I have consolidated the two subsections in this article into two different sections listed as "supporters" and "opponents", for now. As the sections grow and more quotes, arguments, campaign finance information and other information is added into these sections, they will be separated into subsections. For now though, any information from supporters and opponents should be simply added to these sections. You can also refer to this page to help you on how to order different components of a Ballotpedia ballot measure article.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me on my talk page, as I will be the staff writer expanding this article. You can also e-mail me at email@example.com. Thanks! Alejandortiz 08:52, 25 August 2011 (CDT)
I recently noticed a lot of your edits on the ballot measure articles related to "assisted suicide." Prior to making such drastic changes (i.e. changing the title of articles or category names) we encourage writers to discuss their dispute on talk pages. Assisted suicide has always been a controversial topic. Some argue it should be "dieing with dignity" or "aid in dying." As such, we generally, stick to the most commonly understood term - "assisted suicide." We do not name our articles after the nicknames used by support or opposition campaigns. This is done to maintain a neutral title. We also do not always name articles after what is filed with the Secretaries of State because more often than not those titles are submitted by supporting campaigns (those who file the initiatives). In general, we use descriptive words (as neutral as possible) and the official number provided by the state (i.e. prop 2 or amendment 5).
For now, I will reverse your edits. However, we'd love to hear your comments. Feel free to leave a response here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

When the current title conforms to Ballotpedia's naming conventions but you nevertheless believe that the article would be better served with a different title, you should initiate a discussion about your preference on the article's talk page and work toward consensus before moving the page.
If you recently moved a page without going through these steps, the page may have been restored to its original title. If so, and you continue to believe that the article would be better served with a different title, you are encouraged to open a discussion on the article's talk page regarding your views on an appropriate title for the article.
