Maybe only one person has been giving lately so they are only listed once.
(I had to throw that option onto my Home page to see it since I don't normally have it, I removed it again, too many other things I would rather have in it's place.) nodding

I just received a bunch of acorns this morning (or late last night) and none of them are there. I agree Jack, there used to be at least 10 there. I changed nothing on my home page.

Say, is the "Announcements" home-page-item sometimes "Today's Popular Photo"?

I feel like I should keep an eye open for "announcements", but don't need "pretty pictures" on my home page.

I have Announcements on my home page and that's right where Today's Popular Photo is so I would say you are correct Rick. And Rick everyone needs pretty pictures on the home page Whistling Whistling Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious!

I'm probably in a Grinchy-mood today, and the photo was too cheerful when I scrolled down that far.

jmorth said:What happened to the tipped list, only 1 there, used to be 10?


One person is going around giving 1 acorns to numerous people.

The homepage works this way: it examines the 50 more recent tips and shows the ten most recent one from unique people. One person can't have their tip appear twice in that list. Since this one person handed out so many in a row, they are basically the only one who has given tips in the past 50 times.

It's a rare situation and once others start giving tips again the list will show more than just the one.

I received 5 last night from somebody else, but I guess the listed giver, with so many popped that one out?

I didn't know you could return acorn tips? Or do you mean you just gave the giver some?
