Bell Shop and Site Rule Changes
Some of you may have noticed that the recent update is numbered 1.6.0. and that this was meant to be the update number for the release of the Bell Shop. We also previously stated that the Bell Shop would be released in stages, with the first stage being released in Summer this year.

After trying very hard to get it running, it is with regret that we bring you some bad news. Since ACC is written in such old code we firstly don't have enough Devs to work on that code. Additionally, despite having a few Devs that are willing to work on the code unfortunately we have very few that are active at the same time as each other. For a project such as the Bell Shop we require several Devs to collaborate over the same time period. Over the Summer, only a single Dev was able to devote significant time to the Bell Shop and that isn't enough to get the feature completed. Even with his excellent skills, while some progress has been made, we're still falling short on help - particularly in the design (HTML, CSS, UI/UX) side of things. The old code complicates it further still.

So, moving forward from here, this is what we see happening short term. With the few Devs that we have who can work on features independently of each other, rather than in a group, we will continue adding some features related to the Animal Crossing games. There are still quite a few items missing or in need of updating for the older games which we'd like to address. You'll be able to see which items we are focusing on by watching the lightbulbs on the Site Features Queue board. Long term, ACC needs the code rewritten as this is the only way to attract a larger team of Developers.

The Bell Shop, although not the main focus anymore, will still be worked on as and when possible. However, we will no longer be announcing updates for it. If you'd like to have your say on this announcement about the Bell Shop and moving forward, please use this thread.

You will also have noticed that when you logged in you were asked to agree to new Terms again. This is because there have been some changes to the Site Rules. A comprehensive list of the changes are posted in this thread where you can also ask questions of the Modmins about these changes.

New boards for HHD and amiibo
Following on from the previous announcement, we are pleased to announce that three new boards have been added, and I would like to apologise that once again deployment issues meant that the boards couldn't be released earlier.

The new boards are:

AC:HHD General - This board is for discussions about the Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer game. Please be advised that although amiibo cards and figurines are part of the game, there is a new dedicated board for amiibo discussions.

e-Reader & amiibo General - This board is for discussions of Animal Crossing e-Reader cards and Animal Crossing amiibo. Discussions of non-Animal Crossing cards and amiibo should be posted on the Video Gaming & Consoles board.

e-Reader & amiibo Card Trading - This board is for finding trading partners for GameCube e-Reader cards and Happy Home Designer amiibo cards. Since trading involves exchanging personal contact details such as full names and addresses, it should only be done by those who are aged 16 years and over.

Any threads which should be on the above boards will be moved by Modmins over the next couple of days. If any threads remain on the incorrect boards please send a PT to a Modmin and provide a link to the thread. Thread creators can also amend the title of their threads by adding ''Please Move'' to the end of the title. This should alert any Modmin patrolling that particular board.

Since the boards have been released quite late in the day, the catalogue for logging acquired amiibo cards will be added tomorrow. The GC catalogue will follow much later, and hopefully will be accompanied by a working Trading Post for Animal Crossing e-Reader and amiibo card trading.

Tomorrow, it is likely that new rules will be added to the live site. These rule updates are part of a larger project by the Modmins and will be followed up by more rule updates by the end of the year. For now, six rules have been merged and/or removed, and trading rules have been updated alongside a few other updates. For more details about what is entailed with the upcoming rule changes please be sure to follow the Operational Updates thread on the ACC Noticeboard.  

Finally, apologies again for not getting the boards out on Friday. It's always ''fun and games'' when it comes to deployment, but we hope that the features in queue for deployment soon will make up for some of the delay.

Updates to Rules and Boards
Within the next few hours we should be adding new boards for Happy Home Designer and amiibo card trading. Unfortunately not all of the Trading Post system will be completely set up for e-reader and amiibo card trading, but we will endeavour to get those deployed as soon as we can.

Accompanying the addition of boards will be some rule updates. A couple of those rule changes are related to amiibo cards, but most of the rule updates are part of a broader change that will continue for the next three months to ready the site for new features and policies.

We'd also like to remind you that whenever rule changes go live you will be required to agree to new terms when you next log on. This is completely normal, and is not an indication of a problem.

As before, Jader will announce the changes when they happen and a thread will be created on Site Support for you to report any issues that you may experience after the updates go live.

Thank you for your continued support and patience.

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.

Happy WiFi-ing!

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.
