O.K., I'm pretty new at "permies", so, a dumb question. What does PEP the acronym for and what is PEP?
AND, to me a BB is what comes out of the end of a BB gun. What is your version of "BB" and what is it?

It's a good idea. There is a similar mentorship on Wikipedia: Wikipedia:Adopt-a-user/Adoptee's Area/Adopters which I used as a beginner editor.

Ash, I would be happy to mentor someone, but first I do need to be shown how to do it.

Hey Jesse, welcome to permies. Are you able to see the 'glossary' at the top of the original post in this thread?  I don't know if the grey color I used is too hard to see.

742 - I would like to be one.
743 - I'm a homesteader educator so there is a lot of things I could teach.
744 - I currently do livestream on dlive, but I also have a discord channel. Zoom is possible just harder for me to do in the field.
745 - I think this is a great idea and we can grow and make it happen pretty awesomely

This is the first post I've seen that finally actually provides a clue as to what a BB is - Badge Bit.

I'd love to have a mentor.  I am hoping to get a bit more land to do animals and such, but in the meantime, I am learning so much on my 1/3 acre in the suburbs.and my 6 kids are getting so into it as well.  These PEP things have been so much fun.  I'm pretty new here, so I'm still trying to find the master list, but in the meantime, I'm enjoying going over everyone's top 20.  Thanks so much for doing this!!  I certainly learn by doing and this is helping me to get up and get doing!!

Ok, I'm going to try the first BB Club zoom call Wednesday, July 22nd at 8am Mountain Time.  There'll probably also be some mentoring on PEP, too.

This first week, we'll be working on the Community Sand BB: Make a Map: https://permies.com/wiki/101705/pep-community/PEP-BB-community-sand-map

Time zone converter here: https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html?iso=20200722T140000&p1=3358&p2=tz_gmt&p3=51&p4=133&p5=3138&p6=246&p7=236&p8=22

Tell your friends! Join the fun; it's collective map-making time.

The details are here: https://permies.com/p/1126576

The 22 aspects of PEP. Is this what you're looking for Claire?
 
Why is the word "abbreviation" so long? And this ad is so short?
