Welcome to the Citizendium! We hope you will contribute boldly and well. Here are pointers for a quick start. You'll probably want to know how to get started as an author. Just look at Getting Started for other helpful "startup" links, our help system and CZ:Home for the top menu of community pages. Be sure to stay abreast of events via the Citizendium-L (broadcast) mailing list (do join!) or via Twitter. You can test out editing in the sandbox if you'd like. If you need help to get going, the forum is one option. That's also where we discuss policy and proposals. You can ask any administrator for help, too. Just put a note on their "talk" page. Again, welcome and have fun!

You can find some more information about our collaboration groups if you follow this link Citizendium_Pilot:Discipline_Workgroups

Hello Alex, we do require information about your interests and educational background: a bio. Just nothing, as a minor, that actually identifies you specifically. Please see this for more info. --Larry Sanger 18:59, 8 February 2007 (CST)


why adding an image of an OS that has not all features yet implemented correctly? Wouldn't tiger suffice e.g. screenshot of exposé. you might as well add Robert Tito | Talk 20:40, 9 February 2007 (CST) How about ZFS and Time Machine then, these are certain?? Time Machine has screenshots as well (its functioning is 1 on 1 linked to ZFS I have to lookup the url's


Alex, please you have to include the copyright information in the images that you have uploaded. Thanks. --Versuri 12:52, 12 February 2007 (CST)

WP content

Hello Axel,

you seem to start your articles (at least the programming language ones) by taking a few lines from wikipedia and then adding more lines by yourself. The problem with that approach is that we basically have to create the whole article here in CZ ourselves (unless someone else copies more content over from WP) yet we are bound by the Wikipedia license (GFDL) due to the few sentences copied. If you take content from wikipedia, why not copy the whole article and then edit it (probably shorten). That way we get a whole article in exchange for license lock-in instead of just a few lines. BTW, discussion on what license we want to use for our completely locally created content is ongoing. So if we choose GFDL ourselves, there is of course no problem. --Markus Baumeister 11:11, 8 March 2007 (CST)


Hi Alex,

Got a message about your interests in programming from another CZ user here (Markus Baumeister). He suggested that I work with you on a common format for articles. Let me know where you're putting your time and I'll be glad to help out.
