There’s been some discussions about our recent entries on 2012 election candidates (thread link), so here is an overdue announcement post that will hopefully help people understand our reasoning behind it. To keep it short & sweet, we will be working on Republican candidate person entries as part of our special U.S. election coverage in the coming months. And simliar to our special coverages before this, we would love to open up this opportunity to everyone else who is interested in tracking & following this topic. In the following weeks, we’ll be working closely on the following list of items:
- Entries on the election candidates, election events (debates, primaries) & related memes
- Revisit and cover related entries from previous elections in the U.S. and elsewhere
- Launch a separate tab in /memes section & navigation bar for 2012 election-related entries
If you have any ideas or suggestions as to how we can best cover this topic from the Internet’s point of view, please share in this thread. Also, if you’re wondering how you can participate in this research experiment, it’s easy! Just request editorship on any and all election-related entries and it will be granted as long as you express genuine interest on the topic.
*Updated (1/26/2012): Proceed to KYMdb – 2012 Republican Presidential Primary.
