== Userbox Order ==

I suggest changing the userbox list to be in a logical order (ex. sort ranks in order). Comments? --[[User:Yakatz|Yakatz]] 08:44, June 18, 2007 (EDT)

===Suggested change to naming convention of Userboxes===
+
-
 
+
-
I recommend we change all Userboxes from "User <Userbox name>" to simply, "<Userbox name>". Example:
+
-
 
+
-
:<code>'''From:''' ''MeritbadgeDotOrg:Userboxes/User District Award of Merit''</code>
+
-
:<code>&nbsp;&nbsp;'''To:''' ''MeritbadgeDotOrg:Userboxes/District Award of Merit''</code>
+
-
 
+
-
Reasoning: If we categorize Userboxes correctly, which we do, then they all end up under "U". If we make the above suggested change, we can have hundreds of Userboxes which will be much easier to find when browsing the category [[:Category:Userboxes]]. As it currently stands, it's pretty tough to wade through the few dozen we already have.
+
-
 
+
-
All Userboxes will be required to be placed in one of the two following places:
+
-
 
+
-
:<code>'''For all users:''' ''MeritbadgeDotOrg:Userboxes/<PAGENAME>''</code>
+
-
:<code>'''Personal ones:''' ''User:<USERNAME>/Userboxes/<PAGENAME>''</code>
+
-
 
+

I realize a few things, already... this change will:
+
-
 
+
-
*clearly involve some work, i.e., tracking down "what links here" for each UBX already in use; and
+
-
*have ''some'' affect on the results when using the Search feature; but, I don't think it will be a negative impact;
+
-
 
+
-
As such, I believe that this little ''project'' will be worth the effort. What say you all? Any ideas?&mdash;'''''[[User:RWSmith|RWSmith]]''''' ''[[MeritBadgeDotOrg:Bureaucrat|(Bureaucrat)]]'', 14:54, March 29, 2008 (EDT)

==Vigil, Powder Horn, Wood Badge==

How about a ''Vigil Honor'', ''Powder Horn'' and ''Wood Badge'' Userbox??? --[[User:Wagionvigil|Wagionvigil]]

==OA Lodge==
+
-
I would do this myself, but I have no idea how...
+
-
Something like:
+
-
This user is an Ordeal member in the order of the arrow in <nowiki>{{Lodge}}</nowiki> --[[User:Unionhawk|Unionhawk]] 21:07, November 19, 2007 (EST)

== Workpage -vs- Project ==
+
-
 
+
-
Hmmm, I just stumbled across this page...never had even heard about Workpages before, even as a long-tine Wikipedian. Anyway, I recently created [[MeritBadgeDotOrg:WikiProject Userboxes]], but now it seems to duplicate the existence of this page. Which method should we use? (Wikipedia uses Projects) [[User:Scouterdennis|Scouterdennis]] 07:46, March 10, 2008 (EDT)

:Well, I was just trying to figure out a way to say, "This is a draft page that the admins (and regulars) are trying to develop for the wiki... that's not Scouting-, but MediaWiki-related. I wasn't thinking about WikiProjects, partly due to my ignorance at the time.&mdash;'''''[[User:RWSmith|RWSmith]]''''' ''[[MeritBadgeDotOrg:Bureaucrat|(Bureaucrat)]]'', 14:54, March 29, 2008 (EDT)
