Frequently asked questions about CatalogScanner

Why is the bot not responding to my tweet?

The bot usually replies in under 5 minutes. If you don't get a quick response, first make sure your profile is not set to protected, if so the bot will not see your tweets. You'll need to repost your video after changing your profile to public.

Next up, make sure you typed @CatalogScanner correctly in your tweet (clicking the tag should take you to the bot's profile). Twitter also sometimes marks the response as "spam" and will hide it; You can try going directly to the bot's profile and look under "Tweets & Replies" to find the response.

Otherwise, you can always quote tweet the original and tag @CatalogScanner, or simply repost the video to try again.

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.

I don't have a Twitter account, what can I do?

Unfortunately, the bot only works with Twitter right now. There's also no other easy way to extract your videos from your Switch.

It's fairly simple to make a dummy Twitter account for your Switch, allowing you to quickly get screenshots and videos out without messing with SD cards.

Can you add integration with website X?

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 Y?

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.
