==============================================================================
II. Introduction and Legal Mumbo Jumbo
==============================================================================

Well, this is my first attempt at a FAQ.  So I decided to do it on everyone's
guilty little pleasure, Animal Crossing. :o)  I am on the trading board a lot
and it can get kind of crazy because some people are new to trading, and do
not know some of the basics.  This is a FAQ to try and change that.  I hope
this FAQ will help you along the way in this greatly addicting game.  And
hopefully help you get some of those items you need to finish your house!
Good Luck and Happy Trading!!

Now the Legal goodness!  This FAQ is the intellectual property of... ME! So
don't rip me off, please.  At the moment Gamefaqs is the only site that can
use this FAQ.  So if you this little baby floating around the web somewhere
else.  Please contact me at wurkerant@aol.com



==============================================================================
III. Exactly how do I trade?
==============================================================================

Trading in Animal Crossing is simple, fun, and addicting!  All you need to do
is have a tradable item in your inventory and approach good Ole Tom Nook.
(Will this Raccoon's abilities ever cease?)  You talk to him and first select
the option "Other Things".  Then from this screen select "Hear Code". Nook
will then ask you to enter the town name and character name of the person
you are sending the item to.  Tom will then give you a two line password.
Each line contains 14 characters of random numbers and letters. You tell
the person you are trading with this code, and in turn they will go to Nook
and choose the option "Say Code". Input your code and the item will be theirs!

I will take you on a simulated trade now.

Say you want to give Billy in Groovy an Orange.

-First you must have an Orange in your inventory, now talk to Nook.

-Choose "Other Things", then choose "Hear Code"

-Nook will now ask you to input the town and character name.

-So you would type Groovy *enter* Billy *enter*
(***NOTE*** The codes are case/space sensitive! So be sure that you have
   the information written down correctly!)

-Nook will ask you to confirm the town and character name. Say yes.

-Then he will ask you to pick which item you want to trade. So pick the
     Orange from your inventory screen and select OK.

-He will ask something like "So you want me to send Billy in Groovy an
     Orange? Is this correct?"  If it is correct say yes.

-Nook Will now give you the password and it will look something like this...

      P%ozIbMVFC5gVG
      %kjm4qYQhlR53U

-Now be sure to write this down ***EXACTLY*** the way it appears! Paying
    close attention to capital and lowercase letters.  Also be sure to notice
    the difference between capital i's and lowercase L's (More on this later.)

-All that is left to do is you to E-mail, IM, post, call, send smoke signal,
    use morse code, or just flat out tell the Person that code, and they will
    have the item! In this example Billy would have an Orange! Yum!

OK, you have a code and are wondering what to do with it? Easy! All you have
to do is, once you get a code, go to Nook.  Choose "Other Things" Now you
pick "Say Code".  He will then ask you to input your code.  Be sure to enter
it EXACTLY as you see it.  If entered correctly, then Nook will say

     "A (item name here) has just arrived for you!"

Trading is just that simple!!!


==============================================================================
IV. Some Online Trading Etiquette and Tips
==============================================================================

That's right! Be sure to keep those pinkies out! ;o)

    Since I believe that a majority of Animal Crossing trading is done
    online, I thought I would post some useful "Etiquette" tips.

1.  Try to remember that traders have lifes outside of Animal Crossing, and
    It is not always easy to get codes.  So be calm and cool. If a few days
    have past, then e-mail that person a reminder.  Always try to work things
    out before getting mad.  However, if you do use the Animal Crossing
    Trading Board here on Gamefaqs, there is a topic on it called "The Bad
    Trader topic". You may want to look at that first, if you trade on that
    board. That way you can get an idea of who is a Cheat and who is Honest.

2.  Always try to post codes in a readable fashion. So it is easier for the
    person to understand the code.  For example this is how I post codes.

                  P % o z I b M V F C 5 g V G
                  % k j m 4 q Y Q h l R 5 3 U

    Now, do not get me wrong! You can post a code anyway you want.  I just
    always use this method to avoid confusion.

