I know it's the wrong time to ask questions, with the kickstarter starting and such, but I 'm gonna leave it here, and look for an answer whenever there is time:

For the BB pages on tinctures, since the tincture is not actually ready to be bottled in its finished form till weeks later, wwhat do we want students to post as proof of completion? (for the other concoctions it's a picture of the finished prroduct in its labeled jar).

Thank you.

I'm thinking it might be necessary to wait until the two weeks is over? Which seems really annoying, but since this is all about making the preparations correctly and safely, I think we might need the picture of it all the way finished. I'll let Paul make that call, though.

all the way finished.

It is okay if it takes a few months to complete a BB.

Do we post for BB certification on this thread, or wait for individual BB threads to occur?  Do you need help creating threads for each?

Pretty sure Paul wants us to wait until the thread is made, though I can manually move a post to the thread once it's made...but it's a bit of work and I might forget to. So, probably best to wait, but if you really need to post it before you forget or lose the pictures, I can work with that, too.

I would be WONDERFUL to have help making these BBs! Just follow the format of the other ones, and we can turn it into a wiki and add in any formatting that was confusing. So, yes! Please help make Badge Bit threads if you can! You'll get a ton of apples and pie for it, too!!!

I'm in no big hurry, but I'll pitch in where I see that one needs starting!
