Since the ACCF board has kind of slowed down since the Japanese release of New Leaf, I hope to stir up a key debate again. And that question is the following- is time traveling cheating?
Please note that changing for Daylight Savings time does not count. By time traveling, I mean going back earlier in the day on Sunday to buy turnips, going back in time to a previous day to water flowers and red turnips and to go to missed holidays, and going in the future to do holidays that you won't be able to attend due to real life, grass regrowth, or just for money or because of impatience.
Personally, I don't think going back in time is cheating (how can someone at church buy turnips? This can't be classified as cheating), nor do I think that there is anything wrong with going forward a day to get a holiday you would otherwise miss. However, I also think that going forward in time due to impatience, money, or grass regrowth is cheating, as the game is meant to be played day-to-day. Of course, you are all entitled to your own opinions, so I'm just seeing what most of you think.
Please remain civil!

This is going to sounds so cliche, but I'd refer to it as bending the rules rather than cheating.
I wouldn't called it hacking either, since the option's always there in game.

I ahree with everything except the grass regrowth part, since the game designers pushed us into the corner with their failtastic feature. Sure, it's a last resort but one many have taken when nothing else works.

I understand your disgust with the grass paths system, but I still think that you should heal normally, or, if it's honestly too much to ask, start over and manage the grass better.

I'm actually tolerant of grasswear and find it even a bit useful at times, and i do restore my grass the slow intended way, but when you can't play your game in order to restore your grass for six to eight months because it encompasses most if not all of your town, then time travel is necessary.  But it's not cheating. Cheating is to gain advantage. There's no advantage to spending hours loading and advancing, loading and advancing, losing neighbors you really liked, having weeds everywhere, and losing your hybrids.

But it will always be the better option to losing everything you accomplished to restart your town because of one stupid feature.

If they give you the option to change the time, it's not cheating.

I would have to say cheating is doing something to that the game doesn't allow you to do and goes against the programing, but people found a way around it. For example, making yourself vulnerable to bee stings.

Now, that's cheating.

I think going day-by-day for any reason is not cheating. Changing the hour to be able to shop/sell things, buy turnips, see K.K. Slider, or celebrate a holiday that would otherwise be missed due to work, school, family, ect. is not cheating. However, TTing years into the future to get bells out the wazoo, get rid of neighbors, or whatever other reasons there are is cheating. Skipping weeks at a time just because is plain silliness, and I don't think it's cheating, but at the same time I don't see why anyone would do it. Skipping years just because you want to see what would happen? Also siliness. You will probably end up starting over, or working much harder than you should have to to get your town back to normal. For the most part, the type of Time Travel that happens the most frequently anymore is not generaly of a cheaning nature, as far as I'm concerned. It's done in recognition that real life does take precedence over video games. The fact that the game allows for it is a sign of that as well.

I put down paths as soon as I restarted my town, and I'm still getting spots where I know I don't walk losing grass! I'm travelling no matter if it's considering cheating or not. I go a day at a time, water, weed, etc., each day. So I'm not considering this cheating since I am playing each day that I go. I didn't start on the actual real time day anyway.

Hacking's more like it.

No, I don't think that time travelling is cheating. You paid for the game, it's your own personal town...do what you want.

Since I don't play often I do Time Travel to events I missed, and to fix my hair if I play when the shops are closed.
