We've been working hard bringing you updates on everything that happened earlier this month; it's time to take a little break. This month's project is a throwback to June's collaboration of the month: pictures!
- Are you traveling over the holidays? Do your travels take you through any state capitals or famous national or state landmarks? If so, stop and snap a picture and send it to us, and we'll upload it to Ballotpedia!
- You can e-mail your photos to Jaime Beran. Please only submit original photos you've taken and give us your full name so we can include it in the copyright information.
If you have any questions about this month's project, please contact Jaime Beran.
3. Find an article you'd like to improve.
4. Start editing!
You can also view tutorials on how to edit, or contact us.
Welcome to our community! --Bailey Ludlam, Ballotpedia's managing editor
Have you had a chance to read this? It is posted on the "talk" page of the California Proposition 7 (2008) article. It's okay with me if you don't want to talk over your edits or reversions (where you delete information that others have placed in the article) on the article's talk page; it's up to you how you want to be seen as an editor. But, this does lead to a situation where others will tend to start treating you the same way; namely, just deleting your contributions without discussion. Trying to get other contributors to see your point of view--why you think something should be deleted, for example, is the type of behavior that often leads to a better article.
