    According to the 2009 printing of the Boy Scout Requirements, bugler is now a qualifying position of responsibility for Eagle Rank. See requirement 4 on page 16 of BSA publication 33216. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jkb973 (talkcontribs) 14:08, August 9, 2009. (Please, sign and date your posts on talk pages.)

    This was a printing error. Bugler is not a qualifying position of responsibility for Eagle. —RWSmith (Bureaucrat), 15:04, November 2, 2011 (EDT)

    Category:Varsity Scout leader recognition awards

    Shouldn't [[Category:Varsity Scout leader recognition awards]] be something like [[Category:Varsity Scout awards]], instead? —RWSmith (Bureaucrat), 01:21, March 23, 2010 (EDT)

    History section

    Deleted all copy-pasted text from Wikipedia... we shouldn't copy-paste swaths (for lack of a better word) of "information" from Wikipedia; a quote is sometimes acceptable, but must be referenced/cited. Quoting swaths of official BSA info is allowed, per BSA. —RWSmith (Bureaucrat), 12:57, April 28, 2010 (EDT)

    Eagle Plan Worksheet

    The Eagle Scout Plan document's links don't work in Protected mode. What is the unprotect password? --Proud2b4family 12:32, November 2, 2011 (EDT)

    I assume the creator of this document (Craig Lincoln) didn't want it to be modified (except, of course, for the user-fillable form fields) — hence, the reason he password-protected the document. I'm sorry, but I don't know the password to "unlock" the document's properties. If you could give me an idea of what –exactly– you want to change, I'll see what I can do about making a new one. (See next paragraph.)
    FWIW, with all the changes that are in the new Guide To Advancement, BSA Pub. 33088 (supersedes Advancement Committee – Policies and Procedures), I'll be looking for an updated Eagle Plan Worksheet Microsoft Word DOC document. —RWSmith (Bureaucrat), 15:04, November 2, 2011 (EDT)

    Requirement 5

    Minor edits

    Workbook title does not have "leadership" in it anymore. It's just "Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook."
    Document number is 512-927. The page lists it as 521-927.

    New required merit badges

    h) will change from "Environmental Science" to "Environmental Science OR Sustainability" upon the summer 2013 release of the Sustainability merit badge. There will be a new m) merit badge on 01 January 2014 -- Cooking will then be required. Note, it will not be a "everyone working on the old requirements may finish under those, new people working on Eagle have to hit the new requirements", if a Scout doesn't finish Eagle by the last day of 2013, the Scout must complete the Cooking merit badge to become an Eagle. 21 merit badges are still required, but another required merit badge isn't being removed. Instead of 12 required and 9 elective for Eagle, the new numbers will be 13 required and 8 elective. See and BartHumphries 13:00, November 25, 2012 (EST)

    2016 requirments for egale scout rank is incorect.

    The requirments for the 2016 rank is incorrect. Starting at #3 the numbers are incorrect for the requirments numbers. Then you are missing the requirement for the egale project which should be requirement #5 which is the same as the old requirement list and has not change at all. Please fix this asap.

    Formatting mistake on list of Eagle-required merit badges.

    In requirement #3, the list of Eagle-required merit badges has a formatting mistake for the first one. It shows as "(a) [[First Aid]," (missing second closing square bracket), but it should be "(a) [[First Aid]]," (added a closing square bracket). nicouds 18:05, June 3, 2017 (EDT)

    Fixed on July 29, 2018 — Nicouds 23:51, December 9, 2018 (EST)
