Animal Crossing City[edit]

Hey SuperHamster, I know this may be a ridiculous question to ask, but I recently joined Animal Crossing City, which was the old wiki and joined it to where I could add more info on pages and such. But what I was wondering was if it was against wiki policy to join the old wiki and still use this wiki. (If so, will I be losing my Patroller rank?) -mlnintendo97 21:31, 4 December 2012 (EST)

No, of course not :) I visit the Wikia alternative myself sometimes. The wikis are competing, each with their advantages, and most users choose one wiki over another (some users with great hostility, especially in the past). I wasn't here for the "split," so I'm not in on the drama. In the end, though, it really doesn't matter. More power to you if you contribute to both! ~SuperHamster Talk 23:00, 4 December 2012 (EST)
Good, I was worried I would have to quit one, because Taliseth (One of their admin.), from what he posted on my wall, it seem I had to quit one and stay on the other. -mlnintendo97 23:48, 4 December 2012 (EST)

Userbox Help[edit]

Hey SuperHamster, mlnintendo97 again, I need some help with my userboxes again, I seem to have a bug with it and I am trying to remove a space it created because of this. Can you help me out with it when you get the chance? - unsigned comment from mlnintendo97 (talkcontribs)

Fixed! All that was missing was a <br> tag. ~SuperHamster Talk 01:38, 15 December 2012 (EST)
Thanks! :) -mlnintendo97 21:21, 15 December 2012 (EST)

Undo Rollback?[edit]

Hey, I accidently rolled back an edit I did to K.K. Slider, can undo that for me? -mlnintendo97 15:51, 21 December 2012 (EST)

Done - for future reference, a rollback is just like any other edit, and you could have simply undone the edit yourself :) ~SuperHamster Talk 22:21, 21 December 2012 (EST)
Well, I was just unsure how to do it. :P -mlnintendo97 20:55, 23 December 2012 (EST)

Block an IP Address?[edit]

I have been patrolling several edits these past few days and this IP Address keeps making unnecessary quotes to villager pages where it mentions another villager saying for example, "Don't you think Sterling looks absolutely noble?". This IP Address has been doing this for several days straight. -mlnintendo97 14:05, 26 January 2013 (EST)

Done, I have blocked the IP for a week. I'm not sure if the quotes are accurate, but regardless, they're not representative of the characters, and I've considered their insistence on adding them as edit warring. Thanks! ~SuperHamster Talk 14:23, 26 January 2013 (EST)
It seems that vandal has returned and they are using this IP Address. -mlnintendo97 17:42, 11 February 2013 (EST)
Thanks! They have been issued a block. Great job on the reversions. ~SuperHamster Talk 00:00, 12 February 2013 (EST)
On a side note, this IP Address has been edit warring and making unnecessary comments on villager pages. -mlnintendo97 (Join Fans of Antonio today!) 19:36, 2 March 2013 (EST)
I took a look - in general, they've been adding constructive content. If any of their edits are problematic in the future, just let them know kindly on their talk page :) ~SuperHamster Talk 01:52, 5 March 2013 (EST)

Hey![edit]

You're welcome! If you would please tell me what pages need to be written, I will gladly help! I have already done stuff on Wikirby, bt I'm still a beginner. ^^; Heh heh. Thanks. Janop1 21:12, 28 January 2013 (EST)

Sure thing! Thanks for asking! Right now, with the English release of New Leaf right around the corner, our priority is to add content on the game, as you already did with your new villager articles (there's still a lot left to go!).
Other than that, if you're looking for something different, there are plenty of stubs that need expanding, and our current events page lists some other ideas for things that need done around here.
Thanks again! Feel free to ask if you have any more questions. See you around. ~SuperHamster Talk 00:38, 29 January 2013 (EST)

Thanks! I'll get on that! ^^ Janop1 08:36, 29 January 2013 (EST)

Edit an image for me?[edit]

