Rank: Rank on this site is setup just like the patrol method in scouting. In forums, groups, etc you will see users with different levels of rank. This signifies how involved they are on the site. The higher the rank the more the user has contributed. Rank has it’s privileges… The higher rank users will be given access to test new products and services on this site first.
New member: Being a new member of the patrol means you are learning, contributing and having fun with the rest of your patrol (our other site members). By signing up for the free membership on this site you are auto-enrolled as a new patrol member. You are allowed access to all the free content (which is a lot).
Assistant Patrol Leaders (150 points): Being an assistant patrol leader means you have taken on a more serious intent on the site. You are a contributing member on this site and have worked proactively in the forums or groups. You have made some friends and have given some advice. You now have a lot of tools at your disposal to making a good unit great. We ask all our assistant patrol leaders to take the information you find here and improve it. Sharing what has worked and what needed to be changed for your circumstances.
Patrol Leader (500 points): Patrol Leaders are vital to the patrol method. They have been around the block a time or two and have seen and done a lot. Typically they have a few years of experience under their belt on a variety of topics. On this site, it means the same thing. Patrol Leaders are helping in many subject areas of scouting. They assist with questions, provide answers or can forward on questions to the person who would know the answer. Their input is highly valued.
Assistant Senior Patrol Leader (5000 points): Like in the patrol method, ASPLs are very experienced in multiple areas of scouting and can pinch-hit for a lot of duties. They assist the overall program of the troop. On this site they do the same thing. They can pinch hit for multiple forum topics and tend to moderate them. Their experience and contributions to this site is “crazy good”.
Senior Patrol Leader (10000 points): Senior Patrol Leaders are the cornerstones of their troops. They are the representation of their troop to everyone inside and outside the troop. They lead by example. They run the meetings, they run the agenda. On this site, SPLs are experts in multiple areas of scouting. They typically help consult on online classes, moderate forums and have reached the pinnacle of excellence on Learn ScoutsBSA!
