Hi dudes and dudies. Does anyone know what "the feeding a hungry child" exactly is and how does it work?
Thanks!

Check out this link

for the details about "feed your brain, feed a hungry child"


Basically the more you use TFD, the more neurons you get and the better chances you have of earning a meal. Every meal you earn is donated to a hungry child.

Even after reading all the materials, I have not been able to figure the answer. It comes automatically after few days. The calculations are not clear.

The more you use TFD for browsing, playing games and reading, you will accumulate neurons at certain stages you are given badges and the "spoon" which is contributory to feeding children. I don't think they are given haphazardly. There must be calculations by the program computer. From my experience, those who regularly browse, learn words, read articles and also play match up, wordhub etc. are more likely to feed more children - i.e get more spoons. Exact calculations are not known or at least not published anywhere.

I am sure there is a formula for achieving a 'spoon' but like Chandrasekhar says it is not clear nor published anywhere. From my experience, I found that if you achieve brain activity level close to 200% and continue earning neurons, you usually get one 'spoon'. Also sometime back, I saw in a forum that 'spoons' are given to only one person in a particular time slot, that is, one who achieves the criteria first in that slot. Cant remember what the time slot was or find the thread. I generally try to keep my brain function at 200 and keep playing www and have achieved a 'spoon'. But sometimes no matter what you do, the 'spoon' just wont appear.

Also have noticed that playing Wordhub, even on the TFD homepage doesn't make the 'spoon' appear. Not sure if that is the case or just my luck.

I've also noticed that spending hours on the forums answering questions etc produces less in 'brain activity' and 'neurons' than messing around playing 'hangman' for a few minutes.

It seems that the whole emphasis is playing games, not learning.

I have to differ with you DragOnspeaker on one point. I do not play the 'games', however, I read all the articles that interest me and participate in the 'Spelling Bee' and 'Match Words', which I think are brain exercises and I enjoy very much....I accumulate neurons in that way. I have accumulated many spoons, and I agree that it is because I try to maintain my brain level at 200%.

I am a little bewildered how you can earn the other 'badges'—silver, bronze, etc. Although I read most articles I have not earned any badges lately. I personally do not care for 'Word Hub' or have time (or wish), to participate in the forum, and I find the horoscope useless. I do play 'Hangman' with my 11 yr. old grandson, it provokes him to think and he enjoys it.

I would like to know how else one can accumulate neurons. I spend about 45 minutes a day on TFD (if that), that's all I have time for.
