Is the list on your user page authoritative or just experimental? -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 2:34 PM PDT 14 Oct 2010

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)

Writing guidelines.

"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: 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)
