Sharing Additional Nintendo 3DS Friend Codes
We wanted to let the community know that we've added in two extra spots in the Friend Code exchange tool where you can enter up to two additional 3DS console FCs. These are labeled as "Nintendo 3DS Code 2
" and "Nintendo 3DS Code 3
". If you go to My Friend Codes
under "My ACC" on the left-hand menu, select the the 'Edit
" action link under My WiFi Games and Settings
and scroll down (or filter the list by clicking 3DS), eventually you will find these two additional slots where you can enter your other 3DS friend code(s). Be sure to hit the 'Submit' button when finished.
Remember that you will only be able to see friend codes for those games and consoles that you have in common with another member. Members with more than one 3DS console can have up to three different 3DS friend codes that can be shown to other members now. However, those with only one 3DS code registered will not be able to see the 2nd or 3rd friend code of these members because you don't have any additional 3DS consoles to register in the exchange tool. With this in mind, we suggest that members with only one 3DS FC consider placing their sole 3DS friend code into all three Nintendo 3DS code slots. This allows you to see "Nintendo 3DS Code 2
" and "Nintendo 3DS Code 3
" of others that have such codes entered. Just be mindful that others with just one 3DS friend code to share may also do the same so you may see the same friend code for all three consoles for a number of members.
For members that actively use more than one 3DS console for WiFi play and trades on ACC, this should make things a bit easier in sharing those additional friend codes. Please be sure to inform your WiFi partners and buddies which of the 3DS codes to look for/use for the WiFi experience. Nothing like missing a WiFi time because the incorrect friend code was being used.
As with anything new, there are bound to be kinks to work out. If you need help with registering your friend codes or navigating the friend code registration pages, please seek out one our great Scouts
to assist you. Otherwise, please use the Site Support
board to report any issues with the additional FC slots or the Site Suggestions
board for specific comments about this functionality.

Sad News From Nintendo
It has hit the news cycle
overnight that Nintendo President and CEO, Satoru Iwata, died this past Saturday, July 11, 2015
Mr. Iwata took over as President of the company back in 2002 and spearheaded a resurgence of the company with the Nintendo DS and Wii consoles. Many Nintendo fans know him from his appearances in Nintendo Direct feeds as well. No news on a successor to head up Nintendo yet. We here at ACC certainly salute all Mr. Iwata has done for the Nintendo brand and especially for the continued support of the Animal Crossing series of games and characters which we all hold dear to our hearts.

New Board: "Site Features Queue" and Re: Archiving Threads
I wanted to post a couple updates for everyone.
First, after hearing that some members are experiencing issues with threads archiving and losing valuable information, we've switched off the archive feature for now, and will monitor how things go over the next few months. We may decide to leave it off for good, or we may figure out better alternatives. But for now, we're leaving all threads active going forward (note: previously archived threads are still archived).
Second, the Modmins and I would like to introduce you to a new board - the Site Features Queue board. This board will eventually list almost all of the threads that we have on the Staff work boards, and which relate to features that require Devs to implement. We haven't finished adding all of the threads to the SFQ board yet, but at least half have been added and there is certainly enough for the Community to get involved with.
Please note that you shouldn't post in all threads on the SFQ board. For a more detailed breakdown of the board you should read the ''Site Features Queue Board - Information and Guidelines'
' Sticky, and if you have any questions about the board or threads you should post in the ''SFQ Board - Questions & Information Corrections'
You will see mention of ACC 2.0 several times on the SFQ board. This is because the current aim after the release of the Bell Shop is to rewrite ACC. However, this is not certain and we'll update you again after the Bell Shop is open.
Talking of the Bell Shop, we are looking at releasing this in multiple stages, so that we can get the features to you quicker, and so we can get feedback sooner. This approach also helps keep the changes small, reducing the risk of bugs. Again, we'll update you soon on whether that will happen and what each stage would involve.
For now, enjoy the new board and watch out for at least a couple of hundred discussion threads that will be added to the SFQ board over the Summer.

We're currently experiencing issues sending out emails. This includes emails that the site sends as part of signing up and password resets, as well as emails that the staff sends out.
We're looking into it, and will let everyone know once this has been resolved.
UPDATE: Email has been restored. If you previously registered for an account, please try resetting your password, and you should get a new password you can use to sign in with. If you continue to have issues, please contact us at email@example.com.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
