oh and what does it mean when it says "5. Do not edit another user's page." in the Animal Crossing Wiki: Rules page? Is it talking about a page someone created about a topic in Animal Crossing or someone's profile page?
Like what Robyn said, you can only edit pages if they have that guestbook section. Most people have that section on their profile like HOA and me.
You can only edit the guestbook section though any other editing to the page will be undone. The exception is if the user allows you to edit that page (like how I was allowed to create a page for Yuno).
I'm pretty sure a regular user can't edit or delete a blog post/reply, forum, message wall post/comment, and discussion. If they created a userpage like User:Emilysara/To-do list and they allow people to edit it then that is perfectly fine! If they don't want users editing it then don't.
If you have questions feel free to message them and if they allow it, go at it (and maybe give them a bump about announcing it or making the consent like right up in your biz just sayin').
Short & Sweet: If User A wants peeps to edit it, edit it.
If User A doesn't want peeps to edit it, DON'T EDIT IT.
>o< I'm so new here and I really want to help and edit the Animal Crossing Craft orders page since nothing is there but I'm thinking that the name should be changed to Re-Tail on the Road (I can't change the article title but if I can then I'm not sure how) because the main source of making craft orders is from the mobile craft workshop Re-Tail on the Road owned by Reese and Cyrus and the name Re-Tail on the Road is stated in the Pocket Camp tutorial shown in this video here at the time 11:30 in the video. I just joined hours ago so I don't know much about Wikia ><;; oh! I also read the Rules, Style, and Neutrality pages as well ^^
I noticed you've done a pretty large amount of rollbacks on my edits recently. I'm not entirely sure why certain things were getting moved around when I edited certain pages. It all looked fine on my end in source mode, preview mode, and after posting, but it shows on your rollbacks as being very different. I honestly don't know the source of that issue, but I will continue to look out for it and be careful with reviewing my edits.
The "|nameother = unknown" line of text is a format I picked up when looking at other pages on this wiki. If it's not the standard, then it should be fixed, but I didn't know because of how widespread it was that it's an issue. I've had people who have been doing this much longer than I have adjusting my edits and never mentioning or touching that line when I reformat it.
I do apologize for editing a picture's link; I was making silly mistakes by that point. However, I would like to note that "sea shell" and "seashell" are interchangeable. I can't seem to find a place where a definitive answer is given for which is more correct. If you have a definitive source, that'd be great. The Shell page redirects from both forms of the word, though, and if you try looking it up then the suggestion is a separate word. "Seashell" also redirects to "sea shell" before redirecting to shell.
I also apologize for mixing up some things in trying to expand Carlo and Beppe's pages. They are very bare and I made some errors in expanding them, but was a full rollback really necessary? I could've gone back and fixed it to match the correct format in mere seconds if asked. There are mistakes in the thing rolled back to anyways, which is why I made some of the mistakes I did. "He is the tallest blackbirds" is obviously misleading, especially since it's the only mention of them as blackbirds, and blackbirds isn't a species in-game.

I haven't rollbacked all your edits mostly undoing some edits or changing it up in the undo screen. This edit I just undid because adding italics to "unknown" and then incorrectly spelling "buys" is pretty minuscule edit that I just decided to undo. Some edits I feel were really repetitive and the sentences didn't sound "professional".
On the word(s) "seashell" vs. "sea shell", if you google sea shell you will find that google with ask you to change it, and dictionaries will send you to the word "seashell". Kinda like how the words "can not" vs. "cannot", even though people use can not it is more grammatically correct to use "cannot" vs. "can not". I created redirects to "sea shell" and "seashell" for those who type in those words to be linked to the right page. However, we try to keep uniformity and professionalism here. Either seashell or shell is fine, but I believe shell is the best way to link the shell page (I mean it is the name of the page).
The brothers are blackbirds and you are right that we don't have a species specially for blackbirds, however, this might be a special case like Dr. Shrunk because they aren't like the birds in Animal Crossing. The brothers all have different shapes and sizes compared to the birds. If you believe birds is a general term, then you might wonder why we have a page for Ostrich, Chicken, Duck, Penguin. Most special characters get their own species page and I believe the brothers deserve one.
If you have anymore questions feel free to ask! Some of your edits were generality great and lovely to have! Don't see this as an attack from a fellow wiki user! I only want to help steer you in the right direction! (Believe me my early days were full of undoings and rollbacks from fellow wiki users)! Don't be afraid to show your opinion it is always great to have another voice (really helps us improve :D)!
