WellyWales: It's not a fixed score, it depends on your BKR at the time. When your BKR is low, even a relatively bad place in a pond can gain you points. When your BKR is high even a first place may not raise it much higher. The only way to see who gained what is to store the pond just before and after the last bet and compare. In ponds this is easy since you know in advance when the pond will end. (well, more or less, since there can be multiple falls in a turn and server time freezes) And by the way, the whole BKR system is of questionable value for ponds.
alexlee: my guess would be that she made her bid right before she turned pawn and before you made your bid. I'm in an eleven day pond right now with a pawn, I hate those because I feel that it would be smarter to wait just in case they decide to renew their membership
Vikings: I am sure in this one Today is the first day of the rest of the mess. she was a pawn when her last bid was 1220. Next time she had a bid of 1500. I'll just continue to watch for now. I don't suppose there is any way to tell what day someone turned into a pawn?
If a member changes to a pawn can they now continue to play if they were already in a pond? If so when did this start and was it posted anywhere? Seems like if a rule changes it should have been posted but if it was I can not find where?
well, there are ponds that'll start in 96 days with >30 players... and most that will start within the next month have enough to start... and i didnt have a brain rook for a while so i'm not in the loop and trying to get more ponds started ;)