Hey SH, I know I have been asking a lot of you lately, but if you can make the black coloring that is outside the gray outline invisible for me on this image whenever you get the chance? I don't have the proper software to do it myself. Anytime will be fine with me, after all, this will be only appearing on my userpage. (Can I also use this as a signature here on the wiki later on as well?) -mlnintendo97 00:54, 6 February 2013 (EST)

Sure, I'd be happy to :) I can't do that right now (I'm about to head to school), but I'll do it as soon as I get a chance. As for your signature, images can be used for signatures as long as they don't disrupt line spacing (in other words, it has to fit within a line of text). ~SuperHamster Talk 09:48, 6 February 2013 (EST)
Great, thanks for doing it for me! As for the image as a signature, it fits perfectly with it almost going out of the line spacing. Thanks again! :D -mlnintendo97 17:25, 6 February 2013 (EST)
Done. For future reference, the program I use to create transparencies is IrfanView. It's a very simple program, but it can do a lot of nifty things. As for fitting it in your signature, it does take up multiple lines - a line of text is roughly 12 pixels, so it shouldn't be more than that. A resize would take care of that, though. ~SuperHamster Talk 21:04, 6 February 2013 (EST)

Signature Image Help[edit]

I have been working on my image for my signature, which is the same image which I had you help me out with before, just smaller and at 12px as you suggested, and was wondering how do you add linking to pages onto it. Also, while I'm at it, is there any limit to how much text you can have to a signature and can I move image pages? (I meant to have a space between the dash and "Mlnintendo97") -mlnintendo97 (Join Fans of Antonio today!) 19:47, 28 February 2013 (EST)

To add a link to an image, use the following code and replace 'LOCATION' with the page name: [[File:Example.png|link=LOCATION]]
As for a limit, yep, there is a character limit you'll eventually run into when writing your signature in the box - it'll stop letting you type when you hit it.
And as for moving images, only administrators and above can do so. In the future, you can simply request one of us on our talk pages. I've gone ahead and moved it for you =) ~SuperHamster Talk 23:41, 28 February 2013 (EST)
Thanks for the help! As you clearly can tell, I pretty much know how to work most of the wikitext coding, but I haven't really experimented much with images. Thanks for help once again! -mlnintendo97 (Join Fans of Antonio today!) 18:56, 1 March 2013 (EST)
Hey Kevin, I have been working out my Signature to include an image into it, I'm currently and was wondering if it looks fit to be a final signature for me. -mlnintendo97(Join Fans of Antonio today!) 19:57, 18 March 2013 (EDT)
Looks great! I like it. Not that it's against the rules or anything, but I'd personally remove the link to the Antonio fanpage - it reads like an advertisement that will be seen again and again by the same users, when the main purpose of a signature is to simply identify you. Not a huge deal though - in the end, it's totally up to you. ~SuperHamster Talk 23:59, 18 March 2013 (EDT)
I'll be sure to fix it as soon as I'm done. Thanks for your input as I was unsure if the image was the proper size or not. -mlnintendo97 (Join Fans of Antonio today!) 22:50, 19 March 2013 (EDT)

Help with my Userpage[edit]

Hey. I need help with my userpage. I don't want it to be all crammed up please help me. Pokebub 23:41, 2 April 2013 (EDT)

Sure - take a look at this edit I made. Userboxes are funky in the way they align on pages. To make sure page sections don't overlap like they did before, you can use the {{Clear}} template, which will make sure that each section is placed below the previous one, instead of jamming them all together. If you need anything else, just holler :) ~SuperHamster Talk 23:49, 2 April 2013 (EDT)

Thanks. Pokebub 23:51, 2 April 2013 (EDT)

Wiki Cryptids[edit]

Hey. What is a Wiki Cryptid? I saw the userbox for it ,but what is it. Pokebub 16:23, 3 April 2013 (EDT)

A while ago, users could characterize themselves as certain "WikiFauna". For example, a WikiFairy would be someone who beautifies the wiki, and the WikiCrptid would be someone who acts mysteriously. These pretty much died out though. ~SuperHamster Talk 19:36, 4 April 2013 (EDT)

