Tasks: start a new article • add basic, wanted or requested articles • categorize pagesadd definitionsadd metadata • edit new pages

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.

Have fun and Happy editing!

Well, don't leave us hanging! Is this a reference to algebraic groups? algebraic groups over finite fields? Greg Woodhouse 14:22, 18 June 2007 (CDT)

Prime ideals

Dear Harald, thank you for your contributions, especially those to number theory. They are great. I came across your name because you added something to our article on prime numbers. Specifically, the following sentence intrigued me: "Algebraic integers factorize uniquely into prime ideals". Given your background, I'm sure you know what you're talking about, but I'd have thought that a prime ideal is a certain kind of ideal, thus a set, and it seems strange to factor a number in sets. I'm just mentioning it on the off-chance that you may have overlooked something.

Anyway, I hope that you'll continue to contribute. It would be great if you could finish the article on number theory. Unfortunately, I won't be able to help you with that — I haven't even done a single course on number theory. If you have any questions about the organization or the software though, I'll be happy to help. I'm also an editor in mathematics, meaning that I can approve articles, so please let me know if you're reasonably happy with an article. Incidentally, I had a short look at your home page and I'm sure that you will also become an editor if you apply for it. But above all, I hope you'll enjoy yourself here.

Best wishes,

Welcome Page

Welcome, new editor! We're very glad you've joined us. Here are pointers for a quick start. Also, when you get a chance, please read The Editor Role. You can look at Getting Started and our help system for other introductory pages. It is also important, for project-wide matters, to join the Citizendium-L (broadcast) mailing list. Announcements are also available 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 thank you! We appreciate your willingness to share your expertise, and we hope to see your edits on Recent changes soon. --Larry Sanger 10:05, 2 December 2007 (CST)

You deserve to be credited...

Well, I see you were working away on party day, which makes you one of the shy boys. I’ll have to come and drag you in next month! Aleta Curry 23:44, 9 December 2007 (CST)

Reinforcements

Hi Harald. A new editor specializing in number theory just joined us: Barry R. Smith. Hopefully, you'll together be able to write and approve some nice articles. -- Jitse Niesen 08:51, 27 March 2008 (CDT)

Introduction

Hi Harald. Thanks for introducing yourself. I look forward to working with you!Barry R. Smith 09:25, 8 May 2008 (CDT)

Happy New Year

... to you as well. Richard Pinch 18:54, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

Approvals?

There area number of articles in cryptography that may be near approval. list. Some, such as RSA and discrete logarithm, really need a math editor to improve or approve them. Sandy Harris 04:58, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Welcome back

Welcome back! It could be nice to have three active math editors; yesterday we had only two :-) Boris Tsirelson 18:05, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

bio

Hello. Even if you are inactive you still need your bio, don't you? (Chunbum Park 14:57, 11 October 2011 (UTC))

Hi Harold, yes, since you've been active here and made some big contributions, we'll need to keep an active bio on your user page. If you'd like to update it, that would be fine. Otherwise, I can replace the previous version for you. D. Matt Innis 17:32, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

Also, can you take a look here for me. D. Matt Innis 17:36, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

Reality

You might like to have a look at what's said about mathematics here. There's been some discussion already. Peter Jackson 10:52, 10 November 2011 (UTC)

History of number theory

Hi Harold, thanks for the response on my talk page. In order to avoid copyright infringement claims, you can use a message at the top of the talk page something like the one here. It would be even more helpful if you could locate the exact version at wikipedia that you created and linked it here. That way there would be no question a few years from now when someone tries to say that Wikipedia is due credit. Thanks for your hard work! D. Matt Innis 22:06, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
