New Researchers and more Members joining the Game Guides SPT
We are pleased to announce two new Researchers, kikicat and MissMaddy. They've both done a wonderful job in the Media and Events Special Projects Team, so we thought we'd steal them away to join the Staff and help out in other areas too.

Talking of Special Projects Teams, some wonderful Members have agreed to join the Game Guides SPT. They are:


Please use this thread to welcome and congratulate all of them.

Worldwide cyber attack
There is a cyber attack spreading across the globe at the moment. Please keep yourself up to date on this in order to protect any devices that may be vulnerable.

The ransomware that is spreading is aimed at the Windows operating system. If you are using Windows, at home, school, or work, please ensure that your device has been backed up and has the latest security patches. Microsoft released a fix for this vulnerability in March, but it appears that some devices haven't been updated and it is these that are having issues today.

ACC Summer Contests
What better way to kick off the unofficial start of Summer than with some new contests?  With the help of our new Media and Events Special Project Team we are putting on two awesome contests that you should definitely check out below!

Our first contest is a Fuzzy Image Contest. You may remember we had one of these during our GameCube event a few months ago, and with such positive participation we decided to bring it back! Though, this time with a twist! If you'd like to participate be sure to enter this contest by clicking the link.

Our second contest is a Caption Contest. Here members are asked to give a caption for a given Animal Crossing photo. The photo, and how to enter, can be found on the linked thread.

We are hoping to put on a number of contests and events in the future, so please keep an eye out! If you have any questions or concerns about the contests, or anything related feel free to PT Devin2600, Dimentio95, wakkitty, and yankees24cano.

Happy Bunny Day!
Happy Bunny Day! (Where's the Bunny emote when you need it?)

If you are playing Bunny Day in City Folk there is a stickied guide for the event here, and if you are playing Bunny Day in New Leaf you will be pleased to know that the Dev Team uploaded the guide to a static page last night. You can find it here.

This year we will endeavour to replace all stickied guides with static pages. We also appreciate that some guides may have been temporarily lost due to the archiving that used to take place. If you remember any useful game guides that have been archived, please let us know about them here. In that thread there will soon be a table showing all the guides that are in progress, are live, or are stickied on ACC. Once the table is added, please let us know if you have suggestions for other guides you feel should be added to ACC but are missing from the table.

Thanks, and happy egg hunting!

This site IS a Community! Thank You!
You may have noticed that feature updates have been happening regularly. This is mostly due to some restructuring behind the scenes as well as increased availability of key Staff. However, what's not immediately obvious is the impact made by some Members.

So, the Staff would like to say a huge thank you to some amazing Members of this Community.

Recently there has been a lot of help and participation from Members, and it really makes this site feel more like a Community when that happens. Last month, we announced Update 1.12.0, and one of the popular features was new avatars for the Community. However, it wasn't just the Staff that made this happen. The new Welcome amiibo avatars that were added in update 1.12.0 were made possible by the following Members:


Also in Update 1.12.0. was the addition of Welcome amiibo items to the My Catalog section of ACC. These items were checked in-game and noted in this thread by the following Members:


At the weekend, April Fools' Day 2017 ran as smooth as it did because of the immediate commitment and participation of the Media & Events Special Projects Team, who are:


Additionally, our New Leaf April Fools' Day Guide will soon be completed on the live site thanks to the efforts of the Members who added content in this thread and this one. These Members are:


Finally, our New Leaf Coffee Guide has thus far received input from the following Members:


The more participation from Members, the quicker this guide will also be deployed.

A huge thank you to the Members who've been so helpful. Whether you are one of these Members or not, please consider how much more can be achieved with continued collaboration between the Community and the Staff. If you feel called to help, you can either apply to join the Staff has a Researcher or Developer, or you can help by adding content to threads on the Site Features Queue board.

To apply for a Researcher or Developer position, or to nominate someone as a Moderator or Scout, please send your submissions via the page links at the bottom of most pages. Just click on the appropriate Staff badge or title you find there, or use these links:


The Site Features Queue board has been updated regularly every month this year, and is almost to the point where most new threads that will be added this month will have yellow or green light bulbs. Those light bulb colours mean that they need further content added, and this is where the Community can really get involved in helping us. In addition, later this month there should be updates to that board which will make navigation easier and will also provide the Community with immediate status updates.

We appreciate that it can sometimes feel that the Staff aren't responding to the Community, but the restructuring behind the scenes has clearly made an improvement in the speed at which some Staff controlled parts are proceeding. This has slowly also made space for the Modmin side of things to catch up. Although there is a very small Modmin team at the moment, new work methods are in the pipeline and the Community should see the result of that towards the end of April.

Once again, thank you for all of your efforts and we hope that it continues. We also hope you can see how much of a difference you make.


Thank You!
