1. thanks for the credit for the userboxes. if you look at my wikipedia user page, you will see why i like them so much [http://wikipedia.org/wiki/user:yakatz User:YAKatz].<br>

2. i am not sure who put this article together (it seems like you), but at the end, i am not sure where it is going from there (in the instructions). if you tell me what you planned to write, i might be able to finish it up.

:Nah; I tried also... to no avail. I do know there are some differences in the s/w run on "the" Wikipedia and MediaWiki. I'm still trying to learn what we can and cannot do with this code.

Thanks for keeping order here. I noticed that you eliminated 2 vandals on 6/10. Nice Job!!! --[[User:Stranger|Stranger]] 18:15, June 14, 2007 (EDT)

:Wow. Thanks for noticing and taking the time to say so. ''I'm humbled.'' We've really got a great core team of Sysops; but, this whole ''wiki'' thing is new to us, myself included. The site is new; ''--Thank you! Oh, wise and mighty Optimist!--'' hence the low vandal rate. But, we've been getting hammered with the ''bots''; so, I expecting things in the admin department's duties will be picking up, soon... Hopefully though, it'll be smooth and quite in the basement. --'''''[[User:RWSmith|RWSmith]]''''' 11:58, June 15, 2007 (EDT)

::You're welcome. I was wondering how you achieved the green box around the text at the top of the page. I was trying to format my talk page and could not figure it out. You can put it on my page or on this one, doesn't matter.--[[User:Stranger|Stranger]] 14:07, June 15, 2007 (EDT)

==Two Points==
+
-
First off, the page for [[Citizenship in the Community]]. I have a question. Do we need to have it recommend R rated movies? It could lead to problems later. Second, you reverted my removal of two links on the [[Hiking]] page. I removed one because it is broken and leads to an error, and I edited the other to make its destination clearer. Why did you revert it? Sorry if you had a good reason, I'm relatively new to the wiki so I was just wondering if those were like that for a reason. [[User:Epmatsw|Epmatsw]] 18:33, June 18, 2007 (EDT)
+
-
 
+
-
:First point... Good question. I'd ask that over on the [[Talk:Citizenship in the Community]] page.
+
-
:Second point... Since you also posted this over on [[Talk:Hiking]], see my reply there --'''''[[User:RWSmith|RWSmith]]''''' 18:54, June 18, 2007 (EDT)

+
-
== Userbox Templates Page ==
+
-
 
+
-
I suggest removing everything in Category:Userbox_Templates as it leads to confusion on the Category:Eagle_Scout_Users page and the templates dont do anything anyway.

+
-
== {{tl|tl}} ==
+
-
 
+
-
It's just shorthand to display a template with a link. Like. . .I create [[Template:Foo]]; I'd use {{tl|foo}} to show users how to use it on a page, and give them a link to the actual template so they can read the documentation. Is that what you meant?

== Sustainability requirements ==
-
It's only fair for me to tell you- this wiki is awesome. I had my doubts, but I love it here and can't wait to contribute more to this! Great work, RW. Really- fantastic job :D

Please add the requirements for Sustainability from [[Template talk:Sustainability/req]] to [[Template:Sustainability/req]]. Thanks! :) [[User:BartHumphries|BartHumphries]] 00:46, July 17, 2013 (EDT)

== Discontinued MB List ==
+
== New Venturing Awards added ==
-
Around a week and a half ago I proposed an idea for creating a list of discontinued merit badges and such and you said you'd get back to me in a few days or so about it. I was just wondering if I can go ahead and send you some stuff I've made now or hold off for a bit longer. Thanks; please respond asap. Take care.

:Don't worry about it; get to it when you can. I really can only do work with MBO during the weekends anyways, due to school and all. Nice template- see the stuff I wrote down. I categorized the merit badges in a different way (this was before you made your list) so if you want to see that one, just tell me.

