Welcome! And, Ziggy, you don't HAVE to use those acorns for anything just now. You can just hang onto them till you're more familiar with the site and then decide. Smiling
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

Hi Ziggy, and welcome to ATP.

Acorns are our currency here. There's no money involved in anything we do. e.g. there are occasionally raffles here at ATP, and we buy raffle chances with acorns. In the first "sticky" thread of this welcome forum, Trish gives a nice little description of acorns and how to earn them.

Welcome! to ATP, Ziggy.

There's also a link at the bottom of the page explaining acorn use, and how to get more. Smiling

I agree Hi Ziggy! And Welcome!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
