Not sure if this counts, but 2008 (when I joined) - midway 2010 I took a long break. Why? I forgot I had an account here. Oops?
2010 I was active for the rest of the year until I began to lose interest in giveaways and Wi-Fing on CF, which is what my activity on here mostly consisted of. Someway through 2011 I think I took quite a few months break, maybe about 4 or 5? I know I did have quite a few breaks away from the site in 2011.
Now, I believe I've been consistently active since early 2012.
I was pretty consistently active from 2007 until college started in 2011. Then college kind of took over my life (and still has) - however, I still come on ACC everyday, even if sometimes all I do is check my messages.

Hmm. I'm pretty sure I've only maybe missed a week or two due to vacations I've taken where i didn't want to be on the computer at all. Other than that, I think I've been pretty active almost daily since I joined. I credit that to my activity in a giveaway for several years and of course my involvement as a member of ACC Staff.

I've been active on a daily basis for as long as I can remember. The only exception is when I'm on vacation with no access to the Internet. I might also have missed days when I first joined ACC. That's too long ago for me to remember.

Yes, there's been one. I left ACC from April 2007 to July 2007. I had lost interest in AC earlier that year, and eventually saw no reason to continue using the site. Kind of a mistake on my part, because I left all of my friends here without a word. I got hooked back on AC again that summer in July, and subsequently came back to the site. I've been logging in and using the site pretty regularly since then.

Yes, I've taken several very long breaks. From what I remember, I was active on the site since joining in January 2004, until late 2006. From there, I took a long break and ended up returning to the site a few times, but never for long.
Finally in March of 2013, I returned to the site for good. The story of how I came back is kind of funny.
I was really sick with a bad cold, and not feeling well at all. For one reason or another, Animal Crossing came to mind, and how I hadn't played any of the games in so long. As I thought about it, I started feeling nostalgic over the times I spent with the games - especially the memories of playing Animal Crossing with my family. That lead me to pick up AC:CF again and give it a whirl, which was quite enjoyable, since I couldn't do much with how sick I was.
After spending the day (and most of the night ) playing CF, I remembered about ACC, and really wanted to log on and check things out. I couldn't remember my password (and had an entirely different email than when I first registered), so it took a few days to get access to my account. But once I did, I was hooked.
Hard to see myself leaving anytime soon. It's just so pleasant here.

I joined in May 2009, but didn't become active until a year later. Since then, I don't think that I've been gone for more than a week, save for the time in early April 2011 when I was inexplicably locked out of my account and it took eight days to get it back because the mods were taking so long to respond to my support e-mails.
