I changed the code last night, took me a while but I got it, so when you welcome someone and when you give thanks, it earns you banana bucks.
You earn more for welcoming someone than giving thanks (that can't really be abused much anyway). And you earn more for receiving a thanks than receiving a welcome (encourages good posts). If you reverse the action and remove your thanks or your welcome, the bucks get reversed as well.

Thanks, checking. Some actions cause you to loose bucks, but I will check the algorithm to see where its leaking too much. Regards

OK, for example, when you do something that causes you to earn, then you reverse it (like post, then delete the post) - the negation calculation multiplies what you earned by what you are reduced with by 1.5. So if you earned 10 and you reversed it, you loose 15.
I just changed that though so it does not do that.
But its a powerful algorithm like I was explaining.
Still fine tuning some other settings.. I don't want everyone walking around here broke... that's not good for the economy

There was a slight bug in the code that was resolved, it involved negating the credit for joining, and multiplying that by the factor, when the joined member makes his first post and becomes upgraded into the posting members usergroup.
In other words, when you make your first post here, a lot of things happen (including giving you permission to use the private message system). The bug was reversing your join credit and multiplying that by the factor. I have patched it now and recalculated totals.

Default Re: BananaBucks

Some members have asked about banking. So let's now talk about the bank.
You must have 500 BananaBucks in your savings account in the bank to earn interest.
When you add BananaBucks to your savings account in the bank, your visible total to the other members decreases.
2% interest is calculated every 30 days.
There's a 2% transfer fee to move funds between your checking and savings.
Deposits transfer every midnight and there's a 1 day hold.
There's other small fees, like an early withdrawal fee of 5% if you cancel a pending deposit.
We're not using loans at the moment but we have the capability to turn it on one day.

ok so in essence...the banana bucks are used like a checkbook and a savings account. that part i get. the part i dont get is how are they to be used? so to say if someone has a plant i want and they will trade it for nana bucks....i can transfer that amount of nana bucks to them? im kind of clueless in sparta again.

Yes! You can donate to others. I just added a link next to where the BananaBucks total is displayed, that reads "Donate", that should make it easy.
Click that link to send the person some of your BananaBucks.
You can think of it as "Pay" or "Donate", because it's basically a transfer from you to them.
