016 (EDT)

Yep, thanks for the reminder. I already asked Dorsal on their talk page on whether they'd like to be promoted again :) ~SuperHamster Talk 22:45, August 8, 2016 (EDT)

Unacceptable Username[edit]

This username is extremely long: IDon'tKnowWhatToCallMyself so please block him. Thanks! Mario und Prinzessin Peach.jpg Princess Peach Bulborb Buffet.jpg 20:03, August 18, 2016 (EDT)

Also there needs to be a Usename policy. Mario und Prinzessin Peach.jpg Princess Peach Bulborb Buffet.jpg 20:04, August 18, 2016 (EDT)
Thanks for bringing it up. I don't think that username is particularly long nor deserving of a block. Having some bullet points regarding usernames wouldn't be a bad idea for our policy, though. ~SuperHamster Talk 21:43, August 18, 2016 (EDT)
To clarify, we do mention what constitutes an unacceptable name over at our blocking policy. Red (talk) Red Snapper (Wild World).gif 09:57, August 19, 2016 (EDT)

Cross wiki weekend[edit]

I just noticed you're co-organizing the cross wiki weekend! It's an interesting idea. I'm interested to see whether Nookipedia will get any new contributors or...ummm...weird edits! :P --Red (talk)Red Snapper HHD Icon.png 14:26, September 22, 2016 (EDT)

Haha, thanks! It'll definitely be interesting to see how it turns out. If it's a success, hopefully we'll see it become an annual event :) ~SuperHamster Talk 14:31, September 22, 2016 (EDT)

Nookipedia userbox help![edit]

I had created the userbox for Snakes on a Plane and Im trying to put it on Nookipedia:Userboxes and each time I click show preview, I mess up, BTW the template is Template:UB SOAP and im trying to put it on Nookipedia userboxes in Other series part, if you can help me that will be great. Thanks! :) Mario und Prinzessin Peach.jpg Princess Peach Bulborb Buffet.jpg 18:17, September 22, 2016 (EDT)

Okay it goes here, below the Star Trek one. Mario und Prinzessin Peach.jpg Princess Peach Bulborb Buffet.jpg 16:53, September 23, 2016 (EDT)
Nevermind, I figured it out. Mario und Prinzessin Peach.jpg Princess Peach Bulborb Buffet.jpg 19:15, September 23, 2016 (EDT)
Sorry for the late reply - been a busy couple of days. Glad you figured it out! ~SuperHamster Talk 21:21, September 24, 2016 (EDT)


Staff Activity[edit]

Hey Hamster! I just wanted to quickly ask something. I've noticed a few members of our staff including Heidy, Pachisu and Mario haven't been on the site for a long time ( Pachisu has been, albeit very infrequently), but they're still marked as "Active" on the Patroller, Bureaucrat, etc type of pages. If it's alright with you, I think changing their activity status to "Inactive" or "Around" would help new members/visitors know who to ask. Sorry if this didn't make sense, I'm very tired today! ZCJigglypuff(Talk) 22:06, September 24, 2016 (EDT)

Absolutely! Feel free to update staff activity at any time at Template:Activity. Thank you! ~SuperHamster Talk 00:58, September 25, 2016 (EDT)

Bulletin boards question[edit]

Do you have difficulty viewing the forum from a mobile device? Usually, the foreground vanishes when trying to log in, leaving me with a bright blue background. I'd be interested to hear other editors' input.--Red (talk)Red Snapper HHD Icon.png 13:36, September 28, 2016 (EDT)

Template:Ping I haven't been using it on mobile too much, but I'll check it out over the next few days and see what happens! Could you let me know what device / browser you're using? ~SuperHamster Talk 19:31, September 28, 2016 (EDT)
Haha, someone has been contributing to Wikipedia too much! xD ~PoizonMushro0mPoizonMush Sig.png 23:08, September 28, 2016 (EDT)
Whoops! You got me :P ~SuperHamster Talk 06:28, September 29, 2016 (EDT)

Username[edit]

Do you consider this to be an unacceptable username? It looks like it could be an insult towards someone, but I'm on the fence about it. Red (talk)Red Snapper HHD Icon.png 06:57, October 24, 2016 (EDT)

