Community Rules

This community is for Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival and upcoming AC games, NOT AC games released prior to New Leaf, therefore your post must be related to ACNL, ACHHD, ACAF, or upcoming AC news with anything unrelated to it under a cut. If you're not sure if your entry is on-topic, take a look at our tags listed below.

Please be careful not to spam the community. Off-topic, improperly cut, advertising personal sales or other communities (including offering AC items for real money) without written community owner approval, whiny, and offensive posts and comments, as well as excessive posts in which you post more than five times in a 24-hour period, may be deleted with or without warning to ensure this stays a quality community.

Please use cuts (click here to see how) for the following content so we don't throttle internet connections or spam people who don't want to see this kind of info:
very long posts of any kind, such as long wishlists
My New Leaf entries (see K.K. Slider below for details)
spoiler images and details (when in doubt, just use a cut)
images larger than 700 x 700 pixels (if it goes past the white border on the main community page, use a cut)
more than three images in a post
more than one video in a post
more than a combination of two images and a video in a post
anything unrelated to AC (but the main topic of your post must be related to AC)

Please use proper grammar and spelling so everyone can enjoy the conversations in this community (but we understand if English is not your first language), and do not change the font size or color of your posts.

Please use tags to make searching for info in the community faster; it's easy, just use the tags listed below when you're making a new community entry. The mods will not always add tags for you if you forget, so if you want more people to see your posts, use tags.

Please be kind and courteous to everyone in- and out-of-game -- we're all here to have fun and relax. The mods have lives outside of this community and will not waste time on rule-breakers; it is YOUR responsibility to follow the rules, we just enforce them. Grounds for getting banned include any three instances or one serious instance of bashing, trolling, whining, rudeness, racism, sexism, posting porn in the comm, messing with someone else's town, repeated advertising attempts of personal sales or other communities (including offering AC items for real money) without written community owner approval, ban-hopping, pestering an adult who does not reply or play with you because of your age, repeated rule-breaking, and generally causing drama. Please be aware that this is a community of mostly adults so maturity is a requirement of every member; adult language and screenshots of suggestive content are allowed but immature actions and entitled whining are not. Please PM a mod if you see something that should be deleted or repeatedly have problems with a particular member; DO NOT post about the problem in the community or it will be deleted because it will only push members away and exacerbate the situation (see Banned Players for more details).

Every member is welcome to start their own My New Leaf journal, where you chronicle your very own ACNL adventure! Post images and videos of your game or simply tell us about your experiences, just follow these simple steps:
1) Input your pics/videos/text under a cut; you can also simply link to your ACNL blog/Tumblr/etc.
2) Use the "my new leaf" tag so we know what your post is
3) Choose to make your New Leaf journal entries open to all or for members only, just keep in mind our comm shows up in search engines so people outside the comm may see and even take your content if it's not members-only.

In-game, gleameyesluxray resides in a beach house in Lux Bay surrounded by perfect orange trees. She plays in real-time and is most often shopping, fishing, and catching bugs to complete her museum and Nooklings catalog. Her favorite holiday is Halloween, and her favorite villagers are Tangy, Gaston (aka Pringle Bunny Man), Octavian, Blathers, and Celeste. Out-of-game, she likes playing video and tabletop games (especially Animal Crossing, Pokemon, and Monster Hunter), reading, Geocaching, traveling worldwide, riding road/mountain bicycles and sport motorcycles, and hiking/swimming/rock-climbing/outdoor activities. Play/trade with me!

3kame ~ I'm new to the Animal Crossing world, but I can tell I will be a fan for a long time. My town is named after the Sherwood forest from Robin Hood. Before I knew about the ultra landscapping that's popular, I wanted a forest town. I'm glad I stuck with it now, since my town is rustic and interesting. Oranges are native here and we enjoy Cranky and Smug villagers (and our coffee shop). 3kame also likes turtles, Pokemon, and reading.

kattgrrl ~ I'm one of the older Animal Crossers. I got hooked on Wild World and am loving the 3D version of the game. My town is named after my favorite city in the world, Galway. I created four characters in my town - simply because I need more rooms to decorate! There are so many cool items and characters in this new game :)
