Sure thing micro!
I'm going to swap it with a custom one done special for us with a banana guy eating popcorn!
It's ready, we're actually just waiting for my graphics designer to come online to send it to me... hope to have it maybe later or tomorrow perhaps.

You guys crack me up!

This has just given me an idea for banana popcorn. I'll cut the bananas into little 1/4" squares and drop them in screaming hot oil to see if they'll 'POP'.

Thanks to all for the idea...

Banana butter should be easy enough to make.

I'm guessing that the amounts listed in the "Richest Users" list (http://www.bananas.org/credits.php?do=manage) is just for checking, not savings + checking ?

Sorry, but I haven't gone through all of the posts. The wiki often gets ignored and I am wondering if B$ are generated from activity there. I am not about milking anything, but I have spent some time posting things to the wiki and wish more folks would do so. A while back someone told me I could post their photo to the wiki but I wish they just did it themself, but I did it because I thought it would help. The wiki is a wonderful resource and I am just wondering if B$ might be helpful in motivating greater participation there.

I'd like to do some work in the Wiki myself but I always seem to have problems when I try to (most likely my fault). Like for instance, I've wanted to add myself to the section "Members Growing This Plant" for different species or cultivars but I always have difficulties. So level with me Harvey, am I just a moron? Are pics easy to add?

Brent, you must be a moron to open yourself up to a question like that!

It was confusing to me at first but once I figured it out it wasn't hard to do. One thing that was confusing is that the edit like for a section isn't always real obvious, but you should look directly to the right of the title for a section (sometimes I've clicked at the bottom of the section which was really the top of the next section).

For adding your map you enter YOUR information in right below another user and your information would look exactly like this:

29.532839863453397, -95.29266357421875, [[User:bananaman88]]

(I took your coordinates from your information when I clicked on "Find me on the map!" link under your name on the post above.)

It's much easier to go into each cultivar you grow and do that all at the same time so you can just paste the same information into each wiki page.

If you have your photos in your gallery, it is easy to post them to the wiki. When you view your photo in your gallery you will see that it has the code below it for three different uses. The third one is the code to be used for the wiki.

I think Jarred has posted this information before but maybe it should be placed as a "sticky" somewhere.

Can I please get triple B$ for this post??? lol

Good luck you former moron!

Harvey

A direct connection to the plants that we have listed on our profiles to the "Members growing this plant" map would be nice. Meaning, we (IBS) have a list of bananas that we can click on that become added to the list on our profile (just like adding a smilie to a post, it is added with a click) and then automatically get added to the Wiki Map for that species/variety; therefore, a step is eliminated for us members, the wiki is actually up to date, and it will make adding your species and varieties a priority to people because Jarred can make it worth some B$.

Yall follow me? Have I lost you?

I think this would be great because people add them to their profiles, but won't bother with the Wiki as it is complicated.

If you want this to get even more involved, split the "Bananas I Grow" section into "Bananas I Grow" and "Bananas I've Grown" as a few members have already done that, like I have. The purpose is for people to see it and ask our experiences, whether we still have it or not. And only the "Bananas I Grow" would automatically be added to the map/list in the Wiki, and "Bananas I've Grown" could just be present in the profile.

Jarred, possible? It might have to be changed to a list if you can not link our profiles to a Google-sponsored map.

That would be pretty nice. I'm thinking it would be a little complicated and probably not possible from the users profiles but sure would be worth it.

Thanks for the info, Harvey. Jarred has posted all of this before (prob. many times!) but I still have trouble at times. I haven't tried recently though, I must admit. I know about the codes that are below the pictures but I wasn't sure which one to use until now. Thanks for the help! TRIPLE POINTS FOR HARVEY!!!