Hey there! Sorry for the late response - been out of town the last few days. At a glance, I think it's fine, since it isn't particularly vulgar and I don't think it's aimed at anyone in this community. ~SuperHamster Talk 02:28, October 26, 2016 (EDT)

Cuss words in edits[edit]

Hey SuperHamster, I have found edits by this IP on Tom Nook as vulgar. It has a TON of profanity. Can you hide the revisions? Thanks! Mario und Prinzessin Peach.jpg Princess Peach Bulborb Buffet.jpg 18:55, November 18, 2016 (EST)

Done, thanks for pointing those out! ~SuperHamster Talk 19:21, November 18, 2016 (EST)

Inactive staff members[edit]

I just wanted to point out that we have some inactive admins and patrollers. Sky hasn't edited since November 15, 2015 (over a year ago now), while Wookiee, Heidy and Trainiax haven't done anything in a while, either. Red (talk)Red Snapper HHD Icon.png 06:26, November 19, 2016 (EST)

An annon messed with my userpage[edit]

Okay this anon vandalized my userpage and because I don't want a repeat please Semi-Protect my userpage. Thanks! Mario und Prinzessin Peach.jpg Princess Peach Bulborb Buffet.jpg 20:16, December 12, 2016 (EST)

I did this for you. BTW, we did have a discussion a while ago on the forums about possibly banning IPs from editing pages in the "User" namespace (in other words, they wouldn't be able to edit user pages). It's something I would be in support of. Red (talk)Red Snapper HHD Icon.png 11:59, December 13, 2016 (EST)
Just thought I would add that you should probably make sure you log out of your account and close any open browser tabs when you are not using the site. That anon is editing from one of the IP addresses we have on your account record, meaning that they are likely on the same network as you. This could be a case of your family playing a prank on you. --Jake 13:06, December 13, 2016 (EST)
Jake, it was a family member playing a prank. I wonder if they can have their own account so that won't happen again. Mario und Prinzessin Peach.jpg Princess Peach Bulborb Buffet.jpg 18:42, December 13, 2016 (EST)

About those accounts you blocked...[edit]

Sorry to bother you, but some of those recent inappropriate usernames are still visible on Special:BlockList, despite your best efforts to hide them. Might need to consider other methods of dealing with the problem...couldn't believe what I saw when I logged on, anyhow! :P Red (talk)Red Snapper HHD Icon.png 11:42, December 21, 2016 (EST)

Perhaps renaming them will work? Mario Signature.png 11:47, December 21, 2016 (EST)
Nice catch Red. Mario and I renamed the users - thank you to you both! ~SuperHamster Talk

Change my username[edit]

Can you change my username to Beethoven Freak?

--Pachisu123 (talk) 14:02, December 24, 2016 (EST)

Hi Pachisu123 - can do. Just a heads up, you can only change your username once per year. If you still desire the rename, let me know and I can make it happen. ~SuperHamster Talk 17:26, December 24, 2016 (EST)

Ok. Make it happen

--Pachisu123 (talk) 17:36, December 24, 2016 (EST)

Done! ~SuperHamster Talk 17:40, December 24, 2016 (EST)

Question[edit]

What does compromised account mean?

--Beethoven Freak (talk) 19:34, December 25, 2016 (EST)

It means that others have gotten access to the account; in the particular case you're referring to, the user's username was accurate. ~SuperHamster Talk 21:01, December 25, 2016 (EST)

How do you know? On the user's contributions page, there is nothing there! --Beethoven Freak (talk) 21:18, December 25, 2016 (EST)

Because I tried the password myself :) ~SuperHamster Talk 21:42, December 25, 2016 (EST)
To clarify, the user's username was "my password is ______", with the blank space being their password. ~SuperHamster Talk 21:59, December 25, 2016 (EST)

Log details removed[edit]

Why did you hide the usernames that had "My password is" in them? I don't think they are ever going to edit, like most of the new accounts created here.

