I think the perks for doing PEP is pretty big, but we are trying to get the alpha version of the PEP book filled out a bit.   Most of the sand badge BBs have been created.  And there are a few more to create.   But more importantly, as the first person or two tries a BB, we are discovering that we need a little further polish.   And for some BBs, we need those first pictures to help guide people.  

So we are sweetening the pot a bit.   For now through October 31, 2019, we are offering "points" - and those points can be cashed in.   And these points are retroactive, so every person that has done any of this stuff before now, gets points for that too.  


Earn Points

1 point for creating the BB page
1 point for being the first to get certified for a BB
1/2 a point for being the second
1/3 of a point for being the third
1 point per badge


Spend Points

1 point per PEP eBook gift code
1 point for any microdoc gift code
1 point for two pieces of permie PIE
8 points for a full PIE (12 pieces)
2 points for Building a Better World in Your Backyard eBook gift code
1 point for raven's book about edible cleaners
4 points for Rocket Ovens DVD as HD streaming gift code
4 points for the World Domination Gardening HD streaming gift code
4 points for the big podcast mega gob

10 points for the rocket mass heater 8-DVD set as HD streaming gift code

20 points for the full 177 hours of PDC and ATC video gift code

6 points for 2 decks of cards and US shipping
20 points for 12 decks of cards and US shipping

6 points for Building a Better World in Your Backyard book and US shipping
24 points for a dozen copies of  Building a Better World in Your Backyard book and US shipping

24 points for the rocket mass heater 8-DVD set with US shipping
10 points for the Rocket Ovens DVD with US shipping
12 points for the World Domination Gardening 3-DVD set with US shipping

25 points for the gapper fee - (access to the bootcamp)

40 points 5-day stay in the red cabin, the love shack or the tipi (each has a rocket mass heater)



Any suggestions to add here?   Any questions about this?

Paul, am I right that if someone wanted to claim Badge Bit points, they'd make a post something like this?

I have earned 5.49 points by:

  - creating https://permies.com/wiki/102584/PEP-BB-textile-sand-pillow BB
  - first to complete https://permies.com/wiki/102584/PEP-BB-textile-sand-pillow
  - creating https://permies.com/t/101122
  - first to complete https://permies.com/t/101122
  - second to complete https://permies.com/wiki/105490/PEP-BB-textile-sand-darn
  - third to complete https://permies.com/wiki/105756/PEP-BB-textile-sand-wbasket
  - second to complete https://permies.com/t/105498/PEP-BB-textile-sand-twine
  - second to complete https://permies.com/t/105492/PEP-BB-textile-sand-patch

I would like to redeem them with:

  - 1 point for raven's book about edible cleaners
  - 4 points for Rocket Ovens DVD as HD streaming gift code



Does one need to post the direct link to their post that got certified, or is it okay to just post a link to the thread that one got certified in?

Some of these are things you might already need to do, like:

Clean the gutters (https://permies.com/wiki/112921/PEP-BB-homesteading-sand-big)

Clean the inside of fridge (https://permies.com/wiki/112676/PEP-BB-nest-sand-alice)

Wash the outside of your car (https://permies.com/wiki/112725/PEP-BB-nest-sand-alice)

Install a CO2 detector (https://permies.com/wiki/108946/PEP-BB-homesteading-sand-monoxide)

Install a smoke detector (https://permies.com/wiki/108853/PEP-BB-homesteading-sand-smoke)

Paint a rusty part on equipment (https://permies.com/wiki/110160/PEP-BB-homesteading-sand-big)

Clean your freezer (https://permies.com/wiki/112679/PEP-BB-nest-sand-alice)

Repair a window screen (https://permies.com/wiki/108478/PEP-BB-homesteading-sand-screen)

Maintain a trail (https://permies.com/wiki/99624/PEP-BB-earthworks-sand-trail)

Unclog a sink (https://permies.com/wiki/110453/PEP-BB-nest-sand-jeeves)

All of these are BBs that no one has completed yet! If you take pictures of yourself doing them, you'll get a point for each. Do 6 things like that, and you'll be able to get 2 deck of cards mailed to you, or the Build a Better World, or a mix of a bunch of other things!

This is my current plan.  And they would create this post sometime in november.

They would need to have links to the posts.

A month and a half to go! I'm trying to think of what Badge Bits I can do in that time to learn more cool stuff, AND get more fun stuff!

These are generous perks, and thank you for offering them. I'm using this as an incentive to start getting caught up on some overdue chores... so it's a win-win. :)  I see in your summary that for physical (as opposed to downloadable) books/DVDs you only mention shipping to the US, and I was wondering if for some additional points or a fee for postage you would be able to ship to Canada?

Thanks Andrea for bumping this thread back up.  I was going to remind people of it yesterday but I forgot.  

There are lots of BBs that no one has gotten yet.  So you get a full point for being the first to post to them!  And if you think you've got what it takes to write a BB, there are probably a lot of Straw level badges that could be typed up for a point a piece.  But if you're going to do those, please follow the format of the other BBs so we don't have to massage them excessively :)  And maybe do one or a couple so we can check them over before you do 20 that need a lot of work...

25 days to go!!!
