Hello Rshechter,

Welcome to Congresspedia and SourceWatch. As the associate managing editor of Congresspedia, I try to greet new users and offer any guidance I can to help them get acquainted with the site. We appreciate your participation in our party identification project, and hope that you will continue editing.

Rather than update the "Members of Congress from (state)" category pages, however, we would really like editors to go onto our member profile pages and add category links noting the party of the member. For example, if you scroll down to the bottom of Nancy Boyda's page, you will see a link to "Members of Congress from Kansas", but no link to "Democratic Party (USA)". All you need to do to add this link is click "edit" on a member page, scroll to the bottom, paste "[[Category:Democratic Party (USA)]]" (or [[Category:Republican Party (USA)]] when necessary), and click "submit". We would certainly appreciate your help.

When editing on the site in general, your best reference is going to be the Congresspedia help page, which links to just about every other help or guideline page you’ll need. Feel free to use my talk page or email me at efullmer AT if I can be of any assistance.
