HalfEagle.com has a new feature to help answer questions about Scouting. “HalfEagle Answers” is a community of cheerful, adult Scouting volunteers and professionals ready to provide helpful answers to Scouting related questions. Members use their real identities and have to login via facebook connect.
Instead of traditional website communities, where topics can be taken over by off-topic rants and personal opinions about policies and procedures, HalfEagle Answers is different! HalfEagle Answers is set up in a way that allows logged in members to vote the best answers to the top which makes off-topic answers sink to the bottom. You can learn more about what makes HalfEagle Answers different at http://answers.halfeagle.com/about
A sample of the questions currently on the site include:
- What is the best way for young Scouting alumni (21-30) to stay involved?
- Can a parent be a merit badge counselor for their own son?
- What order are knots supposed to be worn on an adult uniform?
- Best ways to increase Scouting for Food donations