Oh ok. So a wiki cryptid is someone who acts mysteriously in a wiki. Does this count for forum websites? Pokebub 20:41, 4 April 2013 (EDT)

Eh, not really, since it's separate from the wiki. Though as I said, no one really uses them anymore on Nookipedia. ~SuperHamster Talk 23:15, 4 April 2013 (EDT)
Ok Pokebub 23:31, 4 April 2013 (EDT)

NES Game Templates and 3DS Friend Codes[edit]

I've been working on NES Games here on Nookipedia and I noticed that a lot of the NES Games are missing their NES Game Template so I added them and it took me almost an hour. By the way do you have a 3DS? If you do, do you want my friend code? Pokebub 20:29, 3 April 2013 (EDT)

Nice work ;) I do, I'll get you the code ASAP. ~SuperHamster Talk 19:36, 4 April 2013 (EDT)

Ok Pokebub 20:38, 4 April 2013 (EDT)

So are you gonna give it to me? Pokebub 22:05, 5 April 2013 (EDT)

Totaka's Song[edit]

Hey SuperHamster. I made an article based on Totaka's Song. Can you put it in the song template? Pokebub 21:33, 4 April 2013 (EDT)

To add anything to a template, you can simply edit it yourself, assuming it isn't protected. In this case, you'd edit the template at Template:PrCo. I've gone ahead and added it in. ~SuperHamster Talk 23:30, 4 April 2013 (EDT)
Thanks and ok Pokebub 23:33, 4 April 2013 (EDT)

NOTICE[edit]

I will soon open a shop in my userpage. To buy stuff I will Give you a random Animal Crossing question and you earn 100 coins if you do it right. Pokebub 22:13, 11 April 2013 (EDT)

Wiki News[edit]

Hey Kevin, I was wondering if as a Patroller, I have proper permissions to edit the Wiki News template. I was asking this as I noticed we are WAY overdue to update it. I was thinking of something like promoting people to edit pages with missing Animal Crossing: New Leaf info. -mlnintendo97 21:07, 15 April 2013 (EDT)

Sure! You can definitely update the news whenever needed, though traditionally, the wiki news basically covers user promotions and major changes, and there haven't been any for a few months. Regarding promoting editing, I've actually been thinking of bigger ways to drive up activity for the past few weeks - you've inspired me to finally make a thread on the forums to talk about it. We can discuss plans there :) Thanks! ~SuperHamster Talk 21:50, 15 April 2013 (EDT)

Inactive Patrollers[edit]

Hey SH, I lately have been concerned about our Staff, with how much inactivity there is, and I noticed just today while going through it at about 1/4 have nor been active since 2010 and 2011. Do you think there might be a possibility that those staff members might be removed? -mlnintendo97 22:23, 16 April 2013 (EDT)

Fair point - I'll compile a list as soon as I have time of staff to be demoted. Thanks, ~SuperHamster Talk 23:38, 16 April 2013 (EDT)
Yeah, I'm really sorry for my inactiveness lately. I've been busy with soccer, musical, honors choir, band, tutors, voice lessons, and homework. Also, I've been a depressed and suicidal mess lately, so I really apologize for my inactiveness and am gonna try to pick it up a bit. --XXSuperXXNintendoXx 22:42, 23 April 2013 (EDT)
That's totally understandable! No reason to apologize, the wiki should in no way be a priority: real life comes first. Editing should just be a fun hobby to do when you have time ;) When talking about demoting inactive members, we're talking about users who haven't been seen since 2 years ago.
Hope everything clears up - if you ever need to talk, feel free to talk to me (in private on Skype if you wish), or mlnintendo97, who left some great advice on your talk page I strongly recommend you consider. Hang in there - Cheers, ~SuperHamster Talk 01:17, 24 April 2013 (EDT)

Help Patrol Edits[edit]

