Talk:McCain and Obama face off in U.S. presidential candidate debate

Latest comment: 15 years ago by ShakataGaNai in topic Review

I'd really like some help on this one guys! :( No idea how to do this kind of thing, but laying down the writing so others can go in and fix it up. Here's my idea.

Let's have a section for each question, which a brief summary underneath it. Then maybe cut in with comments by analysts (once I or someone else gets to that point) next to the words they're commenting on. --Poisonous (talk) 04:04, 27 September 2008 (UTC)Reply

Okay, I'm done. I'm tired of being yelled at in irc over it being too encyclopedic before it's done. Nevermind that it's a work in progress and I was planning on adding commentary, summary, background, etc, and have been working on this for a while. I'll let someone else take it over, I'm done with it. --Poisonous (talk) 05:43, 27 September 2008 (UTC)Reply

I think it is fantastic. Why bother watching the debate (Which I can assure you, I will _never_ do)? I can read this, I can skip to exactly the section I am interested in, and then go on with things. --ShakataGaNai ^_^ 06:27, 27 September 2008 (UTC)Reply

Meh, Shaka encouraged me to keep working. Will need help of others to clean it up and make it a news report. I added some debate analysis (surprisingly couldn't find much, but more will come. Here's what needs to be done

  • better intro and report to start with :(
  • summaries under sections
  • condense most quotes, and better
  • more background information

It's a little hard to read


Hello. I think it's too much text. Maybe it would be better if it was a summary of the most important words from them. Another idea might be to mark under bold text. I don't want to do it because my English is not good enough to write a news article. Cheers, --Nico89abc (talk) 22:08, 27 September 2008 (UTC)Reply
