Scouting missplaced on this template?[edit]

I find it odd that South African Scout Association should be on a "South African topics" template. It doesn't look right to me in that template's "Culture" section: "Art · Cinema · Cuisine · Education · Language · Literature · Music · Poets · Public holidays · Religion · Sport · Media · Scouts." One particular proper noun youth organization does not compare with Education or Literature or Media or other topics. I think it should be removed. Perhaps it could be linked from wherever Education leads to, instead. Or add Society or Organizations to the template and include the proper noun scouting organization in that article. doncram (talk) 02:29, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

I agree, and I will remove it. - htonl (talk) 06:55, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Revision of Template[edit]

I have completely revised this template and its format and have modelled it on Template:United States topics since it is well-organized, presented and fairly comprehensive. Feedback for the new revision is welcome.

I strongly recommend that red-linked topics not be removed from this template as I believe that it may encourage Wikipedians and readers to create these articles themselves. In the meantime, I am going to see if I can find more topics that should be included in this template to make it more complete. --User:DiscipleOfKnowledge (talk) 00:51, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

Does anybody know how to display list elements in alphabetical order? I think this is required for templates and would make the template more navigable for readers. --User:DiscipleOfKnowledge (talk) 01:20, 2 June 2011 (UTC)