Hey, whenever you get the chance, can you help me patrol the wiki as Miku51, the only other active patroller who marks edits as patrolled, will be leaving us in a few days. -mlnintendo97 20:49, 21 April 2013 (EDT)

Sounds good, I'll be happy to help =) Thanks for the patrolling so far. I'll see about contacted Jake about implementing a new user group for users who aren't staff, but whose edits can definitely be auto-patrolled, to ease the load on us. ~SuperHamster Talk 01:09, 22 April 2013 (EDT)

Sky - Hiatus[edit]

Hey Kevin, I was wondering if you knew the reason behind Sky's hiatus. He has been on hiatus since before I became a Patroller. -mlnintendo97 19:28, 30 April 2013 (EDT)

I don't recall any particular reasoning, other than the need for a well-deserved break. Hopefully Sky will be back soon for New Leaf =) ~SuperHamster Talk 23:26, 30 April 2013 (EDT)


Thanks![edit]

Hi Kevin! Thanks for the welcome! Some NA players have recently received New Leaf early to give their thoughts on the game before it's released (I'm not one of those people, unfortunately :p), so I've been scouring the web and updating some information, such as some of the translated names. I hope to be of help!

Cevan 15:54, 7 May 2013 (EDT)

Awesome, thanks so much! Any updates on New Leaf are great. We'll hopefully be as up to date as we can be before the game even releases. ~SuperHamster Talk 15:56, 7 May 2013 (EDT)

Wiki glitches[edit]

Yesterday, Nookipedia wasn't working, so it took me to the "404 Page Not Found" page. Today Nookipedia is taking longer time than usual to load pages. Just telling u. Pokebub

Hey there - thanks for the heads up on the slowness. When the site came back up earlier today, I did clear the server's cache, which may have been a cause for slowness as the cache was being rebuilt. Nookipedia seems to be as fast as usual for me now though, so hopefully speeds should be back to normal for you soon, if not now. Cheers, ~SuperHamster Talk 00:54, 11 May 2013 (EDT)

Username Change?[edit]

Hey, there. I've been a member on this site for a week or so, and i've made a couple of edits. I have been using this site for years, though.

I'm not even entirely sure i'm supposed to be doing this here, so i'm sorry if i do something wrong, but you ARE staff here, right? I was wondering if there was anyway to change my username on here, and i thought that an important member here could do that, being as i can't find anywhere where i can change it myself.

I'm not even sure why i put in the username i have now. I've stopped using that username for years. The only thing i can think of happening is me creating an account years ago and never using it or something. - unsigned comment from K-Luigi (talkcontribs)

Glad to hear you're a long time reader! =) And yep, I am a staff member here. Only Bureaucrats and Directors are able to rename users. User re-naming is rare, though, so there's no formal request process - users just ask the staff, so you came to the right place. What would you like your account re-named to? ~SuperHamster Talk 21:59, 23 May 2013 (EDT)

I would like my account to be renamed from 'K-Luigi' to 'Kreuniclus'.

Done - also, please remember to sign your talk page posts with four tildes (~~~~) in the future =) ~SuperHamster Talk 01:03, 25 May 2013 (EDT)

Naming[edit]

Hi Super Hamster. I recently uploaded an image and i want to know if it's spelled: Arora or Aroura. Reply on my talk page. Pokebub 22:38, 23 May 2013 (EDT)

K, thx. Pokebub 23:39, 23 May 2013 (EDT)

Hello.[edit]

Hello,

If you remember me, I was an editor here way back in 2012. I became inactive for a while due to some problems, but now I decided to come back and help you guys in this wiki. Like last time, I would concentrate mostly on images. If you need any help in any page, then feel free to inform me :).

