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! David Tribe 15:10, 25 January 2007 (CST)

CZ International

Hi! I’m just letting people who have expressed an interest in CZ International know that there is now a proposal on the table.

Please discuss its feasibility at: CZ:Proposals/Internationalisation sandbox in the Discussion area.

Feel free to help develop the proposal, as well.

We'll also need "drivers".

If you've got no idea what I'm talking about, please refer to: CZ:Proposals/New and CZ:Proposals

World domination

Bustin' a gut laughing! Thanks! That was funny! Aleta Curry 17:18, 20 February 2008 (CST)

Glad, I could make your day a bit. But still, after more than 60 years, world domination sounds strange when read in German language.Jens Mildner 15:15, 21 February 2008 (CST)

Your proposal "A new subpage for translations of approved articles"

Hello. The proposal record for "A new subpage for translations of approved articles", for which you are listed as driver, says that the current step (write implementation list) was due to be completed 2 March. Could you please update the proposal record on CZ:Proposals/Executive, changing your self-imposed deadline and perhaps the next step?

I saw you wrote that you're lacking time right now to develop the proposal. If this is not going to change any time soon, then it's better if somebody else takes over the proposal and become its "driver". However, if no driver can be found and you're unable to work on the proposal, then it will become inactive.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me. -- The Proposals Manager, Jitse Niesen 17:19, 7 March 2008 (CST)

You do need to specify in the proposal record exactly what happens next and when you expect it to be finished (the deadline is not a real deadline because you can always extend it if necessary). If you have no idea, here's a suggestion. Since you just updated the proposal, start with awaiting comment, say for a week. After the week has passed, you can decide to tweak the proposal again (if some good points were raised during the discussion), or submit the proposal to the Executive Committee (if there were no comments or only supporting one) or just continue the discussions.

The proposal system is designed to make it always clear what is supposed to happen next. Otherwise, ideas often stall for no good reason. See CZ:Proposals/Policy for more information, especially the section "Keeping the proposal moving along".

So please put something more definite in the proposal record on CZ:Proposals/Executive. -- Jitse Niesen 17:54, 8 March 2008 (CST)

Hi Jens. What, if anything, has happened? I guess you submitted the proposal to Larry Sanger with a view to get approved by to the Executive Council. If so, perhaps you should remind Larry of it. Cheers, Jitse Niesen 10:45, 20 April 2008 (CDT)

Restart of proposal system

Hello. Due to a lack of activity and attention on my part, the Proposal System has ground to a halt and discussion on all proposals has stopped. I decided to clean out the system by marking all proposals as inactive and removing their drivers. This also happened to your proposal "A new subpage for translations of approved articles". I would be delighted if you decide that you want to take the proposal up again. You can do this by updating the proposal record, which can now be found at CZ:Proposals/Driverless. Please do not hesitate to ask if anything is unclear. Yours, Jitse Niesen 22:37, 23 February 2009 (UTC) (Proposals Manager)

Note from Managing Editor

Hi Jens. Thank your for your May 2013 donation, and for correcting your username on the honor roll.

On your user page you say your English is not good enough for you to contribute content. It seems good enough to me. Why not try your hand at editing an article, or even starting a new one. If something you write is unclear, someone will edit it, or discuss alternative wordings on the article's Talk page. Anthony.Sebastian 22:42, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
