GDPR and How it Will Affect ACC
Starting on May 25th, 2018, ACC will be required to be comply with GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). Similar to COPPA in the United States, GDPR is a regulation that was passed that applies to all websites that process and possess data on individuals living within European countries. There are numerous changes that we must make to ensure ACC is compliant with GDPR. The most notable change that will affect our user base will be that all users below the age of 16 will be required to receive parental consent to use ACC effective May 25th, 2018. We are making this announcement ahead of time to give our users, particularly those between the ages of 13 and 16, advanced notice to the forthcoming changes.

GDPR and how it will affect ACC in a nutshell:

• All users below the age of 16 will now be required to provide parental consent to use ACC.
• Existing users below the age of 16 that have not provided parental consent via existing means ($0.30 COPPA donation) will be required to provide parental consent to continue to use ACC.
• Users that have already received parental consent ($0.30 COPPA donation) will not be required to provide parental consent again.
• Users that are 13 and older may provide parental consent via email communication.
• Users below the age of 13 are still required to have a parent make a $0.30 donation as proof of consent, as per COPPA regulation.
• We will be releasing an updated Privacy Policy very soon which will further detail these changes, and will also detail updated user data and privacy rights.

If you have any questions regarding these forthcoming changes, please visit our ACC GDPR Compliance Q&A Sticky.

Uh Oh!! What's going on?
Our Bunny Day Eggstravaganza has been off to an eggscelent start, but it appears something has gone wrong... After careful analysis we think the bunnies are attempting to take over the site!

We will do our best to keep the event running smoothly, but please keep your eye out for stray bunnies that seem like they’re up to no good!

P.S. Please drop by and congratulate our new Media & Events Special Projects Team members here.

Thanks to Iolite!
I wanted to let everyone know that Iolite has asked to step down from her role as Site Manager, but will be remaining on the staff as a Moderator.

To say that Iolite has been a tremendous asset to the staff would be a gross understatement. She has done so much work and put in so much time, that to even try to list 10% of all she's done would take several paragraphs. ACC would truly not be where it is today without her.

She headed up the development team for the past several years, which including working with everyone to prioritize the work that needed to be done, helping find new members to join the development team, and was a huge help in getting ACC 2.0 defined and kicked off. She also formed the Special Projects team, and organized several new forums for these and other development efforts on ACC.

All this, in addition to helping out with other community needs and working with the rest of the staff to keep the site safe and moving forward.

Words simply cannot express how grateful I am for all she's done as a Site Manager.

The good news is, she'll still be around in the role as a Moderator, but she needed to step down from the bit more demanding role of Site Manager at this time.

Please join me in thanking Iolite for all she's done at this thread.
