- November 7, 2007
- Today is the Monthly Write-a-Thon!
- Also, today we're starting Stub Week. Yes, we're actually encouraging you to write stubs, and we're reducing the minimum length to just two sentences. It's an experiment!
- October 31, 2007
- As you probably noticed, we did a press release yesterday. We also launched a progress report. As a result, we have been Slashdotted, and that has resulted in a lot of new people arriving.
- Also, I (LMS) have decided not to pursue the organization of "What's Your Article?" at this time. Too much else to do, not enough internal interest.
- October 26, 2007
- Just a reminder: please slap Category:CZ Live on all new articles (not un-reworked Wikipedia imports) that you start!
- October 23, 2007
- There are now new links to our three main new initiatives on the main page, recruitment, Core Articles, and What's Your Article?.
- Do you think we need more people in some particular discipline? Then make a request on Recruitment and hopefully someone will be motivated to round up some new people who study that subject.
- October 18, 2007
- Recently, a recruitment campaign kicked off and has already yielded considerable dividends in terms of new accounts and several new people on the wiki. Please help spread the word!
- October 15, 2007
- Just to let you know, an editcount has been activated, see . It is supposed to be more stable than the older version.
The price is a one-day lag, something to be yet improved.To promote the work in the mainspace, one more counter has been added (percentage of edits to articles).

- Registration now takes place via Web form...and approving an application is done with a click of a constable's button. Thanks to Aaron Schwarz.
- Thanks to everyone.
- Image problems fixed.
- October 6, 2007
- Image problems: There is an intermittent problem with dispaying images right now. The technical people are aware of it.
- October 4, 2007
- There were several hours of downtime, when one of the CZ servers went down, for unknown reasons.
- Then, in the evening (7:30-8:30 PM Eastern), the entire Steadfast network and other Chicago networks went down. Again, no idea why.
- We passed 3,000 sometime probably yesterday.
