I'm probably not understanding fully but here's a shot at an answer.

PEA is kind of an odd duck since it's not tied to a place or climate.  If there's a BB that would be the same in PEA as it is in PEP, the PEA badge wouldn't recreate it.  It would just say "Do any PEP BB to the PEP standard and get X points".  So one BB write-up in the PEP style would cover other PEXs.  

If someone creates a PEX for the jungle, they'd probably have many different BBs in the foraging badge than there are in PEP (Montana).  If any were a duplicate they could just write the same BB down in their badge and have it link to the PEP BB.  All the jungle specific ones would just be written up as PEJ BBs.

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.

I'm not really aiming at PEA for this, it just that PEA will be the next to get attention. I'm more thinking about when, let's say Jemima, posts a job offer, Jemima can put together a quick PEX list as a way to filter through people. If the BB is labeled PEP rather than jungle, prairie or tundra then Jemima needs to know exactly which PEX holds the specific BB she wants or there will need to be a master list of all BBs in all PEXs.

I'm proposing that the BBs get catergorised by the badge type (electricity vs plumbing) rather than PE type (PEP vs PEA).

If people want a modified version of "Chop and Drop - PEX BB gardening.sand.chopndrop", then they copy the original BB and append the version type, "Chop and Drop Jungle - PEX BB gardening.sand.chopndrop.jungle".
PEP wouldn't be affected as you still get to the right BB by going through the PEP index page.

My thinking is that PEP could effectively be the gold standard that Jemima can easily replicate.

Did that make more sense?

Maybe?  I think I need to read through it another time or two - not today...

Is there a BB somewhere for making biochar? I've done some searching but not finding one.

Good question, no there isn't a BB for that.  I don't think that's part of Paul's permaculture set.

I have a question about completing BBs... is it possible to submit projects I have already completed on our property to count for a BB and then eventually a badge. For example if I have piled up a nice stack of brush for animal/insect habitat and/or have stacked two rock pile toad/snake habitats in the garden or perhaps the water heater and pressure tank we replaced shortly after we moved in. Could I submit photos of those completed and get credit for them or will I have to do any/all of that again? If this has already been answered I apologize for bringing it back up but I have been unable to find it.

Hi Alex, you can get credit for work you did in the past as long as you have the required photos/video as you did the job.

Thanks Mike! Alternatively could I improve on the size or scope of something like a toad house and get credit for that then if I didn’t have a before photo?

Maybe?  Depends on how you do it.  If the old toad house helps support the construction of the new one then I'd think it wouldn't apply.
