2016 Senate Composition addition...[edit]

I'm glad that you added the Composition table, but this seems like something that could be created from arguments to a template (albeit a complicated one), have you looked into that?Naraht (talk) 18:22, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

  • Oh, yes. I've considered it. I've built these tables for Senate elections in early years (see, e.g., United States Senate elections, 1800 and 1801). You're right that it would be complicated, and I'm not confident they'd be worth it. But I'll keep considering it because it's got to be better than doing it all manually. —GoldRingChip 13:58, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

june 11-12, 1974 resolution about Baltic states - had to be 93rd US Congress, n'est-ce pas?[edit]

am editing a book now, chronology of estonia, and this statement needs verifying. that US congress passed some resolution or smth, about not recognizing annexion of Baltic countries to Soviet Union, in june 11-12, 1974. maybe you could help? i did all googleing i could, but to no avail. actually, the year might be wrong, or anything, i've already spotted several signs that compiler of the book is not very scrupulous about things and days. if source is possible to find, it would be nice addition to wiki article about soviet occupation in (annexion thereof) baltics; actually, as there is no mentioning of 1974 resolution in this article, i started to doubt about that at all. US senate and house of representatives, this chronology book says, were dicussing 'baltic question' and passed the resolution. i'm afraid to be lost here in wiki-jungle, could you please reply to my talk page?

  • I'm sorry, I know nothing about it. However, H.Con.Res. 128 a non-binding resolution (i.e. not an Act of Congress), passed in 2005: "Expresses the sense of Congress that the government of the Russian Federation should issue an unambiguous admission and condemnation of the illegal occupation and annexation by the Soviet Union from 1940 to 1991 of the Baltic countries of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania." Is that what you're looking for?—GoldRingChip 21:23, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

Ohio's 8th[edit]

What is your problem? Why must you undo all the work given to that list? You gave neither rationale nor reason for your changes. There was no party color problem, I was using accurate colors for the Democratic and Republican Parties. I don't see how adding the fact someone (two) were Speaker isn't relevant in the notes section of the list. Your formatting is poor, and is unacceptable on the mobile format. There is a reason why portraits and names ought to be separated, otherwise the table falls apart on mobile platforms. There is a reason why the term dates are separated by breaks atop and below a dash, as they format well on desktop and mobile setups. You obviously didn't like my changes so you completely tear them apart? Why not discuss them? My changes had basis, rationale, practical considerations, and were necessary to fit with visibility concerns.   Spartan7W §   00:39, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

Template:United States political party shading key 2[edit]

Color inconsistency[edit]

Hey G, I found some color inconsistency with two political parties at your template, concerning meta/color and party shadings.
The two parties which are affected by this are the (non-party) Independent and National Republican parties.
The inconsistency is for meta/color only, where the template shows it as being identical to party shadings.
The actual meta/color for Independent is DDDDDD, and for National Republican it is F0F071.


      National Republican


Party shadings[edit]

fdfd7f Independent
E6E6AA Federalist
AACC99 Democratic-Republican
FFE6B0 National Republican
B0CEFF Democratic
FFB6B6 Republican

Meta/color and party shadings[edit]

Party Meta/color Party shading
Independent DDDDDD fdfd7f
Federalist EA9978 E6E6AA
Democratic-Republican 008000 AACC99
National Republican F0F071 FFE6B0
Democratic 3333FF B0CEFF
Republican FF3333 FFB6B6

I hope you can make the necessary adjustments. Thanks! Best, --Discographer (talk) 21:06, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
