Thanks whoever gave me pie, I am confused about how it works and how to use it, maybe I can figure it out but other people may also be confused.

I found out I had pie because I got an email saying my pie is go in to expire, buy more.  Do I lose my apples too if I lose my pie?  I didn't want to buy pie.

Then I wish I knew which threads are pie threads, I don't see an obvious thing saying "I am a pie thread!!!". So I'm not sure I have read the pie threads or if I've commented in them or if really I've been living inside one giant pie my entire life and just never knew it.

Also I would love to thank the person who gave me pie but I don't know who it is.  Maybe it was emailed to me and I just missed it.  If it got purple moosaged then I think I'd see it for sure.

Not a big deal anyof this bit if it can be tweaked maybe helpful to people, esp super non-techie people.

Thanks for doing all you do!

Also maybe it would be good if I could save my pie for later and not activated it automatically?  So I'd have time to read about pie and understand it?  Or is it supposed to push people to buy things on a timeline?  Thanks!

Having PIE expire makes sense lore wise and community wise.

Lore: You make PIE with apples. You can only harvest so many apples from your orchard in any given time. Unless you have an ungodly amount of preservatives in your PIE, it probably wouldn't last long.

Community: You are given x amount of apples per month (the harvest) by the system. If you have enough apples, they turn into PIE. You can give either apples or slices of PIE to other people who create good content (posts, replies to posts, digital market products, etc etc). Some people offer up their goods on the digital market for the price of your PIE. You can also purchase PIE if you want.

Because PIE expires, it encourages people to support other people who post good content and not hord their PIE, because those people can purchase stuff on the digital market and send PIE to others.

Hello everyone,

The permies community is very important.  There are good things that happen here that should be happening everywhere!  In support of the people who help make all those good things happen, I would like to offer a 5% discount on any set of arched trusses ordered by a PIE person.  For more information, you can look at the business thread here in the forums: https://permies.com/t/85623/CruxHomes-Affordable-Passive-Home-Design#704808

And there's a ton of information on https://CruxHomes.com

In addition to the 5% discount, any PIE person can have four hours of green building consultation with me for free, whether you buy anything from me or not.  I'm happy to answer any question I can, anytime...

CJ@CruxHomes.com
833-CruxHomes (278-9466)

Here's a slideshow so you can see what a CruxHome looks like:

So now i have the PIE icon to be able to give PIE to nice people who write great posts. Must be my reward from the recent Kickstarter.
But how do I keep track of how many slices I currently have?
I checked "My Stuff" and "My Profile" with no luck". Thanks

Apparently I didn't have PIE, until a very nice person just now gave me a slice. Thanks Tyler.
So now when I click the PIE button, it shows my pieConsole/list.
COOOL.

People who aren't using pie don't know what to do with it when someone gives them pie. Please put basic information at the top of the email and the post at https://permies.com/wiki/pie or send us to a post that explains it.

Knowing the pie someone gave you is expiring does not help you know what to do with it. Maybe we should give it to someone else before it expires?? Sometimes, we have too much going on to dedicate time to sorting out what we don't understand. Make it easy and more people may decide to buy some.

pusang,

if you want to give it to a person go to their profile and look for a pie symbol on the right hand top.  Click and it will give you a place to send them a message.

If you find a post by the person you want to give pie to, there is a pie symbol to left left of "quote".  Click and it will give you a place to send them a message.

I hope this answered your question.