--Beethoven Freak (talk) 22:04, December 25, 2016 (EST)

So no one else can access the accounts and cause disruption; it would also interfere with the IP record of the account, and it's a matter of principle that only one person should have access to every account. In hindsight I could have disabled email/talk page abilities or simply changed the password myself to really stop the accounts from being able to do anything, but I'd rather just get the disruptive usernames off the record. ~SuperHamster Talk 22:16, December 25, 2016 (EST)

Oops[edit]

Oops - I pressed the wrong button while using Special:Nuke and deleted about 50 talk pages accidentally. :o Can you help me restore some of them? Thanks! Red (talk)Red Snapper HHD Icon.png 12:07, December 26, 2016 (EST)

100px Will do :P ~SuperHamster Talk 12:19, December 26, 2016 (EST)

:P :P :P Er, yeah, seriously, I'll try to focus on normal contributions again from now on. 2016 has been a crazy year and this just caps it off! Thanks for your help anyways! :) Red (talk)Red Snapper HHD Icon.png 14:09, December 26, 2016 (EST)
Hah, no problem! Thanks for the quick fix. ~SuperHamster Talk 17:38, December 26, 2016 (EST)

Rename[edit]

Hi there! I think I'm going to want my username changed soon, but I'm worried about whether name changes are possible on the forums (and AFAIK I don't think it's ever been done before)? And if not, would I be breaking forum policy by having different names on the wiki and forums? Red (talk)Red Snapper HHD Icon.png 13:04, December 29, 2016 (EST)

Hey Red - either Jake or I can change your username on the forums. Just let either of us know when you'd like a username change and we'll take care of it! ~SuperHamster Talk 01:06, December 30, 2016 (EST)
I'd like my wiki and forum accounts to be renamed to "Drago", please! :) Red (talk)Red Snapper HHD Icon.png 12:34, December 30, 2016 (EST)
The deed has been done! ~SuperHamster Talk 12:39, December 30, 2016 (EST)
I'm going to miss the somewhat-profitable fish from Animal Crossing. Mario Signature.png 21:03, December 30, 2016 (EST)

Template Trouble[edit]

Ummm...can you help me with a problem on Happy Home Network Design Contest? The "external links" section has managed to appear inside the template and I don't know how to fix it. Thanks! Drago (talk) DragoPicACNL.png 14:58, January 5, 2017 (EST)

Fixed :) The table was missing a closing tag. ~SuperHamster Talk 15:14, January 5, 2017 (EST)
Many thanks! Drago (talk) DragoPicACNL.png 15:17, January 5, 2017 (EST)

Featured Fanart Question?[edit]

Hey there! I'm not sure if this is an okay question to ask, but I am curious about the Featured Fanart section on the Front Page. Can other Nookipedia users submit their own Animal Crossing fanart as well, or do we sumbit art from a different website? I only ask because I like the idea of a Featured Fanart section and want to help out with stuff like that. Cakey (talk) 07:34, January 13, 2017 (EST)

Hey Cakey - that's certainly an all-right question to ask :) Glad you like the new Featured Fanart section! The art is currently being curated by me (I search the web for fanart that catches my eye, and ask artists if they're interested in being featured). I wouldn't mind us having some sort of formal system where users can nominate photos - however, I'm also not so sure if I'd want an area on the wiki to critique peoples' art. What I think we could do is create a team of users to work with me on finding fanart. What do you think? If you're on our Discord server, I'm thinking we could set up a private channel to work together (alongside anyone else who may be interested) on finding fanart to feature. If you don't want to join Discord, we could also do it on our Forums. ~SuperHamster Talk 10:16, January 13, 2017 (EST)
I like the idea! I'm not on the Discord server, but I can definitely join in and help you out with finding fanart. My username on Discord is different from Nookipedia, but I hope that isn't a big deal. As for the system idea, while I do think it's a good idea, I also don't want for it to be a reflection on who's good at art and who isn't good at it either. Because of that, I am more for the idea of forming a group and look for fanart to feature. Cakey (talk) 22:02, January 13, 2017 (EST)
Perfect, sounds good to me. Feel free to send me a message whenever you join the Discord server, and I'll set up a private channel + invite you to it. You can also set a nickname for yourself on a per-server basis, so you can set yourself to appear as Cakey on the Nookipedia server. ~SuperHamster Talk 22:44, January 13, 2017 (EST)
Joined the Discord server and sent you a message. Cakey (talk) 02:04, January 14, 2017 (EST)

