    I assume the plan is to sell these badges? IF so you need to think about how many people are likely to buy one - is there really a market out there for one? Have you thought about a supplier and mimimum order quantities? How are you going to take orders, and payments?

    Honestly I dont think theres a demand right now for Scoutopedia blanket badges.

    Ordering a small amount of badges usually costs nearly as much as ordering large amounts due to the costs involved in set up and design.

    I know I provided the link but I do agree with Keith. You need to get the website fully sorted out with content etc. and get it known and then people might want to buy a Scoutopedia blanket badge.

    Unless you have money to burn forget it. The price point on most badges does not fall low enough until you order in excess of 500.

    Can I suggest you finish one thing before you start another.

    I believe roger is referencing to scoutopedia as a whole;

    - Network are missing
    - Jamboree section could be a LOT better, you only list 2013, what about other events? Moots etc?
    - Links section doesn't mention scouts.org.uk (I'm aware it's in the site navigation but still...) nor scout.org.uk, 2 key sites for any UK scout
    - History, there is a lot of history that isn't included in this page that could be, i don't see 1 mention of BPSA, nor BSA

    There is still a TON of work you could do to improve the site, to say it's finished in it's current state is, in my mind...lazy.

    Agreed. As you have decided to take on a massive project, you need to make sure EVERYTHING about Scouting is there.
