- It is something in between. The working page is here. Once the dots are created, Tyler posts them on his user page where we then assign them to specific parties. As you can see, it is still a work-in-progress as we have just recently added some new minor parties. Hope this helps. Did you have some suggestions/ideas/comments with respect to the colors, etc.? --Geoff Pallay 17:34, 14 October 2010 (CDT)

"While we do acknowledge and appreciate the Follow the Money aspect of the template, we do prefer to write out the full history rather than the single career profile link. I realize this creates a contradiction in the writing guidelines as both methods are described. "
- ABSOLUTELY not true. The only reason those years were EVER separate was because when I added them to Wikipedia, Follow the Money did NOT yet have a career profile link. All BP ever did was cut and paste what I did - which I find hilarious considering your libertarian, free-market, Ayn Rand claims. Or do you think the parasites and takers are the heroes? Feel free to try to spin that any way you like, but your Writing Guidelunes do NOT say what you're now claiming:
- "A link to the Follow the Money career profile page. Links to the legislator/candidate's current (if available) and previous history of campaign contributions may also be present in FEC and Open Secrets if the person has run for federal office. Some states have their own websites, such as Minnesota." See? Now please stop trying to insult my intelligence. TomJx 12:43, 16 July 2013 (CDT)
Illinois News Feeds
There appears to be a cut and paste error for the News Feed section for Illinois state legislators, going back to January 2012. Instead of looking for Illinois, it's looking for Illonois. Example: http://ballotpedia.org/wiki/index.php?title=William_Delgado&action=historysubmit&diff=1164813&oldid=1136427 I updated the above as an example. Google corrects for it, but it doesn't reflect well on BP. TomJx 08:56, 21 July 2013 (CDT)
- Got it -- thanks for catching this. I've fixed the one other page that had the same error. Tking 11:00, 22 July 2013 (CDT)

Hey TomJx, I wanted to clarify the usage of Template: LegisLinks. While we do acknowledge and appreciate the Follow the Money aspect of the template, we do prefer to write out the full history rather than the single career profile link. I realize this creates a contradiction in the writing guidelines as both methods are described. We perform a full review of our writing guidelines around this time each year, so I'll go ahead and start that process a bit ahead of time. I would also note that we will be moving all incumbents to the Legislink format during the second phase of our work to clean up incumbent profiles - scheduled to start in October. Thank you for all the work you do on the State Legislatures Project and Ballotpedia as a whole! Tking 12:01, 16 July 2013 (CDT)And exactly which October would that be? Your staff writers still appear totally unaware of LegisLinks. Typical example: http://ballotpedia.org/wiki/index.php?title=Josh_Harms&action=history TomJx (talk)

Hey TomJx, switching every legislator profile to the LegisLinks format was pushed back and is not a priority of ours at this moment. Tking 9:19, 1 May 2014 (PST)

|Hey, no kidding! I'm well aware of your current priorities: nothing but text replaces for some minor punctuation, grammar and naming changes. Was that extra $2 million in funding to ensure campaign funding, candidate statements, debates, questionnaires, issue positions and voting records were ignored? You sell out your mission statement remarkably cheaply. TomJx (talk) 11:19, 6 May 2014 (CDT)|
