It's a good thing to remember that whatever you put on your page,
can be read by EVERYONE.  Privacy should be a major concern.  Do
not identify anyone by full name, address (electronic or real), or
phone number without his or her permission.  And for youth members,
probably that is not even sufficient--use only first names and/or
initials, if anything at all.

There have been discussions on Scouts-L and rec.scouting.* on the 
use of full names of Scouts on web pages, but no one has offered a 
convincing argument that it adds any value to the page that would not 
be there if only the first names or first names and initials were used.  
Perhaps it is true that it would be harmless to list full names, but 
what if it's not?  

I have received a report from one unit that experienced an attempt 
by a pedophile to contact members of the unit electronically.  What 
if one of your Scouts were the victim of such an approach?  What you 
say to the parents?

Take a look at these suggestions from Chris Jacobi:

Also check whether there are any local laws or rules of your Scouting
organization that apply to putting other information on your pages.
