It is time to have the conversations about scaling up PEP.  And part of that is to make it so that PEP people that are not part of the permies.com staff can certify BBs.

After oodles of discussion, here is the current gob of thought.  

  - only people that have completed the badge AND the BB can certify the BB. (and, of course, permies.com staff)

  - to get PEP certification, you will need to verify a certain number of BBs for others.   Badge Bit Verifications.  BBVs.

         o PEP1: 10  
         o PEP2: 100
         o PEP3: 400  
         o PEP4: 1000

  - the system will be updated to track BBVs

  - for certain cases, a student might have their BBV requirement raised.   So if they submit a BB that is rejected, there is a minimum of 1 BBV added to get PEP certification.

So this is an idea that has been discussed deeply for several weeks and this is where we are, in general right now.  More info about non-staff certifying BBs coming soon.

Any suggestions we might not have thought of?
