Wikipedia-style factbook entry for a Legislature Guide

Postby United States of Natan » Mon Dec 24, 2018 10:15 am

Natan's Wikipedia-Style Factbook Guides


This is a guide on how to make a Wikipedia-style factbook entry for a legislature or a legislative chamber. If you use this guide, please post your factbook entries below so that I can add them as examples (my own example will be posted shortly). If you want to, you can credit me at the bottom of the factbook.

How to make a party color square: screenshot a Wikipedia page of a legislature, crop out everything but the square in paint, and add in whatever color you want.

If there's a problem, please don't hesitate to ask on here or telegram me!

Thanks.

Soon, I will be introducing a second template to use for a legislative session (similar to the wikipedia page for the 116th Congress)

I'm gonna switch my legislature factbook format to this one, though I have a lot of reading to do, seeing all those fancy terms up there.

By "elections" does it mean something the legislature votes on or when citizens vote for members of the legislature?

The most recent election of members to the legislature (so the latter)

A session is the period in which the legislature meets. For example, the U.S. Congress meets in 2 year-long sessions.
