ACC Contests Have Returned
As many of you may have noticed, there has been a lack of official ACC contests for quite some time now. These contests used to be run on a monthly basis and had a very good reputation with the community. I am happy to be reporting to you that not only is the Pattern Contest making its long awaited return, but also more contests will be making an appearance as well. Each month we aim to run contests that have different themes and types.
We will be running two separate contests during April. The first one will be a Pattern Contest with the theme of April Fools Day where the object is to draw the funniest Blanca face. The second one will be an in-game contest to capture the funniest "Pitfall moment". We are accepting entries for both contests at the moment, so if you are interested in entering either of them, check out the noticeboard for more information.
Contest types will vary from month to month. Some will be based on designing patterns but there will also be other types of contests organised including Keyboard Art, Fan-Fic & Room Decorating contests, as well as so much more!
Like always, there will be winners of these contests. The members that come in 1st, 2nd, & 3rd places will receive a certificate of their accomplishments. In the future, we plan to have the winning entries displayed somewhere on the site, but for now we can reward you with a certificate!
Please note that this will be the only announcement for the contests. All further announcements will be posted on the ACC Noticeboard
. These notices will be posted in the "Current Events" category for now. We hope to see a lot of you participate in the April contest and any events in the future. Be sure to flag the Contests notice to keep informed of updates and new contests!
If you have any queries or concerns, feel free to post them on the Official Question & Answer
Have a good day!The Contest Organizing team:

April Fool's Day Announcement
Yes, yesterday's announcement was a prank, and yes we can spell so there's no need to worry about that either.
For those of you who were just annoyed at us, well........ Sometimes things are beyond our control. Sometimes, we've just missed something entirely. It happens. That's life. While we will always endeavour to do our best, sometimes our best may not be up to standard or cannot be adjusted in time for an event.
For those of you who joined in with the chaos, or despite the chaos - well done! Some of you took everything in your stride. Good on you! Some of you were annoyed with the pranks but managed to stay calm, not be vicious, and posted some constructive comments. I was greatly impressed with many of you and your comments. Enough so, that I've saved all of the April Fool threads from Site Support and Site Suggestions and will be discussing with the Modmin team which people should be invited to join us in developing some of the Bell Shop ideas that are still outstanding. Being able to criticise while being constructive is a fabulous talent and I hope all of the invited people will join us to improve ACC further.
So another year over for April Fool's pranks, and with the Devs soon starting Update 003 you will need to post your ideas soon on the Site Suggestions
board if you want your ideas to be used for April Fool's 2015.
Then again, we may just be ''super annoying'' and play all the same pranks ''avaliable'' to us...... again.... and again... and again.... What? You think I'm joking?

Nintendo Pulling Previous Generation Wi-Fi Service May 20
A bit of sad news I don't enjoy having to pass on. Nintendo has posted an announcement yesterday
stating that they will be terminating the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection service for both previous generation consoles, Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS.
What does this mean? Basically, you will no longer be able to connect to others online to play games such as AC:WW and AC:CF/LGTTC -- or any other Wii/DS game after May 20, 2014.
The 3DS and Wii U connection service will remain operable (likely until at least next generation), and you will still be able to play your Wii/DS games with others on a local Wi-Fi connection.
We will discuss how this impacts ACC, but we will likely be pulling Friend Codes for all Wii/DS games following May 20, as a result of this announcement.

Nintendo Network Outages Reported
With a recent 3DS family software update that brough Miiverse to the 3DS platform, Nintendo has been hit with some network issues and outages
that affect eShop access and creation of Nintendo Network IDs (NNIDs). According to the linked article, increased traffic seems to be partly responsible. Nintendo is working to address the service issues. Nintendo Support is advising trying certain services at a later time if you are experiencing problems.