Question (3)[edit]

I know it's not an important issue, but I'm curious. Why is selecting a license for images not compulsory again? Drago (talk) DragoPicACNL.png 15:24, January 16, 2017 (EST)

Ah, we changed that (temporarily) to let Sunmarsh quickly upload files with the license and source information placed in the Summary field, instead of him having to choose a license from the dropdown and then going back to add the source in another edit. This should be temporary until we have a better system (such as have a new field in the upload wizard that lets uploaders place a source into the license). I don't think it should be a big problem in the meantime since we don't see too many uploads, but if it becomes a problem we can re-enable it. ~SuperHamster Talk 15:37, January 16, 2017 (EST)

Inappropriate user?[edit]

Sorry to bother you when you're probably very busy, but do you think this guy's image uploads look inappropriate? Drago (talk) DragoPicACNL.png 13:31, March 5, 2017 (EST)

Hey, thanks for reaching out. A bit dark, but I don't think they're particularly inappropriate, no. I'd draw a line at violence and/or obvious blood/gore. If you disagree, feel free to create a thread in the staff forum and get broader input. ~SuperHamster Talk 18:30, March 6, 2017 (EST)

NIWA newsletter[edit]

Another unimportant issue, but I'm again curious. Are you one of the writers of the NIWA newsletter, and if not, who writes for it? Drago (talk) DragoPicACNL.png 11:58, May 4, 2017 (EDT)

Yep! I spearheaded the project and wrote the letter alongside several other NIWA staff. If you're interested in helping out, just let me know - though a Discord account would be needed since that's where we communicate about it. ~SuperHamster Talk 12:33, May 4, 2017 (EDT)

Hi[edit]

Hey, how are things going around here? Sorry I wasn't around in a while. I'm busy with game modding, other wikis, and university. I hope everything's fine around here. :) Mario Signature.png 16:05, September 26, 2017 (EDT)

Hey Mario! Nice to hear from you :D Everything's pretty dandy, pretty chill as always as we wait for the mobile and/or Switch game. Most of the activity has been on our Discord server - feel free to join us anytime there, if that interests you. Hope school's going well along with everything else. ~SuperHamster Talk 21:29, September 26, 2017 (EDT)
Nice to see you again, Mario! I've been stomping out the bad edits mostly myself in your absence. Mamma-mia! Drago (talk) DragoPicACNL.png 07:22, September 27, 2017 (EDT)
Mama mia indeed. Thanks for that. I'm hoping there will be new information for Animal Crossing soon. :P Mario Signature.png 15:42, October 12, 2017 (EDT)
Me too - although nothing ever happens quickly with Animal Crossing! Drago (talk) DragoPicACNL.png 11:30, October 13, 2017 (EDT)

I forgot my Username.[edit]

I have an account tied to this IP Address, but I forgot the name since it is been a long time since I last was active, can you tell me the username? Thanks in advance. 216.16.174.76 18:26, April 9, 2018 (EDT)

Nevermind I figured it out. 216.16.174.76 18:47, April 9, 2018 (EDT)

A few things.[edit]

Sometimes when I browse I see coding of the website that is visible impairing my ability to edit. I think the site may need to be locked until the issue is resolved, there seems to be a glitch in the code. I also logged out and the problem persisted. As far as I know it seems to happen randomly. I will also request a name change, John Denver Fan. Also is it possible to embed YouTube videos in the userspace, when I mean userspace, I mean the user page. And what is the limit of YouTube videos on a userpage if it is possible? Mario und Prinzessin Peach.jpg Princess Peach Bulborb Buffet.jpg 19:28, April 9, 2018 (EDT)

