Warning about Bunny Day in Animal Crossing New Leaf:


Once your town rolls over to bunny day, many rocks will spawn all over your town. This is for the purpose of breaking them to find Stone Eggs to turn in for Zipper T. Bunny’s prizes.

There’s a REALLY high chance that the event will glitch out where the rocks will not be removed the following day, and they’ll turn into normal unbreakable rocks.

So be sure to break all the rocks before the event ends in order to prevent this bug from happening!

Hot Topic is known amongst artist groups as one of the worst offenders of art theft in U.S. retailers. I know artists are important to What Pumpkin, and I’d imagine multiple cases of art theft would be a very big deal. The most well-known of the cases were stolen fan art from independent artists, which is the same demographic the Design Contest was aimed to.  I’m an artist myself and I wouldn’t want to support a store that steals from my peers.

The people running Hot Topic have zero respect to artists and to copyright law. They’ve been ripping-off independent artists’ storefronts, and continue do so. The whole company really should have been shut down long ago.

If you support artists, independent, fan artist, or any kind, you should oppose Hot Topic and MSPA’s association with them!

Tell What Pumpkin to kick Hot Topic out of the Design contest RIGHT NOW.

We have so little time left to stop this please tell them that it is completely unacceptable to do any sort of business with petty art thieves.

Even if you don’t know what to say, or if you think it would compromise the contestants; It won’t. Just please voice your thoughts in anyway you can put them. Don’t let Hot Topic get a dime out of Homestuck.

1 and 5 owo

#1 has been answered. uvu

5: If you could date one special character, who would it be?

One special character I’d date would have to be… Sable. She’s such a shy cutie, I just want to cuddle around and comfort her ;w;;;

rott-ing-root Asked:
1, 33, and 34

1: Why did you name your character and town the way you did?

I named my character Kevin because… I love the name and its pretty much mine~ uvu Life in AC as Kev is awesome! As for my town, I named it “Shalour” after Shalour City in Pokemon XY. Reason behind that one was because its the town where two characters of mine are from and I came to love these two islander butts. uwu;

33: Ever had a villager you loved move out on you?

HHHHH-…. One time, I was so busy, I didn’t play for a week.. When I came back to play on New Leaf…. MARSHAL MY BELOVED SQUIRREL MOVED OUT… I swear, I just wanted to soft-reset my town to get him back but I didn’t ;;;; Still the worse feeling ever.

34: Who is the ugliest villager that you ever had or have?

Oh gosh… That honor has to go to Beardo. I had him once, he was the first to move away from my town (THANK GOODNESS) and that Bear, scared the ever living heck outta me. ono;
