I was wondering if there are any plans to address these issues? I have a few comments about this topic.
Using the Fire Building and Safety badge as an example, would like to see the following setup:
TH Level Badge: Requirements 1-4 should be listed in the required section. In the elective section 5, 6, 7, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 22, 23, and 24. The “vested” requirement for the higher levels should not be listed as an elective for a lower level badge. I believe that National’s position is that vested requirements can never be used as an elective for any level. But I think we can all agree that lower level should never use a higher vested requirement.
EX Level Badge: Requirements 8-12 in the required section. In the elective section 5,6,7,13,14,15,20,21,22,23,and 24. The “vested” requirement for TH cannot be used as electives for EX since they are part of the EX requirement 8.
Pi/Pa Level Badge: Requirements 16-19 in the required section. In the elective section 5,6,7,13,14,15,188.8.131.52, and 24. The "vested requirements for EX cannot be used as electives for PiPa since they are part of the PiPa requirement 16.
The other option would be to expand the EX requirement 8 or the PiPa requirement 16 in the requirement section to show all of the components. So on the EX badge the requirement 8 would be broken down to show 1, 2, 3, and 4. (Similar to the 12 nights of camping requirement)
There are a few badges that have a requirement that required for all levels, ie the creative writing badge. The first requirement is needed for all levels, and it should never be listed as an elective. So the way TT is setup, this requirement is treated as one of the electives for the higher levels.
Another idea would be from the program to only allow the appropriate number of electives to be entered. Meaning that on a TH badge only allow one elective to be selected. I understand that is a question for the programmer and may not be possible. However, it would be useful. Since girls are not supposed to reuse electives, I will look at TT to see which elective was used at a lower level. So when users over mark the elective section, it is a bit frustrating. Which brings me to my other idea - remove the “All Requirement” button. In my opinion it is a dangerous button!
I realize that this thread is over a year old, but I am hoping that this issue can be revisited.
