"To do list"

Hi PaulD, I started a "Ballotpedia:To do list" in the hopes that it will provide an easy way for people unfamiliar with BP to start adding and/or organizing content. I think it can also serve as a touchpoint for regular BP contributors to make sure they are all on the same wavelength. Let me know what you think! Gardengnome

Ballot measures by year

Hi PaulD, I'm trying to update the "YEAR ballot measures" (for example: 1982 ballot measures) pages to be a complete list of the measures in each year. Would you be able to help out by adding Massachusetts measures to the year lists? Gardengnome 18:06, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! Gardengnome

Massachusetts Sensible Marijuana Policy Initiative (2008)

Hey paul, I just wanted to touch base with you. I think I removed some of your edits to the opposition section as well as the controversy section. I just wanted to drop you a note and let you know I didn't mean to ruffle any feathers, Im just trying to keep the page more fact based as much as I can rather then he said this and she said that quotes. It looks like both of these sides may say some things that are a bit stretching the truth to put it lightly. If possible it would be awesome if we try to source direct sources to the facts/studies/endorsements referred to by them rather then either of thier opinions. If Im out of line or deleted too much accidently and you really need something in there either hit me up on my discussion page or the page for the article and we can get it taken care of. thanks -Hitman6999 07:51, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Alaska

They sure had a lot of ballot measures in Alaska about whether or not to move the state capital, didn't they? There are still a few we don't have articles about yet. I'm planning to write a summary of the whole deal when we have articles about all the specific ones. January 12:00, 10 December 2008 (CST)
