I would like to make the entry Clinical_decision_support_system reach an approval stage. However, that would require active help from others interested in that area. How do we proceed? Supten 01:00, 14 December 2006 (CST)

Supten, if no one responds to you here, I recommend you post on the forums. I also wonder whether this is not better placed under the computers workgroup. I don't know, but it's just something that came to mind. One thing I want to do in the coming weeks is to form a committee that will work out the competencies of the various disciplines workgroups. --Larry Sanger 01:35, 14 December 2006 (CST)

There is neither any response here, nor in the forum [1]. Actually I am a bit confused regarding how to proceed. This was the first article that I had started work in CZ and have added substantially to the WP version. However, it is actually an interdisciplinary (superspecialized) topic and therefore even computers workgroup may not be able to address the problem adequately. Supten 23:40, 15 December 2006 (CST)
Clinical decision support system isn't really an engineering topic. It's more a Health Sciences and/or Computers topic. That's probably why the only response you got here was from Larry Sanger. Anthony Argyriou 01:56, 27 March 2007 (CDT)

Proposed Subgroups

The list of proposed subgroups is not consistent with the list of Engineering Branches listed on the main Engineering page. For example, the main page omits Software Engineering. However this pages omits Risk Engineering and Safety Engineering which is on the main page. This page includes Fire Protection, however, I see that subgroup as a subgroup of Safety Engineering.Charles F. Radley 17:31, 17 June 2007 (CDT)

Should the list on the main page have all the engineering fields listed by degree or career field? Sometimes there is a difference. Can one earn a degree in Risk Engineering? One can earn a degree in Software Engineering.--Bryan Pilati 14:45, 30 November 2007 (CST)

ToDo List

I noticed that some of the topics listed imply that overhaul or revising is needed, yet when the brought up it doesn't even exist yet. Are there other versions of these pages not linked?

Approval of Petroleum refining processes

We're working on approval of Petroleum refining processes. If you have any comments or editing improvements, please come over and discuss at Talk:Petroleum refining processes. Anthony Argyriou 12:13, 8 February 2008 (CST)

Mailing List?

I've been registered a while, but I'm finally finding more dead time that I can use to submit to CZ, but I don't just want to go around contributing all over the place. As a business minor in college, I might be able to provide some insights or writing time, but like I said, I don't want to jump in over anyone else's head. So I was wondering if there was a mailing list or something along those lines? Thanks. Thomas Owens 19:20, 16 June 2008 (CDT)
