I just restarted my AC:WW game last week, and have run into a strange problem. For the first five days of play, the mail system seemed to function normally. I would send a letter with attached gift (usually fruit) to each resident every morning (after 9:00am), and would recieve replies the next morning in the 9:00am mail delivery.
For the last couple of days, though, I have recieved only two letters from villagers, both of them yesterday, despite still sending letters with gifts to everyone every day. I fully expected a full letterbox again this morning, as that was the routine up until this 'glitch'.
Further details: This is a brand new town, only seven days old. There is only one character, 'Mariola', and her mailbox is completely empty. I ordered a star shirt from Nook's today, and it arrived just fine, so I don't think that the problem is a mailbox backup.
So, what I am wondering is; is this a glitch, or is it normal for the residents of your town to suddenly stop sending you replies and gifts? Is there some sort of limit to how much mail you will recieve from the animals each week?
Please understand that I have only had the AC:WW game for a few months, and am still unfamiliar with all of the features of the game.
