Scouting in South West England and Dorset Scout County[edit]

I have removed the list of scout Groups as there is a strong consensus built up over many years that wikipedia is not the place to list them. Take a look at the other Counties in this article and the similar articles for other regions. There are no lists of Groups. The same is true for articles on Scouting in other countries. There are many reasons for this and you will find the discussions if you search in the archives of the Scouting Project. One is that they are impossible to maintain. Editors add or remove Groups with no sources, How are we to know that removing a group is accurate and not perhaps spite at a rival mob? I do not see this consensus changing. You will be wasting your time arguing on the talk page for the list to be reinserted. You should certainly not edit war on this. --Bduke (Discussion) 21:40, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

I should have added that the place to list Scout Groups is the Scout Wiki, although it has few supporters and does cover anything like everything in the way wikipedia does. --Bduke (Discussion) 21:44, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
