It would be much more useful if there was a way to track the monthly stipend so you know if you got it or not. I just realized that since I got LTS last November I honestly don't think ive received 2500 worth of zen in that time but who knows theres no way to check. lets just hope they will be honest and verify.
I usually get my stipend 5 days or so into each month. I mysteriously received 500 Zen 5 days before the turn of this month though I didn't know I had missed any. This thread would seem to explain why.
