Law professors

On the new California Proposition 19, the Marijuana Legalization Initiative (2010)#Opinion of Law Professors section you added, I have a couple of thoughts:

  • You don't provide a citation for the assertion that no law professors are opposed to 19. It's hard to prove a negative.

---> I've added a citation

  • The section is titled "Opinion of Law Professors" but it doesn't give any opinions. It's just a list.

---> The opinion is expressed in a letter signed by over 80 law professors across the country. The text of their letter appears in the citation.

  • Since it's just a list, does it really deserve an entire separate section? Isn't it just a subset of 19 supporters and as such should be added to the page about 19 supporters along with a few lines in the main supporters section noting that X number of law professors signed a statement endorsing 19?

---> No, it is not just a subset of 19 supporters. See previous response.

I'm placing this discussion on the Prop 19 talk page. Polycal 07:46, 20 October 2010 (CDT)

Edit summaries

Welcome to Ballotpedia.

This note is about the appropriate use of edit summaries when you edit an article.

Some pointers to keep in mind:

  • As part of being a good citizen on Ballotpedia, please do use the edit summary feature.
  • Edit summaries should be descriptive enough to let others know in general terms what the nature of an edit was.
  • In your edit summary, you should follow the same general community guidelines as elsewhere on Ballotpedia. For example, don't use the edit summary to attack others or their edits.
  • If your edit is minor and virtually certain to be non-controversial, you can check the box that says "This is a minor edit."
  • Generally, the "edit summary" field is not a good place to initiate or carry on a dialogue about what is best for the article. Discussions about why you're making a change, if the change is one that a reasonable person is apt to regard as significant and/or not having achieved the consensus of other people working on the article, should generally take place on the article's talk page and should generally take place before making the change.
  • If you have more to say on the article's talk page about your edit, please add something like "See talk page" to let readers know that they can find additional discussion there.
  • This screenshot tutorial provides extensive information on how to use this feature.
