Thank you for contributions to Laura Wells. If you and only you wrote an article on Wikipedia, you're actually the copyright holder for that text so you can transfer it to any other website unchanged...as I understand it. If there's a public domain photograph of Wells or if you can obtain permission from her or her campaign, we can also add an infobox with her photograph here. Let me know if you'd like help with any of that. Also, I'm planning to write articles about challengers for state senate and state assembly and if you'd like to help with that project by writing articles about Green challengers, that would be great. I probably won't start on this until after the June primary. Polycal 07:30, 6 February 2010 (CST)

Hi, yes, I am the only writer of that article. I did use quotes from others but cited them. I do have a photo I am trying to get added and will let you know if I need help. The photographer has given me permission to use it but she herself doesn't have the time to register and post the info herself. I will consider the other articles also, thanks.
The atmosphere here is always such a relief compared to wikipedia. Greengov2010 11:02, 6 February 2010 (CST)
I just remembered that I started an article about Jane Rands earlier this year. The category Category:Legislative candidate, Green, California, 2010 for that article is what you could use if you want to write articles about Green legislative candidates. Not to make any assumptions about what a Green writer would be interested in but you might also take a look at Category:Zoning, land use and development, California. If you get permission to add a photo all you have to do when you upload it is type on the upload page "This copyright holder of this photograph gave this user permission to upload it for use on Ballotpedia". The photo is not licensed for re-use elsewhere (or "The photo is available for re-use elsewhere under the GDLF license" or whatever the copyright holder has said about that.) Unlike text, which when a writer submits it must be licensed for re-use under the GDFL license, users can upload photographs with more limited, or no, re-use rights elsewhere.