3.  I vs. l  These two letters are commonly mistaken. A capital i vs. a
    lowercase L.  So pay close attenion if one of these happen to appear
    in one of your codes.  Also when posting, you may want to clarify those
    characters.  I'll use my own method as an example again.

                  P % o z (cap i) b M V F C 5 g V G
                  % k j m 4 q Y Q h (low L) R 5 3 U

    Once again. You can clarify your code anyway you want to! This is just my
    chosen method.  But always try to clarify I's and l's

4.  Notepad.  Good ole notepad! If you are having a problem with a code. Just
    Copy and paste it to notepad.  The default font in notepad is usually
    easier to determine I's and l's in. So if you get stumped. Use Notepad!

5.  Number One and Zero.  In trading codes, the number One "1" and Zero "0"
    DO NOT appear.  So all the O's you see are Capital o's.  And any l is
    a lowercase L.  NOTE, some UC's contain 1's in them, but I have NEVER
    seen a trading code contain one. Also according to the pamphlets in the
    Animal Crossing E-reader cards, codes will NEVER use a One or Zero.

6.  K's.  This is probably more of a personal problem for me. :o) But
    sometimes I confuse my k's and K's.  That is, when I write them down, and
    by the time I get them to the computer I sometimes cannot tell if it is
    capital or lowercase! (I guess I should have better handwriting! ;o)
    Anyway I usually try to exaggerate my k's and K's.  Keeps things
    running smoothly.  :o)
    A friend of mine on the AOL message board (EbayAholic12Step) ;o) Offers
    this advice.  When dealing with letters that are easy to mistake for
    capital or lowercase.  Underline all of your capital letters. Just as
    simple as that! :o)

7.  Enjoy trading! Remember it is just a game! If you do get ripped off, sadly
    it does happen.  Don't hold a grudge! Don't slash anyone's tires over a
    bad trade! Just move on and don't trade with that person again. It makes
    the world a better place! :o)

8.  A common mistake is switching town and character name.  Now, for whatever
    crazy reason Nook asks for the TOWN name first.  Not CHARACTER name.
    So always make sure that you enter the TOWN name FIRST!

9.  You never have to ask for the same item twice! Just hang on to those
    codes!  You can re-enter codes to get as many of the item that you want!
    A nice way of keeping codes is on www.accentral.net.  They have a save
    code feature for members.  Or you know, you can always use good ole
    notepad! (I like my notepad can't you tell? ;o)

10. Well, this one here is perhaps my biggest pet peeve of trading. And that
    of course is trying to trade with a UC.  Now how cheap is that?  If you
    enter into a trade with someone, make sure you have the item!  Because
    people trade for a reason!  If they wanted to use a UC don't you think
    that they would have done that instead of asking for a trade? Grrr....
    So in short, just be fair!

11. You can't trade items that you get from a UC.  Nook just isn't having
    any of that! ;o)  However, if you must use UC's then you can re-order
    that item form your catalog and trade that one... You cheater! J/K! :o)

12. Always be wary of someone trying to slip you a UC. (If you don't mind
    using UC's then read no further)  However, there have been reports of
    UC's crashing people's games, or worse yet... corrupting your save game
    data.  So I would use caution when using UC's  If you are not sure if
    someone gave you a UC in a trade you can check any number of FAQs or
    www.accentral.net for UC's.  UC's are fairly easy to notice though.
    They usually spell out a small phrase.

V. List of Known Non-Tradable items
==============================================================================

Ahh... Why I created this FAQ in the first place.  There isn't a great list of
  The Non-tradable items.  Here is the best I can come up with.  If you know
  of an item that should or should not be on this list.  PLEASE, E-mail and
  let me know! I will give you the credit you deserve! Be sure to title your
  E-mail something like AC Non-Tradable item FAQ. So I won't delete it!

    *My E-mail is*     wurkerant@aol.com

  You could IM/AIM me, but I would really prefer an E-mail.


      Anyway.... On with our Really Big Show!

First I'll give just a brief overview of what can't be traded. Then the list
  really starts after that! I think I got them all, but like I said before,
  E-mail me if you see something wrong!
