to the site! You can find out more about the acorns here: http://garden.org/special/acor... (this link should be visible in your profile page, next to the amount of acorns you have). Essentially you can get acorns from contributing content and you can spend them on "badges" to add to your profile or raffle entries.
Catalogue of Life ---- RHS Orchid Register ---- Orchid Genera: HTML PDF
RHS Lilium Register ---- Lilium Species Diagram ---- Lilium Traits: HTML PDF ---- Lilium Species Crosses: HTML PDF XLSX
The current profile image is that of Lilium 'Tiger Babies'.

|I used my acorns for the first time yesterday. Go to your your profile, scroll down to manage badges. There you can purchase a badge from a large list, that shows your particular interest or talent. All that I picked required 5 acorns. I chose Pacific North West, houseplants and succulents, costing 15 acorns. Now I have three badges with my posts. I hope you can purchase some, it was fun.|

imjamco said:What's an acorn in post lingo? Thx!
Sometimes members give them as a compliment about a post of photo. Like a "thumbs-up", but more emphatic because we have to "earn" acorns and only have limited numbers.
The "acorn" icon, as well as the "Thumbs-Up" icon, usually appear in the lower-right corner of whatever you might want to compliment.
Just because it ISN'T complicated doesn't mean I can't MAKE it complicated!
