the original system of 10 donationcredits per 1 US dollar seemed like a good idea at the time but is unnesc. confusing.
we will be moving to a 1:1 equivelance in the next couple of days.

if all of the conversions go smoothly then it shouldn't inconvenience anyone and you'll just notice that your credits are now expressed as dollars (or partial dollars).  so if you had 100 credits, now you will have 10.00 credits (equal to $10).

hopefully this will be simpler for everyone.

Actually, I did too. To be completely honest. Perhaps you could make an option for each user to select how they are displayed?

note you can still give out fractions of a dollar.

As long as I can still give out fractions of a dollar it works for me. I wasn't really confused under the old system but the new one isn't confusing either. If some people had problems then I understand the change may be necessary.

I think that this simplifies the whole issue and is easier to understand...and find that it's easier to manage...

I have to admit I was confused when the donation credits first were implemented. I was under the impression that 100 credits was $1.00 and not $10.00. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised when I found out otherwise.

I think moving to a 1:1 system will be less confusing to newcomers that might make the same assumption that I did.
