Talk:East Sussex Scout County (The Scout Association)

This page needs revision. (a) It is not an encyclopedia entry it is an advert. (b) It is part of but does not refer to a much larger category. There are several Scout related pages inc. The Scout Association, which itself needs revising. It would reflect better on modern scouting if someone could get their act together and take ownership of sorting these out.

1st Ewhurst in East Sussex and Surrey?
1st Ewhurst had its first meeting (in 1913) at Ewhurst Place, near Robertsbridge, East Sussex. There is record from 2005 of a 1st Ewhurst group in Surrey , but not one in East Sussex. I think these are two separate groups, but I am prepared to be mistaken. Kingbird 04:13, 6 April 2007 (UTC)
I have consulted with another editor - outside of Scouting. Assuming good faith, I'm afraid that I cannot see that these new sites fit in with Wikipedia as they appear effectively nothing more than a list of branches of The Scout Association. For further information on this please see the section Wikipedia is not a soapbox on Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not, notably the section on advertising. Even when open to Groups of all Associations these pages were of suspect standard, and closing them to independent Groups has not helped in any way.
I suggest returning them to their original format, a new format that allows all Scouting in a County to be reported, or, alternatively, deleted as inappropriate. -- DiverScout (talk) 19:00, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
