- SPAM Alert: - It has been reported that a number of our members have received unsolicited e-mails that appear to have been sent from the organization. Please be aware that the BSA does not send e-mails of this nature, nor is there any agreement in place to allow third parties to send messages using our domains. Please disregard any such messages you may receive and inform your members to do the same.
- New Leader Essentials - There appears to have been at least one official communication (a memo) that suggested that New Leader Essentials will be added to the Online Learning Center this year. Regrettably, this is incorrect. NLE was one of several courses considered for addition to the OLC, but a project to develop this training has not been initiated (or even approved). It is very unlikely the course will be added this year. Should this project be initiated, a notice will be posted in the Maintenance Logs.
- Online Learning Center Bug - People who attempt to create an account at the Online Learning Center (olc.scouting.org) using the new version (7) of Internet Explorer are unable to complete the form because a graphic is blocking text entry fields. It may be possible for them to complete the form by using the tab key (rather than the mouse) to navigate the form fields ... otherwise, they may need to try a different Web browser (firefox, netscape, etc., or an older version of IE). We are currently working on a new login system that will replace the current one and hope this problem will be solved when the new "MyScouting" portal is rolled out.
