How can I add my hardiness zone to my profile?

What is the pie?

What are apples and strawberries and how do you get them or give them?

Great questions.

At the top of the page, there should be a link to "My Profile" there you have the choices to change your details like signatures and hardiness zone.

Everything you ever wanted to know about PIE PIE gives you access to special content. You can buy PIE with money or earn it by writing things that are useful. The thread tells you everything.

I'm not certain about strawberries, but Here's where you learn all about apples!

Any other questions, feel free to ask. Although, it might be helpful to have a look at this first: How Permies Works. I love that thread. It has everything.

Pie's new. It's a combination of a way for people to fund the empire and show appreciation to other forum members for things they do. It's nice to have a way to recognize exceptionally helpful or informative permies. You can buy a pie (or just a slice) and link for that is at the top of the page. You can give away your pie (link for that at the top right of each post) and you can receive pie from others.

There's a few perks (access to a special forum, product discounts, extra forum privileges) that come with having pie. I expect many more to accumulate over time.

Apples can only be given out by people with special privileges gained by taking on responsibilities like moderating the forums. I'm not sure who everyone is with that power. Like the pie it can be received for helpful forum posts, but it is also awarded for off forum assistance to Paul's World Domination goals. If you get enough apples (I think it's 15 right now) you are allowed to visit the cider press where discussion of highly controversial topics is allowed.
