Pakistan debate

Hey Rahman, I've done some work on your work, in an attempt to help guide you along. Couple notes: 1. The "claim" is a very important part of each argument. It is the first sentence, and acts as the header or summary of the argument, so that you and others can understand exactly what that argument paragraph is going to be about. 2. Make sure your pros and cons are on the right "side" of the debate. 3. Footnotes should be provided for facts that are provided on the debate page (simply the source url with brackets around it). 4. I'll show you how to create argument pages and gather supporting evidence soon. -- Brooks Lindsay 19:09, 24 January 2008 (CST)

External links

To understand how to do anything, generally find a place where it's done the way you want it to be done, click "edit", and observe the wiki code that's used to produce what you want to reproduce. To make an external link, write the following in an editing window: [ Nicholas Kristof. "China’s Genocide Olympics". New York Times. January 24, 2008], which produces, Nicholas Kristof. "China’s Genocide Olympics". New York Times. January 24, 2008. If you want simply to make a footnote, simply put a bracket on either side of the source url. If you want to make an internal link to another wiki page, write the title of the wiki page you want to link to and put two brackets on either side of it. -- Brooks Lindsay 16:24, 24 January 2008 (CST)

Pro/con resources first

Hey Rahman, you'll want to start off your efforts on your debate by developing the pro/con resources section. I'll help a little with this. -- Brooks Lindsay 19:13, 15 January 2008 (CST)


Hey Rahman! Welcome. Use these user page discussion pages as a means of communication with other users. -- Brooks Lindsay 17:31, 14 January 2008 (CST)
