Additional notes on page formatting

Requirements pages for Ranks, Awards, and Merit Badges have a somewhat formal structure. Award requirements are usually listed first under the == Award requirements == heading. The next section will most likely be == Notes ==. The page should end with == Help with these requirements == and == External links ==. Additional headings can be inserted as needed if they would be of considerable benefit. Based on the above, the following four headings will be used most often with any additional headings inserted between the first two and the last two:

== Award requirements ==

== Notes ==

== Help with these requirements ==

== External links ==
