    Can anyone confirm if changing your islander's name will get you banned?
    Also would like to know if learning all DIY Recipes and completing the catalog using the respective options in NHSE is safe or not.

    I learned all the DIYs and cataloged everything for myself and I'm still not banned but I wouldn't do this if you're scared of getting banned.

    As of changing your name, I'm not sure myself but I heard from some people that it doesn't make you an island representative anymore.

    You better not trying to do that, it may glitch your save or remove your role of representative of the island.

    Thanks for the answers. To clarify, I wanted to change the name of a different player that's not the island representative but if that'll glitch the save I suppose I better not.

    Using nhse can change the name.
    And picking up bugs on gift bags doesnt added to bugpedia, but can be donated to the museum (rn sharing bug/fish/other non giftables, turn the object on a stick

    Does someone giving you hacked bells/nmt online via dodo code result in a ban or flag as of now? I have a clean switch.

    I've had hacked DIY recipes in my pockets before so I don't think so.

    Hey, what happens if I change my player name in the game? I want to play online but with a different player name, because my old name is stuipd. I'm not sure if this causes a ban.

    No, it is safe for you to change the name like I did twice and not get banned at all.

    I have a question: Is it mostly safe if I edit the save with NHSE (I only give myself items), then load this save onto the switch and go online with it? Without emunand but with the cfw.

    Hi guys, i moved my OFW save to CFW when Sx OS wasn’t update for 11.0.1 and custom my save with NHSE, ACNHSpawner (giving full bells, NM, DIY and flatted my island to make a new one).

    Is it safe with the last update 1.8.0a of ACNW to transfer my CFW save to overwrite my old OFW save ?

    I forgot something, my OFW save is on the online save ACNW server.

    Is not going to corrupt anything ?
