Is there a way for a pollinator to "earn" the right to give more than one apple a day?  Other than just reporting the post for one?  Giving apples is pretty great :)

Glad you like giving apples.  It's my favourite part.

Sadly, the number of apples per day is limited.  But there's also PIE.  You can buy as much PIE as you like and give it out to posts you think are excellent.  

The current ratio is about 1 PIE slice to 20 apples, so giving out PIE is really meaningful.

Well, there is a way to be able to toss a few more apples. Have you noticed we have just a few master pollinators? They can give out three apples a day. One can become a master pollinator by contributing lots of super awesome posts that earn thumbs and apples, but as with anything, there are no guarantees. If memory serves me correct, there can be three master pollinators each month.

Thanks for the info. It's something to shoot for :)  Getting apples is great, but i think giving them is even better.
 
How do they get the deer to cross at the signs? Or to read this tiny ad?
