This is a guideline for inclusion of pages in various namespaces. The intent is to keep it short and clear, and if possible, stable. An important goal is directing people to correct places for what they want to do.

See the MeritBadgeDotOrg:Criteria for acceptable external links policy for details on acceptable content.

Main namespace

Includes articles with only verifiable information about general Scouting advancement related topics.

Portal:

Category:

Includes Special:Categories used for grouping of other pages, which are useful to the project as a whole.

Image:

Includes free images and copyrighted images used under the MeritBadgeDotOrg:Copyright policy and MeritBadgeDotOrg:Usage standards policy concerning "fair use doctrine" in articles where they are necessary.

MeritBadgeDotOrg:

Includes policy, process, and other pages useful to the project as a whole, but which are not a part of the encyclopedia.

Template:

Includes templates used for inclusion on other pages, which are useful to the project as a whole.

User:

Special:
