<span style="color:#FFFFFF; font-family:verdana; font-variant:normal; font-size:9pt">The number one thing to remember about minerals is: Don't overly concern yourself with them. Minerals are not this website's focus. Above all else, a good reputation goes a lot farther than some bytes in a database. A reputation of a spammer will always haunt you, regardless if you have a 'cool' glowing name or not. Minerals are just for fun.<br /><br />

<span style="color:lightyellow; font-family:verdana; font-weight:bold; font-size:10pt">Note: If you ask for minerals, you will be <span style="color:#FFCCCC">disemboweled.</span> and risk never seeing a mineral again.</span><br /><br />

<span style="color:#CCFFFF; font-family:verdana; font-style:italic; font-size:10pt">What are minerals?</span><br />
Minerals are the official currency of the StarEdit Network. They are used for games (note to self: code games), contest prizes, payments, bragging rights, and more.<br /><br />

<span style="color:#CCFFFF; font-family:verdana; font-style:italic; font-size:10pt">How do I get minerals?</span><br />
You can get minerals in many ways.<br />
The most common way of gaining minerals is by posting. Not all forums will give you minerals for posting. Check on the index that they have this icon <img src=""> first, which lets you know that the forum gives you minerals. The amount of minerals you recieve for making a post is determined by length, barring quotes and other restrictions.<br />
Minerals can be obtained through contests and games. There are player-run and administration-run contests which can offer minerals as prizes. There are also various games on the website which offer minerals, such as the 50/50 Raffle. You may also be rewarded by doing something good for the community, website, or administration. After all, members are free to send minerals as they please.<br /><br />

<span style="color:#CCFFFF; font-family:verdana; font-style:italic; font-size:10pt">What can I do with minerals?</span><br />
Minerals can be used for lots of things around the website. Some contests will require minerals as an entry fee. Minerals can be used to earn... more minerals. There is also the store, where you can buy various goods.<br /><br />

<span style="color:#CCFFFF; font-family:verdana; font-style:italic; font-size:10pt">Where did my minerals go?</span><br />
Any loss of minerals would be logged. You would know about it.<br /><br />

On a final note, people will always find ways to try and abuse this system or find glitches/bugs in games that allow them to gain more minerals than normal members. This is not tolerated and will only end up with your account getting wiped minerals and items, possibly into the negatives. Most things are logged and it isn't very hard to get caught. Besides, people who report abusable glitches usually are rewarded, and rewards always outweigh punishments.</span>
