I think the homepage of ACC is what should draw people in, whether they're already a member or not, reading the homepage is important and should be fun!

I think adding the villagers Birthday would add to the Animal Crossing atmosphere and it would be interesting to see which Animal Crossing villager shares a Birthday with each user.

This isn't top priority or even necessary, really. But it's just a fun little idea that could be added to the site.

Here's an idea of what I'm talking about.

The picture doesn't need to be added we could even add something like:

Today's Birthdays!

Friday, February 17th

I like this idea as well, I have to say. The rest of the Staff will probably hate me for saying this, but perhaps we could even take it one step further and have the villager be a link to a new ACC page with some basic information about the villager, as well as what they might like to receive as a birthday present.

Wait, I'm supposed to hate you for saying that?

That sounds like a great idea. We already have the characters section which is out of date and would probably require a lot of work to update. If we update it, we should add as much information as we can and link it whenever it is relevant.

This is a great idea, Eden, and I love the additional feature you suggested, Michael! While I don't think it is critical, I think it would be very nice to see in ACC 2.0, as it would require a lot of work, like Yankees said.

However, I feel that in order to extend the longevity of this feature, the characters should be made smaller. As ACC's activity increases in 2.0, more birthdays may show up on the homepage. In addition, as new Animal Crossing games come out, the developers will run out of unique birthdays to assign villagers, so there may be more than one villager having a certain birthday.

Therefore, I'm thinking something similar to this or this would last longer requiring fewer updates just to change the sizes of characters, and save space. (Note: Yes, I am aware that Apollo's birthday is not on February 17th. I was just using him as an example. )

That being said, I do not know how the layout of ACC 2.0 will look, so full size characters could certainly be work just as well or even better. However, if the [birthday] layout is similar to the current layout, I believe the size of examples I've provided above would work better due to what I mentioned earlier in the post.

Thanks for all your feedback, it's appreciated! I didn't mean that the picture had to absolutely be under the members Birthdays or that it had to be a certain size, I just wanted my idea to be put out there and whatever is easiest would work. I like your suggestion as well!

I think that the villager's birthday should be on the town page.
