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 CZ:Getting Started for other helpful "startup" links, 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!) and the blog. Please also join the workgroup mailing list(s) that concern your particular interests. You can test out editing in the sandbox if you'd like. If you need help to get going, the forums is one option. That's also where we discuss policy and proposals. You can ask any constable for help, too. Me, for instance! Just put a note on their "talk" page. Again, welcome and have fun! Hayford Peirce 17:30, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
A special welcome
One of my day-to-day activities is supporting marine navigation computer systems, but it's certainly not a research area. I've done some basic articles here in that area, but I'd certainly welcome an expert. Navigation does fall into the Engineering Workgroup, in which I'm an Editor.
