Listing of Individual Units[edit]

Seems like the listing of units makes this article less readable. With only 1) Pennsylvania Dutch Council Harvest District and 2) Bucks County Lenape District listing it is also incomplete and not reliable. I suggest that all references to individual units be stricken. Any thoughts? Mitico 01:02, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

  • I agree. --evrik (talk) 03:40, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
  • I deleted Individual Units Mitico 21:20, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

Cats[edit]

Would Wikipedians entertain the idea of having the Councils-by-state sections recategorized to "Scouting in Arizona", "Scouting in Washington", and so on, rather than a list of every council and district? The reason I would like this considered is

1) no other country's Scouting articles are divided into such minute details (except for The Scout Association of Hong Kong, and really, is that much minutiae important or interesting to the reader?)

2) many councils that a reader may choose to look up, like the Fitchburg Area Council of Massachusetts or the Vigilante Area Council of Montana, went extinct 30+ years ago, yet may be of interest in a more state-based article

3) many states like Alaska share a communal Scout history, only fairly recently being broken into smaller councils, others like North Dakota had several merged into one, and some Scouting histories are better told encompassing an entire state. The fact that Scouts in California prior to the charter of the BSA were the youth arm of the California Highway Patrol, or the fact that Connecticut, while having only eight counties, has had 22 councils over the course of its history, would be well-included in a statewide article