Hi John. I've gone ahead and changed your username to John Denver Fan. Please note that you may request a name change once every six months.
Regarding the site glitch, can you provide more details so that we can diagnose the issue? Are you on a computer or a phone? What page(s) does it happen on? Can you describe the glitch? Is it an issue with the layout, or an advertisement?
As for YouTube videos, you can use Template:Youtube to embed a video anywhere. If you have any questions about how to use the template, feel free to ask. We don't have a limit on video embeds in the userspace, just make sure they're appropriate for the wiki (nothing offensive, no gore, no profanity, etc.).
Thanks, ~SuperHamster Talk 19:42, April 9, 2018 (EDT)
Thanks for the username change, regarding the glitch it happens on mobile, as I use a Wii U to edit. The glitch I found out was no advertisements are shown, unless I was promoted when I was gone idk. There is also the text was like when you are on Wikia and have adblocks on, it was as for the glitch, the ads wasn't shown anywhere, the texture glitch mainly happens in the special namespace. However as I use mobile I don't have Adblock or any of that junk. Also thanks for clearing about the YouTube stuff, I was going to put music videos from John Denver and other artists. Mario und Prinzessin Peach.jpg John Denver Fan Bulborb Buffet.jpg 19:57, April 9, 2018 (EDT)
I forgot to say something, as I have seen the YouTube Template for the first time. Do you put a url in the template to display it? Mario und Prinzessin Peach.jpg John Denver Fan Bulborb Buffet.jpg 20:00, April 9, 2018 (EDT)
Ahh, interesting, thanks for pointing this glitch out! I think I found the problem you are experiencing on mobile: on special pages, the ads sometimes appear on top of the page content. We'll take a look and try to fix this ASAP.
For the YouTube template, you put the video's ID. If you look at the URL of the YouTube video, you should see something like watch?v=asdf1234567. Whatever string that comes after the equal sign is what goes into the template (e.g. {{Youtube|asdf1234}}. ~SuperHamster Talk 20:15, April 9, 2018 (EDT)
Thanks, I'll have to create a subpage for the YouTube Videos so my userpage doesn't get cluttered. Mario und Prinzessin Peach.jpg John Denver Fan Bulborb Buffet.jpg 14:05, April 10, 2018 (EDT)

I got a question[edit]

I was going through each villager, and I notice that in the Happy Home Designer house infobox, some of the villagers have their personality included in the Type box next to its Species, like for example, Lazy Cat. But then there are some where only its species is shown. So my question is this, should the type box have both species and personality or just the species? I'm not sure which is best. Char89Charizard (talk) 14:17, April 16, 2018 (EDT)

Hmm, interesting! I'm inclined to say the more info the better, but I haven't played HHD myself - is the villager's personality relevant at all to the game? (i.e. do some villagers have different requirements for their homes based on their personalities?). ~SuperHamster Talk 00:49, April 17, 2018 (EDT)
Now that I think about it, no it's no relevant. I thought it was when I saw Bob's page. But now I think not. And you don't have Happy Home Designer? That's interesting. Because Tiffany is missing her HHD House info. I would've added it myself, but I haven't encountered her on the game yet, and I don't have her amiibo card either. But I will try to collect them all though. Char89Charizard (talk) 13:54, April 17, 2018 (EDT)

Could you change my username?[edit]

I created my account when I was much younger (seven, to be exact) and I made my username my real name. Could you change it to something like 'animalcrossing24', 'AnimalCrossing24', 'AC24', 'AnimalCrossin24' or 'animalcrossin24'? Thank you. --Freddy (talk) 14:26, May 10, 2018 (EDT)

SuperHamster isn't online, so I have done this for you so you don't have to wait. :) Drago (talk) Drago PC icon.png 14:36, May 10, 2018 (EDT)
Thanks Drago! ~SuperHamster Talk 14:40, May 10, 2018 (EDT)
Thank you! :) --AnimalCrossing24 (talk) 02:02, May 11, 2018 (EDT)

User page protection?[edit]

Just wondering why your user page (and other staff user pages for that matter) doesn't have any protection on it? Given that most of the edit history is vandalism, and you're one of the most important people here, I thought protection would be worth considering. Drago (talk) Drago PC icon.png 11:01, August 12, 2018 (EDT)

Fair point :) I've gone ahead and protected my pages. As for other staff, I suppose it's up to them. I've left a message on Vmario's page offering protection for their page as well. ~SuperHamster Talk 13:05, August 12, 2018 (EDT)
Your talk page is getting vandalized as much as your user page ever was! Unfortunately, there's nothing you can do about it! :P Drago (talk) Drago PC icon.png 13:22, August 25, 2018 (EDT)
