Hey guys! I've just started AC:NL after finally being able to buy a 3DS with my hard earned summer money and wow it brings back a lot of memories! I used to be a huge player of WW and CF a few years ago but stopped due to school. I've heard a lot about the community and I'm really excited to meet so many people with the same common interest :~)
Edit: I'm also having a bit of trouble getting my avatar to show up and my town appearing under my username? Any help?
Welcome to ACC! I hope you'll enjoy using the site
Avatar: When you go to your profile, there should be a white box saying "click to change avatar." Just click on that, choose the options you want (Character, Background) and press confirm. It will then show you your final complete avatar and you'll have the option to either "change avatar" or "confirm." Click confirm.
