- With the harsh winter weather our readers have dealt with over the past few months, we at Ballotpedia think that we all could use some sunshine!
Sunshine Week is a national initiative to promote a dialogue about the importance of open government and freedom of information. Sunshine Week seeks to enlighten and empower people to play an active role in their government at all levels and to give them access to information that makes their lives better and their communities stronger. Essentially, the public has a right to know what its government is doing, and why.
- In honor of Sunshine Week (March 16 - 22), Ballotpedia is bringing to you: Thirty-one days of sunshine. Each day in March, we will be "shining a light on" one of our pages that contains important information that we want our readers to know. Not only will we post the running list of pages here, but they will also be posted on Ballotpedia's Facebook, Twitter and our main page.
- Stay tuned for our daily updates!
- Please contact Jaime Beran if you have any questions specific to this month's project.

Hi Jaime! Welcome to BP. BaileyL 10:03, 23 April 2013 (CDT)
Jaime, that 'new feature' has been in place since April 6, 2011 - over two years ago. The Career Profile parameter for Follow the Money was in place when the Template was first created on that date. Geoff, Bailey and Tyler have all been involved with that Template. At that time, At that time, Geoff was in charge of both Congress and State and redirected the CongLinks and GovLinks versions into LegisLinks for consistency, although they have since split for formatting reasons. Everything was discussed and approved, but apparently the updates to the Writing Guidelines slipped through the cracks. I later updated them when I came across them in November 2012. Tyler reverted them, and then shortly re-reverted them. Nothing since, other than a minor change Bailey made yesterday. Now eight months later this is suddenly a 'new feature' no one ever heard about? No. I suggest you talk to those involved rather than blaming me for things that simply didn't happen as you claim. I think the heat's getting to all of you. TomJx 10:45, 17 July 2013 (CDT)
