General update

First of all, I apologize for my recent absence. Life has taken a toll on me, and I must be able to take care of myself before I can focus on side projects. I should be around more often in the coming weeks.

I am hopeful that we will have another Christmas rush with new editors, chat members, the whole nine yards. I urge everyone to welcome newcomers to the site. Feeling welcome causes people to stick around which is exactly what we need. Remember, we were all new at one point!

The best way to keep our activity consistent is to always be working on something. A few things I think could be worked on are:

  1. Always checking into our summer survey results.
  2. Displaying Welcome amiibo card templates on appropriate pages. (Please note that furniture images are meant to be used in this template, not text! If you have any questions about its usage, do not hesitate to ask.)
  3. Uploading the furniture sprites needed for the above task.
  4. Adding information to stubs or cleaning/organizing messy pages.

Also, I'd appreciate input on our new way of displaying species templates. An updated example can be found on the eagle template, whereas a current, non-updated example can be found on the penguin template. If anyone is opposed to the updated version like myself, feel free to hold a proposal to halt the changes or offer advice on how to make it better.

Finally, I would like to give a warm thanking to everyone who sticks around; whether it be as a viewer, an editor, a chatter, a staff member. I am very grateful that we have a community, despite its current lack of flourishing. Thank you.

Happy holidays, everyone! Present (New Leaf icon)

Just want to mention that images don't seem to be displaying in the items section for the Welcome amiibo template unless I'm doing something wrong. For now, I'm adding the text as a placeholder. Also, I think the template could use a description section for the RVs.

As far as the species templates, I do think they could use a caption perhaps so that it is easy to identify a villager by either knowing their name or knowing what they look like. Not sure what others think. ~~

Do we need pages like this? Surely the categories suffice. Also gj whoever removed the "A real cow" photos - we know what the animals look like.

Do you mean the description given to the player on the bottom screen? I could easily implement that. I'd also like to try making the villager images in the species template much smaller, as well as putting their name directly below the image.

I guess we don't necessarily need the pages. I see how they can be useful, though. Run it through a proposal. And I was the one who removed the real life images. They were dumb.

Agreed, a name and photo would make things look a lot better than just one or the other.

Good to see you.

I suggest you to revise the page about Caroline.

Like I said, her nose is NOT of almost the same color as her face.

The issue is of the displayed image and NOT the final artwork and in game model.

Even her as a islander named Bliss had the same darker nose.

Hey, I made the new species template. Just thought I'd say that you can identiy who the villager is by hovering over the image. I have tried before to include a label but have failed to make it actually work. Personally I think the new template is a lot more eye-catching and colourful to look at than just plain text.

Thanks for the update. I haven't been very active either because of some personal problems, so I've only just seen this. ACNL/HHD is one of the only things keeping me sane!
