Greg, Great work on the House of Representatives pages! --Swad 10:07, 23 June 2009 (CDT)


Hey Greg! Thanks for setting up the disambiguation pages for the reps with the same name. This week I set it up so that if you add {{disambig}} to the page with the list of names, it'll show up in Special:Disambiguations and have the proper categories automatically added. Thanks! --Swad 14:33, 15 April 2009 (CDT)


For the House templates remember to change the background color according to which party holds the majority.

Republican:
|titlestyle = color:#FFFFFF; background:#E32636;
|groupstyle = color:#FFFFFF; background:#E32636;

Democrat:
|titlestyle = color:#FFFFFF; background:#6050DC;
|groupstyle = color:#FFFFFF; background:#6050DC;

Unicameral or tie:
|titlestyle = color:#FFFFFF; background:#9966CC;
|groupstyle = color:#FFFFFF; background:#9966CC;

Greg,

Remember to make the county links "interwiki" links. For example: [[Sunshinereview:Wasou County, Nevada|Wasou County, Nevada]] --Kristinpedia

"BP All-Star Award" for Massive Contributions

The more content that BP has, the higher it winds up on the Google searches. Your massive contributions are doing a lot more for BP than you realize. --Johnwynnejr 03:48, 19 December 2009 (CST)

Expansion

BP's competition (so to speak) on the left is Sourcwatch. Check out their statistics. Keep in mind they have been up since 2003:

Now check out BP's stats:

Summary: BP is expanding at an incredible rate.

Greg, the picture that excerpt of the article paints is bad for both candidates, so maybe we link to the article with a summary? That way it isn't left out, and BP retains it's encyclopedia status... --M Tuttle 13:20, 16 June 2012 (CDT)

Delaware House of Representatives

I was converting some of the Delaware Reps to the LegisLinks template, and it appears the External links were originally copied from Wikipedia. Is that true? I only ask because those articles don't exist on Wikipedia, yet there's no record of them being deleted, either. If you are responsible for saving that material, thank you. If you created it by yourself, thank you also. :-) TomJx 11:09, 14 December 2012 (CST)

Speaking of blocking out memories of creating stubs, this was my favorite announcement (at Wikipedia):

I'm a staff member at Follow the Money, I wanted to let you all know that we recently added unique candidate ID's that give a page that shows all contributions from all time to the candidate. The new structure of the url for these pages is now http://www.followthemoney.org/database/uniquecandidate.phtml?uc=#### with #### being replaced by the unique candidate id number. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 206.127.66.100 (talk) 15:44, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
