included is my entire program...

i know exactly what the problem i am having with this is, i just cant figure out the logic to fix it... ive tried about 10 different things so far.

I have it so you can input which position you start at... then go around the circle, the only problem is that the starting position is the lowest position held then it will repeat other nodes.

ie: if you start at position 5 and have 15 people in a circle... once 15 is hit, it resets back to number 5 ( not 1)... how do i change this so that it will read from say 1 to 15 starting at 5 instead of 5 to 15 starting at 5.

the code snippet where i think the problem is located is at the very bottom.

thanks alot.
