I see that you've undone a lot of what I did. Is there a reason that Mr. R's are being removed? And, is there a reason that the Worksheets page has been completely redone? I put a lot of time into that and it would have been courteous to have had some discussion over proposed changes. EagleForumFan 06:42, March 3, 2008 (EST)
- I apologize for any misunderstandings. Mr. R's content and links appear to not have been updated since 1997-2003. The requirements have changed since then. Meritbadge.org tries to only reference the current requriements. Many of the best links have been added to meritbadge.org directly. If there are links that are missing from meritbadge.org, we should add them here.
- The reason for the updated worksheets is that most of the old worksheets contained wording that did not match the current requriements. The BSA is updating as many as 22-26 merit badges a year and it had been a long time since some of the old worksheets were updated. The new worksheets have increased line spacing to allow enough room for younger Scouts to write. Plus the new worksheets include a wealth of links to online content. 59 include video lessons to teach skills. These changes were made with direction of the site moderators. It was my understanding that the previous author had declined further updates. The "new" worksheets had originally been posted at usscout.org for years.
- The site moderators have asked that doc file formats no longer be used as they can and have had requriements altered. So in the future the doc file versions will not be published per moderator request. Again, sorry for any misundertstandings. - Craig (Milominderbinder2) 07:42, March 3, 2008 (CST)
