Sortable Indices

Would there be merit in converting the category indices (such as this one) to using the honor_entry template as opposed to correcting the stage info here?

Yes please. Love the sortable lists too, but with three sections on this page not sure how that works. JadeDragon (talk) 07:10, 22 October 2014 (EDT)
"which are distributed outside of North America." Do you mean NAD or the continent? Remember that Mexico is part of North America geographically, but of the Interamerican Division. Is ACS now offered in Canada? Or still only ADRA? While official documents might state NAD is using ACS, reality might be very different. -- w126jep (talk) 08:41, 22 October 2014 (EDT)
The three sections could be maintained separately by simply creating three different sortable tables. And yes, the ADRA/ACS honors are still something of a mess. Basically, the ACS honors should be used inside the NAD where ACS operates, and ADRA should be used everywhere ADRA operates, including those parts of the NAD where it is active (Canada). IMO, the GC should unify those honors by offering ADRA/ACS options, but I don't call the shots. --Jomegat (talk) 08:54, 22 October 2014 (EDT)
ADRA Canada is a funding agency for ADRA in other parts of the world. They also do grants for community service projects inside Canada but I understand we can not use the ADRA name on these projects or in our local Canadian churches outside of fundraising appeals for ADRA.

Great Additional Source

Not sure where to put this in. This is a Creditable 2hr Continuing Education Value Community Services course on Adventist Learning Community. Following the course handles almost all the questions in the Adventist Community Services Honours. It has resources and it is very well done. It starts off with Demographics, Analyzing your community, Demographics. It has assignments and quizzes. Very Informational Adventist Community Services --Ixoekea (talk) 04:53, 5 December 2017 (UTC)

Very cool. I think it might be a good idea to create a page with this information (perhaps in an info box) and transclude it in the ACS section of this page as well as in each honor (perhaps between the honor_desc and the first requirement). --Jomegat (talk) 05:08, 5 December 2017 (UTC)

Mix ACS into Outreach honors

At the last video/teleconference for the NAD AY Honors Committee, it was requested that that ACS honors NOT be separated into their own table, but that they should be included and only considered as part of the Spiritual Development, Outreach, & Heritage category. The reasoning was that there are no official "church department AY honors". For example, the Stewardship honor was not made by or for the Stewardship Department, the Teaching honor was not made by or for the Education Department, the Family Life honor was not made by or for the Family Ministries Department, etc. The ACS honors should be seen as community service honors and the NAD happens to also have a department for community services; not that they are linked. ADRA is not NAD so that has no bearing. --w126jep (talk) 14:00, 10 October 2018 (EDT)
