I see that acorns can be earned for comments on a plant. I thought I posted a good comment on a Miracle Berry (Sensepalum) last week but didn't receive any sort of feedback on it and no acorn. Is there something I am missing regarding comment qualifications or is there an approval process I missed?

Hi Terri,

Thanks for writing with this question.

You're right hat the comment was a good comment and is helpful to anyone who visits that plant looking for information. According to my logs here I see that you did get an acorn for posting that comment.

The other comment you posted, about the Rumex acetosella, did not result in an acorn because it was shorter than the system gives acorns for (the system only gives an acorn for comments that are paragraph length or longer).

I hope this answers your question. Smiling

Thanks Dave, I'm sorry to be asking stupid questions, I registered here not too long after startup but haven't kept up with this site so I 'm not too familiar with finding my way around yet. I got emails abourt Acorns for posting a couple of pictures so I thought one was going to come for posting a comment too

Sorry, sorry...... *Blush*

Never be sorry for asking!
I always get Dave to double check to make sure that the acorn system is working properly.

I started with ATP when it was created, but my brain lost the info re: acorns.
Thanks for your clear & precise explanation about acorns.
I'm not sure what I can contribute to the site, but will do my best Smiling
