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 If you remember any useful game guides that have been archived, please let us know about them here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:Aurora6
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:adria
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:ACCFDude
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: AC1NL
Finally, our New Leaf Coffee Guide
has thus far received input from the following Members: Elva
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: Nomination Nomination Application Application
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.

Update 1.12.1 and 1.13.0
In the last couple of weeks, another two updates have been deployed. These are detailed below and, as before, the feature titles are also links to the Site Features Queue thread which contains more details. 1.12.1 - March
ACC Buddies - Button
: The maximise/minimise button next to "ACC Buddies" in the left sidebar wasn't lined up with the same buttons for ACC Staff and ACC Wifi. This was corrected. Fix - Avatars
: Some avatars were corrected. Fix - Top Bells
: It was noticed that the recent Top Bells feature
, which is explained in more detail here
, caused at least one Jackpot advert to time out, and a Member was shown to have redeemed the Jackpot but didn't get credited with the Bells. This was fixed. Private Threads - Phantom User to Add
: After this feature
was deployed, a bug appeared where sometimes the person who creates a private thread sees that they have 1 person to add even though they're not adding anyone. This was fixed. 1.13.0 - April
April Fools' Day - Animal Crossing Switch
: Since Nintendo have recently launched a new console called the Switch, we decided to use this in a prank and make a Site Announcement detailing how everyone could install Animal Crossing Switch. April Fools' Day - Avatars for Community
: The Stick Avatars created for Staff use during April Fools' Day 2016 were such a hit with the Community. So, the following day, we decided we would also create some Stick Avatars for the Community for April Fools' Day and other special event days. If you missed out on using them during April Fools' Day 2017, you can view them by going to the SFQ board thread and will be able to use them at other events. April Fools' Day - Avatars for Community
: In addition to the Stick Avatars, we created Boondox themed avatars for April Fools' Day 2017 - plus a random Schrφdinger/cat avatar. If you missed out on using the avatars, you can still view them by going to the SFQ board thread. April Fools' Day - Avatars for Staff
: The Special Projects Team and Staff had a "Donate to Boondox" theme for April Fools' Day 2017. Unbeknown to the SPT and the Members, the Bells were actually going to the Staff. Ergo the Golden Avatars the Staff were sporting by the end of the day. You can view all the avatars on the SFQ thread. April Fools' Day - Banner
: As part of the "Donate to Boondox" theme, a clickable banner was created which led to a static page showing the amount of Bells donated. It also gave a bit more detail about the backstory to the theme. The banner can be viewed on the SFQ board thread. April Fools' Day - Username Changes
: Apart from having a "Donate to Boondox" theme, the Special Projects Team Members also had their usernames changed for the day to reflect their stance on Boondox. Some were pro-Boondox, and some were anti-Boondox.

Announcing Animal Crossing Switch!
As some of you may know, Nintendo released its newest console on March 3rd of this year, the Nintendo Switch. The console can be played at home, connected to your TV or on-the-go with its tablet-like touchscreen that can be removed from its docking station. This makes it one of the most interesting gaming consoles available. As of now, there are very few games out for the Nintendo Switch and unfortunately, it doesn't look like an Animal Crossing game is in the making yet.
We also know that the community has been waiting patiently for a new Animal Crossing game. It's been four and a half years since Animal Crossing: New Leaf came out and we're all ready for a new game.
ACC is here to brighten up your day. Today, we are announcing that we've bypassed Nintendo and created our very own Animal Crossing Switch! Keep in mind that this was created entirely by ACC without help from Nintendo, so if may be somewhat different from previous installments of Animal Crossing. Users can install it today and it is compatible with all Switch versions.
Installation instructions can be found here
. Please leave any feedback and reviews in this thread

Boondox in Dire Straits
Recently the ACC Staff decoded a secret transmission informing us about a dire situation in the town of Boondox. The citizens of Boondox are struggling to get by, with the majority living in poverty and with very little to eat! More information can be found hidden here
, but keep it quiet as it mustn't get into the wrong hands.
We could not ignore the call to help the poor Boondoxians in the midst of their tragedy, and therefore set up the following drives to raise Bells for their plight.
Staff Bake Sale
Clickable banners for quick donations
Type your username with your forehead
A percentage of Bells found on ACC will be donated to aid Boondox
Auctioning of Developer, Researcher and Scout positions to the Members
Unfortunately, after setting this up we were betrayed from within the ACC Staff ranks. As a result, the Gyroid Nation leader Lloid kidnapped me and left me stranded in Boondox!!! How rude!
Luckily, loyal ACC Staff were able to arrange a way for me to secretly communicate via threads which only you can see. Consequently, I am able to express my troubles in this announcement. Additionally, I am able to auction off senior Staff positions
in order to boost Bell donations for the Boondoxians and raise the ransom payment for my release. In return for your Bells, the Boondoxians and I will be releasing certain features periodically. Flag, and stay tuned to this data stream for further incoming transmissions from Boondox.....
Help us ACC One Members! You're our only hope!
