Bank Info and Tools
Since there seem to be a lot of question regarding the bank and interest, here are some answers. Most of us already know this, but it could be useful to some who recently purchased a Premium Membership.

• The interest rate is 3.75% compounded daily
• The time of your last deposit or withdrawal will be the time the interest is next compounded on the following day
• You need to have 125 points in your pocket to view your balance or access points to withdrawal
• Points in the bank cannot be stolen by the "Thief" tool

Here is a link to an easy compound interest calculator that you can use to make projections or check your balance in theory if you are short on points:

Compound Interest Calculator

To use:
• Enter your bank point total in the "Principal" box
• Fill in the "Interest Rate" box with 3.75
• Enter the number of days you want to project in the "Years to Grow" box
• Hit the "Calculate" button

Here's is an even easier calculator that Yeldarb made:

Thankyou! I was trying to use that converter, but was putting the years as 0.83 for 30 days (instead of just "30"-I assumed it had to be in years).

To be honest, I think all three will work. Once you type in a color and hit continue or proceed, there will be a confirmation screen where you'll see the new color. (and then one more click to finalize the choice after that) Some colors work in Firefox and some don't. So I would suggest trying all three to see if they work in Firefox, if that is the browser you use.

For instance, the grey color I selected using 666666 only shows up in IE when I'm at work, and it's orange when I'm at home on Firefox. I think I may have read that using the pound sign helps with getting colors to work in Firefox.

Check it out and let me know which ones work, etc. I'd like to know for future reference.

Try it out, it wont take effect (or take your points) until you confirm it.
