As we develop the Straw, Wood and Iron level of the PEP badges it's becoming likely that there will be innumerable projects where someone says something along the lines of "I welded up a merry-go-round.  Can I get points for that?  

Since it is a welding project, we'd hereby like it to be submitted as an Oddball project in the applicable badge thread.  This way we won't overload the regular Oddball badge with these sorts of awesome projects.

If your project is reasonable enough that we should consider making it a BB for the badge (roundwood teeter totter?), please post to the badge thread and explain your thinking.  

Pro tip:  It's preferred to have your creative project be a BB since the points are easier to get.  Points in a BB are based on how hard it is for a talented newbie to complete them.  Oddball points are based on how hard it is for an expert to complete them with a bit of luck.  So a given project will generally yield twice as many points if it's a BB instead of an oddball.
