Welcome Page

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! D. Matt Innis 22:15, 1 April 2008 (CDT)


Thanks for adding your support to the proposal for a referendum on part of the Charter. John Stephenson 15:39, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

Referendum rejection

Hi. The Managing Editor, Anthony Sebastian, has ruled your referendum proposal invalid, so it will not appear on the ballot for the July-August election. See reasoning here. You are welcome to make any alternative proposals, including on the same topic (for example, as an amendment to the Charter), but please be advised that a new proposal which does not take into account the Managing Editor's judgement is likely to be vulnerable to similar rejection. Thanks. From the Election Committee, including John Stephenson 20:31, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

OK. I disagree, but I'll rewrite this as a charter referendum anyway. Cheers, James Yolkowski 02:08, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Greetings from Christine Bush

Hi James, thanks for your words of encouragement with regards to my musings about identity policies. I'm glad to make your acquaintance and be brought up to speed on recent history in this area. I just replied to Peter Jackson (after adding a little structure to the page) with some possibilities for how this might work. It sounds like you have some excellent experience and subject area expertise with this topic. I hope you'll stay in touch. Christine Bush 00:19, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
