For players of Animal Crossing who've been at it a while. No offense to any new players, there is a wonderful community you can join animal_crossing. Please do not join this one unless you are familiar with the game basics (i.e. don't ask what a pitfall is or how you increase the size of your house).
Here are a few good links for info if you're looking for it- The wonderful FAQ by legolastn is here www.gamefaqs.com has a wealth of information on this and just about every other game there is.
