An explination about the site currency.
|Beside your username at the top of the site there is a Jewel counter.
This represent the number of Pearls, Diamonds, Sapphires and Rubies you currently hold.
1 Pearl is worth 100 diamonds
1 Diamond is worth 100 sapphires
1 Sapphire is worth 100 rubies
So if you have 1000001 Rubies, you will see 1 Pearl and 1 Ruby.
This system was put in place roughly a year ago. Recently I hit 1000 Pearls, and I decided the algorithm was not serving a meaningful purpose.
As you can see among the top 16 people, there is a wild difference. Also consider that 90% of people had less than 10000.
| jewels |

| 221936 |

| 222092 |
| 1036501 |
| 159421 |
So the only option was to reset this to zero for everyone, and start over with a fair algorithm that scales linearly.
There are currently 3 ways your Jewel count increases.
1. For every page view, you get 1 Ruby.
2. For every day you use the site, you get a number of Jewels based on your current rank.
Here is the current algorithm: ((((rank / 10) - ((rank % 10) / 10 )) * 1000) + ( rank * 10 ))
In English, this works out to your Rank * 10
+ a Bonus of 10 Sapphires for every 10 Ranks you've reached.