== Pages that need creation ==
+
== Userbox Update ==
-
RW, is there a list of pages that need creation/large work? While I am an experienced Wikipedia guy, I find that working on a relatively new project is a bit different. I guess I just need a direction to focus my energies on. Thanks. &mdash;[[User:Scoutersig|Scouter]][[User talk:Scoutersig|Sig]] 11:10, September 13, 2007 (EDT)

[[Template:userbox]] currently requires an image to be associated with each user box. I created a userbox for planning the 2017 Jamboree which does not have a logo yet. The new mediawiki way to resolve this is to use a letter identifier. The userbox template is protected, so I can't update it to allow this usage. Could you update it or allow me to update it? [[User:Yakatz|Yakatz]] 13:02, September 2, 2014 (EDT)
-
:Funny you should mention that. Every time I "find" a page to create, and go over to Wikipedia to see how it's done... not just on the surface; but, really digging deep into the bowels of the thing... I find three more "things" that we need. Good grief!
+
-
:I will say this, though... I like to take only what we need (from Wikipedia) for our purposes here, though... i.e., K.I.S.S. For example, we don't need four levels of User warnings; and we certainly don't need 50 different kinds.
+
== Cyber Chip workbook typo ==
-
:I've unintentionally been putting it off; but, let's try to get some "collaboration" going on here... Templates, Help, Portals(?), Userboxes, Community portal, etc... where Contributors can share ideas, help each other out, etc. Contributors need to understand that there are two ways to help out:
+
The Scouts BSA Cyber Chip workbook [http://usscouts.org/advance/docs/ScoutsBSA-Cyber-Chip.pdf][http://usscouts.org/advance/docs/ScoutsBSA-Cyber-Chip.docx] says in its header:
-
:*First, there's the Main namespace&mdash;where everything Scouting-related goes. There are already lots of articles in there that are in serious need of attention... e.g., Stubs, Expand, Wikify.
+
-
:*Second, is all the other namespaces&mdash;MeritBadgeDotOrg (the "project" namespace), Templates, Help, Category, Image and, of course, User
+
-
:I'm sure, being an experienced Wikipedian, you're already aware of all this. But, I'm writing it out so others can benefit from our conversation, as well. So, the question is... '''"What do ''you'' like to do?"''' I, personally, like to work on the administrative/maintenance stuff... I figure there's plenty of folks who would rather work on building up the Scouting articles, anyhow.
+
No one may add or subtract from the official requirements found in '''''Scous BSAt''''' Requirements (Pub. 33216).
-
:I'm going to put up some collaboration pages later this evening, and will probably copy part of this over to the Community portal, as well. Thanks for asking. I'll add to my reply some more later.

Hey RWSmith, I'm sorry I've been gone for a while, but school started and I've been extremely busy. I've pretty much gotten it all under control now, so I'm back and ready for whatever you need for me to do. Once against I apologize for my inactivity and I hope that I haven't done (or haven't done) anything to cause problems on MBOrg. Could you send me some information on what's been going on lately and post it on my talk page? I'm happy to do whatever you want me to do, and I want you to know I'm happy to be back. Thanks.

Hello, welcome to my talk page!

If you want to leave a message, please do so at the bottom and using headings, for better formatting. You can do this by simply pressing the plus sign (+) on the top of this page. Don't forget to enter a relevant topic at the beginning of your post; and, please, always sign your messages posted in here by typing four tildes, like this, ~~~~ at the end of your posts.

Attention: Wikipedians, like everybody else, dislike fragmented discussions. So:

  • If you leave a comment for me, I will most likely respond to it in here, in this same page, on my talk page, as an effort to keep the entire conversation in one place.
  • By the same token, if I leave a comment on your talk page, always feel free to respond to it there, on your talk page.

Remember, we can each (individually) use our watchlists to keep track of when responses are made. Also, feel free to leave me an alert on this page about a comment you have left elsewhere that you want me to check out. Thank you! --RWSmith 04:31, April 6, 2007 (EDT)
