Welcome to Nookipedia, Will1982!

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

Image sizes[edit]

Hey Will - just a heads up, there is no need to replace higher-quality PNGs with JPGs in order to save space, even if the JPGs are of only slightly worse quality to the naked eye. It's a good thought, but we're not tight on memory, and a size difference of a few dozen KBs isn't much in regards to load time. Ideally we'd want to provide the highest quality images possible for readers, as our images can often serve as an image repository. ~SuperHamster Talk 01:10, 21 June 2013 (EDT)

OK, thanks! Will1982 11:05, 21 June 2013 (EDT)

No prob! Keep up the good work :)

Answer[edit]

Hey Will - just a copy of the quick answer I gave to your question about copied Wikipedia content:

"We actually have a template to use for that purpose, which goes at the bottom of the article: Template:Wikipedia. There are a couple of articles it's used on. Ideally, though, it is best to create original content for the sake of consistency and simplicity, among other reasons. Otherwise, yep, copied content with a compatible license could be attributed with a footnote."