Thank you, Wolfgang 11:40, 11 June 2013 (EDT)

Hey Wolfgang, I remember you indeed - hope everything got sorted out, and it's great to have you back! Right now, the main focus is just expanding coverage of New Leaf content, so have at it. I'm sure you'll find plenty to do around here :) Thanks! ~SuperHamster Talk 11:43, 11 June 2013 (EDT)

Foreign Names[edit]

Hey, I just created a foreignname template that is borrowed from Pikipedia. Over at Metroid Wiki and Super Mario Wiki, I've been adding foreign names to a lot of the articles. I am experienced in adding foreign names. I just wanted to get your OK on the project. --Wookiee123 02:42, 15 June 2013 (EDT)

Hey Wookiee - I assume those names are from the various language translations of New Leaf? If so, that's a great idea - go for it! Thanks, ~SuperHamster Talk 10:42, 15 June 2013 (EDT)
Yeah, the foreign names include the translations of the names of the villagers as well as collectible fish, bugs, items, etc. Thanks! --Wookiee123 03:22, 16 June 2013 (EDT)

Nookipedia Chat[edit]

Hi SH, I wanted to know if you could allow me to create a Nookipedia Xat Chat? Reply.

  • Xat chat website: [1]

Pokebub 21:02, 16 June 2013 (EDT)

Hrm...you could, but it would not be in any way official for the time being, due to a lack of staff member participation and moderation (for now). If you and some other editors want to participate in a xat room to discuss Animal Crossing, though, you're more than welcome to :)
Right now, if we were to create an official chat group, it would most likely be on Skype, due to its popularity and simplicity. In the time being, however, our forums serve that purpose well, due to a small and concentrated group of editors :) ~SuperHamster Talk 23:00, 16 June 2013 (EDT)

New villager personalities[edit]

Hey, I need a source for the new villager personalities. Prima guide doesn't have it, but that book thinks that Naomi is Yoko and Queenie is an octopus... Super (duh...)AlpacaDoggie Mask.gif 01:26, 17 June 2013 (EDT)

Uggh. Or maybe Prima knows more than we think...Queenie might be an octopus alien in disguise...
Anyway, I haven't seen any complete list/source of all the personality information. So far for articles I've created, I've either googled around to see if I could find anything (sometimes on forums or other game guides); otherwise, I've simply set the personality to unknown for now. ~SuperHamster Talk 01:37, 17 June 2013 (EDT)

Animal Crossing Wikia[edit]

Hello,

I'm part of few wikis in Wikia and noticed that Animal Crossing Wiki over there is growing and many users are cleaning it up. Why don't yuo guys suggest them a merge with providing them with whatever they need? Having two Animal Crossing Wikis is not cool, plus that wikia is the one all users directly get to due google search. Is there anything you'll do about it?

Thank you, Wolfgang 03:21, 18 June 2013 (EDT)

Funny you mention that - time for a history lesson :)
A few years ago, before I was here, Wikia started to make changes that angered its users. They implemented and forced new layout changes that many argue made Wikia less user-friendly. Among that were complaints about the many ads, and Wikia's rigorous for-profit model that took control away from the Wikias themselves. And so, many users from the Animal Crossing Wikia decided to leave and create their own independent wiki. The Animal Crossing Wikia was merged into Jake's small Nookipedia, and from there, the wikis forked off in their own direction.
And so started NIWA, the Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance. It's an alliance of Nintendo wikis, including Nookipedia, who are independent in control. Basically, the argument is that being hosted on Wikia, or any other for-profit wiki farm, isn't in the best interest of the readers. By being independent, we can control our own wiki, and do whats best for our readers, and not for profit. When we want a layout change, we can discuss it on our forums, rather than have Wikia control that themselves. Basically, a merge is out of the question because of this.
In the end, the fact that two strong Animal Crossing Wikis exist is cool, as I see it. It gives the readers a choice. Each one has its advantages. Wikia has the strong and powerful userbase, while we have the advantages of being independent. Both sides have great editors. While they potentially do get more views, we are also currently getting a strong 100,000 views per day. Wikia tends to come in first on Google searches, but we often are close second or third. Both wikis also create competition for each other - each wiki wants to be on top, so both wikis try their best to be the best they can be.
So yep. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask :) ~SuperHamster Talk 08:01, 18 June 2013 (EDT)
