Hey, I don't mind at all that you change some things around, or add or take away due to trying to keep bias out, that's fantastic that you're getting involved.  I would say it's a help if you can try and stick with the format that's in place, maybe refer to other pages.  For instance the big list of organizations and individual supporters is great, but it should be followed by the same for opponents, as well as references for each to something that demonstrates that these orgs and people are, in fact, supporters.  I won't take it down, but there definitely needs to be a reference for such a list.  Also, try to stay with the same format for new references as the ones that are already listed.  Thanks and happy wiki-ing.

It doesn't strike me that the sentence belongs in the introduction.  It seems out of place there--it's just one of many things that happened...why does it get featured in the intro versus other events of the campaign? [[User:Rintintin|Rintintin]] 23:28, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
: To be honest, I don't understand what happened at the meeting or why it is important.  This may be a case where you need to say more, not less, and you're trying to take up too little space, making it confusing to me and possibly others.  Maybe you could try a separate subsection in either the supporters or opponents section.

==Inappropriate commentary in edit summaries==
Please stop using words like "silly" or "idiotic" in your edit summaries and, in general, ratchet down to zero the extent to which you make imperious assertions in place of actual arguments, discussion and dialogue about what would be best for the articles. [[User:Polycal|Polycal]] 09:52, 9 October 2010 (CDT)
thanks for your suggestion. -[[User:Hitman6999|Hitman6999]] 11:07, 10 October 2010 (CDT)
==Red links==
The edits you recently made on the Prop 19 article look they like were copied-and-pasted from a different wiki.  The citation style is not the one in use on Ballotpedia and there are many dozens of red links.  These are characteristic indications of copying material from other wikis.  Although I haven't checked, my guess is that you pulled this material from Wikipedia.  If you did, you did so without attribution.  Ballotpedia and Wikipedia do not share a copyright license and even if they did, attribution is always important.  Inserting material with many dozens of red links is to be avoided unless you're personally planning to start articles for them in the near future.  Ballotpedia has long-standing guidelines on how to handle long lists of supporters/opponents.

I am planning on starting articles for them in the future.  thanks -[[User:Hitman6999|Hitman6999]] 13:19, 10 October 2010 (CDT)
==Temporary block==
I'm blocking you for 3 days for a pattern of disruptive editing which includes:
* Rude language in edit summaries that discourages other users and creates a negative editing environment.
* Removing chunks of material from articles without seeking consensus on talk page and when doing so alluding, in edit summaries, to non-existent editing principles about which there is no consensus, such as what is or isn't appropriate in a lead section.
* Copying and pasting material from other websites without attribution, possibly violating copyright
* Making unwarranted and offensive accusations about other users
* Continuing to insert lengthy lists of supporters/opponents in articles, against long-established editing guidelines, after being asked to stop.
* Removing material from articles that states the main arguments made by supporters/opponents in official ballot guides that go to millions of voters on the theory that these arguments aren't notable, and performing the removal without seeking consensus and when doing so alluding, in edit summaries, to non-existent editing principles about which there is no consensus. [[User:Polycal|Polycal]] 11:36, 11 October 2010 (CDT)
I am wondering why you removed some of the donors from the table I created.  Why do you believe this information is not relevant?  Thank you for your contributions. [[User:Alejandortiz|Alejandortiz]] 19:54, 25 October 2010 (CDT)
I reviewed your summary, and I appreciate the updated list.  However, I'm going to insert the lower half of the donors later on after you finish your edits.  This information is still relevant and needs to be added.  Thank you again. [[User:Alejandortiz|Alejandortiz]] 19:59, 25 October 2010 (CDT)
Okay great, that sounds fine.  I understand now. Thanks! [[User:Alejandortiz|Alejandortiz]] 20:15, 25 October 2010 (CDT)
So as per your first question as to where I found my information on donors: I go [ here], then click on the "View Reports Online", scroll down to the section "Reports of Ballot Question Expenditures", then click the "Click here" link in that section and that is where I got my information.  I may be wrong in using this, but let's keep discussing this so we can get this information right.  Thanks for the help.
