Highlighted Eagle-required merit badges

I've highlighted the Eagle Required MBs with bold font to have them stand out. Thoughts? --John (aka ronin718)

Great idea! --Optimist 12:47, March 30, 2007 (EDT)

Merit badge article names

I think that the Merit Badge articles should be renamed to include the words "Merit Badge" in the title. Comments? Scouterdennis 08:28, March 10, 2008 (EDT)

I retract that suggestion, but have found a "workaround" in the Infobox template that satisfies my aesthetic concerns. Scouterdennis 19:34, March 21, 2008 (EDT)

Scuba Diving

Are there plans to add Scuba Diving merit badge to this page? I believe this is an approved badge. Missylou2who 11:48, March 12, 2010 (EST)

Somebody took care of this. —RWSmith (Bureaucrat), 12:46, May 9, 2010 (EDT)


Geocaching Merit Badge—Revised Requirements 2/24/2010. Just came down from National, and should be added ASAP. Also, this is NOT eagle Required (though I HIGHLY Recommend it). --The Steaks

Here is a stub: Geocaching, but it still needs work as of this edit.

Updated. See Geocaching and Talk:Geocaching. —RWSmith (Bureaucrat), 12:46, May 9, 2010 (EDT)

Scouting Heritage

Is Scouting Heritage going to be added to the Merit Badge list? Requirements are out and everything. jbowen 8:59, May 8, 2010 (MST)

Done. —RWSmith (Bureaucrat), 12:46, May 9, 2010 (EDT)
Is it supposed to be before Scholarship (not if alphabetically)? Or does it have an assigned number? ----EagleForumFan 01:13, May 30, 2012 (EDT)

2018 updates needed for Introduction text

In the Introduction, the quoted texts from the Boy Scout Requirements booklet and the Guide to Advancement are slightly out of date (e.g., use of unit leader versus Scoutmaster, removing references to Varsity Scouts, adding additional references to Venturers and Sea Scouts, etc.), although the last paragraph show from the Boy Scout Requirements booklet has changed substantively. Since the page is locked to prevent editing, admins will have to make any updates. — nicouds 05:15, March 14, 2018 (EDT)
