Kk, I would like to rant about how you have to spend hours to get black and all you have to do to stay white is use a parasol, but we all know you aren't good read the whole thing.

Anyway, how exactly does it work? I read somewhere(and I was horribly wrong) that all you had to do was stand in the sun on the island for 15 minutes during the day.(horribly wrong) Me and 3 others tried it, and we all stayed pale.(wrong)
Has anyone tanned yet? and if so, please tell me how.

You need to be outside during the summer without a hat or umbrella for several hours walking around.

According to the official site,

Having anything on your character's head will prevent tanning.

This means anything. Hats, masks, glasses, anything.

Wrong. I get tans with plenty of things on.

You sure you guys weren't tan level 1 TC? it's hard to notice. Also, you won't tan until the next day for some reason.

The hats and masks thing is official. Don't spout that it's wrong when the developers have stated it for themselves as truth. I've personally not gotten results while wearing glasses of any kind though. Lower facial items don't have an effect from my testing.

I did forget about having to wait a day though.

Only masks, caps and big hats block it. I've worn halos, flowers, etc. on my head, along with numerous face gear, and have gotten a level 4 tan.

You're absolutely wrong. I was wearing bandana and red glasses and got a tan.

Tan goes away really quickly too, at Solstice I played for a good 12 hours and got a killer tan, now I'm back to super white.
