Need help filling this spread-sheet out.

If we get it somewhere usable, I might write-up a little program to compare to each users.

This is really, really cool. I'll fill some of it in for sure.

Here are some websites I use:

http://www.pbs.org...

Or you can just search each candidate's name plus "on the issues" afterward.

OK. Let me give some words on how this works.

You need to answer "Pro" or "Con" for yourself, and help fill in the candidates positions.
1) Enter with proper case "Pro" "Con" as I have not bothered trying to deal with that.

2) Enter candidates position when you know, and can back it, not just you think.
* I had a col for "Soft/Strong" etc. If we like that, I can bring it back

3) If you find where I made an error (calculation etc.) you can change the protected parts, just be careful please.

4) Let me know what else you want

Looking two get help

1) fill (research) candidate positions.
2) Test the 'my position' matchup.

For me, I noticed that for Barrack Obama, my stance is "undecided," however the doc shows that I disagree with candidates that are Pro, and agree with Con.

Another thing for me, is that even though I'm listed as Con death penalty, it shows that I disagree with Sanders [who is also Con,] but agree with Clinton [who is Pro].

But this is insanely cool.

You need to (at this point) fill in (or paste values) from your own big issues.

Understand?

I can't do cross-site scripting with DDO (security) so I cant grab your current profile. Does that make sense?

No problem. I think it will be, too. You mentioned something about, once this is filled, writing up a program conducive to this chart in a more user-friendly manner. If you could pursue that (assuming you have sufficient time). That's a little ahead of my capabilities, I'm more in the learning curve of programming, haha.

Well... I think it would be very interesting. I will put in the time if people will use it. I have no issue with burning time, but have a huge issue with wasting time.

Doesn't Google Docs give the IP addresses of editors? You could always hand that IP over to Max, who would then bring down the hammer on said member (assuming that whoever did this was actually a site member).

I added a nifty chart at the bottom of the doc.

I think its odd that so few people fill in their own positions. Do you think they don't get it?
