Frequently asked questions about CatalogScanner

Why is the bot not responding to my tweet?

Twitter API no longer allows the bot to run. From now on you need to use the Discord bot. See more info here.

What about item variants/colors?

Unfortunately, the bot cannot extract variation data from the catalog video. Various websites handle the import differently; some have you pick the variant for each item when importing, others have the concept of undefined variation.

How do I use the Nookazon import?

Nookazon does not yet support direct integration, but you can import your items manually. To access it, go to your profile, then click on the "Catalog" section and then on "Import". Lastly, paste the list you received from @CatalogScanner in the textbox and import.

Currently, it only supports English, but CatalogScanner can help you translate. Simply add ?locale=en-us at the end of your URL to get your items in English.

Why are some items missing?

First, check if the items are missing in the original results page. If so, send an e-mail or tweet with the link and the name of a few missing items.

If the items are in the original results page but are missing after import, then you should contact the author of the site or app you are trying to import into.

Can you add integration with website [XYZ]?

If there's another website that you use for tracking your Animal Crossing items, let me know and I'll try to contact them to see if they're interested!

Can you add feature [XYZ]?

I'm open for suggestions and feedbacks. In terms of scanners, I'm currently working on adding support for the music list, as well as the home storage. If you'd like any other feature for the bot or the website, let me know.
