User talk:Edward Gerald Black
Welcome to Citizendium as a new author! We're very glad you've joined us. We hope you will contribute boldly and well. Here are pointers for a quick start. You'll probably also want to know how to get started as an author. Just look at Getting Started for other helpful "startup" pages, and at CZ:Home for a complete listing of help and other community pages. If you wish, just ask me to create a "personal sandbox" for you where you can test out editing and writing articles. If you need help to get going, it is a good idea to join our discussion forums. That's where we discuss policy, proposals or technical problems. You can ask any constable for help, too. Just put a note on their "talk" page. Again, welcome and thank you! We appreciate your willingness to share your expertise, and we hope to see you begin actively editing and contributing to Citizendium. Milton Beychok 02:29, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
- Welcome, Edward! Milton suggested that I get in touch with you. I'm also a poet and, though I'm not a musician, I've also read some of Philip Larkin's jazz criticism.
- In addition to the (usually) helpful advice in the pages that you see when you click on such links as "Quick Start", "Start Article", "General Help", etc., in the left-hand column of the Citizendium web site, you might also find some information about how to do certain confusing wiki-related tasks in the "Howto" section of my user page, User:Bruce M. Tindall, and also in this section of Aleta Curry's user page: User:Aleta_Curry#Helpful_hints_pour_moi.
