Just a little note from your friendly neighbourhood dictator: all posts not to do with links have been removed (generally deleted, but the little discussion about the Whitlam decision has been preserved elsewhere).
Posts containing links will be soon-ish as well (and all links will be added to a new post, probably sorted by country and so on).

Work in progress...

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Presidential I assume?

Al made some maps, here are two of those (others in the Gallery, IIRC).

Of course. It's just that other things have a nasty habit of getting in the way. If you post links in this thread, I'll probably add them to the main list quite quickly.

I think we need more maps of places that aren't European or Anglophone. I'll get maps whenever I can put my hands on data.

May I be permitted to start a forum thread entitled "Politics of Welsh Councils" and list the composition of Welsh councils since 1995 (including by-elections)?

You can start any thread you like and call it what you like. If you're doing council composition stuff, I've got a reasonably large collection of old Whitaker's Almanack's somewhere and can give figures (though not changes caused by by-elections) for earlier years.

Yeah, agree absolutely. There's quite a bit of electoral data for South Asian countries online, but few maps of the sort we do here and (as far as I know) no good ones.

Antony Green, the amazing Australian psephologist, has compiled a list of all of his reports into elections and redistributions and other such documents. I thought that we would all probably find his excellent work to be of interest, so I am posting the link to his list here:

Germany



Superb. I had this site in my favourites from years ago but the link had stopped working some time back. I tried searching for this site more recently but couldn't find it so assumed it had disappeared altogether. Great to have it back Smiley

edit. Got some weird message about not including links. I'm talking of course about the Weimar elections site

You need a few more posts before you can post links.

And yes, that site is excellent. A few years ago I spent some time making Weimar maps. I should probably restart that sometime.

I've a few that I did but they aren't all that great so shan't bother posting them (even if I could). I used maps of current Germany so they exclude East Prussia etc.  Some I have I seem to have shaded according to the SPD vote for the 1919 election, but using the current constituencies. Presumably I just applied some kind of uniform swing based on the results in each Lander compared with 1998 or something.  A pretty blunt instrument to say the least, but just a bit of fun as they say