I understand it's not all my edits, it was just a very large amount. I know that it's a small edit to add italics, or to change a word (incorrectly, which I apologize for), but edit size shouldn't matter when it comes to fixing or formatting wiki pages. if a page is so well done taht all it needs is a "small edit" then should we never do it simply because it's quick and easy? The logic there seems counterproductive. Also, could you give an example of what's "repetitive" in my edits? The times that you mentioned that, it was me trying to give a better sentence structure. I don't see how either of the times that was mentioned had unnecessary or repetititve edits. In general, the sentences never sounded "professional" in the first place, being of little substance and sometimes not even considered a sentence, which is why I was editing them. It's also why I question the rollback into a version that's got less information and still has mistakes in it.
I do see the Google thing now that you mention it, but the dictionaries I checked always had the word you look up on top with a different form of the word underneath, both of which were treated equally on the pages ( i.e. "Sea shell or seashell" and vice versa). It was never that one was definitive, just that it was picking up on which one you used to search and noting that there's another way people can search for it.
I suppose your logic does make sense with birds, but I still don't see how we can be sure they're blackbirds. Just because they are a black bird doesn't mean that they are in the blackbird genus. Regardless, they are worthy of their own page for the creature that they are.
Thank you for the compliment. I know you're just doing your job here and mean no malice. I'm simply questioning it so I can better understand for the future, and possibly improve on the wiki as a whole. Having a general consensus on the way of doing things is great and I'm still learning so thank you for being patient. Souleaterevans626 (talk) 07:26, November 14, 2017 (UTC)
I feel as though the readers don't need a constant reminder that Beppe is a painter, Giovanni is the boss, and Carlo is the mechanic and also the constant reminder that they are all co-workers. Something like...
Could be more acceptable but there is still that sense of repetition that may/may not be able to fix. I just think that readers don't need a constant reminder that Beppe is the painter, Giovanni is the boss, and Carlo is the mechanic.
Sea Shell or Seashell, in all, I believe you should just link it to the page Shell because the page is named Shell. Pocket Camp official calls them "Shells" according to this screenshot I got from Pocket Camp.
Might get on to creating that species page until now that will be on my hold list....(for now).
Thanks for the feedback! It means a lot! Hey, I learned some new things from this and hopefully you learned something new too! If you have anymore questions feel free to reply or send me another message! Probably going to bed after this message so I won't be replying so quick after this message. Still don't be afraid to reply or send me a message! :)
Hm, I guess you're right. I hadn't realized how close those were. I originally did it because we do the same thing on character pages for animals like Mabel, Sable, and Labelle, but it's less noticeable because their pages are so long. Labelle and Mabel are brought up more than a few times on Mabel's page, so that was the thought process on my end with those three. I guess it all sounds like repetition regardless though, so I'll just leave those pages alone for now.
For the "sea shell" or "seashell" thing, I'll take your advice. In future edits, I'll shorten both the link and the visual text to Shell to make it more cohesive.
The species page can always wait. It's a species we don't have a lot of information on right now, so waiting might actually be beneficial. We'd have less stub-like pages in the Pocket Camp section that way anyways.
I learned plenty as well. Thanks again for your time. I'll leave you to your edits now.
Hello and first off thank you for your kind words about my editing. It was really sweet and I do try my best.
In regards to your edits, I completely understand where you're coming from. Why I changed it is because only the New Leaf characters have that "First appeared" part on their pages. Every other Villager has the "In the Animal Crossing Series" part. I guess to make it simpiliar, all the New Leaf Villagers have now also appeared in HHD, so they're not new anymore and have appeared in more than one game, so I thought it was appropriate to put that they are in the Animal Crossing Series. Again none of the other Villagers state what their first game appearnce was, just the New Leaf ones. but since they've appeared in HHD, I thought it was okay that their pages match those other villager pages to have a sense of organization.
I won't undo your edits, but I hope you understand where I'm coming from. Thank you!
That makes sense! I do know that some villagers do have that "Animal Crossing series" phase like Apollo, and others just have nothing of the sort like Boris. New Leaf characters are different mainly because a lot of wiki editors have been editing those type of pages, so more information is added instead of characters who just appear in one game or the older AC games. Personally I would like WW and older characters to have that "first appearance" phrase cause it less vague than "....came from Animal Crossing series". In all, New Leaf characters are in a sense have updated information and get editors updating or adding stuff all the time. While older characters usually just have the general phrase.
Also some villagers have been around since the beginning so I think that phrase suits them. Just sayin'.
Thanks for your opinion! It always helps the wiki to have user feedback! ~Emilysara (Questions?)
AH! I see! It must be because we made the Star Signs page before amiibo cards, and used internet sources like http://www.astrology-zodiac-signs.com/zodiac-signs/gemini/. That might be the reason that the dates were so messed up. I have checked all the star signs and none of them have that problem except Gemini and Cancer, so that is weird. Thanks for letting me know! I will fix it immediately!
