Marine Corps

Marine Corps is on my list for the Big Cleanup project. I'm marking its status as more than a stub but not ready, mainly because it's so new. If that's wrong, please check it on the Talk page for the article.

Redact or expand at your pleasure. I just noted that it wasn't about the USMC specifically.--David Marcoe 16:53, 11 April 2007 (CDT)

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 CZ:Workgroups.You can always ask me on my talk page or others about how to proceed or any other question you might have.

Made the adjustment

Hi Daniel,

 Sorry about that, the topic informant tag was made in error during my tirade of cleanups.  Thanks for catching my error.  I've cleaned it up.  Let me know if I can be of any use in helping you build up this or any article you're working on.

Manning Clark

Thanks for your note. I'm not sure I really understand it, but the position is this. I wrote a complete new Manning Clark article for WP. That article has of course been edited by various others at WP since I wrote it. When I left WP, I copied my original version of the article and posted it here. Thus, when I posted it, every word of the article was my original work. I didn't use the "copied from WP" tag because it would then like I had just copied a WP article to CZ without editing it or intending to edit it, which I gather is against the CZ procedure. Feel free to puta ny tag on it you think appropriate. Please advise me what "big cleanup" you think the article needs. Adam Carr 21:14, 11 April 2007 (CDT)

Please join us for Biology Week!

Hello Daniel,

I am giving you this personal invitation to join us this week for Biology Week!

You're a Citizendium Biology Author and we need authors as much as editors here to get involved. Did you know that there are over 200 biology authors here? Yep!

Please join us on the wiki and add or revise biology articles. Also, please let your friends and colleagues who are biologists, biology students, or naturalists, know about Biology Week and ask them to join us, too. Any way you can help make it an event would be most welcome. Think of it as a Biology Workgroup open house. Let's see if we can kick up activity a notch!

Thanks in advance! --Larry Sanger 13:02, 22 September 2008 (CDT)
