If all the BBs were written as PEX BBs, there might be issues with a BB called "Chop and Drop - PEX BB gardening.sand.chopndrop". Is it the one for chopping jungle stuff and dropping it? Is it the prairie one for scything grasses and dropping? Is it the tundra one that does something else? Those are all poor examples but I think we need the PEB or PEW or PEP on the BB to specify how it's different.

Not many PEP BBs require you to be in the picture. They very rarely require the images of others and if they do you can smudge their faces.

If you don't have a blur tool, you can just put giant emojis over their faces, or put purple hearts that cover their faces, etc.

Does a 12’ hugelkultur (Straw) also give you credit for the 6’ hugelkultur (Sand)?
Nope. Unless specifically stated, doing one BB does not partially count towards another BB within that aspect.
Harvesting apples for the Sand badge of Foraging doesn’t count towards the “Forage 100,000 calories” in the Wood badge of Foraging
Baking a pizza for Food Prep Sand could also earn you the “Cook with a Rocket Oven” in Rocket Sand and “Prepare a meal for 8” in the Community Sand badges.
After growing 1 million calories for Wood you need to grow an additional 4 million calories for Iron
