Right there are 16 common points on the compass. 32 on the advanced scale. If you have a look at the moon on Tuesdays, you'll notice that you must multiply 32 by 16 and then divide that by the number of shooting stars on Wednesday to figure out the number for a gem.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Don't forget to compensate for the lunar influence!

Ah yes. If the moon is waxing, add 10%, if it is waning however, you must subtract 24% precisely.

Indeed, and if it is 'wide' awake multiply your result by one.

Nah, it's good as it is, as it takes all factors into account. Post count having priority, then having how long you've been here for, and how many gems you have.
Not as complicated as the moon theory.

(If the moon is happy, add 13 lucky points. If the moon's sad, subtract 7 points.)

When the moon gets covered up by the sun, add the avagadro's number!
