Some folks had asked for more colors, so poof--I added more colors. Each color basically represents the number that used to be on the ribbon, so the numbers were no longer necessary.

Of course, now that the colors don't represent the number of zeros that come after the number, I needed a different way to express that and did so by changing what the ribbon looks like. A ribbon with just the "flower" part and not the strips of ribbons behind it mean there are fewer finds than a ribbon with just one strip behind it, which is fewer than if there are two ribbons behind it (which is what all ribbons used to have).

I haven't figured out how to change it once someone reaches 10,000 finds, though. I still need to do something with that.

That just got WAY too complicated for me. Maybe I need to get some sleep.

Aw. A couple of days ago you were saying how great the purple ribbon looked and today I noticed that *I* have a purple ribbon. "How cool am I?" I thought. Now that I know that you're handing them out to any old schmoe with 73 finds, they don't seem so exciting any more.

But it's just an ugly ribbon with no decorative strips behind it anymore. It's still not the cute purple ribbon I was talking about. You'll need at least 7,000 finds for that one. ;o)

The one's without the ribbons just look like pies - all different colored pies! Some colors of pie I would never eat, but that's what they look like....How about some ice cream too? :-)

You can hover over the ribbon and see the total number just like you always could.

Wait! So, does this mean I won't get my "full" ribbon back until I get at least 1,000 finds?

Oh, why oh why did you do this to me?!?

Me too, with my 119 finds in 7 weeks as a member. This sight is getting so extensive it would almost scare newbies away. It's really overwhelming...
