Starting now, you can give acorns to each other.

What are acorns? Well, they are a fun thing that you can collect and share with your friends on ATP. Click on someone's username and then click on "Give acorns to [username]". Giving someone acorns is a very special thing and lets them know that you appreciate them.

At some point in the (near) future, I will have extra badges and special microbadges that you can spend acorns on to receive.

What if you don't have acorns to give? Well, soon I'll have ways for you to get acorns from the system. Smiling

Aren't they the cutest? And, so much fun! Lovey dubby I love acorns too! Some friends who live about a mile from me have many huge Live Oak trees all over their property and they complain every year when the acorns fall. We have two scrub or sand oaks near the driveway and I love when the little acorns fall and the sound of the crunch when you walk on them.
